I Kings 2:14 Elisha struck the water, it divided and he crossed over.
Elisha Struck The Water
Like Moses and Elijah, Elisha parted a body of water. What supernatural nonsense!
II Kings 2:23-24 Elisha, (God’s prophet) goes to Bethel. Some little children called him bald-head. Elisha cursed them, in God’s name, and two she bears came out of the woods and tore 42 of the children to pieces. KJV & Catholic
What? God’s hero Elisha had God send two she bears out of the woods to tear 42 children to pieces.Is this pure insanity or what? Are you sure you believe the Bible? Are you sure the Biblical God is a “God of Love”? How do you explain II Kings 2:23-24 to your children?
II Kings 4:32-35 Elisha found a dead child, laid on him, gave him mouth to mouth; the child came to life.

Isn’t this the first Biblical resurrection? Is it supposed to make up for the 42 little children Elisha cursed to death? How miraculous is Jesus’ resurrection if others had already come back to life?
How many other Biblical characters raised people from the dead besides Elisha and Jesus? It somewhat dilutes Jesus’ power and importance for some logical minds. What realist would consider this myth to be factual?
II Kings 6:18 Elisha prayed for God to smite people Blind. God did.
II Kings 8:7-15 Elisha (lied) told Hazael to tell Ben-Hadad he will recover. However, God showed Elisha Ben-Hadad would in fact die. Elisha said (to God): I know You will dash their little children to pieces and lay open their pregnant women.
There is just no room in these criminal stories for idealism and feel-good. This is not a loving God. If you believe these Bible C&Vs, how can you still support this Biblical God? Do you truly love this God? Do you fear this God? If so, doesn’t “monkey-mind” lead human morality?
Some fundamentalist believers behave as if the Bible should always be taken literally – unless its convenient not to. “I’ve made up my mind so don’t confuse me with the facts.”
Do most religions demonize others just to justify their own agendas?
God Had 2 She-Bears Tear 42 Children To Pieces?
