God. Profit from Murder and Genocide? Get serious.
When reading the Bible, the facts show God as setting a ransom for forgiving man. That ransom was Jesus. God then sets the conditions to have Jesus murdered. Thus is how all sins, for all of eternal time, are forgiven. God does not do anything half way. After all, He would not want to break his own word and sin again.
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him.
Father God screwed up and he is having his son Jesus bear the iniquity that he himself created. An insane act.
No sane God would waste a son so needlessly. This is obvious I think to most.
This is the conclusion that one must come to, if we make Jesus part of the Trinity. This is unacceptable, as God would not murder his son.
This kills the Trinity notion.
Otherwise, God Goes straight to hell for murder.
As above, so below. The believers duty is to follow God’s example. The first commandment.
If you would NOT do such, ( murder your own son ), and you are of the Abraham religions, then you are not a true follower. You have placed yourself above God.
Rather a catch 22.
The genocide of Noah’s day would also be an example of God profiting from murder. At a wholesale price. It boils down to God having a reality that he did not like, to a position of God having a reality that he liked better. Strangely, some even say that God does not change.
The God that I know does not work that way.
If your God does, and you follow this God, you should question why you do.
To follow your God, you would have to be willing to kill your own children, as well as use genocide on the rest of mankind, as you follow an unfathomable, impossible to understand, alien God.
How does that make you feel?
Poorly I hope. Does it make you want to trade in your God for a new and improved model?
One who will not ask you to go insane with him. All that just because he found something that he did not create. Iniquity. This, God had to learn as he had not known it was in him.
