Our long trek through Jeremiah continues. Thus far God is mad at the Israelites and says they are horrible people for not following his every command.
“Circumcise yourselves to the Lord, circumcise your hearts,” – Jeremiah 4:4
Given medicine at the time, opening up your chest cavity and cutting off a piece of your heart is likely to kill you.
“For I am bringing disaster from the north, even terrible destruction.” – Jeremiah 4:6
But remember, God loves you.
“Then I said, ‘Alas, Sovereign Lord! How completely you have deceived this people and Jerusalem by saying, ‘You will have peace,’ when the sword is at our throats!’” – Jeremiah 4:10
True. God has always lied on the topic of bringing peace.
“Disaster follows disaster; the whole land lies in ruins. In an instant my tents are destroyed, my shelter in a moment.” – Jeremiah 4:20
Somewhere there is a Christian justification for stating this really means God loves you. 🙂
“The whole land will be ruined, though I will not destroy it completely.” – Jeremiah 4:27
God loves you because he is not destroying the land, just ruining it. 🙂
How to sum this up? Oh, I know, God is a dick.
