SOUP TO NUTS: Goofy Church Sign!!
The church near our house has put up another Goofy Church Sign! It's been a long dry spell since they fired the person who was the original "Keeper of the Most Holy Sign". He put up some real beauties. I miss him. (See past post on Goofy Church Signs) The new person actually put up signs that weren't outrageous or hateful. But.....patience is a virtue. I knew they wouldn't let me down.
So let's see, God is good all the time???
Here's a few examples of when he's not.
Numbers 31:15-18 (NIV)
15"Have you allowed all the women to live?" he asked them. 16 "They were the ones who followed Balaam's advice and enticed the Israelites to be unfaithful to the Lord in the Peor incident, so that a plague struck the Lord's people. 17 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, 18 but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
1 Samuel 15:3 (NIV)
3 Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 (NIV)
28 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, 29 he shall pay her father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.
And one of my personal favorites:
2 Chronicles 15:13 (NIV)
13 All who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, were to be put to death, whether small or great, man or woman.
I think this church sign is fucked up like a soup sandwich!!
