Psalm 90: Christianity: Immorality in Action!
Psalms Part 90 of 150
A Prayer by Moses, the man of God.
Moses had good reason to pray. God shoved him around for forty years in the desert. Who wouldn’t want answers!
1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.
Oh, now we live IN him?
2 Before the mountains were born,
before you had formed the earth and the world,
even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God.
3 You turn man to destruction, saying,
“Return, you children of men.”
4 For a thousand years in your sight are just like yesterday when it is past,
like a watch in the night.
5 You sweep them away as they sleep.
In the morning they sprout like new grass.
6 In the morning it sprouts and springs up.
By evening, it is withered and dry.
7 For we are consumed in your anger.
We are troubled in your wrath.
This kind of behaviour in a man or woman would be considered immoral and criminal, so why is it that Christians praise Gawd for it?
8 You have set our iniquities before you,
our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9 For all our days have passed away in your wrath.
We bring our years to an end as a sigh.
10 The days of our years are seventy,
or even by reason of strength eighty years;
yet their pride is but labor and sorrow,
for it passes quickly, and we fly away.
As it was and ever will be…
11 Who knows the power of your anger,
your wrath according to the fear that is due to you?
12 So teach us to number our days,
Do you mean to kill ourselves after a given time?
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
13 Relent, Yahweh!
Have compassion on your servants!
It would be easier for you to grow a brain and start looking after yourself instead of abrogating responsibility for your actions to an imaginary friend just to assuage your guilty conscience.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
for as many years as we have seen evil.
So what is it? Have you been bad children and deserve the punishment in which case you should just accept it, or have you been good and your god is punishing you unfairly?
16 Let your work appear to your servants;
your glory to their children.
17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us;
establish the work of our hands for us;
yes, establish the work of our hands.
You’re after a free pass for any sins you have committed or will commit in the future. That is not moral. Why shouldn’t you accept whatever punishment you deserve? What kind of a god can be bought off in the manner you attempt with all this wishy washy praise? You are pathetic and your god would be too if he really existed.
This is typical of religions, not just Christianity. Your enemies are to be punished with the full force of God’s wrath at the very instant they do wrong, are thinking of doing wrong or accused of wrongdoing by you. On the other hand, you expect to be forgiven at every turn as soon as you praise your god. This is the very extreme of hypocrisy and immorality. I detest your religion and you should too.
