Those Who Insult God
by Dr. Dan Sharp, Minister of Worship
In Psalm 139:19-22 David touches on something that I have often felt. It has to do with people who insult God and do and say bad things about God.
I watch television very little, but the other night I flipped through channels just before going to bed and came across a channel that had a stand-up comedian (of sorts!) I watched and listened for about a minute. He was in the process of ridiculing God and the Scriptures and very pleased with himself.
I truly wanted God to strike him down! He was both vulgar and ignorant. I could very easily identify with David when he asked God to do away with those kinds of people! I turned off the TV thinking someday that man will be on his knees before the Lord he mocked.
How do I respond when my Lord is ridiculed? Am I offended or do I just “let it go?" Think about that.
