“Entreat me not to leave you or to return from following you; for where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge; for your people shall be my people, and your god my god..."WHAT!? What happened to conviction and remaining faithful to your religion even when facing death? Ever since Sunday school, this one has made me shake my head.
I mean, what about Meshach, Shadrach, and Abendigo in the furnace? Daniel in the lion's den? Playing "Romans and Christians" at church camp? WHAT THE HELL, Ruth? Grow a pair, already.
But no. Ruth pusses out and gets a whole freaking book in the Bible for it. Explain THAT to me. Right place right time, is all THAT girl had going for her. AND she made it into the Old Testament, so she gets, like, double religion whammy: Jewish AND Christian. Barely missed the Pentateuch.
Even Biblical success is so subjective. Cripes.
(...Why, Lacy? The scripture lesson...?)
My grandmother's preacher wants this to be the Old Testament reading at my wedding.
I'm lobbying for Song of Solomon.
