For this week’s crazy Bible verse I continue with the theme of God commanding the killing of children. Morbid? Yes. Biblically accurate? Also yes.
“You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters.” – Leviticus 26:29
This is not the only verse in the Bible discussing the eating of children. I previously discussed Jeremiah 19:9 on a crazy bible verse Tuesday.
There’s not much to say here. The crazy is quite obvious. This verse is in response to God commanding you to obey him. If you don’t, he will make you eat your children. Which is funny as yesterday I discussed Deuteronomy 24 in which God says:
“Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.” – Deuteronomy 24:16
I guess eating your children is exempt from this command. 🙂
