Pissing against the wall


This blog post was published on Monday 10 March 2008.

I’m not sure if this is very funny or extremely sad, but I found a video of a Baptist preacher preaching talking about the phrase ‘pisseth against the wall’ from the King James.

Baptist preaches on KJV “him that pisseth against the wall”

This is the verse he preaches from:

Therefore, behold, I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam,
and will cut off from Jeroboam him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel, and will take away the remnant of the house of Jeroboam, as a man taketh away dung, till it be all gone.

1 Kings 14.10 (KJV)

From this verse the preacher’s message is that real men (as opposed to ‘males’) urinate standing up.   The problems in America are caused, it seems, by men urinating sitting down.   How he manages to ignore the fact that in the context of this verse is that urinating standing up is not a good thing: doing it will get you ‘cut off’ from the people of God.   I don’t claim to understand what’s going on here, but I’m pretty sure it’s not what this guy says!

He also uses manages to rant about how the King James is better than all other translations, for saying ‘males’, editing out ‘Hell’ and ‘Jehovah’ (which is the name of God).   From a bit of research on the internet it seems that this isn’t the only strange thing this guy has said.
