There is not a single person here that is not a "cherry picker" from the bible ( if they are Christian anyways)

It's kind of annoying to see psycho Christians berate someone else who identifies as Christian because they are not following the same parts of the bible as them.


To everyone who sees this and assumes that is who Christians are... it's not.


That is how those people are.



And every single one of them is a hypocrite.

Some of Christians dont berate anyone from parts of the bible.So they are not cherry pickers.

I find it hilarious though when an atheist cherry picks from the bible to belittle a Christian, because the stupid atheist is then reading the bible, they dont believe in, Talk about being a hypocrite.lol




No, pretty much every one here is actually a cherry picker.


The bible can be a place of great knowledge and spiritual depth. But I bet none of them are going to kill their daughters if they find out she had sex before marriage.

I'm Christian and don't cherry pick from the Bible. I'm not Jewish and therefore not subject to Mosaic Law; rather as one of the redeemed I am subject to the greatest commandments (love God and love your neighbor). There are a few doctrines that define what Christianity is (specifically, faith in the redemptive sacrifice of Christ) and much of the rest is up for interpretation, though some interpretations are clearly unscriptural.

It's also used as a way to describe someone who believes in parts of the bible, but not others.

We believe that we have a living prophet to help us interpret God's word for us today. That makes everything so much easier!

I have had someone go on a rant over homosexuality whole tattooed and pierced and long haired. I'm sure that's a big no no in the bible but he must of skipped over those parts..

You're right...I don't know that there isn't someone out there following every single word as life law. But if there is...they might be headed for prison.

Life was much, much different when the bible was written, we just don't do things the same way anymore...at all. Stonings, slave ownership guidelines, clothing requirements, marriage age laws...things are very different and not accepted now.

great but that doesnt mean you can claim to know what all Christians do, you dont know all Christians.
