Today we move into a new book, Ecclesiastes, in the Bible. Ecclesiastes is a 12 chapter book in the Old Testament, often credited to Solomon, but modern scholars conclude otherwise. But when you believe in talking donkeys, it’s not much of a leap to believe man named Solomon, who the Lord spoke to, wrote this book.
Ecclesiastes is a series of chapters that discuss the meaning of life and how to live one’s life. Okay, maybe we’ll learn something useful, but you know as well as I that we won’t. The information will either be worthless, or helpful, but if helpful, not advice you wouldn’t already obtain leading a secular life.
Coming soon will be the first chapter. The title of the first chapter is “Everything is Meaningless” which is already a bullshit title. Everything is meaningless? That’s what Christians will have you believe. They may not say everything is meaningless, but they’ll say that all you do on Earth is essentially meaningless, because if you follow Jesus, you’ll go to heaven and lead a more meaningful existence. Thus your actions on Earth, except for the action of following Jesus, is meaningless. It’s a bullshit argument, but one I often hear.
