The last chapter brought us the phrase ‘lusty stallions’ and I will never forget it! Now God is ready to attack Jerusalem and punish the Israelites.
“I will destroy Daughter Zion, so beautiful and delicate.” – Jeremiah 6:2
Don’t worry, God loves you though. 🙂
“This city must be punished; it is filled with oppression.” – Jeremiah 6:6
Think this through for a minute. God is destroying the Israelites because they don’t follow his every command. To destroy the Israelites, he has hired out another group of people who don’t follow all of God’s commands. Hmmm.
“The word of the Lord is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it.” – Jeremiah 6:10
God allows rape, incest, death, destruction, and slavery. Hell yes the Lord is offensive!
“Hear, you earth: I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their schemes, because they have not listened to my words and have rejected my law.” – Jeremiah 6:19
God’s law includes lawful rape and slavery. No moral person would accept this law.
“I will put obstacles before this people. Parents and children alike will stumble over them; neighbors and friends will perish.” – Jeremiah 19:21
God once again punishes children.
There is one word that describes God: evil.
