SCRIPTURE: “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” –Psalms 37:4. [source]
SCRIPTURE: “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.” –Matthew 15:19. [source]
COMMENTARY: I don’t personally believe that religion is the root of all evil, but if we take the Bible at its word, then it’s clear that religious people are blessed by God to have their evil desires. And if you want to claim I’m reading the Bible wrong, then you’re admitting that the Bible can’t be taken at its word, and that we have to use morals outside of the Bible to determine the morals the Bible is teaching us. In my opinion, we should just cut out the middle man and use the morals we already have without trying to filter them through a book filled with God-sanctioned genocide, rape, slavery, and war. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
