It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday which means it’s time for some CRAZZZZYYYY in the Bible. Today’s verses come from the book of Nahum.
“The Lord is slow to anger but great in power; the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and dries it up; he makes all the rivers run dry.” – Nahum 1:3-4
So much to digest in these two verses. The Lord is slow to anger? ROFL!!! We’ve seen over and over that God is easily angered. He wiped out all of humanity in a flood for crying out loud! I’d say he’s quite quick to anger. He will not leave the guilty unpunished? Hardly. Ah yes, burning in hell forever…sure. You aren’t going to convince me God punishes the guilty through an unobservable hell. In fact, we see over and over that the INNOCENT are the ones God punishes most frequently!
Whirlwinds, storms, clouds of dust, drying seas, and drying rivers? It’s called weather and climate change. Science tells us why these things happen. A god is not needed to explain natural catastrophes. And that flood that killed all of humanity? No scientific evidence exists to support it.
In my view the craziest part of these two verses is the slow to anger part. The entire Bible contradicts this!
