Anti-Bible Anti-God Comment Claims that God supported child abuse in Judges 11:29-40

 

If you have not read Stories Versus Truth, you may want to read that before reading this. And don't forget where you are going. You get past the questions/attacks so you can proclaim the Gospel. It is the proclamation of the Gospel, not argumentation, that transforms minds. See Give Them the Gospel.

Comment:

"... read about god supported child abuse in Judges 11:29-40..."

Answer:

(Read the article that prompted this comment HERE)

(See the entire comment with shortened answers HERE)

One may wonder what kind of warped mind would extract such an insane interpretation from reading the actual text. The answer is that people who do such things are under the power of Satan. The human mind was designed and built to be filled with the flowing water of God's Spirit, the Spirit of Him Who is Love. It doesn't work properly without that Anointing of the Holy Ghost that flows from the Throne of God. Moment by moment, every person should be in that Flow, directed into His Divine Righteousness, and moving in submission to God.

The lie here is that God supported child abuse in Judges 11:29-40, when this is clearly not the case. The oath of Jephthah is one more example of a godly man who made a mistake. The apostle, James, said that we all make many mistakes, including him and the other apostles. King Saul made a foolish oath that would have cost him his son, but he realized it was foolish and did not carry it out. God didn't judge Saul for not killing his own son as he had vowed to do. God did judge Saul at a later time for Saul's pride, which made Saul useless to God.
Note that the commenter again uses Neurolinguistic Programming presupposition in the phrase: "read about." The commenter also neglects to capitalize God, probably as a way of showing contempt since a proper name should always be capitalized.

Human beings are evil by nature. They support child abuse by nature. There is a natural affection that God created into humanity, but the evil in the hearts of men and women overcomes natural affection in many cases unless Christ rules over the heart. Judges 11:29-40 makes no such statement. The commenter is lying.

 

11:29 Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah, and he passed over Gilead, and Manasseh, and passed over Mizpeh of Gilead, and from Mizpeh of Gilead he passed over to the children of Ammon.

11:30 And Jephthah vowed a vow to the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands,

11:31 Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD'S, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.

11:32 So Jephthah passed over to the children of Ammon to fight against them; and the LORD delivered them into his hands.

11:33 And he smote them from Aroer, even till thou come to Minnith, even twenty cities, and to the plain of the vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel.

11:34 And Jephthah came to Mizpeh to his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter.

11:35 And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth to the LORD, and I cannot go back.

11:36 And she said to him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth to the LORD, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon.

11:37 And she said to her father, Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains, and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows.

11:38 And he said, Go. And he sent her away for two months: and she went with her companions, and bewailed her virginity upon the mountains.

11:39 And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned to her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man. And it was a custom in Israel,

11:40 That the daughters of Israel went yearly to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite four days in a year.

There is one point of interest here. A person can have the Spirit of the Lord upon them and still follow their own flesh. Anyone who has had the Spirit of God on them knows this to be the case. We all make many mistakes.
