They are completely different gods. But thank you for proving my point that people do not "hate" gods they don't believe in.<quoted text> Gabriel, the arch angel in the Bible, is the one that instructed Muhammad in the Quran. Gabriel is of the same God, therefore, Allah is the same God as the biblical one. I do not hate Zeus or Krishna, for they are misinterpreted versions of the same God.
He was willing to pointlessly suffer for 3 days in order to save mankind...from himself? Utter nonsense.Christ's suffering was cruel, but it was to show what God was willing to do to save mankind.
It is like a mugger holding a gun to your head and then he decides to shoot his brother in the foot instead of shooting you in the head. What an amazing act of love! No, it's an act of lunacy. Completely pointless and cruel.
The Christian god is supposed to be an intelligent being, no? Shouldn't his decisions be intelligent, rather than completely irrational and inefficient?Also, how in the hell do you know what God would do or not do?
If you were a god, and you had the most important message to deliver to all the people of Earth, how would you deliver it? Perhaps you'd have your face appear in the sky all across Earth and talk to every person. That would be pretty effective, right?
Or would you rather turn into a human being, hang out with people for a short period of time, and have the message slowly be spread by word of mouth, taking thousands of years to reach around the world through a contradictory, error-filled, and silly book that no one has any reason to believe is true?
If you're saying it's the same concept, then you're comparing them. You'd have to kill rabid dogs to defend yourself. You'd never have to kill unarmed women and children to defend yourself.And NO I did not compare unarmed women and children to rabid dogs. I am just saying it is the same concept.
The Hebrew god specifically authorized the Israelites to forcibly marry and rape any women they captured in battle.I do not understand why you suggest raping rabid dogs,
Because the OT god views women as property. It's not rocket science.I believe that it was man's decision to rape these women, not God's decision. Why God didn't stop them, I don't know.
If the OT has mistakes in it, why didn't Jesus clear those up?The version of God that I mainly focus on resides in the New Testament, although the Old Testament has its truths as well.
"Hey guys, you know all the stuff about slavery and mistreating women? That shouldn't be in there. I was never okay with that. Please edit it out."
