Moses needs some good PR

Numbers 15: 32-36:

32 While the Israelites were in the wilderness, a man was found gathering wood on the Sabbath day.33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly, 34and they kept him in custody, because it was not clear what should be done to him. 35 Then the LORD said to Moses, “The man must die. The whole assembly must stone him outside the camp.” 36So the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned him to death, as the LORD commanded Moses.

That whole killing somebody over picking up sticks kinda dampens the whole “God is the same yesterday, today and forever,” motif, doesn’t it?


One thought on “Moses needs some good PR

  1. You’re just being a jerk! You’re taking the verse out of context. Those were Holy Sticks™ and there is a rule about who can pick up Holy Sticks™ so the guy had it coming. Who are we to understand the ways of god…..Ah, who am I kidding. This kind of shit is indefensible! I don’t know how anyone can be an apologist to this kind of nonsense!
