      Are you created in Godís image?

      Are you created in God's image?

      "The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."
      Į Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

      Deuteronomy 32:4
      He is the Rock, his work is perfect

      Matthew 5:48
      Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

      Scriptures tell us to be like God and emulate all he does as we are to follow in his footsteps.

      If you are a Christian, are you capable of following your God?

      Would you be able and willing to do some of the things the bible shows God doing?

      Are you created in Godís image?

      Not as bad as Allah in the Quran.

      Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

      That is quite the recommendation.

      What about the story of King David. God tortured his baby fir 6 days before finally dispatching it.

      Could you do such a thing for your God or would your morals get in the way?

      Am I created with the essential things for life? Yes. I don't believe in the biblical God, so I can't say I am created in the image of God, but I am created in the likeness of the universe.

      A lot of the time it seems like this section is used solely for the purpose of mental-masturbation. .-.

      Isn't that what extended discussion is normally used for anyway? I mean really any time somebody wants to talk it is for mental masturbation. Look at Beyond Dreaming, it's a bunch of close-minded individuals that believe psychic abilities and the astral plane and shared dreaming are real without a doubt, and if you question it or ask them to prove it then they get super pissed. Most of the threads go something along the lines of: "Title: Had a precognititive dream. Post: Hey guys I had a dream in which I vaguely saw something that happened to me in the future like 3 years later and this has happened to me before. Are there any more people with precognitive dreams here?" Then it's followed by someone saying everyone has the ability it's just yours are manifesting right now and that there are more powers too.

      You're telling me that people that post saying they have powers so that other people who post about having powers post about how the powers are totally real and so powerful and anyone who doesn't believe them is close-minded, jealous, stupid, or something else glaringly negative isn't the peak of mental masturbation? Lol.

      I digress. I posted about this in your tree of life thread, let me quote:

      Maybe it's more like a secret challenge, you could think of it that way I think. Perhaps God really did mean we have become as Gods? Despite the original story telling of an omnipresent and/or omnipotent being, what if that were a fabrication (and I don't mean in the sense most atheists would like to use the word--that's more of an external fabrication, saying ALL OF IT is made up rather than an internal fabrication like I am suggesting) and God originally created his children and perished, the price maybe of creation? Perhaps we too, his children, now as Gods ourselves are destined to create our own children, in our image, and send them out into space to go fend for themselves on a shit-filled planet where they have to find out for themselves (and not simply be taught by another, or rather maybe to have an initial teaching but no enforcement of the teachings... whatever). Haha.

      Your thread just reminded me of going on 420chan in the /dis/ section. About a year ago some guy was so fucked up he posted the most remarkably sensible gibberish you've ever read. Most of it wasn't even words or real words anyway, and most of his meaning was so all over the place and difficult to make anything out of--until you read the end of his post. He was basically on a dissociative fueled thought rage. First spewing off about whatever, then going on more about how humans do such meaningless things. God, me explaining this does not begin to accurately describe how much nonsense and all over the place his post was. Anyway, he eventually got to a point, he finally said something like "and man will make its own new shiny metal child and send it off into the universe now, goodbye spaceson" except not so... able to be read. See, the whole post was unreadable to the point I challenged myself to read the whole thing through. I did, and somehow was not disappointed.

      Knowing man has become as Gods, would it be better for us to end human existence while ushering in a new age for a new "child" we bear? Or should be create that child at all? Should be create our children and remain in contact with them until they are ready to be on their own? Do we hide our existence from them?

      I think God didn't know what he was getting into when he decided to create that which breathes, sweats, bleeds, shits, and feels emotion and is self-aware. Makes me think of like a 14 year old kid knocking up some equally young chick and then the two of them being left with the crazy aftermath that leaves them totally exhausted.

      Totally agree with this, its like people who say they lucid dream to 'become more spiritual'.

      Yes, do!

      Also, perfect example of what I was talking about:

      Supernatural Abilities/Skills

      Hahahaha. Unless his post was a joke of course, but I soon learned after reading nearly every post in BD thinking it was a joke that it really wasn't.

      Anyway, sorry to not really contribute to the topic but no one has brought up anything new yet so I felt like posting this instead. :\

      oh, that quote again. I've been an atheist my whole life, but it's kind of annoying when smug atheists get off every time they have the opportunity to quote Dawkins
      I'm not saying you are like that, but those who are can be really annoying sometimes

      I heard that many parts of early christianity were taken from Babylonian (polytheistic) mythology. Basically what they did was take the babylonian god of war and give him the status of the one and only god in a monotheistic cult.
      I think it was this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlnnWbkMlbg
      not sure if this guy is right. He is a deconverted christian.
