6 Moral Behaviors You Thought Were Immoral
We all know that atheists can’t determine right from wrong because they lack any basis on which to make such judgments. We Bible believers, on the other hand, easily ascertain morality. How, you ask? It’s all clearly expounded in our book, which is the holy and inspired word of God and therefore cannot be erroneous.
You don’t believe me? Well, let’s check out the Bible and you will see how amazingly moral it is. Trust me though, you will be surprised by some of these!
- Is it moral to steal from others?
Exodus 3:22 But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of her who visits her house, jewels of silver, jewels of gold, and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons, and on your daughters. You shall despoil the Egyptians.
Answer: Yes, it is perfectly fine to steal from our neighbors.
- Is it moral to murder?
Exodus 32:27 He said to them, “Thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, ‘Every man put his sword on his thigh, and go back and forth from gate to gate throughout the camp, and every man kill his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.”
Deuteronomy 21:18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and, though they chasten him, will not listen to them; 19 then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out to the elders of his city, and to the gate of his place; 20 and they shall tell the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. 21 All the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones: so shall you put away the evil from the midst of you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
Psalm 137:9 (WEB) Happy shall he be, Who takes and dashes your little ones against the rock.
Answer: Yes, if our brother or sister, or anyone else, doesn’t worship our god, it is perfectly fine to murder him or her. Or, if our own sons and daughters won’t do what we say–or eat and drink too much–we should kill them. And what joy to murder little infants, secure in the knowledge that it is pleasing to the god of the Bible!
- Is it moral to lie?
2 Chronicles 18:21 He said, ‘I will go forth, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ He said, ‘You shall entice him, and shall prevail also: go forth, and do so.’ 22 Now therefore, behold, Yahweh has put a lying spirit in the mouth of these your prophets; and Yahweh has spoken evil concerning you.
Ezekiel 14:9 If the prophet be deceived and speak a word, I, Yahweh, have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand on him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
Answer: Yes, lying is godly.
- Is it moral to abandon our spouse and children?
Exodus 21:2 If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years and in the seventh he shall go out free without paying anything. 3 If he comes in by himself, he shall go out by himself. If he is married, then his wife shall go out with him. 4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he shall go out by himself. 5 But if the servant shall plainly say, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children. I will not go out free;’6 then his master shall bring him to God, and shall bring him to the door or to the door-post, and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl, and he shall serve him for ever.
Ezra 10:3 Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those who tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law.
Answer: Yes, abandoning a wife and children is acceptable if it means a man is thereby able to gain his freedom from slavery, and sometimes it is actually required if a man’s wife is foreign.
- Is it moral to buy and sell human beings?
Leviticus 25 (WEB) :44 As for your male and your female slaves, whom you may have; of the nations that are around you, from them you may buy male and female slaves. 45 Moreover of the children of the strangers who sojourn among you, of them you may buy, and of their families who are with you, which they have conceived in your land; and they will be your property. 46 You may make them an inheritance for your children after you, to hold for a possession; of them may you take your slaves forever: but over your brothers the children of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with harshness.
Answer: Yes, human trafficking is a wonderful way to become rich.
- Is it moral to punish an innocent person for crimes committed by the guilty?
1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
1 Peter 2:24 who his own self bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.
Matthew 23:35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah, whom you killed between the sanctuary and the altar. 36 Most assuredly I tell you, all these things will come upon this generation.
Answer: Yes, it’s actually good that innocents die for guilty people.
There we have it. According to the Bible, we may steal, murder, lie, abandon our families, buy and sell other humans, and rejoice that innocent people die for the crimes of the guilty. I’m glad we have a means to know the truth, as it is important to possess a good strong sense of morality. It’s too bad atheists have nothing to help them choose right from wrong.
