Ezekiel 9:5-9 Muslim Accuses God of Murdering Babies
A MUSLIM who uses the name Mask Rider Black posted in my Facebook Timeline where I criticized the killing of babies in the name of "progress":
THIS MUSLIM POSTED:
"The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird, for your children will die at birth or perish in the womb or never even be conceived. Even if your children do survive to grow up, I will take them from you. It will be a terrible day when I turn away and leave you alone. I have watched Israel become as beautiful and pleasant as Tyre. But now Israel will bring out her children to be slaughtered." O LORD, what should I request for your people? I will ask for wombs that don't give birth and breasts that give no milk. The LORD says, "All their wickedness began at Gilgal; there I began to hate them. I will drive them from my land because of their evil actions. I will love them no more because all their leaders are rebels. The people of Israel are stricken. Their roots are dried up; they will bear no more fruit. And if they give birth, I will slaughter their beloved children." (Hosea 9:11-16)
AYAN TURO NG BIBLE PATAYIN ANG MGA BABIES
"Kill Men, Women, and Children
"Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, "Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple." So they began by killing the seventy leaders. "Defile the Temple!" the LORD commanded. "Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill! Go!" So they went throughout the city and did as they were told." (Ezekiel 9:5-7)
Mask Rider Black, WHY DO YOU, a MUSLIM, QUESTION the WILL and COMMAND OF GOD? Are MUSLIMS TAUGHT to CRITICIZE the WILL and ORDERS of the ALMIGHTY?
Sadly, YOUR CRITICISM of GOD is based on an IGNORANT READING of Hosea 9:11-16 and Ezekiel 9:5-7.
But to show YOUR UNWITTING CRITICISM and CONDEMNATION of GOD let us examine the text in Eze 9:5-7.
The text is part of a VISION given by God to Ezekiel. God is showing His prophet how He would PUNISH JERUSALEM and its inhabitants for the ABOMINATIONS and IDOLATRY taking place in the city around the reign of Jehoiachin. (597 BC)
In Eze 9:5-7, God is telling Ezekiel that when Jerusalem falls everyone living in it--"old and young, girls and women and little children," except those faithful to God--will die.
And that is what happened when Babylon attacked and destroyed the city around 586 BC.
In short, God is showing Ezekiel what would happen when WAR FALLS ON JERUSALEM, meaning PEOPLE WILL DIE. And it does not matter whether they are old, young, man, woman, or child.
Isn't that what happens during war?
YOUR CRITICISM of GOD means YOU BLAME GOD whenever CHILDREN or BABIES DIE DURING WAR.
WITHOUT THINKING, YOU CONDEMN GOD for PUNISHING THOSE--and their CHILDREN--who COMMIT ABOMINATIONS AGAINST HIM.
YOU are CALLING GOD a MURDERER and a RUTHLESS KILLER whenever A BABY of CHILD DIES DURING TIMES of CONFLICT or WHEN HE PUNISHES THOSE who GO AGAINST HIM.
I thought Muslims are taught to say INSHALLAH. But what kind of INSHALLAH are you saying when YOU ACCUSE GOD of BEING a COLD-BLOODED MURDERER every time HE ALLOWS CHILDREN to DIE IN WAR?
That is ISLAMIC THINKING FOR YOU.
