Micah – Chapter 3: Leaders and Prophets Rebuked

Our trek through Micah continues today with God getting pissy at more people. In other words, the same as every chapter in the Old Testament. 🙂

“Should you not embrace justice, you who hate good and love evil; who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones; who eat my people’s flesh, strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces; who chop them up like meat for the pan, like flesh for the pot?” – Micah 3:1-3

Wow…chopping people up like meat for a pan, huh? Maybe God should do something about that? Maybe he should have done something about that well before it happened!

“Then they will cry out to the Lord, but he will not answer them.” – Micah 3:4

How does this differ from God on a normal day?

“As for the prophets who lead my people astray,” – Micah 3:5

Again, how do we know Micah is not also a false prophet in this story? There’s no evidence supporting his claims.

“Therefore because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble,  the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets.” – Micah 3:12

And God once again destroys large swaths of land. Instead of targeting individuals who do evil, God chooses to punish everyone. Sigh.

In this chapter Micah continues saying he is a true prophet and other prophets are false, but where is the evidence?

Coming Soon: Micah – Chapter 4: The Mountain of the Lord
