If the Bible is the full and inerrant world of God, you gotta take the good passages you don’t like as well as the ones you do.
Couple of examples. Today, this one.
This billboard caused a lot of fuss in PA. Keep in mind: how controversial can this really be if one of the Ten Commandments includes rules for slavery. Most Ten Commandments tablets you get are sanitized. The full text of the command to rest on the Sabbath is that you, your ass (work animals) and slaves should also rest. From the Jewish translation: ‘you are not to do any kind of work-not you, your son or your daughter, not your male or female slave, not your livestock, and not the foreigner staying with you inside the gates to your property.”
I’m for not for slavery, but clearly the Bible isn’t. And in that context, this billboard is only clarifying slave responsibilities that Jehovah, Yaweh, etc. has no problem with. So what really is the problem with this sign if it’s important that we to hear the word of the Lord? And if this is not one of the words we are supposed to hear, which ones should we be hearing. Just the love and obey words? The no homosexuality words. The how to cook bull semen words. And who gets to decide?
