“Woe to the one who Quarrels with God”

Isaiah 45:9 basically says “Woe to the one who quarrels with God.”

What does that mean?  Look at what Isaiah says…

How terrible it will be for anyone who argues with his Maker!
He is like a broken piece of pottery lying on the ground.
Does clay say to a potter,
“What are you making?”
Does a pot say,
“You don’t have any skill”?
10 How terrible it will be for anyone who says to his father,
“Why did you give me life?”
How terrible for anyone who says to his mother,
“Why have you brought me into the world?”

We would never look at a newborn baby and shriek to his parents, “Who made this hideous child?”

Nor would a vessel on a potter’s wheel come to life and say, “Get your hands off me; I don’t want a handle there…”

Now doubts are OK and God wants to listen to those and even deal with our anger.  But quarreling brings doubts to anger that does not want resolution or reconciliation.
