The Museum of the Bible is a 430,000 square feet edifice of biblical proportions, it reeks of the opulence and wealth evangelical leaders have accumulated fleecing their followers by preaching their Neanderthal interpretation of the holy book.
The museum is an evangelical enterprise born in scandal and controversy, many of the antiquities in its collection have turned out to be looted or forgeries.
The museum, located just blocks away from the Capitol, hosted a National Gathering for Prayer and Repentance on Wednesday. It was billed as a “solemn assembly, a time of repenting personally, repenting for the sin of the church and for the sins of our nation.”
The loathsome event was sponsored by the Christian nationalist group Well Versed, and the admission price was $200, breakfast not included. Not even the Pharisees of Jesus’ day would have been as spiritually depraved to charge good money to attend a prayer meeting at the temple.
But I must admit that evangelicals have a lot to repent, namely the sins of homophobia, misogyny, xenophobia and racism, to name a few. Although one day of repentance isn’t enough, they need to set aside an entire month on their knees asking God to forgive them for making a mockery of Christianity.
