    Is God competent or incompetent?


    We are told in scriptures that evil begets evil and good begets good. God, as our creator, according to scriptures, creates us all as sinners, which many see as evil.


    God can thus be seen and judged as being the original sinner since the fruits of his labor (us) went bad or are born bad. A tree is known by its fruits. What else could come from a sinner tree but sin?


    I give God a fail on competence for the following reasons.

    God created heaven that produced Satan. Fail.

    God created Eden which produced Original Sin. Fail.

    God had to reboot creation with Noah’s flood. Fail.

    God sent his son to forgive mankind instead of stepping up himself. Fail, for moral reasons.

    God also had to create hell for his rejects which scriptures say will be the vast majority of us. Fail.


    Jesus said we would know his people by their works and deeds and if we believe that, then the Christian God would obviously be rejected by Jesus and agree with my fail judgement.


    Do you agree?


    Regards

    DL

    Note how they only attack the God of the Jews and Christians?

    Their venom just validates who the one true God is.

    Yeah, funny how that works... Believing god is great means you think everything god does is great, even when it clearly is awful. The Trump cult operates the same way.

    You forgot Islam. Why?

    And there arent too many other monotheistic religions out there. So, naturally, the discussion would focus on the major monotheistic religions.

    Come on, use your head.
