BTW - I also don't call murdering and killing whole villages - "The Beauty of God".<quoted text>
New Age Spiritual Leader:
If a beautiful mountain scene reflects the Beauty of God, then why can't the Bible reflect the Beauty of God?(That Beauty is beyond our definition of beauty, because it is only a reflection.)
To see the Beauty of God in/beyond all things, seems a worthy goal.
FYI - if you want to promote the selling points of the Bible, there isn't any. Why do I say this?
Well, because every trait that is in the Bible, can be acquired without any belief in any god. I don't need the Bible to tell me to love my neighbor. I also don't need it to tell me not to steal, murder, lie, etc.
I thank my parents for allowing me to be myself and to express these traits openly and with honesty.
Christianity is so egotistical, it believes that those "evil traits" are postively enforced. Again I disagree.
I find no positives in killing, "keeping the spoils for themselves" or other anti-commandments to be anything positive.
Why accept these horrendous acts as the "Beauty of God"?
Do you enjoy a good rumble?
