Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
- New American Standard Version (1995)
It wasn't just a lone being, entity, alien, etc....... named, "God" . There's the "Us" .
The earliest word for God is Elohim and it is a majestic plural. God is a husband and wife, not a father and son. God is Energy and the forces in nature. Gravitation, electromagnetism and the nuclear forces. It is omnipotent, omnipresent and eternal. The Lord (Messiah) is the wife of God, Isaiah 54:5-6 and God is united in one flesh. Genesis 2:24. "But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces..." Daniel 11:38.

Judaism is the closest to the Truth and the coming redeemer is the God of Israel. "...for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion" Isaiah 52:8. There is only Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox and they will be united by the living God. The thousands of Christian sects are not even monotheistic and do not qualify as Abrahamic. They serve a different God. When the Messiah comes, everyone will be either Christian or believe in the Truth. The sons of darkness vs. the sons of light.

God made man in "Their" image, likeness, etc......, which means "They" have human form. The bible would not read, "One of Us" if God was referring only to himself.

There a few men, prior to Jesus, who tried to fulfill the OT prophecies. All they did was study the prophecies and follow them step by step. Jesus did the same thing, but he succeeded where the other men didn't.

Closest to the truth? Is that like maybe a cubic zirconia of a god, like it's almost the truth, but not quite? A god who doesn't do his/her very own holy book, but is ok, with being sort of represented in somebody else's book. Ha ha! Yeah, you got some pushing to do, and it ain't gonna be easy.

Everything done in the life of Jesus and the NT was an attempt to fulfill the scriptures. Jesus fulfilled nothing. What Christians say are fulfilled are verses taken out of context. In that sense, we've all fulfilled the bible. A complete Psalm, paragraph or chapter is a prophecy and the true Messiah has fulfilled hundreds of them. If you count verses, like Christians, it's tens of thousands.

Jews observe the law of God, as they perceive it. What they don't understand and do not study are the prophets, and eschatology. Some laws I interpret differently, like the observance of the new year and the separation of meat and dairy products.

Everybody sort of 'observes the law of God, as they perceive it". God doesn't seem to mind ... doesn't say much ... just smites us every once in a while for no apparent reason. I wish s/he'd do more of a 'sin-punishment, sin-punishment, sin-punishment' kind of arrangement so we could figure out exactly what pisses him/her off. Somebody eats a catfish in Milwaukee and s/he hit's Japan with a Tsunami or something. There's no cause and effect. It's very confusing. It's like s/he takes it, takes it, takes it as long as s/he can then ... BAM!!!... spins off a couple Natural Disasters ... and then s/he's okay for a while. Sheesh. But, you're right ... does kind of sound like a woman thing. You may be onto the greatest theological revolution to come down the tubes in thousands of years!!! Congratulations and keep up the good work!

Yeah. I've always liked how "the prophecies" made in the first half of the book come true in the second half of the book. Boy, if modern authors ever catch on to that trick, we're not going to know what to believe!!

Whoa, whoa, whoa ... so "God is Energy and the forces in nature"!?!? Not a Entity? Not a thinking, intellectual, purposeful, motivated BEING of some kind (look'n roughly Human since we're made in his/her image)? God's more like, I dunno ... a AAA Battery and a rain drop or puff of wind or something? Maybe like some kind of electro-mechanical device like a cooling pump motor at a Nuclear reactor?!?! Spooky!

The Lord is a person and we were created in her image. But there is more to God than the Lord. God (Energy) created the Lord and is her husband. Isaiah 54:5. The Devil is a father and a son. Adam (Satan) and Jesus (Lucifer). In Israel, the Lord is God and we are not to worship energy, we are to worship the Lord.

I cannot defend a lot of the judgments in the OT. There is also such a thing as collective sin. I never hear about any major natural disasters happening in Israel. I don't think God causes these things but she does allow them to happen. When God comes, she will "shake terribly the earth". Isaiah 2:21. There will be multitudes of earthquakes all over the world pretty much at the same time. Even Israel will not escape because all flesh is corrupted.

I might be an ignorant Bible scholar, but could you elaborate on your examples. You seem to imply that the Bible describes God being beaten by an iron chariot, that God forces people to eat their own children, and that God punishes men by having their wives raped in the street. Perhaps there is some portion of the Bible that I missed, but I don't remember those sections.

That which, what, or whom, one loves, seeks and desires to serve above all else, is their 'god'.

And atheists see their version of a god ("I",ego,id,self,pri de) each and every time they view their reflected "image"!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2...

Someone had commented:
------
"That's just terrible logic, atheism isn't a religion. Humanism is, Taoism or Buddhism are.... That's as sad an argument as the one fascists give. Context folks, context."
------
And i responded:

TRUTH FOLKS, TRUTH!

Philosophers, theo'ry'logians, pharisee's, the worldly and/or religious ones all love logic and context, and record such on "colored marks written on a dead tree, and then bind them in fabrication"!

Thankfully Faith defies, and rejoices against logic!

And that which IS Spirit and IS TRUTH needs be received, not logicized within the minds of educated worldly men who but carry on the legacy of the pharisee's, theo'ry'logians and philosophers.

Simply, "the unlearned and ignorant men" embraced The TRUTH, FAITH, LOVE, PEACE,,,, ALL that is TRULY GOOD! And sought naught but that which IS of The SPIRIT that defies and trumps logic!(Acts 4:13)

Simply, logic is for losers, for FAITH wins The Victory!(I John 5:4)

Once again: "Atheists are not religious" you say?

You err greatly, for that which, what, or whom, one loves, seeks and desires to serve above all else, is their 'god'.

And atheists see their version of a god ("I",id,ego,self,pri de) each and every time they view their reflected "image"!

Yet Hope IS Alive! For all bound in the chains of "strong delusion" that is this evil world and/or religion's way.......(II Thessalonians 2:10-12, John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

Because TRUTH IS! and Miracles do happen.......

And as Mahatma Gandhi testified, "GOD has no religion"!

And he testified, "If christians would really live according to the teachings of their christ, as found in the bible, all of India would be christian today”.......

And "The Word of TRUTH" testifies, there is but One "Pure Religion and Undefiled"!(James 1:27)

Not a system but the Active Faith of those who have been "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! Those "sons of Our FATHER and GOD" who have their portion !NOW! in HIS Family, of "WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named".......(John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, I John 3:1-2, Philippians 2:15, Ephesians 3:15)

"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH!(Galatians 6:10)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2...

Simply, ALL other religion IS "IMPURE and DEFILED"!

"Come Out of her(babel/confusion/babylon\wo rld\religion), MY people!" (Revelations 18:4)

Be of The Faithful who seek to follow Immanuel The Anointed One(Messiah) on "The Narrow Way" that IS "The Way to The TRUTH of The Life"!(Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)

For we have our portion !NOW! in The Family of "Our FATHER and GOD", "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named", and so it is that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven"!(Ephesians 3:15, Philippians 3:20)

"The Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH.......(Galatians 6:10)

And NEW "Jerusalem which IS above IS free, and IS !NOW! the mother of us all (sons of Our FATHER and GOD"!(Galatians 4:26)

Sadly, those bound in the chains of "strong delusion", that are fabricated by pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters, choose to follow "the broad way to destruction' for they "love this evil world" and "their own self("I",ego,id,prid e)life in and of it"!(Matthew 7:14, John 12:25, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2...

So it is that because of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters "The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken of".......(II Peter 2:1-3)

By defending religion, otherwise ordinary people reveal their mental illnesses to atheists, instead of the doctors that should be treating them.
