Ezekiel Chapter 7: Bible Study BY Atheists

Join us for a rollicking ride through the biblical doom-fest that is Ezekiel Chapter 7, where the good book decides that subtlety is for the weak and goes all in with its favorite pastime: smiting with extreme prejudice. If you thought the Old Testament had run out of ways to express its divine rage, think again! This episode of our snark-filled podcast is a deep dive into the repetitious realm of holy fury and mortal screw-ups that would make even a Quentin Tarantino flick look like child's play.

Our hosts, the ever-skeptical duo armed with irreverence and a hefty dose of critical thinking, tackle the latest chapter of Ezekiel with the same enthusiasm one might reserve for a dental appointment without anesthesia. They wax eloquent on the ever-popular themes of God's anger management issues, the art of divine overkill, and the ancient Israelites' apparent hobby of collecting detestable practices like they're going out of style.

In this episode, we dissect the ancient prophet's colorful yet monotonous warnings that could give Groundhog Day a run for its money. The biblical writers hit us over the head with a 'the end is nigh' placard so many times, it's a wonder there's any head left to hit. We question the over-the-top depictions of a God who seems to have missed the memo on proportional response, as He dials the destruction up to eleven for offenses that, let's be honest, wouldn't even warrant a misdemeanor in today's courts.

We don't shy away from controversy either. Just when you thought mixing religion and politics was last season's faux pas, we take a stab at the current affairs like the proposed Billy Graham statue in the Capitol, proving that idolatry is alive and well, and living in Washington D.C. It's a conversation that promises to walk the line between the separation of church and state with the grace of a drunk tightrope walker.

For those of you who've grown numb to the biblical narrative's penchant for violence and retribution, you're in good company. Our hosts' commentary provides a refreshing alternative to the scripture's somber tone, turning what could be a snooze-fest into a laugh-out-loud critique of the text's more, shall we say, 'creative' moments.

But wait, there's more! If you enjoy the juxtaposition of ancient prophecies and modern-day musings, then you're in for a treat. We connect the dots between Ezekiel's end-of-days shenanigans and our own contemporary experiences, proving that some things, like bad decision-making and the consequences thereof, are timeless.
