“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Read the judgment Obadiah recorded against the Edomite civilization. Compared to the final end of Israel.
Admittedly it has not all come true yet. Its
about 80% fulfilled. We expect the final 20% during the return of Messiah.

*[[Oba 1:10-20]] KJV*%v 10% For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.%v 11% In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.%v 12% But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.%v 13% Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity; %v 14% Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.%v 15% For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.%v 16% For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.%v 17% But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.%v 18% And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it.%v 19% And they of the south shall possess the mount of Esau; and they of the plain the Philistines: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.%v 20% And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south.

There is no record in history of a man by the name Jesus, who was crucified by Romans.
Even Romans do NOT have any record of such a killing in their archives. Nada! Nein! Zilsch!
The only source is the NT, which is not reliable and was cooked up by the writers for the Church.
This dead and resurrected Jesus was sold to pagan Gentiles, who bought the bullshit story.
You bull-shit BMZ!

Number of scholars.[38][39][40][41] Roman historian Tacitus referred to Christus and his execution by Pontius Pilate in his Annals (written ca. AD 116), book 15, chapter 44.[42] The very negative tone of Tacitus' comments on Christians make the passage extremely unlikely to have been forged by a Christian scribe [43] and the Tacitus reference is now widely accepted as an independent confirmation of Christ's crucifixion.[44]

Bart D. Ehrman states that the existence of Jesus and his crucifixion by the Romans is attested to by a wide range of sources including Josephus and Tacitus.[45]John P. Meier views the crucifixion of Jesus as historical fact and states that based on the criterion of embarrassment Christians would not have invented the painful death of their leader.[46] Meier states that a number of other criteria, e.g. the criterion of multiple attestation (i.e. confirmation by more than one source), the criterion of coherence (i.e. that it fits with other historical elements) and the criterion of rejection (i.e. that it is not disputed by ancient sources) help establish the crucifixion of Jesus as a historical event.[47] Biblical scholar John Dominic Crossan, highly skeptical with regard to the Gospel accounts of miracles, wrote in 1995

That (Jesus) was crucified is as sure as anything historical can ever be, since both Josephus and Tacitus... agree with the Christian accounts on at least that basic fact.[48]

Yahweh, the snake god, calls the serpents to attack the Israelites . They killed many people. Yahweh, then tells Moses to fashion a brass snake around a pole and that all those bitten would not die if they gazed upon it. Here is your true god. So who was Jesus?

A prime example of why mankind will never be able to rule himself. He will ignore even one shred of evidence to cling to his hatred. And he will walk into wars and murders (against one another) in the name of Yahweh/Allah, the moon/snake god. All because they couldn't accept that " the deceiver" bested them. Lol, Pride cometh before the FALL!

So the first question that occurs to me about your story is.....are there multiple gods or is there only one God? Is the "good" female god a good god and male gods are gods as well and equal to the female god but they are bad gods? How does the story go exactly?

Is it possible that you do the same thing because you have always hated commonly held beliefs (for whatever reasons that you have) and this ties into the reason for your current beliefs?

Oh no. No no no. Of course not. Hey, look. Find whatever belief floats your boat. If it works for you then..........it must be right. Your beliefs sure solve a lot of potential problems that a female could possibly have when reading the obviously male centric Bible. so alternate routes and opinions from those that don't feel it meets their needs are to be logically expected. What happens after that sometimes starts to get illogical. But anyway, is there any God or Gods at all? And if so, how many?.

Why did God bring the serpents on the first place. If you're going to criticize God using Hos own book - at least be honest with the context.

The true God has the power to judge sin and save sinners from sin.
The God of the Bible has demonstrated both powers.
What have Pagan gods ever actually done?

21:4-9 The children of Israel were wearied by a long march round the land of Edom. They speak discontentedly of what God had done for them, and distrustfully of what he would do. What will they be pleased with, whom manna will not please? Let not the contempt which some cast on the word of God, make us value it less.

It is the bread of life, substantial bread, and will nourish those who by faith feed upon it, to eternal life, whoever may call it light bread. We see the righteous judgment God brought upon them for murmuring. He sent fiery serpents among them, which bit or stung many to death. It is to be feared that they would not have owned the sin, if they had not felt the smart; but they relent under the rod. And God made a wonderful provision for their relief. The Jews themselves say it was not the sight of the brazen serpent that cured; but in looking up to it, they looked up to God as the Lord that healed them. There was much gospel in this. Our Saviour declared, Joh 3:14,15, that as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so the Son of man must be lifted up, that whatsoever believeth in him, should not perish.

Compare their disease and ours. Sin bites like a serpent, and stings like an adder. Compare the application of their remedy and ours. They looked and lived, and we, if we believe, shall not perish. It is by faith that we look unto Jesus, Heb 12:2. Whosoever looked, however desperate his case, or feeble his sight, or distant his place, was certainly and perfectly cured.

The Lord can relieve us from dangers and distresses, by means which human reason never would have devised. Oh that the venom of the old serpent, inflaming men's passions, and causing them to commit sins which end in their eternal destruction, were as sensibly felt, and the danger as plainly seen, as the Israelites felt pain from the bite of the fiery serpents, and feared the death which followed! Then none would shut their eyes to Christ, or turn from his gospel. Then a crucified Saviour would be so valued, that all things else would be accounted loss for him; then, without delay, and with earnestness and simplicity, all would apply to him in the appointed way, crying, Lord, save us; we perish! Nor would any abuse the freeness of Christ's salvation, while they reckoned the price which it cost him.

His followers and people that he cured. But yes, the Romans didn't even know who he was and could care less. He was the Jew's problem as far as they were concerned, not theirs. With the logic you are using, you are making it sound like they were expected to think he was God or even a Messiah before they crucified him. They didn't think any such thing, which is why he was crucified. Only the Jews thought he was claiming to be God, and this was one of the reasons they wanted him killed. Other than that, what crime did he really ever commit? The worst thing would be overturning the money tables, but that's about it. Hardly enough for a death sentence. The Jewish authorities felt he was claiming himself to be God and that was blasphemous according to them. The Romans could have cared less at all as long as he didn't bother them or publicly put himself above Caesar or talk about revolutions..
It was the plan of the cowardly father! He sent his unsuspecting son among the murderous Christ killers hoping they would murder him and they obliged!!
What a way to save the gentiles from their curse to give them eternal life while making sure that the murderous Christ killers would be cursed with no chance of eternal life!!!!
It really makes sense, not!

Persecution complex or what, Alex. Did you take my challenge and test the system? Of course not.

And, you should complain anyway. Criticize Muhammad in the media and see what happens. They riot in the Denmark. They swear out death warrants in England. If Jews reacted similarly, Shamama would be cowering in his house (j/k)

And, the Topix lawsuit had nothing to do with Jews or Rabbis.

Have you even seen a page of Tacitus and Josephus?

It is the Church that has created many fictitious characters and has also attributed a few lines to others' writings to show as if the bloody crucifixion took place. Christian accounts are all bullshit!

Historians write a few pages on a event, not just a few lines.

It is very simple, Sham. If Jesus had really been crucified, there would have been hundreds of reports, not just a few lines from a few fools.

Corruption and forgery were RAMPANT in the first century and continued to be rampant through the next six centuries.

It stopped only after the arrival of the printing press but by then Christianity had her LIES well established. That is exactly when the modern fraudulent translation of John's Satanic Verse John 1:1 became standard, even though it is blasphemous.

Actually the sacrifice for sin is perhaps the best attested doctrines in the Bible. Its literally found from Adam to Jesus.
So the fact you don't understand it means nothing - little man.
God does.
And it works for Him.
So.
It works for me too.

A hint.
If you think of God in terms of infinite holiness - you might get a gliimer.
But probably not.
