Kent Hovind's Lacunae on Genesis ch. 3

At the very beginning of a video on the Hovind Theory, just first ten minutes:

The Kent Hovind Creation Seminar (6 of 7): The Hovind Theory
Kent Hovind OFFICIAL

Just before 7:00, notice how Hovind omits part of the Words of God to the serpent.

Basically: I will put enmity between you and the woman and between her seed and your seed. And you will sting her/his heel, she/he will crush your head.

Mary was destined from there to be Satan's enemy, just as Her Son was destined to be Antichrist's enemy. That means Mary was without sin from the first moment of conception.

"God's welfare programme is real simple: you don't work, you don't eat"

No. Not exactly. On a collective level, yes. But not on the level of every individual.

It is however "he who WILL not work SHALL not eat" - implying fasting is an alternative to work. Ιασσας, οι Ρωμαικοι! Greeks work less but also eat less than New Yorkers.

[On work:] "it is wonderful therapy"

For one taking it up, yes. Sure.

For anyone applying it to others against their will? Nimrod comes to mind.

[Note, I do not mean parents when it comes to offspring living at home.]

And as for devaluating the work that someone else is doing in order to tell him he doesn't work ... well, Wisdom chapter 5, verses 1 - 5 come to mind.

Stabunt iusti in magna constantia adversus ... et qui abstulerunt labores eorum ... ought to work on learning that passage by heart again.

It is the Epistle text for nearly any martyr who hasn't his own epistle text. In Roman Catholic liturgy. Not a martyr yet, but there sure are people who devaluate my work.

Latin and English versions interlinear:

Liber Sapientiae, caput V
Wisdom, chapter V

As for Nimrod:

[8] Now Chus begot Nemrod: he began to be mighty on the earth. [9] And he was a stout hunter before the Lord. Hence came a proverb: Even as Nemrod the stout hunter before the Lord.

Challoner comment:

[9] A stout hunter: Not of beasts but of men: whom by violence and tyranny he brought under his dominion. And such he was, not only in the opinion of men, but before the Lord, that is, in his sight who cannot be deceived.

Genesis chapter 10

Now, Challoner was telling England this, way before Wilberforce succeeded in partly de-Nimrodising England. That is why one of his sons became a Catholic. The one whose brother debated Huxley.
