.... er, wait, the problem is that they DID put it to the test.

"Don't trust religion."

THERE we go.

RE: Priest Poisons Congregation
Have you not heard of the prophet of Doom?

Doom is a brand of insecticide here... This joker decided it had some mystical significance and sprayed his congregation with it. Fuck the media had a field day. It was laugh a minute. At least he didn't kill anyone.

If you wanna see real fucked up shit in the name of religion, Africa's where it's at.

Now hold on -- don't go condemning the poor priest.


If we could get more of them to perform this ritual - we'd have the religion problem solved in a few years..........

Laugh out load

All that said, yes, you would get it as a former Christian and following the slippery slope downhill! And I have, as well, to an extent, from American Baptist to Catholic, based on things like the understanding of John 6 and was Christ using literary device, or was He being literal? Who actually compiled the Bible and still was connected to those people who did? From my own understanding and review of pro and con apologetics, who seems to be closest to what's in the Bible? Etc. Of course, that ignores the much more slippery slope of the fact it begins with a prepositional view that the Bible is true.

Also, that wonderful second paragraph? Something I struggle with, especially doing a once a day Bible reading thing. As Saint Paul says, in 1 Corinthians, God is not the author of confusion, but of peace. But boy does His book get confusing and boring at times. Or the Barna Group is wrong about the whole 40,000+ denominations thing. But somehow doubting that.

(Now, I feel an urge to go hold a crucifix up to Bart Ehrman's work and yell, "Get behind me Satan"...just kidding.)

You seriously need a good Bible Commentary as a companion to the Bible. There's no way you can attempt to understand it on your own. That's another thing to ponder. The Bible is extremely difficult to understand on its own due to all of the cultural and historical references.

The Bible also needed to be translated and retranslated into a variety of different languages after God's meltdown at the Tower of Babel and his whole confounding of languages thing. Why do this if you want people to know you as a magical being and heed your word?

Fair point on historical context and such, and been looking for one, since this is just a day by day Catholic study Bible. And true on the translations and such, though one would have to believe in a literal Tower of Babel for that point to an extent. But also fair enough. My personal favorite oops moment on errors of people who are translating, retranslating, and copying the Bible over the years is the Wicked Bible from the 17th century, where they accidentally said, "Thou shalt commit adultery".

Sorry to sort of divert from non-denom "priest" deciding to poison everyone!

Need to think of a witty signature.

The IVP bible commentaries are really good. Written by scholars and I think one or two of the authors are Christians, but they focus on the facts without woo.

Will look into it, thanks for the recommendation! Thumbsup
