Fans react to Banky W's post
Netizens have reacted to the post made by the singer about the popular bible verse. Here are some of the reactions below.
"No sensible preacher passes a message this way. If you think you have better insight you will share it to benefit others not use it as a way to prove something and then ask people to argue. How does arguing edify anybody? You people should do better. Banky do better."
"Throw away that Bible and have a sane reasoning ."
"The bible is very deep...it takes only d grace of God to understand it."
"Poverty go make u think say anything rich man talk is right."
"I don't know his Bible version .but good news Bible is very clear on this .God was talking about abandoning the Israelites because of their stubbornness and disobedience. God was talking about Israel loosing a battle before because God had abandoned them."
"My understanding about Deuteronomy 32:30 , "How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight unless their Rock had sold them, unless the Lord had given them up?" This verse emphasizes the idea that with the support and strength provided by the Lord, the people can achieve remarkable success, far beyond what would be expected by simple addition of individual efforts. It underscores the significance of relying on divine strength and guidance."
"You dey interpret bible with your brain abi? Good luck to you."
"This is what the verse said, from good news bible: Deu 32:30 why were a thousand defeated by one, and ten thousand by only two? The lord, their God, had abandoned them; their mighty God had given up on them."
"And you don't think it's smart to then give your reasons, explaining further for more enlightenment rather than wish you get argued with? Na wah sir."
"We don't agree or disagree, but if you want to argue it, we've got the best apartments for you to argue Bible verses in."
Rev Tope Abikoye says Deuteronomy 32 : 30 is a curse
In a chat with Legit.ng, Rev Abikoye said that to understand a verse of the bible, one has to read the whole passage.
" To haver a better understanding of the verse, you have to read the whole bible. The passage talks about the Israelites and how they forsook the lord and his ways despite the great deeds God did for them in the wilderness. Verses 7 through 14 reveal the good things God did for the Israelites and how they turned against him. The Israelites couldn't utilize their potential in verse 30 because they were not trusting in the rock of ages( God). He had abandoned them to their plight then and gave them up to trust other gods and their abilities. That was why it was written that God sold them. Selling them there means rejecting them and giving them up to smaller nations to override them. There was no way they could attain the full potential God had given to them. One could only chase a thousand and two were able to chase ten thousand. They couldn't achieve much success because they didn't have the backing of the lord again."
