25 Normal Things The Bible Forbids But We Still Do

Posted by , Updated on January 7, 2015

The Bible is considered one of the most widely read books in the world and for many Jews and Christians is considered an absolute authority in guiding their morality and beliefs. However, many Christians nowadays commit sin after sin on a daily basis without even realizing it. See, the Bible forbids many of the things people love to do and in all honesty there’s nothing wrong with most of these things, at least by modern standards and the current status quo.

Since this topic is a little too sensitive though, we won’t say much more but will instead list chapters and lines from the books of the Bible that forbid some of the most normal and awesome things one could ever imagine, but nevertheless, you be the judge.

Premarital sex


There’s no point in listing one of the countless chapters and verses in the Bible that states premarital sex is a sin. That’s a fundamental Christian belief so there you go.


Wearing polyester, or any other fabric blends


Leviticus 19:19 reads:

“You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together.”

Translation: Cristiano Ronaldo is right when he demands his football jerseys be 100 percent cotton. Maybe he knows something we don’t? One way or another, millions of soccer players around the world are in serious trouble.


Hmmm, pulling out


Genesis 38:9 reads:

“And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.”

Translation: I don’t know how to explain this exactly . . . Just use a condom!


Eating assorted seafood


Leviticus 10–11 reads:

“And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcasses in abomination.”

Translation: The absolute revenge of the red lobster.


Working on Saturday


Exodus 31:14–15 reads:

“Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.”

Translation: Let’s just count and see if there’s a single human being on earth who won’t go to hell over this. You lucky lazy bastards. You never worked any day of the week anyway.
