Not really sure how to take this list, but it caught my eye. The Episcopal Café reproduced a list called, “The Ten Worst Bible Passages.” Now that’s an eye opener for sure. Actually, I’ve never even thought the question or even asked it for that matter. The list is a composition of disagreements and misunderstandings at best. Some of the passages on this list are hard to understand or comprehend. For others, a particular passage is contrary to a personal belief system or theology. This list could even reflect cultural thought, too. A verse on this list begs to be explained to the wondering mind.
Would you add a verse to the list? What’s your initial response to the question of listing the worst Bible passages? How would you handle this list in a conversation?
