Shut up already, Angus!
Angus Buchan knows not the Bible if he is able to make idiotic statements such as “give your children a good hiding when they are naughty because the Bible says so”.
There is no Biblical justification for hitting a child!
The God of the Bible is the worst child molester in history, but once one gains sufficient insight to realise that “God” is nothing but a fictional character, the Bible can be enjoyed for what it is – a not completely bad bit of historic literature. For all its flagrant contradictions the Bible at least does not justify corporal punishment.
If Buchan wishes to declare on the Bible, he should familiarise himself with the Canon. If he does not “get it” he should not “speak it”. And he should not rely on some “Holy Spook” to make things clear to him. The Spook’s message is so inconsistent as to be non-existent, judging by the many churches in Protestantism alone. He should put in the effort to study the Bible and not randomly misquote it.
I am sick and tired of this farmer revealing his complete lack of Biblical insight. Bullshit indeed baffles brains. Buchan should go back to growing spuds, boet. Of the Bible and exegesis he knows alarmingly little.
