Psalm 91: No Harm Will Befall You, No Disaster Will Come Near Your Tent


To read the tragic story about the accident which claimed the life of Christian singer Curtis Chapman's little daughter, click here . 

I do not mention this incident lightly.  It breaks my heart to see this kind of thing happen.  I cannot imagine how difficult this is for a parent to go through.  But I have quite a few friends , who are Christians, who have had to deal with similar tragedies.  What about Psalms 91?

Psalms 91

9.   If you make the Most High you dwelling--even the Lord, who is my refuge--
10. then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.  

So what are the choices with regard to this wonderful Christian singer?

a. He was out of "faith".
b. God is trying him like he tried Job?
c. Psalms 91 is not to be taken literally, and God does not promise us a bed of roses.

For me, all of these possibilities are not reasonable.  First of all, the Bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.  So Curtis is a human being.  So what?  Don't tell me he was out of faith.  His songs are full of the opposite.  He believed Psalms 91 as much as anyone.  Secondly, I do not believe the book of Job at all.  An honest look at the book of Job and Psalms 91 reveal polar opposites.  And besides, Job is hearsay, based upon hearsay.  I do not believe it nor consider it reasonable.  And thirdly, the Bible does promise Psalms 91.  If somewhere else in the Bible disagrees with these verses, then it only supports my book's stance that the Bible is not cohesive and causes strife.   

I offer my heartfelt condolences to Curtis, his wife and family.  I believe Christianity is such a cruel  deception.  But, at least it ends it's tale with a promise of seeing loved ones again in heaven.  But if Psalms 91 was not true in the first place, I wonder if the promise of heaven is true?
