If God is against Abortion, Pedophilia, Slavery, Racism etc why doesn’t he simply just say so?

Whilst doing my recent article on Adam and Eve, I came to the realisation, that the Christian Bible, turns a blind-eye to a whole range of what believers term sins, and what mainstream secular world often deems illegal practices.


Abortion (not illegal in most countries, but clearly a bone of contention)


Illegal Drug taking.

The list goes-on.

The Bible deafly is silent on a whole raft of sins – unlike its followers, who come up with all sorts of erroneous ‘join the dots’ links to scriptural passages, to try and justify their stand based on ‘Gods word’ - when in reality there are no specifics.

Cobbling passages together and placing them under another banner, doesn’t answer the crux of this dissertation:

Why didn’t God didn’t simply come-out and say “Child Sex is not permissible” etc and put it down in print for the benefit of mankind??

Why not include one line to say “terminating pregnancy is not on”?

Another line to indicate “One wife is ample”?

Remember this is the God fella here, not some mortal who forgot to look at his research notes.

Therefore we need to ask ourselves - who made polygamy, abortion, pedophilia and drug taking etc, sinful?

Clearly not, the God geezer from The Bible.

Nor evidently for that matter, does the God bloke give a rats-arse about similarly un-important subjects like, contraception, slavery, racism etc.

Glaringly Mr God didn’t say “boo” directly on any of these themes and Christian theologians over the centuries, have been left instead to interpret and cut & paste where necessary – all to justify their stands on a gambit of ‘sins’ which mainstream society recognises as crimes/injustices - but for which there is sadly not one iota of direct mention in their holy book.

Conversely the God bloke had time in his memoirs to include things that are of greater concern to him personally, and clearly more relevant to the day-to-day existence of his playthings.

So instead of telling us not to enslave another human, priority in his best-seller, is given to more important matters at hand, like:

“No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord” [Deuteronomy 23:1]

“Then said Abishai the son of Zeruiah unto the king, Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king? let me go over, I pray thee, and take off his head”.[ 2 Samuel 16 or something]

" not plant your field with two kinds of seed. Do not wear material woven of two kinds of material." (Leviticus 19:19)

“But all in the seas or in the rivers that do not have fins and scales, all that move in the water or any living thing which is in the water, they are an abomination." (Leviticus 11:10)

One can only conclude God chappy thinks it’s more important issuing sanctions on footwear and eating oysters, than child sex.
