Almighty God Action Figure (comes with his own AK-47)

The most offensive children’s toy ever made? This might be it.

I guess kids are never too young to teach them that God is ready to smite them with military-grade weapons.

I’m hoping this was just a joke and never made it to the market. Whether it was real or a joke, this toy still lines up with the religious ideology of too many people.

Instead, may we remember Psalm 103:

“The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.”

This evening, may you be reminded of the truth that God is compassionate and gracious!
