Just want to talk about something I deem very vital.
What do you have to say about “Thus Says The Lord” in the mouth of comedians?
Why is it so easy to make fun of things that pertains to God?
We do use joke to pass across our disrespect for God and try to to maintain our heritage with him.
Most times I have seen people use the word ‘The Lord say I should tell you’ or ‘thus says the Lord’ on their jokes in order to create a room for laughter.
Are we not taking God for granted when we use him to joke around. This gives me concern on how people don’t notice about their illicit attitude when it comes to the divine and at the latter, expect His blessings.
Do you know that what may make you to laugh may not seem so with God? Those things we think to joke at may not correspond with God’s own reaction as ours may presume?
The only time I see God laughs in the Bible is when God laughed at the devices of the wicked as it said here:
“Psalms 59:7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?
59:8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision”.
When He laughed at the thoughtless attitude of them who do not know His ways. We do sometime think that God’s own emotions rhymes with our own feelings.
Knowing God means not tailoring with what He hates and ascribing to His likes. Comedy has seemed to turn God a comedian which was never mentioned in the Bible we all draw our principles from.
Are we trying to keep the principles without knowing the Principal? God is our Father but He also deals with process and laws which if bridged, one has to face the penalty.
Let’s not take God’s grace as an absence of His punishment. It’s still real as before but just in a way we may not understand. We have have to mix our thought of His words.
He that is the lamb that sits on the throne is still the LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH! The compassionate God is still the CONSUMING FIRE! So let’s not take God beyond the grace limit.
