    Verse3: Habakkuk knew that Jehovah God didn’t cause the wrongdoing he saw but he sincerely wanted to know why He allowed it to happen.
  • Tasha
    A very touching book of the Bible! I am reading it in English, Georgian and Azerbaijani (!!!). Habakkuk was a sensitive and passionate man, completely devoted to the Lord. Pouring his heart out, and our Merciful Lord listening intently to the complaints and answering, is what is most striking in this small book of the Bible.
  • A disciple
    To whom much is given, of them will the more be demanded. Sin in Christians is not only worse, but if un-repented of and that one's heart hardened in it; it brings blood guilt of all those whom he was supposed to be a witness of the grace of God; but failed! That was the very reason for the world of the beginning being ultimately destroyed, because of the apostasy and abandoning themselves to sin.

    Are the sins of believers and unbelievers equally offensive to God?
