    Why is it that after 2000 years after the last books of the Bible were written it is imperfect infallible men/women who defend and explain what was written back then ,but we hear nothing ,not a peep out of God himself .

    And there has been so much controversy over what this or that scripture actually means according to imperfect human beings and still God is silent .

    And with all of the new state of the art technology we have today surely the creator of the universe could simply explain what his purpose is to ALL OF HUMANITY and not just a select few .?

    He could state what he wants of humans utilizing the many forms of media ,print,digital,social,such as all that exist today ,radio ,Tv, etc,etc, .

    Their is no excuse for GOD / JEHOVAH not to inform the people of the world what he requires of them by the technologies that are now available .

    Instead of leaving it to a pathetic group who are still relying on 2000 year old tactics.

    Is he prejudiced biased about certain races ?

    In the new testament we see a gradual process of turning Jesus the man into "god the son".

    Paul - resurrection

    Mark - baptism

    Matthew - conception/birth

    John - pre-human

    Early christians found themselves worshipping Jesus in practice but were embarrassed by what amounted to polytheism. The doctrine of the trinity with its convoluted waffle about substance and essence, and the endless arguments about terms like, ousia, homoousios, hypostasis etc is risible.

    It is impossible to state the trinity simply in your own words without committing a heresy. Go ahead and try it.

    “Their is no excuse for GOD / JEHOVAH not to inform the people of the world what he requires of them”

    Didn’t Jesus tell everyone that God requires perfection because he is perfect?

    I don’t know how he could have been more clear than that.

    Some eastern religions aspire to something similar with numerous do-over reincarnations.

    In a contextual sense both Jesus and Yahweh were identified as lords in the bible.

    The ideological concept of a coming savior was probably derived by the ancients by the visual appearance of the Moon appearing at night, a light that was to come and rid the earth of darkness/evil.

    Its noted that other ancient civilizations had mythological expressions of a coming savior distinct from the ancient Hebrews.

    Human ignorance is a indefensible fact.
