Our last look in Isaiah showed us God is a horrible parent. He truly sucks at it. Worse than the suckiest human parent in existence! Will he redeem himself in this chapter? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted,seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple.” – Isaiah 6:1
God has a chance to prove himself to everyone, but doesn’t. He could end all of this, but doesn’t. This is what you call an idiot God.
“Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, ‘See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.’” – Isaiah 6:6-7
So let me get this straight. An angel takes a piece of hot coal from the altar and puts it against Isaiah’s lips and Isaiah’s sin is taken away? Sure.
“He said, ‘Go and tell this people: ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’’” – Isaiah 6:9
God doesn’t want you to think. He wants you to be dumb and believe everything you are told.
Thus ends this short chapter. More nonsense. Here’s the problem with Christianity (and most religions in the world). You are told to believe on faith and punished if you attempt to think critically. A world in which critically thinking is punished is not a world worth inhabiting.
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 7: The Sign of Immanuel
