I have seen the light and will receive the lord soon


The god of the bible, YHWH and Jesus his son are all loving, all good, all-powerful god.

You see I have been think hard and deeply and it occurred to me only a loving god would do the things am about to count and I hope when you finish reading this, you will all be saved.

Adam and Eve got punished for their first ever crime and generations after them are still suffering for this crime. This loving god expects us to forgive 70 times 7 or is it 70 I forget sometimes but could not forgive the first two ignoramuses their first misdemeanor. You know he did not have to put the tree in the garden in the first place. This god is truly loving.

When he told Noah to build the ark, he helped him secure houseflies, mosquitoes, tsetse flies and cockroaches among many others to make sure that apart from the other punishments he had inflicted on man, there was going to be sicknesses or agents that would spread the diseases all through to the end of time. This was an act of love.

His other act of love during the design, construction and commissioning of the ark and later during the deluge was to find all animals guilty with man in partaking of the fruit. The world is no better for it. And because of his love, those animals that could not make it to the ark drowned. What a mercifully god.

When after he got the sons of Israel {Jacob] into Egypt and hardening Pharaoh’s heart, he killed the first-born of everything including hens to show he was angry. Here was his mercy most shown to the Egyptians for he even asked the sons of Israel to pillage on their way to the desert. Who would not count this an act of love and mercy?

His great power is displayed in the wilderness when after feeding the people of Israel on manna for dog years, he got offended at their golden calf and ordered the priestly class to slaughter all those who were involved in this unforgivable crime.

For the crime of occupying land that this god had earmarked for the sons of Israel, the Canaanites had their women and children killed, virgins taken as slaves and their land forcefully acquired like the way the Chinese government does. This here was an act of love.

In a show of power, he stopped the sun for several hours to help Jacob in his killing spree. Now that is being all-powerful.

In the NT, we have his son superstar Jesus H. Christ calming seas, walking on water, healing a few blind men, being tempted by Satan and many heroic things, they did not find it in their all loving and all-powerful natures to completely eradicate blindness, ignorance, make wine readily available for all.

The crowning glory of love, power and mercy we see when to save us from his wrath- don’t ever forget he is all loving, all merciful, all just- he had his son commit suicide by the Centurion. Many men have lost their limb and life in defending or fighting for this great act of love, mercy and justice. I know you will say that an all-powerful god could just say I forgive you, go and sin no more, but that would not be truly loving.

If you have managed to read this far, you understand why I have seen the light and I will join the brigade of love, justice and mercy. Hail Christianity, Hail religion. One really has to be daft to believe in this as being an act of love.

Postscript:

For his love of Job and in the need to settle his ego issues with the all malevolent creator, he made job go though agonizing pain both physical and emotional. Don’t no one tell me I got ego issues, one thing I know for certain they don’t match this god’s.

    I am not sure who came up with the idea of a loving god. The gods of antiquity are ruthless psychopaths and this one, as portrayed in the mythology of the OT is no exception.
    I prefer the version of the great flood story as told by the Sumerians. The story was later taken over by the Babylonians (Akkadians) and then obviously adopted by the Hebrews during the time they where ruled by the Asyyrians and many of them had been taken to Mesopotamia.
    According to Sumerian mythology, originally the gods had to do all the work themselves. So human beings where created by them to do the work (practically as slaves) so the gods could have it easy. However, humans made so much noise that the highest god, Enlil, became annoyed and decided to get rid of them, so he send the great flood. He ordered that nobody should help the humans. (Note that nobody here claims that the gods love humans. This religion is brutally honest in this respect).
    However, one of the gods, Enki (the water god, himself a kind of trickster), decided to save the human Utanapishtim. Since he was not supposed to help humans, he went to Utanapishtims house and talked to the wall of the house, instead of talking to Utanapishtim: “Listen, wall, a great flood is going to come”, or something like that. Of course, Utanapishtim inside heard it and then built himself a ship in order to survive the flood.
    In this story, the goods are not loving. They are, after all, personifications of powers of nature, sometimes benign and sometimes destructive.
    The idea of a loving god was obviously crafted ontop of a god who had been of this kind as well. Such a “loving” god seems to be a good tool of power. You have the wrath of god, eternal torture in hell ect. but you can still tell people about god’s love. A Santa Claus type of god, bringing gifts but also carrying his rod to beat the bad boys. Santa is of cause only a lesser deity in the Christian pantheon, a carricature of the guy on top, but it is the same principle, hohoho!
    I prefer me my Enlil and Enki. With them, you knew what you are getting.

      Gods enraged b y the noise human beings are making, now those are serious gods.
      The gods of antiquity and the mythos around them are interesting reads. They should be popularized in this age and maybe some people would begin to think differently about their gods

    It’s amazing, when you think about it, that these tales of absurdity and childish reasoning have survived all the way up to the 21st century. Worse, that several billions of people on earth actually believe in them. I sometimes look at religious grownups, and can’t help feeling like they have a malady within them – a malady that the society has accepted to be a normal state of being.
