The story of Hezekiah continues today in 2 Chronicles 30.
“The king and his officials and the whole assembly in Jerusalem decided to celebrate the Passover in the second month.” – 2 Chronicles 30:2
What to do after sacrificing thousands of animals to God? Throw a party!!!
“Do not be like your parents and your fellow Israelites, who were unfaithful to the Lord, the God of their ancestors, so that he made them an object of horror, as you see.” – 2 Chronicles 30:7
Sure…God has the power to make people believe, to show people real signs of his existence, but he doesn’t. Thus when people question and think critically, he kills them all. Sigh.
“The couriers went from town to town in Ephraim and Manasseh, as far as Zebulun, but the people scorned and ridiculed them.” – 2 Chronicles 30:10
As they should! You would do the same if couriers knocked on your door to share religion with you. In fact, you already probably do it when Mormon’s or Jehovah Witnesses knock on the door!
“Since many in the crowd had not consecrated themselves, the Levites had to kill the Passover lambs for all those who were not ceremonially clean and could not consecrate their lambs to the Lord.” – 2 Chronicles 30:17
More stupid rules from God. Some of the Levites were not clean so lambs had to be killed. What…the…fuck?!?!?!?
“There was great joy in Jerusalem, for since the days of Solomon son of David king of Israel there had been nothing like this in Jerusalem.” – 2 Chronicles 30:26
We killed lots of animals to satisfy God’s blood lust. Woohoo!!!
The Bible has become very repetitive in these chapters. It starts with kings God likes and then goes to kings God doesn’t like and then switches back and forth. What’s the real problem in all of this? It’s not the people. The problem is God.
