The 9 Most Badass Bible Verses

"Sure, Moses was a great leader, an emancipator of his people and a prophet. Most people don't know that he also was the Biblical equivalent of Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher--a well-honed killing machine, able to slay from the shadows without pity or remorse. Martin Luther King may have had a dream, but Moses had a body count."

I had a good laugh over this article. But it is a little raunchy in spots, especially when dealing with the sexual proclivities of Egyptians...but then again, the Old Testament is kinda randy in general.

Notably absent though is my personal favorite, the story of Jael in Judges 4:17-21, where it recounts how a humble hausfrau (or would that be tentfrau?) with a gift for hospitality literally nailed her enemy's head to the ground with a tent stake.

Now that's badass!

My favorite one is probably where Judah was seduced by his daughter-in-law who disguised herself as a prostitute. That is supposed to be the origin of that old excuse mouthed by whore-mongers everywhere-

"It is better to cast your seed in the belly of a whore than it is to cast it on the ground."
