Should all the versus that promote hate be removed from the Bible, Koran etc?

Just wondered if this was to be done, it would be much harder for people to be sh!ity with each other.

    There are no verses in The Holy Bible that promote hate, it's the exact opposite actually.

    Perhaps try reading a few verses like: John 15:25, Matthew 5:43-44, Galatians 5:19-26. Peace!

    attempt to stumble on a contradiction.. ISLAM CONDEMS..the folk EVEN TO CURSE the different GODS..ITS an outstanding SIN IN ISLAM..to assert undesirable about different GODS.. IN QURAN attempt to stumble on.. A CONTRADICTION..sick leave ISLAM..AND BE AN ATHIEST.. please.. An-Nisa [4:80 2] Do they no longer then evaluate the Qur'ân heavily? Had it been from except Allâh, they'd certainly have got here across therein MANY CONTRADICTIONS... THERE ARE NONE.. Yunus [10:37] THIS Qur'an isn't which includes would properly be PRODUCED by using except ALLAH; in reality it truly is a confirmation of (revelations) that went before it, and a fuller rationalization of the e book? in which there is little question from the Lord of the Worlds. Yunus [10:38] Or do they say: "He (Muhammad noted) has forged it?" Say: "convey then a Sûrah (financial disaster) like unto it, and contact upon whomsoever you could, to boot Allâh, if you're straightforward!" it truly is a undertaking when you consider that 1400 YRS in the past..AND continues to be OPEN in case you want attempt arising a clean QURAN..it isn't attainable.. PEACE.. As-Saff [sixty one:8] They intend to positioned out the mild of Allâh (i.e. the religion of Islâm, this Qur'ân, and the Prophet Muhammad noted) with their mouths. yet Allâh will convey His mild to perfection even inspite of the reality that the disbelievers hate (it). Ar-Room [30:fifty 8] And certainly we've set forth for mankind, in this Qur'ân all kinds of parable. yet in case you (O Muhammad noted) convey to them any signal or information, (as an information for the reality of your Prophethood), the disbelievers are sensible to assert (to the believers): "You persist with no longer something yet FALSEHOOD, and magic."

    If only it were possible!

    OK, it is possible to take out anything from any text you think promotes hate and produce a workable document. In fact the Christian Bible wouldn't be that much different if at all as the majority of texts people assume promote hate are very specific in their context and usually misread.

    Now would you be referring to hate in general or very specific instances?

    For example hating sin is actually a command to love.

    Would you also remove the story of the crucifixion on the grounds that many people have misguidedly abused that as a pretext for antisemitism?

    As things stand, promoting hate on religious grounds is a crime. If that were to be applied to religious writings it would actually outlaw the entire Qu'ran as Sharia law forbids interference with it in any way. Somehow I think that many moderate Muslims would regard that as a crime of hate against them.

    But given the opportunity, I'd love to see a version of all religious text edited as you propose. Of course if we were to work together on the edit, you & I might disagree. In fact I'd guess that finding a hate free version of them all would need about as many goes as it would take monkeys on a word processor to write the entire text of Hamlet.

    Nice thought though.

    No, because it sets people straight. See God's hate for people:

    The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You HATE all workers of iniquity - Psalm 5:5. ~ Note: Workers are people. So God does not love everybody. Also take a look at 11:5...

    The Lord tests (examines) the righteous, but the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul HATES - Psalm 11:5. ~ Note: This also proves that God does not love everybody in their sinning state of being. People who say "God hates the sin but loves the sinner" are not telling the truth. They should read the Bible more if they want to talk about God.

    Revelations: "if anyone takes anything away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God will take his portion away from the trees of life"

    You may reject God and his message but don't impose your beliefs on us. The Bible is not just a collection of books but is inspired by God - he has the right to tell us how to live our lives regardless of the social norms of any particular society. Societies norms changes but God never does ...we should derive some Comfort from that fact

  • Stand by for the Christians to insist that the Bible doesn't contain verses promoting hatred.

    Anyone who does, like Thomas H above) should review the Old Testament.

    You look for hate, you find it.

    I don't find the holy books to promote hate. I find you promoting it though.

    Some people are just naturally "sh!ity" !!!

    I wouldn't matter what was taken out, they would still be used as a basis for superstitious mumbo-jumbo and for interpretations that make fuel for political movements not spiritual ones.

    By whom, Swamp Donkey? Who do you think should have this kind of power over our individual rights? The government? Move to NKorea, you'll fit in beautifully.

    Do you people get that "hate" is not something which must be promoted? Hatred is one of the negative traits of human nature that God wants us to deal with appropriately, as in, God said to love others as ourselves. *Some* of you think that means we have to put up with you corrupting our children.
