It Just Makes No Sense

Can someone explain to me where it would make sense how two groups of people can claim to be reading the same Bible, but understand it in totally opposite ways.

The last four years I have learned more about politics than I ever thought I would. I have also learned a lot about some people that profess to be “Christians” yet they are saying terrible things about people they don’t agree with. In some cases they are telling just plain ole lies.

When I read the Bible I do not find anywhere that tells us we should say terrible things about people or lie about them. I have been astonished to see that some people I have known for years and gone to church with, even some family members and some friends are among those that are doing those terrible things.

Jesus set an example of how we are to treat others and I don’t find lying about them or saying mean, ugly and belittling things about them anywhere in the Bible. If you have read it there, please tell me where.
