Micah: Good stuff

  1. "They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." Well, it's a nice thought, but Joel 3:10 says just the opposite. But what do you expect from a "God of Peace" (Rom 15:33, Heb 13:20) who calls himself a "man of war"? (Ex 15:3) 4:3

  2. "O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"
    (Well, it's a nice thought, but there are a few things more that Micah forgot to mention. Like you must believe certain unlikely things or you will be tormented forever in hell (Mk 16:16, Jn 3:18, 36); you must kill witches Ex 22:18, homosexuals Lev 20:13, those who believe differently than you Dt 13:6-10, disobedient children Dt 21:18-21, etc.) 6:8
