In the last chapter of Psalms David tried to tell us God is just and judges with equity. LOL! Will he tell the truth in this chapter? Doubtful.
“Why, Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?” – Psalms 10:1
Because he doesn’t exist.
“In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.” – Psalms 10:4
Hmmm…I guess that means I’m wicked. I have no room for a make believe god in my life.
“He lies in wait near the villages; from ambush he murders the innocent.” – Psalms 10:8
Sigh…the lie that you can’t be good without God. Because somehow you can only be good if you believe in a god who murders innocents, children, and babies, and rapes women. Yeah.
“Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.” – Psalms 10:12
Too late. God forgot the helpless long ago. Look around.
“The Lord is King for ever and ever; the nations will perish from his land.” – Psalms 10:16
If true, he also brought evil into this world. David’s entire plea only exists because God created evil.
“You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror.” – Psalms 10:17-18
God may listen, but he doesn’t do anything to help. Look around the world. If there’s a god, he’s not doing anything to help. Oh yeah, I forgot. God works in mysterious ways. Barf.
That concludes Psalms 10. David basically links not believing in God to immoral and evil behavior. Sorry, but according to the Bible, God is the one who brought evil to this world. Not man. Morality is not made by a book written by men trying to control the masses.
Coming Soon: Psalms – Chapter 14: For the director of music. Of David.
