Have Christians even Read the Bible?

Well, to be honest, I've been really bored lately for lack of a debate. So I thought I'd start one. I'm not trying to piss people off, just trying to start a good debate.

Watch this video. Most of you know the information in the video, but it's a good video that goes over how repulsive the Bible is. Anyone that has read the Bible should know how disgusting the actions are in the Bible, but Christians consider it holy. My question is, have these people ever read the Bible, or do they pick out the sections they like and pretend the sections they don't like don't exist?

Christianity. The belief that a cosmic jewish zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your mater, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

Well, I've read the bible. And it is pretty disgusting. The amount of immoral things in there don't outway the few good messages. The christians seem to think though that because its God doing these things thats its not immoral, but it is.

Well, a good debate is always nice. I can't convince you I'm right but we can prove the bible is wrong.

liveson,

How could Adam and Eve be expected to comprehend the implications of their actions if, prior to their indescretion, they had no concept of wrong, evil, punishment, suffering, pain, and death?

...such as? Are you saying that every single one of those statements or examples he used were taken out of context and can be justified? I somehow doubt that. I'd love to hear how you would explain the context of each of those examples. I'd rep ya.

most of his examples were for the Jews not the Gentiles all this was before Jesus so they have no bearing now that that Gods anger towards sin is quenched by salvation ONLY

right it was perfect ...like heaven on Earth but with free will and God is a just God and dosnt like when he is rebeled against... he warned them and told them DONT DO IT...but Satan was on the earth and still is... and lied to them saying they would be like God and as powerful as him and ultimately persuaded them to Ruin it for all of us
