This is just a dishonest smokescreen sonship. The truth is, if you are honest, that you just don’t want to find yourself once again defending the indefensible.
Originally posted by @sonshipYour query brought this verse from Job to mind:
You who condemn God as immoral in His laws, you don't need to wait to see what your partners will say. YOU tell us plainly if your judgment of God is right and Jesus Christ was wrong to call the God of Israel [b]"Righteous Father" (John 17:25) .
You don't need to wait to see what your buddies will say.
Tell us plainly, if you are more righteous than Christ.[/b]

Your query brought this verse from Job to mind:
“Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?”
Some posters condemn others to feel righteous - condemning God to feel righteous brings the repulsiveness to a whole new level.

I would think the loudest mouths on the immorality of His law, would come forward.
The amazing thing about the [b]Job verse is that God incarnate WAS condemned that we would be justified.[/b]
Originally posted by @sonshipIf you admire what the ancient Hebrews wrote about - and for - themselves - their culture, their folklore, their laws - then that's fine. If you admire what the early Christians wrote about Jesus in the wake of his death, then that's also fine.
Who objecting to the law of God's level of morality believes themselves to be more righteous than Jesus Christ?

I only got to the word "their" in your sentence. Its presuppositions are YOURS, not mine.

Originally posted by @sonshipThe Abrahamic mythology that Jews and Christians and Muslims share, and the cult of personality carefully constructed around Jesus in the centuries after his death, have no bearing on me and create no comparison or dilemma or question that I have to deal with. There is no onus on me to supply you with a set of superstitious notions that might replace the ones you already have.
If you think you are more righteous than Jesus Christ, just tell us.
Originally posted by @apathistThose who participated in saying the laws about servants / masters in the OT were immoral know enough to know what is meant by "righteous".
The best of jesus is pretty good, I admit.
Originally posted by @sonshipThe different ideologies and perspectives you encounter ought surely to be something you welcome, right? If you want ideological purity and a conspicuous lack of diversity, then there are forums, communities and blogs that will give you just that. Surely you find it fascinating to hear the thoughts of someone, for example, who thinks Jesus was a mortal, and that Paul distorted that man's message? Surely that is more interesting than talking to people who agree with you about your particular ideology?
I read it. Thankyou.
I'll re-read it.
That is not the trail I want to run off down here now.
