The first chapter in Psalms with Solomon has the Israelite leader starting off strong with the supposed argument for the quiverfull movement. And by strong I mean disgusting. Can Chapter 111 top this in disgusting material? Let’s find out.
“Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them.” – Psalm 111:2
Solomon’s view of God is the same as David’s. God is apparently great no matter how much murder and rape he is directly responsible for.
“He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate.” – Psalm 111:4
Compassionate? Tell that to Job (see book of Job). Tell that to Onan who spilled his seed on the ground and God killed him for it (Genesis 38:9-10). Tell that to Uzzah, who in an effort to prevent God’s ark from falling down, touched it, resulting in God killing him on the spot. Tell that to the 42 children mauled by two bears God sent down to kill them (2 Kings 2:23-24). Sorry, but God is not compassionate.
“The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.” – Psalm 111:7
Faithful and just? I point you to the verses I quoted in the above paragraph. Sorry, but God is not just. A just god does not maul 42 children via two bears.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding.” – Psalm 111:10
Forced fear is wisdom? What a joke.
Solomon picks up where David left off. God is supposedly wonderful and great. He’s compassionate and just. The problem is the Bible itself contradicts this time and time again. The Bible makes it clear God is evil and unworthy of anyone’s worship.
