Went into a cool looking church in Helsinki the other day. Right in the center of town submerged into rock. Quite trippy.
What’s also quite trippy is Genesis 38:1-10. If you’ve read your bible you must remember this crazy story about Judah’s sons Er and Onan. Er did something god didn’t like (I’m not sure what but it must have been bad) so he had him killed. Now Er’s wife Tamar is a widow and Judah orders his son Onan to have sex with her so she can have more kids (Er and Tamar had 2 already). Onan is not cool with this cause, you know.. it would be weird to have sex with your dead brothers wife.
I know god said only to have sex for procreation but this is kinda lame imo.
Onan tried to have sex with Tamar but didn’t complete the “sexual transaction” which god didn’t like and like most other rational acts in the bible god killed Onan for not ejaculating inside his sister in law.
Make sure you don’t skip this part of Genesis when you read the bible to your kids next time.
Google “rock church helsniki” for more info about cool piece of architecture.
