Isaiah – Isaiah – Chapter 21: A Prophecy Against Babylon

Now that God is done destroying Egypt and Cush, he’s going after Babylon.

“My people who are crushed on the threshing floor,   I tell you what I have heard from the Lord Almighty,  from the God of Israel.” – Isaiah 21:10

And down go those evil babies living in Babylon.

Next up is the fall of Edom and Arabia. These chapters in Isaiah are just the names of a bunch of lands followed by God destroying them. Sigh.

Isaiah – Chapter 20: A Prophecy Against Egypt and Cush

Today we get back into the book of Isaiah and learn more about how God is unjustifiably punishing everyone in the land.

“Then the Lord said, ‘Just as my servant Isaiah has gone stripped and barefoot for three years, as a sign and portent against Egypt and Cush, so the king of Assyria will lead away stripped and barefoot the Egyptian captives and Cushite exiles, young and old, with buttocks bared—to Egypt’s shame.’” – Isaiah 20:3-4

Um…WTF?!?!?!

There are only 6 verses in this chapter and two of them focus on stripping people naked and parading them through town. LOL! A book of morals? Bahahahahahahahaha!

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 21: A Prophecy Against Babylon

John 6:70

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday. Today’s verse shows that the Jesus/God character in the Bible is not very smart.

“Then Jesus replied, ‘Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!’” – John 6:70

So Jesus, who is God, chooses a devil as one of his twelve disciples. Why? Either Jesus doesn’t know Judas will betray him, which is odd given that Jesus is God and is all-knowing, or Jesus did know and made the choice on purpose. Made the choice to have someone kill him so he could come back to life in three days to go to heaven to forgive human sin, sin that Jesus/God introduced to the world. Um…that’s a fucked up plan. Either way, more crazy in the Bible.

Isaiah – Chapter 19: A Prophecy Against Egypt

God hardened the hearts of the Egyptians to start all of this, and now there’s a prophecy against Egypt? Have they not been unjustifiably punished enough?!?!?!

“See, the Lord rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt.” – Isaiah 19:1

God has to use clouds for transportation?

“I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian— brother will fight against brother,  neighbor against neighbor,  city against city,  kingdom against kingdom.”- Isaiah 19:2

Hardening the hearts of the Egyptians is not enough for God. He punishes them further for doing bad things that God made them do. Yes, you read that right.

“The waters of the river will dry up, and the riverbed will be parched and dry.” – Isaiah 19:5

God continues killing babies and children. Babies dying of thirst…this is what God is doing, killing babies. The next several verses go on and on about all the things God will do to the Egyptians.

“There is nothing Egypt can do—head or tail, palm branch or reed.” – Isaiah 19:15

Nothing. Nothing will push God to forgive…forgive the things that he made the Egyptians do. Yes, you read that right…again.

“So the Lord will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the Lord.” – Isaiah 19:21

God is all-powerful. He could do this at any time and do so in peace.

God doesn’t care about the people. He just wants to punish and watch people suffer.

Atheism Quotes – Stephen F. Roberts

Today’s Atheism quote is one of the best out there, in my opinion.

“I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.” – Stephen F Roberts

With the millions of gods people have worshipped over the millennia, why would a single god be the true god? It’s far more likely that the Christian god is just like the other gods, non-existent.

Isaiah – Chapter 18: A Prophecy Against Cush

God destroys pretty much everything. That’s one of the key concepts in the Bible. Today in Isaiah 18 we have another prophecy against another group of people.

“Woe to the land of whirring wings along the rivers of Cush” – Isaiah 18:1

The people of Cush are about to feel God’s unjustified wrath.

“For, before the harvest, when the blossom is gone and the flower becomes a ripening grape, he will cut off the shoots with pruning knives, and cut down and take away the spreading branches.” – Isaiah 18:5

God is going to starve the people of Cush.

And that concludes Isaiah 18. God is going to kill more people. Kill, kill, kill. That’s God’s M.O.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 19: A Prophecy Against Egypt

Isaiah – Chapter 17: A Prophecy Against Damascus

In the last chapter of Isaiah God decided to punish the people of Moab, but thought it would be a good idea to wait three years. Yes, that is really what happened. Go back and read it as it’s right there in the Bible! Today we have a prophecy against Damascus in Isaiah 17.

“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.” – Isaiah 17:1

More death and destruction. When a city becomes a heap of ruins, there is a guarantee innocents are killed, including babies and children.

“In that day people will look to their Maker  and turn their eyes to the Holy One of Israel.” – Isaiah 17:7

So the Maker destroys the city and the people will look up to the Maker for hope and support? Um???

And that pretty much sums up this chapter. This loving god will destroy anything that doesn’t love him back. Toxic masculinity at its finest.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 18: A Prophecy Against Cush

Psalm 135:8

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday. We all know how much Christians like to claim God is good. Well, the Bible says otherwise!

“He struck down the firstborn of Egypt, the firstborn of people and animals.” – Isaiah 135:8

This is in a chapter praising everything the Lord does. The Lord killed the firstborn of all Egyptians, AFTER he hardened their hearts. Even if we forget the hardening of the hearts part, God killed innocent children and babies, simply because God wanted to get back at the Egyptians. God, the baby killer. Then he killed the firstborn of all animals! What did the animals do??!??!!! God, the baby and baby animal killer. God is good? Fuck that shit.

Isaiah – Chapter 16: Untitled

Death, destruction, blood, gore, rape, and slavery are just a few of God’s favorite things, as we’ve learned throughout the Bible, including the book of Isaiah. Today we look at the sixteenth chapter of Isaiah.

“The oppressor will come to an end, and destruction will cease; the aggressor will vanish from the land.” – Isaiah 16:4

Cool, if it were to actually happen. But God never frees the people of oppressors. God allows oppressors to come and go and in many cases God supports and backs the oppressors!

“This is the word the Lord has already spoken concerning Moab. But now the Lord says: ‘Within three years, as a servant bound by contract would count them, Moab’s splendor and all her many people will be despised, and her survivors will be very few and feeble.’” – Isaiah 16:13-14

The Moabites are not doing good in the eyes of the Lord, so the Lord is going to punish them…in three years. Um??? Why wait three years? You are God, if they are not doing good and they won’t do good, why wait three years?

Once again, the god of a book written by men is unable to dole out justice appropriately.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 17: A Prophecy Against Damascus

Atheism Quotes – Amanda Scott

Today’s Atheism Quote comes from Amanda Scott.

“The separation of church and state is important to me because it protects the rights of both non-religious and religious people. The same wall that protects atheists from state sponsored Christianity is the one that protects Christians from state sponsored Islam.” – Amanda Scott

Church-state separation is there for everyone of all religions and no religion. Something Christians can’t accept. They don’t understand that it is there to protect them too.
