    Christians judge god as good. Gnostic Christians judge god as evil. Which religion is correct?

    “The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” Richard Dawkins.

    I say shame on all Christians for not judging justly and being morally corrupt.

    I offer as evidence of Yahweh’s corruption one simple fact. 1Peter 1:20 0 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.

    This is god setting a bribe price to reverse his usual justice of punishing the innocent to punishing the guilty. This shows his moral and ethical corruption. It also show Jesus as just as corrupt as he went along with it.

    Gen3;22 Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil;
    1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good.

    What is your judgement?

    God made good AND evil. So he is both.

    Isaiah 45:7
    I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.



    If the scripture is true & correct, then God is fully capable of evil, IMO

    It is also possible that God is neither good nor evil, cruel nor kind. Evil for example arises in humans who have uncontrollable greed or pain or a dysfunctional mind that drives them to do bad things to other humans.

    Which god? The Christian satanic god or the Gnostic Christian god?

    Yours is a faith based statement that does not tell us which religion has the best ideology.

    Is your moral sense so poor that you cannot tell a good god from a satanic god?

    That would apply to all gods.

    I mention two in the O.P.

    Which one provides the best ideology?

    Are you capable of making that moral judgement?

    True but that is not relevant to the question I posed.

    Care to make your judgement known?

    Yet Christians have judged their god as good.

    Are they correct?

    I'm assuming that there is only one god, and god made everything. I didn't realize that you were a multi-theist.
