.....Im not scared because I doubt this Yahweh character can even carry his plans out. He's failed at literally everything so far. I mean, if you cant beat iron chariots how can you beat a steal car?
This got me thinking......
Yahweh was defeated by iron chariots, as you say. But he also - despite repeated and visible interventions in the world - was unable to convince the vast, vast majority of people that he was "The One". In the years BC, despite being the ONLY god in existence (according to him), and despite being regularly "in your face", by the year zero his chosen people were a minority group of vagabonds treated as second-class citizens by anyone who even had heard of them. So despite all the posturing and bragging in the OT, he doesn't seem to have acheived much with his creation.
Then we get the New T, with its New Rules and Covenent...wait, what? A third of the Bible, devoted to giving a message that was either different (so why the change?), or just repeating a message that had been unsuccessfully delivered over the past few millennia. So - what - tenth time lucky at best? What price an omnimax god who can't get his message across the first time?
Ah, but we apparently needed a sacrifice.....in which case, surely a better sacrifice to let Herod slay the Christ-child at the beginning? A total innocent, god's embodiment on earth, cut down while still a baby? Now THAT is a message.
But no....JC gets to live for thirty-odd years, roam the region, and spout his new/old message (see above). And then gets nailed up. Am I the only one who suspects that maybe Yahweh had a quite different plan in mind for JC, but was - once again - thwarted by the people of Earth, and was forced to spin a yarn along the lines of "oh yes, I meant
that to happen all along!"?
Especally because - since then - there has not been hide nor hair of Yahweh on Earth. Maybe it DID all go toes up - he embodied on Earth, died, went to hell.....and is still there now and forever, due to another monumental screw-up in his plans?
