The Israelites didn't believe in God, so why should I?

Well, pastor maker has left a comment on my blog, which means that someone besides my mother is reading this, which means that I guess I should post some more.

Sorry I haven't written for a while. It's just that my mother got mad at me for using the phrase "bum bandit" on this blog and I got a little depressed. (I know it was you leaving that anti-bum bandit comment Mum, don't try and deny it.)

So what have I been doing since I stopped blogging? Not much. I've spent a lot of time playing video games, or at least trying to. I haven't had much luck. My gaming system isn't very good. You see, instead of buying a Playstation or an X-box I made a bit of a mistake and went and bought a God-box. It was an honest mistake. At the time I knew the most popular computer game in the world was called Halo, so I just assumed you needed a God-box to run it.

It's a very frustrating gaming system. It keeps giving me messages such as, "Your game has been saved, but you have not." And I'm not very impressed with the games available for it. Now you'd think that a first person shooter with a really cool title such as Exodus would be pretty good, wouldn't you? But I have to say that I've played a lot of computer games and I've killed zombies, aliens, dinosaurs, Nazis, terrorists and mutants, using everything from laser guns to swords, but in Exodus where you run around killing first born Egyptian children with the finger of God strikes me as being just a little creepy. And the plot is really stupid too. I mean it has God sending all these miracles to free theses slaves, including turning the Nile red, sending down flaming hail and plagues of frogs. He even sends down a flaming pillar and parts the Red Sea and drowns the Pharoh's army. But, next thing you know, they've forgotten all about God and start worshipping a gold cow. How unrealistic! Who would believe people could be so stupid? Sheesh, and people get up me for lacking faith. The Israelites got a bumper crop of miracles and they still didn't believe in God. Personally I don't see how anyone can fault me for having the same level of skeptcism about God as his own chosen people did.
