I remember reading the my book of bible stories when I was younger and it constantly referenced to Abraham being Jehovah's friend. If Jehovah made himself into a real being for a day, but he still had his almighty powers, what kinda friend do you think he would be? I honestly think that he would suck as a friend, especially when he didnt get things his way.
Does anyone think Jehovah would make a good friend?
He'd make an excellent friend for Hitler or Charles Manson and in a pinch, Satan.
Ooo, good question!
I see JH as co-dependent, needy, and constantly digging for complements.
I also see him as bi-polar in that sometimes he's peaceful and forgiving and others a warmonger.
I also see him as a flake with a changing mind all the time.
Couldn't count on this one for loyalty in the friendship, either.
I think he would kill me if I did do something that he wanted me to do. Well, he would tell me that I had 'the freedom of choice' and everything would be good for a while, but then, I think later on he would probably kill me for not doing what he wanted me to do. (I believe he would).
I dont know I've always pictured Jehovah looking like the green goblin from those spiderman movies.
I really do feel that "knowing god," having a relationship with him is pointless. You talk to him, he doesn't answer, you beg him to help you out when you're in trouble, he does nothing. He's liable to smite you for the smallest infraction. He gets angry if you don't give him all of your attention and adoration, even though he doesn't reciprocate. You're doing all of the work in the relationship.
He seems kinda like a jerk to me.
He would be a big baby always having to have things HIS way and changing rules of the game midstream.Also,the "not being able to walk away from a bet" thing would get old.
I think he would blame everything on satan if things went wrong in the friendship:
I tried to murder you the other day when we watched a violent and sexual movie=satan
You cheated on your spouse and I tried to kill you when you were coming out of your house=satan
You got cancer=satan
I tried to kill you cause your son or daughter was about to take a blood tranfusion=satan
Satan is the scapegoat....always.
Hey Jehovah, I heard from some of our friends that you were talking smack about me?
Jehovah: Couldnt have been me. I'm all powerful, all knowing, almighty. Had to have been satan.
Me: Oooookay, whatever you say Jehovah. Cause if I go against you, that means I'm dead right.
Jehovah: Right. Now lets go and take a walk together
Me: (Nervously) okay Jehovah.
LMAO Joliette! Classic thread. Exodus 4:24 is an example of Jehovah's irrationality. Moses is doing what he is told to do, but Jehovah tries to kill him anyway. If I saw Jehovah walking down the street I would wave at him, but definitely would not stop to talk!
