Christians do not believe in the God of the Bible
I’ve read the recent comments from Christians on this blog and realized that the reality is Christians do not believe in the God of the Bible. I know I did not. The God I served was a loving, compassionate, kind, caring Father in heaven who loved and valued us above us else. He had a plan for my life. As he said in Jeremiah 29:11:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
“Jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
In spite of this, Christians believe that God is a good God. They somehow mask over the many samples of genocides and killings to believe that God is compassionate towards us (Previous link contains only a sample but contains the actual verses for your reading pleasure. Here is a more comprehensive list).
In the comments I referred to earlier, Christians (primarily women) are saying that the Bible is not sexist. I’m not sure how they really interpret the scriptures on wives submitting to their husbands or that man is the head of woman, however, they have devised a way to say that the Bible declares that men and women are equal.
Christians need to come to terms with this dilemma they face. In my opinion, they should solidify their version of Christianity by not accepting the passages in the Bible which contradict their definition of God.
