Is wealth innately evil/sinful?

StephenGayBaptist
mightbenihilism

The accumulation of wealth is sinful in nature. It often makes people cruel, greedy, and detached from society. Jesus cast the money lenders out of the temple, and he many times spoke against wealth. Therefore, I believe that wealth in essence is evil. All people are worthy and deserving of love, and compassion. Although many of these wealthy people are cutthroat capitalists, and have no concern for the homeless, and downtrodden. I was wondering how others feel about this, whether you're religio...

The Bible is immoral

goldenface15
Mike_10-4

Not just the Bible, but the god depicted by the Bible. -God kills 70k people because David ordered a census (1 Chronicles 21) -God orders the destruction of 60 cities just so the Israelites can live there. Also, he orders the killing of all men, women, and children of each city. (Deuteronomy 1) -God orders the murder of all the people of the Jabesh-gilead, except for the virgin girls. God instructed the men to choose which virgin girl they liked, forcibly rape her, and make her his wife. (...

If God is not real, does human existence ultimately have any meaning?

One might argue that our lives do have meaning because we can influence others or affect the course of history. But this only shows a relative significance to our lives, not an ultimate significance. Our lives may be important relative to certain events, but what is the ulti...

If the Bible is entirely harmonious, is a place of eternal torment Biblical?

Bible2000
Jzyehoshua

1. If Pro does not give a single Bible verse that proves a place of eternal torment, the idea that the wicked are eternally punished in fire is not Biblical. 2. If Pro does not give a reasonable explanation that can be backed up with the Bible of the many verses that contradict a place of eternal torment, the idea that the wicked are eternally punished in fire is not Biblical. Pro may give his arguments that a place where the wicked are eternally tormented in fire is Biblical now, in round...
