It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse is a set of verses that tell an interesting story of Jesus not being the loving guy Christians make him out to be.
“And he continued, ‘You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions! For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and mother,’ and, ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’ But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is Corban (that is, devoted to God)—then you no longer let them do anything for their father or mother. Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.” – Mark 7:9-13
Basically, the people have determined God’s laws of putting children to death is unjust, but Jesus says otherwise. Jesus says the old laws must be followed, including those that put your children to death. Remember though, Jesus loves you, but only if you murder your family. Ahhh…isn’t that so cute? 😊
