Sacrilegious Discourse - Bible Study for Atheists

Religion & Spirituality Podcas

Husband and Wife are two non-believers who have always wanted to read the Bible. Why would we subject ourselves to this you might ask? From our perspective it helps us understand where the Christians around us, here in the Midwest, are coming from when they quote the Bible at us. Husband is basically an Atheist and wife leans Agnostic but mostly Atheist and we're just having some fun at the Bible's expense while learning more about what our neighbors claim we're going to hell over.

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 15: The Reign of Abijam / The Reign of Asa / Asa's League with Ben-hadad / The Reign of Nadab / The Reign of Baasha. This chapter is just a list of ruler after ruler, and we def need a flow chart cuz it's impossible to recall all the names. Kings gonna king, ya know?

1 Kings Chapter 14 - Bible Study for Atheists

8/18/2022
Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 14: Ahijah's Prophecy against Jeroboam / The Reign of Rehoboam. Bad kings are bad, so God kills a kid and makes life worse for slaves, because that makes total sense. Ashirah poles return to the conversation, and shrine prostitutes enter the chat.

1 Kings Chapter 13 - Bible Study for Atheists

8/17/2022
Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 13: The Prophet of Judah Warns Jeroboam. Lions and donkeys and bones, oh my! Prophets and altars and liars, oh my!

1 Kings Chapter 12 - Bible Study for Atheists

8/16/2022
Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 12: Israel's Revolt / Jeroboam Leads Israel into Sin. Solomon's son threatens to beat people with scorpions, which, let's face it, is a simultaneously hilarious AND horrifying flex. And yikes, we did not anticipate a return to Golden Calves, but here we are.

1 Kings Chapter 11 - Bible Study for Atheists

8/15/2022
Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 11: Solomon's Apostasy and Adversaries / The Death of Solomon. Suddenly Solomon sucks! Sleazy scumbag seizes several spouses, stupidly succumbs to spiritual seduction, and supports supplications to Satan. So sad.

8/12/2022
Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 10: The Queen of Sheba Visits Solomon / Solomon's Riches and Fame / Solomon's Trade in Horses and Chariots. The queen supposedly asks some hard questions, but we're pretty sure she just wanted to know Solomon's shoe size, and permission to jump into his hot tub. Very disappointing. Also, we remain convinced that Solomon wrote this entire book himself because there is a staggering amount of bragging going on here.

1 Kings Chapter 6 - Bible Study for Atheists

8/8/2022

1 Kings Chapter 5 - Bible Study for Atheists

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 5: Solomon's Agreement with King Hiram. "When you got some trees, that need chopped down, Who ya gonna call? The Sidonians!" We also learn a bit about Ben Hur, Gone with the Wind, and work / life balance.

1 Kings Chapter 4 - Bible Study for Atheists

8/4/2022
Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 4: Solomon's Wisdom and Prosperity (cont). Pretty sure Hunger Games is based on the 12 districts named in this chapter. Samuel is likely where the "Well, actually" meme started, because my guy knows everything about everything and even tho he's done nothing wrong thus far, we kinda hate him. Come see us September 3rd at the Kentucky Freethought Convention in Louisville! Tickets are only $10 online ($15 at the door) and there will be a slew of big-name...

1 Kings Chapter 2 - Bible Study for Atheists

8/2/2022
Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 2: David's Charge to Solomon / The Death of David / Solomon Establishes His Kingdom. There's a lot of death in this chapter, but honestly, none of it seemed out of left field or over-the-top, insofar as Bible canon goes. We kinda like that Solomon is taking a decisive, tough, yet fair, stance. He killed Joab and we ain't even mad. Come see us September 3rd at the Kentucky Freethought Convention in Louisville! Tickets are only $10 online ($15 at the...
