If you had read a story about Thor , the ancient Scandinavian god of thunder , and the following was said of him , what would you think ? ; " .....Thor , the one who thunders in the heavens , crying like a baby . "
Of course , you would draw the conclusion that Thor cried like a baby .
Yet , David Jeremiah , the renowned word weaver who makes a nice living through his command of rhetorical legerdemain says the very same thing about Jesus when in one of his sermons he states ;
" ...and to walk among us , so that he might ultimately go to the cross and be the sacrifice for all of us , the Creator in a crib , the Ancient of days , becoming a babe in Bethlehem , the one who thunders in the heavens , crying like a baby . "
Had Dr. Jeremiah begun his blasphemy by stating , " Jesus , the one who thunders in the heavens , the
Ancient of days , becoming a babe in Bethlehem , the Creator in a crib , crying like a baby " , the blasphemy may seem a little more tolerable , but would still be obvious .
Saying " the Creator in a crib , crying AS a baby " might seem less prococative , but still conveys the thought that God the Creator cries like a baby , and is infantile .
