God - creates "free will", wants you to use it but gets mad when you do, then he doesn't want you to use it. Wants you to be his slave, for no reason other than pride.
He tells you to not do shit, calls this list Commandments, whether it's 10 or 600, who cares. He doesn't follow this list, not at all. He gets a pass.
He murders millions for using their free will. He doesn't allow anyone to believe what they want. He asks his followers to kill men, children and "impure women". (the pure women, they can keep for themselves)
He is sexist; telling women they ain't shit and need to be submissive and can't preach the word.
Dude said slavery was cool and you can even kill your slave if they step out of line.
Dude said having multiple women was cool, too.
Devil- encourages free will and thinking for ones self.
Doesn't kill anyone
Doesn't hate anyone
The bad guy sounds like God, tbh. It makes no sense to think otherwise.
Flip these roles to an actor, bet you'd root for the devils characteristics rather than gods.
You guys just stay blind to gods bullshit because "god" is the title, therefore, god gets a pass and can do no wrong.
I don't agree with your part on the concept of the devil. Hitler didn't physically kill millions of Jews but it was done by his influence.
If I believed in the bible I would see gods ways as that of a father. Your father doesn't wanna control u but he wants u to make the riggt choices and u get punished when u do something wrong. At the same time he won't hold ur hand thru everything. that's my understanding of it.
My problem is those stories are hard to believe so they must be metaphorical but the history of the religion and the way its been watered.down and organized and the fact that there ain't shit for evidence I can't live based on that.
Hitlers words brainwashed millions to believe and accept that Jews were shit and needed to be murdered. He didn't necessarily kill anyone himself. Same with Charles Manson.
God did the same. Just with his people and "sinners".
We can say those guys are "bad" and "immoral", but we don't view god the same way? LOL nah, that's hypocrisy and ignorance
I was kicking back watching a program on religion, various beliefs and what not. It spoke on how it "shaped" the world, the way we live, act, our laws etc..
Most of the religions are now outdated, no one gives a fuck about Zeus or Thor. (unless they're in video games or superheroes)
Christianity is currently the worlds largest religion.
According to studies, done within the last few years, less and less people have a religion, believe in a god or attend any church services.
Now, with social media, scientist like Bill Nye, Niel Tyson DeGrasse and Michio Kaku, are celebrity scientists. They're highly praised for their brilliant minds and ways of thinking. Our world is now being shaped by technology and science.
So, in time, do you think science and scientists will become, essentially, the new "religion" and new people to "worship"? All while current spiritual religion ends up taking a backseat to much smaller groups who will end up being the outcasts?
