24. Jesus Likens Heaven to 10 Virgins

Matthew

25:1

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

WHY in the world would a man so holy, a man who has never known woman, use the concept of a virgin to describe how great heaven will be?

 

Who but a Taliban-like man could have authored that bit of nonsense?

It's because this passage, like all the others, was written by people with a Taliban mindset. Islam has upped the reward to 70 virgins but the point is, the idea of a virgin being the epitome of joy is universal and even Jesus used it because his mindset was just like any other Taliban mindset.
