Because reality is beautiful.

God kills

Weird thought:

Did you ever notice some of the things that God thought was worthy of the death penalty? Unjustifiable homicide, adultery, homosexuality, rape, falsely accusing of a capital crime, disrespecting ones parents, etc. There are probably more, but these are all that spring to mind at the moment. You know whats weird about those? They are all relational. And all pertain specifically to relationships that God chose as his examples to those He created in his own image. God compares his relations to man to a parent child relationship and a husband/wife relationship. Those are interesting choices, first of all, because the former must never include sex. The latter is defined by its inclusive sex.

The human behavior that God deems worthy of death is the behavior that through its acts tells a lie about God. The punishment of death is not so much for the harm you have done man, but the slander of God’s character. Very odd, no

Tomorrow, we set the way back machine to 700 BC and explore cultural parallels between pork then and drugs now. You have been warned.

  1. You amuse me greatly and I look forward to our trip back in time tomorrow. I do think it’s interesting how God seems to be most upset by slander to his character. God is an interesting and very big god. I am going to go talk to you now while you polish your boots.
