The Bible also says stupid shit like...
The Bible is not only promoting a lot of horrible things, but it's also so full of inaccuracies and contradictions.
“… I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” — Genesis 32:30
“No man hath seen God at any time…”– John 1:18
“Cursed be he that lieth with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of this mother…” — Deuteronomy 27:22
“And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter…it is a wicked thing….” — Leviticus 20:17
[But what was god’s reaction to Abraham, who married his sister — his father’s daughter?] See Genesis 20:11-12
“And God said unto Abraham, As for Sara thy wife…I bless her, and give thee a son also of her…” — Genesis 17:15-16
The Power of God
“… with God all things are possible.” — Matthew 19:26
“…The LORD was with Judah; and he drove out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.” — Judges 1:19
“The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father…” — Ezekiel 18:20
“I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation…” — Exodus 20:5
“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.” — James 1:13
“And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham…” — Genesis 22:1
Resurrection of the Dead
“…he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more. ” — Job 7:9
“…the hour is coming, in which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth….” — John 5:28-29
And you can go on and on for pages.
The Bible is so poorly written that it makes Game of Thrones Season 8 look like Shakespeare.
What is incredible about the Bible is that such a concoction of contradictions could be believed by anyone to have been written by an omniscient god.
Now the fact that you assert that ONLY those who have "faith" (Which by it's definition is blind belief without evidence...) are the only ones who will be "saved" and the others... Well. They get less than an ideal ending... Is just your typical coercion of others by using the power of fear and threats. - Which is a powerful tool to bend people to your indoctrinated ideology. It's blatant bullshit.
God is written as an evil character.
He flooded the entire world and drowned countless millions of people, because supposedly all of them except Noah (likely story) only had evil thoughts at the time.
Did all the millions of babies and infants he drowned also have evil thoughts?
Whops, another plot hole in this well written story...
And since God is supposedly omnipotent, there should have been other ways to remove the evil thoughts without subjecting millions of babies to drowning.

If God won't save the people who don't believe in this absolute mess of inaccuracies, contradictions and promotion of horrible things, then it's like he doesn't even want them to.
