When Comments Become the Article

Updated on August 12, 2018

Comments sometimes deserve their own article! The provocative and humorous ones have a story to tell. Each story is different.

Napping in Church

I was sitting at church an hour ago wondering what to do because I could not keep my eyes open. It is not that the speakers were boring. They were actually quite interesting. One of the young men in my congregation is getting ready to serve as a missionary. He, his aunt, and his friend's dad all stood to talk about how wonderful sharing the gospel is. I agreed with them. The reason why I could not stay awake was because I was hungry! My body figured it would shut down rather than give me the energy to keep my head up.

I was sitting on the front row too. They probably thought I was so rude! It is a good thing we were in church so they can practice forgiveness.

I would really like to see a hub about this because it is interesting dogma.

The purpose of this article is to be funny. It can cause you to laugh out loud or smirk a bit. It may offend you a little depending on how well I put the words together without you wanting to strangle me or someone who looks like me (preferably neither, but the latter if you are so inclined).

Every article that I have deleted over the years had some good comments in them. Some of them were profound. Others were just nasty. I will take some of the ones I think are mention-worthy and put them here for you to peruse. Comment if you like it and put why. Your comment might go up in a future article.

Is it shameful that I am using my old hub comments to come up with articles?

Cain had some issues, that's all.

In an article I wrote five years ago that I had to delete after updating the information, a Hubber by the name of Mark (leaving out full names and tags to protect the person) suggested the oddest thing as were talking about Cain and Able. I suggested that Cain was the son of birthright, which is why he was so "irked" that Abel replaced him in the role because he was more compliant to God.

Said he,

I am touched by this hub. Cain is so proud of himself. I understand why some siblings have their personal fight.

Personal fight! It was the first murder! I mean, yeah, he still had issues and what not. I responded,

Thanks for reading and commenting Mark. Cleon Skousen, one of my favorite religion writers introduced me to the world of ancient discovery from a Christian and faith-based perspective. I tend not to want to approach a religious subject from the assumption that it is folklore when I actually believe it.

Skousen put the thought in my head that Cain was the birthright son and I went with it. It made sense as to why God would speak to him since he would have been the next spiritual leader of the human race had he repented as the Lord instructed him--well, before Abel was born and given the birthright.

Is it shameful that I am using my old hub comments to come up with articles?

Okay, so... Blacks and Jews according to this Serpent Seed Doctrine are the children of Eve and Lucifer

Serpent Seed Doctrine

This one was not funny ha-ha, but it is funny sounding. Another comments in the same article as the first featured in this hub is the following contribution from Sam about the origin of Black, Jewish, and White people. I am going to say upfront that I do NOT, just as he did not, support this view!

I [Sam] have heard of those racist teachings about Black people, Jewish people or White people being of Cain's seed. It's known as the Serpent Seed doctrine, which is the belief that Cain was in fact the son of Satan and that his seed is still alive today. This belief is most commonly used to try to use the Bible to justify racial hatred towards other races of people, specifically Blacks, Whites and Jews.

In the case of Blacks and Jews, it is believed that the forbidden fruit was in fact sex with Satan and that Cain was Satan's son and that his seed is alive today in the form of Blacks and Jew who are conspiring to keep it a secret.

Okay, so... Blacks and Jews according to this Serpent Seed Doctrine are the children of Eve and Lucifer because Eve had sex with the devil, which was the forbidden fruit. (I'm just going to say right here that sounds ridiculous.)

Did Adam also have sex with him since he partook of the forbidden fruit too? I'm just saying. Are we finding justification for the Adam and Steve thing here? Was it specifically sex with Eve that was forbidden or Lucifer? Anyway, let's continue with the comment.

DNA Test shows who is the daddy

In the case of Whites, it is believed that Whites are Edomites or the children of Esau who had sex with a child of Cain who was the son of Satan. They also believe that Esau was stricken with leprosy which they believe explains why Whites are white. They even use the belief (or fact whichever way you look at it) that Whites have Neanderthal DNA as proof.

Hold on now. So Black people and Jews are the seed of Cain whose mother slept with Lucifer in the garden. White people come from Esau, the leper, who slept with one of Cains satanic descendants. So, that means that every body is the spawn of Satan! Seth was the third son after Abel's death that Adam and Eve talked about. Who did he sleep with?

And, neanderthal DNA..! Is this like a rip at White people being sub human? Who believes this stuff?! Sam, please finish. I am too through with this.

To people who believe and teach this doctrine it is all truth, though. This is really all just poor Biblical interpretation. The doctrine itself has too many flaws that don't match up with what the Bible says. It's just used to try and justify racial hatred towards other races of people by teaching that they can't be saved by Christ due to their Satanic DNA.

This is what I told Sam in response:

Sam, you should write an article about that! I have heard some of what you are talking about but I received an education just in this little tidbit that you provided here.

I would really like to see a article about this because it is interesting dogma. It goes beyond a simple reference that I have heard about Cain and his suppose escapades with monkeys. Thank you for reading a commenting.

NO! I don't believe any of it! It is funny, though, right? Sam has not wrote that hub yet either. It has been five years! Really, Sam?

TTFN

That is it for this time. The plan is to come out with these every week if it does not violate any Hubpages policies. Also, do not forget to comment. You may find your words in my next article!

      Good looking out Ann. If it was a typo, I am glad that I can count on you to help. God knows I need the help!

      I see! I just thought Adam & Steve was a typo - sorry! That's why I thought it was funny!

      I understand what you're saying.

      Interesting article, Rodric.

      Ann, I hope that is not too offensive to some. My kids always argue about God not making Adam and Steve when it comes to same-gender issues. This Serpent Seed Doctrine is the closest thing to supporting that such a relationship could have occurred. Adam and Eve supposedly partook of the forbidden fruit. If that fruit was having relations with Lucifer... it makes sense too me.

      I am not saying that I understand and agree with all the politics of it all. I believe in kindness and love for all of humanity regardless of gender attraction. I just thought that Adam and Steve bit was funny. I don't buy that Serpent Seed business for a second, though.

      I have to mention one thing which made me smile (in a nice way; I'm not getting at you Rodric). In the second paragraph under the Adam & Eve picture in the Garden of Eden, you mention Adam and Steve - is this a new combination?! Sorry, couldn't resist it!

      Interesting stuff - I often wonder how people manage to interpret the Bible in so many different ways, some of which appal me.

      Thanks Eric. It looks like you need to have a third thing in Peoria that happens because all good things come in threes and sevens I am told. Bill is a good chap. You are a good yardstick yourself!

      Very well done friend. I like the writing concept and I applaud it's boldness.

      How us humans are to argue our point against yours. Delightful really. We love diversity.

      Did I tell you that I got my first Chow Chow in Peoria Az and my mom came from near Peoria Illinois?

      Bill my man loves you. He is a good yardstick.

      Thanks for commenting and reading John. I borrowed the idea from Bill Holland. He is my favorite Hubber of all time because of his Mailbags. Also, his When the Corn Died, series makes me a mega fan. I have only one of his books, but that is besides the point.

      He is up to 215 mailbags answering questions that we leave in the comments. I decided to see if that concept works for me.

      Rodric, this was very interesting and a very good concept to use notable comments to write an article. I had never heard of these beliefs but racists need something to refer to to fuel their fire I guess.
