It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s selection is a classic example of God attacking the wrong people.
“When any of the Israelites or any foreigner residing in Israel separate themselves from me and set up idols in their hearts and put a wicked stumbling block before their faces and then go to a prophet to inquire of me, I the Lord will answer them myself. I will set my face against them and make them an example and a byword. I will remove them from my people. Then you will know that I am the Lord.” – Ezekiel 14:7-8
It’s no surprise this god would kill those not worshipping him. After all, the god of the Bible shows us time and time again he is a vengeful, jealous, and irrational god. What’s crazy is how stupid this god is on this issue. So the people are worshipping other idols and you don’t like that. Why kill the people? If you’re an all-powerful god, then destroy the idols and destroy them for good. Take away any possible thought of an idol. That’s all this would take. Who’s the idiot here? God.
