It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse is filled with a heavy dose of crazy. I hope you’re ready!
“No man who has any defect may come near: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed…” – Leviticus 21:18
This refers to who can and cannot bring a food offering to God. Think about this for a second. Anyone who is deformed or has a disability of any kind is forbidden from bringing food to God. What kind of god is this? Would an all-loving god turn away people who are not perfect? Everyone is supposedly created by God, according to the Bible. Why would this creator turn away people he created? He created them with these disabilities. This verse is one of many that show just how disgusting and hateful this god is in the Bible. He is not a god worthy of worship, that is for sure. The verse itself continues with a few more specifics on disabilities that disgust God.
