We always hear about the many amazing things that Jesus of Nazareth apparently did, but nobody ever asks about the things that Jesus supposedly COULD have done, being omnipotent, but either didn’t bother to do or didn’t think were all that important. You know, things like… reducing human misery and suffering… that kind of thing.
It occurs to me that if indeed the miracles recorded in the bible were in fact true, and really did happen, then that only shows Yahweh/Jesus to be an even MORE malevolent and cruel being than we see in the old testament, and that’s saying something. If the miracles somehow prove that Jesus WAS in fact a god in human form, but all he could be bothered to do was turn water into wine and heal only a few hundred, or even a few thousand people with his magic saliva, then really – what is the use or good of such a god? Think of what a visiting, omnipotent deity COULD have done – but in this case, apparently, chose not to!!!!!
And this is meant to be that god’s main advertisement of its existence! Walking on water in front of a few of his mates, for the benefit of billions and billions of people who, if they don’t believe in his divinity and surrender control of their souls to him, will be sent to burn in agony for eternity.
People – DOES THIS RELIGION MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL???
