Exodus (Controversial) Topics:
God's Premeditated Plan
God's Motive for His 10 Plague Destruction
God's 10 Plagues
Scenario / Parable - Little Pharaoh
To the honest and realistic Human Being: If you are going to promote, support and finance the Biblical God, at least know what the Biblical God is documented, by Bible C&V, to have done.
To best depict the character of the Biblical God, fictional or not, Exodus is my favorite Book in the Bible. Regards, Gary DeVaney
Exodus 2:12 When Moses saw no one was watching, he killed an Egyptian and hid his body.
Ah, a candidate suitable for the murderous work of the Biblical God.
Azizah Y. Al-Hibri: MOSES KILLED SOMEBODY. And, if God could choose such people as prophets, we have a chance of being saved, of God blessing us despite our mistakes.
Exodus 2:15-21 Pharaoh heard what Moses did and sought to kill him. Moses fled, met some women at a well and he married Zipporah.
Moses & Zipporah Meeting At A Well
Isn't Moses and Zipporah meeting at a well parallel to, or a re-cycle of, the Jacob and Rachel meeting at a well story in Genesis 29:10-11?
Exodus 3:2 God's Angel appeared to Moses in the heart of a fire in the middle of a (miracle) bush that burned but was not consumed.
God Spoke To Moses As A Burning Bush
What? God's Angel appeared to Moses in the heart of the fire? All this time, I thought that God was the "fire" in the "burning bush"! Didn't you?
Is God "fire"? Is "fire" associated with Hell? Is Satan associated with Hell? If God is in the "Burning Bush" - is God also Satan?
Exodus 3:14-15 God replied to Moses: I Will Be Who I Will Be. This is how I am to be recalled for all generations. Torah
Who, in conversation today, calls God: "I Will Be Who I Will Be"? Aren't we one of the "all generations" God referred to?
Exodus 3:17 God promised to take Moses' people out of Egypt into a "Land of Milk & Honey".
My Torah notes claim that about three million (3,000,000) people came out of Egypt and about 2/3rds of them were Israelites.
Out of the 3,000,000 people that God led out of Egypt, only 2 leaders, Joshua and Caleb, actually got to possess "The Promised Land".
That means except for Joshua and Caleb, God murdered all 3 million of them. Why? God murdered them due to God's disappointment with them. They did not wholy obey God. God's "chosen" did not murder all the land-owners who God wanted murdered. So, God murdered them. Do you realize that God broke His "sacred" promise to each of the 3,000,000 individuals, over 20-years-old, who God led out of Egypt - including Moses, Aaron and Miriam? Knowing this, do you still insist that God did keep His "sacred" promise to all of the individuals who did not make it into "The Promised Land"?
"The Promised Land" was "The Land of Canaan". Didn’t Noah curse the land named after Canaan, Ham’s son, in Genesis 9:24-28?
Would God or would Satan take His "chosen people" into a "cursed land"? Wouldn't one think that only Satan would do something like that?
Recorded history has documented that God's "Promised Land" has experienced murder, theft, and destruction ever since Biblical times. What do you think the never-changing Biblical God's "Heaven" will amount to? If God is "fire" - as Pastor Arnold Murray preaches - could it be Heaven that is HOT?
Is this God also Satan? Does this God do the murderous deeds that Satan is typically accused of and credited for? Have you noticed that no "Satan" or "Devil" has not been mentioned so far on any page of the Bible? Why?
II Samuel 24: The anger of The Lord was kindled against Israel and God moved David against them to say go number Israel and Judah.
"Satan" is not introduced until the 13th book of the Bible.
1 Chronicles 21:1 A SATAN rose up against Israel and incited David to take a census of Israel.
Satan was accused of ordering the census in 1 Chronicles 21:1 that God ordered in II Samuel 24. Due to King David's obeying and taking the census, God punished David by murdering 70,000 of God's own "chosen" people.
The Old Testament is written testimony which documents that a self-confessed angry, jealous and murderous God destroyed 3,000,000 of those whom He chose to bring out of Egypt.
God murdered His 3,000,000 "chosen people". God murdered them because they did not eagerly kill all of "The Land of Canaan" / "The Promised Land" inhabitants in order to steal their land. Could a "good" God ever do anything like that?
Battered Woman Syndrome: A battered-woman is dominated and controlled by physical, mental and emotional abuse. She must account for her time and all decisions are made for her. Her god makes himself more important by shifting the blame and responsibility for his violent and abusive action on her while he righteously uses abusive means to control her. The battered victim seldom complains or reports the batterer due to fear.
God's "Chosen" were victims of a Battered People Syndrome. The Biblical "Exodus" proves to be a "Battered People" story.
Exodus 3:19-22 God said: I know the Egyptian King will not allow you to leave unless he is forced. I will demolish Egypt; then, the Pharaoh will let you go. You will not go empty handed of silver and gold. You will drain Egypt of its wealth and give it to yourself and your children. Torah
Ecclesiastes 10:19 Money Answers All Things
The Holman Bible Dictionary: The Jews robbed Egypt of its wealth and of its first-born.
What? God ordered theft? Does the Biblical God say here: Thou shalt steal - on My terms? Is this what you consider to be moral or legal? If you were an Egyptian, how would you feel about this new God's morality and It's sense of law?
The ultimate Confucius moral: "Do not do unto others what you would not want others to do unto you."
Can you think of a better moral? If so, please submit it to - firstname.lastname@example.org - along with any corrections you may have.
Exodus 4:10 Moses tells God he can't represent Him to Pharaoh because he is slow of speech, slow of tongue.
What? Moses, God's chosen spokesman, has a speech impediment?
Exodus 4:11 God said to Moses: Who gives one man speech and makes another deaf and dumb? Who gives sight to one and makes another blind? Is it not I, the Lord?
Is God boasting to Moses that He / God (no Satan or Devil) causes mankind's saddest afflictions? Is this really a "loving God" that Christians pray to? Who admits, right here, that God Himself, is mankind’s greatest adversary (Satan)?
Adapted from: Paul Winchell's book: "God 2000, Religion Without The Bible", 1982.
(This book, by Paul Winchell, started me on my study and investigation of the Holy Bible in 1982. Gary DeVaney)
Exodus 4:21-23 God said to Moses: "Then, I will make Pharaoh obstinate so that he won't let My people go. Moses, go tell Pharaoh, that by refusing, I will ultimately murder his first-born son."
This was God's specific confession: Exodus 4:21 proves that all the future murdering, pain and anguish is but the agenda of this wicked, evil God. Do you know anyone who worships, promotes and supports this God?
Exodus 4:23-24 God tries to murder Moses, but, his wife, Zipporah, saves him by cutting off a piece of their son's (Gershom) foreskin. (Circumcision.)
Why did the Biblical God want to kill Moses? Can anyone trust a "supreme leader" / God of such inconsistency? And, if God really tried and failed to kill Moses, what does that say about this unchanging God? What does this say about what God really thought of Moses?
Azizah Y. Al-Hibri: Muslims circumcise too. Islam has the Qur’an, which one interprets for oneself as Islam does not have “clergy”.
It is interesting that Islam has no clergy. Each Muslim has the responsibility to learn the Koran for himself.
Exodus 4:27 God spoke to Aaron in a straight-forward manner.
Why? How come no magic?
Exodus 5:1-22 Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and stated that their God demanded he let their people go. When God schemed and made the Pharaoh obstinate, God caused the Hebrews a heavier workload which made them suffer and complain.
Exodus 5:22 Moses asked God: Why do You mistreat Your people? You have done nothing to help Your people.
Is Moses admonishing, questioning and teaching God morality? Careful Moses! You’re petting a deadly Cobra.
Exodus 6:2 God told Moses His name was Jehovah (KJV) which Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob did not know him by.
Why did God use "I Am" (KJV) earlier stating that would be His name, forever His title for all generations?
G: Could this "I Am" be the definition of "Ego" / "God"? Is "Ego" and "God" the same? Is it Ego that seeks authority when promoting God?
EGO / GOD
1. I am the value
2. I am the authority
3. I am entitled
Personal perspective: Bart Floyd called me once a while back and asked: "Gary, you've studied most of the religions of the World, how many Gods do you think there have been throughout history?"
My answer was instinctive: "Almost one GOD for each EGO."
I'm betting that the human concept of Ego and God is synonymous. I view that although an Atheist has an ego, Atheists don't promote their authoritative ego through the claim of any authoritative god.
God's Premeditated Plan
Exodus 6:1 God said: Moses, now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh. He will be forced to let them go. He will be forced to drive them out of his land.
Doesn’t God admit, right here, that it is Pharaoh’s land?
Exodus 6:7-8 God said: I will take you as My Own people and you shall have Me as your God. I will give you the land I swore to give Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I Am God.
Some feel all warm and fuzzy about this passage. Why? Isn’t this God guilty of bias discrimination? What about the Egyptians and other people? Later, this Biblical God claims to play no favorites. One sorry thing is, some religious people want God to be discriminatory towards them and adversarial towards others. Is religion just the authoritative voodoo of egocentric monkey-minds?
Moses Is A Product Of Incest?
Exodus 6:20 Amram took Jochebed his father’s sister for his wife. She bore him Aaron and Moses (and Miriam). KJV
Now, this is shocking! Moses is credited to have written the Torah / Pentatauch (the first 5 books of the Bible).
Leviticus 18:12 God commanded: You shall not have sex with your father's sister. Torah & Catholic & KJV
Amram & His Father's Sister Jochebed?
If Moses wrote Leviticus - then Moses did not "honor his father and mother". Moses exposed their sin of incest. The Biblical God commanded against and forbid this specific sexual union in Leviticus 18:12.
If God does NOT change and God condemned Moses' father - aunt incest, why was Moses selected as God's favored hero? Doesn't that prove that the Biblical God is a hypocrite?
Were you ever taught in Sunday School or during a church service that Moses, another of God's chosen leaders and models, was also a product of incest? Who would have “thunk” it?
Actually, Miriam, Moses' and Aaron's sister is not listed as being born in Exodus 6:20 in either the Torah and KJV. Rabbis claim that women were considered irrelevant and equivalent to chattel. The Catholic version did include Miriam's birth along with Aaron's and Moses'.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton: "The Bible and the Church have been the greatest stumbling blocks in the way of women's emancipation."
At this time, I would request that each and every Christian stop for a moment and personally define the word EVIL for himself and for herself. Try to get totally passionate concerning your personal definitions of EVIL!
Exodus 7:1 God tells Moses: I will be making you as a god to Pharaoh. Aaron, your brother, will be your prophet.
Do you think maybe Moses invented his God to get the superstitious to follow him?
What one word defines "god" in every context? How about the word "authority"? Test it.
Exodus 7:3-5 God said: I will make Pharaoh obstinate. He will show his powers; I will show Mine…
God Hardened Pharaoh's Heart
Could God's motive be: "And Egypt will learn Who is God around here?"
Exodus 7:5 The Egyptians will know that I am God.
Yep! Looks like it.
Exodus 7:7-12 At this time, Moses was 80-years-old. Aaron was 83. God told Moses - and Moses directed Aaron to throw down his rod. Aaron's rod become a serpent. Then, Pharaoh's priest's rods became serpents. Moses' and Aaron's snake ate all the Pharaoh's priest's snakes.
7:13 God, then, hardened the Pharaoh's heart.
What? The Biblical God made Pharaoh into a puppet by changing his feelings and mind so that Pharaoh could not obey Moses?
God documented his evil, murderous agenda: I will make Pharaoh refuse to release My people; then, I will murder, torture, inflict plagues and diseases on all the Egyptian people, which will include the "innocent", their children and their animals.
Stop! Please! Think about THIS for as long as it takes.
What? The Biblical God would do all of this murderous, heinous cruelty - just to let them (or us - thousands of years later) know Who is God?
What kind of "good", "loving" and "just" God would do that?
What kind of "good, loving and just" people could or would worship, support, promote and finance such a God - fictional or not?
Are Christians truly "good, loving and just" people?
Do Christians truly know what "EVIL" is?
Is the Biblical God EVIL?
How does this Biblical God and His deeds measure up to your personal definition of EVIL?
God will make Pharaoh do what?
God will make Pharaoh refuse God and disobey Him?
What does that mean? Why would God do that? Then, isn’t the Biblical God saying that this is all premeditated on His part?
If someone were to announce that he planned these things against the United States of America today, wouldn't most Christian Americans accuse him as being evil and possessed by Satan? Is this Biblical God also Satan?
God's 10 Plagues
God Also Killed Pharaoh's First-Born Son
After each plague, Pharaoh would have let the Israelites go. But, after each plague, God forced Pharaoh to change his mind. Then, God punished all the Egyptians, including the innocent children, and their animals.
Is the Biblical God insane? Absurd? Diabolical? Psychotic? If you are "God-fearing", haven't you shown courage to have read this far? Are you still afraid to judge this insane Biblical God?
Exodus 7:17 God predicted: In this you shall know how I am God.
Once you know the insane, evil behavior of this God, what are your views concerning this God? If you condone this God's behavior, what does that say about you, the believer?
1. Exodus 7:20-21 The river changed into blood. The fish died.
Exodus 7:22 God made Pharaoh remain obstinate.
Clue: Don’t miss these (God's C&V) "hardening the heart" motives many times over.
2. Exodus 8:1-10 Aaron / God brought frogs upon the Egyptian people and their land and the (guilty) frogs died and stank.
This is taken from the Catholic version. Sometimes the KJV, Torah and the Catholic version is off a verse or two - but they basically all say the same things.
Exodus 8:11 Pharaoh was still stubborn as God had scripted.
Did you see this one?
3. Exodus 8:12 God brought lice upon the Egyptian people and their animals. Torah (8:16 KJV)
Exodus 8:15 God still forced Pharaoh to remain stubborn.
How about this one?
Can you imagine for a moment that you are an Egyptian or do you insist that you are a Lieutenant on God's side - right or wrong?
4. Exodus 8:17 God infested swarms of flies upon the people of Egypt.
Exodus 8:28 Pharaoh became obdurate, would not let the people go.
Again, God's doing? God made Pharaoh disobedient and then God punished all the Egyptians for it.
God's Motive for His 10 Plague Destruction
Exodus 8:18-19 So that you may know that I am God right here on Earth I will make this distinction between My people and your people. Catholic. KJV = Exodus 8:22-23
God proves to prefer, pick and choose and to discriminate concerning Human Beings.
Romans 9:17 God said to Pharaoh: The purpose I raised you up was to show My power so My name might be declared throughout all the Earth.
Note: Romans 9:17 documents that God is inflicting all these plagues and doing all this murdering just to let everybody know who is God around here. Who and where is "evil" Satan, so far, according to these (selected and controversial) Bible scriptures?
5. Exodus 9:6 God killed all the livestock of Egypt; none of Israel.
God Killed All The Livestock Of Egypt
Exodus 9:7 Pharaoh was still obstinate under God's spell.
What? Whose spell? God casts spells? Aren't "spells" cast by evil entities? Are "The Gospels", God's-spells?
6. Exodus 9:10 God caused festering boils on man and beast.
God Caused Boils On Man & Beast
Exodus 9:12 But, God made Pharaoh obstinate and he would not listen to Moses just as God had foretold to Moses.
Exodus 9:14-16 God will send torture and murder on the Egyptians - so that they will know that there is none like God on Earth - and that God's name be declared throughout all the Earth.
No! Not our loving, perfect Christian-worshipped God! Tell me it’s not true!
7. Exodus 9:23-25 God murdered, by hail, every man and animal that was outdoors.
God Murdered By Hail
Why? What did those men do?
Why all those innocent animals?
God's Christian believer's defense: Those animals were sinful, damn-it!
Exodus 9:27-28 Pharaoh cried: I'm guilty, God is just. We have had enough. I and my subjects have been wrong, we have sinned. I will let you go!
Exodus 9:29 Now, you may know how the Earth is God's.
Exodus 9:34-35 Pharaoh became stubborn, yet again, as God had foretold.
Exodus 10:1 God said to Moses: I have made Pharaoh and his advisors stubborn so I may do what I have done. Torah
God, again, told Moses that He made Pharaoh stubborn so that God can torture and kill Egyptians.
Exodus 10:2 God said: You will be able to tell your children how I made fools out of the Egyptians. You will then fully realize how I am God. Torah
What? The Biblical God wants you to tell your children about the torture and mass-murder God committed on the Egyptians?
Sorry believers and defenders, but the Torah, Catholic and King James versions all show this Biblical God to be one sick, sick puppy.
Believer: Never! God is great! God is good! Praise God! You can be saved in the blood of Jesus Christ!
Can't a believer stick to the topic? If you condone all this murder, pain and torture, what does that say about you?
8. Exodus 10:12-19 God covered the land of Egypt with locust. God drowned all the locust.
God Covered Egypt With Locust
Exodus 10:20 God again, made Pharaoh obstinate, so he would not let the Israelites go.
9. Exodus 10:21-22 Magic: Three days of thick darkness.
God Caused 3 Days Of Darkness
Exodus 10:27 God made Pharaoh obstinate so that he would not let them go.
Exodus 11:1-2 God ordered Moses: To ask of the Egyptians for their gold, silver, jewels, and clothes (before God lays "the big, murderous one" on them).
The Holman Bible Dictionary: In leaving Egypt, Israel ROBBED the most powerful nation of their time of its first-born sons and of its wealth.
This is a redundant, and an official, reminder that the Israelites robbed Egypt of its wealth.
Exodus 11:4-5 Moses said: Every first-born of this land shall die from the first-born of Pharaoh to the first-born of the slave-girl in the hand-mill.
What? Would the Biblical God target and murder children to fulfill His agenda?
What responsibility does an innocent first-born baby and his mother have concerning God's documented insane and murderous intent?
What did that baby or his mother do to the Biblical God to make Him so heinous, evil, insane and murderous?
By designing this cruel, sadistic, murderous agenda, how does the Biblical God prove to be a God of love, fairness and justice?
What kind of evil agenda or model is God trying to teach Humanity? What is God's "moral" in this case? Would God ever personally confess to do such an insane thing?
Exodus 11:9 God told Moses that Pharaoh would not listen to Moses so that God could torture and murder Egyptians.
What? So, if Pharaoh gets stubborn - it is not Pharaoh's fault? It is God who makes Pharaoh stubborn.
Exodus 11:10 God hardened Pharaoh's heart so that Pharaoh was stubborn, obstinate and would not let the Israelites go.
Exodus 12:12 God said: I will murder every first-born in Egypt, man and beast. I will judge against all gods of Egypt. I alone am God.
God showed intent to murder every firstborn in Egypt. God's intent qualifies for the definition of murder. God intends a mass-murder and when God succeeds at doing the mass-murder - God proves to be a mass-murderer.
God said that He will judge against all gods of Egypt - but - He alone is God? Does God's statement qualify to be somewhat contradictory?
Are you conscious and sensitive as to what is going on here? Are you on God's side? Can you explain your attitude concerning God's agenda?
What do your feelings tell you? Do you approve of God torturing and mass-murdering Egyptians - just to let everybody know who is God?
An Egyptian First-Born Son
By Gary DeVaney
Imagine, in a hand-mill, an Egyptian slave-girl's first-born son looks adoringly into his mother's proud eyes and he says to her, "Mother, thank you for loving me. Thank you for giving me my share of nurturing and gentle words. Mother, should I have to leave you, do not grieve for me; for, my happiness has been the greatest gift you have given me. And hopefully, in the time we had, I have returned happiness to you. Remember, I love you, mother."
10. Exodus 12:29 God murdered all the first-born of Egypt.
God Murdered One Human Being In Every Egyptian House
Exodus 12:30 God murdered one Human Being in every Egyptian house.
Today, many religions celebrate "The Passover", the night that God murdered all first-born Egyptians. The Israelites were directed to slaughter young lambs, without blemish, and spread their blood on their door-posts so God could determine who to murder - and who not to.
"The Passover" was what Jesus Christ was celebrating when Pilate took Him away to be crucified. How can anyone "sane" today celebrate this insane absurdity called "The Passover"?
Jesus Celebrated "The Passover" - God's Mass-Murder Of Egypt's Firstborn
Wouldn’t only a racist celebrate "The Passover"? Who was documented to be the Egyptian's adversary? The Biblical God was.
Albert Einstein: "The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it."
Isn't it immoral to inflict pain on helpless creatures? If so, the Biblical God proved to be immoral - illegal - and insane. What kind of Human Being would worship, support, praise and finance such a murderous model?
This God has Moses make a request for His people to leave Egypt. Pharaoh agrees, then God forces Pharaoh to disagree. Then God punishes and tortures all Egyptians, murders all their first-born and destroys their livestock; all, just to let everybody know who is boss (God) around here.
Are you promoting this heinous God to be your child's model of morality?
The Age Of Enlightenment became established in the 1700s. Biblical consciousness and sensitivity for the herd-mentality has not yet become a reality. Believers still stupidly and stubbornly worship, support, praise and finance this - documented to be insane Biblical God.
Check out, Bible C&V, the heinous cruelty the Bible and its God spews out. Somehow, the believer’s herd-mentality re-cycles this cruel legacy as virtue throughout generations. Can believers wake up and get a conscience?
The Biblical God is not a good God and the Bible is not a good model for humanity. GWD
I can not accuse the Biblical God to be any more insane than the Bible proves its God to be insane, chapter and verse. Gary DeVaney
Exodus 13:17 Pharaoh releases the Israelites.
Pharaoh Releases The Israelites
Exodus 14:4 God said: I will harden Pharaoh's heart so that he will follow the Israelites.
Exodus 14:8 God hardened Pharaoh's heart and then forced Pharaoh and his army to chase them.
Exodus 14:17-18 God said: I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians and I will get Me honor over Pharaoh and his army. And, the Egyptians will know that I am God.
Exodus 14:21-28 God parted "The Red Sea" for Moses and His people, then God collapsed it over the Pharaoh's Army who had followed the Hebrews into the sea.
So God had made Pharaoh stubborn again so he would chase the Israelites. Then, God used supernatural power to crash the parted Red Sea over the Egyptian army - drowning them all.
Exodus 20:5-6 God said: You shall not bow down to them, nor serve them. For I am a jealous God; I visit the iniquity of the fathers upon their children unto the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me / God.
Can you explain why Judeo-Christian-Islamic believers support this God?
Psalm 136:15 But swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea. Catholic
God Murdered Pharaoh's Army
Psalm 136:15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host into the Red Sea. KJV
So, did Pharaoh die with his army?
Most believers presume Ramses II to be the Pharaoh of this story - but, history does not have any of the Ramses / Pharaohs dying with his army in the Red Sea.
Can anyone verify if history claims there was a Moses or an Exodus - as the Holy Bible defines.
Do you tend to believe history or the "infallible" Bible?
C. Dennis McKinsey: The Bible contains more errors than holes in a screen door. "The Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy"
Again, God's only motive to inflict all the plagues and murdering was just to let them all know "who is God around here"?
Does anyone sense an ego here?
Fictional or not, was this God: Loving? Moral? Fair? Or: Insane? Obsessed? Psychotic? Evil?
Any mention yet of any Satan or Devil?
Does this God deserve worship? Why?
What kind of sentences would "World Courts" give this God / Character?
Were the Marquis de Sade, Hitler, Lenin, Stalin and Cambodia’s Pol Pot "The Biblical God" incarnate?
What is the lesson God gave everyone here?
Do the people, who do Passover and still support this God, know what He did?
If the Biblical God is perfect and this is His track record, what kind of perfection lies in store for those who are chosen to serve God for eternity?
Any debate won’t change the Chapters & Verses and the words of the Bible. Those words just won’t go away. Check yourself to see if your argument will attempt to discipline or control opposing debaters, to demand that they conform to your values - even by threat of consequence.
Attitude check: Are you defending this Father / God or just defending your feelings?
Has your EGO taken the place of your GOD? Is it really your ego you are defending?
By Gary DeVaney
Authority: Me Boss - You Punk!
A huge tyrannical father came home one day and grabbed his small son - whose name was Little Pharaoh. He ordered: Do not move from here to there! If you do, I will severely punish you. Then, the insane father grasped the back of the child’s neck and pushed him from here to there. He, then condemned the child for disobedience and angrily cut off one of the child’s toes. The small, helpless child cried. He did this to his son 10 times until all of the child’s toes were gone. Then, the child continued crying because his father forced him to limp painfully after him. Then, the angry father put his child’s head in a ditch and drowned him.
Some have called me an angry writer.
Concerning the Bible and Its murderous God, what possibly could I get angry about?
Ok - I do have my moments. GWD
Romans 9:17-18 (Paul wrote): Pharaoh, this is why I (God) raised you up, to show My power through you that My name may be proclaimed throughout the Earth. God has mercy on whom He wills and God hardens whom He wills. Catholic
So, Paul confirmed that the Biblical God murdered all of Egypt's firstborn and Pharaoh's army just to let everybody know who is God.
What an ugly, evil, murderous God! Who me - an angry writer?
By Gary DeVaney
Imagine you have no home of your own. A "STRANGER" authoritatively tells you that he has chosen you and that he will give you a home of your own. You want to believe him. He takes you to a distant land and points out a house to you. He now says, "There is the home I give you." You look and you see people in the house. He says, "Now, you go into that house and kill every man, woman and child in that house or I will do to you what I thought to do to them."
Might Makes Right / Just & Fair?
This is the Exodus story. How do you like the Biblical God now?
A Just & Fair God?
What if the Biblical God gave your, your wife's and your children's house to His new chosen?
Is your concept of God based on the facts about God as written in the Bible or have you created a God in your own mind based mostly on selective hearsay? Do you remember God as depicted in the words of the Bible or have you made up your own God to suit yourself? Is idealistic feel-good a large part of your meaningful or sacred formula?
A mind-set believer would not seek out the truth (facts) when the credibility of their God, Jesus and the Bible is at stake. Some believers tend to demonize and distort what doesn’t serve them? Is your being loyal to a belief more important than your being correct and honest? During slavery and exploitation, potential victims formulate a master / slave relationship without questioning whether their masters are worthy of obedience, worship and /or kiss-butt. Parents, bosses, business-owners, Generals, Captains and Sergeants love it.
You show me a good religious believer, and I will show you a good human-sacrifice.
There is one word anyone can put in the place of God and it will fit perfectly 100% of the time. That word is authority. Why not get out a Bible and prove this to yourself? Find the word God, and put authority in its place. Does it fit?
The genetic Ego (I am the authority) is built to worship itself and to obey it’s own genes while masquerading as a God.
You are created by your genes. You genes (46 chromosomes = 23 from mom + 23 from dad) are your real and only creator.
Human Beings Have 46 Chromosomes
Other than nature and the laws of physics, all authority is assumed. Don’t parents, wives, husbands, educators, employers, supervisors, Gods and all other “assumed authorities” assume that you are to account for your time; that your behavior requires their approval?
The ultimate meaning of freedom is unaccountable time.
Test it. No authority: Boss, parent, General, Captain, Sergeant, husband, wife, clergy nor God wants you to have freedom (unaccountable time). They all want you to account for your time to them, obey them and serve them on their terms.
Slavery may consist of many distasteful elements, but one thing must be present for it to qualify, accountable time. Our genes are so conditioned to slavery that we become addicted to substances like alcohol, drugs, and other sensory and time consuming addictions.
Buzz’s, a prison warden’s criticism: Try to stop making the Bible say what you want it to say. It’s always been and always will be a question of faith. You will see after you believe; not before.
"I Believe" means: I don't know; I gamble, I pretend, I have no hard evidence, I'm mind-set / closed-minded, I project, I impose my will on reality...
As long as I'm committed to my belief, I am not capable of learning. As a believer, I assume to be the authority over an agenda I'd like you to follow and obey. Commit to follow me, serve what I serve, show respect and obedience and serve my authority on my terms. Subordinate your feelings to mine, trust me, shut up and do as I expect. Be a sheep and allow me to satisfy your quest to follow.
"I believe" is the vocabulary of manipulative con men. Faith, hope and belief are the tools for commitments, conscription oaths, employment agreements and wedding vows.
Be-lie-ve. Lie is in the middle of believe.
Fact / reality: A fact is something impartial, not political, has no consideration for any agenda. Facts are the tools to best understand reality - for those who prefer to understand and deal with reality. Facts are the essentials tools in determining illegal deeds upon which judgments are based concerning the fate of criminals.
Truth: Something expressed that generally has a more personal agenda. When a truth is expressed by someone concerning a topic or event, in time, usually it is their feelings being explained, not the facts nor the topic. Their committed feelings amount to their truth.
Faith: When others insist you have faith, they insist you commit to terms not your own. They expect you to prefer their committed feelings and agendas over fact. People wishing for you to have faith are those wishing for you to shut up, to do what you are told and do what’s expected. You are expected to accept and obey what the assumed authority desires without disturbing his agendas and goals.
People, who go comatose with faith, are either afraid to rock the boat or are just looking for a free ride. Salvation, maybe?
Do You Really Believe In Eternal Life?
Exodus 20:17 You shall not covet your neighbor’s house or wife.
Under Biblical law, men have legal rights that guard against theft and property damage. This includes damage to their women. Coerced sex (rape) is considered wrong only when it occurs outside of the contractual agreements / rules men have with other men.
The punishment for rape has no compassion for the woman. Rape punishment is caused by honor, tribal purity, and a sense that a “used woman” is damaged goods. A rapist can be forced to buy his victim.
A woman who willingly gives up her virginity may be killed (honor-killing) because she has transformed herself from being a family asset to being a family liability.
Obviously, Islam adopted the legal rights of the Bible’s Exodus 20:17.
To believe that you are so important that Jesus had to die to save you and that you have to bathe yourself in His blood, is totally sick. Do you fantasize that anybody else should also readily die for you? Well, maybe some romantics do - who are capable of murder.
Exodus 21:1-11 God gives His rules concerning slavery.
Exodus 21:7 When a man sells his daughter as a slave . . .
Exodus 21:13 If he did not plan to kill his victim, but, God caused it to happen, then God will provide a place where the killer can find refuge.
Sadistic believers don’t care what Human Being dies as long as they believe his or her death to be “God’s Will”.
Is Death God's Will?
Isn’t this how God handled the Cain murdered Abel case?
Isn’t this also how God handled the Moses murdered an Egyptian case?
Are murderers, who plan their crimes, just puppets or victims of God and His criminal agendas? How does this perspective effect the justice system if the murderer claims or admits that his or her God made him or her do it?
Exodus 21:17 Whoever curses his father or mother shall be murdered.
Exodus 21:20-21 If a master hurts his servant or maid and they die immediately, the master will be punished. But if the slave lives a day or two, then dies, the master will not be punished because that slave is his own money. King James Version
Here is The Good Book's license to murder one's slave as long as the slave dies slowly over a day or two. Who is the slave's adversary?
Exodus 22:17 God directs to murder witches. Catholic KJV = Exodus 22:18
Millions of innocent people were hacked to pieces and burned to death during the inquisition due to this “sacred” verse.
Exodus 22:27 You shalt not curse the ruler of your people.
Exodus 22:28: God said: Give me the first-born of your sons.
Give Me The First-Born Of Your Sons
For what purpose? For sacrifice?
Exodus 22:29 A first-born animal may Me. stay with it's mother for 7 days, then you must sacrifice it to Me.
Sheep Are Fleeced Often & Are Ultimately Consumed
Do you think God figures mother and baby have emotionally bonded long enough?
Exodus 23:15 Do not appear before God empty-handed.
Could this be more clergy's idea?
Rene Descartes alluded that the proposition of belief is a matter of will.
David Hume holds that belief is an emotional condition.
If one believes, then one is unjustified in claiming to know. Are most people's beliefs just what they are programmed to want or to not want?
Are beliefs but committed feelings?
Exodus 23:22-32 If you obey Me and do what I say, I will hate your enemies and attack your foes. I will annihilate them. You will serve your God. I will banish sickness from among you. No woman will suffer miscarriage or remain childless. I will make you live out full lives. I will cause the people in your path to be terrified of Me and make your enemies run from you. I will send deadly wasps ahead of you to drive them out. I will give their land to you. You will not make a treaty with them. They shall not live in your land.
The Biblical God was a hateful thug, bully, tyrant, Who often displayed a street mentality. He was a con God Who dealt out lies and false promises.
This God's most meaningful intentions were to murder people and to take their land for a chosen group. These deeds would not be correct today; nor were they moral, legal or correct thousands of years ago
Ancient gods, or more accurately, those who pretended to serve them, competed for power and profit over the people of Earth just as most politicians and clergy do today. If, back then, your god couldn’t compete by providing promises, miracles and / or consequences, your god just wasn’t much. What’s sad is, that’s the same god many believers would require today. Why?
Test: God created a Christian, a Muslim, a Hindu, a Buddhist and a Jew. Which is going to be saved for Heaven? Your answer is _____.
Q: Then, why did God create the others?
Exodus 24:5 Moses sent men to slaughter oxen as burnt offering to God.
Exodus 24:6-8 Moses splashes blood on altars, people and everything.
Exodus 25:3 These are contributions you will accept: Gold, silver, bronze…
What would God want with gold, silver, or anything else?
Exodus 29:10-18 God directs: Bring the young bull. Have Aaron and his sons place their hands on the bull's head. Slaughter the bull before God. Take the bull's blood and place it on the altar with your finger. Spill all the remaining blood on the foundations of the altar. All the fat that covers the inner organs, the fat that's on the liver and 2 kidneys, you shall burn on the altar. Do the same to the ram. Cut the ram to pieces. Wash off its intestines. Burn the ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering; an appeasing fragrance to God.
Cooked Fat Suitable For God's Nose?
Do you think that this Biblical God would ever require or allow a father, who does His murdering for Him, to do a burnt offering procedure on his 13-year-old little girl, even if the little girl probably loved her father? If you can stomach this scenario, it comes later.
Reminder: I didn’t write the Bible. I just read it, took notes and dared to share them. GWD
Exodus 29:25 You will burn the sweet smelling oblation to the Lord. The rest will be for you.
The Biblical God loves to smell and savor the fat-smoke from the burning fat around a sacrificed animal's organs. The priests seem to get the prime cuts, so it is barbecue-time again for the Aaron Cohen family of priests. This is a disgusting bunch with a even more disgusting Boss.
Can you picture, today, yourself drawing a crowd by placing a living animal on a grate, only to take out a knife and slit it’s throat? Then, you cheer in its death struggle? Next, you slit open the belly of the quivering animal so its guts pour out on the grate ready for flames to scorch. You will do that so your Biblical God can smell the gross odor of the burning fat around the poor animals guts; that He so awesomely craves.
Are these some of the requirements of your personal God?
Exodus 31:15 Anyone who dares work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death.
Exodus 31:18 God gave Moses two tables of stone written by the finger of God.
God's Finger-Written Stones?
Exodus 32:1-5 (Meanwhile): The Israeli people asked Aaron to make a God for them. Aaron replied: Have your wives, sons and daughters take off their gold earrings and bring them to me. Aaron accepted their offerings, made them into a Golden Calf - and an altar.
Moses' Brother, Aaron, Built The Golden Calf
Exodus 32:7-14 God goes ballistic again and tells Moses not to stop Him when He unleashes His wrath to destroy them. Moses began to plead to make God stop: Egypt will say You took us out with evil intention, to kill us in the country, to wipe us off the face of the Earth. Moses begged God to withdraw His anger and refrain from doing evil to His people. God refrained from doing the evil He planned for His people.
God planned evil? Again? God changed His mind? As with Abraham, God got moral guidance, again from Moses?
Here is a God with the emotions and the temper tantrums of a spoiled, evil child. God orders Moses NOT to try to stop God which Moses disobeys. God intends to destroy His people. Moses tells God to stop being angry and to not do evil to His people. God changed His mind. Here is more evidence of the characteristics of God.
Unfortunately, for the pious believer, as long as Bibles exist, this evidence just will not conveniently go away. In all of this God’s trust there is the potential of betrayal. The mechanism of belief tends to ignore that. Believers are never prepared for betrayal. It’s not a feel-good. Irrational Denial is their automatic response.
Exodus 32:19 Moses, who just calmed down angry God, became so angry himself, he threw down and destroyed God's finger written sacred tablets and they broke into pieces.
Boy! Is Moses going to catch it for this? Actually, Abraham gave God a moral lesson too in Gen 18:25. And wow! What about that Aaron, Moses' brother, the head of the priests? Aaron made The Golden Calf. Is his fat going into the fire, or what? Nah - he’s an insider.
Exodus 32:27-28 Moses Levi ordered all the sons of Levi to slay their own family, friends and neighbors; Moses murdered about 3,000 of their own relatives, God's Own chosen.
Moses Killed 3,000 Of God's Chosen
Is this insane or what? Are you still an accomplice of this God's insanity and treachery; or, are you now going to insist that it wasn't God's but Moses' tyranny? You do recall that it was Moses' brother Aaron, who made the golden-calf from the peoples' earrings? Aaron is allowed to live! Isn't this hypocrisy multiplied by twice the speed of light?
Now that we know what this God did to all the Egyptians, is this "loyal and loving" God worthy of Egyptian worship? How about Hebrew worship? What kind of God would require your servitude and blind obedience; demanding receptiveness to its power, control and manipulation?
Don't big businesses, courts, churches, child-abusers, rapists and the egos of man find virtue in this kind of behavior? Think of all the pain, murdering, anguish, lies, torture, deception, annihilation and destruction, performed by this character we refer to as God.
Could these “Holy Books” be considered sacred by Governments, businesses, armed forces, courts, clergy, and parents, if they knew the truth about them? Yep!
When one questions this Biblical God, many believers defend Him with similar statements that Caligula and Nero shouted: I am the Emperor (God). I can do whatever I want to whomever I want to! The peasants live and die for me, for my pleasure!
Exodus 33:11 God used to speak to Moses face to face as one man speaks to another.
Exodus 33:20&23 God explained: I who show favors and I who grant mercy to whom I will. You cannot see my face and live. My face is not to be seen. (Catholic)
Two pieces of hard evidence: This God does play favorites and any character who claims he has seen the face of this God is a liar. Doesn’t Exodus 33:11 and Exodus 33:20 contradict each other? If one supports either passage, the Bible itself makes one out to be a liar to another who knows of the other passage. Jacob and the rest must be liars, too.
Exodus 34:1 Jehovah calmly volunteers to re-do the tablets.
There is no punishment for Mr. Moses Levi's crime of destroying God's “sacred” finger- written tablets nor for his killing 3,000 of his own.
Again, "thou shalt kill, on my terms"; and, that Aaron? He made The Golden Calf and got off unscathed. WHY???
Exodus 34:7 The sins of the father will be punished upon his future innocent children.
Taking On The Sins Of The Father
Somebody, please, get a net! Some Christians, today, claim religious persecution. When examining their claim, it often boils down to: We set values for you to obey. If you display any resistance to our values and disobey us, we will righteously claim that you are persecuting us.
This Bible and Its God in no way qualifies as a model for a society that wants to survive. Considering Moses and Aaron, God’s agendas are being carried out by psychotics.
Exodus 40:13-15 God said: Anoint Aaron and his sons as my priests for all future generations.
What? God gives a reward for Aaron’s screwing up? Again, what hypocrisy!
Don't people, even today, who do their best to obey God, still get driven into wars where by they destroy or are destroyed in the name of God? We must fire this God to break the pattern. History has factually shown us that while we are attempting to serve this God, we have always been attempting to destroy portions of our own man-kind.
Who was the Egyptians' evil? Who was the Israelites' adversary?
What? No Satan, Hell or Heaven, nor after-life has yet been mentioned? What a non-coincidence?
To “have faith” is to blindly and irrationally support something although it is nonsense. One cannot explain nonsense; ergo, one cannot explain faith. Do people, who influence you, want you to think and to learn or to believe and to obey? Those who promote faith want you to maintain your ignorance for their own control and your obedience purposes. Learning does not take place without a change of behavior.
Truth: The dedication to what is real and accurate. Shouldn’t we support the proven facts, even if they are not what we want?
Samuel Clements AKA Mark Twain
All that it takes for great lies to continue is for honest people to do nothing. Well, that also proves that they are not truly honest.
Feel-good believers compromise: When the truth is ugly, only a lie can appear beautiful. Believers tend to compromise reality in favor of beautiful fantasies and false-hoods.
Sometimes believers will stubbornly declare concerning an unlikely belief: “I just know it!” They know nothing. But, now you know that they desire to become an authority, superior to you, to control you and to be respected (obeyed) by you.
Wisdom can not be taught. For some thinkers, this material triggers enlightenment and knowledge. But, for some mind-set, God-fearing believers, it is like the taking of bitter medicine. These rational questions, perspectives, thoughts, theories and discoveries do tend to lie outside the dogmatic, religious mainstream of society.
The Constitution and the Bill of Rights assures that questions aren’t guilty. The technique of acquiring law-breaking facts through the questioning of illegal deeds is what best determines guilt in a justice system from the street cop to the supreme court.
Declaration of Independence Bill of Rights
Clergy of certain faiths have people praying for “the harvest”. Don’t people know that they and their children all must die to satisfy “the harvest”? Do they hate life on earth so much that they would willingly sacrifice all mankind to get off, they think, safely? What if their faith was misplaced and they found out they were not chosen? Would they still sacrifice all mankind for their gamble? Clergy spin sick scenarios based on sick scripture.
The Bible has stories that people are told to live by. Can you pick just one that you would like your child to live by if the child had to fulfill the story in its entirety? Which one?
Did you notice that in The Old Testament, God’s personal murderers, adulterers and thieves had more time on stage, in the spotlight, in the headlines, than anyone else?
God is temperamental? Isn’t that Satan’s job? How angry and evil would you have to get to do the things God did? Could you? If yes, is that why you worship God?
Do you like people who attempt to change the facts you have discovered with irrational faith (non-sense) with a straight face and denial? Nobody likes to be proven wrong but one often learns something when it happens. Often, it’s the painful lessons about God or ourselves, that we refuse to learn.
When people can’t effectively see anything but themselves, they invent a God to focus on. If you asked someone to define the characteristics of their God, it would be doubtful you would recognize any God of the Bible. You would probably recognize a fair description of themselves.
Could the biggest moral force in the universe be that which leaves natural things alone?
Natural evolution tolerating the acceptance of differences, may be the second greatest moral force. Destructive revolution with no tolerance of differences may be the greatest evil force.
How many times does the God of The Old Testament display, by deeds, a sense of morality? How many times does He not?
If God is our moral model, how well or far has it developed according to history and the current newspaper? It seems gun size and military strength determines morality if you listen to the testimonies of moral cowards and sheep.
Does your clergy preach for you to look forward to another world by forsaking this one? Does your clergy tell you that you don’t have to die to get there? Does he or she promote Santa Claus?
Did the Hebrews of the OT believe in an afterlife? Do most Jews today believe in an afterlife?
