Please, may I ask why you think you should fear God? Love God and respect God. Acknowedge God for what God is. However, please, why fear God?
Oooh! Oooh! Ask me! Ask me!
You should fear 'god' because as a fictional character, he is one of the most evil I've ever come across.
The following are from his own handbook
4:23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.
4:24 And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.
4:25 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to
In short, Moses' wife Zipporah, had to genitally mutilate her son to stop god killing Moses.
2:23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and
said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
2:24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare
forty and two children of them.
Killing 42 kids for calling someone 'baldy'!! What a lovely fella.
10:7 And it came to pass, when the letter came to them, that they took the king's sons, and slew seventy persons, and put their heads in baskets, and
sent him them to Jezreel.
10:8 And there came a messenger, and told him, saying, They have brought the heads of the king's sons. And he said, Lay ye them in two heaps at the
entering in of the gate until the morning. (10:8) "They have brought the heads of the king's sons. And he said, Lay ye them in two heaps at the
entering in of the gate until the morning."
10:9 And it came to pass in the morning, that he went out, and stood, and said to all the people, Ye be righteous: behold, I conspired against my
master, and slew him: but who slew all these? (10:9-10) "In the morning, that he went out ... and said ... the LORD hath done that which he spake by
his servant Elijah."
10:10 Know now that there shall fall unto the earth nothing of the word of the LORD, which the LORD spake concerning the house of Ahab: for the LORD
hath done that which he spake by his servant Elijah.
10:11 So Jehu slew all that remained of the house of Ahab in Jezreel, and all his great men, and his kinsfolks, and his priests, until he left him
The evil of god knows no bounds here, slaying the whole house of Ahab, and most of Ahabs citizens on nothing more than a whim.
Lovely man your god is isn't he? I could find 1,000's of biblical quotes such as these, yet only 11 deaths attributable to satan... hmmm. Remind me
who the evil one is again!
Thanks but I'll leave it if you don't mind. The most evil person in literary history and people decide to devote their lives to him. Astounding,
Thank god I'm an atheist.
