List Rules Vote up your favorite things that the Bible explicitly forbids. And remember Luke 6:37, Matthew 7:1, and John 8:7.

The Bible is a popular book with a lot of words in it. Many of those words are about things good people are not supposed to do, eat, wear, say, etc., if they don't want to spend eternity in Hell. But let's be serious: A lot of the things the Bible forbids are some of the things we want to do the most. Maybe the writers knew that? And maybe that's exactly why they're in there? Like, they wanted to somehow deprive normal human people of basic pleasures as some sort of form of crowd control? Or something? I don't know; I wasn't there.

Vote up your favorite sins that are forbidden and prohibited by the Bible.
