Biblical Lessons Grabbed From DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED.

By Doug Giles

One of my favorite TV shows is DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED.

For those not hip to the show, below is the lowdown from their website. Check it out:

In DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED, five of the world’s most elite, thrill-seeking survivalists will find out…

Unprepared and left to fend for yourself, what would you do if you were captured, blindfolded and taken to an unknown, remote location? Viewers are about to find out as these five survivalists must prove they have what it takes week after week as they play this “game” that puts all of their skills to the ultimate test.

Each survivalist has a different background:

Terry Schappert, a Green Beret, A -Team leader, medic, sniper and close combat specialist

John Hudson, an Extreme Survival Instructor for the UK Royal Air Force

Matt Graham, a primitive skills expert and a desert survival instructor

Jake Zweig, a former Navy SEAL, certified in Surface Warfare & as a dive safety officer and helicast master

Tom Moore, a veteran Army Scout, bush craft master and wilderness guide

Each survivalist is captured one at a time by the other four. The capture could take place at work, at home, at a coffee shop, ANYWHERE! They must always be on guard. Then, they are dropped in one of the world’s harshest environments and must make their way back to civilization, alive and unscathed, all within 100 hours, or it’s game over!

Meanwhile, the other four compatriots monitor and scrutinize the target’s progress (and vital signs) from a nearby remote command center. It’s man against nature (and his four “best” friends) as each action-packed, dramatic episode of DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED crisscrosses the globe — from dense jungles to frigid glaciers — to match wits in this game of survival. With reputations and bragging rights on the line, do these guys have what it takes to survive the ultimate challenge?

Here are some biblical lessons I jotted down that were underscored in DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED!

1. This test-from-hell is on purpose. God, like the survivalist’s “friends“, will put us in predicaments that’ll take us to our limits. Please note that the “friends” arranged for the other’s “testing“. God also arranges for our faith to be tested (Jas.1:2-4). We must note this because he will allow life to stretch us like the elastic in Rosie O’Donnell’s massive panties. Ah, what’s the matter? They didn’t tell you that in Sunday School? As this show and the Bible point out, our job is to be prepared when the crap hits the fan.

2. Expect it when you least expect it (1Pet.5:8). Another interesting little ditty drawn from this program was the surprise attack launched upon the unexpected party. The survivalist featured in each of the episodes has to live in an enhanced state of readiness to avoid being captured by his psycho pals. In the “chance” that they do get captured and whisked off to Mount Kill-A-Pussy they need to make do with what they have on hand and the various weird tools and accouterments the captors afford them once they dump them off in the middle of nowhere to fend for themselves. According to Jesus, we too have to be ready at all times because we do not know when the storms, winds and floods are gonna rock our world (Mat.7:24-27).

3. God’s watching and will be there if we crash and burn. God, like these adrenaline junkies, both arranges for our testing and is ever watchful and will be there at a moment’s notice to aid and/or extract us from the adversity should we start tapping out. In, DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED! as much as the other survivalist want to see what the other is made of, they also don’t do it to such an extent that it destroys the one that’s cooking in the crucible. And, according to the Scripture (1Cor.10:13), neither does God.

4. True brotherhood. From a fellowship standpoint, the Special Ops of DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED! want each other to thrive versus die like most small-minded Christians. I’d much prefer hanging around these gents versus a lot of back-stabbing weasel pastors and Christians that I’ve had to “fellowship” with. 1000pts for the true brotherhood depicted on this show (1Cor.12;12-26).

5. We have a reputation to uphold (Rom.8:31-39). These men got through insane obstacles in DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED via wits, willpower and pride. They want to prove, “we have what it takes.” I wish more Christians would be like that when they start going through rough patches.

We need to understand we represent the King of Kings, that he’s given us all things for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3) and that we have what it takes to get over this mountain; and we should be spiritual survivalists as an act of worship in honor of him, the Unconquerable Christ. Uh, earth to church. We do kind of have a reputation of hardiness to uphold, duh.

As far as I’m concerned, this overcomer’s spirit, that’s championed in DUDE, YOU’RE SCREWED!, is much more appealing to me than being a defeated Christian who’s rolled up in the corner of a the room, in the fetal position, sucking his thumb, wearing a big-ass Christian diaper because they had to go over a molehill in the Garden of Eden.

    I love this show…but only Doug Giles could get these lessons from this show. Although, now that you mention it, I see what your talking about.

  • TerrenceInDC

    Typical chest-thumping masculine Christian heresy from the king of all stupid, Doug Giles. I’m sure Jesus would approve of non-sense like Green Berets and survivalist show. Grow up.

      that’s what prophet’s do. They see the Spirit of God in the mi-nute of details. Maybe, we should observe and absorb, instead of being rash in comment.

      • Croco Dile

        The prophets, as described by Inspiration, were a precious set of lazy and worthless vagabonds of Israel, the exact counterpart of the howling dervishes and divination-mongers of their cousin Ishmaelites. They were “seers,” fortune-tellers, and diviners, through pretended dreams and trances, and by the use of sacred dice and arrows, and phallic images of Yahveh.
        The job of a prophet was a free-for-all occupation, which any one who pretended to feel the divine afflatus, or was a fluent liar, could take up at will and without license.
        Jeremiah describes their single qualification : “Every man that is mad [ish meshuggah], and maketh himself a prophet” (Jer. XXIX,26). Hosea also declares the same truth : “The prophet is a fool, the man that hath the spirit is mad [meshuggah]” (Hos. IX,7). Elisha is called “this mad fellow [meshuggah]” (2 Kings IX,11). A thousand instances prove the truth of these candid admissions that the prophets were a rabble of frenzied fakirs.

          Croco, you did not read any of these verses with understanding, please do not say things you have no knowledge of…

          • Croco Dile

            The word “prophet,” as a name for these nomadic conjurers and fortune-tellers, is a late Biblical term; they were originally called – just as the fortune-tellers and trance-mediums of to-day describe themselves in their advertisements – “seers”; people who “see things” in their imaginations, or pretend for pay to see them. Samuel, who well describes the grafting practices of this gentry, testifies to this : “Before-time in Israel, when a man went to enquire of the gods [ha-Elohim], thus he spake, Come, and let us go to the seer [roeh]: for he that is now called a Prophet [Nabi] was beforetime called a Seer [Roeh]” (1 Sam. IX,9). We may note here another sidelight on Bible editorship : as the word “Roeh” (“Seer”) is used throughout the Books of Samuel and elsewhere, it is evident that these books were compiled long afterwards, when “Nabi” (“raver,” hence “prophet”) was the word in current use, so that the original and then obsolete word, “Roeh,” had to be explained.

            a waterless cloud carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.., Jude 1: 13 croc. is a windtalker !

          • Croco Dile

            If I’m a windtalker, then because in some heads is just wind and they are empty, they are unable to comprehend a reasonable thought.

          • fedup

            you are a smart guy, dont get me wrong, just that Theology is a man made tool. We are not to study God, but to obey Him. We get this reasoning thought from eating from the tree of Knowledge of good and evil. Yet we use our reasoning powers to discern His perfect will. for justice and righteousness. Which side are you in sir ? are you a believer of the Bloody Jesus ?

          • Croco Dile

            Jesus is a fictitious charcter invented by corrupt priests for the benefit of the Roman Empire at that time.

            Though the three families had been able to put down the revolt, they still faced a potential threat. Many Jews continued to believe that God would send a Messiah, a son of David, who would lead them against the enemies of Judea. Flavius Josephus records that what had “most elevated” the Sicarii to fight against Rome was their belief that God would send a Messiah to Israel who would lead his faithful to military victory. Though the Flavians, Herods, and Alexanders had ended the Jewish revolt, the families had not destroyed the messianic religion of the Jewish rebels. The families needed to find a way to prevent the Zealots from inspiring future uprisings through their belief in a coming warrior Messiah.

            Then someone from within this circle had an inspiration, one that changed history. The way to tame messianic Judaism would be to simply transform it into a religion that would cooperate with the Roman Empire. To achieve this goal would require a new type of messianic literature. Thus, what we know as the Christian Gospels were created.
            In a convergence unique in history, the Flavians, Herods, and Alexanders brought together the elements necessary for the creation and implementation of Christianity. They had the financial motivation to replace the militaristic religion of the Sicarii, the expertise in Judaism and philosophy necessary to create the Gospels, and the knowledge and bureaucracy required to implement a religion (the Flavians created and maintained a number of religions other than Christianity). Moreover, these families were the absolute rulers over the territories where the first Christian congregations began.

            very impressive history lesson, I read this book before ! Well then, if you are not a believer of Jesus, study this: Thus says the Lord; ‘ CURSED IS THE MAN WHO TRUSTS IN MAN AND MAKES FLESH HIS STRENGTH, WHOSE HEART DEPARTS FROM THE LORD.., why are you in this webpage for.

            I like ClashDaily very much.

            What renders the evil without remedy, is, that after having established these silly ideas of God, they teach the people to receive them without examination. They take great care to impress them with aversion for philosophers, fearing that the Truth which they teach will alienate them. The errors in which the partisans of these absurdities have been plunged, have thrived so well that it is dangerous to combat them. It is too important for these impostors that the people remain in this gross and culpable ignorance than to allow them to be disabused. Thus they are constrained to disuse the truth, or to be sacrificed to the rage of false prophets and selfish souls.

            If the people could comprehend the abyss in which this ignorance casts them, they would doubtless throw off the yoke of these venal minds…..

            From :

            This little book Tribus famosissimus Nationum Deceptoribus, for that is its true title, was composed after the year 1230 by command of the Emperor Frederick II in hatred of the Court of Rome : and it is quite apparent that Pierre des Vignes, Secretary to the Emperor, was the author.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            Very interesting post. However, how do you explain, in the person of Jesus Christ, how the prophets of the Old Testament predicted how he would die, in minute details, how a baby can choose what city he would be born in (as in Bethlehem, translated to “Bread of Life”, which is what the Messiah is), and many other prophesies that came to fruition in Jesus Christ? The odds of ONE man fulfilling ALL of the 300+ predictions is astronomical.

          • Croco Dile

            Rhonda, if you can point to some of the most clear “prophesies” of those 300+ to understand what you mean….
            You don’t need to post the text, but where I can find them.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            I’m sure that this will suffice… list all 365 of ‘em! http://bibleprobe.com/365messianicprophecies.htm

          • Croco Dile

            Rhonda, you are cheating ! Most of them are fom the New Testament. This is not acceptable.
            Others, as far I can see, don’t mention Jesus at all. Not even “Christ”, which is not Hebrew but Greek.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            I’m cheating? How so? I provided a listing of 365 Messianic prophecies regarding Jesus Christ fulfilling them all. I’d say you are being DELIBERATELY ignorant, since each of the listings begins with the OT scripture of the prophecy, an elipse, a brief description of the prophecy referred to, an elipse, and the NT scripture proving the fulfillment by Jesus Christ. Here’s an example… the first one provided.

            1. Genesis 3:15…..Seed of a woman (virgin birth)…..Luke 1:35, Matthew 1:18-20

            If you choose to be DELIBERATELY ignorant, even with a listing provided, then there’s nothing anyone can do to help you, and you’re on your own. Hopefully, the listing will edify others, because now I believe you’re a lost cause, and Yahweh will deny you at the BEMA seat judgment day.

          • Croco Dile

            Genesis 3:15
            New International Version (NIV)

            And I will put enmity
            between you and the woman,
            and between your offspring[a] and hers;
            he will crush[b] your head,
            and you will strike his heel.”

            ???????

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            Yahweh’s speaking to the symbolic representation of Satan, a snake. Satan is also known as Lucifer, the leader of the rebellious, fallen angels cast from Heaven, and their dominion is our home, Earth, and the 1st and 2nd Heavens (our atmosphere, and the solar system). Satan and his fallen angels think they’re above Yahweh, and have conspired to place themselves above their Creator, and that’s why they were thrown out of His Presence. The Bible explains that in the history of the world, it would be a constant battle for Satan to try and take over the world (strike Jesus’s heel). In the end, he will lose for eternity, and Jesus will be supreme (crushes Satan’s head). That is what the Scripture refers to.

          • Croco Dile

            Rhonda, you said this is about predicting Jesus…. But nothing of that sort !
            Also not in other references down the list….

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            Here… why don’t you go read this, and considering that it’s from Wikipedia, you might believe it more than anything else. It’s a definition of biblical prophecy/predictions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bible_prophecy

            The ENTIRE list of 365 Messianic prophecies ALL refer to the deity of Jesus Christ, including the OT prophecy, and the NT fulfillment of that same prophecy, in the person of Jesus Christ. As I said, you’re being DELIBERATELY obtuse, or you truly are blinded. In either case, you’re lost here, and until you ask for Yahweh’s gift of grace in salvation by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you’ll NEVER understand and continue to be a fool, thinking you’re wise. I can’t help you further.

          • Croco Dile

            I checked out this Wikipedia link and there is not much analysis of prophesies. It is just said they “has been understood as figurative language to describe” different “events” or “non-events”…..

            Here is a description of Jewish prophets taken solely from the Bible :

            The prophets, as described by Inspiration, were a precious set of lazy and worthless vagabonds of Israel, the exact counterpart of the howling dervishes and divination-mongers of their cousin Ishmaelites. They were “seers,” fortune-tellers, and diviners, through pretended dreams and trances, and by the use of sacred dice and arrows, and phallic images of Yahveh.

            The job of a prophet was a free-for-all occupation, which any one who pretended to feel the divine afflatus, or was a fluent liar, could take up at will and without license. The prophet Amos frankly states his own case, which was typical and has passed into a proverb : “I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet’s son; but I was an herdsman; … and Yahveh took me as I followed the flock, and Yahveh said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel” (Amos VII,14,15). Elisha, the baldpate, was a farmer, who when Elijah passed by, dropped his plough and ran after him, and became a prophet too. After this manner are many modern “divines” self-”called.”
            Jeremiah describes their single qualification : “Every man that is mad [ish meshuggah], and maketh himself a prophet” (Jer. XXIX,26). Hosea also declares the same truth : “The prophet is a fool, the man that hath the spirit is mad [meshuggah]” (Hos. IX,7). Elisha is called “this mad fellow [meshuggah]” (2 Kings IX,11). A thousand instances prove the truth of these candid admissions that the prophets were a rabble of frenzied fakirs.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            He’s a Jew who STILL denies that Jesus Christ is the Messiah… which explains his statements of “Yahveh” (he recognizes God’s name as spelled in Hebrew). So, that tells me he believes in God, the Creator, but not in His Son, Jesus Christ.

        The Jews had for centuries, ever since their pretended captivity, lived in the fervent belief and expectation of a Messiah, an anointed king of the race and lineage of David, who should at last arise, overthrow all their enemies, restore the Kingdom of Israel, and reestablish the throne of David forever. Many “pretenders” to the vacant Messiahship had from time to time arisen and asserted their false pretenses to be the promised Messiah; and even Jesus was not the last who arose to proclaim himself the Messiah or Christ. This Jesus himself declared : “For many shall come in my name, saying I am Christ; and shall deceive many…. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matt. XXIV,5,23,24; Mark XIII,6,21,22).
        How and why these false pretenders to Messiahship could “come in my name” – in the name of Yahveh’s genuine Messiah, who had already come and by his own “signs and wonders” had demonstrated to the satisfaction of all who believed them that he thus “fulfilled all the law and the prophets” and was indeed the Messiah and thus closed the lists – is not at this day very evident. But, admittedly, the working of such “great signs and wonders” – miracles – was no authentic badge of Messiahship, but was the common stock in trade of any bogus pretender. Of this fact there are many scriptural assurances and instances besides the admission just made by Jesus.

        • Sunny

          @croco…just trying to help you out, if possible…Read the Book of Revelations. Then, ask God if it’s true…praying for you buddy!

            No.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            So, you read from books that attempt to destroy the Bible, rather the Bible itself. You should always go to the Bible first, and THEN compare it to other writings, which were written by men who attempt to destroy Him, because they don’t want to live in morality, but rather moral decay.

          • Croco Dile

            Joseph Wheless in “IS IT GOD’S WORD ?” wrote :
            No man, priest, parson, or zealot for his inherited faith, can say with truth that this book of mine falsely or wantonly “attacks the Bible,” or defames the Bible God, or ridicules the Christian religion. If iconoclastic results follow this candid search of the Scriptures, the fault is with the Bible, for this my book speaks truly. This book is based wholly on the Bible; its all but every reference is to the Bible, faithfully quoted in exact words of inspiration. The Hebrao-Christian God is depicted in plain words of revelation for every word and deed attributed to him by the inspired writers. This God “whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you,” truly. This book is simply the Bible taken by and large, and thus viewed in a light not shed upon it by pulpit expoundings of golden texts, or by private readings of isolated choice fragments.

  • NoLibLiz

    Of course the left won’t like this article. It is a given that ANYTHING positive about Christianity is instantly attacked. The exact same details could be recounted in a non-Christian context and they would be praising the daylights out of it.

    The old saying there is nothing so sure as death and taxes needs to be edited:

    There is nothing so sure as death, taxes, vicious attacks on anything Christian and the left crying racism about any and every thing they disagree with.

  • Hexman

    Right on Doug! For a guy who’s spent years doing men’s ministry and 911 work for the Kingdom… We need more folks that understand being “Tried and Tested”. Thank goodness for God’s rain, and thank goodness especially for His grace when we fail!
    TerrencelnDC, Grow up, grow in Spirit and discernment! We as a Nation and people are being tested! You don’t need to be an adrenaline junkie to appreciate it. And yes we need more strong leaders that love Jesus, you know, the man considered by many to be the King of all Fools.

  • Merlinever

    Anyone who takes lessons from a work of fiction like the Bible is screwed.

    • 19gundog43

      Glad you are sooooo much more intelligent than we poor dumb Christians who trust the “work of fiction” that has never been proven incorrect. Gotta suck to be you and your friends (if you have any).

      • Croco Dile

        It has been proven incorrect thousands or millions of times, but there are still so many arrogant minds out there which just refuse to use their own head and their ability to reason. They prefer to spit at those who can understand, and this way showing so the lowliness of their own mind.

        • 19gundog43

          Proof, Croc-of-crap!

        • grumpy

          It isn’t the Christians that are spitting on morons like you. You are the ones that cannot leave well enough alone. You have to rail against the believers as if you have something to prove. What is it? Why do you feel the overwhelming urge to ridicule someone who believes in the Love of God? What do you gain in this ridiculous tirade? It is your own arrogance that compels you to ridicule someone who doesn’t believe exactly as you. And last, but not least: you say “it has been proven thousands or millions of times”. OK, I don’t need a million or even a thousand. Just prove it once, dumbass.

            Without realizing it Christians are worshiping evil.

          • Ricarrdo estavans

            You probably never read the Bible. Maybe the first 2-3 pages then went back to your sports or porn site. Read on, the Bible teaches free thought, love thy neighbor etc. Also morality. Pretty lacking these days.

          • Croco Dile

            Ricardo, I have read definitely many more pages and there was nothing real. All a strange Fantasy and even wickedness.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            You’re the one that’s delusional, because you scoff at the Truth. He says, in the Bible, that those that refuse to see, will be consumed by their own importance, and never be able to understand His Word. It’s funny how a radical such as Jesus was able to convince enough people (not counting the original 12 disciples, but the thousands that came to know Him while He walked the earth) to start a movement that has taken over the world, and is still one of the largest religions in the world for over 2,000 years (Christianity). Considering that He came to earth for the Jews, not anyone else. How do you explain that phenomenon, world-wise, not just the USA.

        • Ricarrdo estavans

          I guess you find teaching the masses to love one another, not to steal, rape and pillage,healthy diets , fair financial dealings, etc is horrible to you?

          • Croco Dile

            No, this is the only part that make sense in the Bible, Ricardo.

        • Rhonda Renee Sessions

          Show me the truth in your statement, by providing substantiated instances of it. Otherwise, you’re full of untruths!

          • Ben Name

            show the proof that it isn’t a work of fiction.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            Very simple… the person of Jesus Christ, who, by independent confirmation of noted historian, Josephus Flavius, existed. The nation of Israel that was reborn May 14, 1948, prophesied in Ezekiel 37. Israel is the ONLY nation of the world’s history that has come into existence again, and God said He would bring her back.

          • Ben Name

            just because someone named Jesus existed doesn’t make it evidence that the Bible is a work of fact. I haven’t read the entire bible, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t say anything about the date of May 14th, 1948 as when Israel would become a nation again.

          • Croco Dile

            What Rhonda writes is not true ! The historian Josephus never confirmed any Jesus except one leader of rebels with this name who was killed by the Romans in a battle. Less he confirmed a Messiah !

            Uh… I think this will prove that Josephus did indeed recognize Jesus as the “so-called Christ” as provided by quotes from his works. http://www.facingthechallenge.org/josephus.php

            hmmm. A jewish man living and working for an oppressive leader, his writings are now beginning to make sense to me.

            Rhonda, too bad David Couchman is purly Christian writer and so can’t be trusted. If you would like to read whole book about Josephus, the Flavian Caesars and “Jesus” then I can recomend you one.
            Because this authos is not a Christian he can be trusted. He analyzes the work of Josephus through all his book.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            Choosing semantics over a particular date is ludicrous. No where in Ezekiel 37 is there a particular date but rather the promise and prophecy that Israel would arise again, which she did, on May 14, 1948. Try reading the entire Bible, both OT and NT, with the help and request of the Holy Spirit to show you the wisdom contained within.

          • Ben Name

            “No where in Ezekiel 37 is there a particular date…” Thank you. The way you first wrote was claiming there was a specific date. Next time please keep that false notion in your head and don’t speak it. It’s not true.

            I’m not ever going to get around to reading either of those books in their entirety. Thanks for the encouragement though. Too few people here understand the importance of encouragement. God Bless You.

      • Merlinever

        I never wrote that Christians are lacking in intelligence; Christians are delusional only when it comes to their religious beliefs. However these beliefs affect all other aspects of their lives and represent a danger to all other reasonable people; a nation in which the majority of the population are delusional is a dangerous place.
        There is an abundance of proof that the Bible is incorrect and a work of fiction:
        What else but a work of fiction would you call a book that mentions a child being born of a virgin, a man who walked on water, a man who parted a sea with a gesture of his hands and a snake that talked?

        • 19GUNDOG43

          What a stinking pile of dog squeeze! History’s delusional dangerous people were the ones who denied the God of the Bible NOT Christians. We were the ones who built hospitals, orphanages, schools etc! Not the God-deniers.” There is an abundance of proof that the Bible is incorrect and a work of fiction:” People like yourself and Croc-of Crap always ramble on like this without proving their claim. Just more undocumented BS from the inhabitants of Clown Collage who are the smartest in the room (in their own eyes). LMAO!

          • Merlinever

          Your so right. The bible instructs us humans how to care for others, being fair and responsible, love your parents children others , not to steal, murder, rape pillage cheat on your spouse etc. . How horrible for someone like you to accept such vile things. Besides the bible was translated, interpreted quite a few times in different languages and cultures. Look up the words parable and metaphor.

          • Merlinever

            “The Bible instructs us humans..not to murder, rape, pillage” etc.

            Have you ever read the Bible?

            Violence in the Bible:

            If a man is caught in the act of
            raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to
            her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he
            will never be allowed to divorce her. (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)

            Rape a woman? Pay a fine, then it’s all good. Also, marry the girl you raped -
            she’ll be sure to love that.

            If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has
            relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and
            there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though
            she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.
            (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)

            Raped? GET STONED TO DEATH!

            Thus says the Lord: ‘I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will
            take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your
            neighbor. He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this
            deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and
            with the sun looking down.’ (2 Samuel 12:11-14 NAB)

            God will punish men by allowing other men to rape their women.

            When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of
            six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may
            allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to
            foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. (Exodus
            21:7-11 NLT)

            Women are property.

            Lo, a day shall come for the Lord when the spoils shall be divided in your
            midst. And I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle: the city shall be
            taken, houses plundered, WOMEN RAVISHED; half of the city shall go into exile,
            but the rest of the people shall not be removed from the city. (Zechariah
            14:1-2 NAB) [emphasis mine]

            “Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will
            bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you:
            but unto this man do not so vile a thing. But the men would not hearken to him:
            so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew
            her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to
            spring, they let her go.” (Judges 19:24-25)

        • Rhonda Renee Sessions

          You don’t like being in a Judeo-Christian nation (which, contrary to what our president says, America is), then pack your crap and leave… don’t let the door hit you in the rear on the way out!

          • Ben Name

            Yeah, if you don’t like it, then leave is the answer. No toleration. No helping the meek. No compassion is allowed on OUR soil!

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            There is NO getting around “delusional” when someone who is, is accusing others of being delusional. He’s not happy, and thinks that Christians are a danger to the world, so he has a choice… either accept that the majority of Americans are Christians, in some denomination, and that this country is founded on Judeo-Christian foundations, or he can leave to find happiness and others that believe as he does. Any and all immigrants understand what it is here, even though some will continue to deny it (our president, for example). And that is what I was responding to. Accusing people of being “delusional” is intolerant, as well, IMO. You can worship as you wish… NO one who is a Christian will change your mind, because ONLY YOU can change your mind. But I have no tolerance for religions that FORCE you to change your faith to theirs, such as Islam.

          • Ben Name

            “There is NO getting around “delusional” when someone who is, is accusing others of being delusional.” That’s quite a Catch 22.

            “But I have no tolerance for religions…such as Islam.” That’s not very Christian of you.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            So, that’s what the OP is setting up, isn’t it? Who, but the Creator, knows the Truth? If you deny Him, or His Son, then He won’t be tolerant of you, either. And based on that basis, I don’t have to be tolerant of you, or someone who will kill me in a heartbeat, because I happen to believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

          • Ben Name

            Nice that you don’t deny your intolerance. I applaud you for your conviction. Most people would just call me a name or claim I was stupid. I can see you are much better than most that post here.

          • Croco Dile

            Yes, Rhonda is one of those “zivilized” ones !

          • afanaglenn

            ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION. It is a tyrannical cult whose goal is to control everyone and everything, by force if necessary. And force it is they use on their own people to make sure they all stay in line. The men beat up each other to assert control, rape their women and children, as well as kill them if they do not bowel down to their self-adjudged superiority. They need to be removed from civilized society, and yes, forcibly if necessary, as is their practice of treatment of others. They are the scum of the earth, rotten from the inside out.

          • Merlinever

            I don’t like the fact that the majority of the people in my country are delusional.
            And what makes you think that I should leave and make America have one less reasonable person?

          It’s not what you write but what is interpreted by the less educated that is the problem. Dumb it down some more.

          • Merlinever

            I don’t “dumb it down” when I’m replying to the less educated; if I did, I’d be enabling them to remain less educated and would probably start to sound as dumb as they are.

          • Ben Name

            Oh, thank you for doing your part to lift people out of poverty. You must work for the government teet.

          • Merlinever

            How is it that you think it’s my duty to lift others out of their poverty?
            And of course I don’t work for the government; to do that, I’d have to be as brainless as you appear to be.

          • Ben Name

            You’re right, it’s not your duty to do anything that Jesus Christ taught. I mean, it’s not like our country was founded on his teachings.

          • Merlinever

            We are not our brothers’ keepers; the idea that we are is the basis for socialism and communism.
            As for our country being founded on the teachings of Jesus (a fictional character):
            “The United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion” by unanimous act of the U.S. Senate treaty of Tripoli, ratified June 7, 1797

          • Ben Name

            Oh. Okay. I’m glad to know 99% of everyone posting here is wrong about that tidbit. I wonder what else they are brainwashed with.

            And it’s good to know that Socialism is founded on Christianity. That’s good firepower to use here as well. Could you please point me to the part in the bible that talks about that subject. I’d sure not like to waste a moment searching through that huge document. It’d be like trying to read “Obama Care Act”.

          • Merlinever

            Acts 2:44-45: “And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. “

            serpent is another word for satan.

          • fedup

            Yeah, that’s true for the most part. Here the fiery serpents were sent to execute God’s purifying judgements They forced the people to recognize that they talked dung to Moses as Gods delegated authority, so the snakes made them think they sinned against the Lord God. The Brazen Sepent is a figure of a weak human in his lowest as percieved by most of humanity. (Jesus) God will not heal His people until they look UP and exalt the weak, lowly one whom they discarded. They took His kindness for a weakness and God released His judgments on all of us. You see where I’m coming from ?

          • Ben Name

            No they weren’t. your god is Satan.

      • Ben Name

        You said it…dumb christians.

    • Ricarrdo estavans

      Besides the religious metaphors, the Bible instructs (being the FIRST BOOK) the people how to deal with others fairly, teaches proper diets, teaches finance, how to love your spouse your children and others, caring for others etc. I could go on but I see from your image (if that’s you) your too old to learn anything new.

      • Merlinever

        “..the Bible instructs (being the First Book) the people how to deal with others fairly..”?

          So-called contradictions in the Holy Bible are of no concern. The US Tax Code is a monstrous multi-volume library loaded with hypocritical and nonsensical passages that contradict one another, yet I have yet to meet a liberal who doesn’t believe in heavy taxation (for others).

          • Merlinever

            What does the U.S. Tax Code have to do with what is written in the Bible??
            You have not refuted, nor can you refute any of what I wrote in my last reply.

          • Richard Vandiamondsworth

            I don’t have to refute your Christophobia. Your mind is already made up and you’d rather cling to legalism.

            Show us some examples of modern Christians following the passages you mention.

            The communist murder count last century was 100 million. Not all atheists are communists, but all communists are atheists.

          • Merlinever

            Well, I’m glad to see that your sense of humor is still in tact.
            All I could be accused of is clinging to is reality and reason.
            With regard to your religious beliefs, what you’re clinging to is belief in things for which there is no proof or evidence and wishful thinking.
            The crimes the communists are guilty of were not committed because they lacked a belief in God.

          • Richard Vandiamondsworth

            The crimes the communists are guilty of were not committed because they lacked a belief in God.

            When man places his State above God, mass deaths ensue.

            Merlin, religion is here to stay. I opine that religion has done far more good than evil. The best true unbelief anyone can have is agnosticism. You and I have eyes that can only see what amounts to a splinter on the electromagnetic spectrum. God could be ‘hiding’ on a perch 10,000 years in the future or chillaxing at the core of the Big Bang, where our instruments cannot see. Either way, we cannot declare with 100% certainty that there is no God.

          • Merlinever

            When man puts his trust in an imaginary being, disaster is ensured.
            As for where you wrote that “religion is here to stay”, that will continue to be true only as long as ignorance and superstition are wide spread and there are people who would rather believe lies than face the truth.
            However. with the spread of communication and knowledge provided by the internet, it would seem that religions will not survive forever in the light of reality provided by it.
            “The days of our religious identities are clearly numbered. Whether the days of civilization itself are numbered would seem to depend, rather too much, on how soon we realize this.” (epilogue, page 127, “The End of Faith” by Sam Harris).

        • James Cooke

          Merlinever, you have missed the point that will make all the difference in your, and my, understanding of the Bible. CONTEXT. I just scanned your lengthy reply and didn’t read every word, but the passages I caught as I flew by were all passages from the Hebrew Bible (e.g., the Old Testament). That part of the Bible was written to tell the history of a particular people and their relation to God. These people had a specific task with specific expectations. The relationship was a two-way street, what we would call a contract. They call it a covenant. So what was expected of them is not necessarily expected of us. Where there is a carryover, from one Testament to another, the guidelines for Christians is stated, frequently accompanied by an example of that rule in action. Hope this helps.

          • Merlinever

            “..but the passages I caught as I flew by..”.
            Why did you fly by?
            Don’t fly by.
            Haste makes waste.
            “So what was expected of them is not necessarily expected of us.”
            Expected?
            By whom?
            With all due respect, I believe it is you who have missed the point:
            The Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament, are works of fiction and there is no God to expect anything of anyone.
            I hope this helps.
