Finally, the last chapter in Hosea! Thus far this chapter has told us God is nothing more than a disgusting being who gets his jollies off of killing innocent people, particularly young children.
“I will heal their waywardness and love them freely, for my anger has turned away from them.” – Hosea 14:4
God has turned away his anger…after killing many of the Israelites. Let’s worship this killer because he says he’s sorry now!
“The ways of the Lord are right;” – Hosea 14:9
How is that possible when God does so much senseless killing?
And that concludes the book of Hosea, a worthless piece of literary trash. A book of morals? Seriously?
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 28: Woe to the Leaders of Ephraim and Judah
The Bible tells us over and over that God loves you and his love is undeniable and the best thing ever. Yet over and over we see God punishing, harming, killing, raping, etc. So the following meme describes God perfectly!
First God is angry at Israel, then he loves Israel, and now in this chapter he hates Israel again.
“But he became guilty of Baal worship and died.” – Hosea 13:1
It’s okay to rape women, but don’t you dare worship another god!
“But I have been the Lord your God ever since you came out of Egypt.” – Hosea 13:4
And why did the Israelites need to leave Egypt? Because God hardened the hearts of the Egyptians until they did harm against the Israelites.
“Like a bear robbed of her cubs, I will attack them and rip them open; like a lion I will devour them— a wild animal will tear them apart.” – Hosea 13:8
Don’t forget, God loves you as he allows a wild animal to tear you apart. 🙂
“So in my anger I gave you a king, and in my wrath I took him away.” – Hosea 13:11
God has an anger issue 🙂
“They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.” – Hosea 13:16
It doesn’t get worse than this. This loving god is killing babies by throwing them down to the ground and ripping open pregnant women.
What does this chapter tell us? God is disgusting. He is worthy of no one’s worship. Those who worship him willing choose to ignore how awful of a god he is.
Coming Soon: Hosea – Chapter 14: Repentance to Bring Blessing
Hosea continues with this pissy god. 🙂
“The Lord has a charge to bring against Judah; he will punish Jacob according to his ways and repay him according to his deeds.” – Hosea 12:2
God is still in a bad mood. 🙂
“But you must return to your God; maintain love and justice, and wait for your God always.” – Hosea 12:6
Return to a pissy God that kills innocent people, including children? I don’t think so!
“Is Gilead wicked? Its people are worthless! Do they sacrifice bulls in Gilgal? Their altars will be like piles of stones on a plowed field.” – Hosea 12:11
God demands sacrifices, but don’t you dare do it incorrectly!
“The Lord used a prophet to bring Israel up from Egypt, by a prophet he cared for him.” – Hosea 12:13
And therein lies the problem with this god. He’s invisible. He doesn’t bring Israel up himself, he sends a prophet, showing no evidence he actually exists. Because he doesn’t.
This concludes Hosea 12. More of the same. God is mad. God is going to destroy. But God never shows himself.
Coming Soon: Hosea – Chapter 13: The Lord’s Anger Against Israel
It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday! Today I’ve pulled a verse from the book of Job in the King James Version. I’ve chosen this version as it is very different than the NIV.
“His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow.” – Job 21:24
His breasts are full of milk? Males don’t produce milk from their breasts. The NIV changes this to say “well nourished in the body”. LOL! It’s as if someone came along and said, wait a second, that doesn’t make sense! Which is fine, except Christians say the Bible is literally the word of God. Yet there are many, many different versions that say different things! So which is it? It can’t be the word of God if there are many different versions! And if the KJV is correct, God has men producing milk in their breasts! 🙂
Well this is interesting. Hosea 10 ended with God stating he was destroying Israel and now Hosea 11 is titled “God’s Love for Israel”. You can’t destroy and love at the same time!!!
“I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love.” – Hosea 11:4
Really? God says he led the Israelites with kindness, but every step of the way the Israelites suffered and many were brutally killed, including women, children, and babies. That’s not love.
“I will not carry out my fierce anger, nor will I devastate Ephraim again; For I am God, and not a man— the Holy One among you. I will not come against their cities.” – Hosea 11:9
So now God will withhold his fury and anger? After all this time? Not buying it. God has said this many times before and then he turns back to killing.
What did we learn in this chapter? God says he loves Israel and won’t harm again, but we’ve been told this over and over. God is nothing but your typical abuser.
Coming Soon: Hosea – Chapter 12: Untitled
This week’s meme conveys exactly how I feel whenever Christians on Facebook share something Christian like followed by, like and share if you love Jesus! Well fuck! Given Facebook’s algorithms, think of all those poor people who never see the post and don’t like it and therefore don’t love Jesus and therefore are going to burn in hell! LOL!
