That is the issue with most religions, I don't get why people can follow these things that were created mainly by people hundreds of years after Jesus, therefore various Kings had a large influence on the Bible than any "original Christians" did.
Also, these restrictions are really something to laugh at! The Bible is anti-women, and promotes killing your kids (Christians are pro-life but the Bible is not pro-life at all lol) but yet jacking off is the big issue?
"God teaches the use of a bizarre ritual using cursed “bitter water” to abort a fetus who was conceived through infidelity. "(Numbers 5:11-21)
"The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open. "(Hosea 13:16)
Seriously, people that truly believe in the Bible are screwed up.
