God continues to lay on the threats in Leviticus 26:33-39. This time he even threatens to remove peopleís free will and turn them into cowards.

And whatís the deal with all these swordsmen? If God was trying to make this a timeless book, he really could have used better language. I mean, imagine if he were to send swordsmen to attack a city today? They would be leveled in seconds by automatic machine-gun bursts. Whatís next spear-men? Gruff barflies with broken bottles? Seriously, step it up God, we have stealth bombers and Apache helicopters!

I know that the comic essays have been pretty sparse this week, but thereís really not much to say other than God is reveling himself to be the most awful villain that literature has ever seen. I could have just skipped over these verses in a single comic, but I think itís important for people to really understand whatís in the bible.

Did you mean "when nobody is perusing them" as in to view, to study? Or "when nobody is pursuing them" as in to chase, to follow?

I agree TAG. When revealing a bully, best to keep it in perspective. The threats went on and on and to shorten them would be hiding what a total jerk this so called "God" is.

you know what I just realized, God pretty heavily features most of the 7 Deadly Sins.
Wrath: He threatens (and sometimes carries out) horrible punishments on those who slight.
Pride: he constantly heightens himself, always reminding others that he is the lord and that he helped the Israelites out of Egypt.
Envy: he refers to himself as a "jealous God" several times and acts like it too.
Lust: not in a sexual way but his desire for animal sacrifices can be seen as a form of bloodlust, also a possible lust for power.
Gluttony: animal sacrifices also fall under this due the fact that he doesn't need those animals whereas the Israelites do.
Sloth and Greed are less present, with the greatest example of Greed being his desire for his tabernacle and priests to be greatly decorated (though this seems to fit more with pride). The only example of sloth I can think of is God not solving problems like world hunger, but that seems more out of a desire to let humans live their own lives and/or general assholery then actual laziness.

989fox989 well sloth could be seen in the way he promises something and then takes many generations before this promised is sort of filled, like giving the land he promised.

989fox989 Well he also forcibly impregnates the virgin wife of another man, which I would call lust.
