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.

Wives helping out their husbands in a fight


Deuteronomy 25:11–12 reads:

“When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets.”

Translation: Just sit back and enjoy. If your man wins, then more power to you for marrying Chuck Norris. If he loses, just deal with the fact that you married a wimp.


Round haircuts


Leviticus 19:27 reads:

“You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads . . .”

Translation: The Beatles and Lloyd Christmas from Dumb and Dumber are already burning in hell.


Or trimming your beard


Leviticus 19:27 reads:

“neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.”

Translation: Just make sure you keep a clean-cut style. No goatee, beards, or mustaches allowed . . . ever.


Divorcing with your lying, cheating partner


1 Corinthians 7:10–11 reads:

“To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife.”

Translation: Don’t pay attention to your spouse if he’s cheating on you, beats the crap out of you, doesn’t work, makes you feel less like a human, and so on; especially if you’re a woman. Just suck it up and honor your marriage. Ahhh! Sometimes I can truly understand how feminists got so mad at men and society.


Eating cheeseburgers


Leviticus 3:17 reads:

“It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.”

Translation: The day I learned this I decided I wanted to be a Buddhist. I mean cheeseburgers are full of fat, right?
