Proof of god is a moral question. Do you see the morals shown for god as good or evil?

Proof of god is a moral question. Do you see the morals shown for god as good or evil?

 

Religions tout themselves as being the final word in moral issues, even though secular law has rejected as too barbaric most of those laws. Not that they were original to Christianity as many of the older traditions had variants of the same laws.   

 

To me, a moral god would cure and never kill. That is the position Jesus took towards the non-believers.

 

Jesus said to love all people including your enemies and if Jesus is Yahweh then he too must love all and save all just as Jesus would.  

 

Jesus would say that God killing instead of curing is evil.

 

Jesus would say that God curing instead of killing is good.

 

If god cures instead of killing then there is no hell as a good god or Jesus would have no use for purposeless torture and death.

 

Thoughts?

God is only God because he kills and allows others to kill?

Is that what you're saying here?

No. As usual your reading comprehension skills are found to be lacking.

Then what are you saying?  It seems to say exactly:  If God didn't kill or allow someone to kill, he wouldn't be a God at all.

How is that not saying real Gods kill and allow others to kill for them?

The issue is with your statement here. ^ That doesn't fit with what I said nor with what you now say here:

To put it real simply, saying that if God wasn't the one casing people to die He wouldn't be a God, is on no way the same as saying (as you said) that God is 'only' God 'because he kills and allows others to kill'.

You still seem to be saying that God is God because he kills and allows others to kill for him.

So hard to get a straight answer from you.

Uh, no he didn't.  He told his followers that God would kill, so they didn't have to.  Essentially he told them to leave the killing to God (Romans 12.9).   God promises non-believers that they'll suffer eternal hellfire unless they convert.  Which would be worse than death, imo, if meant literally.

I read it as part of what makes him God is the power of righteously determing who shall live and who shall die.  Without that, he cannot be God regardless of any other attributes.

It's your thinking that's twisted. Makes it impossible for you to understand anything that isn't.

Pretty much, though I would rather say the fact that He is God makes Him capable of that than that it is what makes Him God.

Jesus said he came to serve those who needed saving, not for those who did not when his disciple chastise him for hanging out with drinkers and prostitutes etc.

I agree that he also would have taught to leave the killing to god. It would have been nice if his church had that ideology as then they would not have murdered so many with their inquisitions.

I agree that the hell thing adds purposeless torture before the second and final death of the souls.

That is why I think Yahweh to be quite the vile prick whom no one should idol worship.

You are correct, but do you think Yahweh to be a moral enough entity to judge righteously?

Gnostic Christianity has tied righteousness to equality and that is why we are a universalist religion with a heaven but no hell.

We all contribute to what we all are and do and thus should all have the same hell or heaven, punishment or reward after death.

I E. Hitler was not born to be what he ended up being. All who reared him or facilitated his rise are just as guilty, collectively, as Hitler was.

Is there such a thing in Christianity as a 'second death', death of the soul?

Purposeless life must lead to hell.

We all contribute but we don't contribute the same. Some contributions are more negative others more positive. And there might somewhere be a man in seclusion from the rest of the population, what would happen to him?

I don't believe there is a Yahweh or an Allah. Inasmuch that Gods seem to have the same motivations and behavior as humans, I can only definitely say sometimes.

Yes. Look up the lake of fire where hell and it's souls are supposed to be dumped into at the end of days.

I would say that such would be hell but we seem to be on the same page regardless of the language.

He would likely die.

The way Socrates put it was in a question. Who would make his shoes?

Have you noticed how modern people who say they are going it alone these days in the wild are there with their rifles, bullets and all weather gear, all made by others.

I agree that we all contribute good or evil in various degrees. That does not change the logic and reason of universalism.

I do not think most of us are evil enough to use genocide or infanticide and kill the way Yahweh is shown to have done, but ok.
