Just curious, based on scripture.
Btw, are there any psychologists/psychiatrists on CFC?
Earnest assessment of grandeur.
Jesus: Why do people think I'm you?
God: Why would anyone confuse you with me?
God: Say it.
Jesus: ... Because we're the same person.
Yes, but I will not psychoanalyze God for you.
What part of "perfect" don't you understand?
I recommend Darkmatter2525's "Power Corrupts" series for the direct, comprehensive and super fun/entertaining answer to this question.
Yeah I watched the whole series.
Borderline personality disorder, dissociative identity disorder, psychopathy & narcissism. What doesn't he have? Oh, sadomasochism, but I guess that's not a disorder, just a kink...
Erm... Excuse me?
Spoiler NSFW :
Who but a narcissistic masochist would invent such an elaborate way of self-torture to forgive your own "children"? Couldn't he just have been like:
"hey dudes, and dudettes and followers of Ishtar, to use the episteme specific term for transgendered and non-genderconforming folks. You remember that piece of fruit your ancestors weren't supposed to eat that gave y'all a moral sense, that for some reason I didn't want you to have? Yeah, so forget all that Hades stuff you've lately culturally appropriated from the Greeks. That's not real. You're all welcome back to paradise, once you're dead. Mmkay?"
We're supposed to be thankful that he "sacrificed" himself, while in reality he didn't sacrifice himself, because he's just waiting to judge us in the end anyway? So he just put up all that elaborate show just that people would feel they are indebted to him for some supposed sacrifice to solve a problem he himself caused in the first place? That's pretty lame.
He's also clearly a sadist by the way he punishes people for insignificant norm violations in the Old Testament. Or even making us go through life in the first place, really. You've got unlimited power to make us all happy, but you prefer to have us here suffering? Really, dude? Hence, a sadomasochist. But I'm not trying to kinkshame him or anything.
You can't really judge, because it depends on the mythos. In the OT, it's a petty tyrant. Later greek philosophy makes Yahweh more epic.
When people re-write history to say certain things were God's will or God's commandment, they're slandering God and also committing evil themselves
From what I remember from Old testamend God was described there a bit cruel. I think there was a passage that He "ordered" Israelites to slay captured man and take women as wives - it seems to me it was probably made up as God commandement (like El Machinae said) by priests to justify slaughter. Im pretty sure it was a common practice back in ancient times too.
It is really hard to put any human personality trait on a mythical being - truth is we can't. If the Bible is to be believed however we are His children made to be alike - so maybe He has it all: the psychological conditions?/traits? (don't know how to say this ) - Like He is sane and insane at the same time - endless possibilities here really.
In The Adventures of God in his Search for the Black Girl by Brigid Brophy God hated the way he'd been depicted by his followers but discovered that as a fictional character he had no effective recourse for them blaming their own actions on him.
Who is Yahweh ? Please, reference : not all of us are familiar with the American pop culture.
Yahweh is a god from ancient middle-east cultures. Sumeria, Judea, those sorts of regions. He is basically the proto-christian, capital G God.
Oh I see... Thank you. For some reason, I thought this had to do with Oprah.
Megalomania, I guess?
A bit bipolar, like with Noah, a bit sadism, see with Hiob...mmhhh... rest need to think
