    Seriously, how can it be OK for someone to say OF THEMSELVES that they are "by far the meekest and most humble person" on the earth?

    Numbers 12:3 'Now the man Moses was by far the meekest of all the men on the face of the earth'

    Yes, moses was SO HUMBLE that he told everyone about it!!?!

    Now, if sections of scripture like this don't make you go (WTF?) in your mind, then nothing will....

    just for you stuckinarut2

    "When it comes to humility, I'm da bomb, I'm the BEST baby!" says Moses.

    He was brought up as Pharo's son and heir according to the stories. I doubt this gave people humility.

    A sense of privilege, entitlement and superiority plus a warped sense of being the voice of god maybe.

    Even the authors own story, he smashed to pieces the word of god that he'd just been given. Hardly the act of someone meek and mild !

    Wait, wait... let's just take a step back for a moment...

    What evidence is there that the book of Numbers was written by Moses?

    (Not being a Bible apologist... just saying) =)

    Even if he was, where did it get him? He wasnt allowed to see the Promised Land for one mistake.

    My wife once asked some street-witnessing JWs:

    "Are you better than Moses?"

    "Of course not"

    "But even Moses was not allowed to enter the Promised Land, though he was better than you."
