I have to admit that I’m still chuckling from Wednesday’s discussion of Psalms 128 that introduced us to the Christian plant families! J Let’s see what Psalms 129 brings us.
“They have greatly oppressed me from my youth…” – Psalms 129:1
What is missing from this verse are the words “because God hardened their hearts.” We must always remember this. Most of the Bible does not happen if God doesn’t harden the hearts of non-Israelites.
“But the Lord is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.” – Psalms 129:4
Really? Because he’s help you murder thousands of innocent people including babies.
“May those who pass by not say to them, ‘The blessing of the Lord be on you; we bless you in the name of the Lord.’” – Psalms 129:8
Very Christian of them. If God is real, why are the Israelites no longer sharing the word of God? Why would God command this? Oh yeah, to push the agenda of poor Christians being oppressed. Without oppression the world is too nice of a place for God and his murderous ambitions.
The theme of Psalms 129 is oppression. Woe is me. Conveniently forgetting of course that the oppression is a direct result of God hardening hearts. Christians love to shout oppression. A great example is the so called war on Christmas each year. Christianity requires oppression to survive. Doesn’t matter if that oppression is real or fabricated.
