Ray's Discomfort

Leonie gets it right... Leonie gets it booking right! Ray Comfort truly is a complete dumbass of epic proportions. This time Bananaman is taken to task for yet another stupid statement:

Bibliophile must mean you like to fuck your bible I guess. I'm booking off right now! Anyways, if you're wondering, Leonie really did lay him out beautifully. Let's start with her first verse mentioned:

No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known. - John 1:18

The genius of this one is that it is within the paragraph that equates the "Word" with Jesus, meaning weirdly to some fundies that the Bible is Jesus and vice versa. You know, if metaphors stump you but handling snakes is fun, I guess you could love thinking there's something witty in that.

The second verse she mentions doubles down on that:

No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. - John 6:46

This portion, called "Bread of Life," and is basically a bunch of bullshit mumbo jumbo about never being hungry if you come to him, and eating the true bread, and manna, and this and that, and of course, grumbling idiots who just don't get it. In other words, people speaking on behalf of God even though they've never met him. Like Ray Comfort does all the time. All the booking time!

But of course, the people coming up to Jebus and challenging him are right to do so. Because he says no one... and yet he claims he has. I'd challenge that too. Just like we're challenging Ray here. Who says he has a relationship with the author of the Bible. 

Um... Ray? Yeah, there are many authors to the many books in that thing there. They were all humans. You do not have a relationship with them by reading this version, handed down with many layers of translation errors, and altered majorly since their original penning. Any more than I have a relationship with Stephen King just because I read It.

But for added genius, she nailed him with the Old Testament too, with the part where Jacob wrestles with God. Yes, someone not only wrestled with God, but won! And God is such a whiny bitch loser that he cripples him for losing to him. This even discredits the verses she just used, showing Ray that the Bible totally contradicts itself!

So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, “It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.” - Genesis 32:30

Finally nailing it down with something from the droning book of Numbers:

And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard that you, Lord, are with these people and that you, Lord, have been seen face to facethat your cloud stays over them, and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. - Numbers 14:14

And here, he's talking about grumbling shits who have met God (although let's be fair, the idea of face to face here is in the form of pillars... those are hardly faces) and still complain. Meaning he must not be all that impressive. Especially since he's petty, jealous, and lousy at wrestling.

By the way, Ray, Stephen King says hi. And where you're going when you die, he wanted you to know that you'll float down there. They all float down here!
