I feel sorry for the flock & TV viewers who have to take their preachers words as legit & accurate, only because they think their pastors position makes them more qualified & educated. Surely they are being misslead by hacks who butcher the Bible and interps, because these people are just winging it and throwing dung against the wall to see what sticks and what garbage the people will buy. Example today a Preacher was talking about Creation of God and thus butchering Genesis 1:26 saying God was talking to himself, WTH? The plurality of "US" in that verse is the Head of Host speaking with the hosts not God speaking to himself. The term Image in the Hebrew used in Genesis, is a nature of ones being=Essence type image not using the Hebrew word for Physical image. So the head of hosts in the Olam Habah (world to come=future) is saying "let us" in the civilized age (order),create man in the uncivilized age (chaos), so that man can be in "our image" (more civilized). That is why Genesis says God created man not from nothing, but created order out of the chaos and brought it to form=hence being called Shalem (completeness/wholeness). So the hosts made man stop worshiping idols, stop sacrificing children, stop canibalism, stop mating with the other species that was slower ay evolving, that were canibals and did dispicable things. Taught them to stop being fooled by magic tricks and con men/false prophets. Taught them laws to live by and how to trat your neighbors. All to bring order to the chaos, civility to an uncivilized age. Since every action can have an equal opposite reaction, the task to bring this order can bring disorder in other ways through the process (clash of religions etc) thus sacrificing the hosts and their chosen position that needs to "Return" to their inheritence. But these clashes are inevitable anyway with or without the changes done by reshaping a disorderly uncivilized world. Hate religion all you want but imagine what the world would be with anarchy and total chaos like Vikings vs Ghengis Kahn vs Roman legions vs Belshazadar type rage around the globe at all times. The hosts warned about the Baal worship & false religionists, don't blame them for people falling for the opposite reaction(adversary).
