I say "unnecessarily" because the INEQUALITY deliberately deprives the inferiors of equality of opportunity without permission.
The consequence for mankind consisted of thousands of years of animal slaughter and bloodletting to "appease" the angry deity. WTF?
There is a disturbing mental disorder in which a parent deliberately poisons their own children for an outrageous purpose: the parent THEN becomes the Caretaker/rescuer; selfless and loving in the eyes of others. Munchausen by proxy syndrome, it is called.
Does this sound even a little like God?
By creating humans inferior and presenting Himself as Superior--human aspirations for wanting to be like their Father (knowing good and bad) led them to disobey. That was their MOTIVE, mind you--not to hurt anybody or steal anything--only to BE LIKE GOD (their Father). For that, they must die?? For that, they must be rescued? ONE LAST POINT If Jehovah is a God of JUSTICE (you get from Him what you deserve)--then how can sinful humans "deserve" to be rescued through forgiveness?
Grace is termed "underserved" kindness---right?
How is it Justice if it is "underserved"?
Remember John 3:16? For God SO LOVED THE WORLD... To love those who do not deserve love is a self-contradiction because it violates God's own standards of perfection. Why impose such standards in the first place?
I asked: "What would we think about a person who lived alone in the dark for years and years on purpose?" I would think: INSANE
The God who operates within the Old Testament and New is two kinds of crazy.
I think to suffer a mental disorder from all that alone time in the dark is not unusual.
What do you think?
