The World’s Oldest Wikipedia Article
The bible is the world’s oldest wikipedia article, made and or compiled by man.
Man has compiled and written from man’s perspective, using man’s understanding to explain what happened in the world around them.
It was written by the winners and losers of war. It was written by the common man, the pharisee, and kings. They used analogy, superstition, oral history, religion, and their understanding of science to explain God. You know that guy/gal/being that currently has 40K denominations all saying they have the correct understanding of God.
So when we say “God ordered people to kill babies, murder whole people groups, enslave people, and gave the ok for god’s elect people to rape women, I’m gonna take a moment and reflect on that critically.
If that is the god we are told to serve/worship I’m going to call that god a monster and not a loving being.
If that god is more wrathful than loving, not a g_d I want to trust in. That g_d is a monster.
“Love me or else!”
Not feeling it.
