Is the Bible the WORD of God or the WORD of Satan?
Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuousdebaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictivenesswith which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent thatwe call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history ofwickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part,I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel. [Thomas Paine, TheAge of Reason]
As to the book called the bible, it is blasphemy to call itthe Word of God. It is a book of lies and contradictions and a history of badtimes and bad men. [Thomas Paine, writing to Andrew Dean August 15, 1806]
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the mostunpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust,unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; amisogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal,pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
― Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
Many intelligent men have condemned the Bible and it’s Godas completely immoral. Be they from ancient days or more modern times, themorality of God has been rejected by moral men and legislators of the laws wemostly all live under. Never has biblical laws and commandments been showndesirable for most of us to live under.
Christians tend not to like to discuss the morals taught bythe Bible. The fact that Christians do not promote their laws over secular lawindicate that they are aware of the immoral nature of their genocidal sonmurdering God and the draconian laws that Christians would put in place.
Satan is said to be able to deceive the whole world with hisGod given power and dogma says that he has dominion over the earth. Mostbelievers say that the bible is the word of God even though it shows God in aless than favorable light even when compared to Satan. Even Christians admitthis and when they do they fall back on their standard excuse of God being ableand justified in doing whatever he likes to us, moral or not, because he ownsus. That is a cop out to my way of thinking.
Satan has the power to deceive the whole world.
Is the WORD of God, --- because of the fact that it showsGod to be more Satanic-like than God-like, --- really the WORD of Satan and notof God?
