Introducing: Bible verse of the day, on Twitter

I’ve finally come up with a reason for people to follow me on Twitter: now through the foreseeable future, I’ll be tweeting one Bible verse per day. I’ll be using the Skeptics Annotated Bible for ideas on things to tweet. Major props to Steve Wells, creator of the Skeptics Annotated Bible, for creating that site. Here’s the first one: Bible Verse OTD: God to Eve “In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children. Thy husband shall rule over thee” Gen 3:16

  • JamesM

    And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight. -Ezekiel 4:12

  • JamesM

    Ezekiel 4:9 Bread suspiciously omits the most important ingredient. You can’t glorify God without it.

  • Ned Champlain

    Woman is created as an after thought Gen 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

  • Margaret

    Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

  • mnb0

    Psalm 137:9

    Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

    The skeptic annotated Bible is awesome. Every atheist should read it.

    The New Testament and especially the Four Gospels are much better, especially given the fact that they are written by humans and thus should be read in their historical context.
    Still don’t forget about the fig tree and the Gardarene swines.

    I also can recommend Revalations. That one must be the first recorded LSD-trip.

    In case anyone needs some quick highlights:

    It’s a bit over the top now and then, but it contains some truely shocking stuff too. When confronted christians either prefer to neglect them, don’t know them or start talking about the Gospels.

  • frankb

    Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

    Shorter- “If you’ve got a life, there is no point in hanging around me.”

    God to Eve “In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children. Thy husband shall rule over thee” Gen 3:16

    Bringing forth children was my wife’s greatest joy, and mine too. That part sounds like it was writen by a sourpuss of a man.
    I try to rule over my wife but she won’t let me.

  • piero

    Great idea. No Christian of my acquaintance has ever read the Bible (most of them are Catholics, anyway, and the Catholic church actively disencourages reading it).

    I’m convinced that if the Bible were made compulsory reading at school, the number of atheists would rise to about 97% of the population (allowing for a 3% of unredeemable psychopaths).

    Good idea. :)

    A couple of suggestions from the KJV: :)

    Two examples of people being tortured to death for consensual sex between adults:


    Leviticus 20:14 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.

    Leviticus 21:9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.

    An example of women executed for having sex with non-human animals, and non-moral agents getting morally blamed for sex (the non-human animal could be any animal capable of sex with a woman, so clearly many of them aren’t moral agents; the writers of the OT apparently did not realize that):

    Leviticus 20:16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

  • grumpyoldfart

    Wise words from God:

    Malachi 2:3 Behold I will corrupt your seed and spread dung upon your faces.

    Leviticus 26:22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children.

    Leviticus 26:29 Ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.

  • Lukas

    This sounds like a perfect idea for a topic-specific separate Twitter account.

  • mnb0

    “if the Bible were made compulsory reading at school”
    Excellent idea. But don’t forget the theology of the Flying Spaghetti Monster either, just as a contrast.

    Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

    Shorter- “If you’ve got a life, there is no point in hanging around me.”

    That reminds me. I should do a rewrite of an old blog post I once did, pointing out the passages that made me look at early Christianity as an apocalypse cult. Naturally, the passage there brings to mind some ideas: Cults encourage members to value the cult over their other ties in life. Self-loathing people are probably a vulnerable target for easy recruitment.

  • Rando

    You should dedicate some of them. Here’s one for Newt Gingrich!

    Leviticus 20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

    Here’s one for Harold Camping.

    Deuteronomy 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

    We could do this all day, any more ideas of people who claim to follow every word of the babble, that do things the babble explicitly orders them to be put to death for.
