Not quite Biblical

Stephan Pastis nails it again!  Click the image to be taken to a larger version at the comic’s Web site.

It may not be Biblical, but there’ve been times in my life when I’ve been sorely tempted (and may even have given in to the temptation) to follow Rat’s credo instead of the more orthodox version . . .



  1. "Walk softly and carry a big stick SHOULD be scripture." I realize that the origin is not divine but, it's guided my life.

  2. Been a while, but don't I recall that somebody got royally pissed and drove the money changers out of the temple once upon a time?

  3. Walk softly and blog about what they did later vaguely so they feel guilty and like everyone knows . . Always makes em twitch yet they can't say for sure you wrote about them . .

  4. I read through the comments on that and they are both sad and funny. The strong atheist perspective is so narrow minded that people tie themselves in knots denying logical statements. Essentially this …

    "It's not a religious statement to say that I don't believe in God because I'm not religious."

    P.S. Peter, I just finished King's Champion. Loved it. What's next?

  5. One of my 3 daily goals is to reflect God to everyone I meet. This requires I bless those who need to be blessed, curse those who need to be cursed,and have the wisdom to know the difference. Otherwise known as the: When do you turn the other cheek, and when do you overturn tables? Meek does not mean milquetoast.

  6. Zoe: "Shepherd! Don't the Bible have some things to say about killin'?"

    Book: "Yes, a great many things. It is, however, a lot fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps…."
