Deuteronomy – Chapter 28: Blessings for Obedience

Deuteronomy 28 is a long chapter so I’m going to jump right into it.

“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.” – Deuteronomy 28:1

I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but I’ll say it again, those commands include the raping and murdering of innocent people, including small children and babies.  What a moral god the Israelites follow.

“Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you.” – Deuteronomy 28:10

A parent who rules their child(ren) with fear is committing child abuse.  God rules with fear.  He is nothing but an abuser.

“The fruit of your womb will be cursed, and the crops of your land, and the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.” – Deuteronomy 28:18

The Bible next starts looking at the curses God will place on you if you disobey.  He will curse the fruit of your womb (your unborn baby).  Does that mean God will cause an abortion?  Is God in support of abortion?  Or, if the baby is born, is the baby punished for the mother/father’s deeds?  What kind of god would punish an innocent baby?

“The Lord will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, which will plague you until you perish.” – Deuteronomy 28:22

These punishments are not minor either.  These punishments are often a slow, painful death.  Don’t make a minor mistake in disobeying God’s laws for he will smite you down with vengeance.  Are you truly sorry for what you did?  Too bad, should have thought of that while you were living.

“You will be pledged to be married to a woman, but another will take her and rape her.” – Deuteronomy 28:30

WTF?  So if a man does wrong, the woman is punished by rape?  What…the…fuck?

“Your sons and daughters will be given to another nation, and you will wear out your eyes watching for them day after day, powerless to lift a hand.” – Deuteronomy 28:32

This is another WTF moment.  What did the sons and daughters do?  Nothing!  They are being punished for the sins (supposed) of the father!

“You will have sons and daughters but you will not keep them, because they will go into captivity.” – Deuteronomy 28:41

God is serious about punishing the children as he mentions punishments for the sons and daughters twice!

“…and he will not give to one of them any of the flesh of his children that he is eating.”  – Deuteronomy 28:55

OMFG!?!?!  Now God has people EATING the sons and daughters!!!  You’ve got to be fucking kidding me!

“The most gentle and sensitive woman among you—so sensitive and gentle that she would not venture to touch the ground with the sole of her foot—will begrudge the husband she loves and her own son or daughter the afterbirth from her womb and the children she bears.” – Deuteronomy 28:56-57

More attacks on the sons and daughters who are innocent bystanders.  Even the afterbirth of a birth and the new born baby are begrudged!  Holy shit!

“For in her dire need she intends to eat them secretly because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of your cities.”  – Deuteronomy 28:57

Holy fuckity fuck fuck fuck!  Now the mom is eating the afterbirth and the baby!!!  Jesus fucking christ!

“Then the Lord will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods—gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your ancestors have known.” – Deuteronomy 28:64

Wait, so this god is so concerned about people worshiping idols that he sends people off to worship idols?  Seriously???

Wow!  Simply wow!  Deuteronomy 28 is filled with some CRAZY!!!  Children and babies are punished.  The afterbirth is punished!!!  Fathers and mothers are eating their children!!!  Seriously?  This is a god that a few billion people in the world worship???  You’ve got to be kidding me?  Read the Bible and learn the crazy for yourself!  Open your eyes!  God, as a punishment, has innocent children and babies eaten by their parents!  Is that a god worthy of your worship?  Fuck no!!!
