Heh, if they really knew their Bibles, the kids could have produced powerful arguments here to show that Jack's decision to break up the Israelites gang was wrong. --Nerd42 20:01, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

User:Gooey98 asked for some examples. Well I am thinking somewhat generally. The original Israelites were a militant nation. They faced physical threats a great deal tougher than a few bullies beating one kid up. David didn't give up just because Goliath could've beat him up. Faith can move mountains and can certainly deal with a few bullies if we really believe it can move mountains. I am with Jason on this. Jack should have prayed for God's protection and taken sensible precautions but not have allowed the forces of evil to force them into retreat. I think Jack's surrender showed a lack of faith that righteousness could prevail in the situation. If was writing these episodes, I would have had Jack consider surrender but not actually choose it, and I would have had somebody in the Bones have a miraculous Pauline conversion from persecuting the Israelite to becoming their leader just like St. Paul.

These have always been my thoughts on this episode since I first heard it as a child. --Nerd42 01:51, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Not that I disagree with you at all, but the original Israelite gang just went around doing good deeds. However, I do agree with you. Gooey98 ~ (talk) 20:09, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
