Is it possible that the judeo-christian "God"/father/YHWH actually is Yama, Lord of Death?

Is it possible that the judeo-christian "God"/father/YHWH actually is Yama, Lord of Death?

That would make a lot of sense in my perception, because the deity, called Yama, has many somehow contradicting attributes, which would explain a lot of the seeming contradictions in the bible regarding the biblical god-figure being a "loving" father figure. If "God"/Father/YHWH indeed is Yama, Lord of Death, then these contradictions are solved because Yama is not a loving father-figure.

And PLEASE, christians, don't get upset about me just asking this, okay? I just try to solve YOUR problems, you are having with your biblical deity. Maybe it is possible to discuss this possibility openly without bible-experts getting mad at me for even mentioning it.

Here are some informations about Yama in hindu-mythology and other asian areas:

Hello again Gezus/Mankind/Willingly. This is one of the accounts you haven't lost yet.

Good luck with the thread.

Oh Yeah, linking and quoting wikipedia as a source is not very sound.

I don't know about this one in particular, but I do believe many different religions/geography's "Gods" are one and the same, and the names are simply the natives' interpretations of the pronunciations. I'm Christian, but I don't believe Yahweh was ever the "good guy" God. It seems pretty clear based on the differences between the Old and New Testes.

The earth trembled and quaked,
and the foundations of the mountains shook;
they trembled because he was angry.
Smoke rose from his nostrils;
consuming fire came from his mouth,
burning coals blazed out of it.
He parted the heavens and came down;
dark clouds were under his feet.


It’s not a demon or a devil. It’s a description of God from Psalm 18.
As you can see, Bible is strange or hard to understand. I’m not Christian or Hindu but I don’t think that Yama-origin can explain the contradiction in the Bible. It's hard to compare a religion with other belief systems. There are a lot of theories. For example, someone says Christianity is similar to the cult of Mithras etc etc.
This can be interesting: "Jesus in comparative mythology" en.wikipedia.org...

One thing you can be sure of, ChesterJohn, I only ever had one account on ATS and that is this one. Mods and admins can assure you.

Anything else you have so say about what I was asking?

Maybe the Hebrew/Muslim/Christian god was nothing more than a volcano.
Oh my volcano

That's not my intention, to compare the bible with other texts or belief-systems. What interests me here is:

Could the biblical deity, called "God"/Father/Lord/YHWH be the same deity as Yama, Lord of Death, who is a very well known deity in eastern religions. That's my question.

Could? Yes.
Actually is? No.

Yama is a word for mountain, spelled 山.
The biblical deity is said to be the source of mountains, not a mountain.

Thanks for asking, hope it clarifies your perspective.

Mark 12:27 - "He is not the God the the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err."

That is your answer.

Yes, maybe...a talking volcano. Actually, as far as I know Yama, Lord of Death, he's not THAT bad as ...well...some other deity seem to be. Maybe you're right. They are not the same.

Death is not a complete a..whole, at least not in my perception.

I wasn't refering to Yama, the mountain, but Yama the Lord of Death.

Or...maybe ...Death is a mountain? But mountains are dead (matter only) seem to fit better.

Sorry, but I don't understand that. Could you please elaborate on it a little bit more? Thanks in advance.

I understand what you mean. I agree....as a non-christian/christian/neither-and-both.

Same word, same kanji, same origin.

Mountains have spiritual qualities, think Sinai or Olympus or Kilimanjaro. Hermits on mountains, Martin Luther King and his mountaintop speech, or sermon on the mount.. Yes, there are links to be made.
While יהוה just like INRI or Dieu is a four letter word that may be interpreted as relating to a specific deity, it does not refer to 山, in either of 山's definitions.

"Lord of Death" should have tipped you off. Unless you're the trolling gnostic, in which case please do carry on.

NO, Yama is a blasphemous false god or demon, Yahweh is the God of the Living not of the Dead, there are no dead and is no death in him to be caste from him is to be dead.

What kind of "spiritual qualities" do mountains have? Please tell me and I may stop trolling, if I can agree on your definition. As far as my definition goes, mountains are matter, mostely, and their basic quality is: they are unmovable.

Maybe I should better study the bible for the rest of my life instead of trolling around here. Can you please pay for my expenses when I become a full-time bible student? Or is that too much to ask for?

The kind of "spiritual qualities" that make prophets seek mountains, and people worship mountains, as some in Japan do in the example you gave.

My opinion on the nature of these qualities is mostly one of avoiding crowds. There is another factor pertaining to horizon lines which I will leave for a geometry thread.

Mountains are not unmovable, or there would be no mountain. Also, no pyramids, which are small mountains clearly moved piece by piece from the site of their extraction.
