Proof that Freewill is a Joke in Christianity... and oh yeah, God hates us.



God's Evil Ways and The Joke He Calls Freewill

God is generally thought of as being an all loving God.  He hate's the sin, but loves the sinner.  But there are times where God's love is question, most commonly during disasters, trying times, upon seeing a horribly disfigured and/or handicapped person, and most commonly at elections.  Here are some examples:

"How could an all loving God do that to Christopher Reeve?"

"How could God have let the terrorists get to the World Trade Centers?"


Another time people can wonder about the love of God is while reading the Old Testament.  Here are some of the things I read that really made me wonder how people could call God "all loving":

"For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth." (Genesis 7:4)  Of course this is from the story of Noah's ark, when God decided he wasn't happy with how man turned out so he killed every man and animal on Earth except for a select few.  If he loves the sinners but hates the sin, why not kill the sin instead of the sinners?

"Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;  And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground." (Genesis 19:24,25)  Again, God opted for killing the sinners he loves, and not the sin he hates.  Go figure.

"And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.  And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead."  (Exodus 12:29-30).  Wow, I never thought that somebody who loved everyone would ever have something like that on there résumé.

I could go on forever with a list of all the mass murders, infanticides, genocides, and injustices this all loving God commits in the Old Testament, but I'm only allowed so much bandwidth and will have to omit the others.  Just read the Old Testament, you can't miss them.  I would like to touch on something a bit more philosophical.  I want to make you think a bit here.  Let's look at the concept of Freewill.

God, because he loved us, gave us freewill.  Meanwhile, God creates a Hell to burn anyone who is bad for all eternity.  We don't have to go, it's our choice.  If we choose to be bad people, God puts the eternal smack down on us and sends us to Hell to burn, scream, get tortured, and be miserable for all of eternity.

Here's the problem... If we use freewill, but not how God wants us to use it, we are severely  punished.  So do we really have freewill?  If God loves the sinner and hates the sin, why punish the sinner if he/she used the freewill God gave us?  Freewill in Christianity has more bullshit than a farm does in Texas.  Christians do not have freewill because they are living how they think God wants them to live... NOT living how they want to live.   Freewill does exist on earth, because we can physically do anything we are physically capable of doing.  If you want to go into a mall and shoot everyone with a fully automatic machine gun, you could.  Granted it's illegal and stupid.  So the judicial system would use its freewill to fry you in an electric chair.  But to say that there is a cosmic freewill in the Christian faith system would require one of two things... either being a complete and utter liar, or being on mind altering drugs.

I would say that freewill would be proof that God does not love anybody.  He is basically dangling it over the collective heads of Christianity and taunting them with "look at what I have, you can have it too, but then you have to ROT IN HELL!!!!!" 

Here's how I would imagine a meeting with God would go shortly after a person's death if they had used the freewill they were given.

God:  Sorry chump, you ain't on the guest list.  I guess you will have to burn in Hell for the rest of eternity... I hope you were a masochist.

Person:  What?  Why am I going to Hell?  I thought you loved everyone, I was expecting forgiveness.

God:  Well, you remember that thing I gave you... Freewill?  Well, you used it.  And if there is one thing that pisses me off it's when people do things that I don't want them to do.  The only thing I hate more than that is when people think for themselves.  Anyway, have a nice trip to Hell, loser.  (Does the "L" on his forehead with his index finger and thumb)

Person:  Then why did you give me freewill, if you didn't want me to use it?

God:  I'm an asshole like that. You probably thought I loved everyone too, you sucker, truth is, I hate nearly everyone.  There are only a select few people I liked...  Hitler, Crowley, Jack the Ripper, and of course Anton LaVey.  Now shut up and  buh bye!

Another interesting view of Freewill was brought up to me by a Christian reader the other day.    They were responding to Saul's death.  In 1 Chronicles 10:13 God killed Saul, yet in 1 Samuel 31:4 Saul killed himself.  A Christian said in an attempt to deny a contradiction, "God slays people in many ways. Here he used Saul himself. The Lord
gave Saul over to death. A little ambiguous, and a common mistake."

The problem with this explanation is that it show that God causes people to commit suicide.  Suicide is an act of freewill,  thus being a more honorable way to die than being killed.  But if God causes suicide, it means there is no freewill and therefore God creates everyone who is going to Hell, specifically to go to Hell.  How sick can you get?
