1 Kings 14:17

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse shows that God is NOT just.

“Then Jeroboam’s wife got up and left and went to Tirzah. As soon as she stepped over the threshold of the house, the boy died.” – 1 Kings 14:17

To be fair, you need to read 1 Kings 14 from the beginning to get the full story.  God is angry at the Israelites and as punishment will kill every male in this town.  Even if we assume this was an evil town (again, little evidence of this), God just killed a boy.  A child.  God killed a child because he was in a pissy mood.  This is not a just god.  This is an evil god.  This is a god NO ONE should worship.  The Bible makes this very clear.  Actions speak louder than words and God’s action in this verse was to kill a child.

1 Kings 17:21

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday AND Halloween!!!  To celebrate the occasion, let’s look at a verse that is very Halloween-esque.

“Then he (Elijah) stretched himself out on the boy three times and cried out to the Lord, “Lord my God, let this boy’s life return to him!” – 1 Kings 17:21

A dead child is raised from the dead!!!  A miracle?  Of course not!  This clearly did not happen.  The dead do not rise.  Zombie movies are great, but believing in zombies in real life is another issue.  You can’t bring people back from the dead.  You can’t do it now and you couldn’t do it in Biblical times.  Maybe, just maybe, the people of biblical times loved Halloween!
