Yahweh, it is written, created us in his image.

He is described as a vile genocidal and infanticidal god, a demiurge to us Gnostics Christians, and is responsible for a religion that has become homophobic and misogynous and who grew Christianity by inquisitions and murder.

This is not surprising given that so many of Christianity’s moral tenets are immoral. Christianity lacks moral tenets with which to convert. It takes pressure and force to believe the weird Christian take on the otherwise decent Jewish beginnings of their religion and god. Christians should have usurped some decent god as without Midrash, Yahweh is more like an evil Satan than a good god.

If you think you are created in Yahweh’s image, and able to do his evil and good deeds, are you happy about it?

If you do not think you are up to Yahweh’s evil ways, are you happy about it?

For someone that doesn't believe in any God, the OP sure seems to hate what doesn't exist.
How about just letting folks believe what they want as we puny humans really don't have a clue either way? :dunno:

Your snake avatar suits you perfectly.
Thank you.

Scriptures praise it.

Your deflection shows that you cannot defend or do apologetics for the prick Yahweh.

All here will see your incompetence.

The Christian and Muslim use of inquisitions and jihads, and their homophobic and misogynous teachings, you like them believing even as those continue to harm the innocent.

You show that you do not live by the Golden Rule.

To let people hurt others without caring, is not a good character trait.

Before he fell from grace, man bore God's image. Since reconciliation on the Cross, man bears His image again.

If you wish not to be a part of that, that's your prerogative.

How God's image depends on grace? What does 'created in God's image' mean then, according to your view?

All through the Old Testament, after the Garden of Eden, when the "holy people" spent their time engaged in debauchery, drunkenness, incest, violence, adultery, the secret arts, and all the rest - all through their history plagued with the fruits of idolatry, ultimately resulting in their divorce from God - do you think they were bearing God's image?

I think that 'in God's image' means the ability to create and having mind.

You are not pleased with 'holy people' of the past. Okay. Are there 'holy people' now who dont engage in all those sins you mentioned?

After all the adulteries of the faithless one, Israel, God finally cut her loose (Jer 3:8).

Here's a bit of history for you on the Jewish Age:

Though a valiant effort on the part of the chosen, the Age of the Law and the Prophets accounted for nothing. Priests sacrificed animal after animal on the altar, the blood of each availing little more than temporary absolution. Prophets uttered prophecy after prophecy purportedly from God, the veracity of each by law under scrutiny. For her generations of this repetition and uncertainty, Israel habitually wandered, and so received her certificate of divorce from God in the eighth century BC when Assyria conquered her. God, however, refused to forget His people, and Cyrus the Great, the Persian who defeated Babylon, commissioned the exiles to return to Judah and Benjamin in the southern territory of Judea to restore their temple and priestly order. But then Judea would receive her divorce certificate in the first century AD when Rome would conquer her, and the nation would never return to her first love; Israel would utterly and forever forfeit any matrimonial connection to her Creator.

The holy people were idolatrous, adulterous sinners, not unlike their pagan neighbors. A new holy people - the Christians - would be the ones to bear fruit for God and inherit the kingdom (Mt 21:43). The holy people now do not worship idols. They bear God's image.

You seem to not know of a few quotes that Jesus taught.

Let me refresh your memory and perhaps we can chat.

On Jesus dying for you.

It takes quite an inflated ego to think a god would actually die for you, after condemning you unjustly in the first place.

You have swallowed a lie and don’t care how evil you make Jesus to keep your feel good get out of hell free card.

It is a lie, first and foremost because, like it or not, having another innocent person suffer or die for the wrongs you have done, --- so that you might escape responsibility for having done them, --- is immoral. To abdicate your personal responsibility for your actions or use a scapegoat is immoral.

You also have to ignore what Jesus, as a Jewish Rabbi, would have taught his people.

Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

Deuteronomy 24:16 (ESV) "Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin.

Psa 49;7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

There is no way that you would teach your children to use a scapegoat to escape their just punishments and here you are doing just that.

Jesus is just a smidge less immoral than his demiurge genocidal father, and here you are trying to put him as low in moral fiber as Yahweh.

DL

Like orthodox Christians, you seem to think Christ's purpose for coming was to die. And not only to die, but to die so people can go to heaven. You attack an escapist theology, a false theology. You attack windmills. You waste your time.

One thing is certain: no increase of virtue or morality in the world came from Gnostic Christians.

In the garden, God fellowshipped with man; through the garden, He was glorified on the earth. In the kingdom, which includes the church, God again fellowships with man; through the kingdom, He again is glorified on the earth.
