    Do they sell the Jefferson Bible? He was famous for ripping out pages of the bible he didn't like.

Lol! If they don't, they should do.

    Honestly I still think many of Jesus' teaches have not really been learned. Especially ironically by Christians. Like "love they neighbor as thy self." How can you think Gays or any other minority are second class citizens if you love them like you love yourself? or "turn the other cheek" or we need to ban Muslims from the country and bomb their countries because terrorists attacked us... not if we believed in turning the other cheek. If we did we would increase or aid to muslim countries every time they attacked us. "It is more difficult for a camel to travel through the head of a pin than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Capitalism is our real God. And the rich are our idols. Not Jesus.

It's important to remember that not all of what's attributed to Jesus in the gospels was actually what Jesus thought or said. Quite a bit of it was just what Christians wanted you to believe his teachings were. And quite a bit of what he thought was obscured by later Christian writing. Keep at the forefront of your mind that he was a first century Jewish apocalyptic preacher, and believed wholeheartedly in the entirety of the laws given purportedly by Moses.

So he believed in all the terrible stuff. That stoning people to death for adultery was the right thing to do. That slavery was okay. That you could murder your new wife if you found out she wasn't a virgin on your wedding night.

For every 'good' saying attributed to Jesus, there's a bad one.

Matthew 10:34 - 36

[34] Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
[35] For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
[36] And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Which is nothing more than a call to religious intolerance, hatred and violence.

Right before his arrest he tells his disciples to go out and buy swords (Luke 22:36). Why?

If you really want to know what Jesus' teachings were, all you have to do is read the first five books of the OT.
