Proverbs – Chapter 21: Untitled

Well, the big take-away from the last chapter is that you should never ever fuck with God’s weights and measures.  LOL! Can the Bible top that today? Let’s find out.

“Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.” – Proverbs 21:9

More wisdom to avoid those quarrelsome wives!

“Whoever loves pleasure will become poor;   whoever loves wine and olive oil will never be rich.” – Proverbs 21:17

Stay away from the olive oil!

“Better to live in a desert  than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife.” – Proverbs 21:19

 Not only does the wife quarrel, she nags!  

“The wise store up choice food and olive oil,  but fools gulp theirs down.” – Proverbs 21:20

Wait, now olive oil is good? Make up your damn mind!

Man, I don’t know what to do!  Do I avoid the olive oil or do I go out and get a bunch now!  If I want to be wise, I need to store up on olive oil! LOL! Biblical wisdom at its finest!Uncate

Proverbs – Chapter 20: Untitled

I’ll get straight to it today because I love the first verse of this chapter.

“Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.” – Proverbs 20:1

LOL! Looking for a fight? Beer is your choice! LOL!

“The righteous lead blameless lives; blessed are their children after them.” – Proverbs 20:7

The Bible tells us no one is blameless so this verse makes no sense. Or if it does, there are no blessed children and no righteous adults.

“Differing weights and differing measures—the Lord detests them both.” – Proverbs 20:10

Don’t fuck with God’s weights and measures!!!

“Even small children are known by their actions, so is their conduct really pure and upright?” – Proverbs 20:11

Holy fuck, now the Bible is going after the children.

“If someone curses their father or mother,  their lamp will be snuffed out in pitch darkness.” – Proverbs 20:20

If this was true then all of humanity would be gone after one generation! Every child will curse their mother and father at times. It’s part of what we call childhood.

“The Lord detests differing weights, and dishonest scales do not please him.” – Proverbs 20:23

God hates it so much when you fuck with his weights that he listed it twice in this chapter! LOL!

I’m not sure I can get over how important weights and measures are in the Bible. Rape? No problem. Slavery?  A-Okay. Murdering children? Go right ahead. Change the weights? DON’T YOU FUCKING DARE!!!

Daniel 8:10

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and for the second week in a row I bring you an anti-science verse from the book of Daniel.

“It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them.” – Daniel 8:10

So the stars can come down from the heavens and be stomped on?  Um…sure. Whatever you say Daniel.

Proverbs – Chapter 19: Untitled

Let us continue with the ‘wisdom’ Proverbs offers us.

“The one who gets wisdom loves life;   the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper.” – Proverbs 19:8

I suppose that depends on the type of wisdom. I can’t image the wisdom offered in Proverbs lets one love life.

“It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury—how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!” – Proverbs 19:10

More from the Bible on slaves. The better wisdom would be to directly state that slavery is to be abolished.

“A foolish child is a father’s ruin, and a quarrelsome wife is like  the constant dripping of a leaky roof.” – Proverbs 19:13

Hear that ladies?  Don’t be quarrelsome! Sit and listen to your husbands and obey them!  🙂

“Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.” – Proverbs 19:14

God will provide all godly men with godly wives. A woman with no choice is a godly woman.

“Discipline your children, for in that there is hope;” – Proverbs 19:18

In other words, it is godly to beat the fuck out of your children.

Well, quite a bit of misogyny in this chapter. Women have little to no choice in biblical matters. A woman who questions is evil in the eyes of this god. Oh, and go ahead and knock your kids around a bit.

Atheism Quotes – Emma Thompson

Today’s Atheist quote comes from actress Emma Thompson.

“I’m an atheist… I regard religion with fear and suspicion. It’s not enough to say that I don’t believe in God. I actually regard the system as distressing: I am offended by some of the things said in the Bible and the Qur’an, and I refute them.” – Emma Thompson

Couldn’t have said it better!

Proverbs – Chapter 18: Untitled

The last chapter provided the wisdom to parents that their secular children are fools.  Can this chapter provide more useful ‘wisdom’? Let’s find out.

“Fools find no pleasure in understanding,   but delight in airing their own opinions.” – Proverbs 18:2

I agree. It would be nice if Christians, and in particular Christian politicians, read the Bible and followed this verse.  

“He who finds a wife finds what is good  and receives favor from the Lord.” – Proverbs 18:22

So those who choose to remain unmarried are not favored by God?  And does the woman have any choice in the matter?

I agree with Proverbs 18:2. It’s interesting that it’s a verse with actual good wisdom, but one Christians often don’t follow.  LOL!
