|Curses!!!! A Pox on your House!|
|And now, a charming list of curses, threats, and hexes cited from Deuteronomy against those who dare to disobey the megalomaniacal patriarchy. Again, I encourage you to look them up and confirm them for yourselves:
28:26 Your carcass shall be animal food.
28:27 Boils, hemorrhoids, incurable leprosy, and miscellaneous itches (the pox on your house!)
28:28 You shall be smited with madness, and blindness and dumbness of heart (so this is what happened to humanity).
28:29 Oppression for you.
28:30 Your wife raped.
28:32 Your children stolen.
28:37 You shall become a horror, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations where the lord shall drive you (yeah, and a cliche').
28:39 You'll work real hard on a vineyard but never get to drink the wine because the worms will beat you to it. (Now, that really does seem harsh- God goes too far, here!)
But just in case the ruined wine threat isn't enough to curb your misbehavior:
28:53 You shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and daughters! (Now, is this curse really civilized?!)
And finally, in case you weren't intimidated into compliance by all the sick, perverse curses we could think up, (and they were many), be advised that there are even worse contingencies that we haven't even mentioned:
28:61 Also, all kinds of sickness and all plagues which are not written in this book...etc, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah.... AD NAUSEAM!!!!!
Reading the Men's Bible Book of Deuteronomy compels one to ruminate that Yahweh must surely have been in the throes of some sort of paranoid paroxysm.
|Moses kisses his cousin.|
|Finally forced to face his own mortality, Moses designated the sufficiently tight-assed Joshua as his successor. Of course, the claim was made that Yahweh sanctioned the mantle-passing, but the selection might have had more to do with putting a respectable face on the fact that Moses didn't have any heirs left because he had murdered them all. Guess the second family scheme with Yuntu didn't work out the way the old geezer planned.
Moses joined his dead ancestors at last, and I'll wager he didn't get a very warm reception!
Deuteronomy 34:10 tells us: "And there arose not a prophet since in Israel, like Moses."
AND THANK GOD FOR THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
