Creepy Condescending Wonka Meme | ARE YOU A MORAL AUTHORITY ON WHAT CONSTITUTES AN ATROCITY? | image tagged in memes,creepy condescending wonka | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
How exactly do you judge what is or is not an "atrocity?"
Are you assuming that war is always wrong? If so why?
I agree that God often commands His people to go to war in the bible but it is always at direct revelation from Him. He puts in warning against false prophets who presume to speak in His name, and He gives standards to be able to recognize a false prophet and not be led astray. But all of that is in the Old Testament and doesn't even apply to Christians who follow Jesus. Christians are never commanded to do any type of evil in Jesus' name.

Black Girl Wat Meme | ANYONE WITH A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF THINKING SKILLS CAN RECOGNIZE THAT MANY THINGS IN THE BIBLE WOULD RIGHTLY BE CONSIDERED AN ATROCITY! THAT'S  | image tagged in memes,black girl wat | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
You can and obviously will find what you want to find in the Bible; however it's hard to see how you can avoid seeing that Matthew 10:34-7 isn't a divide and rule tactic telling followers who to love and who to fight. Other quotes tell menial laborers not to question authority and many other things if your open minded. This includes quotes saying that Jesus supports old testament teachings, assuming you want to find them.

Theology Nerd  | A text without context is a pretext for a proof-text. Without using proper hermeneutics (methodology of interpretation) and exegesis one may | image tagged in theology nerd | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I was once an anti-theist, not just an atheist. I had malice in my heart towards the idea of being accountable to someone or something outside of myself. I was not interested in actually presenting any part of the bible in its proper context. I have found very few atheists who are intellectually honest enough to argue against Scripture used in its proper context, rather they want to argue against its abuse and misuse.

Anyone can take a verse, passage, or story out of its immediate context or the context of the biblical narrative and twist it to mean something that it doesn't so that that person stands to gain. That is called a false teacher and is warned about numerous times in Scripture.

Matthew 10 is about discipleship. Jesus is giving his disciples their mission and tells them what he expects of them and if they are going to be true disciples the will suffer loss, nothing can be more important to them than Christ, even their own families, if they do follow Christ they will have enemies in their own families, and if they are not willing to suffer loss (take up their cross and follow after him: verse 38) they are not worthy of him.

Anyone who tries to twist that out of context for their own personal gain whether a cult leader who wants to divide people from family members who love them or an anti-theist/atheist trying to gain the upper hand in a debate, they will have to answer for twisting the Scriptures.

Picard Wtf Meme | ONE OF THE MOST COMMON DEBATE METHODS OF CONFUSING AN ISSUE IS TO TURN IT INTO SOMETHING COMPLICATED WHILE ACCUSING THE OTHER SIDE OF DOING  | image tagged in memes,picard wtf | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
None of this changes the fact that the Bible attempts to dictate a version of the truth that is full of contradictions and doesn't encourage people to develop critical thinking skills.

The warnings about a false teacher or prophet in the Bible don't tell people how to recognize him, except one that let's people know that if the prophecies don't come true it must have come from a false prophet, but the people don't figure this out until it's too late.

Proverbs like 23:13 "Withhold not correction from the child: for [if] thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die." teaches parents to discipline and educate children with violence before they develop critical thinking skills.

This is a method to indoctrinate children from an early age to blindly obey and believe what they're told without question!

It's a cult indoctrination tactic!

Theology Nerd  | THE ISSUE IS YOU'RE ASSERTING THAT 'ATROCITIES' AND 'CULT TACTICS' ARE FOUND IN THE BIBLE OF WHICH I CAN ANSWER EVERY INSTANCE YOU BRING UP  | image tagged in theology nerd | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
If you are an atheistic, naturalistic, secular humanist what does it even matter if I want to indoctrinate people into a cult and control their lives for my own personal gain?

What does it matter if I want to disregard the rest of the bible's teaching on child rearing and use that one verse out of context (just like you have done) and beat my child into submission so that they will never question my authori-tie (Cartman voice)?

If the aforementioned worldview is correct then we are nothing more than highly evolved animals at best and at worst we are just sacks of biological matter with chemical reactions going off inside and we don't have any inherent intrinsic value. If life is all about "survival of the fittest" and I am smart enough to take someone else's superstitions and manipulate them to do whatever I want for my survival and betterment, why shouldn't I do it?

The fact is that I can correct any objection that you bring up about any out of context and misused portion of Scripture, but I'm not going to.

I'm not going to play defense against someone who is misusing the bible but doesn't have a foundation upon which to stand (without borrowing from my worldview) in order to be angry at the misuse and abuse of the bible.

Are you using reverse psychology?

For someone that doubts if it matters you make long arguments; perhaps I'll get back to you later.
