After a quick escape from Psalms for a few days, it’s time to dig back in.
“In you, Lord my God, I put my trust.” – Psalm 25:1
Huge mistake! Trusting God started the centuries of horrible times for the Israelites.
“No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame,…” – Psalm 25:3
Proven every day to be false.
“Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.” – Psalm 25:6
Okay, but we learned a few days ago that God considers it okay to beat you with a rod and still claim to love you.
“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” – Psalm 25:9
The Bible states that God considers murder, rape, destruction, and death as ‘right’.
“All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.” – Psalm 25:10
And that love includes being beaten by a rod.
“Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.” – Psalm 25:11
Again, we see that to love the Lord means you MUST fear him. That’s child abuse.
“The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.” – Psalm 25:14
God doesn’t love. He demands fear. He commits child abuse.
There are a few more verses, but all the above sums up this chapter very well. We are told God rules with love, but his actions and words show us otherwise. To God, love is fear. You can’t be loved by God without fearing God. Apply this argument to a parent and child. It’s not possible but to conclude child abuse is being committed. God is a child abuser worshiped by 2 billion people or so.
