25 Normal Things The Bible Forbids But We Still Do

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.

Eating bacon (or pork in general)


Leviticus 11:4 reads:

“Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.”

Translation: Just bacon? So we’re good if we stick to pork chops?


Tearing your clothes


Leviticus 10:6 reads:

“And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled.”

Translation: Billy Idol, Steven Tyler, Tommy Lee, Ozzy Osborne, Slash, and so many other rock stars (and their fans) shouldn’t worry about all the sex and drugs they’ve had and done because their jeans and horrible T-shirts have done enough damage already.


Eating “weird” little animals


Leviticus 11:28–29 reads:

“These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, and the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.”

Translation: I don’t know about you guys but I am part French. That means I’ve eaten enough snails to book a ticket straight to hell.


Getting tattooed


Leviticus 19:28 reads:

“Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.”

Translation: The little dolphin you tattooed on your butt cheek at age seventeen during spring break while you were drunk off your ass has ultimately condemned you eternally.


Getting remarried after getting divorced


Mark 10:11–12 reads:

“Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.”

Translation: I truly feel sorry for Elizabeth Taylor right now.
