Hosea – Chapter 12: Untitled

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.

One thought on “Hosea – Chapter 12: Untitled

  1. Gods profit….Hello, let me introduce myself, I’m God’s profit and here’s my card.

    Israelite…..pleasure to meet you. That’s a very official looking card you’ve got. Direct from god you say. Well, do we need a scribe or will you be passing out the text of gods messages.

    Gods messenger….no, nothing like that. I’ll tell you and you tell others and eventually it’ll get written down. The more the story’s are told the message becomes even more impactful because the message will them comport with doctrine.

    Perfect!
