Any Questions?

 

We’ll call this Tuesday’s Internet Gem: 

The Bible is painfully honest. It shows Jacob, the father of its “chosen people,” to be a deceiver. It describes Moses, the lawgiver, as an insecure, reluctant leader, who, in his first attempt to come to the aid of his own people, killed a man, and then ran for life to the desert. It portrays David not only as Israel’s most loved king, general, and spiritual leader, but as one who took another man’s wife and then, to cover his own sin, conspired to have her husband killed. At one point, the Scriptures accuse the people of God, the nation of Israel, as being so bad they made Sodom and Gomorrah look good by comparison ( Ezekiel 16:46-52). The Bible represents human nature as hostile to God. It predicts a future full of trouble. It teaches that the road to heaven is narrow and the way to hell is wide. Scripture was clearly not written for those who want simple answers or an easy, optimistic view of religion and human nature.

Whew!  It’s not for me because I want the simple answer.  They should put that in the first sentence so I don’t have to waste my time.

    I don’t practice religion anymore, so I don’t turn to the Good Bad Book when I’m thinking about – well, anything. But if you’re familiar with any of it, it’s clearly a messier view of humanity than the fundies keep painting.

    That is correct Kevin. I just get a hoot out of others trying to interpret and pimp it. The marketing talents of these folks just makes me chuckle.

    If he takes his Olanzapine, I’ll listen to what he has to say.

  4. Adorable Girlfriend Says:

    I think Sally is high. Either that or our little stalker has returned. I suspect the stalker will be by since I left the butt munch with a puzzled face yesterday. What-evah!
