"And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life maimed or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire.
"And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire."
(Matt. 18:8-9, Mark 9:43-47)

Jesus is hardcore, not a hippie.

No idea why people treat jesus as a sweet all loving guy. The man is the craziest toughest sanabish that ever lived

So... living without ears, tongle, eyes, feet, ass, d*ck, hands and feet is better than burning in the ethernal flames... All right!

Pretty sure that was a metaphor.

You can't just say the parts that are bad are metaphors and the parts that are good are literal.

Either it's the irrefutable word of god or it isn't, there's no room for middle ground here.

are you really gonna be that guy? jesus talked in parables/metaphors all the time, it was pretty much the only way he taught people, he said things in a way where it had a deeper meaning than just the literal translation.

Ya I'm really gonna be that guy. He either ALWAYS spoke literally, or never did. Again, you can very well say he spoke in metaphors all the time, but if he did he did it for the good stuff too

Dude, I'm looking right at the passage. If someone other then a 2000 year old dead Prophet wrote that, I'd say it was a metaphor. And just a heads up, I'm...kinda caught between Buddhism and Atheism, so yeah.

Okay? I don't care about your religious beliefs, I'm just saying that it's either all accepted or none of it is

Jesus did NOT write the bible. People wrote it long after he died

I thought those verses where quotes taken from Jesus? I'm not exactly a bible scholar, mind.

You'd think.
The thing about the bible (and most other religious books that i've heard of) is that it's written very factual, when in fact it was produced by many different people.
The bible is a selection of many different scrolls/writings or whatever.
I believe i read something about dragons being excluded from the bible.
