Crazy Things About Bible God That Make You Think?

God judges us not by our character and deeds in life but solely by whether or not we worshiped him strongly enough.

Now think about what that says about your god.

He's more concerned with you being a fanboi than with how you lived your life.

I started losing my faith after a classmate asked the teacher what happened to non-Catholics after they died. The answer was simple "they go to hell." The fact that they might have been good people who devoted their lives to helping others didn't score any points with bible-god. Meanwhile wretched liars, fakes, and phonies will get into heaven by virtue of worshiping him.

Think about it: At rock bottom, bible-god just wants you to worship him. He doesn't care what kind of person you were.

You know what this means don't you? It means that bible-god's heaven is the de facto hell because all the slimy bible-thumping televangelists will be there.

And most of the good people will be in hell.

If either place actually existed, I'd take hell.

If it turned out that Christianity was true, I would totally chose hell over heaven. "Eternal separation from god," the selfish, tyrannical bastard? Yes, please.

yup i agree with you! =) i don't believe in a god who likes to be praised all the time =( and it think it's racist to say that only this religion go to heaven, while other people who believe in other religion go to hell, also how can you be sure which god is true if there are like so many religions here on earth? =(

It is a common trait of any religion to take turns towards making things easier. At the basic level, this can be critiqued to Hinduism (which just sounds like a good break from the Christ-focused popularity). In early Hinduism, it was incredibly hard to do good, then came concessions for caste, then came yogic methods of counteracting your bad, then came the concept of devotion ("bhakti"). There are countless spins on forms of "bhakti" but it essentially comes to the point that as long as you love your chosen Hindu god or demigod, he/she will save you.

It is an idea that I have been working on for a while, but in rough form... religion starts out hard -> followers can't keep up / methods of counteracting the bad -> followers still can't keep up / devotion that lacks action -> much of present-day religion. As a human construction and active development, religion, in general, tends to a realization. Humans sometimes do bad stuff using any scale of morality. Owning up to this is difficult, so many try to wiggle their way out or around an idea.

When I look at those who are obsessed with devotion, but not action or volition, I cringe a bit. I see in them a large piece of doubt that isn't being faced or addressed. Using prayer, meditative practices, yogic practices, or simple denial... one can convince their minds to look away.

I'm sorry that this turned into a bit of a rant. Don't mean to steal your thunder! But you've identified a point that really strikes me and got my wheels turning. That's certainly a good thing, thankya.
