Of clarity of thought and drunken pastors

This is just too funny not to comment on. Some archaic wording of the King James Version, combined with a far-too-literal country preacher, led to some pastoral inebriation; mandated by God, no less!

Food for thought; if your interpretation doesn’t make sense there’s probably a reason for that. Try a few translations and perhaps a commentary or two. The point is to use your critical thinking spidey senses as I describe in Arguing with Friends. Think, people; just think a little!

This story is not unrelated to a previous post involving Russian Vodka. Why do so many problems in Bible translation involve alcohol? One could accept the official story or perhaps you’ll give an ear to my theory; the pastor had a bit of an affinity for the bottle and deliberately poured too much wine every communion service in order to fulfill that particular Biblical mandate. Just throwing that out there…
