Greetings from The Second Book of Samuel! Saul has fallen on his sword, David is still not king of all of Israel and is just the king of Judah alone. He’s got two wives (three technically). The Phillistines are dopin’ around like knights in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. God is a little […]Read More Hallelujer! Praise the Lort!
“Kurt…. Are you still Mormon?” A blog post in which I address the question that so many people feel the need to ask me. I had a conversation yesterday that I’ve had dozens of times in the last eleven months. I can always tell when this conversation is going to take place because it starts […]Read More Are You Still Mormon?
“Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.” – Genesis 3:23 Adam and Eve have officially been kicked out of the garden. In our Bible, the KJV, the reason for this is due to their having to choose between ignorance and knowledge, […]Read More Apocrypha Now!

Its awesome. It makes […]Read More How Did This Get Named?
“These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created…” – Genesis 2:4 Let me ask you a question… If you created a whole world would you want the people on that world to write about the time you created it and them just once? The answer is no! You would […]Read More Genesis Chapter Two – Creation Remix
It’s my first podcast! I’m thinking of calling it the Podrach MeCast & Abednego, what do you think? I really just wanted to figure out the following: Can I make a podcast? – The answer is yes. Is my voice just the worst? – That’s still up in the air. Is this going […]Read More Reliable Bible Libel Podcast – Episode 1 – Why is this happening?
Technically we should be talking about Genesis chapter 2 now but I had a really good conversation with a really good friend at work today about weiners. She had been reading in Exodus chapter 4 and was thoroughly confused about verses 24 & 25. Context: Moses escaped the Egyptians he was raised by after killing […]Read More A Whistle-wetting Weiner Story
The first chapter of Genesis, I can honestly say, is the most beautiful piece of writing I have ever read. And I’ve read Steinbeck’s East of Eden folks. The authors of the Bible were not just holy people, they were literary geniuses. The more I read the more I learn that the Hebrew language is powerful […]Read More Creationisms
