THIS JOKE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
1. Satan to get at Jehovah acts
through a snake to persuade Eve to violate Jehovah's order not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.
2. Eve then persuades
her husband, Adam, to also eat from the tree.
3. Neither of them had in their long lives ever been given an order--they
had no parents. Nor were they warned that they would be punished for violating the order of their Creator.
punishes both of them by causing both of them to grow old slowly and die (Adam lives 930 years), that they be cast out of
the Garden of Eden, that they obtain food only by toil, and that their lives be full of sorrows. For Eve, Jehovah adds that
she shall endure pain in child birth.
5. Jehovah punishes the snake by taking its legs and making an enmit between
the snake and humans.
6. The punishment of humans does not end with the grave, but after the death of Christ all but
a select 144,000 of them, as revealed in Revelation, will be damned to everlasting Hell.
7. The punishment of Adam
and Eve will be extended to all future humans, though they have done nothing worthy of punishment; so too for the snake. (Yahweh's
sense of justice.)
8. For to undo the violation of God's order by Adam and Eve, God sends his only son to earth as
a mortal so that he will be executed by the Roman government at the request of the Jews. This ritualistic death of Christ
assuages the original sin, but only for the select 144,000. Thus to get at Satan, Jehovah punishes Adam, Eve, nearly all later
humans, and the snake. Then Jehovah permits his son to become a mortal and to be tortured to death.
9. Jehovah, who
is omniscient and thus foresaw the fall of humans, did not act to stay the hand of Satan.
10. Jehovah, who is omnipotent
and omniscient, did not act to make humans more perfect, in particular wiser and more obedient.
11. Jehovah, who is
omnipotent, did not act to undo the effects of eating from the Tree of Knowledge.
12. Jehovah, who is perfectly good
(beneficent), permitted damnation, permitted man to fall, and for his Son to be tortured to death.
13. Jehovah, who
is perfectly moral and just, acted to punish the children of Adam and Eve for all generation and this punishment to extend
beyond the grave.
14. Jehovah, who is omnipotent, would only accept the death of his son as atonement for original
15. Jehovah chose to make the wisdom of logical analysis and science a foolishness (see Corinthians I chapter
1:18-25). One example is by requiring for salvation the partaking in the Eucharist and having absolute faith in Christ as
a condition for salvation. Even thought more fulfill these conditions, only 144,000 of the select Christians (as stated in
Revelations) will be saved.
16 Is this an account of the doings of a super-perfect God, or the tale about a primitive
God and his Son as told by some illogical priests?
