To which "father" god? Yahweh was one of 70 so called gods. El Elyon was the highest, and Yahweh was not. Yahweh was given Jacob (Israel) as his inheritance. What happened to the other 69 gods?
In the words of Carl Sagan, extraordinary claims, require extraordinary proof.
This is what older versions and translations say of Duet 32:8-9 that we have found. What about his wife, Asherah, who was scrubbed from the O.T. and history? How does that fit with your message? How about explaining Psalm 82 with that info, and recall not even the Pharasee's could answer Jesus on that one. I can answer it. The Psalmist believed in a council of 'gods'. I.e, polytheism, with Yahweh 'standing up‘, berating the other 'gods' about perceived injustice.
The OT has been edited, redacted and changed numerous times, long before "Jesus" came. It was changed to match the narrative of the New Testament too. Today, the N.T. is being edited, redacted and changed right in front of you. The words, and concepts, are more contemporary, in order to ensnare new beleivers.
Don't take my word on it, Google it. Reach your own conclusion. And before you say i know nothing about your beliefs, look at my post history when i was a Misslerite, thinking he was on a mission from "God".
somehow, the bible gets a free pass by christians upon so MANY verses that are disgusting to me, Yet they will fanatically swear that the bible needs to be followed to the letter on other passages.
I always loved when the female thumpers in my family would try and thump on me, then they get mad when I pull up other verses in the book.
Sometimes it seems that those "pagan" anglos treated women MUCH better. could be worse treatment than the bible though, the koran and the muslim things where women have to wear ninja suits everywhere.
