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. Next comes The EPISTLE of IGNATIUS to the MAGNESIANS. (Sit tight, hang on, we are about to discover some major BS.)
1 Commends their faith and piety; exhorts them to persevere; 10 desires their prayers for himself and the church at Antioch.
MAY I therefore have joy of you in all things, if I shall be worthy of it. For though I am bound, yet I am not worthy to be compared to one of you that are at liberty.
2 I know that ye are not puffed up; for ye have Jesus Christ in your hearts.
3 And especially when I commend you, I know that ye are ashamed, as it is written, The just man condemneth himself.
4 Study therefore to be confirmed in the doctrine of our Lord, and of his Apostles; that so whatever ye do, ye may prosper both in body and spirit, in faith and charity, in the Son, and in the Father and in the Holy Spirit: in the beginning, and in the end.
5 Together with your most worthy bishop, and the well-wrought spiritual crown of your presbytery, and your deacons, which are according to God.
6 Be subject to your bishop, and to one another, as Jesus Christ to the Father, according to the flesh: and the Apostles both to Christ, and to the Father, and to the Holy Ghost: that so ye may be united both in body and spirit.
7 Knowing you to be full of God, I have the more briefly exhorted you.
8 Be mindful of me in your prayers, that I may attain unto God, and of the Church that is in Syria, from which I am not worthy to be called.
9 For I stand in need of your joint prayers in God, and of your charity, that the church which is in Syria may be thought worthy to be nourished by your church.
10 The Ephesians from Smyrna salute you, from which place I write unto you: (being present here to the glory of God, in like manner as you are,) who have in all things refreshed me, together with Polycarp, the bishop of the Smyrnæans.
11 The rest of the churches in the honour of Jesus Christ, salute you.
12 Farewell, and be ye strengthened in the concord of God: enjoying his inseparable spirit, which is Jesus Christ.
