if Christians...
If Christians actually read the bible they'd be atheists. Do you agree with this statement? Thoughts?

REASON! Exclamation

Sadly not true - I've got a friend whom I've been torturing with a steady stream of awkward bible verses for years and he's never shown any sign of atheism Tongue

Just look at KC, he knows the bible very good, and is not an atheist.

RE: if Christians...
I have to disagree with the opening statement. The millions of people who follow it suggest otherwise.

Well I mean the hole thing in depth. Most Christians I know haven't.

I know several who have who are preachers, and they're still preachers.

Although I understand the point. That suggested if people actually read it and questioned it with an open mind, that they would no longer believe it because they'd see the contradictions and insanity of it all.

If the bible is read in full, and taken on face value, i.e. not "interpreted," it is one of the most thoroughly immoral, inconsistent and poorly written documents that has ever poisoned mankind's perception of the world.

Christians who bother to read it reinterpret and make excuses for it. They revere it inappropriately for all sorts of reasons, so fail to appreciate what a fucked up piece of garbage it is.

Your premise is perfectly accurate.

No,because they can still devote their life to believing in a genocidal egoistic oppressive dictator.

RE: if Christians...
To play the devil's advocate:

The westboro baptist church has said in interviews that they believe every bit of it and don't interpret it incorrectly and claim that most christians do ignore it and are afraid to live by it's "true meaning" and that is hence why they think most christians don't like them.

Who is to say that if someone doesn't read it through and through and doesn't interpret it how they want it, but take it literally and wish to live by it's exact meaning won't still think it's true?

(mostly I'm just having fun)
