The problems of reconciling that bloody wrathful one said to be a butcher of children with the God of love.
Having been made spiritually blind through the observance of perverse doctrines of faith in what men have said of God, rather than in God alone, a priestly millstone was placed around the necks of Christians: How to reconcile a belief in a God of love, who is said to be a butcher of children?
For when the captives of that House of Bondage are confronted with vile things said of God in 1 Samuel 15:2-3, an unrighteous fear of God causes them to try and rationalize away what they intuitively know isn't just irrationally said of God, but is wickedly said. For the demands of unquestioning faith in the divine inspiration of the Bible require them to deny what is obvious. And thus, they try and justify their faith in the divine inspiration of 1 Samuel 15:2-3, by either dishonestly claiming that such things said of God is beyond their understanding. Or by claiming that although what is said of God in1 Samuel 15:2-3, may seem wicked; God nevertheless, commanded these horrific things for a righteous purpose, and shall offer every imaginable scenario of how slaughtering little children could be righteous. It is by their deceitful efforts to avoid being truthful with self and others, concerning perverse things said of God, that the priestly pollution of their minds is made manifest.
Having been lead into captivity as children, before the age of reason, their minds have become polluted through belief in a perverse doctrine: Faith in the Bible = Faith in God. For those who were lead into captivity to the Houses of Bondage were snared by priestly lies within the Bible, lies whose purpose is not to promote love of God, but promote an unrighteous fear of God. Lies which seek to prohibit sound thinking and being truthful before God in all things. A snare whose sole purpose is to serve the interest of the self-called, by compelling captives held in the Houses of Bondage to be deceived into thinking that to question what the Bible says of God is to question God Himself! And that to question God is to willfully damn one's self to eternal damnation.
Nevertheless, many who are held in captivity know better than to personalize the vile deeds of 1 Samuel 15:2-3 and other similar scriptures, for then they would be forced to confront what they are most fearful of questioning: Is their faith in the Bible absolute or conditional? For the faith of those held in bondage is like a house of cards built upon a shaky foundation.
For they know that if they were compelled to be truthful as to whether or not they themselves would have been obedient to commands of 1 Samuel 15:2-3, their faith in that perverse one, whom they were told is God, would be challenged. For if they said that they would be obedient in participating in the horrors of slaughtering defeated men, women, and little children, they are in effect acknowledging that their spiritual nature is one with the religious terrorist of today. While on the other hand, if they said they would have refused to participate in that ungodly slaughter, in essence, they are saying that they are more righteous than that fearsome bloody one whom they have falsely claimed to adore.
For the faith of those of the Houses of Bondage is not upheld by love of God, nor with truthful agreement with what is said of God, but is upheld by an unrighteous fear of God, self-deceit and dishonesty with one another in what is believed of God.
Children of God what say you? Does the Spirit of Truth confirm within your Spiritual heart that what is said of God in 1 Samuel 15:2-3 speaks truthfully of your heavenly Father?
1 SAMUEL 15:2-3 Thus says the Lord of hosts, 'I will punish the Amalekites for what they did in opposing the Israelites when they came up out of Egypt. (3) Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have; do not spare them, but KILL both man and woman, CHILD AND INFANT, ox and sheep, camels and donkey!
