So small a book, yet Habakkuk answers too big questions.
1) God did not ask Israelites to plunder other nations (Habakkuk 2:8)
2) God did not authorize eating of flesh of other living beings. (Habakkuk 1:15) Uninspired Bible writers invented a story of Noah’s flood which meant all plant lives got destroyed which necessitated the eating of flesh of living beings (ironically, as though God commanded Noah to eat the flesh of the very living beings God supposedly commanded him to save through ark taking two of all creatures)
3) Each person has to purify himself—another person has nothing to do with this. (Habakkuk 2:4) When one deviates from righteous path it is sin, and when he returns to the righteous path he is righteous again. God cannot think of ransom sacrifice where an innocent son of His is murdered—which is an evil act in itself. ‘His mind is too pure to contemplate such an evil thing and he cannot tolerate wrongdoing.’ (Habakkuk 1:13)
