Im not outright condemning any religion here. There is a lot of stuff in every book that makes great sense. Theres also a lot of great nonsense to
match. My condemnation is directed towards those who cant recognize the non sense and, in fact, refuse to even question it out of fear of whatever.
I will agree with you on this. The Bible is different. Anyone who questions the Bible will mainly complain about the LORD of the Old Testament.
They note the atrocities there. What they do not know is that the Son of God created our material world in Genesis 2. Paradise is Genesis 1. Here
is a thread on the topic: Two Creations
Why two creations? Why is one fallen? It's a simple answer. First, God is raising His Son to maturity. This is accomplished by the Son involving
into the material world as humanity. Not only are we our own person, but we are all one loaf of bread. In other words, we are all from the same
soul. That soul is being raised and so are we. Any mistakes made by the LORD of the OT are truly our mistakes. We blame the LORD without realizing
that the LORD is the same soul as the one we use to be a human. We are mirror images. As He grows, so do we. How do I confirm this?
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all
things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead,
so that in everything he might have the supremacy.
Follow me here. He is the firstborn over all creation. He is the maker of Adam (Luke 3 Genealogy). He is the head of the Church. Great. Now we
just need to identify the Church.
1 Corinthians 10
16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation
in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
If the church is one loaf of bread, who is the heel on either side of the loaf (Beginning and End)?
1 Corinthians 15
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a
life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.
Adam is the heel on either side of the loaf. What does the heel do? Eventually, he does this:
“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
The heel crushes the head (Authority) of Satan. The Same Adam that fell is the same Adam at the end that saves humanity. We are Adam.
23 “Oh, that my words were recorded,
that they were written on a scroll,
24 that they were inscribed with an iron tool on lead,
or engraved in rock forever!
25 I know that my redeemer[c] lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[d]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet[e] in[f] my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
Who is the root of the problem? Adam. Who is the Redeemer? Adam at the end. The Son of God is the heel.
Now that you know why the OT is harsh, also know who saved us.
