… for those whose theology forces them to say that everything happens by if not the direct will, then by at least the Permissive Will of God for His Good Purposes and Plans. For the Bombing in Manchester that took the lives of at least 22 Innocents, there is no God that would call that Good and a part of His Perfect Plan.
- There is no Good God that would Permit this as a part of His ‘working all things to the good of those who love God and are called to His Purposes’.
- There is no Good God that would Allow this killing for some ‘greater purpose or meaning.
- No Good God would kill or allow or permit the killing of innocent lives either on His behalf or not… there is no ‘Greater Purpose’, Plan or Meaning in the deaths of innocent men, women and children.
To the victims and families of the Manchester Bombing, our hearts, best wishes and even prayers go out to you this morning. -kia
Repulsive and Sickening
I saw a video recently on my YouTube listing that gave me pause and made me physically ill with regret that I ever Believed or Taught these things and a Christian. Take a gander and tell me what you think. -KIA
“It’s right for God to slaughter women and children anytime He pleases.”
“Everybody who dies, dies because God wills that they die”
“He will take 50,000 lives today”
“He never wrongs anybody”
“What makes the question harder is that He commands People to do it”
(ie. kill innocent women, children and babies)
“So the problem isn’t that God ended the Canaanites’ lives. The problem is that He commanded the Israeli soldiers to end them. Isn’t that like commanding someone to commit murder? No, it’s not. Rather, since our moral duties are determined by God’s commands, it is commanding someone to do something which, in the absence of a divine command, would have been murder. The act was morally obligatory for the Israeli soldiers in virtue of God’s command, even though, had they undertaken it on their on initiative, it would have been wrong. On divine command theory, then, God has the right to command an act, which, in the absence of a divine command, would have been sin, but which is now morally obligatory in virtue of that command.” -William Lane Craig
You see, if Man does Genocidal Murder of innocents… it’s Murder. If God does it, then it’s Okie Doke. Because right and wrong, good and evil, murder and justice are defined by whether God is doing it or not.
“By definition, It’s not illegal if the President does it.” -Richard Nixon
The God of the Bible is not ‘Good’ because He is good… God is ‘good’ because He does it, otherwise it’s Evil if it is evil and immoral.
Christians… THIS is the God you serve. The Biblical God is not Good, He is just God. Whatever he does is Good, Right, Just and Moral. Regardless of whether it would be Evil, Wrong, Unjust and Immoral if we did it as people… Unless of course He told us to do it. THEN we would as Piper said “… share…” in His Execution of Justice.
It’s not complex at all.
God says it
I believe it.
That Settles it.
“Insanity is when you hear voices in your head telling you wake up in the middle of the night and kill your son.
(unless your name is Abraham)
Or someone else’s Son
(Unless your name is Joshua)
Think about it…
