"What do I think about Jehovah?"
Wow...so glad you asked.
First of all, I ask..."Why in hell would you want to worship some entity such as Jehovah, as written about in the OT"?
Honestly, why do you want to worship an entity that is so full of hate, intolerance, jealously, anger, murdering, torturing...."Love me or I will
burn you to a crisp" type of god?
IF, Jehovah is indeed real, and the bible is correct in it's description of him, then I simply do not believe his words.
IF he is real, then I project that the only power he really has is the collective belief that others put in him..thus his need for worship.
I do not believe that the great creator, Whoever or whatever he/she/or it may be, requires his creation for worship.
Jehovah, first of all, is unforgiving.....why not just forgive Adam and Eve in the first place? He set them up for the fall, since he allegedly knows
The whole premise of the religion does not make any lick of sense. And I was Pentecostal for 38 years!
The antics that Jehovah has pulled on his sinful creation are nothing that I would want to subscribe to my creator.
Why should I feel more moral than the one that I worship? I would never treat my creation as he has....allow them to exist only to burn them in hell
if they don't love him back??? What's the point in hell? Other than he gets some evil kick out of treating people this way.
If I were god I would have forgiven adam and eve... simple. Why wait 4000 years to send his only son? Every story of the OT is just ridiculous if
you are trying to say that Jehovah was at the stern of the ship the whole time. Unless you are talking about a 'mortal' ruler, with the common
traits of humanity...which is what Jehovah is described as.
In fact, he's worse thanthe humans...So, he can't or won't forgive...then he requires a blood sacrifice of an innocent life...WHY? He likes the
smell of burnt flesh..."a sweet smelling savour"...After creating all life on earth and saying that it is good, he decides that much of his creation
is unclean...birds, animals, etc.
Why in hell would the creator require BLOOD? Describe the antics of Jehovah, without mentioning his name, and any one would agree that the whole set
up is nothing but a blood cult...pagan...just like all the rest.
But on we go....and I'm skipping sooooo much...So, Jehovah gets tired of mankind sinning and he finds noah and lets him preach for 120 years or so,
warning the people. How about the millions in China, India and all around the globe that never even heard of Noah...I guess they were just in the
wrong place at the wrong time...Or god didn't care to warn them...
So, his only answer is to destroy it all and start all over again. I thought he had foreknowledge...
Onward...Lets skip over moses and the whole pharaoh scene...stupid as well...to when the children of Israel were supposed to possess the land...
God orders his children to utterly destroy the enemy...even women and children and the animals...REALLY? God places the sins of the parents on
children for up to 4 generations, or something like that...Stone people, kill and destroy.
Oh, but he's too high and mighty to speak to them himself so he has to have prophets to speak for him...ridiculous.
I could go on and on, but that is just a smidgen of things I can think of about Jehovah.
Why oh why would you want to worship some "thing' like that? Just because he said so? Just because you can't think of another reason why we could
exist and be living here on this earth?
Jesus may have been a good guy...I have no idea if he really existed. BUT, if he truly has the son-ship relations to Jehovah, then I don't have too
much good to say about him either, as he's in on the whole thing as well. I suspect Jesus had nothing to do with the OT god...only added in later to
make the whole story mesh a little better...
The whole Christian religion reeks of manmade, ungodlike actions to which I don't want any part of....regardless of how humble and meek his followers
My best guess is that he is just an entity with too much power, or technology, and is a bully to the core.
I reject it. There's so much more to our existence than this...and there's so much more knowledge to be had that will make sense out of this world
and what's going on.
I want a creator that is better than man kind...not worse.
