A God Who Kills?

Is it okay to not serve a God that kills?

I don’t want to kill, I stand opposed to the use of force in general.

Does God kill?

Dreams. Maybe? Fascinations. Perhaps?

How blessed will be the one who seizes and dashes your little ones against the rock” (Psalm 137:9)

Now that’s dashing someone’s dreams.

Is it okay to not serve the God that kills?

The Problem With Hell is Where It Comes From

What satan chooses to do with you is up to satan, not God. God doesn’t burn you with cigarettes and punish you for eternity, satan does. We make our choice to be with Him or satan.” (MBP)

This is also called ‘dualism’ – it puts God and satan on a sort of even playing field as ‘dual gods’. Which convinces me even more hell and such ideas are derived directly from Greek mythologies.

Let me explain what I mean by that – so you can see the similarities.

Greek: Zeus (rules heaven) and Hades (rules underworld/hell) (brothers)

Christianity: God (rules heaven) and satan (rules the underwolrd/hell)

Problem is, with hell, is the wording used is actually ‘hades’. This is not a Jewish terminology and not handed down from them to Christianity (Judaism has never used this term). So where does hades come from?

It was a Greek mythology idea about a god person that ruled the underworld, and you guessed it, it was ‘fire’. It’s not a far stretch to see how satan took on such hades like qualities and was added into the mix by Gentiles who felt their had to be ying-yang type quality for a heaven – there must also be a ‘hades/hell’.

In fact, the more I study and see all these subtle nuances in Christianity – the more I am noticing the pagan influence from the Greco-Roman world and it’s impact on Christianity (which was supposed to be a pseudo Jewish form of religion). I could easily mention the virgin birth as one of those symbols. The Trinity is another. Hell is obvious (because of the wording used). Even the way we view God – reminds me of how Zeus was viewed in the Greek mythologies.

Thus if hell is real, so is Zeus.
