Letter about continuing the conversation of the Bible as “God’s Word”...

Mon, May 4th, 2015
Posted in Ostrander Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Continuing the conversation of the Bible as “God’s Word,” Craig Earley’s recent letter seeks to justify God’s killing of humans for their “wickedness”.

Let’s imagine our nation deciding to use the “Word of God” as the authority for our system of law and punishment. Thus, we might first follow Exodus 31: 12-15. Thereby we would execute all those who have ever worked on the Sabbath. We would be left with a nation of mostly children. Any remaining humans who had ever had sexual relations outside of marriage, in most cases, would next be executed (Deuteronomy 22: 13-24). If some were still alive who had ever cursed their parents, then they would be killed (Leviticus 20: 9).

The “Word of God” quickly turns into a Holocaustal death spiral. Amazingly, Sharia Law seems tame in comparison. While the Bible is an awesome and interesting work, I think most would agree that sometimes “God’s Word” needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
