Bible verse of the day #3

ID-100146182

This verse is Deuteronomy 21:18-21

“If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.”

Just as well the religious extremists have an excuse so that they don’t have to follow Old Testament laws, otherwise most of them would be in prison for stoning their children, and especially for stoning people who work on the Sabbath.

This is what life was like back in Biblical times, and God and Jesus never once condemned it. In fact, Jesus said that he had come to fulfill the laws, not abolish them. Christians still take moral guidelines from this book, so we’d all better watch out!
