    If Your Brother Dies, You Need to Bang His Wife

    "Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother." (Mark 12:19)

      I thought that was a joke, but it's real! This is interesting as well:

        The hits just keep on coming...

        A Woman's Punishment For Defending Her Husband = Cut Off Her Hand

        "When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets: Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her." (Deuteronomy 25:11-12)

        Okay this one is insanely specific, which makes it that much more awesome. This probably NEVER happens... but if a faithful wife decided to defend her husband by grabbing a guy by his junk, anyone, would have God's blessing to cut her hand off.

        How to Use:
        Alright, so in the extremely rare case that you might witness something like this happening and you know everyone involved is a devout Christian, then politely recommend the woman's hand be cut off - just to save her (and them) from an eternity of Hellfire.

    The Abrahamic religions and sects remind me feudal Ja.pan. The various Shogunates battled with each other for resources and power, bloody battles. ISIS is an uprising within a clan challenging the Shogun with brutal means.

    If a foreign power invaded Ja.pan, the Shoguns would immediately unite and die in honor for each other to repel the invader. Once accomplished, they would go back to killing each other. Atheists are the 'invaders' that unites the Abrahamic 'Shogunates'.

    For some reason, many religious people prefer others that renounce their God for another God over others that just don't believe in any God. Go figure. Maybe it lessens their insecurity. If someone believes in an imaginary being (the wrong God), that somehow justifies their own belief in their God.

        Austin.. problem is that other religions say you pervert the way of god.. and neither of you are able to prove that you have the correct version or even the correct god.. hence conflict either verbally, or physically as with the ISIS plague . This is the view that as an Atheist i see.

        August 30, 2014 at 11:50 am |
        • austin929

          understandably man. and for the sake of atheism, that's the way it should be. We need to keep our definitions and their value pure.

        • evolveddna

          Austin. If I understand your last comment correctly.... definitions of god abound I think but they are not valid to any other adherent of another believe system as no evidence backs any of it up.. God is a false, or at best unproven premise and so any definition can be ascribed to suit a particular situation .

          Apologies if i misunderstood your context.

      If all of the currently accessible gods are imaginary, competition among believers can only impede belief in the One True God, should someone come upon it.

        Interesting point Tom. The same is true in human paradigms of knowledge, e.g. new scientific models are usually resisted for some time while people cling to the established models. Human nature I suppose. Of course in the case of God, there may not be any, while scientific models exist with proven predictive capability.

    Regarding the Amelikites, whose genocide is defended by bible worshippers as being God's will, why is it less likely that Samuel, on his own, decided they should be dealt with by complete destruction? The God story provides a convenient out for people who can't face up to the true nature of the semitic tribes and their "prophets".

      I agree. When I read of this sort of brutality, I can't even recognize a shared humanity. That one fellow woke up that one day and said to himself, "Today can best be spent lopping off that guy's head. I'd best get to it." Sometimes it is embarrassing to be human.

      The RCC deserves such commentary but keep the following in mind:

      FEAR, SHAME and GUILT and COVER IT ALL UP, a standard response across the board with the "walking with god clerics" now forever walking with the common man–

      Obviously ordination in any religion is not assurance of good behavior !!!!!

      Neither is coronation!!! e.g. Henry VIII, King David.

      Neither is marriage as 50% of those men convicted of pedophilia are married.

      Neither is being elected president of the USA!! e.g. Billy "I did not have se-x with that girl" Clinton, John "Marilyn Monroe" Kennedy".

      Neither is possessing super athletic skill!!! e.g. Tiger "I am so sorry for getting caught" Woods.

      Neither is being an atheist or pagan or football coach since pedophilia is present in all walks of life.

      If someone is guilty of a crime in this litany of "neithers" they should or should have been penalized as the law dictates to include jail terms for pedophiliacs (priests, rabbis, evangelicals, boy scout leaders, married men/women, football coaches), divorce for adultery (Clinton, Kennedy, Woods), jail terms for obstruction of justice (Paterno et al Clinton, Cardinal Law) or child endangerment (Paterno in abstentia, Sandusky et al, Lynn) and the death penalty or life in prison for murder ("Kings David and Henry VIII).

    Islam targets all non-believers, not just the Pope, as dictated by Mohammed in his book of terror and horror aka the Koran:

    o "Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends." (Surah 5:51)
    "Believers, when you encounter the infidels on the march, do not turn your backs to them in flight. If anyone on that day turns his back to them, except it be for tactical reasons...he shall incur the wrath of God and Hell shall be his home..." (Surah 8:12-)

    "Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God's religion shall reign supreme." (Surah 8:36-)

    "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12-)

    "Fight against such as those to whom the Scriptures were given [Jews and Christians]...until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued." (Surah 9:29-)

    "It is He who has sent forth His apostle with guidance and the true Faith [Islam] to make it triumphant over all religions, however much the idolaters [non-Muslims] may dislike it." (Surah 9:31-)

    "If you do not fight, He will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men." (Surah 9:37-)

    "Prophet make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home." (Surah 9:73)

    "Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them." (Surah 9:121-)

    "Say: 'Praise be to God who has never begotten a son; who has no partner in His Kingdom..." (Surah 17:111)

    "'How shall I bear a child,' she [Mary] answered, 'when I am a virgin...?' 'Such is the will of the Lord,' he replied. 'That is no difficult thing for Him...God forbid that He [God[ Himself should beget a son!...Those who say: 'The Lord of Mercy has begotten a son,' preach a monstrous falsehood..." (Surah 19:12-, 29-, 88)

    "Fight for the cause of God with the devotion due to Him...He has given you the name of Muslims..." (Surah 22:78-)

    "Blessed are the believers...who restrain their carnal desires (except with their wives and slave-girls, for these are lawful to them)...These are the heirs of Paradise..." (Surah 23:1-5-)

    "Muhammad is God's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another." (Surah 48:29)

    "Shall the reward of goodness be anything but good?...Dark-eyed virgins sheltered in their tents...They shall recline on green cushions and fine carpets...Blessed be the name of your Lord..." (Surah 55:52-66-)

    Quran (8:12) – "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

    Quran (9:5) – "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."

    Let's see, ISIS is killing hundreds if not thousands of Sunnis, Shiites, Christians, Yazidis, and anyone else that doesn't fit their mold. A third hand hearsay report comes out that they are after the Pope and that gets the attention. People are so easily distracted by the "shiny object over here".

    ISIS has no benefit going after the Pope. This makes no sense. They have a (demented) mission to accomplish and they have been very focused up until now. I doubt they would make such a incoherent move.

    What makes more sense to me is that Israel is spreading this story as part of their campaign to tie Hamas to ISIS and tie that to Christian fear. It will probably work.

          It's amazing how 2 people can take the same set of data and come to completely different conclusions.

          I believe we did create ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Taliban – we did it by training and equipping them to fight those we found less desirable at the time (insurgents, russians, iranians, etc.). And then, we abandoned them. And we we wonder why they're so PO'd.

          But your claim of "spiritual warfare" is... interesting. Do you have any data to back this up or was it revealed?

      Bostontola, ......why would ISIS want to attack our south border when we are having internal quarrels about shutting it down. do you think they want to attack the border?

      NO WAY does ISIS want to attack the south border.

      there is soooooooo much disinformation out there. like the link I posted above, they are trying to say Al Bagdadi is an Israeli op, and that ISIS is formed by these to shells from Israel and the USA, both shells have the name ISIS in real life and they are covert military private shells. or to that effect.

      but this type of disinformation could also be a satanic ploy, and this is real right here.

      if you place yourself as an enemy of Israel you will be cursed. I too am interested in the what if's but with 13 mil Jewish people in the world and 6 mil in the state of Israel, id just always stear clear out of being an enemy of Israel.............even while they are head deep in sin. We should exhort them and not write them off. They aren't obeying the NT and so they are going to be projecting idolatrous error.......that will never be what people want.

        "but this type of disinformation could also be a satanic ploy, and this is real right here"

        Odd, you speculate it is the work of satan, yet you can't see it in your bible?

        think about it. If there were a satan, wouldn't hiding your agenda in religion be the perfect scam...and doesn't the history of christianity bear out the chaos, destruction and wars that satan wants?
        It seems extremely likely your satan inspired or wrote your book, and you are his willing pawn.

          igaftr, you make many very good and intuitive points. I try to be obedient to the word, because my knowledge of it doesn't always make decisions for me, but I have the word to abide in and that's my goal.

          hows it going? do you watch college football?

        • igaftr

          yes, you calim to try to abide by the word, but you have no idea if satan was invloved, if any gods were invloved, or if it is all simply made up by men ( most likely the latter)...so all you are trying to do, is choosing some random thing that you have convinced yourself is worth pursuing....the very definition of blind faith.

          I strongly suggest you get some non-religious mental health support....seriously.

          "It seems extremely likely your satan inspired or wrote your book, and you are his willing pawn."

          I've often wondered (if it were all real) if it wasn't Satan that appeared to Paul (who was "blameless before the law") and turned one of the most righteous men of his age into a tool that has ensured that almost the entire world has turned away from the true religion of Judaism? To me, this would be the one of the greatest triumphs a deceiver could achieve... and because of free will, God has chosen not to interfere. For as we know, the path is narrow and there are far fewer Jews these days...

          August 30, 2014 at 11:35 am |
        • igaftr

          exactly G to the T
          They claim god inspired the bible, but considering the violent destructive history of the religion, it seems far more likely that, if any suopernatural influence was invloved, it would be satan.

          Just review the history, the chaos of interpretation ( 40, 000 sects and growing)...it all makes more sense if you look at it from the point of view that satan is working.

          It makes even more sense that men made up the whole thing once you realize there is no evidence of any supernatural anything, but if you believe the supernatural is at work, the bible appears to be a work of satan.

      Revelation 20:3 ►

      He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.

      Israel is going to be persecuted. I don't think they are deceiving people any more than the united states is.
      but who controls the media.

      I am discouraged lately because of all the disinformation coming out in the last few months its getting out of hand. Like why would ISIS attack the border, when the conservatives have been griping about it?

      The insane Catholic "Sede Vacantists" (who claim the chair of Peter is empty, and has been since John XXIII) love to say Francis is an "anti-christ". The trouble is he's actually more Christian than most any pope ever. Instead of a Medieval Monarch with his court of princes, he actually acts like a bishop, instead of being carried around on a throne, fanned by Egyptian plumes.

        but I don't necessarly think that the pope is THE false prophet or antichrist.

        I have seen other fundamental churches that make an idol out of error as well.

        such as the incorrect doctrine on Ishmael, this is bigotry and I am surrounded by fundamental elderly white biggots and war mongers.

        and the pope............I like him a lot, but not Catholicism , yet his character is more important. the pope did call for war against ISIS though, and if ISIS is a cia invention, then the pope should have no separation with catholocism from the fundamental church because they are all

You can go back to the other blog where we were talking about the tsunami i made mention of my testimony about obama. I know without a doubt that pope francis is evil. I will pray for you austin so you are not deceived. Be warned there is a flood of mass deception that is coming upon the world. Even believers who do not love the truth will be overcome and deceived. Many in the faith will and are falling away. The protestant church is right behind the rcc. Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to give you discernment. Fast and pray. Remember when Jesus told peter to pray so he would not fall away at the hour of temptation. All the leaders of the "world" are organizing a one world religion. Pope francis is part of this. I know this all sounds crazy. Its true. The new world order is the reign of the antichrist. Its coming and its here.

          there are many anti christs. There is also a false prophet like you said. So.

          Did you see there is a youtube video with John Macarthur saying the anti Christ is for sure the Madhi?

          its only about 6 minutes long. This is my gut feeling, that as it says "All the nations have drank of the Cup of fornication"

          All the nations have. and I agree that the time is upon us, soon or is. OK but as far as that anti Christ goes, there are more powerful people than Obama, and the Pope. Obama is obviously a Bush CIA invention........He took the reigns of the u.s. as someone selected as a pscyh op, well in advance, to play out the end of Iraq with a different scheme. but it was all the same grand scheme, with Clinton, and Hagel, and John Kerry.

          What sets the pope off, is being such a solidary leader..............and he is out calling for war against ISIS now. when really, ISIS isn't even all that. and besides if they were...........the middle east as a people could handle them if they wanted.

          The Pope has basically bowed down to the deception.........and probably Macarthur too. Because no man of God, entrusted with the gospel as a preacher.............can prophesy and call the church to war, or a nation.

          This is a transgression of the gospel . The participation in the act of death is Anti Christ.

I think there is someone that they are answering to, the elite...........the people talking about the new world order like kissenger..........but higher up.

          time wise, Obama doesn have enough time left to cause any destruction. what if he turned it over to Romney?

          Yes all the nations have drank from the cup. Which is why it is written "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" Revelations 18:4. We are to repent and turn from our sins, turn from this world and have nothing to do with it.

          The madhi is islam's messiah according to the quran. Its the antichrist, the son of perdition in the bible. He has not fully revealed himself yet. Soon to come.
          Satan controls "the world". It would be very easy for his to change laws and allow for continuation of Obama to get another term. Do you realize that it does not matter who you vote for? They the "secret ones" put in who they choose. Its all a lie.

          Bush is involved with skull and bones. He and obama play for the same team. Most, maybe all, of the world leaders do.

          ISIS is about 1/25 as deadly as the US military was. we killed 1,000,000 people. we installed 2 democracies. spent a trillion dollars. and now we left and ISIS is in control now. and they killed about 25,000 people. (I may be wrong but I did look some numbers up)

          but ISIS has 2,000,000 dollars and assets that are raking in money. someone is backing them. This ISIS is not who they appear to be. This may be the surrounding of Israel and a precursor to a nuclear war in the middle east too.

          There is only man to cry over, there were no nephilim, no half demon, half humans roaming the earth ten thousand years ago, the idea is preposterous. We have the remains of humans and of neanderthals going back as far as 70,000 years and none show these supposed giants ruling the earth before a global flood. In fact the geological record proves there was no global flood at all. Might there have been a regional flood where some ancient people complained about the ferocity and violence of the neanderthal people who they were interacting with 20,000-30,000 years ago? Sure, but they were not "giants" and do not fit any of the other depictions of these supposed half breeds.

          "How could God say anything if God does not exist."

          I'm not saying he said it, i'm saying the bible makes that claim. It makes several claims of God telling people to murder other humans. You defend the bible as the actual word of God and so one must assume you believe that your God did tell those followers to behave that way. You make excuses for it claiming junk like "context" and "it was a different time" but none of the excuses can be viewed as valid if you are not already a believer trying to stretch your imagination around it so you can keep your flimsy faith intact.

          The Amalekites were constantly attacking the Hebrew. Like the 8 year old Muslim boy holding the severed head of Christian last week one can only imagine what that boy will grow into. Moses was not perfect he could have been wrong. Perhaps this verse is a warning not to make 5,000 year old hatred get the best of you to where you claim God told me to do it.
          As far as killing others that was the culture and a limit between the two groups. It does not apply to us. God has not directed such since 400 years before Christ. Christ further said love your enemy.

          "Tell me how hang onto the lie of social evolution yet demand believers not experience social evolution?"

          I don't mind your social evolution, I applaud it. However, when the board on the wall still says "If our God tells us to kill anyone, even our own child, we're gonna do it" I remain a skeptic even though the adendum states "but that hasn't happened in a really really long time so we're all good"...

          "Yeah, those damn Amalekites not just turning over their lands and fields that God had promised to the Hebrews."
          =>No, the Amalekites were wicked and opposed to God, they were opposed to the Chosen Ones of God, they also killed and took what ever they wanted from anyone not just the Hebrew.
          =>The story line is basically that God has the right to remove any that would prevent his purpose which was bring the law forward to the day of Christ.
          =>You like Amalek are opposed to the plan of God. Since the plan to bring Christ (the way) to the cross is complete you are part of the generations that are to love their enemy. It is wrong to wipe out those who do not believe and get in the way of salvation as the Spirit of God is available to any that want it.

          "If our God tells us to kill anyone, even our own child, we're gonna do it" I remain a skeptic
          =>Take note it as Saul of Tarsus that was out killing Christians and became Paul when he was confronted by God. This is the post Jesus reality. It was the Priests who out of their evil brutalized Jesus and his followers, it was the Priests who looked for justification to conduct evil via the God told me route. These evil Priests remain as do simply evil people.

          I'm glad your god (the God of the Bible isn't it?) is restrained toward those that oppose it these days. It seems to be content with a lot of evil in the world. Has it mellowed over time?

          "Take note it as Saul of Tarsus that was out killing Christians and became Paul when he was confronted by God. "

          Common mistake. He did not change his name – "Paul" is the greek version of "Saul".

          "It seems to be content with a lot of evil in the world. Has it mellowed over time?"
          =>Setting aside my conversion experience we do have at a minimum a history of the Hebrew revelations of God and their relationship with God. No one has seen God so we assign attributes that fit our concept. If God only exists in the mind of the believer then God is anything and everything the mind can assign. Yet, in the physical we see only the effect of concept expressed through the individual. God funneled through the free will of man is the image of God in man. Collectively this cannot be the true image because each individual has adjusted it even Moses in the attack on Amalek.
          Which human additions would we need to remove in order to see God..............all of them. There is no such thing as nothingness so when we strip away what man has added we arrive at some absolute purity. This is how we are presented before God when we are in Christ. That is the image of God in which we were made. Symbolically Christ on the cross, that bloody pulp reflecting what sin looks like on man died. It is finished sin has no more power than that. Evil has no more power than that which is the stark contrast of purity. Death is all that bloody pulp left behind while life eternal rises in Christ. The resurrection is the light and in the beginning God said let there be light and it was so.
          God simply is and has not mellowed or changed neither has man.

          Fred, you seem to be saying that your God can't be seen on its own. That is a weak god.

          No, it is a testament of the overpowering substance of God. According to the Bible if you see God you die so people only get a peek of some kind.
          Based on personal experience God reveals at a very powerful level that instantly transforms the soul. Saul of Tarsus was blinded by the encounter then began to see the reality of God in Christ. Just as Paul saw miracles I have seen miracles yet a non believer would say it was just an improbable coincidence
          A physical manifestation of God would be a game changer as now everyone would know. All choices would now be limited to the tangible. Faith would not be needed as you could know God in the same way you know 2+2. God is more than that so you could not be limited to physical expression.

        • Tom, Tom, the Other One

          I don't think we mean the same thing by 'faith', fred. It seems you mean by it that your entire relationship with your God must be based on what you believe, not on what's actual. And this is because you could not withstand an actual experience of God. To me faith is simply expecting something reliable to remain so. I would need that actual experience of God.

          "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen". I'd thought this was what you have to go on, Robert. God hedges things for you?

          August 30, 2014 at 5:46 pm |
        • Robert Brown

          Yes, in a way, God hedges things for all believers by bringing them to a point where they see their need for a savior.

          Would you agree, there are things which can't be seen, but can be experienced?

          August 30, 2014 at 10:22 pm |
        • Tom, Tom, the Other One

          Of course, Robert. I did assume that God was the absent Landlord. If God is around and interacting with people frequently and in obvious ways, I'd believe, myself.

          August 30, 2014 at 11:43 pm |
        • Robert Brown

          He is, and does. God wants you to believe. If you think God is a possibility, would you be willing to approach him on his terms?

          If so, go hear the gospel preached this morning. God has ordained this method and you are invited.

          First, you can't even show your god exists, don't know that it is male if it does (why would a single ent!ty need a gender) don't know if it has any "terms", and you don't know if it ordained anything.
          All you have is what MEN said, and they were clearly often wrong.

          If "god" exists, it just might be something that is not even sentient, but in reality, there is no sign of any "god".

          Considering all of that, would YOU be willing to give up your pursuit of myths?

      "They are so sure that 'god' is with them that they can justify mass murder."

      I believe certainty (regardless of its object) can indeed breed this kind of thinking.

        LaBella, good question thank you. And BelieverFred thank you brother, for the observation; that's the common explanation of chuches that have a big empty cross prominently displayed in their sanctuary, and all organizations that use a cross as a symbol.

        The second commandment warns against carved objects and worshipping them. So anything that reduces Christ to an object or a symbol in any way, or something that is a supposed concentration of Him compared to His presence everywhere, is a dangerous restriction and diversion away from the entirety of His Person and His work. Does Christ need a man-made object to work His will and to spur someone to praise Him? Absolutely not.

        At its base level, a cross is nothing but an ancient instrument of execution. So where does a person's heart really go when they view a cross? If the object of a cross causes someone to place undue emphasis on the suffering, death, and even sacrifice and resurrection of Christ, at the expense of contemplation of His eternal divine nature and life of righteousness as a man, His creative power, His unobligated love for His people, and His place as perfect Judge and Ruler of all we know, throw it away. After all, an object is nothing in itself; every object in this universe is bound to fire.

      They keep putting up stories about how the mob is after the pope and now ISIS is after the pope. I think that CNN and the Italian media are just trying to convince the world that the pope is an action hero. It sounds like a bunch of unsubstantiated melodrama to me.

        They have to try to maintain where they're at in Syria. They know they're about to be rushed where they're at now. Obama saying there's no strategy right now is another way of saying that we're methodically planning a quick slaughter of Isis. Rushing only complicates things.
