A common destiny for all? Doubtful given God’s hateful rhetoric against so many groups of people.
“All share a common destiny—the righteous and the wicked, the good and the bad, the clean and the unclean, those who offer sacrifices and those who do not.” – Ecclesiastes 9:2
Okay, we all die. In that case, yes, we all have the same destiny.
“The hearts of people, moreover, are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts while they live, and afterward they join the dead.” – Ecclesiastes 9:3
LOL! The authors of this chapter really hate people, don’t they. YOU ARE ALL EVIL BASTARDS!!!
“Enjoy life with your wife,whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun—all your meaningless days.” – Ecclesiastes 9:9
Unless the person you love is of the same sex, a different color, or from a different tribe. Then you and your partner can both go to hell! That is what the Bible says.
“Now there lived in that city a man poor but wise, and he saved the city by his wisdom. But nobody remembered that poor man.” – Ecclesiastes 9:15
Bullshit. That never happened. If a man truly saved a city by his wisdom alone, he would be remembered. Complete bullshit.
Ecclesiastes is getting old fast. Life is meaningless. We all die. Wisdom is good, but we all die. Rich and poor, we all die. Death. Death. Death. What a drag.
