Default Christians are more moral than Yahweh and Jesus. So why worship them?

Christians are more moral than Yahweh and Jesus. So why worship them?

The Bible contains many instances that show Yahweh doing things that no moral human would do. Not even the most right-wing Christian theist.

If you Christians had God’s power, in Noah’s days, you Christians would not use Genocide against man and beast on the earth. Jesus said he came to cure those in need, not kill them, so you would cure those in Noah’s day and would not kill them all. Right?

In Egypt, you Christians would not harden Pharaoh’s heart but would leave it soft and let him let the Jews go. You would not punish the first born for what their parents did. If anything, you would punish the guilty and not the innocent. Right?

To the many other instances where God ordered massacres of babies, you Christians would not, as your better morals would make you care or cure and not kill. Right?

Christians and Muslim thus recognize their better morals. That being the case, why have you Christians and Muslims chosen to follow a God whose morals are inferior to your own?

Religions are supposed to be all about morals, yet Christians seem to ignore that their morals and ethics are better than Yahweh’s by a long shot. Right?

Why do you follow Yahweh, knowing that your morals are above Yahweh’s?

DL

I don't think you'll find many people here worshipping Christians.

The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much in the same way as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect, over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked; His wrath towards you burns like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else but to be cast into the fire; He is of purer eyes than to bear to have you in His sight; you are ten thousand times more abominable in His eyes than the most hateful venomous serpent is in ours.

Venomous serpents really get a bad rap.

Back in Genesis times, we had talking snakes - the prime example being the one that persuaded Eve to eat the forbidden fruit that God had thoughtfully put in the garden as a deliberate temptation.

But God must have been angry with the snake, and in retribution struck all snakes dumb from that day on. So now snakes can't defend themselves and, as a result, are persecuted .

We'll gloss over the fact that God made the snake, and Eve in the first place, and because of his omniscience would have known exactly what was going to happen. Christians aren't supposed to think these things.

And then later he sent his son to put right his mistakes - but of course he would have known he would need to do that before he started everything - and he would know how things were going to turn out for his son, and for everyone else too.

Being omniscient must be kinda boring. I expect that's why God has moved on to tormenting other parts of his universe, and we've not seen much of him around Earth recently. Perhaps he regards the whole Earth and humans thing as a failed experiment - but how could it possibly have failed when it was created by a perfect all-knowing god?

No wonder Christians talk about "The Great Mystery." I can at least agree with them about that.

Which Christians? The ones who equate guns and Trump with God, or the ones who solicit donations from gullible poor people to buy private jets and build anti-evolution theme parks?

Cute, but not what I meant. They've got no use for that cissy socialist reformer. They like fire-n-brimstone Yahweh.

Yep.

It takes a genocidal prick who hates everyone they hate to appease their the insecurities that had them join their cult in the first place.

I would pity them if they did not bring out my dislike for them for all the harm they continue to do in society.
