Contest: Your Favorite Odious Bible Verse
« on: July 31, 2009, 04:10:03 PM »
What with all this smearing of dung on people's faces (Malachi 2:3), I got to wondering about other Bible verses that people consider odious. So I have put up a little contest on my blog. It's free, and it's just for fun--the blog is not supported by advertising or anything, it's just a little something I do to amuse myself from time to time. So here it is:

Codswallop Presents, the Perfect Fool Contest #1: What do you think is the most heinous verse in the Bible?

To enter the contest, just read the blog entry in the link above, and reply in the comments section of the blog. (Be sure to come back here and chat about it later too.) There are even prizes! The winner gets a tin of Messiah Mints, Sin-O-Mints or Atone-Mints. Your choice. (Yes, these are real products, and I really have them.)

whatever people are experiencing when they experience God, it's not something they're perceiving in the external world. It's something their brains are making up.
