Has anybody seen this thing? I couldn't believe their choice of subject matter! I found out about it on JWZone.org:
It's about Phineas, Zimri and Cozbi in Numbers 25. That heartening Scriptural account which "climaxes" with the description in verses 7 through 9:
"When Phineas the son of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest caught sight of it, he at once got up from the midst of the assembly and took a lance in his hand. Then he went after the man of Israel into the vaulted tent and pierced both of them through, the man of Israel and the woman through her genital parts. At that the scourage was halted from upon the sons of Israel. And those who died from the scourge amounted to twenty-four thousand."
Stuff like this in the Bible was a major factor in terms of convincing me that it's not God's Word. Sure, I was able to accept it when I was indoctrinated into taking it as something abstract: "Jehovah took decisive action," "it was time to root out evil from the midst of the congregation," "the purity of God's chosen nation was preserved," and blah blah blah.
What this really comes down to is an exceptionally disgusting and gory murder.
Boy, Phineas, was there ANY other more tactful way to express your disapproval?
Oh well. I can only imagine that the video is an attempt to use the sledgehammer to keep the flock in line. "Warning Examples for Our Day" indeed. How do they depict this revolting scene, I wonder? Considering all the years of "fine admonition" against watching R- and X-rated videos...
