“The Lord struck the child”

2 Samuel 12:15 tells the story of how God responded to David’s adultery and murder of Uriah. He doesn’t take David’s life. No, instead God strikes the child.

It’s late, so I’m not exactly sure what to say about this other than if this doesn’t convince you that scripture isn’t inerrant, nothing will.

More to come.

  1. My mom told me I would go blind if I “struck the child” too often. It’s not fair that God gets to do whenever he wants.

  2. IIt’s late, so I’m not exactly sure what to say about this other than if this doesn’t convince you that scripture isn’t inerrant, nothing will.

    I figured it out about 1/4 of the way through Genesis I.

  3. I notice they don’t ask me to teach anymore. Either cause I hijack the class to talk about personal projects at the church, or because I hijack the class to talk about what I want to talk about at the time.

    That’s mostly an outcropping of me never preparing for the class, so I wing it. Wait! Maybe that’s why I don’t get asked anymore.
