What are some Bible verses about non believers?
WHEN Jehovah( God) speaks, those who are wise listen with great respect and respond to his words. Everything that Jehovah says is for our benefit, and he is keenly interested in our welfare. For example, how heartwarming it is to consider the way Jehovah addressed his ancient covenant people: "O if only you would actually pay attention to my commandments!" (Isaiah 48:18) The proven value of God's teachings should move us to listen to him and follow his guidance. The record of fulfilled prophecy dispels any doubt about Jehovah's determination to fulfill his promises. There is another vital principle that people must bear in mind regarding Jehovah's saving deeds. The righteously inclined may suffer because of their sins, but they will not be destroyed. It is different, though, for the unrighteous. "'There is no peace,' Jehovah has said, 'for the wicked ones.'" (Isaiah 48:22) Unrepentant sinners will not receive the peace that God has reserved for those who love him. Acts of salvation are not intended for the stubbornly wicked or the unbelieving. Such acts are only for those who have faith. Titus 1:15, 16; states: "All things are clean to clean [persons]. But to [persons] defiled and faithless nothing is clean, but both their minds and their consciences are defiled. 16 They publicly declare they know God, but they disown him by their works, because they are detestable and disobedient and not approved for good work of any sort". Revelation 22:14, 15 assures us peace from God is not the possession of the wicked. " Happy are those who wash their robes, that the authority [to go] to the trees of life may be theirs and that they may gain entrance into the city by its gates. 15 Outside are the dogs and those who practice spiritism and the fornicators and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone liking and carrying on a lie." "He has told you, O earthling man, what is good. And what is Jehovah asking back from you but to exercise justice and to love kindness and to be modest in walking with your God?" - MICAH 6:8. Of course, not just anybody can walk with Jehovah. This privilege is reserved for those who 'have met him by appointment,' so to speak. (Amos 3:3) How so? By having made an unreserved dedication to Jehovah and symbolized this by water baptism. So, what does Micah 6:8 mean for these individuals? To begin with, there is the requirement to "exercise justice." To "exercise justice" basically means to do what is right, what is required of us by God. This means that we must fulfill our obligations, the chief one being to give Jehovah exclusive devotion. Jehovah does not want and will not use as his fellow workers any individuals who are wicked. This is made clear at Psalm 50:16-18, where we read: "But to the wicked one God will have to say: 'What right do you have to enumerate my regulations, and that you may bear my covenant in your mouth? Why, you-you have hated discipline, and you keep throwing my words behind you. Whenever you saw a thief, you were even pleased with him; and your sharing was with adulterers.' How the lot of the wicked differs from that of the righteous! Wicked ones may appear to prosper materially for a time, but they are not prospering spiritually. This is evident from the psalmist's further words: "The wicked are not like that, but are like the chaff that the wind drives away. That is why the wicked ones will not stand up in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of righteous ones." (Psalm 1:4, 5) Note that the psalmist says, "the wicked are not like that." He means that they are not like godly people. The wicked are not "rich toward God." Hence, they have no more security and stability than does chaff, the thin covering on kernels of grain. After grain was harvested in ancient times, it was taken to a threshing floor, a flat area generally on high ground. There sledges with sharp stone or iron teeth on their underside were pulled over the grain by animals to break the stalks into pieces and loosen the kernels from the chaff. Next, a winnowing shovel was used to pick up the whole mixture and toss it into the air against the wind. (Isaiah 30:24) The kernels fell back onto the threshing floor, while the breeze carried the straw off to the side and blew the chaff away. (Ruth 3:2) After the grain was passed through a sieve to remove pebbles and the like, it was ready for storage or grinding. (Luke 22:31) But the chaff was gone. Just as the kernels of grain dropped to the ground and were preserved while the chaff was blown away, so the righteous will remain and the wicked will be removed. Surely, though, we are happy that such evildoers will soon be gone forever. With them out of the way, people who take delight in Jehovah's law will be greatly blessed. Indeed, obedient humans will eventually receive God's gift of everlasting life. "And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be.... Psalm 37:10

Jude 1 (KJV) . 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earn…estly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. .

Exodus 20:14 You must not commit adultery. Proverbs 6:32 But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys himself. Look up these passages: Matthew 5:27, Mat…thew 19:18, Mark 10:11, Luke 18:20, John 8:4, 1Corinthians 6:9. A good report of what happens due to adultery is found in the book of 2 Samuel chapter 11. David the king has an adulterous relationship which leads to a murder which leads to ruined lives and a whole bunch of other woes. a few from the Old Testament; Genesis 38:2 And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her. Numbers 31:18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. Hosea 3:1 Then said the LORD unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress , according to the love of the LORD toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine.
There are lots of verses about this. The Biblical idea of believing in God is not merely a factual acknowledgment of his existence, but rather a transforming faith that impact…s one's lifestyle. Belief in God the Father also requires belief in Jesus, who is also God (the Bible describes a Triune God, that is, one God made up of three persons--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) such that you cannot have one without the other. John 1:12-13 "Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God." John 3:16-19 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son." John 5:24 "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life." John 14:11-12a "Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing." Acts 16:31b "...'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved...'" Romans 10:9-10 "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." 1 Corinthians 15:1-5 "Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve." Ephesians 2:8-9 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast." James 2:19-20 "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that-and shudder...faith without deeds is useless" (verses are quoted from the New International Version of the Bible)

John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:18 - He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Luke 19:27 "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay [them] before me." (King James Version) Answer: None. To say th…at Luke 19:27 advocates that followers of Christ kill nonbelievers is to take it entirely out of context. It was spoken in a parable, and refers to the final fate of nonbelievers at the judgement.
John 20:29. Thomas touched Jesus and Jesus told him more blessed are those who haven't seen and believe.

1 Timothy 5:8

Some Bible verses that advocate killing non-believers are found in the Old Testament. Some of them are: Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the p…riest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT) You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB) If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives. (Leviticus 20:13 NAB) A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB) If a man commits adultery with another man's wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT) A priest's daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB) Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB) They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB) Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him.

There is more than just one. What follows is by no means a complete list. However, taken together, it's possible to get a feel for the Bible's views on astrology, star and su…n worship, etc. Exodus 20:1-6 1And God spake all these words, saying, 2I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them : for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Deuteronomy 18:9-12 9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch . 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD : and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 2 Kings 21:1-5 1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hephzibah. 2And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. 3For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. 4And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name. 5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. Isaiah 47:12-14 12Stand now with thine enchantments , and with the multitude of thy sorceries , wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. 13Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators , stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. 14Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame : there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it. Ezzekiel 8:15,16 15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. 16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
Yes, there are many Bible verses regarding believing. One of the most popular is "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him …shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16 NIV). The verse concisely describes the Christian philosophy on belief and salvation, which is that belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God is the only path to Salvation.
People throw the word "believe" around a lot these days... and very few [if any] bother to define what it is that they are believing. The dictionary defines "believe" as: "…accepting that someone is telling the truth." "Synonyms: trust, have faith in, have confidence in." The first scripture that came to mind to answer this question, was a passage that tells us that Jesus doesn't trust men. Men who " believed on Him! ": "...many people saw the miraculous signs He was doing and believed in His name. But Jesus would not entrust Himself to them , for He knew all men. He did not need man's testimony about man, for He knew what was in a man ." (John 2:23-25 NIV) In fact... in John 8: verse 30 to the end of the chapter... a group of Jews who "believed" in Jesus tried to kill Him before they were done with their conversation. "I know you are Abraham's descendants. Yet you are ready to kill Me , because you have no room for My Word ." (verse 37 NIV) The Bible, of course, comes from the direction of "believing" God, as opposed to "believing" in men. Of this, Paul says: "...I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the One you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough." (II Cor.11:3-4 NIV) The Bible warns God's servants to be wary of men. To measure what men say against what God's Word says. The question, then, referring to the Bible, discovers that men should be ascertaining, first, what they believe about God... whether or not it's according to His Word -- and then measure the beliefs of others against that. "I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Be on your guard against men ; they will hand you over to the councils and flog you in their synagogues [churches]." (Matt.10:16-17 NIV) Paul's warning is still valid, today. Many modern professing Christian folks will easily "believe" in others who come to them merely acknowledging "Jesus' name"... without delving into what they "believe" about Him. Whether or not their beliefs comply with scripture. But, then, most modern professing Christians don't study God's Word, to know what the Bible says, either. Biblically speaking... Jesus' distrust of men should be a sound passage by which to approach one's "belief in others." He loves us... and He died for us: but until we "prove" ourselves to Him... repent and learn to entrust ourselves to Him -- He can't entrust Himself to us.
None. This would be contrary to Christian teaching. Jesus said 'love your neighbours as yourself' burning a non believer is not a loving act. The above answer is not com…pletely true: A priest's daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death.
