There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Many biblical books were deemed so stupid that 1800 imbeciles decided to ban them from the approved bible, in 325AD. The first is “The GOSPEL of the BIRTH OF MARY”.
7 And it came to pass, that when the feast of the dedication drew near, Joachim, with some others of his tribe, went up to Jerusalem, and at that time, Issachar was high-priest;
8 Who, when he saw Joachim along with the rest of his neighbours, bringing his offering, despised both him and his offerings, and asked him,
9 Why he, who had no children, would presume to appear among those who had? Adding, that his offerings could never be acceptable to God, who was
judged by him unworthy to have children; the Scripture having said, Cursed is every one who shall not beget a male in Israel.
- Can we all spend a few moments on the insane reaction of Issachar, the high priest?
- This is another recurring theme in the bible: a male child is always desired. One can understand the position of the church, even in the early days, regarding girls and women. That hasn’t changed.
- The God of the Old Testament is very clear about his feelings for the female side of humanity. They should be raped or sold into slavery. Babies and children should be butchered. Remember Isaac and the first born black babies of Egypt?
