The Bible is clear.
God hates figs. Liberal Christians may want to sugar coat the truth, but don’t you be fooled. God especially hates Fig Newtons-since they contain both figs and the name of one of the founders of modern science.
So that you don’t need to subject yourself to Bible Gateway:
12 Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. 13 And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.”
And His disciples heard it.
And in the tradition of one Apostle blatantly plagiarizing from another, Matthew 21:18-20:
18 Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. 19 And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away.
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?”
17 thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will send on them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like rotten figs that cannot be eaten, they are so bad.
Some guy wrote it…..I believe it……….that settles it. God hates figs.
