Spoiler Alert for the Bible

You might be ruining the Bible for the person reading it… but I’ve always found the ending to be anti-climactic anyway:

    I’ve read that book – he gets the girl in the end…

      In the face of this tragedy you want to make a joke.  Go back and play your video games and stay away from decent people.  Do you have any family?  Would you want people making jokes if something of this nature happened to them?  What a monstrous DB and I’m sure this cannot be changed so live with it under your rock.

    The bible ends on a cliffhanger. Laaame. (Rev 22:20)

      “Bible 3: The Book of Mormon” is terrible too. It let the whole trilogy down IMO.

    “He,” who? Millions of people die in the Bible.

    But seriously, I think anyone who would say such a thing to someone reading the Bible is a dick. And I’m sure many Bible readers will be elated by the opportunity to reply with the details about the resurrection of Jesus.

      If someone said that to me when I was reading the Bible I’d crack up. Not everyone who reads a so-called holy text has bought in to the fairy tales.

        Or lacks a sense of humor for that matter.

           Indeed.  I’m certain that even many of my Christian friends would find it funny.

        Hey Silo, just wanted to thank you for the link to “The Authoritarians” you posted a while back.  Really interesting read.

        I buy into the “fairy tales”…but if someone said that to me I would laugh because it’s a funny comment, simple as that. (even though it’s not how it ends. See? we can’t help it!)

         Back when I was still a Christian I thought Mel Brook’s “One God” joke in “History of the World Part I” was hilarious.  Everyone else in the room (who were Jewish) looked at me like I was crazy.

    I thought the spoiler is that he becomes a zombie.

  • Joan

    No, no, he comes back!  Like Kenny in South Park!

    • NotTHATguest

      Kenny’s the Messiah!

        “Jews killed Kenny!”

    Then you get a Christian who grabs on to the opportunity to talk and launches into a “But he rose again!  He lives!” speech and you’re trapped.

    I thought it ended with an Apocalypse and everybody dies. Of course they come back as zombies. I am waiting for the sequel: Zombie Gospels.

    It ended when Perry Mason called out a surprise witness – who testified under oath that the father, the son and the holy ghost were indeed one and the same.

    God was sent to the State Pen for all the crimes against humanity listed in the bible..

    Meanwhile Perry, Della, and that investigator guy shared a quick joke, then freezed as the end credits rolled ~ Am I the only one who caught that episode?

    • OldSchool

      Another pathetic joker who at this moment is looking out over a sea of old pizza, empty beer cans and video game jewel cases in his pajamas.  What a stinking excuse for a human being you are.

  • Peekaboo

    Everyone on this thread mocks the BIble but yet apparently haven’t read it. The BIble does not end with Jesus’ death or His resurrection. How can you deny something you are ignorant about?

      Hey there troll, I’ll feed you.

      The climactic point of a story does NOT equate to ending.

      “meaning “staircase” and “ladder”) or turning point of a narrative work is its point of highest tension or drama or when the action starts in which the solution is given.”
