Injustice in Hebrews

  1. Every skeptic and nonbeliever has "an evil heart of unbelief." 3:12

  2. It is impossible for fallen-away Christians to be saved. (Didn't the author know about confession or the finality of being saved?) 6:4-6

  3. "That which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned."
    Apostates will burn in hell with the other non-believers. 6:8

  4. "Melchisedec ... to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all." Abraham gave Melchisedec one-tenth of all of the booty from "the slaughter of the kings," setting a fine example for religious hucksters everywhere. 7:1-2

  5. God will not forgive anyone unless something is killed for him in a bloody manner. 9:13-22

  6. "A certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries."
    God will soon destroy non-believers in a fiery hell. 10:27

  7. Those who disobeyed the Old Testament law were killed without mercy. It will be much worse for those who displease Jesus. 10:28-29

  8. "Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord." 10:30

  9. "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." 10:31

  10. If you're not a Christian, it's impossible to please God. 11:6

  11. "By faith Noah ... condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith." 11:7

  12. "Abraham ... offered up Isaac ... his only begotten son." (And this was a good thing? How fucked up is that?) 11:17

  13. The Israelites kept the passover and sprinkled blood on doorposts so that God wouldn't kill their firstborn children (like he did the Egyptians in Exodus 12:29). 11:28

  14. God saved Rahab because she believed. (He killed all the non-believers in Jericho.) 11:31

  15. "Time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthah; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets."
    The heroes of faith: Gideon, Samson, Jephthah, David, and Samuel. It would be hard to find a more monstrous group than these guys. 11:32

  16. God ordered animals to be "stoned, or thrust through with a dart" if they "so much as ... touch the mountain." 12:20
