It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today we head back to the book of Deuteronomy which is packed full of crazy! Today’s verse points to one of those great family values the Bible is so known for.
“You will have sons and daughters but you will not keep them, because they will go into captivity.” – Deuteronomy 28:41
This is in the section on punishments for being disobedient to God. It’s a great family value to punish the children for the deeds of the parents. What did the children do? Nothing. Yet they are the ones forced into captivity. An all-knowing god? Give me a break. This is god is an idiot if this is the punishment he comes up with. Punishing children through no fault of their own? What a horrible thing to do! Yet the Bible is described by Christians as a book of morals to lead one’s life by. Fortunately secular governments have devised far more just laws.
