Let's get right down to it. Since many claim that Jesus is, in fact, god, I believe you are asking if I would change if I knew this god of the bible
were real. Hell yes! This frightening entity would have me on my knees 24 hours a day, for the rest of my life.
This is why I dare say that the true believers now aren't really true believers. If they truly believed, then they would live with their faces pressed
to the ground in worship of him while singing endless praises, and remain in total fear of him, right down to their core.
Here's a god that can turn you into a pillar of salt on just a whim. He has proven that he is not above drowning you, or placing excruciating plagues
upon you and your loved ones. This Jesus/slash/god has proven that he can cure one blind man, but wouldn't want to cure all blind men. He can bring
one man back to life, but decide that your child will remain quite dead.
I would tremble in fear when looking upon an attractive woman other than my wife. Why, because this god can read my mind, and seeing as he created me
with human desires, my mind would definitely think of doing naughty things with this woman. This biblical god knows when you covet another man's wife
or his goods. And, poof!
, you're suddenly a big crunchy piece of toast in hell.
If this god were real I would quickly learn how to love him while living in utter fear of him. As Jesus stated, the most important commandment is to
love your god with all your heart, mind and soul. This is not a request; it's a command to love that big megalomaniac in the sky.
I just thank my lucky stars that it's all bunch of crap.
