Quote# 80865

God is the only one who possesses intrinsic worth, and if he decides that the existence of evil will ultimately serve to glorify him, then the decree is by definition good and justified. One who thinks that God's glory is not worth the death and suffering of billions of people has too high an opinion of himself and humanity. A creature's worth can only be derived from and given by his creator, and in light of the purpose for which the creator made him. Since God is the sole standard of measurement, if he thinks something is justified, then it is by definition justified

And here we have the fundamental problem with fundies.

"It's right because god says it is!"

That is horrifying. That is just - there is nothing whatsoever good about that.

Hm. Guys, this really is the logical conclusion of religion. If you really operate under the premise that an all powerful creator exists, this is the end result.

If God is so self-sufficient, according to you, why does he need glory?. And if he needs glory, why giving us free will and not manifesting himself?. Sorry man, makes no sense.

Not only that, but the Hebrew YHVH also reflect Godde's ANDROGYNOUS nature:

YAH - Divine Father
HE - Divine Mother
VAU - Divine Son
HE - Divine Daughter

Thus, there's a saying in Hebrew Mysticism: "He" means "She"

The only Abrahamic Faiths worth following are the mystical, esoteric kind...the exoteric, regular kind is crap (unless you're moderate or liberal with it). Gimmie Kabbalah, Gnosticism & Sufism, anyday!

And so morality and ethics is whatever arbitrary shit god tells us to do, right?

OMG, I hear a voice in my head telling me to murder my pillow! *stabstabstabstabstabstabstabstab*

Vincent, you're an idiot.

That's a fair working out from the premises. Only crazy people accept the premises.

@SpukiKitty

Yes! Excellent point and I agree 100%!

My understanding, however, is that, even more than androgynous, the Divine is actually hermaphroditic since it possesses a dual-sexuality rather than a non-sexuality.

Try telling that one to fundies without having their heads explode at the perceived "blasphemy"!

That picture of God is incredibly malicious and self-serving. This is why Christianity is waning, because its concept of ethics and morality is completely screwed up.

Explain, plz.

If something only has worth because its creator does, then why do I consider the characters in my fiction valuable? Clearly, if God is the only object with intrinsic worth, and those who don't accept your particular brand of God are worthless, why do I feel my characters are valuable?

@ CohibaMan

That's what I meant by "Androgynous", actually...something intersexed. I now realize I need better semantics. Lots of androgynous people identify as one sex despite outward appearances (I doubt Boy George denies he's a guy). I guess when describing oft-nebulous metaphysical principles, such as The Godhead/Tao/Brahman/Higher Power/etc., "Androgynous" can mean "Intersexed".

ANDROGYNY
Andro = Male
Gyn = Female

ANDROGYNY = Two sexes/genders

ASEXUAL = Without gender

If I was made from a douchebag like that, I ask to be unmade. Or join satan, that guy's got the right idea.

"One who thinks God's glory is not worth the death and suffering of billions of people has too high of an opinion of himself and humanity"

So God thinks that his fucking glory is so important that billions of his creation will be killed and tormented forever? And we're the ones with a high opinion of ourselves?!

Calvinism is a fucked up, sociopathic doctrine (and that's putting it nicely).

If being perfect means tortureing others, I think I'll go and do insane things to prove my flaws.
