i told my mom that god has killed babies in the bible and she didn’t believe me so i searched it up and to my surprise
there’s a list???
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
in conclusion god is an asshole
okay well I mean ten murders is still bad though so
god gambles with your souls pass it on
God killed everyone on earth, minus 8 people, because they were either no longer fully human (nephilim) or were just completely violent and corrupt. The fallen angels tried to corrupt woman’s seed because of God’s prophecy regarding Jesus.
God killed many Jews for many things, because they asked to be put under a do-good-get-good-do-bad-get-beat system, the opposite of the covenant God wanted to establish with them. 10 commandments, as well as the rest of the law, keep them all always to be blessed, break one to be cursed. Complaining=blasphemy. The law is impossible to keep, that’s the whole reason God accepted animal sacrifices (as a shadow of what Jesus would do).
God had Israel wipe out entire tribes of people, including babies, for the same reason he sent the flood. Those tribes were the devil’s attempt at another nephilim outbreak, thus the giants.
God let satan have his way with Job because Satan had a right to, having usurped Adam’s authority. God expressed His confidence in Job, but could not legally prevent the devil. Something Job wished for was a counselor, what Jesus is for us today, someone who would clear any legal right the devil has against us(our sin).
God is not an asshole gambling with our lives. God is light and love, and so loved the world that He came as a man to take all the punishment man has ever and will ever deserve. Evil lingers only because the enemy continues to blind the world to Jesus’ finished work in saving us, taking advantage of humanity without letting it know its rights in Christ given as a gift.
The enemy continues to do the only thing it can: lie about God. Satan would present Him as stingy, cruel, trigger-happy, and demanding. God loves us as we are, and gave everything He had to be able to legally bless us in spite of all our missed-marks. What He’s done in judgement, He’s done legally and righteously, even though it hurt Him to do it.
does anyone remember that episode of the powerpuff girls where mojo turns everyone in the world into dogs? And a sequel episode which was almost the exact same thing shot for shot with a slightly different ending? I haven’t felt more cheated.
I WAS JUST CLEANING OUT MY BIBLE AND I FOUND THE MOST HILARIOUSLY PETULANT PARABLE
jesus is PISSED
it’s not FIG SEASON
he’s PREPARING TO DIE
so he curses a fucking tree.
Go home Jesus. You’re drunk.
maybe all this time the saying is god hates FIGS
I don’t blame anyone for reacting the way they have, because much of the bible out-of-context sounds like this. Let me put it into context.
The first mention of fig leaves is when Adam and Eve made loin coverings for themselves after they saw they were naked (genesis 3:7). They were originally clothed in God’s glory(psalm 8:5).
Fig leaves speak of self righteousness, “I am good enough to cover myself with my own works”. Jesus cursed a fig tree that produced no figs as a picture for us to learn from. Self righteousness does not produce fruit, and is cursed to die. Later when the disciples see the withered tree, Jesus teaches on faith and God hearing your prayer(mark 11:22-25). In other words, God doesn’t answer prayers until you curse self-righteousness in your life.
God’s response to Adam and Eve’s nakedness (after explaining the consequences of their action) was to kill an animal and clothe them in it’s skin(genesis 3:21), a picture of the only way to cover sin(death of an innocent) and what he was planning on doing via Jesus.
(Certain fig trees produce a crop of fruit before the proper season. If they fail to do so, it will not produce any in the proper season either. It’s a barren tree.)
