One thing “Christians” love to do is make fun of Islam because its Heaven includes a bevy of renewable virgins for every man, the houris.
Let us now look at what the ian heaven consists of. According to the Old Testament derivation, heaven is where the saints spend all of eternity shouting praises of God. No women for the men, no men fo rhte owmen, no food, no wine, nothing but song. And the songs are nothing but praise, explaining to God Almighty that he is Special.
If you’re going to make fun of somebody else’s Paradise, you have to be willing to take some discussion of your own.
As I rmemeber it, the reason Jesus gave us The Lord’s Prayer began with the statement, “It is enough that you calla fish a fish.” He then proceeded to show how one simply told the Father what one wanted: daily bread, forgive us IF we forgive others, and show us the way.
End. Schluss. Fini. It is enough to calla fish a fish.
Jesus NEVER ONCE told people to Read More Bible. And Jesus MEVER OINCE said “Praise God!”
That is STRICTLY Old Testament and pagan stuff. God KNOWS who he is.
There is little in the accepted biblical text more obviously nailed on than, ath the end of hta discourse about calling a fish a fish, the word: “For thine is the Kingdom, hte Power and the Glory Forever.” It’s beautiful,but it is absurd. But later writers could not let Christ get away with no PTL.
And that, boys and gfirls, is sillier than houris.
