my favourite bible quotes – part 1

We all have them. Those particular passages from our favourite book that mean something extra special just to us.

Given the size of the Bible and the wealth of interesting verses, I figure this post will a generate a useful series of ‘best bits’.

The pressing concerns of an omniscient, perfect deity revealed:

“If you make me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stones, for if you wield your tool on it you profane it. And do not approach my altar by going up steps. If you do, someone might look up under your clothing and see your nakedness.” (Exodus 20:25-26)

Really? What a petty, uptight superbeing the god God would be (if he existed). But my biggest concern is that Christians can read this, and file it under ‘perfectly reasonable instructions from a deity’ – right next to slaughtering animals to say ‘sorry for being bad’.
