Today is Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday! The verse I’ve chosen comes from the book of 2 Samuel and from the chapter discussed in a post last week.
“Before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will sleep with your wives in broad daylight.” – 2 Samuel 12:11
God is angry with David for killing a husband and raping the wife. Did God stop the killing and rape? Nope. God sat by and watched, doing nothing. God decides to punish David and one of the punishments is to take David’s wives and allow them to be raped. Um…what…the…FUCK!?!?! The women get raped. That’s David’s punishment. This is God! He’s supposed to be all-knowing! How is it not possible that part of that all-knowing does not involve coming up with a punishment that doesn’t punish the innocent? This leads us to two and only two options. Either God is truly stupid or there is no god!
