Today’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday again shows us that the Bible is WAY off when it comes to promoting morals. Take 2 Peter 2:7-8, for example.
“..and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless 8 (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)—…” – 2 Peter 2:7-8
Twice in two verses the Bible describes Lot as righteous. Lot? Righteous? ROFL!!!! Lot is the man in Genesis who offered his two virgin daughters up to be raped by an angry crowd. Lot is the man who allowed his two daughters to have sex with him and impregnated both of them. (Please don’t say Lot was not at fault in this story. No man can be so drunk to get it up and have sex two nights in a row and not know it was his daughters he was having sex with.)
So Lot is righteous huh? That’s what the Bible says. A man who had sex with his daughters and prior to that offered them up to be gang raped. That’s righteous according to the Bible. LOL!
It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday! Two weeks ago we took a look at a talking snake. Last week we took a look at a talking donkey. This week we look at the same talking donkey, but now discussed in the New Testament.. LOL!
“But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey—an animal without speech—who spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.” – 2 Peter 2:16
In case you thought talking animals are mentioned only in the Old Testament, here’s a talking donkey discussed in the New Testament. A talking donkey!!! Sorry, but as I said last week, donkeys cannot talk. It is physically impossible for donkeys to speak.
If someone today told you his/her donkey spoke real words, you’d call them crazy and demand evidence. Not the case with the bible. No evidence needed. If it’s written down in the bible, it must be the word of God. We are told we MUST believe in it. Nope. Not me. I live in a world of logic, reason, and reality. I love the world I live in and I will never give it up for the absurd evidence-lacking world of talking animals in the bible.
Update: I made a mistake in the original posting of this. I stated this was a second talking donkey in the Bible. It’s not. It’s referring to the talking donkey in the Old Testament. I’ve updated the text above to reflect this. My apologies.
