I’ve been having a severe case of the red butt recently. Naysayers cast aspersions on the divinity that’s a part of every human being. They take God working in the Old Testament and make him out to be a mass murderer of alleged innocent men, women, and children without any deference to the violent historical context of the times.
It was these alleged innocent people who were violent; they performed child sacrifice amongst other things. God tried holding out his hands to these child killers by sending them prophets to tell them to stop their evil, but they cut off his hands by killing those prophets. So, God responded by ending their violence with violence.
Nevertheless, God fixed the violence problem between himself and humanity forever when he declared peace with humanity. He did it upon comingling his divinity with humanity by the birth, life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Now, God and humanity are one entity.
Therefore, when anybody badmouths God, they are insulting themselves. If you say, “screw god,” you’re saying, “screw me.” If people insult God, they humiliate themselves. Additionally, when people insult each other, they’re insulting God.
Finally, we’re one big family, so it’s very important to love each other and treat each other with respect and dignity. We’re all special because we’re a new species of living beings that comingles divinity and humanity, which began with Jesus. I reckon that makes us Divanity. Ain’t that a hoot? And that’s no bull!
So, the next time the naysayers hit the fan, … DUCK!!!
