    Did God Cripple Jacob for Life?

    Did God Cripple Jacob for Life?

    And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. (Gen. 32:24-25)

    Due to our belief that God does not directly (or uses His omnipotent power to) inflict anyone with sickness, disease, handicaps, death, destruction or tragedy, there are questions that are brought to us from time to time concerning Bible passages that appear to contradict this premise. God placing Jacob's hip out of joint is one of them.

    There are a number of people whose agenda is to prove that God is a dispenser of life's difficulties. Among several reasons for this is their desire to protect their precious ideology of what it means for God to be sovereign (to exercise ultimate control over every event that occurs in the life and destiny of every single human being in existence). These individuals are desperate to find any passage to make their case. Naturally, they believe that the incident in Genesis 32 where Jacob wrestles with God and has his thigh placed out of joint provides them ample proof that God is behind sicknesses such as osteoporosis.

    Avoid Private Interpretations

    You will often hear or read commentaries on this passage telling us that God cripple Jacob for life. Is this a truth derived from Scripture or is it a biased interpretation influenced by an ideology that has a sickness and tragedy inflicting deity at its center?

    I should think anybody that wrestles with an angel would get wounded somehow. Seeing how they are a million times stronger than humans.

    Ain't that the truth. I would think that if God really wanted to cripple Jacob for life He would have broke off his legs

    Of course I won't say that in my article.

    Right, cause that’ll be opening a can of worms not easily closed!
