OK, before you scoff, read up Deuteronomy 23:12.
King James Version: www.biblegateway.com...

It seems to say that waste should be buried, or God might step in it when He's inspecting His army at night.

Jesus never wavered that.
Apart from soldiers and Boy Scouts, are modern Christians pooping their way to hell?

For pagans it was the circle of life, and giving back to the land.

You don't eat; you starve.
You don't poop; your stomach will rupture.
There's no moral injunction about it.
It's totally natural.

Where did Jesus poop?
The big mystery about the Bible.

A pagan Roman colonial toilet where rats bit your funny bits and methane exploded?
Men said a prayer to a pagan deity just going in.
After the Romans were driven out, indigenous Europeans and Britons went back to their fields.
They didn't bother keeping that invention.

But where would Jesus Christ poop?
More likely along the lake He walked on.
A bit like the Ganges in parts (not that the Thames was much better).

But just wanted to say in all honesty, if you claim to be a Biblical literalist and you don't poop like Deuteronomy, you're pooping your way to hellfire.
Not so?

The bigger question may be...

Did he need to wipe, or did he use miracles to clean his arse?

Actually, that is a crude rephrasing of an important dogmatic schism in Christianity. Some sects believe(d) that the Christ did not incarnate physically and, by logical extension, presumably had no need to eat or excrete. This belief was considered heretical by the Roman Church, and the mainstream Protestant sects follow this interpretation. (There are still Gnostic sects around that would answer: "No, Christ had no need of a bathroom.")

Don't worry, it's probably a very fussy mod that that wrote that before the loo was invented!
To add, giving back to the Earth, they do it by the cartload here...always downwind from the farmer himself though.

Except of course Deuteronomy is an Old Testament book written to the Jews
Crikey, it's a Jewish law ?
The old covenant ( see the word covenant) was between God and Israel

The new covenant, Hebrews 8-6, between God and mankind through Jesus

I don't understand how all these people make laws up for christians like they were religious leaders of old when if they had any idea at all...
Why not argue about crayfish and pork again

I've heard the phrase "praying to the porcelain god" the day after festive drinking and merrymaking.

Maybe you're on to something.

Wacky darn Pagans.

Good questions. I'm a heathen, so I can view the idea of manure as part of the circle of life too.

Jesus seems to have had what would appear to be superstitious notions about what comes out, defiling a man.

Mark 7:18 Perceive ye not, that whatsoever from without goeth into the man, it cannot defile him; 19because it goeth not into his heart, but into his belly, and goeth out into the draught? This he said , making all meats clean. 20And he said, That which proceedeth out of the man, that defileth the man. 21For from within, out of the heart of men, evil thoughts proceed, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, 22covetings, wickednesses, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, railing, pride, foolishness: 23all these evil things proceed from within, and defile the man

It would seem that under those circumstances, a very deep hole, or even entrance to an underground stream would be desirable to get the defilement as far away as quickly as possible, maybe a ritual, "Be gone defilement. I consign your evil to the underworld."

Can I just say that I love love love this thread?

I wonder if gawd stepped in some in Eden while looking for Adam and Eve? Maybe that's why it was so offensive to him.

Indeed. I'm talking about the hardcore sects. Not people who just propose the Golden Rule - treat others like yourself. Without going into a thesis they are very selective about what they take out of the Old Testament. So they condemn me for loving another man. But they don't poop in a hole and cover it.
I think that's hypocrisy.

And yeah some of the dietary laws were arguably changed in the NT (and circumcision). But THAT was not changed.
Fundamentalists should obey and poop in a hole.
Every public park should have a shovel.
