The modern "God", as defined by man, is a ruthless tyrant, and man a blind race of sheep. I will keep this short, as I don't feel like providing
specific examples. Those of you who have read the Bible, or are familiar with its stories...you who remain utterly faithful to the literal
interpretation of its fables...you are the ones I am addressing. You are the blind ones, the ones who believe in the man-defined God (despite the fact
that man, as he is, could never hope to understand God) and the ones who will know what I'm talking about as I explain this. This pertains strictly to
the Bible and to the Judaic religions, and any other materials or faiths contradicting or debating the Bible without religious expertise are
irrelevant to the matters this thread discusses. Onward:
God is a tyrant, and unworthy of our worship (not that we need to worship ANYTHING).
Here is my justification in stating this. God arrogantly created man without the knowledge of good and evil, then demanded that they obey a rule which
requires the knowledge of good and evil, then kicked them out when they fail to do so as a result of being inadequately equipped to deal with the
issue. Not stopping there, he proceeded to cast Satan out into the same world as them, so that no matter what they did, they would fall into the same
trap again and again.
Afterwards, God kills a bunch of people for not paying any attention to him, then plays with them, testing to see what kind of depraved acts they are
willing to commit to save their own skins from "damnation", before going "PSYCHE! got ya! "
Then God sends his only son to be killed in order to save the people, tricking them into accepting his gift of absorbing all sin, then demanding
payment in the form of eternal servitude...the alternative being the fiery pits of hell for all of forever.
And in the end, he will completely ransack the earth, killing half of his blindly devoted servants and making the other half question his sanity,
before sending his son back saying, "Did you miss me?" and destroying anyone who ever questioned him. Unless they beg like dogs, of course.
This is the God we have been encouraged to worship for centuries. A loving God, yet a malicious and jealous God. A contradictory, egotistical,
whimsical, and highly vindictive all-mighty being.
Is this the entity we are supposed to put our faith in? One that, for all of his power, can think of no other way to erase our sins or redeem our
souls than to kill his own son and demand that we serve him for all of eternity?
I call troll. And if you disagree, then you choose to remind faithfully blind. Me, I was given brains for a reason. I'm not choosing ignorance. And
let me make it clear that this description (which I firmly believe to be accurate) applies to man's definition of God. The God we are lead to worship
these days is not truly a god, but man's definition of God. I do not worship a definition. I do not worship a sloppily drawn, crumpled, half burnt
image...which is what man's version of God amounts to. I don't even believe that the true god desires to be worshiped. I believe that given the
choice, the true god would rather have us love each other than Him/Her/It. Because if all it leads to is wars, then why exist at all?
I believe in a god...but not the god that is being pushed upon us by our peers. This is a god who has been constructed, drawn, colored in, and defined
by the very men who worship him. Man, who has crippled and despoiled both the world and him/herself. I don't worship man's ideals, or anything that
has been interpreted by man.
I trust in the true god, not this malicious, vindictive tyrant which the Bible itself says is "jealous and angry."
Jealousy and anger are not symptoms of true love. And any omnipotent, omniscient and benevolent being would know this.
Wake up, and recognize the true god...the one within you.
