Holy shit, you don't understand much do you. I have no problems with the Hebrews defending themselves, but God killing millions. Exactly how was God defending himself when he killed all of the Egyptian babies? How was God defending himself when he killed Apox. 20 million humans in a global flood? He killed a lot of Israelis also, 50,700 of them just for looking into the Ark Of The Covenant. Another 24,000 with a plague. How was he defending himself when he killed Lots wife? And finally, just to show you the difference between fighting in a war and killing just for the fun of it, as your God does. Your God sent 2 bears to rip apart 42 youths, they died in fear and agony, their crime for such a gruesome death? they mocked Elisha's bald head!!!! Nice God you worship there skippy.
You realize that it would be just were that god real and had we the power to kill it to do just that for the crimes it has committed against humanity and to release the souls in hell from their pointless torture. What monster in all of fiction has killed and tortured more souls? What creature has done us more damage than that?You know the story of Nineveh, right? Jonah was sent to Nineveh to tell them God was going to wipe them out. Destroy the entire city, everything. But Nineveh had a King that was wise and called for the entire city to fast and pray for Gods forgiveness and mercy.
God spared Nineveh and he would have spared all the others in your example if they had changed their ways and repented. God can show extreme mercy or extreme judgment. Lots wife was given instructions to not look back. She disobeyed and was lost to Gods judgment. Egypt was given ample warnings leading up to the first born dying. If they had placed lambs blood over their doorpost. They would too would have been saved. Remember the story of Jericho? God spared Rahab and her family because she asked for mercy. To show the completeness of Gods mercy and forgiveness. The lineage of Jesus came from Rahabs bloodline.
I don't expect you to agree with that. I understand that you cannot permit yourself to think such thoughts, and why. Instead, you'll think that might makes right, and say that if it created us, it's free to do as it likes with us.
But that's also part of the reason: the psychological terrorism.
By not being a believer, I am free to say those things to myself and to you.
I hope you're getting something of value in return for what you give up for your beliefs, which includes a part of your humanity - the part that has you defending the reputation of a creature like that out of fear of what it might do to you, and calling what it allegedly feels for you and what you feel for it love.
Sorry about being so blasphemous and unflattering about the faithful. It isn't my purpose to offend you. But you have shared your beliefs with us, and that is what I believe and how I feel. I strongly disapprove of the effect that the church has on the intellectual and moral growth of so many people.
