Many religionists hold up or "thump" "The Bible (actually some version they consider the true one) as the basis of their faith driven lives.
Although I Am no Bible scholar I believe that two directives within it expose most of those claiming fealty to Biblical ethics as ignorant at best and perhaps hypocrites at worse.
The two directives I Am most concerned with is one which begins "Judge not" and the other that states in no uncertain terms that "Vengeance is Mine sayeth the Lord"
There are those who will parse and distort the meaning of these two issues to justify their less than perfect obedience to following God's directives, however these holier than thou types remain quite unconvincing to me and most others who have read both of these passages and relate them to our daily lives.
