Decon: 3 - God kills 42 kids for calling a guy bald

This one I have to thank one of my podcasts for bringing to my attention. I am not a bible scholar, heck I am barely a bible surfer. But I love a good quote.

When you are chatting with some one. Tell them you heard about this religion when there was this guy who was going up a mountain. Then a couple of kids start teasing the guy for having a bald head. So the guy does prayer and their god comes down and kills not just the 2 kids, but them and 40 more kids. And does not just kill them humanely, but instead calls upon 2 female bears to tear up those 42 kids into bits.

Can you imagine a religion where that is the proper punishment for being called bald. Most importantly, all the people who died before, were supposed to be hanging out with that god and felt he was great. What was interesting for hundreds of years, folks still thought that was a great god and wanted to still say how great he was for all eternity.

Now ask them...
Do you think that killing kids is good punishment for calling someone bald?
Do you think that god was "fair and just" to kill an additional 40 kids?
Do you think the kids should have been killed more humanely, or are 2 bears a good use of power to answer a prayer about being called a bald?

With all the crazy gods that are out there, can you guess which one did this?

the answer - "Yours!". Yep this is from the bible.
Just leave it there. And let them ponder it.
When you go to heaven, remember to tell god you supported his decision.

I will give the details below, but don't share it with them.
Make them go to the bible and look it up for themselves

Elisha and the Two Bears (2 Kings 2:23-25)
23 Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!” 24 When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number. 25 And he went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.

have fun with this...
