About Some Notable Biblical Figures

If They Are In Violation of Divine Law

Do Not Do What Their Words or Actions May Say

Worshiping the golden calf enabled by Aaron


This document is not about challenging the Word of God. What we are challenging - actually denouncing - are the abuses allegedly committed by many individuals chosen by God to serve Him. Why does miguel feel that this is necessary? Because many of the faithful take the behavior of those chosen ones as examples of what is correct without pondering the reality that many of their deeds outrageously violate the Fundamental Laws of God.

What gives miguel the ability to understand those situations and pass judgment on their behavior? The simple and straight forward answer is only one: God!

Who gives him the authority to do this? God!

Rest assured that what God promised to the world through the prophet Malachi....

"See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction." [Malachi 4:5-6] is being fulfilled, whether the reader wishes to believe it or not.


The Fundamental Laws of God

First of all, let us review the Fundamental Laws of God before we commence to highlight their gross violation by some of God's chosen ones.

Those commandments are very clear, very few and very simple. Let us refresh our collective memory:

The Ten Commandments from Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5

+ Thou shalt not have strange gods before me.
+ Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing. Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them.
+ Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
+ Remember that thou keep holy the sabbath day.
+ Honour thy father and thy mother.
+ Thou shalt not kill.
+ Thou shalt not commit adultery.
+ Thou shalt not steal.
+ Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
+ Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house: neither shalt thou desire his wife, nor his servant, nor his handmaid, nor his ox, or his ass, nor any thing that is his.

The two key Divine attributes that have existed since before Creation, and upon which we must fix our gaze, are: (a) Divine Love, the root cause of Creation; and the logical consequence of Divine Law - (b) Divine Mercy

Divine Mercy, a direct consequence of Divine Love, is what reduces the consequences that we bring upon ourselves by refusing to live by those fundamental Laws. Therefore, we should look at those Laws as priceless gifts from God.

The Violations

We will highlight just a few of the violations with the intent of providing a standard that could be use in the evaluation of all the other acts by the chosen ones of God. Those who wish to pursue this matter further with their Bibles, will quickly find out that even if God allowed, through His Passive Will, those transgressions or abuses of authority, they all had serious consequences for the chosen ones who blatantly ignored the Fundamental Laws of God.


Chose to ignore God's promise and followed his wife's advise to have a child with her slave, Hagar, and not with her. Thus, forcing the Hand of God and starting an unplanned by God lineage which today compose the Arab Nations. [Genesis 16]


Caused the sons of Levi to act thus:

And he said to them: Thus saith the Lord God of Israel: Put every man his sword upon his thigh: go, and return from gate to gate through the midst of the camp, and let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour. [Exodus 32]

Blasphemy! The Law "Thou shalt not kill" has been in place - by Divine example - since the days of Adam, Eve, Abel and Cain. We find no exceptions to it, just as we can see in Genesis 4:

...but whosoever shall kill Cain, shall be punished sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, that whosoever found him should not kill him.

Also in the Book of Exodus we read:

And the people seeing that Moses delayed to come down from the mount, gathering together against Aaron, said: Arise, make us gods, that may go before us: for as to this Moses, the man that brought us out of the land of Egypt, we know not what has befallen him. And Aaron said to them: Take the golden earrings from the ears of your wives, and your sons and daughters, and bring them to me. And the people did what he had commanded, bringing the earrings to Aaron. [Exodus 32:1-3]

Let us not forget that Aaron was a priest as well as Moses' brother. He was the spiritual leader of the group while Moses was away, thus he is the one who was responsible for the manufacturing of the golden calf. Yet, he was not included in Moses illegal command to Put every man his sword upon his thigh: go, and return from gate to gate through the midst of the camp, and let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour.

We can see that, Aaron, the predecessor of today's priestly class enjoyed the same benefits from the religious administrators of the time, in this case Moses, as today's priestly class enjoys from the Roman Catholic Church Hierarchical Administrators. Aaron was held blameless in spite of the fact that he broke, and led others to break, the first two Commandments:

+ Thou shalt not have strange gods before me.
+ Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing. Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them.


Not only David engaged in adultery - with the wife of Urias - but compounded it by having Urias murdered by default. [2 Samuel 11]

Three key Commandments violated by a key player in the plans of God for the salvation of humanity.

+ Thou shalt not kill.
+ Thou shalt not commit adultery.
+ Thou shalt not... desire thy neighbour' s wife, ...


Once God worked the miracle proving the Elijah was the real prophet of God....

Elijah said to them: Take the prophets of Baal, and let not one of them escape. And when they had taken them, Elijah brought them down to the torrent Cison, and killed them there. [1 Kings 18]

There are many, many more examples of outright violations of Divine Law by God's chosen ones, however, the faithful must understand that such behavior is not condoned by God under any circumstances. Not even when the chosen one claims that God told him to behave in such manner. That would be a lie!

Understand one and all: To fulfill His Will, God, Who Is Perfect, will never, ever!, move any of His chosen ones to break Divine Law and whomever does, invoking the Name of God as the motive, will have much to account before the Throne of God when his soul is judged.

If God needs to eliminate any threat to His people, He will do it Himself somehow as He has shown many times through the Holy Texts and world history.

Being specifically chosen by God to fulfill His Will in the world stage, does not mean that such appointment is accompanied with the permission to violate Divine Law. That is a fact which miguel de Portugal can testify to with absolute certainty from personal experience.


It is interesting to note that such deviations and betrayals by God's Elect - a sample of which we have enumerated above - are not found in the Acts of the Apostles and beyond texts. The absence of such aberrant behavior speak very, very highly of all of the men who launched Christianity as Jesus had requested of them.


...he that knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes.

And unto whomsoever much is given, of him much shall be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will demand the more. [Luke 12:48]
