You gotta love the source material for fresh ideas when blogging. I believe it was Napoleon B. who said: ‘Men deserve the contempt in which they inspire me,’ so keep this in mind when I refer you to a past post with state-of-the-art comments.
So I asked people to disprove that God is very good as described in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. I asked for challengers to find fault with the narrative. There were suggestions presented, but of course, no proof; fortunately many agreed that the account is perfect, that God is indeed good, as detailed through creation.
But representing the godless, who dared to twist the lips, we have this assessment of the Creator as it regards the 1st and 2nd of Genesis:
But, hey, I’ll play your game.
As per your request: Fire has always burned flesh and water has always drowned babies.
To this I say hmmm. The sun which provides the light of day, which gives heat to they who are cold, which gives vitamins to vegetation, which delights man, which gives an umbrella for all things living, this sun, is merely fire which has always burned flesh.
And this water. Water which quenches the thirsty, this water which grows tomatoes and strawberries, this water which refreshes the labor of man, this water which is the conduit for sea transportation, this water which as the babbling brook sings notes of excellence to the ear, this water which preaches Creator, yeah, this water has always drowned babies.
Well might a man curse the rose-bush because of its thorns, or curse the summer because of heat, or curse the winter because of snow. The good lady insanitybytes22 said recently that the pain and suffering of childbirth is an elation worthy of motherhood. Scripture agrees that the pain is short-lived and immediately irrelevant when the mother holds her newborn. There is this thing called context, which when appreciated, gives an understanding to all of life.
Light, and dark. A time to work and a time to sleep. The night is not evil, and while fire and water have their hazards, they also have their wonderful blessings. I see blessing in Genesis, and I see a good God above all. You see an evil maniac? I suggest you do an inventory of your own heart.
The day the music died was not the death of Morrison, Joplin, or Valens, but was the day men said: ‘there is no God,’ for such language as fire burning flesh and babies being drowned, simply proves the waywardness and bent of the human heart, a heart which at whatever cost, will not hear the music of the night.
IF a person is honest, it is impossible to read of flesh burning and babies drowning in God’s account of creation. Do you hear? IMPOSSIBLE to a heart that is honest, and a heart that does not have a biased agenda.
I will point out the utter wickedness of such an idea that God is evil, and that His creation is evil, every s.i.n.g.l.e time. Now consider this timely word from God’s word:
With the pure, thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward, thou wilt shew thyself froward.
The last thing I would ever think of is the fact that fire burns flesh, and water drowns babies……..after reading Genesis chapters 1 and 2. Yet, this is the FIRST thing others think of? Now then, does this revelation of the human heart speak more to God’s disposition, or man’s? Be honest if you dare.
Let every mouth be stopped, and the whole world guilty before God. Oh, that men would turn the page of their hearts, and taste the grace of God. Why not trade in the deceptive and godless heart which masquerades as a sweet heart for a clean one. It’s only natural.
(P.S. It’s been said and agreed upon by others that I ‘should not have any contact with children………’ Said so many times by the godless minds who have ejected God from His own creation and rejected plain truth. Can you not see why it is necessary to speak out against such overt ignorance and pretended intellect?)
