Christians judge god as good. Gnostic Christians judge god as evil. Which religion is correct?
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” Richard Dawkins.
I say shame on all Christians for not judging justly and being morally corrupt.
I offer as evidence of Yahweh’s corruption one simple fact. 1Peter 1:20 0 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.
This is god setting a bribe price to reverse his usual justice of punishing the innocent to punishing the guilty. This shows his moral and ethical corruption. It also show Jesus as just as corrupt as he went along with it.
Gen3;22 Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good.
The Christian Bible was still taking form in the 17th century. For example the rose does not appear in the Bible until the KJV.
Personally I would not attach too much importance to any biblical statements that give authority to the church or its leaders.
Given the damage they continue to do to us as a people, if you live by the Golden Rule, you have to act against their evil.
If you are not up to that moral level, you are not alone.
Change the labels in this quote to women, minorities, gays or children being brainwashed by religions and it shows what we should be thinking and doing for each other.
"First they came for the Jews, but I did nothing because I'm not a Jew. Then they came for the socialists, but I did nothing because I'm not a socialist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I did nothing because I'm not a Catholic. Finally, they came for me, but by then there was no one left to help me." – Pastor Father Niemoller (1946)”
