Christians give a pass to their god for things they'd normally find evil. A fancy titles such as "Alpha and Omega", and grandiose mythology of "holiness", infallibility, etc., somehow turn his flaws into mystical, magical qualities. Because God is magical, that makes his command to stone gays somehow mysteriously just, rather than cruel.
I sense that this is kind jumping to another complaint.
A kind of skeptical carpet bombing.
I think I deal with the initial complaint. And I acknowledge that after hearing many arguments for atheism, the argument from the case of human misfortune is to me, the strongest.
It is not so strong as to cause me to embrace Atheism.
Maybe if I did not read through the Bible, I might be shaken.
But it its pages I see a God before whose wisdom, righteousness, and love every imaginable obstacle is erected to STOP His will. And He branches over the walls down throughout the ages demonstrating that no opposition, no misfortune, and even no failure of his creature can arrest His will to arrive at Revelation 21 and 22
- no death, no tears, no suffering, but eternal blessing / eternal life.
"Cancer should have stopped God": maybe a strong argument, I admit.
But it is not strong enough.
And the unjust execution of the Son of God should
have stopped God. But it didn't. It rather turned the tables and worked all the more for Him to accomplish His eternal purpose.
