Drunk with Blood: God's Killings in the Bible | [Steve Wells]

Drunk with Blood: God's Killings in the Bible

You've probably heard of a few of God's killings. Noah's Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, David and Goliath, maybe. But there are over 150 others that are unknown to pretty much everyone, believer and nonbeliever alike.

Publisher's Summary

Completely Revised Second Edition with 23 new killings from the Apocrypha.

Drunk With Blood includes a separate account for each of God's 158 killings. These stories fill the pages of the Bible, yet they are seldom read in church and are ignored by most Bible believers, which is a shame because God is so proud of his killings:

"I kill...I wound...I will make mine arrows drunk with blood and my sword shall devour flesh." Deuteronomy 32:39-42

You've probably heard of a few of God's killings. Noah's Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, David and Goliath, maybe. But there are over 150 others that are unknown to pretty much everyone, believer and nonbeliever alike.

Did you know, for example, that God:

  • Forced friends and family to kill each other for dancing naked around Aaron's golden calf?
  • Burned Aaron's sons to death for offering him strange fire?
  • Burned complainers to death, forced the survivors to eat quail until it literally came out their noses, sent "fiery serpents" to bite people for complaining about the lack of food and water, and killed 14,700 for complaining about his killings?
  • Buried alive those that opposed Moses (along with their families)?
  • Burned 250 men to death for burning incense?
  • Rewarded Phinehas for throwing a spear though the bellies of an inter-tribal couple while they were having sex?
  • Ordered, assisted in, or approved of dozens of complete genocides?
  • Accepted human sacrifice in the cases of Jephthah's daughter and Saul's seven sons?
  • Helped Samson murder 30 men for their clothes, slaughter 1,000 with the jawbone of an ass, and kill 3,000 civilians in a suicide terrorist attack?
  • Smote the Philistines of several cities with hemorrhoids in their secret parts?
  • Killed a man for trying to keep the ark of the covenant from falling and 50,070 for looking into the ark?
  • Approved when David bought his first wife with 200 Philistine foreskins?
  • Killed King Saul for not killing every Amalekite as he told him to do?
  • Slowly killed a baby to punish King David for committing adultery?
  • Killed 70,000 because David had a census that he (or Satan) told him to do?
  • Sent a lion to kill a prophet for believing another prophet's lie, another lion to kill a man for not smiting a prophet, and some more lions to kill people that didn't fear him enough?
  • Killed 450 religious leaders who lost a prayer contest with Elijah and burned 102 men to death for asking Elijah to come down from his hill?
  • Sent two bears to rip apart 42 boys for making fun of Elisha's bald head?
  • Killed 27,000 Syrians by having a wall fall on them, sent an angel to kill 185,000 sleeping soldiers, interfered in human battles to kill a half million Israelites and a million Ethiopian soldiers?
  • Killed King Ahab for not killing a captured king, and then sent King Jehu on a series of mass murders to kill all of Ahab's family and friends who had ever "pissed against a wall?"
  • Killed Jehoram by making his bowels fall out?
  • Killed Job's ten children in a bet with Satan?
  • Killed Ezekiel's wife and told him not to mourn her?
  • Killed Ananias and Sapphira for not giving Peter all their money?
  • Killed King Herod by feeding him to worms?

All of these killings, and more, are found in the Bible, and their stories are told in the 2nd Edition of Drunk With Blood.

    "More die at the hand of God than by Satan"
    What did you love best about Drunk with Blood?

    Steve Wells' "Drunk with Blood - God's Killings in the Bible" is a less than positive take on the Bible, not for the feint of heart faithful. When last did you read your Bible with an open mind? The capricious violence is staggering (not to mention the slavery, misogyny debauchery and homophobia) . Whereas the number of people God kills adds into the millions, Satan comes in with a pitiful score, barely breaking into two digits.

    Along the way you learn that all the attributable evil spirits in the Bible are released by God, none bySatan. Really? They didn't teach me that at Sunday School.

    The audio book is well narrated but I suspect I'll also want a digital copy that I can thumb through and to copy-paste from.

    Story
    "Sober stuff"
    Where does Drunk with Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hard to say. It is a very unique book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The true to the fact depiction of what the Bible actually says, rather than the sanitized and ultimately false depiction of the Bible as a work of love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Again hard to say, although Wells's accounts of the stories of Samson, Job and, Jesus are chilling.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Impossible not to. Why anyone would believe what is written in the Bible or would want to have such a god escapes me.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this book creates a problem for anyone who ascribes to Judaism or Christianity. The only way that most Abrahamic theists can rationalize this litany of brutality and murder is by denial, (self)deception and, dishonesty. This type of book exposes the Bible for what it is, an emperor's clothes document.

    "No Blood for Me, Thanks"

    I enjoyed the way our author gave a good (tongue in cheek) rendition of Bible verses before reading out loud the actual verses.

    It did get a bit long winded, but it was worth it. I wish Christians spent more time researching what it is they truly believe and why. This book could be a great start.

    "A must read"

    Very revealing. A Christian can't read this book cover to cover and NOT question his or her faith. Good read.

    Story
    "Yahweh is a monster."
    Would you listen to Drunk with Blood again? Why?

    No I would not read it again. I got about half way through it. Not sure if I'll pick it back up, really. It gets monotonous after he kills everybody for no good reasons and just no reason at all over and over again. I think I'd rather worship Dionisis or someone nicer.


    What could Steve Wells have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He did a great job. It's the main character and all that gets old. God smites everyone all over (continious genocide) for shitty reasons. When he's not doing it, he has somebody do it for him. Or has whole civilizations do it to themselves while the Jews watch.


    Which character – as performed by Brendan Littlefield – was your favorite?

    David seems like he got all the ladies, but he lied to a lot of people, cut off a lot of foreskins and committed lots of genocide to get there, so I don't know...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me realize none of my family has read any of the bible. Pretty much point blank. And as a child we were shielded from these stories for good reason.


    Any additional comments?

    Yea, read Dennett's 'Darwins dangerous idea,' It's tough, but has some shit that will blow your mind. Unlike the Jew god murdering people mindlessly.

    Story
    "Should be compulsary reading"
    Would you listen to Drunk with Blood again? Why?

    I wouldn't have missed this book and would not read it again. It made its point so convincingly, there is no reason to read it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Drunk with Blood?

    No memorable moment as such. The whole book is simply compelling.


    Have you listened to any of Brendan Littlefield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First Brendan performance I have listened to. Very well done.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No specific moment as such. Just being continuously amazed and appalled at the same time .


    Any additional comments?

    After a while, the book gets repetitive. It cannot be faulted for this as it is supposed to a listing of all the killings as described in the original text. It is simply there is too much killing and for the same reasons. "Do not shoot the messenger".

    "A fun romp of a story. No, wait..."

    I take my hat off to Mr Wells for giving us a clear, unambiguous and at all points, humorous look at the true nature of The Lord, the God of Love. As a book it's a great piece of work. As an audiobook it takes the story to another level. The material is fantastically well read by Brendan Littlefield and is excellently produced - there are a couple of tiny errors in the production, but these in no way undermine the point being made. I recommend this over the paper version. Here's my full review from the Amazon UK site...

    Everyone, believer and non-believer alike, should have the chance to have the 'Revelation' of the darker side of the Lord this book gives you. It's interesting that on the many occasions I've attended a church service of any denomination that this kind of stuff has never come up in the preachings from the pulpit about the God of Love. This book has opened my eyes to his dark side. Get your own bible out and read these passages. You should be astonished, if not angered that we should be expected to give grace and favour to believers of this stuff. I'm pretty certain that most believers are unaware, as was I, of the Lord's blood lust. To those in the pulpit who should be and in all probability are aware of this stuff I can only say that I'm ashamed for you. Reading this might help you understand why we continue to have terrorist atrocities happening in the 21st century - carried out of course by the Lord's most ardent believers.
