Plethora i am not able to quote now so i will come back to it later. I wanted to say in response to someone that god is a god of love but he is also a just god. He cant allow sin and wickedness to go unpunished. Sodom and gomorrah is an example of sin and moral abandonment. So are the rest of the conquests made joshua and also the state of the world directly before the flood. On another note: yes, women and child were killed and there are reasons. I can think of at least one. This isnt the most polished way to say it, but when you have weeds in your yard you remove them and they die. But you also have to remove the roots (children) for it to really be gone for good. God said to purge the evil from among you and also be holy because i am holy, and the people of israel were to live and populate that land so they removed the weeds.
We never see that your god is just. Per your own bible, this god intentionally makes sure that some people will never be able to “accept” him and he damns them for what he has made them unable to do. Your god killed a man who dared to try to keep his magic box upright. You god says that it will punish children for the acts of the parents (and why yes, it does contradict this, so much for your eternal truth from your god). Your god forced his will on a man so he could show off and killed many to also show off, people who had no choice in the matter. If one believes in original sin, this is more evidence that your god is unjust, punishing people for the actions of two, the actions that this god knew they would do and provided all of the means for the act to occur. Poor god, either intended for the snake to be there and for humanity to fall or was too stupid to realize what would happen.
In Soddom and Gomorrah, we have a city that is supposedly so very sinful, but oh this god’s man in the city offers his daughters to a supposedly rapacious crowd. What a good god there to approve of this act! It’s also nice to see that you think that anyone who doesn’t worship your god should be killed, even the children. How good of you, grasszilla, since you approve of genocide. Now, I’m going to guess that you’ll whine that you don’t approve of genocide but you have no choice since that’s what your god wants. Well, grasszilla, that makes your argument end up as “might equals right”, and shows your religion is really only based on fear and greed. How disgusting, at least other religions aren’t quite so primitive and pathetic as yours.
