If all else fails, you can stone them to death (Deuteronomy 21:18-21)
Yup…just never has made any sense at all has it David?
Oh, dear Krishna, this is hillarious! Very well done, David, you twisted soul. [a sincere compliment from the likes of me]
This is seriously brilliant!
hahaha LOL! this one is priceless David…..ha!
you’re just as bent as me y’all 😉
This is great!!! I don’t believe God kills, steals, or destroys in any way. This very topic was brought up in a gathering and talk about ticking people off to the point of yelling and calling me a heretic. People have so misinterpreted the bible to believe that God has to wipe out his children to accomplish his purpose. Even in our own standards Hitler is known as the most evil man that has ever existed, yet God is accused of even worse crimes. The reality is that God sent Jesus because He loved us, not because He had a burning need to purify the earth. It’s called the Good News:)
hahahaha! As the page was loading and I saw the title, I thought it was going to be a dad selling her daughter into slavery.
Kris’ biblical parents would be great too. Forget the Sophia drawings, David should do a coffee-table book about “Biblical Parents”. A whole series with Bible quotes to go along. Or maybe the title should be: “Why NOT to be Biblical Parents”
If I were a righteous and just God, I would have just drowned them all.
Out of His sheer mercy, He has chosen to save some.
Hitler was more benevolent (yeah…even more righteous) than the version of a vengeful god we have been taught to believe.
Whoa. Now that you say it that way ….
And … thank you for saying it that way.
It wasn’t out of his mercy. It was a calculated maneuver. He took the ones least likely to challenge or question him and preserved those while destroying anyone who would have a problem with his blanket verdict and wholesale genocide hiding behind a “natural disaster” because that’s just how absolutely absolute power corrupts.
Are we getting the picture yet? Human beings wrote that shit. It wasn’t inspired by anything but apoplectic indignation and control-freak scare tactics. There is no darkness in light and there’s none of that vile bullshit in Love.
Wake the hell up people.
was thinking this yesterday, but now I’m ready for a millstone drawing…
I’d say better to leave the judgement to God, than everyone do their own lynching, aborting, jihading, honor killing.
Well Brigitte I’d say you just DID say it.
Have no clue why you think it is appropriate to the conversation.
Gary, are you editorializing again or going to say something with substance.
Laughing my ass off now Brigitte.
Of course you actually responding to my point would be much more helpful than your silly attempt at sidestepping it. 😉
The god portrayed by most of the Christian religion today (Sabio’s going to love this 😉 ) does not exist.
The vengeful monster who would destroy and/or torture for all eternity most of mankind for simply being the way He made us…is nothing more than an imaginary tool in the hands of those seeking to control others.
I still believe God exists…but not that god.
Many people can’t conceive of a world where the intentions of the vast majority are evil continually. The people in this world were so wicked that they were characterized in this way. Somebody missed reading that part of the story. This isn’t people who cussed at a red light or just lusted after someone. This was evil run amock. Only by God’s grace did He have one remnant family.
I can’t believe that people really still believe that shit. I just can’t fathom it.
Sorry to disagree with you VPM – but the flood story is a myth that predates Christian literature. It not only is an impossible story scientifically, but it represents a gross perversion of the God Jesus came and revealed.
