Love thy neighbor, may he who is without sin cast the first stone, do not judge lest ye be judged yourself - the Bible certainly has some great advice for Christians and anyone trying to be their best self. There are, however, some verses that make you say "whaaaa?" What are the most controversial and contentious verses in the Bible?

Without context, many Bible verses seem to condone awful practices. Rape? Slavery? Killing a woman for speaking out of turn? These horrific acts are allowed?

This list of startling and confusing Bible verses is meant to give guidance on what these controversial Bible passages mean and how they've been interpreted over the years. Also, like with anything, context is important, and this list includes historical context for what was going on at the time the Bible was written.

With that said, some of these passages are still pretty messed up. Vote up the Bible verses and quotes you think are the most controversial. Thank God not everything in life is meant to be taken literally. Then, thank God, literally, because if there's one thing the Bible is very clear about is that God deserves all the thanks in the world.
