The Bible describes God as a war-god who creates evil:
People have fought each other over the myth of Jesus for centuries. The slaughter continues throughout the world to this day. If indeed, Satan does exist, he could not have put on a better disguise than to pretend himself as a saviour. Since many Christians believe Jesus represents a leg of the Trinity, then Jesus connects himself directly with God:
The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. -Exodus 15:3 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. -Isaiah 45:7
Concluding from the Bible's own words, Satan could not possibly serve as the target scapegoat for evil. Clearly, God here holds the responsibility for creating evil. Therefore the blame for evil from Satan must shift to the guilty party: God.
Consider that Christians throughout history have slaughtered their enemies, fought religious crusades and "holy" wars in the name of their war-god. The "peace" only occurs for them, between the evil acts, as they pray and rise up again to battle their enemies. Priests and ministers, the grand beggars of the world, con millions from their hard earned money. Why so many sexual abuse cases by priesthood? Why so much money laundering? Why so involved in power politics? Why haven't the sheep who bow at their feet never see their con-game?
Only a most hideous mental virus could cause such blinded devotion to such a monster god-- the addiction of a belief-system so thoroughly spread throughout humanity that its believers can no longer tell the difference between what happens inside their head and what happens outside their head.
Does God equal Satan in the Bible?
Both Satan and God provoked David to number (censure) Israel. Read the following Bible verses and judge for yourself:
AND Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel. -I Chronicles 21:1 AND again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah. -II Samuel 24:1
Either way, both ghosts speak of standing up against Israel, hardly the kind of god worthy of worship and mental slavery. Indeed, this God as described in the "holy" Bible acts exactly like Satan.
If you consider yourself a Christian and think this art shows Jesus unfairly, think again. The following information will no doubt prove shocking, yet it appears in the very last page of the Bible which appears to reveal the identity of Christ:
Note that the name Lucifer (another name for Satan*) means light bearer, or morning star:
"How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer to the ground..." - Isaiah 14:12
The last page of the Bible reveals the shocker:
"I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star." -Rev. 22:16
Consider that Christians who perpetrate atrocities for love of God are indistinguishable from those they call Satan possessed. In effect these Christians have become equal to the very evil they so fear.
It should also become clear as to why many freethinkers have rejected Christianity as well as all forms of belief systems.
Although the author intended this article as satire for nonbelievers, a Christian believer, however, must take these arguments as a serious blow to Christian theology, not to mention a demand to rethink their position about his or her belief in their diabolical "god."
The idea of the name Lucifer as synonymous with Satan goes back for centuries. In Isaiah 14:12, St. Jerome, translated the Hebrew word for "morning star" into the Latin term "Lucifer" (light bearer), a name commonly ascribed to Satan by Christians, and represents the fallen star, an ancient symbol for the fallen or evil one. In the NRSV Bible version, Isaiah 14:12 describes the fallen as "O Day Star, son of Dawn!" The Day Star, or morning star actually refers to the planet Venus, although, of course, the ancients did not know about planets. Venus always appears low on the horizon and the ancients thought of it as a star fallen from heaven (fallen angel). Venus also appears as the brightest "star" in the sky, thus the reference to the "bright and morning star" in Rev. 22:16. Although the Isaiah verse describes the fallen king of Babylon, Christians have, for centuries, ascribed Satan as taking many forms (for example the serpent). Thus, a conclusion, based on Christian beliefs of Satan, and the belief in the "inerrancy" of the Bible, one must conclude that Jesus has revealed himself as Satan!
