On a separate note, I just realized that I confused the debate about Job to be the debate about the question "WWGHA?" earlier (the last post I made in this topic)! I did so by going into the question "WWGHA?" which is the heart of the matter in the debate with Velkyn, not with Pianodwarf, and I quoted Voter from the "WWGHA?" debate topic.
Would transfer my post there, because I meant to post it in the Voter vs. Velkyn topic!
As for the matter of slavery, Voter cannot grasp the fact
that slavery was allowed and IS
the Word of God in the Bible, which is timeless
, regardless of the method they transport the slaves, where they were sent to, how they were treated, and all other ways/concepts about slaves in different time periods. And of course, that Job did not deserve to be tortured by Satan, the Wonder Demon, for the glory of being part of a Bible story and to be God's "toy" to show off to his enemy, Satan. They are both like little children! Observe:
Satan: I am evil, and I want to let you know that I don't think there is ONE person on Earth who'd still believe in you AND not hate you if you
YHWH: PFFT, keep dreaming.
Satan: Are you chicken?
YHWH: -Matter of factly voice-
Well, as a matter of fact
, I DO
have people who'd still love and believe in me deeply if they knew that I actually let you
Satan: Hah! Who is this "champion" of yours?
YHWH: His name is Job! He is a great man and believer of me, and I am very proud
to have someone so devout and as good as he is.
Satan: Will you let your "great pride and joy" be tortured, despite the probability that he may hate you
in the end?
YHWH: Hell fucking yeah.
Satan: You are a liar and you over-exaggerate. Seriously, wanna bet?
YHWH: Fuck yeah, I'll bet. I'm no loser, and plus, I know
he isn't going to hate me.
Satan: You sick bastard. Fine, I'll torture him, and we'll both see how he does.
YHWH: Fine! Do what you want to him. I know everything afterall, so in the end, despite him being horribly tortured, I'll win.
Satan: Again, you sick bastard. -Goes to torture Job-
Don't you dare forget that YOU approved of this
YHWH: I won't, and it won't matter in the end anyway because I will prevail! Those torture wounds? Pfft, I'll just heal him. None of it will matter! And since I am infallible and great, I won't have to explain myself any further than "Job believed in me and loved me to the very end, and that's the only thing that matters if you are one going to believe in me." See? Very simple, Satan. Everyone is satisfied! And those torture wounds will be largely ignored, disacknowledged, or people will say "but he was right in the end, so although Job was tortured, it doesn't matter!" Otherwise, I'm punishing the people who DON'T agree with what I did by spiting them and sending them to hell for all eternity.
