Right off the bat, this God of the Bible has adversaries. In fact, one third of the population of heaven rebelled against this God. Why, we wonder.
It was because of us. God loved us more than he loved those angels, and they got mad. What did he do? He gave the leader of this rebellion dominion
over the earth, where he put Adam and Eve!
He created them. male and female, 2 fully developed humans. They never learned to stand or to fall down, never felt a mother's unconditional love or
got a hug or a spanking. Then this God leaves them alone, while he goes off, who knows where, and leaves the devil to babysit.
Hey, a snake is a snake, everybody knows that. But God is surprised that Adam and Eve were seduced by the very guy who led one third of God's
heavenly population into rebellion! So what does God do? He throws them out of the garden and curses the woman to sorrow in childbirth.
Then he continues to allow these rebellious "fallen angels" to rape the daughters of Eve, and bring forth monsters to torture the sons of Adam! Then
he sends a flood and kills almost everyone.
Then fast forward to Moses, who got into trouble for killing an Egyptian soldier, and had to flee from Egypt. He sees a burning bush and hears a
voice that tells him to do stuff, and he calls this voice God. He tells us that this God has rules for us to follow.
These rules are flawed from the get go! Of course the first rule is not to question God and we are ordered to obey, love and respect this God. Oh
yeah, the law says not to kill too. I guess it was important to emphasize that since Moses was a murderer. And we are also told, in these ten
commandments, that women are property, the same value as man's donkey, or ass, as the Bible says.
Then this supposedly loving God sends his son to be murdered by an angry mob, to cleanse our "sins" because he loves us so much! Only if we believe
the story, are we saved from his own wrath. Then, we are promised the 2nd destruction of the world, by the return of a vengeful God, who is to
separate the good people from the bad, who are doomed.
Yep, that's one "loving" God, huh? Thanks for allowing me to rant, guys!
