Anything that is...be it of the minds of man or through nature...has purpose. Look at Yahweh as a imagined attribute to mankind. He was prideful,
vengeful, and had a lust for material things like land and chosen people. What you are seeing is a mirror image that mankind once created as being
their 'higher self'. These are the things that some men sought after at one time and some still seek after. Its a choice of being, what is your
highest self, what are the attributes of that.
It can really explain a lot, of why men did what they did and even what they will do in the future. If you believe that there are chosen people,
chosen land, some that will not make the 'mark'....then your own nature will demonstrate this nature. Its just a way for us as groups, and as
individuals...to choose a path. There are many paths to walk and learn from and sometimes its not till after you walked down that path that you see it
for what it was really.
Dont get me wrong...Im not a supporter in any way of all the things HH says. Just offering a different understanding of how and why things like a past
god image or portrayal has purpose.
We as beings, constantly weigh and measure. One of the ways we show are measure is to create a 'image' of god. Such limits us and such gives
boundaries to what has no bounds or limits. Yahweh has many attributes of flesh and I feel this is due to mankind being limited to thinking God had to
like us...instead of creating a God that we were to become more like.
