"**** Of course, John the Revelator was [[ Good Omens reportedly ]] [[ What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? rather fond of strange mushrooms ]]..."

Removed this. This has nothing to do with the trope "Flaming Sword", and it's a comment containing a reference to a modern (fiction) book, in an entry discussing the Bible's use of the Flaming Sword trope.

Not to nitpick, but on the subject of body horror mentioned in the article, wouldn't a flaming sword cauterize the wounds it makes, leading to much less blood letting?

With actual flame, it would go beyond cauterizing all the way to first, second, and third degree burns.
