    This guy is whacked out. This is exactly why so many people have lost faith in Christianity. I tried to find the passage he reference to see exactly what it says and can't even find it.

    OK, found it and yes, it does say pisseth against the wall but the context has to do with the sin and worship of idols from the house of Jeroboam and not having to do with pissing or even a literal interpretation of scripture. God is angry for these folks that have sinned and have convinced others to sin and he has indicated the wrath against them. But if you read on, you see that his graciousness is towards those who are believing and he does save them from his wrath.

    1King 14:9-10

    9But hast done evil above all that were before thee: for thou hast gone and made thee other gods, and molten images, to provoke me to anger, and hast cast me behind thy back:

    10Therefore, behold, I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam, and will cut off from Jeroboam him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel, and will take away the remnant of the house of Jeroboam, as a man taketh away dung, till it be all gone.

    Yet another preacher that decides to interpret the scripture from centuries ago, the stories told and try to apply them to our times and out lives word by word, letter by letter. I think his method of preaching is just to make himself look very knowledgeable and important...didn't work for me!

    To quote The Cho: "Someone needs to point out to these people in the Bible... Matthew, chapter 3 verse 10, where it says, 'Shut the fuck up.' That's the King James version."

    Amen to that.

    My boss sent this to me yesterday (we both worked for a gay media organization, so it's not odd that he'd share this with me). Now, I'm German and have been to Germany a few times and I'm sure I've used public toilets. I don't remember seeing any signs that you piss sitting down. Anyone been to Germany more recently and seen the signs he's talking about?

    K so i'm tracking this because I can't see the clip at work, but I must say to eb925guy, I'm very impressed. It's rare that I'll see someone, actually, define the context of a text by the text. I'm familiar with the passage and for you to have never known of it and correctly interpret it and apply it is most impressive to me. Spot on exegesis. Me likey!icon_biggrin.gif

    He should face the fact that the original Bible language wasn't English. "Pisseth" is just the 17th century English word. It is considered crude today, but it wasn't then.

    I have been to Germany and other European countries. I have never seen a sign prohibiting pissing standing up. In fact, I was in one place where it had a "urinal" that was the whole wall down to the floor and a constant stream of water running thru a trough. Guys just lined up at the wall and took a leak.

    I did see a sign in English in Austria that said: "We aim to please, so you aim to, please."
