Trigger christians with a single sentence.

The Old Testament includes an abortion procedure performed by god
Yep, if a husband suspects his wife of cheating, he can have a priest perform an abortion.
It’s always a blast listening to the different rationales for this. They always say “it doesn’t mean THAT! And who knows what it means by her thigh will rot and she will become barren? Surely it doesn’t mean she loses the kid. And even if it does it’s just dirt which we know can’t cause an abortion.”
Damn, how have I never heard about this?! I guess the cult of choice my Christian parents brought me up in wanted to shelter me from the idea that abortions were godly.
Numbers 5 I think…. I could be wrong
You are correct. It is Numbers 5.
They always told me to skip Numbers😂. And when I finally read it I saw why.
Yikes. Information control right there.
Yes! This is my favorite one.
I'm not a Christian and I'm not interested in becoming one, thanks.
"Sorry mate, been there, done that".
According to Matthew 24, Jesus is a blatant false prophet, and therefore cannot be our saviour.
Just curious, what specifically is in this passage as proof? The temple stones or the generation not passing away before the return?
Generation not passing away before "all these things take place".
Even if the things he described earlier in the chapter weren't about the apocalypse (they are), none of the things that he said would happen came within a generation, nor at any other time really.
It's a false prophecy no matter how you look at it.
I had always understood that prophecy as some of those disciples will not die before witnessing the true glory of God, which was fulfilled at the transfiguration. what are your thoughts on this interpretation?
Matthew 24 and Mark 13 are delivered AFTER the transfiguration, so the passage I'm most concerned with can't be talking about the transfiguration.
Upon further inspection and literary criticism, Jesus actually didn’t say most of what was in Matthew 24 (to further trigger Christians).
In fact, this was retroactively attributed to Jesus to explain the razing and destruction of Jerusalem, hence the metaphors of judgment and the phrase “this generation shall not pass away until these things take place.”
Add Mark 13 to that as well.
Polygamy is biblical
Getting blackout drunk and having an orgy with your daughters in a cave is more Biblically correct than non-incestuous monogamy.
Don't forget "marriage" to your slave. Can't have biblical, godly morality without sexual slavery.
This could be a translation discrepancy but I always read Lot’s daughters got him drunk and raped him to have kids.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse..
Jesus hung out with 12 dudes and Peter was his "rock."🏳️🌈
And he and Judas kissed
Was really hoping this was a personal invitation
Separation of church and state
No thank you, I don’t want to pray for the food.
There are religions other than yours.
Why are you guys against gays? Its the "bi'ble not the "straight"ble...
Aha! Checkmate christians
It's *straight* to hell not gay to hell
[In Ron Swanson voice] "I know more than you".
The Bible had donkey dicks and horse jizz.
God says you don’t speak for her.
Freedom of religion also includes freedom from religion.
Freedom of religion involves freedom for religions they don’t like.
It also involves freedom of other religions.
If god ever cared about babies why did he slaughter the ones from Egypt?
And Amalek, and didn't stop Herod from having a bruh moment
Fuck the holy spirit
Say it loud!
Virgin Mary - been there done that
"The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.”
The "Pro-Life" God, Hosea 13:16
I'm an exchristian
I fear no gods I know how to kill.
If Jesus comes back we'll just kill him again, and again, and again until he finally gets the message and stays dead. Fortunately from the looks of it it seems that once was enough.
Na. Jesus has come back lots of times. The problem is he keeps ending up in a mental ward with every one else who thinks they're Jesus. It's really frustrating.
*How many times do we have to teach you this lesson, old man?!*
Ok you win congratulations 👏
Not just Jesus. His father as well.
I've seen this phrase used on this sub multiple times. Is this a quote from something?
I've been saying it for years. The Bible tells us (for reasons we can't begin to fathom, probably laziness) what we can use to negate or kill the god of Abraham: iron.
Ah yes, that's right. A quick google search helped me find 2 Kings 3:26-27, which suggests that the god of the Moabites was stronger than the Abrahamic god.
Also, even though the scriptures don't say it explicitly the common dogma says Jesus was fixed to the cross with iron nails and died within hours. Considering that the vast majority of crucifixion victims took days to die, that makes for an interesting data point.
The universe is billions of years old.
Ezekial 16:49 Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy.
You can't say you love people and threaten to torture them for eternity, it's insane.
David and Jonathan’s love surpassed the friendship level considering David openly declared that he loved Jonathan more than women and that Jonathan said their souls were bound.
The whole David and Jonathan story always makes me think of Achilles and Patroclus. Pretty sure both are couples.
When I was a Christian, this one offended me:
"Jesus was a rape baby"
Now that I think about it, God basically told Mary "I chose YOU to have my son". What was she supposed to do, refuse (and have her womb closed as punishment or something, knowing how wicked Yahweh of the Bible is)?
Judge not lest ye be judged.
Your clubhouses should be taxed.
Paraphrasing Bill Hicks:
"You're not pro life! If you were pro-life, you'd be protesting funerals, attacking the casket with crowbars, yelling 'Get Up! you're not that sick!'"
Christmas has more Pagan roots than Halloween.
"Why do you need weekly love bombs and rah-rah sessions to 'spread the gospel' if it's always the same people?"
Jesus was only a man.
Just some guy
Wasn’t actually a full 3 days now, was it?
The Bible called a man "just" even though he offered his virgin daughters to get gang raped by an angry mob and later, said daughters got him drunk and raped him.
That oughta do it.
Username checks out
The Bible teaches twisted morals.
I believe in God but think Christianity is wrong.
I don’t blame you.
Creation is false and Evolution is true and since Evolution is true that means that the fall of man didn't happen so therefore there is no Savior as it isn't needed therefore nothing in the Bible is true.
God isn’t good
It's the same religion, give or take 1 or 2 things, as the Muslims you hate so much.
Sin is a concept, so there’s no need for “salvation” from it.
God is a narcissist
The bible is full of contradictions, historical and mathematical errors.
Almost everything in the Bible contradicts itself
Trump was not God and republicans are Satanists
Hey now, no reason to annoy the Satanists.
Im saying as a triggering mechanicanism for christians tho ...you know how much they hate being name called because they dont name call
Atheists are not "bad" or "rude" or oppressing you if they tell you no, you cannot pray for them or no, they won't pray with you (and yes, you are a bad person if you ignore those statements.)
Communion is symbolic cannibalism and Jesus was a human sacrifice whose flesh and blood Christians pretend to consume in order to steal his spirit.
Bonus points: Jesus was definitely a false prophet, didn't fulfill one actual Messiah prophesy, and the Jews were correct to kill him according to the commands of the Old Testament god. Worshipping Jesus is idolatry.
I left Christianity and am now Jewish.
Oh boy now you'll get hate from both christians and jews
Oddly enough less from the Jews than you would think. Lol. My conversion may not have been up to Halacha standards of orthodoxy but I had the period of study, Beit Dein and Mikveh dunk. Most Jews I have come across see me as Jewish, and I won’t mess around with those that don’t. Wouldn’t matter for most anyway since I wouldn’t count for minyan as a woman.
Jesus was a false prophet
Thanks to AronRa for that one
If I may inquire, what comments of his are you referring to?
Not really his comments, more relating to a recent interview he conducted. Here's the video:
Oh. Okay. Thank you.
[Fake demonic possession.](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Szqwm2-kUJY)
I believed in a lot of different fairy tales before I grew up.
Im Buddhist, lead a nominally moral life and have no room in my cosmology for your concept of god.
god is not real and you can't convince me otherwise and if you try i will file harassment charges
All religion is bullshit.
I was going to remove your comment as applying too broad a brush for this subreddit, but in the context of the question I'm going to allow it.
For future comments, please remember this is an all-inclusive exchristian sub, not an atheist sub. Many of our users have other spiritual beliefs since leaving Christianity. Blanket statements deriding all people with any form of spiritual beliefs at all is not allowed. Please post generalized anti-theist material at r/antitheism, r/atheism, r/DebateAChristian, r/DebateAnAtheist or other appropriate subs. Anyone of any belief, including Christianity, should feel safe and welcome here so long as they follow the rules, including rule 3.
This is massively hypocritical. Most religions have blanket statements deriding every other beliefset. Why are we not allowed to do the same?
I'm sorry you feel that way. If it's not acceptable to you, we won't hold it against you if you find other subreddits more to your taste.
The point of this subreddit is not to deride religion in general. It is to help people out of one specific religion. Until recently, ex-Christians who didn't turn to atheism have been feeling shut out of this subreddit because they felt attacked.
We don't allow anyone to proselytize here, not Muslims or Christians or Hindus or Buddhists or atheists. If you can't confine your criticism to Christianity, please refrain from participating here.
So they want to adhere to a belief that attacks everyone else without being attacked themselves? And we're catering to this while mocking it in Christianity?
Letting religion--any religion--have it's cake and Fuck it too is one of the main reasons religion is so problematic. If people don't want to be attacked them they shouldn't throw the first stone. coddling these people is not helping no matter how "shut out" they feel.
But sure, I'm the one who can't play nice.
> So they want to adhere to a belief that attacks everyone else without being attacked themselves?
They don't. Disrespect isn't allowed here either. Again: our focus is narrow.
> And we're catering to this while mocking it in Christianity?
No, we're simply holding everyone to the same standard. We're not giving atheists a pass while holding everyone else to a different level of civility.
> Letting religion--any religion--have it's cake and Fuck it too is one of the main reasons religion is so problematic. If people don't want to be attacked them they shouldn't throw the first stone. coddling these people is not helping no matter how "shut out" they feel.
Perhaps you could point me to an example of this. Because if it's something we missed, we'll be happy to redress it once it's called to our attention.
> But sure, I'm the one who can't play nice.
No one has accused you of not playing nice. I'm simply informing you of how the rules are being applied. I'm also informing you that if you don't feel you can abide by that application of the rules we will understand if you choose to end your participation here.
“God bless you,” or “have a blessed day.” But only use it on disrespectful, self-entitled assholes. (I work in a restaurant in the Bible Belt.)
Jesus is not an American.
God condones slavery, and no it’s not like indentured servitude, it’s beat your slave as much as you want—just don’t kill him.
www.jesusneverexisted.com by Kenneth Humphrey. Now that's a site to piss someone off and actually educational!
Slavery was sanctioned on the old testament. And the new testament, as Paul said slaves obey your master.
Muslims, Jews and Christians serve the same God
I lost my virginity in a church…. With your pastor.
The atheists I know are, on average, nore moral (by Christian standards) than Christians
Two words: "Prove it."
A classic: God isn’t real.
I'm trans-ing my gender, and you can't stop me!
The Bible condemns pedophilia not homosexuality
The Bible says salvation is by works if you are circumcised. (Galatians 5:2-3)
Jesus smelled bad
Oh my god
I AM GOD!
