The Bible is stupid, as we know, because free thinkers! People who hate on the Bible simply lack an understanding of philosophy. One can reject the metaphysics of the Bible while respecting the wisdom (ethics) contained inside the Good Book.
- Metaphysics v. ethics.
God v. living life. Plato v. Aristotle. You can believe in the Big Bang and evolution while also recognizing the existence of Biblical wisdom.
- “The wages of sin are death.”
Is watching pornography a sin? Look what it does to you. Are you a druggie looking for his fix?
Many bodybuilders and fitness people are ranting lunatics due to being undercarbed and using stimulants.
- “Keep your lamp trimmed and burning.”
Always look your best, as you never know when opportunity will show up in your town. This requires vigilance.
- Parable of the Talents.
What does A Bronx Tale have to do with the Bible?
You should loan money to your friends. You’ll learn a lot about who is worth keeping and who belongs in Outer Darkness.
(Wisdom from A Bronx Tale.)
