Is Yahweh Trustworthy?

I’ve heard a few christians say that the snake in the garden of blahblah was evil because his plan was to trick Woman into eating the forbidden fruit by first questioning Yahweh. (The thing about that, though, is that he just asked to clarify what Yahweh said. Woman answered him, clearing up any confusion he may have caused.) Why is it considered so bad to question Yahweh?

As I said in the parenthesis above, suggesting that it was a tangent when it really wasn’t, the serpent was simply clarifying what Yahweh had said. He was trying to get Woman to tell him what Yahweh told her, which he already knew. He then proceeded to reveal that what Yahweh said was a lie, which it was. Woman ate from the tree, and she didn’t die. She gave some fruit to Adam, and he didn’t die either. (This actually is a sidenote. The concept of spiritual death was invented by christian apologists to explain the story without Yahweh being a liar. Spiritual death is mentioned absolutely nowhere in the bible.)

So here’s the thing. To question Yahweh is said to be wrong, but right in the first part of the bible, it shows the importance of questioning him. He was a liar. Think of it this way. The bible says that Yahweh works in mysterious ways and that Yahweh shouldn’t be questioned. Whose word is the bible supposed to be? Hmmmm! The plot thickens! Why would a being not want his methods or motivations to be questioned? Because he’s not what he says he is!

Christians, wake up. Your god is evil.

  1. I thought you said the god in the creation story was El. Now, you’re saying it’s Yahweh. It’s a good thing you don’t forbid me from questioning you, because I’d like to know which of those two times you were correct.

        1. Yes. The christian god goes by many different names because it’s a ripoff of the gods of judaism and other ancient religions. It’s all so ridiculous, it doesn’t matter any more what we call him. The stories are recognizable because they are so often repeated as fact.

        2. Oh, I forgot one last important point. Giving a specific name to the christian god puts him on the same level as Zeus and Ra. It’s like when you call someone the king of rock and roll, it’s like there is no other, but when you just refer to him as Elvis, he suddenly becomes like every other dead celebrity.

          1. What are you saying? That we should refer to the Judeo Christian god as Elvis?

            But just as Elvis was one of many rock singers, I am one of many gods. Referring to someone as God does not make them extra special, for gods are many too. Maybe better than humans in a lot of ways, but certainly not something to be worshipped.

            1. What I’m saying is that Yahweh is just like Zeus in that he is a fictional character that should be remembered only as ancient folklore. You’ve eaten sandwiches, but you’ve never eaten Sandwich. You don’t wear Shoe. Every specific thing has a specific name or is referred to using an article, like “a god”, “the christian god”, or “Yahweh”. They don’t get named simply the broad category they belong to.

              1. So, you’re saying that, since he’s a fictional character, it doesn’t matter whether we refer to him as El or Yahweh? Does that mean that it doesn’t matter whether I refer to some other fictional character as Cloud McCloud or Dummy von Fartypants?

                1. No, I’m not saying that at all. I’m saying that no being gets to be named the broad category it belongs to. There is no deer called Deer, no person named Person, and no god named God. Some goes go by many names, so it’s all right to refer to him by any of the names he has historically been referred to as.

                  1. I don’t know. In George Of The Jungle, there was an ape called Ape. I’ve met a guy called Guy. I’ve even been to a mall called Mall. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say there’s a god called God, except for the whole supernatural part.
