In the back-to-front, upside-down, white-is-black, I-do -the-opposite-of-what-I-say, bible…bible god is said to be good, but is then continually depicted as a petty, vindictive, egotistical, narcissistic, dishonest, immature, adolescent, pouting, perverted, gambling with people’s lives for fun*, punishing the innocent**, trumpian/flawed entity…much like the rulers of the day…
In the beginning of the story, god declares “If you eat even one of my magical fruit…you will surely die!” (But the truthful serpent says no they wont) So Adam and Eve eat a piece of the magical fruit, and don’t die! They just come to suddenly realize that god has been keeping them imprisoned and stripped naked in his back yard…for his perverse pleasure…and feel violated…!
Then, near the end of the story, god declares he will return to earth to wipe out his enemies (those who either have never heard of him, or simply don’t believe his OPM/money obsessed greedy agents…) within his listeners lifetime. He then either never returned…or he did and tragically got run over by a runaway bullock cart, in a freak accident…before being able to destroy anyone…!
Previously, after wiping almost everyone in the world out in a (fantasy) flood…god repents of his gross immorality (no one other than those in a two mile radius of Noah’s house, even heard of god’s warnings of impending destruction…! (Imaging someone living two blocks away from your house…You have no idea of what they believe god told them in a disturbed dream…maybe after eating too much cheese, too late at night…!) Remorseful god then promises to never destroy everyone in a (fantasy) worldwide flood again…a pointless and disingenuous promise…as bible god knows he is planning to destroy everyone on earth
(at a specific time, that ignores all those who died previously)
with global fire next time…!
After narcissistically demanding non-stop praise and worship…from people he is withholding the knowledge of painkillers and antibiotics (and often food and well being) from…he commands that everyone not kill others (other than religious leaders, who he commands to kill anyone that infringes the most nonsensical rules, like a parent gathering fuel to cook a meal for dependents on the Sabbath)…or steal their stuff…yet, a few pages later…commands his people to kill everyone in a particular area…and steal their stuff…(because they happen to live and successfully farm in an area (for generations) that bible god now wants to give to others, without even telling the inhabitants first…!
Bible believers ignore and distort almost the entire bible…to find a scrap they claim is good…but in reality is flawed/evil…
- Do unto other? No, leave others the hell alone…! No one wants a deviant/pervert/masochistic abuser…to decide to do what they personally enjoy…to others…without their permission…!
- A father condemning/demanding that his son be a human sacrifice to appease himself…is not an act of love to anyone…it is abuse of the highest order…! Why didn’t the father sacrifice himself, and leave the son to get on with his own life…especially since the religious say that both were the same entity…!?!
- What a pointless and ridiculous exercise…was sacrificing countless animals…for religious reasons…just to later prefer a human sacrifice…!
- Building an OT…and later a NT…religious infrastructure…and property network…does not make anyone more moral…Refer thousand of abusing agents of bible god…or those bejeweled…and sitting on golden thrones…!
- The bible has been used for generations…to justify slavery…genocide…rape pillage and plunder of the other…total hypocrisy…the subjugation of women…abuse of children…and denying the rights of minorities…
It is little wonder that believers rarely read the bible right through…!
Job’s wife and family, David and
Bathsheba’s baby, Egypt’s first born, Lazarus…etc
** everyone, for Adam and Eve;’s forbidden snack, Exodus 20:5; 34:7; Numbers 14:18; Deuteronomy 5:9 bible god demonstrates that he is an irrational god, “punishing the children for the sin of the fathers…to the third and fourth generation…” (obvious nonsense and more idle religious superstitious threats…in reality…!)
