Today is not our last chapter in Psalms, but our last chapter for a few days as we next move to 2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles for a few chapters.
“The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.” – Psalm 99:1
True, according to the Bible. This god rules by fear and unjustly punishes the people of the land. This god is a horrible parent guilty of extreme child abuse.
“The King is mighty, he loves justice—you have established equity;” – Psalm 99:4
ROFL! Again, a direct lie proven by the actual actions described in the Bible. There is no justice and there is no equity.
“Lord our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds.” – Psalm 99:8
A forgiving God? How many Israelites died due to God’s forgiveness? How many babies and children were brutally murdered? How many women (and men) were raped? And let’s be clear, babies and children committed NO misdeeds to deserve this ‘forgiveness’.
That concludes this chapter of Psalms. God’s forgiveness is death, rape, and destruction. No one deserved this. God is an asshole and far less moral than you or I. In fact, God is the most immoral character in the Bible.
Coming Soon: 2 Samuel – Chapter 24: David Enrolls the Fighting Men
This Sunday’s Atheism quote is another excellent one from Matt Dillahunty, a very prominent activist in the Atheist community and co-host of the Atheist Experience podcast.
“I’ll live for me and for other real people. Until some god gives me five minutes of their time…they deserve none of mine.” – Matt Dillahunty
Very well said. What kind of god expects you to follow all of his rules and do everything he says, without once appearing or actually speaking to you? An asshole god that is not worth anyone’s worship. Either there are no gods or existing gods are assholes. Either way they deserve not a single second of my time.
Psalms, Psalms, Psalms. It’s raining Psalms! Soon, I promise you, we’ll be done with the book of Psalms. For now though, we need to take a look at Psalm 98.
“Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous thing; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.” – Psalm 98:1
Several things to say here. First, what marvelous thing has God done? Second, I think the Bible is telling us God is right handed and masturbates to his own salvation? Interesting.
“The Lord has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.” – Psalm 98:2
Except he hasn’t made himself known. He made himself known to Moses, supposedly, but what evidence is there God met Moses? Or did Moses make the whole thing up to control the people? Hmmm….
“He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.” – Psalm 98:9
ROFL! LMAO! LOL! Give me a minute to stop laughing here. God judges in righteousness and equity? Give me a fucking break. Read the Bible and you quickly find out this is not true. Read the book of Job. There’s no righteousness and equity in that book and it is just one of MANY examples proving God is not righteous and has NEVER ruled with equity in the Bible.
Sorry, still laughing after reading that last verse. It’s not the first time we’ve seen this in Psalms and probably will not be the last. It’s just hysterical that the authors of the Bible added this and kept in all the horrible, contradictory things God did to harm the people of the land. These examples make it very clear there is no equity in God’s world. Fortunately for us, however, God does not exist.
Coming Soon: Psalm – Chapter 99: Untitled
Today we take a look at the 97th chapter in Psalms. This is definitely the chapter in which God apologizes for all the harm he’s done. Right? Can’t fault me for wishful thinking. 😊
“Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.” – Psalm 97:2
I hope God has an umbrella because it’s about to rain on him!
“Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.” – Psalm 97:3
Remember that the Bible tells us God created evil in this world. This is like taking credit for putting out the fire you intentionally started.
“Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.” – Psalm 97:10
Again, God is the one who created evil, according to the Bible. See Isaiah 45:7 if you wish to see the evidence. So saying that those who love the Lord hate evil states that you are loving the very being who created evil in this world according to the book you worship.
This is a chapter filled with one big contradiction. Love the Lord if you hate evil, but wait, by doing so you are loving the one who created the evil you supposedly hate. Hmm….
Coming Soon: Psalm – Chapter 98: A psalm.
Yes, it’s December and we are more than a month removed from Halloween, but there are so many zombie related verses in the Bible that I can’t stop just yet! Thus for Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday I bring you yet another verse on zombies in the Bible.
“At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.” – Matthew 27:51-53
Zombies roaming the land! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the Bible is an early attempt to introduce zombies in main stream entertainment culture. 😊
Who’s ready to praise God and share his love to others? Raise those hands high!!! Higher!!! Raise those hands all the way up to the Lord!!! Sorry, just getting in the right mood to read another chapter in the book of Psalms. 😊 Let’s take a look at Psalm 95 today.
“In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.” – Psalm 95:4-5
Evidence please? I have evidence for how water came to be on Earth and how mountains are formed. But I have no evidence God did these things.
“Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness, where your ancestors tested me; they tried me, though they had seen what I did.” – Psalm 95:8-9
Wait, don’t harden your hearts? Seriously? NONE of this happens if God doesn’t harden the hearts of the Egyptians. Maybe you should turn to God and tell him to stop hardening hearts.
David’s anger at the people hardening their hearts is misdirected. God started all this by hardening hearts. David needs to re-direct his anger at God.
Coming Soon: Psalm – Chapter 97: Untitled
This marks the 800th post on this blog, which I started about three years ago near the end of 2014. To celebrate this arbitrary number, I’ve found a great quote from Bill Nye.
“If you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that’s fine, but don’t make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can… we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.” – Bill Nye
Bill Nye is right. Teaching your kids to deny science does nothing but harm them and the society they live in. It sets your kids back and as a result, sets back society.
