Psalms Part V

Psalms Part V

     Here we go with Psalms Part V for the questions I have in regards to what is written in the Bible. If you have any answers please post them in the comments section after each posting. If you think there are questions that should have been asked please be sure to post those questions as well.

     Keep in mind that when it comes to things of a spiritual nature/religious nature it is of the utmost importance to question whatever it is you have decided to believe in, or what you might be considering believing in. Do not make the mistake of treating your belief as something cheap and useless. Take care of your belief and be very discriminating in choosing what you decide to believe in.

1. Psalm 33:13-14
     13 From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind;

     14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—

     1. If the Lord/God exists EVERYWHERE why would He need to be looking down on mankind from above the earth? Why does this verse make it sound like there is some kind of distance involved when God/the Lord is supposed to be everywhere? Wouldn't the Lord/God being EVERYWHERE negate any kind of distance between God/the Lord and man?

     2. If God/the Lord is everywhere why and HOW does He have a dwelling place?

2. Psalm 33:16
     16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.

     1. If no king is saved by the size of his army, and if no warrior escapes by his great these things also apply to God/the Lord? Why not? 

     2. Do the so-called enemies of God/the Lord know what this verse says and what it means?

     3. Is this verse, like so many others like it, simply a scare tactic to try to keep people from fighting against God/the Lord or thinking contrary to how He wants people to think?

3. Psalm 33:18
     18 But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,

     1. Why would the eyes of the Lord be on those who fear Him? Does the Lord have some kind of NEED for those who fear Him? Does the Lord feed off of the fear? 

     2. Does God/the Lord NEED fear in order to survive?

4. Psalm 34:11
     11 Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. 

     1. If God/the Lord is so beautiful and wonderful and full of power...why teach fear?

     2. What does teaching fear accomplish?

     3. What kind of vibration is released by fear, and does God/the Lord need this vibration of fear to complete some kind of purpose or satisfy some kind of need?

5. Psalm 34:18
     18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

     1. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted? Why? Have you ever been around someone who is brokenhearted? They don't release a very good vibe, do they? Does God/the Lord need bad, unhappy vibes?

6. Psalm 35:10
     10 My whole being will exclaim, “Who is like you, LordYou rescue the poor from those too strong for them, the poor and needy from those who rob them.”

     1. If the Lord is so great why would there be the need to rescue the poor and those lacking in strength in the first place?

     2. If the Lord is so great and JUST why are the poor and the needy being robbed?

7. Psalm 35:28
     28 My tongue will proclaim your righteousness, your praises all day long.

     1. Proclaim righteousness all day long? Have you ever tried to talk for more than just a few hours at a time, I mean straight talking and talking? It is very hard, isn't it? Your voice gets all rough and cracked, doesn't it? Why would the Lord want you to do this all day long?

     2. Does the Lord/God NEED to be praised all day long? Why? Why would the all great and powerful need anything, much less anything all day long?

8. Psalm 36:8
     8 They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.

     1. Sooo, the Lord feeds folks from His river of delights? This sounds totally creepy, doesn't it? Kind of like Hansel and Gretel feeding on a house of delights, right? The Lord makes mighty promises and gives little trinkets of life and splendor here and there. Why does He do this?

9. Psalm 37:4
     4 Take delight in the Lordand he will give you the desires of your heart.

     1. Oh, promises upon promises. Isn't this lovely? And people say that the Lord wants nothing from those who believe in Him. Right. What the Lord wants is the attention, the devotion...the DELIGHT of people. In fact, He wants it so badly He is willing to make gargantuan promises, isn't He? He will even promise to give you the desires of your heart, right? Not that far off from promising 72 virgins, right?

10. Psalm 40:2
     2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.

     1. This sounds like a plug for evolution, right? Lifted you out of a slimy pit? You mean like from a little bacterial cell that was undeveloped, and afterward He took those cells and changed them around a bit so you could develop legs and stand?

11. Psalm 40:3
     3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.

     1. Notice that the song was PUT into the mouth of the individual in this verse, right? Does it say the person came up with the song on their own? Nope. It says it was PUT there. Does this mean that someone's mind can be totally screwed with by the Lord, hummm?

     2. Sooo, if the Lord/God needs fear in order to live, what better way to seed loads of fear than by developing ways to control the minds of people and spreading the news of that kind of power?

12. Psalm 42:2
     2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?

     1. Is this part of the Lord's/God's mind control over man, to make man feel like he needs and absolutely thirsts for God/the Lord?

13. Psalm 46:10
     10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

     1. If God/the Lord is all-powerful and is everywhere at all times what the fuck kind of sense does it make for Him to say some stupid shit like "I will be exalted" when He is already supposed to be the ultimate, and therefore the MOST exalted?

14. Psalm 48:14
     14 For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.

     1. This is so stupid, right? How in the fuckey-doo can God be your God forever and ever is there is a goddamn end, hummm?

15. Psalm 49:13-14
     13 This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings.
     14 They are like sheep and are destined to die; death will be their shepherd (but the upright will prevail over them in the morning). Their forms will decay in the grave, far from their princely mansions.

     1. Oh look! More suspicious threats from the Lord/God, right? Why make such ridiculous threats? What does God have against the man who trusts himself? Is it because that would be taking food from the mouth of God/the Lord?

16. Psalm 50:3

     3 Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages.


     1. First things first, right? How can God/the Lord 'come' when He is already supposed to be everywhere? Does not the word 'come' infer an absence? If God/the Lord is absent in ANY fashion then He is not Omni-Present, is He? That would revoke His ultimate status now, wouldn't it?

17. Psalm 50:4

     4 He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that he may judge his people:


     1. If God/the Lord is everywhere why would He need to summon anything or anyone?

18. Psalm 50:22

     22 Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:


     1. Now why would God/the Lord threaten to not forget Him? Does He NEED to be remembered in order to exist?

19. Psalm 51:17

     17 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.


     1. Is this God/the Lord in a nutshell? He WANTS you to suffer and to be broken and to be contrite and to be simply fucking miserable so He can feed on your sorrow and misery? 

     2. So if you give your broken and sorrowful and contrite self to God as a sacrifice He will not despise you? Is that fucked up or what?

20. Psalm 55:17

     17 Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.


     1. If you believe in God/the Lord and He is so powerful and loving, why in the hell are you crying out in distress so freaking often?
