Nicole Kidman just revealed how Christians are treated in Hollywood and it’s worse than you think

77

Hollywood has made it clear they are outright hostile toward Christianity.

But it may be worse than you think.

Nicole Kidman just revealed how fellow celebrities treat her for being a Christian and it’s not good.

Celebrities actively slander and make fun of Christians in movies, TV shows, and on late night comedy shows.

There are very few Christians in Hollywood who are open about their faith for fear of it damaging their careers.

But Nicole Kidman broke the silence on how Christians are treated by their fellow celebrities.

Kidman told Vanity Fair that she and her children are ridiculed for attending church.

Breitbart reports:

Actress Nicole Kidman said she is often teased by friends for her Christian faith and for going to church with her family, in a new cover story with Vanity Fair.

“A lot of my friends tease me,” said Kidman, who came back to her Catholic faith prior to marrying country singer Keith Urban in 2006. The couple settled in Nashville, Tennessee, where they have lived ever since.

Kidman said that regular Mass attendance is an important part of their family life.

“That’s how we are raising our children. Keith has his own beliefs but he comes, too,” the Big Little Lies star said. “I had a very Catholic grandmother, and I was raised praying, so that had massive impact.”

“I wouldn’t say it’s absolutism, there’s constant questioning — I’m a willful, feisty girl. For me it’s very important that I don’t have judgment. My dad would always say, ‘Tolerance is the most important thing,’” Kidman said.

Kidman also stated there was “constant questioning” from her colleagues.

It’s no surprise that radical leftists are trying to steer Kidman and her family away from the church.

Hollywood celebrities always preach tolerance and open mindedness for other’s beliefs.

But declaring you are a Christian or even worse, a conservative, is forbidden.

Nicole Kidman should be applauded for standing up for her beliefs.

  2. Good for Nicole. Jesus said this would happen. satan is gaining ever more ground. libs/dems/atheists will all lose. They can deny God but they will all stand before Him to be judged. They will join satan whom they serve

  3. Nicole, you are doing the right thing for your family. Religion is very important and is a learning tool in life that your children will need. One of the problems of this world is that they have taken religion, God, and some of our holidays out of school and are warping the minds of our children. I can’t believe what has happened in our country and I know that I can’t change it. BJ was right with her comment that SATAN is gaining ever more ground, but that doesn’t make it right or you have to abide by it either.

  4. A verse I noted back when I was a child, that remains with me:
    Matthew 10:33
    “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”

    Silence is denying your faith.
    Thank you, Nicole, for speaking up!

  5. The Hollywood sickos’ time will come. They think it will be rainbows and unicorns foerever, but as a good buddy of mine once said, “There are no atheists in a foxhole”.

  6. If they ridicule you and your family for being Christians then they really aren’t you friends.God will not be mocked just wait and see ! Good for you for standing up for your faith .

  7. Thank you Nicole for speaking up. We need more of the Christians in the entertainment industry to stand up for their beliefs in God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit. We will all be judged one day. Our job here on earth is not to judge but to pray for those who don’t know HIM and let the Holy Spirit draw them to Jesus. And do the same thing as Conservatives –

  8. Someone once said “Love, friendship, respect will never unite a people as much as a common hatred for something”. The cultural secular left have denied and abandoned God. Those of us, like Nicole Kidman, who believe, according to surveys, lead happier and more fruitful lives. Let the non-believers wallow in there common hatred, and in misery. They are nothing more than vexations of the spirit.

  9. I applaud you for taking a stand for Chritianity and especially so in your work environment. Maybe some of the your other fellow elitists will brave the negativity from their colleagues and make a stand for Christianity.

  10. People who don’t believe in God and serve Him aren’t going to live forever and are in for a real shock when they die and find their self-serving way comes to a screeching halt and they go South to join Satan!

  11. I am so very glad to hear Nicole standing up for her faith and bringing up her children in God’s Word

  12. Nicole is not only beautiful onside but her standing up for her faith and bringing up her children in God’s word makes her more beautiful inside. The Bible said there will be a great falling away before His Coming Back.
    We are living in these days But read the last page WE WIN.

  13. In God we trust, Hollywood is going the wrong way. Their God is the devil. You can see it in just the way the women expose themselves, what does that serve. the devil. what is the purpose, evil. Save yourselves, Hollywood. Good girl Nicole.

  14. thanks for standing up for Jesus. eternity is too long and this life is too short. we all need to be ready!

  15. God Bless you Nicole! God will judge all of these “Hollywood Elites” and it will not be a pretty sight. You are to be commended in bringing up your children in church.

  16. Kidman is obviously a strong minded women that knows who she is ,she didn’t give in to Tom Curze and his Santist Church ,she will stay strong in her Faith ,,I think Fakewood will figure this out very soon ,some people like Kidman are not Brainwashable ,they will not Fall for their Fakewood CULT, She had a praying grandmother who prayers didn’t go in-vain!!!

  17. Nicole,
    Thank you for standing tall about your Christian faith. We need more people like you in Hollywood, politics and newsrooms. Keep your faith coming – shout it from the rooftops. There are many that will love you EVEN MORE for declaring you are Christian. God bless you!

  18. Too many people are simply lemmings following what they think is success: image, behaviors, attitudes and trends. They have neither the courage of convictions, nor the strength to have beliefs that endure. “If you deny me before the world, I will deny you to the Father” was Jesus’ simple edict for our faith and the courage to be steadfast in it. Bravo to those in that delusional place called Hollywood, that are real, strong and courageous.

  19. Yes.. The Bible says “Dont be surprised if the world hates you; remember they persecuted tje prophets before you.”

  20. Yes, The day will come when they will regret they ever cut a Christian down with their stupid remarks. I am 87 years old and I have believed in God all my life. I know I could not have survived without God. He has always been with me and protected me.

  21. Hollywood people picking on children because of their faith. Truly disgusting subhuman stains on America. Too bad Nicole didn’t give out names . Hollywood is not Hollywood anymore.

  22. I believe in god and Jesus 100% and i have the proof in my life FOR ALL OF THOSE THAT DO NOT believe ; I hope that some day or in some hour you open your heart and eyes and discover the proof before it is TOO LATE

  23. There is something about having a Christian faith that surpasses every attempt to ridicule that faith. Kidman found it and has held on to it. Nothing her so called friends (who by the way, might be envious of her faith and the joy it brings to her and her family) do, will take that away from her. I hope she remembers them in prayers when she attends her regular Mass services.

  24. Belonging to and attending a Church of Rome (so called Catholic) does not mean a person is a Christian. Some of the Church of Rome members are born again having accepted Jesus as the one who paid, with His blood and life, the penalty for their sin(s)!

    Others accept the Church of Rome’s stance that membership in the Church is the only way to enter Heaven.

    We are not allowed to judge others! Jesus will judge who have accepted Him and the Holy Spirit will be the Advocate representing each born again person. I hope that Ms. Kidman, her husband, and her children have chosen Jesus, not the Church of Rome, for their salvation.

    Her comments about HollyWeird are meaningful!

  25. But, but, BUT, the leftist libTURD democRAT COMMIES are so tolerant and inclusive!!!!!!!!!!

    R-I-G-H-T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Harvey: Before Protestantism came to be, Catholic Christianity existed, maybe about a millenium and a half. It was this Church that had the New Testament composed to give witness to Jesus way back then.. I am what you call a “so called Catholic”. Since ALL Christians are living in a constantly more hostile world, now is hardly the time for interdenominational squabbling.

  27. Another reason I like Nicole. I just laugh at the whiny children from the left and their childish hate knowing that what you send around always comes back around. Karma will bite them one day in ways they never expect. It ALWAYS does.

  28. He didn’t say there weren’t Christians still in the church as I know there are but with all the upheaval in today’s version with the current pope there are questions……and God WILL judge.

  29. The Catholic Church teaches that the Bible is the inspired Word of God which is the basis for my belief in the Bible.

  30. It’s great to hear from an accomplished and beautiful person about her belief and faith in God.I admire her for standing up to those losers .. thank you may you always be guided.

  31. Bless Nicole for her courageous willingness to stand up and speak out about her faith. Strong lady with strong character in a time when speaking out could greatly impede her ability to work. KUDOS to Nicole.

  32. Thank you and Bless you Nicole and your family. “In God We Trust” is meaning more to me every day. Thanks for your stand against evil Satanwood. I went there years ago and returned home in utter disgust at the real Deep State that had engulfed the one time entertainment that all Americans enjoyed. Not anymore.
    Satan is running rampant in Hollywood and does so without a whimper from the sinful constitutes that man the dirt. The Golden Calf that Moses struck down is alive & well in America due to Satanistic rituals in every movie produced to entrap our loving kids and make them the new generation of perverts. America & World must stand for God and the 10 Commandments. GOD BLESS AMERICANS & AMERICA AMEN

  33. See Luke 16:23-25 Man died & wanted someone to go back & tell
    his brothers about heaven. Abraham said won’t believe the prophets
    they won’t believe me.

  34. Jo, the way to Hell is not SOUTH; it is DOWN! A lot of us in the South are believing Christians. My maternal Grandfather was a Baptist preacher. He taught me all the good things I know, but wisely left the decision to me. He died when I was nine, but I was saved and accepted the Jewish Carpenter as my Savior when I was twelve. For many years I have said if I am accused of being a Christian I hope there is enough evidence to convict me. I am eighty one now, and still going. Ms. Kidman, keep living your faith; Jesus will be your strength. May the Lord bless and keep you. Fair winds and following seas. The old Navy Chief

  35. Prayers for Ms. Kidman And God Bless Her for standing up for Her Lord !! I will keep You in My Prayers Daily God Bless You !!!

  36. THANK YOU FOR STANDING UP TO BEING CATHOLIC. I ADMIRE YOU FOR IT. I HAVE BEEN CATHOLIC FOR 82 YEARS AND I DON’T REGRET IT FOR ONE SECOND. MY FAITH HAS SEEN ME THRU A LOT OF THINGS. I HAVE HAD SIX CHILDREN AND I RAISED THEM CATHOLIC, WHEN PEOPLE FIND OUT I HAVE SIX CHILDREN, THE FIRST WORDS OUT OF THEIR MOUTH, OH YOU MUST BE CATHOLIC. I WOULD HAVE HAD EIGHT CHILDREN, BUT LOST TWO THRU MISCARRIAGES, BUT I WOULD HAVE LOVE TO HAVE HAD THEM. SO NOW WHEN THEY SAY YOU MUST BE CATHOLIC, I SAY NO I’M A PASSIONATE METHODIST, BUT THEN I SAY I’M JUST KIDDING.

  37. Conservative Christian commentator Brent Bozell said years ago that Hollywood considers anyone practicing sexual abstinence to be a freak (implying Christians all practice sexual abstinence).

    Is Hollywood “holier than thou” as Donald Trump Jr. claims, or are conservative Christians holier than thou? Christians lack credibility if they aren’t even following the very Scriptures they publicly profess to believe in.

    Paul quotes Jesus as having said to him three times, “my grace is sufficient for thee.” (II Corinthians 12:8-9) Christians sometimes misinterpret this verse to mean they’re free to do as they please — conveniently ignoring the rest of the New Testament, and (especially) Jesus’ and Paul’s other teachings.

    Paul wrote in I Corinthians Chapter 7:

    “It is good for a man not to touch a woman, but because of prevailing immoralities, let every man have his own wife and let every woman have her own husband.

    “The husband must render to his wife the obligations that are due her, and similarly the wife to her husband…

    “Do not deprive each other, except by mutual agreement for a time to devote yourselves unhindered by prayer; and come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you on account of your lack of self-control.”

    (The apostle Paul’s words here about self-control and not being tempted by Satan clearly indicate regulated or restricted sexual activity, even within marriage! Augustine and Aquinas took the position that even sex within marriage is intended solely for procreation. A hundred years ago, all Christian churches opposed birth control.)

    “I say this by way of concession, not as a regulation. I wish all were as I am (celibate), but each person has his own gift from God, the one in this direction, the other in that.

    “To the single and the widows, I say that it is good for them to remain as I am (celibate); but if they cannot restrain their passions, let them marry, for it is better to marry than to burn (with desire).

    “To the married couples I command — not really I but the Lord — that the wife must not leave her husband; and in case she does separate, she must either stay single or make up with her husband. And the husband must not divorce his wife.

    “…if the unbeliever wants to separate, let there be separation…”

    Jesus forbade divorce, except in the case of unfaithfulness. And here we see Paul forbidding divorce, except in the case of an unbeliever demanding separation! This is one of the two points on which Jesus and Paul actually agree. Like Jesus in Luke 21:36, Paul instructed his followers to ALWAYS pray constantly. (I Thessalonians 5:17)

    “Regarding the unmarried I have no divine injunction, but as one who has received mercy from the Lord to be trustworthy, I give my opinion… it is good for a person to remain in his present situation.

    “Are you united to a wife? do not seek release. Are you unattached to a woman? Do not seek a wife. But in case you marry, you do not sin; nor does the unmarried woman sin if she marries…

    “The single person is concerned with the Lord’s affairs, how to please the Lord, but the married person is concerned with things of the world, how to please his wife; he has divided interests.

    “The unmarried woman or the virgin is interested in the Lord’s affairs, that she may be dedicated to Him in body and spirit; but the married woman is concerned with things of the world, how she may please her husband.”

    “I mention this for your own good, not to throw a rope around you but to promote proper behavior and undisturbed devotion to the Lord.”

    Vegetarianism was an issue in the early church (Romans 14), but Paul doesn’t say anything about abortion. Frances Arnetta says, “Paul was always careful not to put conditions on those coming into the faith, since God’s Grace (forgiveness and salvation) is a free gift for the asking, not to be earned by good works.” But Paul’s words here clearly indicate that he does put conditions upon those coming into the faith: coming to Christ doesn’t mean being circumcised, but it does means giving up fornication, idolatry, adultery, homosexuality, etc.

    Conservative Christians are wary of anyone preaching what they think is a “false gospel.” Otherwise, why aren’t they still following Jim and Tammy Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart, Ted Haggard, etc.? If Ted Haggard were to try and rationalize his homosexual affairs with “three times…” would conservative Christians take it seriously?

  38. I’m a Christian and I will turn the other cheek but only ONE, then I will kick your BUTT up between your shoulders. Two more things I’m also a conservative and I want too help make America great again.

  39. If a woman thinks she has the right to kill her baby because she doesn’t want it or it’s her body and she can do whatever she wants with it then I say if a man gets tired of a woman he should be able to kill her at least she has a chance to run the baby doesn’t have any defense.

  40. Conservatives demonize Islam as cruel and barbaric, forgetting Christianity’s own record of barbarism, whereas liberals merely see Islam as six hundred years behind the secular West. Think back to what Christianity was like six hundred years ago: the Crusades, the Inquisition, burning witches at the stake, etc. If Christians today are tolerant and civilized, it’s due to the past five hundred years of SECULAR social progress nearly all of which were resisted by previous generations of Christians:

    …democracy and representative government in place of monarchy and belief in the divine right of kings; the separation of church and state; the abolition of human slavery; the emancipation of women; birth control; the sexual revolution; LGBT rights…

    A hundred years ago, for example, ALL Christian churches opposed birth control. Sexual morality for Christians is detailed in I Corinthians 7. If Christians actually followed the biblical commands against fornication and sexual immorality in general (Romans 1:24-27; I Corinthians 5:1,9-12, 6:9-10,15,18; I Thessalonians 4:3-5; ); as well as the commands that women cover their heads while worshiping (I Corinthians 11:5-14); Christian women are to dress modestly and prudently, and are not to be adorned with braided hair, gold or pearls or expensive clothes (I Timothy 2:9); Christian women are to keep silent in the churches and Christian women are not allowed to teach nor hold authority over men (I Corinthians 14:34-35; I Timothy 2:11-15)… Christianity would resemble Islam!

    Genesis 38:24. Tamar’s pregnancy was discovered three months after conception. This was proof that she was sexually active. Because she was a widow, without a husband, she was assumed to be a prostitute. Her father-in-law, Judah, ordered that she be burned alive for her crime. The “Sharia,” or Islamic Law has been condemned in the West as cruel and barbaric. The penalty for habitual thievery may be loss of a hand. The penalty for premarital sex may be a hundred lashes in public. The Islamic codes of justice, however, are similar to the civil and criminal laws found in Exodus 21-23.

    The Puritans of Massachusetts enacted America’s first law against gambling in 1638. In 1682, the Quakers in Pennsylvania passed their own law against gambling and “such like enticing, vain, and evil sports and games.” During the period from 1830 to 1860, lotteries were banned across America. By 1908, nearly every state in the nation had banned horse racing. Muslims were a virtually nonexistent minority in Protestant-dominated America when these laws when into effect. Nor did the Muslims coin the term “sin city” to refer to Las Vegas. The Muslims didn’t coin the term “demon rum” to refer to alcohol, nor were the Muslims responsible for the Prohibition of alcohol in the United States. Conservative Christians also take a dim view of alcohol.

    The early American feminist and vegetarian Elizabeth Cady Stanton similarly observed that “the Bible… does not exalt and dignify women.” Husbands are to rule over wives (Genesis 3:16), young girls are to be stoned (and not with marijuana, either!) for losing their virginity (Deuteronomy 22:20-21), women are subordinate to men (Ephesians 5:22-24), women must remain silent in the churches (I Corinthians 14:34-35), women are not allowed to teach or hold authority over men (I Timothy 2:11-14).

    St. Augustine said, “Any woman who acts in such a way that she cannot give birth to as many children as she is capable of, makes herself guilty of that many murders.” Martin Luther wrote: “God created Adam lord of all living creatures, but Eve spoiled it all. Women should remain at home, sit still, keep house and bear children. And if a woman grows weary and, at last, dies from childbearing, it matters not. Let her die from bearing; she is there to do it.”

    Even Pope John Paul II instructed women to go back to their traditional roles as “obedient and serving companions to their husbands,” and refused to have an audience with anyone advocating the ordination of women in the Catholic Church. The Catholic Encyclopedia still declares that women are inferior to the male sex, “both as regards body and soul.”

    Before casting the first stone at Islam, Christians would be wise to take a closer look at their own tradition. Many Muslims, too, are alarmed at the resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism sweeping the Middle East. In an interview before his assassination, Anwar Sadat, President of Egypt, pointed out that the brutality of the Khomeini regime in Iran could not be called true “Islam” any more than the Crusades or the Inquisition could be called genuine “Christianity.” The taking of hostages—especially diplomatic ones—is clearly forbidden in Islamic tradition. “I do not break treaties, nor do I make prisoners of envoys,” Mohammed insisted. Many Muslims saw the taking of American hostages by Iran in 1979 as an embarrassment to Islam.

  41. It’s good that she’s defending the Christian faith. Not to much of it in
    holly wood. Always been a big fan
    of Nicole Kidman.

    BOYCOTT THE dEMOCRATIC pARTY
    MAGA

  42. It’s not enough to believe in the Bible. America is a Christian country with Christian values. If we cease to be be a Christian country based on Christian values, we will be like the Muslims or the Nazis or the Commies. We need to put it in our Constitution that Judeo Christianity is the religion of America. Our beliefs must be learned, respected, obeyed–not laughed at and sneered at. And Hollywood must help not attack our Christian values. Otherwise, who needs Hollywood?

  43. Bravo Nicole! Sorry you and your family are going through this. We’re in end times and Satan has captured far too many souls who run his errands. This too will pass. Read the Book of Revelations!

  44. You blame all Christians for the wrongs done by the few. Nothing on earth is perfect, including you.
    Islam is not a religion, it’s a political ideology couched within a religion. Wake up!

  45. Just wondering if she was, or Tom Cruise is now, criticised for adherence to scientology. No, didn’t think so. Only Christianity. Ask why.

  46. Thank you Nicole for standing up to those faithless people. If the shoes were on the other foot they would be yelling that you are a racist and discriminating against them. God is watching out for his people and I’m sure he has your back. Thank you for being a Christian and teaching your children Christian ways and values. Gob Bless You

  47. A non-believer asked me once “Why do you believe in God, and what if your wrong?” My answer was, I believe in God because I have faith. If I’m wrong (which I know I’m not) I have lost nothing. If I’m right, I have gained eternity in Heaven. And you, not believing in God, what have you gained if you are right? Nothing. What have you lost if you are wrong? Everything.

  48. There are those Christians who still follow the Old Testament. There are more who follow the New Testament.

    John 13:34,
    A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

    No one is perfect, but there is only one belief that has it written into their holy scripture that they are to give non-believers a chance to repent, and if they refuse to repent and become Muslim it is permitted to kill them, enslave them and kill or rape the women and children, without being judged.

    You cannot justify or rationalize the horrors of Islam by referring to outdated Christian laws and some misguided and/or sinful people who profess to be Christians. The Inquisition was certainly wrong and is today condemned by the church that allowed it. The Crusades (all 15 of them) were a justified response to Muslim aggression.

  49. Barack Obama said as a Christian at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2015:

    “And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

    My friend Chris similarly asked, “Which was worse: Hitler’s genocide of the Jews or our genocide of the Native Americans?”

    No one would mistake Chris’ words for “pro-Nazi” sentiments. Why then do you presume anyone giving the benefit of the doubt to Islam must be Muslim or a Muslim sympathizer?!

    I merely said, before casting the first stone at Islam, Christians would be wise to take a closer look at their own tradition. And many Muslims, too, are alarmed at the resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism sweeping the Middle East.

  50. “She has a strong belief in God and isn’t afraid to say it out loud. “A lot of my friends tease me.” The Kidman-Urban’s go to church as a family. “That’s how we are raising our children. Keith has his own beliefs but he comes, too. ”

    This is what Nicole Kidman stated in Vanity fair. That her FRIENDS tease her. Nothing about Hollywood or being treated badly. Friends tease each other, that is life. Stop making a mountain out of a molehill. Stop trying to make something out of nothing.

  51. Sorry I don’t believe America is a nation lead by Christian values anymore. We have taken prayer out of our schools and at one time public meetings were started with prayer, but that doesn’t happen now. There are many other examples I could give but I don’t want to incite a range war. Even our U.S. Constitution, which was founded on Christian principles is challenged today. I would love to return to the time when we were guided by Christian principles. Life was so clearly defined when we were a cohesive society. Just my 2 cents worth.

  52. Way to go, Nicole! Another Hollywood personality not afraid to voice her beliefs regardless of the pushback and possible detriment to her career.
    You go girl!

  53. Excellent post. I believe that we are in and times and the chaos we are witnessing is but a part of “the beginning of woes”

  54. Excellent post. I believe that we are in and times and the chaos we are witnessing is but a part of “the beginning of woes”Bob…so succinctly put, so very spot on.

  55. Keep the faith Nicole!!! I think Vasu wants to have her own church so she can preach that she is correct while everyone else is wrong!

  56. Unfortunately, you lack a clear understanding of God’s Word which can only come from a regenerate heart from the Holt Spirit.
    I don’t say this to be mean or cruel, but to be true and factual…I have visited your website and read what you believe or proclaim. Your comparisons are inaccurate based on God’s Word, the Holy Scriptures/Bible.
    The “Christian” writers/PHD’s are all left leaning and heretical in their believes this their writings.
    Furthermore, a class or two in Hebrew or Greek may help your falsification in the comparisons made.

  57. That is because the last 30_40 years the democrats controlled the education. Today the young are brainwashed to believe in nothing. No flag, faith,patriotism, national anthem, and proper education. But they are experts to believe that protesting against FREE SPEECH and other unbelievable things like supporting antifa without knowing they are the braindead fascists…is what we have now. Democrats knew to prepare them for the free American destruction. And so much so, they cannot see beneath that. Sad. Very sad because they will suffer more than us and it’ll be too late

  58. Catholics are Christians? Roman Catholics? Well Jesus did say, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” He also said to “love thy enemies!” The Sanhedrin, pushed for his death! “Judge not, lest ye be Judged” we are quick to Judge!
    I’ve never seen so much hatred in America! We should go back to peace and love!

  59. Another stupid remarks by a Muslim read your own Koran it says change to your stupid cult or kill the infidal real god loving religious a joke

  60. Seriously? Your religion says kill anyone who doesn’t follow it. Mine says love your neighbor as yourself and serve one another in love. Pretty clear difference.

  61. Charles: My religion? LOL, I am an atheist. I do not believe in any god or gods.

    Of the three texts, the content in the Old Testament appears to be the most violent. Killing and destruction are referenced slightly more often in the New Testament (2.8%) than in the Quran (2.1%), but the Old Testament clearly leads—more than twice that of the Quran—in mentions of destruction and killing (5.3%).

    Let’s explore a few other points of comparison:

    1. The New Testament references the concept of love more than the Quran or the Old Testament
    2. The concept of grace and forgiveness appears more often in the Quran than the New Testament or Old Testament.
    3. The texts are fairly similar when it comes to the prevalence of positive and negative sentiment.
    4. The Old Testament includes more angry sentiments than the Quran or the New Testament.
    5. The Quran reflects more joy, trust, and fear than the Old or New Testament.

    Seems like you are forgetting these passages in the bible about killing non-believers.

    Deuteronomy 17

    If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant; 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded; 17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel; 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

    Or Deuteronomy 13:

    6 If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), 8 do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. 9 You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. 10 Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again.

    12 If you hear it said about one of the towns the Lord your God is giving you to live in 13 that troublemakers have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods you have not known), 14 then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, 15 you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock. 16 You are to gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the Lord your God. That town is to remain a ruin forever, never to be rebuilt.

    Or Numbers 31, where God commands the Israelites to attack Midian and kill all the men, all the married women and all the male children but to keep the virgin females as the spoils of war and distribute them among the soldiers. The reason offered for that barbarism? Two Midianite women had allegedly “tempted” two Israelite men to worship other gods.
