Everyone has heard this one. This is a bland, generic uplifting phrase that Christians contort and distort to further their sorry, lying agenda.
What they mean to tell you about this is that, "God has a big plan for your life, a special calling and a bright future."
But that is a complete lie against Jeremiah because this verse applies only to Jeremiah.
God is not hear saying a general exhortative... He is speaking only to Jeremiah.
So Christians lie to say this means God has a plan for everyone.
Jeremiah Commanded to Remain Single and a Virgin
Christians Are Selective in What Parts of the Bible They Do or Do Not Believe
"The word of the Lord came also unto me, saying, Thou shalt not take thee a wife, neither shalt thou have sons or daughters in this place." [Jeremiah 16:1,2]
Christians say that "God has a special someone just for you. God wants you to be fruitful and multiply."
Honestly, Christian, you have no way of knowing that.
- God ordains virginity for some of his priests and prophets
- ordains virginity for an unnamed and anonymous multitude
- and ordains virginity for the 144,000
So tell me, why do you go about lying against the LORD Almighty to put words in His mouth, saying He has a special plan for everyone, and for a smoking hot wife, and great boats and mansions and all material wealth. For if you listen to many of the televangelists, what they will tell you is God is waiting to give you millions of dollars but hasn't done it yet because you haven't paid your tithes.
I've Got One For You Christians
God Wants You Sitting in a Pit
Throughout the Bible, God has prepared deep, dark places for His people.
- The Sons of Korah were swallowed by the earth (Numbers 26:10)
- Jeremiah was thrown in a pit (Jeremiah 38)
- Jonah was swallowed by a whale (Jonah 1:17)
- God has a very warm toasty place for those who defy His orders (Hell)
Therefore, if I use the same retarded logic that Christians use, then we can conclude namely
That God has no plan for you but to see you rot...
And He thinks you should be sitting in a hole in the ground or with the fishes
This is what I propose..
A comprehensive, universal hermeneutics, ethics, and theology.
That certain rules are established to best determine the meaning of each verse and to mitigate each point on which it fails.
And finally, that we stick with it.
You cannot use a personal prophecy to Jeremiah to apply to the people of earth broadly unless you are willing to accept every broad implication of that.
You must stop telling people charming and uplifting LIES to get them to believe your message. Tell them the truth, adding nothing and taking away nothing. You cannot make someone believe in God by lying to them about His true nature, because then it is not God they believe but only the fairy tale you have created.
Stop misrepresenting the truth, found in the true and holy words of the Prophets and Messiah, and Moses!
They are the truest and most perfect words that the Apostles have mostly only polluted, particularly Sha'ul of Tarsus, who reinvented himself with the alias Paul, like any common criminal seeking to evade detection.
Stop believing New Testament, sectarian psychoticisms and cling only to the words of the Lord and His prophets!
(Addendum: If some of you cannot detect the sarcasm in this post, I will word it this way... If you are going to twist the Book of Jeremiah, then you have to twist all of it! not just the parts that you like!)
