I’m an atheist.
Let’s assume I am wrong, I am willing to be.
Let’s give people a God, let’s even make him the God of the bible…..
Does he deserve to be worshipped and obeyed?
If so why?
If so, why does his abhorrent actions not morally make you question allegiance to him?
Does his authority alone allow him to murder and drown and order war, to throw people into a lake of fire?
If a king proclaimed authority or even earned it democratically, does that power grant loyalty despite abhorrent acts?
Read the bible, if any king or leader performed the acts of the God of the bible, he would be considered the MOST evil leader that had ever existed. Forget Hitler, God drowned a planet, ordered the slicing open of pregnant bellies and plans infinite destruction for those than don’t do as he asks…..
I just don’t get it anymore, as an informed adult, free to think….how do people reason around this obvious moral obstacle?
