Taking BM`s advice I am opening up a new thread for the theology crap.
From exodus to validate Kennas` points earlier,
23 A call for Justice:
....27: I will send my terror upon all the people whose lands you invade, and they will panic in front of you.
Pretty scarry book isn`t it?
On a lighter note from the same book of Exodus (the old testament):
7: Aaron`s staff becomes a snake.
..12 Their staff`s became snakes too! But then Aaron`s snake swallowed up their snakes.
..and from the book of Numbers
21 The bronze snake.
6 So the lord sent poisonous snakes among them and many were bitten and died.
9 So Moses made a snake out of bronze and attached it to the top of a pole. Those who are bitten will live if they look at it.
Go the snakes in the bible!
