My favorite Bible verse by far is Ezekiel 23:20. Look it up and you’ll understand why. 🙂 Just a few verses after this is another interesting Bible verse.
“I will direct my jealous anger against you, and they will deal with you in fury. They will cut off your noses and your ears, and those of you who are left will fall by the sword. They will take away your sons and daughters, and those of you who are left will be consumed by fire.” – Ezekial 23:25
To put some context on this, Ezekiel 23 is about two sisters who are prostitutes. God is not happy about this and delivers the verse above. What is crazy about this? The fact the Bible cares nothing about women. It gives women almost no choice in the Bible. Their bodies are to be used by men with no input from the women. God is okay with slavery and rape, but when a women willingly has sex for money or other services, that’s suddenly too much for God.
Does the punishment fit the supposed crime? Noses cut off! Ears cut off! Then falling by the sword! In other words, torture followed by death is the punishment for being a prostitute. Not only that, but the sons and daughters who are not prostitutes are also punished in the same way!!! And anyone left is to be consumed by fire! Wow!
Here’s something else. Isn’t God supposed to be perfect? Anger and jealousy are not traits of a perfect being. So which is it? Is God imperfect, or is the Bible one big, fat lie? Now that’s some deep thinking!
