And ive not read a more graphic book filled with love, tolerance, mercy, historical facts, miracles, and genius that flow perfectly together
Yeah, I didn't read anything close to LOVE
when god murdered via drowning innocent newborn infants, toddlers, children, puppies, cats, lions, tigers, bears, (and somehow the birds, too
) for the wickedness of adult humans when he flooded the earth (Gen 6:7, 17
). Not sure how you didn't read it as anything other than unjust cruelty, irrational vengeance & insane hate.
I didn't read about any MERCY
when god threatened to have David's multiple wives raped in broad daylight for David's sin, then after David repents, is granted forgiveness but insisted David's on-the-way innocent baby die a slow week-long death (2 Sam 12:11-18
). Why you people read that as anything but unmerciful, cruel, and sadistic is mind-boggling.
I didn't read anything scientifically factual
when I read that God considers bats to be an unclean bird (Lev 11:13, 19 & Deut 14:11, 18 )
Even adolescents know bats are mammals, and don't lay eggs. Or that time when God will gather up the people of Judea "from the four corners of the earth" (Isaiah 11:12), you know because the earth is flat.
I didn't read anything as miraculous
when god sent two bears to rip up 42 little children for making fun of Elisha's bald head. (2 Kings 2:23-24
) Sounded cruel, evil, & spiteful to me. Nothing miraculous there to applaud, praise, or honor.
There was nothing I read that sounded GENIUS
in God's plan to have a chosen people because he said an uncircumcised boy is to be abandoned by his parents and community. (Gen 17:14
) Or how genius is it to create a law that states if a woman being raped doesn't yell loud enough during the rape, she is to be put to death (Deut. 22:23-24
) In what way should I praise that genius mind? Creativity for injustice & cruelty?
I didn't read about any TOLERANCE
when god decreed if a man has sex with another man to kill them both. (Lev 20:13
). Sounds like the definition of intolerance to me.
Because I actually read the Bible & comprehended it, I could literally go thru every verse from cover-to-cover and show you the cruelty, injustice, intolerance violence, hate, evilness attributed to God. You see, I am actually defending God.
An all-loving, all-merciful GOD could not commit the unforgivable crimes he's alleged to have committed. How you people gloss over this evil and chose to praise him for it is incomprehensible. Then you randomly cherry-pick a verse from either testament and conveniently deem it relevant to justify & inflict your intolerant political views on other adults is stupefying.
