10 Bible Verses Destroying The United States Of America

10 Bible Verses Destroying The United States Of America June 21, 2021

My question is What are the Bible verses destroying the secular state we find in the US Constitution? And what I mean by that what are the bits of the Good Book that undercut the separation of church and state, women’s rights, and true religious freedom? I asked that question to a few friends who are fighting the good fight against Christian nationalism (fascism?) and I posted the query on the Laughing in Disbelief Facebook page.
Here are 10 of their responses.

10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. 11 Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.

– Jason from the podcast/YouTube channel Dragons in Genesis

Jason commented on that verse, “It tells people to reject anyone who isn’t a believer in their religion. Cast them out for they are wicked. I’ve seen this one used to reject gays, Muslims, atheists, Indians, Jews, etc.”

Leviticus 24: 19-21

19 Anyone who injures their neighbor is to be injured in the same manner:20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. The one who has inflicted the injury must suffer the same injury. 21 Whoever kills an animal must make restitution, but whoever kills a human being is to be put to death.27 

1 Republican 1:1 

Thou shall not vote.

– Actor Tori Clay  (OK, it’s not a real quote, but considering how the GOP is working to prevent many citizens from voting I felt it had to be mentioned.)

1 Samuel 18:27

Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king’s son in law. And Saul gave him Michal his daughter to wife.

Whenever you think about how weird QAnon conspiracies are, remember that they have nothing on the Bible.

Romans 13:1

“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities; for there is no authority except from God, and those authorities that exist have been instituted by God.”

– author and photographer Pat Green

Leviticus 20:23

And you shall not walk in the customs of the nation that I am driving out before you, for they did all these things, and therefore I detested them.

The Raging Atheist 

The next time you wonder “Why are evangelicals so xenophobic?” think of this verse.

Mathew 10:37

37 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

– Robert Stanley host of the show The Right to Reason

 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
– Andrew Hall (I felt I had to contribute this anti-LGBTQ verse)

 

Writer Barry Purcell reflected there’s also a problem with evangelicals ignore. They don’t seem to like the many times where Jesus preaches against wealth.  For example, Mathew 19:21  Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”  If more evangelicals took that seriously, then we would all be better off.

What biblical verses would you say are destroying the United States of America?
