Bible verse of the day #16

ID-100146182

This one is really hilarious, Judges 1:19

“And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.”

That’s right, the all-knowing, all-powerful God could not defeat his enemies because they had chariots of Iron. If you want to defeat God you must use iron chariots…if they are enough to stop God, imagine what nuclear warheads will do!

This just shows that the authors of the Bible do not always mean everything literally. They obviously meant that God was on Judah’s side, or at least they thought that. Like the people in the Crusades thought that God was on their side, or the Nazis thought that God was on their side. But saying that this verse is a metaphor does endanger YEC beliefs, the entire Bible could be one big metaphor for all we know!

  1. Psalm 14:1-7King James Version (KJV)

    14 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

    2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

    3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

    4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.

    5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.

    6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.

    7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the Lord bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad
