The book granted humans more compassion than the cosmic forces acting upon them, and even if all the character work and plot development went toward the angels and demons, that service never came at human expense. The divine exploitation of humanity was cruel in Good Omens , never fun.
The focus here is the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley trying to coast their way through the end times, and while Michael Sheen and David Tennant seem to enjoy bantering away in their respective roles, Good Omens never seems to find any urgency itself. There were rich comedy veins to tap here, even ones that picked at deep-rooted spiritual issues. Good Omens passed on them all. This lack of ambition becomes most clear, and most frustrating, during a mid-season montage that places Aziraphale and Crowley at pivotal points in human history, tracking their apathy through the likes of the French Revolution, the bombing of London and the death of Christ.
About This Item
In the final scene, they observe Jesus on the Cross as rubberneckers would observe a car accident. Yeah, in Gnosticism.
But tell me more about this enormous gap in my knowledge of ancient literature. Yeah, I know. Unimportant—it still sucks. If your god thingy is perfectly good and love is one of his attributes, then love must be good. If the god thingy fails at loving, then it is not perfectly good. There is nothing more evil than torturing someone for long periods of time, except for doing it to billions of people.
Therefore, your concept of God is evil which cannot be described as perfectly good. I am trying to think of a scenario where I would condone creating a place where my spaniel would yelp, catch fire, and tremble forever the next time he jumps into the front seat of my car. We have violated his very character and nature.
And that is a very serious act.
A potter can do what he wants with a pot but it is irrational for the potter to blame the pot and to punish it for how it is made. Your rhetorical question does not address the question I asked.
This is one of the things that makes absolutely no sense. None of us asked to be created. God supposedly is omniscient, which means that he created us knowing that he was creating the vast majority of mankind for eternal torment. He dragged people into eternal existence, judges them for a blink of an eye moment in time only to condemn them to eternal torment. Markus throws around attributes of God like love, justice, perfectly good and yet these things are the exact opposite.
The story simply makes no sense. The emperor has no clothes.
10 Most Anti-Christian Movies of All Time
I mean, at least come up with something believable, right? Your god is a sadistic, vindictive asshole if he even thinks about punishing us for eternity.
It only matters that the judge is real and has absolute authority. God is real and he has spoken. It is all about how gullible the defendant is about the judge. My hope is that I might cause one reader to see the light. Hell is hot and eternity is long. I have no desire for you to spend eternity there, Greg. The why is their punishments for blasphemy? Kind of thin skinned.
A Response To Christians Who Are Done With Church - madnessselra.tk
We all realised that the light you preach was very dim indeed, in comparison. Ignorant, could you be wrong about that? What is your source of absolute truth? Of course. Could you be wrong? Do you still believe in the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus? If not, why not? How do you know you are not wrong? What method do you use to verify yuou are not wrong? By the same token El, Asherah, Baal, and other deities of the Semitic pantheon, who can be recognized in the Bible, are real too.
How does an imaginary, fictitious, non-existent critter have anything to do with reality? You have to show your mythical, make-believe, hypothetical god exists before you can claim any attributes for it. Show me that your god exists. They are expected to rule justly, fairly, equitably. Condemning someone who punches the president in the nose to torture for the rest of their life would not be considered just, fair or equitable.
A ruler might have absolute authority, but one who would do such things is not considered good, loving or just. They are considered a tyrant. Infinite punishment for finite sins is not the action of a good, loving and just God; it is the action of a tyrant. The story makes no sense. The pieces of the story have to make sense if you want people to believe it. Your god is absolutely powerless outside your own imagination. Is God so sensitive? So petty? The Christian god is an insecure narcissist. According to the propaganda he needs to be continually told how great he is and otherwise have his ego stroked or else he pouts and goes into smiting mode.
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. The sarcasm must not have been evident. Am I supposed to be impressed with accusations of thought crimes? Try again, this time using logic and evidence instead of anti-humanist propaganda.
No, the sarcasm was not evident. Just a plain Biblical quote without other commentary is a common response Christians use when faced with evidence that their god is an asshole. Blood sacrifice is an obsolete technology. Remember phone books and VCRs? Obsolete too! You make a distinction between punishing and harming.
I know this because natural catastrophes the ones that insurance policies call acts of god harm countless creatures. Like us humans do all the time. Why the sacrifice needed? Why the blood shed?
And oh what a sacrifice if you get to come back to life in less than 48 hours. Just forgive them all?
