Hello again Gezus/Mankind/Willingly. This is one of the accounts you haven't lost yet.
...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...
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.
Maybe the Hebrew/Muslim/Christian god was nothing more than a volcano.
Yama is a word for mountain, spelled 山. The biblical deity is said to be the source of mountains, not a mountain.
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.
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.
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.
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.
