Regarding whether the Bible teaches you to do evil acts or not... it teaches whatever the reader wants it to. That's why it's so effective. It's open-ended as hell. No universal truth can be open to interpretation. It's like cell phone apps... There's a verse that supports every desire one can have.
Want to be a good person? There's a verse for that Want to be a pedophile? There's a verse for that Want to be a murderer? There's a verse for that

RROD? Force you to Pay for online? Jesus wouldn't do that.
10%-20% of your paycheck each week for temple...err...church offerings? Yeah, sounds like Jesus to me.
But the bible teaches us that doing questionably evil acts is fine as long as it's for the greater good or if it's just self-proclaimed "evil" that's suffering.
You know...the problem with doing the "Greater Good" is that, in order to follow this, one must also perform/allow "lesser evil".
Example: YOU can save everyone in the world of a horrible viral outbreak (as God has given you the ability to psychically detect & feel the person who has while blood cells making them immune to it), and all will know that it was you who saved them!
You must personally slaughter potentially millions of people, with your bare hands, until you get your blessed hands on the person whose blood can save everyone else.
