Our Heavenly…Monster?

Is the Christian god “good” because his behavior adheres to objective moral principles at all times, or is he “good” simply because he says he is good? If the later is true, then good is only a matter of what the biggest, most powerful, bully says it is.

How is it that Christians can condemn the barbaric, genocidal acts of Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot, but call the same barbaric, genocidal acts of their god “good”? There is no rational explanation for this inconsistency. The morality of Christianity is subjective, not objective. The morality of Christianity is subject to the whims of a tempermental, vindictive, vengeful, blood-thirsty big bully—Yahweh/Jesus.

You can point out all the errors and discrepancies in the Bible to Christians until you are blue in the face and it won’t change their minds. But, how do they counter the charge that their god is a murdering son-of-a-bitch? Answer: “He’s good because he says he is.”

If the Christian god exists, dear Christian, please at least be honest and stop calling him “our loving Heavenly Father”. No loving father murders babies. Tremble in terror and call him what he is: “our Heavenly Monster”.
