Psalms – Chapter 85: For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

Our quest through the book of Psalms during the time of David continues.  Today’s chapter is Psalms 85.

“You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.” – Psalms 85:2

WTF?!?!  God did not forgive sins.  He punished people over and over.  Several times the Bible tells us God punishes children, grandchildren, and several more generations for the sins of their ancestors!  That’s the opposite of forgiveness!!!

“You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.” – Psalms 85:3

Again, not true.  God is full of anger during this time in the Bible.  This anger continues in the New Testament with Jesus as well.  God never sets aside wrath and anger.

“Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?” – Psalms 85:4

Yes.

“I will listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants—but let them not turn to folly.” – Psalms 85:8

I’m sure you will.  And when God commands you to kill babies, you’ll listen and do it.  That makes you just as evil as your evil make believe god.

“The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.” – Psalms 85:12

Okay, but what about the years and years of famine?  Is that also part of God’s good?

Psalms 85, like most other chapters in Psalms, has many verses that are directly contradicted by multiple verses in the Bible.  To put it simply, the god of the Bible is NOT good.  He is NOT just.  He is NOT forgiving.  He does NOT love.  That’s not me saying that.  That’s the words of the Bible saying that.

Coming Soon:  Psalms – Chapter 87:  Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. A song.
