What Happens When Young Idiots Mock Godly Leaders?


What Happens When Young Idiots Mock Godly Leaders?

1 MIN READ ◦ DOUG GILES

The Elisha & The Bears oil painting shows what happened to young folks who mocked a godly leader.

"Then Elisha went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!” When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number."
- 2 Kings 2:23-24

Yikes, eh? This painting serves as a great reminder for mouthy GenZers who're currently defying God and His people. Someone should airdrop thousands of these prints on every college campus! This piece will be featured in my forthcoming, full color, coffee table book, featuring my Biblical Badass Collection. Publish date is Christmas 2024. The original is currently available.

This "Vision For The Lost" Will Mess With You 9 MIN READ ◦ DOUG GILES What you’re about to read will mess with you severely. Especially if you are a solipsistic evangelical. For the uninitiated, William and Catherine Booth founded The Salvation Army back in 1865. The Salvation Army they founded and operated was not a quaint organization that helped folks that were down on their luck.
