1 Kings 11:1-3
King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh’s daughter—Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. They were from nations about which the LORD had told the Israelites, “You must not intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods.” Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love. He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray.

Discuss.

Good for Solomon!!

So the nasty, sexually-repressed, racist, violent “God” of the OT tells Sol to just marry his cousins and ignore the girls from the next town.

Well, I find it refreshing and hopeful that we still revere Solomon to this day for his wisdom.

2. biggerbox spews:

700 wives and 300 concubines? Is that the “traditional marriage” that we keep hearing about having to be ‘defended’?

(It is impressive that Solomon could function on so little sleep…)

The father of the most of you was Ghengis Kahn, a man who might well be called the father of gods.

Then, of course, we have Krishna, perhaps the greatest of lovers.

And could it really be that I would have a son who was celibate? A son of God who never experienced love of woman or man?

Puddy doesn’t know if your son is celibate or not SeattleJew. If you are referring to Jesus; remember you are the created, Jesus is the creator.

Solomon was warned at the Temple dedication ceremony about following God with all his heart. He was led astray with all his wives.

I was not aware of Jesus’ creativity – what did he create, Pud?

Quite so, God.
I am always amazed by your followers – we humans, who have been imbued (by you?) with wondrous sexuality as a portal to the divine, expected to deny it because you find it shameful.

Weird weird weird Christians (particularly the celibate clergy).

I feel like those guys with the shovels that follow the horses in a parade.

In any event, Modern religions are political, not spiritual. Anything resembling spirituality preset in today’s houses of worship is mere window-dressing to keep the rubes occupied while their pockets are picked. These rules were set down long ago by political councils to centralize the power in one group. (ie: Council of Nicaea in 325)

Solomon had the right idea and the means to do it. Keep your neighbors happy and get a little “somethin’-somethin’” on the side.

It’s good to be the King!

@13: It doesn’t. Pudpuller is a psychotic religious fanatic who’s particular brand of delusion is Adventist (descended from Millerites — see also Burned Over).

Basically, it’s some Xtrianists’ interpretation of “scripture”, referred to as the “Holy Trinity” (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

Trinitarianism (or not) is one of those “angel’s on the head of a pin” things that people are willing to kill and die for. Many people have been tortured to death for refusing to conform to one version or another of this interpreted bizaare concept.

The New Testament does not have an explicit doctrine of the Trinity. However, Southern Baptist theologian Frank Stagg emphasizes that the New Testament does repeatedly speak of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit to “compel a trinitarian understanding of God.”[4]

[snip]

Trinitarianism contrasts with Nontrinitarian positions which include Binitarianism (one deity/two persons), Unitarianism (one deity/one person), the Oneness belief held by certain Pentecostal groups, Modalism, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ view of the Godhead as three separate beings who are one in purpose rather than essence.

I suppose you knew all this, but I thought it would be appropriate to show how truly bizaare judeo-christianity is if you give it the merest scrutiny.

The verses that follow…

4
When Solomon was old his wives had turned his heart to strange gods, and his heart was not entirely with the LORD, his God, as the heart of his father David had been.
5
By adoring Astarte, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Milcom, the idol of the Ammonites,
6
Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not follow him unreservedly as his father David had done.
7
Solomon then built a high place to Chemosh, the idol of Moab, and to Molech, the idol of the Ammonites, on the hill opposite Jerusalem.
8
He did the same for all his foreign wives who burned incense and sacrificed to their gods.
9
The LORD, therefore, became angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice
10
(for though the LORD had forbidden him this very act of following strange gods, Solomon had not obeyed him).

It’s very interesting to me that God got pissed about the worshiping of other gods – not the polygamy or adultery or holder of enslaved concubines. God seems to get jealous about potential or perceived rivals. Sins of the flesh – not so much.

So God (HA variety), what have you to say about this? This is you they’re talking about getting angry with Sol, right?

Whence the sexual prudery of Christianity? God doesn’t seem to have a problem with Solomon having his carnal sugar, as it were. Does this boil down to the essential authoritarianism and hypocrisy of Christianity – it’s OK to break the rules if your the boss/priest/preacher, but not the little guy? Christianity’s main attribute, it seems, is reinforcing an essentially feudal societal system, so this doesn’t seem at all surprising.

Really? I am also blamed, the form of Hamatza, for cannibalism by the Nuchalnuth and in the form of Jesus for the mass holocaust carried out in My name.

You seem to forget that the Book of Kings has never been claimed by Me. Apparently, it was useful to the Romans when they legislated the Christian canon.

Blaming Me for stories about King Solomon makes no more sense then blaming me for the behavior of Torquemada, the Popes, GW Bush, or the angel Moroni.
If you want to blame Me, then blame Me for My deeds! Plague, cancer, Nazis, … I have created some pretty awful things. If you truly believe in Me, then you need to blame Me.

I am that I am.

26. Liberal Scientist spews:

If you want to blame Me, then blame Me for My deeds! Plague, cancer, Nazis, … I have created some pretty awful things.

Not to mention Christians. And Puddy – you created Puddy, right?

How can you disavow responsibility for these followers of yours running about claiming divine inspiration from you and special covenants with you and friendship with your son…you seem to be at the center of all this.

With regard to Solomon, I was trying to point out the the author of 1 Kings seems to be saying that you got pissed about Sol indulging his many wives (and sheesh, cut the guy some slack, with that many wives how could he not be forgiven for indulging them thusly – can you imagine the domestic hell if he didn’t?). But back to the topic – the author seems to be claiming that the thing that got Sol into trouble with you was the worshiping of others than you – which makes you seem pretty insecure, really.

I also found it interesting that you were not reported to be pissed about the polyamory going on in the House of Solomon.

To borrow a phrase from lazy contemporary journalism, “Some say God got jealous about the competition, but not about the sexual highjinks. Can you comment God?”

27. God spews:

LS

“Create” is a big word, but yes, I am both the creator and the truth and the universe.

So, I created Puddy and this blog, just as I created HIV and chocolate. Please remember, you can choose to eat chocolate, expose yourself to HIV or even use reason I(another of My creations).

As for Solomon, why would you blame Me because Ytzak say that I did this or that because I was mad? Blame Ytzak, not Me .. other than for creating Ytzak.

Look at this way, some guy wins an election and thanks Me for it. Should his opponent blame me?

As for polygamy .. of any gender ration, not a problem for Me. After all, you folks do have free choice. Just remember, choices do have consequences.

I am that I am.

I am (just) that I am.

31. correctnotright spews:

The funny thing about this quote is that all of Jerusalem was probably about 1,000-2,000 people at the time. So it was impossible for Solomon to really have that many wives and concubines.

In ancient times, the number of wives and concubines was a way of measuring wealth and importance. This is clearly a case of exagerrating the “symbolic” importance of King Solomon.

39. SJ spews:

Puddykins

Leaving aside your fantasies about me, I thought your religion teaches that only the devil demands of God that he/she prove itself?

Are you the devil?

As for turning fish sandwiches into Gold, that is really easy .. how often do YOU eat at MickeyD’s?

Of course, if you THOUGHT about your challenge, you might wonder if it were not better directed at turning a fish sandwich into a 24k Goldstein!

Now, the more interesting part, where Professor SJ gives Puddykins a lesson in creating children. I though you knew how that was done?

See, it goes like this … the Puddy Daddy has an organ called a testicle. In the testicle, Daddy has cells that have divided in a special way so these cells, called “sperm” each have only 1/2 of Daddy’s genes!

The Puddy Mommy has an organ called an ovary. In the ovary, Mommy has cells that have divided in a special way so these cells, called “eggs” each have only 1/2 of Mommy’s genes!

Well … the next steps are pretty simple, not any real creation … just a coming together of Puddy Daddy and Puddy Mommy to let the sperm and the eggs join together. When that happens, the sperm and the egg make a new cell. That cell has a fancy name .. the zygote.

Now there really is nothing all that unique about this cell, actually each of us has 100s of thousands of cells that thousands of cells just like the zygote … you, my fur faced fellow, can be cloned! Whiskers and all!

Anyhow, that zygote, if allowed to grow for some time produces enough cells that they begin talking t each other! Ans what do they say? They say .. lets make a Puddy! But they have a long way to go. How can you make a Puddy whye all you have is some dumb old cells?

These cells are called embryonic stem cells but no Puddy yet!

So first the stem cells divide a lot and make a kind of hollow ball, kinda sorta like a tennis ball. Then parts of the tennis ball fall into the inside .. kind of like food falling into your tummy or maybe, in a biblical sense, like Jonah in the tummy of the whale!!

But, the cells in the tenis ball’s tummy and the cells on the outside of the tennis ball start talking to each other, like ants in a hive!

Like ants in the hive, these cells in the hive look pretty much alike. BUT, unlike ants, the Puddy cells, after awhile, begin to make things that you need to make a Puddy.

But there is still is no Puddy. You know why? Cuz Puddy is a lot more than juts some cells!

To make a Puddy, you need lots of cells that do different things … decide which cells will be Puddy’s front, which will be his back. Which will be the right and which will be the left. Did you know Puddy even has a tail! If I touch it I may tickle you!!!

STILL no Puddy, just a lot of cells with addresses.

BUT cells in these addresses still talk to each other. They make more interesting things .. a backbone, bunches of cells that can become muscle and skeleton. Other groups start building a heart, lungs, gut and even blood!

One such group sends messages that will make nerves to control all these new cell communities.

Stll no Puddy!

Well sometime later the nerve cells begin to make new groups withing themselves, kind of like the cpu of the computer Puddy Daddy uses to print money on that machine in the secret room in the basement!

Still no Puddy!!

Well, after awhile, this cpu gets pretty smart, more groups of cells make what computer types call a “parallel processor.” This thing is pretty damn smart … it is becoming ..it is learning, soon ….

a Puddy!

Get some sleep bubbelah!

Criticism of Christianity and some of the less savory features that our society exhibits as a consequence of Christianity being widespread and more-or-less unquestioned, indeed.

One could say that we at this site engage in a similar critique of capitalism and the manifest ways that it has failed to meet our needs as a society, in an economic sense.

We also criticize police power and how our government has deployed our armed forces and surveillance powers, and the lavish amount of our treasure we’ve spent on these things – and to what end?

As you note, these criticisms do indeed derive from a progressive vantage point. However, from your wording I surmise that you find that this is a bad thing, and I would anticipate some sort of “Commie Atheist American-hater” retort, or something of that ilk. It is something we hear all the time from our resident young-earth creationist, dollar-lovin’, poor-person-hatin’ (but accepting of poverty), Bible-thumpin’ members of this community – we generally call them trolls.

On the contrary, such criticism is offered because we care about our society and our fellow humans. We want to try to find ways to be better, to do things differently, to find ways that do not exclude, that extinguish ignorance, that condemn hatred. Essential to this is to examine and call into questions assumptions – sometime long- and dearly-held assumptions, and this can be shocking and painful for some.

You engage in something that has long bothered me about American politics. Part of improving and growing is examining and understanding what works and does not. Democrats and leftists have long tended to do this – speaking for the workers and the poor and the immigrants and the ill – the people generally getting the shaft. (Notwithstanding the corporate shift that the Democratic Party have taken over the past 20 or so years) Pointing out flaws in our system, inconsistencies between the myths we tell about ourselves and the reality of poverty and hunger and poor schools and exploitation and absence of opportunity and the massive divide in this nation between the few that have and the very many that do not.

A common, common retort to such essential and constructive criticism is that we are “Un-American” for pointing out our flaws. We’ve been tarred for not clapping loudly enough, for not engaging in the bellicose, in the “we’re the greatest” self-hagiography. We heard this over and over last election night – I remember Rand Paul doing this most clearly – yalping to his crowd about the US being the greatest nation that ever existed on the face of the earth, or some such cringe-inducing nonsense. Or John Boehner going on quite incorrectly and cynically about “the greatest health care system in the world” in an attempt to make the world safe for Aetna and Merck.

So you have found that we openly criticize Christianity – yup we do, and religion more broadly, though the dominant religion here is Christianity – Muslims and Jews take it in the shorts, too – particularly when we’re discussing the political and social mess that is the Middle East, and the US role/responsibility there. Point is, be prepared to have your assumptions shaken, or head elsewhere.

If you don’t think your anti-Christian sentiments don’t seep out to her, you are wrong Goldy. Kids are mighty perceptive.

God gave her to you. Yet you openly fail to acknowledge God and worship with her.
How do you coordinate disciple with your ex-wife?
Lots of issues that the Bible addresses and can help you with Goldy…rather than relying on your emotion & intuition. Start with Hebrews 12:1-9–


1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

God Disciplines His Children

4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. 5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,
“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
6 because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”[a]

7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

Help your daughter Goldy…give her a firm foundation. No offense Goldy…but I think Gold and His Son Jesus are better models for living a righteous life than you, me etc…although kids do end up modeling what their parents do, think & say. She is a mirror Goldy…reflecting YOU and without faith…YOU alone.

Whenever Jesus talks about sex, it’s in an effort to get his fellow Jews to pull the stick out of their asses and lighten the fuck up. They’re all set to stone the poor adulteress to death, and Jesus points out that they are all sexually active too and lets the woman go with a reprimand. Pretty large commutation! And he points out that everyone feels lust in their heart, everyone feels the impulse. So he reasons that since we are all sexual, we should not judge others for being sexual.

This doesn’t sound, to me, like the sort of words a celibate man would utter. It seems fairly plain that Jesus was pro-sex by the standards of his society and time. And then after he was dead, Paul of Tarsus just HAD to come along and plant the stick back into Christianity’s collective ass. Sigh.
