The burial site of the father of both remains a flashpoint between Jews and Muslims.
Ever notice how evangelists and other extreme ”Christian” groups defend their support of Donald Trump by comparing him to the Jewish king David from the Old Testament. Their argument goes that King David was a fallable sinner, like Trump is, but God use David to advance His glory. What they always forget to mention that both he and the people of Israel were punished for his sins. Sorry, people, but I’m not too keen on getting a plague because of. Trump!
In researching ”I’m God and You’re Not”, I came across and read a number of the books mentioned in this article. They are fascinating reading, and give you an excellent insight into the various religious ideas and stories that were circulating in both the Jewish and Catholic religious communities of the times.
One of the disadvantages of being God is that you wind up getting blamed for things you didn’t have anything to do with (like sending floods to show my divine wrath), and then you get thanked for doing things that no self-respecting God would have any part of.
Let’s get this straight. Stop saying that I had anything to do with your elections, who the candidates were, and more importantly don’t say I sent the winner to you. I mean, look–just look at who you have running your countries! Do you think I’m out of my ever-loving mind?! You people claim you follow me, that you are good Christians, Jews, what-ever, and then you go out of your way to elect idiots who do everything in their power to betray what I stand for.
And further more, those kings and queens and such do NOT rule by any divine right. They are just ordinary people who’s ancestors managed to pillage and rape enough to become powerful enough to do whatever the hell (and I do mean, hell) they wanted.
So, please, especially you Americans, cut it out! I hate getting political about this, but don’t blame me for that person in the White House. You did that by yourself, rightly or wrongly.
Though if I were you, I’d be praying that I have mercy on your poor souls.
Because they know what the writers really, truly meant. This is funny, sad, and troubling at the same time.
No wonder religions today rarely reflect what their founders actually preached!
Maybe God was trying to tell them something by sending the storms!!!!!
