The eternal wisdom of God #5: This woman is wearing trousers, what shall I do oh mighty smiter?

This is an ongoing series designed to share the wisdom of God with you. If the Bible is to be considered legitimate, we should be able to read it and say to ourselves “Wow, this is so insightful it must be the eternal wisdom of the divine creator”. The guidance must be so amazing that it could not simply have been written by some loin-clothed bronze-age lunatic, it can only be the word of God.

It’s a serious issue. You are walking down the street and you see a woman wearing trousers, what do you do? Deuteronomy, the source of much wisdom, has an answer for us.

“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”
Deuteronomy 22:5

We know how God feels about abominations unto himself. Some kind stoning is probably in order.

This one was inspired by The Skeptics Annotated Bible.

    I am more than happy to get stoned if it helps the Christian fraternity. More than happy. I’ll go and get the Rizla.
