7 Controversial Bible Verses That Should Deeply Concern Every Christian




The Bible says all Scripture is given by inspiration of God (2nd Tim 3:16-17). But the following verses of the Scripture should give Christians a cause for concern. Bible scholars should please come and explain what these verses seem to say.

2 Kings 2:23-24

“And [the prophet] went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, ‘Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.’ And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.”

Is the Bible saying God hates children that He sends bears to attack them?

2) 1 Samuel 15:3

“Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.”

Is the Bible promoting genocide?

3) Psalm 137:9

“Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.”

Is the Bible supporting killing children?

4) Deuteronomy 13:6-9

“If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, ‘Let us go and worship other gods’ (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people.”

Is the Bible saying we should be jihadists?

5) Leviticus 11:10

“And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you.”

Is the Bible saying eating shrimps, lobsters, or crayfish is sinful?

6) 1 Timothy 2:12

“But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

Is the Bible supporting gender inequality?

7) Matthew 19:24

“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”

Is the Bible saying as long as you are poor, you can enter heaven easily? Why are most pastors then preaching prosperity?
