The Finger of Jesus

Who was the first person to see Jesus? You might think it was Mary or Joseph, then maybe the magi, the shepherds, and the little drummer boy. But you'd be wrong. If the Book of Mormon is right, that is. The first person to see Jesus was the bro ...

Jesus

You’ve heard this one before: God killed his son in order to stop himself from torturing people forever after they die for something that someone else supposedly did thousands of years before they were born. The story is known too well already. ...

The great winepress of the wrath of God (How many will Jesus kill with his sickle?)

(Since the Brick Testament just added this story, I thought I'd update this old post by including a scene from and a link to The Son of Man's Bloody Gorefest.) In a previous posts, I counted the number of people killed by God in the Bible (2,301 ...

Remember Lot's Wife (Forget Jesus)

Although this is God's fourth killing event, it is the first of God's 2,552,452 countable victims. It's interesting that God's first countable victim is unnamed. God killed Mrs. Lot without even knowing (or at least telling us) her name. And ...

Happy Jesus-in-Hell Day!

When I was a believer, I was always puzzled by the phrase "He descended into hell" in the Apostles' Creed. It just seemed strange to me. What was a nice guy like Jesus doing in a place like that? But I guess Jesus did some time in hell; it says so ...

So it was Jesus who sent the fiery serpents in Numbers 21!

One of the craziest stories in the Bible is found in Numbers 21. It all happens in just two verses: The people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, ne ...

What does Jesus have written on his testicles?

OK, I'm not sure about this. Jesus might not have anything written on his testicles. But he does have something written on his thigh, at least if you believe the Book of Revelation. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, ...

Who had the most powerful spit: Jesus or Muhammad?

This is an important question. Luckily, the gospels and Ash-Shifa can answer it for us. (Ash-Shifa is a 12th century biography of Muhammad that is considered authoritative throughout the Muslim world.) Let's take Jesus's spit first. ...

No Jesus, the Golden Rule is not equal to the law and the prophets

Jesus said many surprising things in the Sermon on the Mount. Here are just a few of them: Every jot and tittle of the Torah must be followed. (Matthew 5:17) Whoever calls someone a fool is in danger of going to hell. (5:22) A man wh ...

The Trial of the Chicago 7 is a Netflix film based on the trial of seven anti-war protesters who were arrested during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. I very much enjoyed the movie, but I was especially struck by its portrayal of Abbie Hoff ...
