Transcript (The below is from THE PRODIGAL, January 21, 1973 and we feel it is interesting and should be passed on to those of you who do not receive this MCC publication.) While it will probably never rank with such classics as Lady Chatterly's Lover and The Tropic of Cancer, the PRODIGAL has been criticized on occasion for its frank treatment of sexual themes. These denouncers have pointed out that a religious publication should concern itself more with spreading the wor the Word of God than with such "worldly" subjects. The Word of God, eh? Well, let us look at the manner in which the Bible handles the subject. One hasn't far to look. Genesis 16.4 in fact mentions the subject very modestly: And he (Abraham) went in unto Hagar, and she conceived . . . Very modest? Yes, until one finds that a direct translation from the Hebrew gives a much more frank and open view: And he (Abraham) went gushing into Hagar, and she conceived .. And all of the "went in unto's" in the Old Testament can be translated as above. Or take for an instance the sordid affairs related in Genesis 38:1-25. (You'll have to read that one yourself as it is too long to quote entirely.) Onan spilling his seed on the ground--now we all understand that one, don't we? Or Judah taking his daughter-in-law to bed believing her to be a whore. Strange goings-on for a religious book to concern itself with. And the sad case of Lot and his daughters. In the nineteenth chapter of Genesis, the daughters say to one another: Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come into us (THAT phrase again!) after the manner of all the earth: Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they did lay with him and conceived two children who became the progenitors of two of Israel's greatest enemies, Moab and Arnmon. And how are we to judge the supposed author of the Pentateuch, Moses? Perhaps it would be good to consider the estimation given in Deuteronomy 34:7. And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he dies: his eyes were not dim nor his RUN NO MORE Sequel to the Bestselling RUN, LITTLE LEATHER BOY BY LARRY TOWNSEND author of the Leatherman's Handbook Mow available in a special, private edition., the full uncut novel. $425 „ Order direct:- Larry Townsend 52S N.

Considering the correct version for the words translated "his natural force abated", we come up with an entirely different picture of the man: And Moses was one hundred- twenty years old when he died: his eyes were good and his waters were not dried up (Hebrew idiom which means he could still ejaculate). The great king of Israel, David, makes the same use of this idiom in Psalm 32:4. . . . my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. And on and on it goes. The affair between David and Bathsheba; the Song of Solomon, and even the method for referring to men slain in a battle: . . . There was not left unto Nabal by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall. (I Sam. 25:34) But why point out all of these things? To degrade the Bible to to a Grade B novel? NO! But simply to point out that the Word of God does not pull punches but deals with the fact of real people living in real situations and does not consider doing so to be irrelevant to its religious outlook. The PRODIGAL must deal with life also. It must as a publication dedicated to God teach men how to treat their fellow men with consideration and love. And since even the Bible considers sex an important part of life, it is both expedient and relevant to deal with considerate and loving manners in relation to the sex act in a religious publication. I close with this quotation from Titus 1:15. Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure: but even their mind and conscience is defiled. --Theophilus r WANT TO DO SOMETHING TO BETTER YOUR LIFE AND HELP YOUR GAY BROTHERS AND SISTERS AT THE SAME TIME?
