    Default God. A Serial Killer!

    I've heard that the Christian God is the worst murderer of all.

    and I ran into this just now:

    Deaths in the Bible: God - 2,270,365 not including the victims of Noah's flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, or the many plagues, famines, fiery serpents, etc because no specific numbers were given. Satan - 10.

    Thoughts? victor? I'm open.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    why singling out the Christian's take on God? If God is there, then he is God and a murderer regardless of one's religious affiliation. God's characteristics don't change depending on what adjectives the word is attached to....

    or do they? I dunno, to me christian God/Muslim God/Jewish God/spinoza's God/Einsteins' God all refer to the same entity/concept, but then again I am one of those crazy ass Pragmatists

    I say analyze the concept of God as murderer itself, not those who are setting it forward.

    I originally had put just God but decided to single out Christianity because those numbers are from the Bible.

    I catch your point. And what I think is that Christianity is written and contrived on some pretty ass-backwards, ridiculous ideas and principles.

    I definitely agree. So we can look at the christian confusion, or we can ask what you really wanted to here: Does God kill, and if so, why?

    I don't really have a good answer. I think it's possible that God exists and knows about what's going to happen, yet does nothing to stop it.


    It is said God constantly is "playing Dice" and even though he might know all outcomes of innocents dying in natural disasters, it's not really "His hand" doing the killing, but rather the mechanisms he has set into motion (our universe)

    does that still make him a murderer?

    Is Jesus in that figure?

    A serial killer commits evil because he takes what is not his.
    God owns everything.
    He cannot steal.

    How come nobody ever complains about how people have treated God?
    As if God owes us and we don't owe him anything.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    well if that's true, then our lives and freedoms don't belong to us, do they? we're all Him and vice versa.

    No. Creator and creation are distinct. Nothing I said would necessitate any other conclusion.

    I have two things to say at this point..

    one) If there is a God, then he only seeks to preserve the balance of life and death, and
    two) I think there should be a (stricter) separation between what thought to be God and what is thought to be Christianity.
