Ecclesiastes is all about how meaningless life is but today’s chapter is titled ‘Wisdom’. LOL!
“A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth.” – Ecclesiastes 7:1
I love how birth/death are compared to a name and perfume. LOL!
“Frustration is better than laughter, because a sad face is good for the heart.” – Ecclesiastes 7:3
Um…no. Science says otherwise.
“Like the crackling of thorns under the pot, so is the laughter of fools. This too is meaningless.” – Ecclesiastes 7:6
Laughter is meaningless? Damn…this book is dark.
“Do not say, ‘Why were the old days better than these?’ For it is not wise to ask such questions.” – Ecclesiastes 7:10
Well, asking the question is okay. It’s always good to ask questions. The problem with this particular question is people tend to assume the old days were better but don’t really look at how the old days were often not better.
“Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked?“ – Ecclesiastes 7:13
Um…most people. LOL! Even if someone can’t straighten a bent object by hand, it can be done by machine. Straightening things is not a godly power.
“Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.” – Ecclesiastes 7:20
No one who is righteous? I disagree. Everyone makes mistakes but there are many, many good people. Religion causes good people to do bad things. In the Bible God commands good people to do bad things. But to say there is no one who does what is right? That’s bullshit.
“I find more bitter than death the woman who is a snare,” – Ecclesiastes 7:26
The Bible can’t help but blame women for a man’s problems. The Bible tells us death is better than a woman. Sigh.
“I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all.” – Ecclesiastes 7:28
Wow! First the Bible says one upright man was found but earlier stated there are no righteous people. And second, holy fuck, why does the Bible hate women so much?!?!? We found a man, but all those evil women are just fucking evil!
Wisdom gained? Nope. Another horrible chapter in the Bible that says no one is righteous, but wait, one in every thousand men is righteous, but no women are righteous because, well, because righteousness is stored in the penis! Sheesh.
