Smith Mocks God Killing Herod, Calling God An Assassin

Proverbs 18:5-6

It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment. A fool’s lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.

Sam’s Wholesale Club, a division of Wal-Mart, is doing the Lord’s work by removing a blasphemous book from its shelves, and sadly many reactionary Christians are responding with foolish lips calling for a boycott, not of the book, but of Sam’s Club!

The atheist at the center of the controversy, Brendan Smith, must be laughing all the way to the bank for duping conservatives into opposing a decision by Sam’s to stop selling his book. Why did they fall for the trap? Because Smith called his book “The Brick Bible”. It is a collection of distorted “stories” illustrated with LEGO bricks and characters. Though the book itself openly mocks God and the Bible over and over again, many naïve Christians are so ignorant of the Bible they don’t even see it and are buying the book for their children.

I have just begun to look through the book online, but it is full of sarcasm and ridicule, showing God on a hammock on the Seventh Day, and portraying Jonathan and David as homosexuals. One of Smith’s chapters supposedly tells the story of Ananias & Sapphira which he calls “Accept Communism or Die.”  Other chapters include the “Temple Tantrum” (Jesus Cleansing the Temple), and “Herod Assassinated” (by God), “Instructions for Genocide”and “Camp Defecation”.

It is so bad that Christians and conservatives such as Townhall, PuritanDownloads, and Jesus2020 are even using their advertising dollars to support the author’s online version of the book. Even more shockingly, this guy has been getting away with this for about 10 years(!) and hardly anybody has taken note of it.

Other Christian websites are covering the story, portraying Smith as a poor persecuted Christian who just wants to the get the truth of the Bible into people’s hands with a unique and fun format.

CNET mentions the idea that it wasn’t by a Christian only in passing:

Smith said that the only complaint he’d managed to uncover himself is one post on the Sam’s Club Facebook wall contending that “The Brick Bible” [was] created by someone who doesn’t believe in God.”

Other groups totally missing the import include  Christian Today of Australia,

Marisa Martin of World Net Daily goes so far as to give the atheist the benefit of the doubt that he is not really up to no good, and heaps praise upon the book:

To be fair, the majority of Smith’s illustrations are straight, true to the text, biblical depictions that should give no offense to anyone. They are extraordinarily inventive and fun to look at….

Smith correctly cites Bible verse and chapter for each picture and occasionally makes editorial comments, which are clearly marked as such…. At least he still concerns himself with the Bible and finds it worthy, in the sense that he is dedicating his life’s work to it. A highly unusual undertaking for an atheist…!

…We are also much broader minded than our critics paint us, with Sunday school teachers and churches using Smith’s books and posters, atheist or not…Whether intentional or not, the power of the Bible is still evident – even when translated into little plastic bricks.

Martin, who claims to be a Christian doesn’t know her Bible, or doesn’t care that God, Jesus, and the Bible are deliberately being attacked. Smith regularly leaves out relevant passages which counter his hatred of the God of the Bible.

For Smith’s part, he brags on his own website that he is trying to inculcate a morality the opposite of what the Bible teaches. He is honest about his intentions, even while lying about the Bible.

Making Fun of Apostles Being Freed From Prison, Equating it With a Magic Trick

 

Smith Writes: One of the best things about Bible stories is how they remind us to teach our kids the moral values that we might not think to teach them otherwise. Take for example: racial intolerance, deception, and favoritism. Our four new stories added to the Genesis section of the website today begin with the patriarch Abraham aghast at the idea of his son Isaac marrying anyone of the Canaanite race. We move on to Isaac deceiving foreigners about his wifejust as his father had before him. Then Isaac and Rebekah bear twins, and each favors one twin more than the other, culminating in Rebekah and Jacob using lies and deception to fool blind, elderly Isaac and screw over Esau.

Of course, God doesn’t just show his approval for these moral values by blessing Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Those who know their Bible know God himself outlaws intermarriage with other races, practices favoritism by treating the Israelites differently than all other nations, and occasionally even uses deception to accomplish his goals. So parents, teach your children well. Love one child more than the next. Lie to foreigners that your wife is your sister. Conspire with a loved one to deceive an elderly family member, and you too will be walking in the righteous path of the Lord.

We have so little knowledge of the Holiness of God, that blasphemy passes by us with hardly a sigh.

Has anybody stopped to think why an atheist wants to publish a book of “children’s Bible stories?” It is because he has an agenda. Part of it is the same agenda and tactic skeptics, atheists and various leftists have been trying to use for years: disparage the Bible by claiming it is full of pornographic and violent content,[1]. But Smith also twists other parts of the Bible and deliberately turns the Truth of God’s Word on its head.  Smith’s uses children’s LEGO characters to distort the Bible, in hopes of getting it into the hands of children, or worse yet, into the hands of adults who will buy his perverted view of God’s Holy Word.

So have Christians thanked Sam’s Club for pulling this attack on the Bible?  No, it seems as if, even after knowing that the “Bible” was being distributed by a hater of God and His Word, Christians in the name of the First Amendment and supposedly religious freedom are coming to the book’s defense.  This is foolishness of the highest sort, “accepting the person of the wicked”. Christians do not ascribe to the notion that we will “defend to the death” someone’s right to attack God. If a man wants to attack God, let him defend himself. But I wish it were only the First Amendment people were defending. They seem to equate this man’s blasphemy with the Bible

Here are some of the posts on a website showing the silliness of Christians

What about all the Christian parents that want to purchase for their children…..Sams ignores the majority and caves to the minority…..no more Sam’s for me…..

I can’t believe in a nation built by God fearing men that I’m hearing this. Sams I hope every Christian family stops going thru your doors. Take everything else on your shelves that r violent sexually provocative…[2]   your shelves are full of it. But sure yank a BIBLE!!!

Sams this is a dumb move on your behalf, we the people of God need to hold our heads high and take a stand that we are believers and we want more of these things in our stores and less of the world things. I am a Sunday school teacher and you have very few thing for us as it is …IN GOD I TRUST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are so quick to take offense that we often deny the gospel in the name of defending it, and don’t take offense when we should be outraged. When Christians argue in court that the Ten Commandments should be allowed on a courthouse square because it serves a secular purpose, this is in essence to secularize the sacred. Our desire to assert “our rights” leads us to complain about minutia and make hypocrites out of our neighbors. Watch the complaints again this season that will arise because stores use the term holidays instead of Christmas. Who cares? Has the word Christmas on a sign in a shopping mall ever saved anybody? Has our gospel witness been reduced to a single pair of words in an ad for Barbie Dolls, GI Joe’s, and LEGOS: “Merry Christmas.”

I fear there is a famine of the Word of God in our churches, and the gap is being filled with the rants of atheists, and yet we don’t even see the difference between the Word of God and the words of Satan.  We are starving and blind.

Revelation 3:17  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

 

 


[1] For example, the Bible condemns sexual perversion and the violence of wicked men. The complaint of the atheist is disingenuous.  He is like the child molester who complains that the indictment charging him with a crime is too explicit.

[2] I had to censor this for its use of mild profanity, sadly all in the name of defending the Bible.

  1. Thanks for the article, which was in my Google News feed. I hadn’t know about this until you promoted the book. I’m ordering several copies today to give as Christmas gifts. And thanks for the tip about Sam’s Club taking the Brick Bible of their shelves. I was planning on going in the next day or two, but now I’ll go get a Costco membership instead, even though it’s not in a very convenient location.

    Seriously though, I do see how the Brick Bible has led to harm. Obviously, Pat Robertson read the passage, “Conspire with a loved one to deceive an elderly family member, and you too will be walking in the righteous path of the Lord.” before pronouncing that it’s OK to seek a divorce if your spouse is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s.

    I find it very interesting that you never once mention a parent’s responsibility to know what is inside of books (or movies, games,etc.) that they buy for their children. Perhaps many Christian parents have never heard, “Don’t judge a book by its cover” which, in this case, can be taken literally. However, they should know, from their own experience, that the innocuous, plain, black cover of a Bible is not at all indicative of the brutal God-blessed (and incited) incest, adultery, murder, deception, and other mayhem which takes place inside.

    1. Your point of view might have been included due to the limitations of time and space and the necessity to focus his article. At worst, Shedlock’s omission and Robertson’s error do not legitimize this book.

      But you probably knew that. You were probably just being snarky.

      1. Yes, I was being snarky; it’s difficult not to be sarcastic in the face of such a non-controversy. However, on the other hand, I also was dead serious about everything I wrote.

        If you’re talking about my point of view that parents be more selective about what their children read, then yes, the author should have focused on personal responsibility; the people who complained about Sam’s Club selling the book should look into the mirror more often, and the decision that Sam’s Club made to pull the book was misguided and reactionary. I’m going to make at least one more trip to Sam’s and see which books they *are* selling.

  2. The content is lifted directly from the bible, and is  -so far as I know – unaltered.
    (you may consider it an ateration that the bible did not deal with lego people)

    1. All your post proves is that many atheists will continue to lie about the content of the Bible and Smith’s version of it.

    2. Some of it is distorted, but it’s mostly tongue-in-cheek. The conciseness of the illustrations demands some excisions. In any event, blasphemy is a victimless crime.

      1. There was no reason to remove the Apostle’s statement that Ananias and Sapphira could do what they want with their own money unless you want to portray the Bible in a way that is false.  It illustrates Smith’s mindset throughout.

      2. Yeah, and the “Sin of Onan” was really just abrogating one’s responsibility to community standards and not masturbation. Go fix that prooftext in fellow Christians before talking to an atheist who is having a laugh at the Bible. One is blasphemy which harms no one (a crime against an all-powerful god seems like a nonsensical idea to me), and the other instance instills guilt into people. Take the speck out of your own eye. Don’t even get started about Christian culture mangling the Quran (though honestly, it seems mangled in its natural condition).

    3. “so far as I know”

      Right, it is only as far as you know.  It is altered in many respects, which I have delineated above.

  3. You’re correct in labelling Brendon Smith an atheist, but you are wrong when you claim his Brick Bible is a distortion of the bible.  It’s not.  Brendon’s motive is not deception, but rather illustration of the stories in the bible to “show” their modern absurdity.  Keep in mind that these values were not absurd to the people who wrote of them in times long ago.  But believers today view these things thru a mental filter of modernity. 

    Which is why we atheists say, “the surest way to lose one’s faith is the read the bible like any other book.”

    1. They are not absurd at all.  They are only absurd as Smith presented them. For example, his title in the one story is misleading “Communism or Death”. He deliberately left out the verse where the apostles told Ananias that he had the option of keeping all the profits for himself.  That is a distortion, no two ways about it.

      “we atheists say”

      I didn’t know they were a monolithic group in what they say.  Is there an atheist Bible somewhere we can read authoritatively what disbelief believes?

      “the surest way to lose one’s faith is the read the bible like any other book.”

      If you read it like any other book you never did have faith.

      1. No, that word is actually “Ignorant”.  The best phrase to describe this word is: “faith in Macro-evolution” or a better fitting one, “Denying the Lord Jesus Christ”.

      2. David, 

        You seem to have missed in the news stories that the content of the book being discussed is different from the content of the web site. I challenge you to find content in the book that you find offensive. Can you point to it directly? I doubt you can.When you look at the book itself, you will find that the book is presented quite differently from the web site. Gone are the author’s choice of words for titles for the images, and gone are the humorous chat and thought bubbles added by the author. Instead, in this book the author chose to tell the stories very straight. The text in the book is ONLY straight up scripture verse.  And the images that on the web site represent the sex scenes in the bible? These are not even included in the book. They are omitted or replaced with fairly tame illustrations such as holding hands.

        What has bothered me most about this situation is that it appears the book was pulled from Sam’s Club due to complaints about the author’s other work and the fact that he an atheist. This is especially a shame given how many deeply religious folks have used this work to help engage and educate people, kids and adults alike. Really disappointing that atheists and religious folks alike are deprived of the opportunity to actually read the bible in a way that engages them like no other has before, due to complaints from people who haven’t actually examined what they’re complaining about. I’ve been following this story closely as I’m a big fan of both The Brick Testament and The Brick Bible, and I haven’t yet seen someone make a complaint about the content of the book itself!

      3. UMMmmmmm, I didnt need any “challenge” to find scoffing mockery from this athiest’s particular publishing.  Here is my initial finding of extremely mocking and “offensive” content:  (and I found it in less than 10 seconds of opening the book! :  The lego figure Jehovah or ‘God’ is depicted with a seriously ANGRY FACE and WRATHFUL expression in every single illustration and page that has God shown in this book!  I didn’t even go to Seminary or Bible College to figure this one out.  I just opened the first page in Barnes&Noble and KNEW that God should not have been angry in that illustration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  You MUST be very ignorant to the fact that ATHIESTS across the board (MAINLY aggresively SCOFFING and MOCKING athiests) argue that God is a WRATHFILLED BEING in general, very cruel and unjust.  The aggresive scoffers prey on the children and teach that God is unfair and sadistic.  I think YOU are the ignorant one.  David is extremely talented and godly wise. 

      4. No offense but Old testament God was pretty wrathy. Floods, plagues, striking down people, destroying whole cities, etc. God seems to be having a rather PMS moment in the old testament. 

      5. Oh ok so if say someone were to rape and kill your children when they were teenager but didn’t do it after then it’s ok? Are you insane! If he did it once he should be calle don it but no god gets a free pass for the raping and killing etc. what fools lol.

      6. Unless you count the tsunami’s, earthquakes and hurricanes. Nice try though. Seems your god is still causing all kinds of nasty stuff.

      7. Is God portrayed as resting in a hammock in the book?
        Are Jonathan and David portrayed as homosexuals in the book?
        How many stories in his book show God as merciful to rebellious sinners?
        Is Cain’s mark implied to be a racist symbol?
        Does it show a small ark and huge animals that could not possibly fit in the ark?

        Being religious and engaging does not equate to truth.  Mr. Smith has no desire to do that.

  4. I enjoyed your article. However, it seems inappropriate to review the content of the author’s website while making points about the book. The content in the book is formatted differently and presented differently. Please review the book itself, you may be surprised!

    1. @f5c9b9c95481ffa2121a64000682f832:disqus , thanks for posting on Caffeinated Thoughts. The only differences between the book and the online version is that the offensive graphics depicting sexual relations has been removed, otherwise there is no difference in tine, approach, and distortions thereof. Unless you want to make the claim that Smith got converted between the time the two were published.

  5. LOL this is great. The christians are too dumb to realize their ridiculous “faith” is being made fun of. It is worth noting that the bible really does promote, r ape, racism, m urder, i ncest, and g enocide to name a few.

      1. Actually since so many idiots believe that the bible is a book of morals and some god’s word than when it talks about r ape, i ncest, murder etc it is promoting them. The god of the bible has no problem asking his followers to r ape, m urder, etc. So if he is asking his people to do these things it follows that anyone who takes the stupid story as legitimate would think these things are ok, hence the bible DOES support a multitude of horrors to be committed on non-believers.

      2. “it follows that anyone who takes the stupid story as legitimate would think these things are ok”

        Except it doesn’t actually follow does it?  Do you see Christians today promoting that Rape and murder are okay?

      3. That’s the point! These people say their book of myths is good when really their is alot to deplore in it. The book in the articles is showing people (with some humor) the truly horrifying reality of the bible. So if they say it promotes kindness but not rape they are laying to themselves. Furthermore the argument about people not applying that to their lives shows that the bible is really NOT the word of some sky daddy since they only choose the parts that fit what they already think. If some of it true then it all must be true, if some of it is wrong it ALL must be wrong. You can’t cherry pick the passages you want and hide the rest because they are disgusting, gruesome and appalling.

      4. Velesot, you are a guest on this blog, try not to be so offensive to other guests. You made a claim, it is not up to the other fella to bring the evidence.

      5. Once from Anon and here you go again in case you don’t see his ( I copied it form him, credit given where due).

         Deuteronomy 22:28-29 :   If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father.  Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.

        Deuteronomy 22:23-24:If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

        Exodus 21:7-11:    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.  If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.  But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her.  And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter.  If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife.  If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.

        Even Jesus weighs in! 1 Timothy 6:1-2: Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed.  If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful.  You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts.  Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.

      6. Unlike you, I have actually read the bible and it does. Don’t believe me, read it for yourself. 
        Deuteronomy 22:28-29 :   If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father.  Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.

        Deuteronomy 22:23-24:If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

        Exodus 21:7-11:    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.  If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.  But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her.  And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter.  If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife.  If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.

        Even Jesus weighs in! 1 Timothy 6:1-2: Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed.  If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful.  You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts.  Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them. 

      7. In fact I’m going to copy and paste so these others don’t keep using the fact that I haven’t responded as a excuse to say the bible is a happy book!

      8. Nice try, Anon.  You have used the new living translation in your first two examples, and left out the verses in between.  The first case is not referring to rape at all, but the taking of a virgin into bed prior to marriage, that is the violation of her, not rape. The second case is case law is simply given as an example of the evidence used in cases of accused rape, which you well know is difficult to prove in a court of law. 

          If you had not chosen to leave out verses 25 and 26 you would see that the penalty for rape is the death penalty, so, in fact, the Bible has a much stronger penalty for rape than modern America:Look at this:25 But if a man find a betrotheddamsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die : 26 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter:

      9. Yes but still the whole selling your daughter as a sex slave seems to be rather immoral, as is the whole slavery thing in general.
        Or how about this lovely little gem
        Numbers 31:17-18:Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourself every girl who has never slept with a man
        Or how in Leviticus 19, where you can be stoned to death for:
        1. Wearing a shirt made of two different materials
        2. Planting a field with two different seeds
        3. Mating two different animals (So labradoodles are out)
        4. Tattoos
        5. Cutting the hair on the side of your head
        etc.

      10. Yes but, two down and one to go…

        Oh, and I see you added some new ones to see if you can get one to stick.  You are not telling the truth about the Leviticus 19 passage are you, Anon?  None of the things you listed make you subject to the death penalty, do they?  But you knew that, but just wanted to get your lie out there, sooner rather than later;

        I see why you are anonymous, I’d be ashamed to put my name on these posts, too.

      11. Anon is right actually. Go look it up. The same part of Lev. in the bible that condemns homosexuality also list those offenses punishable by death (stoning) that Anon listed. Just because you don’t like the fact that your god is a mass murderer unlike any other to have existed (god doesn’t really exist just fyi) doesn’t mean Anon is wrong.

  6. “I fear there is a famine of the Word of God in our churches, and the gap is being filled with the rants of atheists, and yet we don’t even see the difference between the Word of God and the words of Satan.  We are starving and blind.”The gap exists because people are wising up to the fact that the Bible contains a lot of really immoral stuff. We know that incest and rape is wrong, but King David pardons his son Amnon for raping his sister Tamar (2 Samuel 13:21). Moral people recognize that if King David really loved his son, he would condemn his son’s actions. Brendon Smith wants to expose this kind of immorality. To echo Vynn, Brendon doesn’t have to distort the Bible to attack it. It’s all right there, in plain view, and the only reason Christians believe the Bible is because they’ve gone their whole lives without reading significant portions of it, probably because they think it’s boring. The Brick Bible is a great way to show people with short attention spans what the Bible actually says, and wake people up from the deulsion that it’s all hunky dory.

    1. I encourage people to read the Bible for themselves.  They will quickly see the lies such as yourself are willing to tell.

      2 Samuel 13:21: “But when king David heard of all these things, he was very wroth”
      If David pardoned Amnon for the rape, I sure don’t see it here?   To what are you referring? 

      1. No reply from the Velesot 365 I suppose.  Like the Bible says: “He that answereth a matter before he hearethit, it is folly and shame unto him.” it, it is folly and shame unto him.” Proverbs 18:13 KJV   What wise person comments so confidently and aggresively on a book they have never read?  And if he read it, then he is lacking in the comprehension area for sure.  Unless he just skim reads his literature for fun.  When commenting on facts and accusing a general populous of ignorance, how about actually citing, you know with at least ONE reference??!!  I suggest a more scrupulous and diligent reading of the stories of Babel, the world-wide-flood account, the Isrealite wars, with an emphasised look at the HEART of God as David is bringing to attention here!  The truth is told in scripture plainly.  But there are still those who will be “willingly ignorant” even after reading the truth, sadly enough.  Becasue God wishes that no man will persish but come to the knowledge of the truth.  The truth is that God LOVES, He is LOVE, and that heaven is a place of ecstacy.  And the lake of fire a reality.  And our freewill design blesses us to CHOOSE.  Life is NOT a game! 

      2. Any god that truly loves us would for no reason sentence us to eternity in hell. It doesn’t make any sense! That would be like someone’s parents torturing them for knocking over a glass of milk! Not very loving parents, not a loving god.

      3. I never said he loves you.  If God loves you he won’t send you to hell.  If you are his child, you will not go to eternal torture. He sends rebels who cannot and will not repent to hell. There could be no justice without crimes being punished.

      4. Actually, the only unpardonable sin is speaking ill of the holy spirit (Which sounds rather childish.). Think about it, rape, murder, child molestation, all forgivable. Calling God a stupid head, eternal damnation without possibility of parole. 

  7. I don’t get it –  why are so many Christians against an illustrated Bible?  I’ve seen this book and it takes passages straight out of scripture and illustrates them with Lego dioramas.  Maybe Christians don’t like the humour of Lego crossed with the murder, misogyny, rape, etc.of the Bible?

  8. In the words of Heinrich Heine: “Das war ein Vorspiel nur, dort wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.” (That was but a prelude; where they burn books, they will ultimately burn people also.)

    1. Another anon hit and run post, but I’ll respond ’cause I am in a good mood.

      None of Smith’s books were burned were they?   I think Christians have a lot of experience with being burned along with their Book, don’t you?

      1. A book was removed from sale purely due to it’s content. That is censorship regardless of your opinions on the content. He has as much right to sell his book as someone else does to sell a translation of the bible.

      2. Umm, do you know what censorship means right? Censorship is removing something based on the content simply because you dislike what it says

  9. Irony….ya gotta love it. How to make Theists act even stupider without even trying.
    Seriously….grow up, you are an embarrassment to all rational humans

  10. Go check your bible because you just fired a lovely foot bullet.  Seriously, have you actually read the bible? I know I have.
    Go ahead, go get your bible, turn to Leviticus 19 and then give it a read through. Now, tell me if it doesn’t say you can be stoned to death for doing yard work on the sabbath, talking back to your parents, etc.

  11. I think the main reason David here is so angry is because he is finding out for the first time that the bible is full of some rather immoral and evil stuff.
