For today’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday I decided to share a verse describing the birth of Jesus.
“This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.” – Matthew 1:18
Yes, that’s right, Jesus is supposedly the result of a virgin birth. There’s a lot of crazy in the Bible, but given the importance of this event in the Bible, this verse may be one of the craziest in the Bible. Pregnant, but a virgin? Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. So what actually happened? If we assume for a moment, and I don’t, that Jesus was real, and we assume, and I don’t, that Joseph and Mary were real, I think it’s pretty clear what happened. Joseph and Mary had sex before marriage and didn’t use a sheepskin condom or didn’t pull out in time. Joseph impregnated Mary and the two were shamed by society into covering up the truth. Therefore they hatched this crazy story about God raping Mary.
If Jesus was real, which is the worse story? Joseph and Mary having sex before marriage or God raping Mary? Mary had no choice. According to the Bible, God raped Mary. You’ve got to love the moral the Bible teaches. When a Christian asks you where you get your morals without God, respond with “you mean the moral of God raping Mary”. Take a picture of their reaction! 🙂
