Christians loving their genocidal God is like Jews adoring Hitler, and just as foolish.
As above, so below.
God condemned Christians to hell and extinction.
Hitler condemned the Jews to extinction.
The same expected results if both plans are successful. Except that God gets the bonus of the smell of burning human flesh. Um, Um, Good. Hitler was not so inclined.
The Jews know not to call evil good. They would not bend the knee to Hitler.
Christians and most of the other Abrahamic faiths, bend the knee to the God who used genocide on man and killed when the moral thing to do was to cure. Christians and Muslims thus call evil good.
I think this all began when the Christian and Muslim version of Eden were called a fall. This is the reversed of the Jewish version and is wrong. Christians and Muslims should have usurped the moral of the story when they usurped and altered the Jewish myths. Reading this myth literally has been quite harmful. Remember the Dark Ages and the Inquisitions.
If, as above so below is to be the dream of religion, and it is as we are to match laws with heaven, then the near perfect analogy above of as above so below must be brought into synch.
If you are a Christian or Muslim, please justify why you bend the knee to a God that does not deserve that title. A God who would blame his own creation for his errors in creating.
The claim that your God is good does not hold water in either the esoteric world, or in this one. Not in the literal world or the fantasy world of the Gods. Genocide is evil everywhere.
I know that you likely inherited your God and did not choose him for yourself. You can do better. You can find a God who owns up to his errors and repents to his victims, if he was man enough, instead of blaming others for his errors.
I think it time for believers to reject the genocidal God and stop wishing for the tyranny above in heaven, --- while trying to live in a democracy here below.
Bring democracy to heaven by telling your tyrannical God where to go.
God may have begun as foolish, --- Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; --- but God is almost ready to obey his betters. Mankind.
Will Christianity revive itself morally by returning to a more Jewish view? After all, the entire Bible was written by Jews and their take is more intelligent and moral.
If Jews are bright enough to reject the God who would annihilate them, why are Christians not following that good example and instead lovingly bend the knee to a proven tyrant, --- while at the same time promoting a less tyrannical life here on earth?
To believe is good but to believe in a condemning genocidal God is foolish. Do you agree?
"Will Christianity revive itself morally by returning to a more Jewish view? After all, the entire Bible was written by Jews and their take is more intelligent and moral. "
Not sure where you get that the Jewish view is more moral than the Christian. The Old Testament is just as bad as the new.

Jews were delivered from Egypt by God in the Old Testament but weren't delivered from Hitler. Why? Why did God suddenly go silent after Jesus?
