In the last chapter of Psalms I discussed, it is made clear God watches EVERYTHING you do, but sits by and does nothing when rape, abuse, and molestation takes place. Such a wonderful, loving God! What will we learn in Psalm 143? Let’s find out.
“Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness, come to my relief.” – Psalm 143:1
We learned in Psalm 139 that God watches and sees everything. So why is David asking God to listen? Of course God is listening. You just said so in a previous chapter! The bigger question is why God listens and then does nothing. Maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t exist!
“Answer me quickly, Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit.” – Psalm 143:7
Again, the most logical reason for God not answering is God doesn’t exist. Or he’s an asshole. You make the choice. An asshole god or non-existent god?
“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.” – Psalm 143:10
The Bible provides much evidence that God’s will often includes rape, murder, and slavery. You want to be taught these things?
“In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.” – Psalm 143:12
God’s unfailing love includes the destruction and silencing of others? LOL! The Bible is a book of morals? That’s ridiculous.
Another chapter in Psalms where we see David describing God as this great and might being that loves everyone equally. The rest of the Bible, however, shows the true nature of God. God is evil, hateful, and everything BUT love.
Coming Soon: Psalm – Chapter 144: Of David.
