The Bible Is True.

Deut. 7:10: "Yahweh repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them."

 

The Bible teaches that Yahweh requites destructive retribution (“wrath”) upon a person who does wrong, or upon Christ on the cross as his substitute (“atonement”). (Gal. 3:10-13.) By worshipping him (“faith”), we can be pardoned of Yahweh’s retribution (“justification”). (Rom. 11:20-22.) Yahweh emits destructive retribution upon people who have done wrong and calls it "justice. (2 Thess. 1:6-9.) Yahweh claims that he is the ultimate person in the universe, and that his character and actions shall never change. (Deut. 32:39-42.)

 

The Bible might as well be true, because we encounter natural persons like the supernatural person therein described. We see that there are extremely powerful humans too, who, like Yahweh of the Bible, visit destructive retribution upon those who have done wrong and call it "virtuous." In comparison to the rest of us weak and powerless people, they are "Gods" no less than he is. They, too believe, as Yahweh declares, that they shall not be stopped and believe that they shall not ever say sorry or come to view what they did as cruel. We have evidence that there are Yahwehs of power – third world tyrant kings, abusive husbands, gang lords, corrupt police chiefs, pornography producers, vindictive bosses, sadistic fathers. I believe the Bible is true, because I have evidence that this world does not have only one Yahweh, but is full of Yahwehs! :woohoo:

 

The Bible is true? I will believe it! But what difference does it make? Does the existence of Yahwehs dethrone justice? Does the very real power they wield wipe away the hope of more ultimate powers that shall be brought to bear upon them in the fullness of time? Above all Gods, poised in eternal calm, is the figure of Justice. At the shrine of Justice the infinite God must bow, and in her impartial scales the actions even of Infinity are weighed. There is no world, no star, no heaven, no hell, in which creative retribution is not a virtue and where destructive retribution is not a crime. Justice shines her purgatorial light on the entire cosmos, full of beings of various levels of power and character, some of whom think they are hidden from her. Divine retribution is creative. :HaHa:

 

The Pagan faith is that, under the suffering care of Justice, the highest minister, all pains, indeed, and all sorrows, all demons, yea, and all evils themselves, are but the ministers of truth and transfiguration. (Plato, Gorgias, 472-81.) All Yahwehs, all Bibles, and all hells are intended to turn us into more faithful and purified Pagans. No hellfire will be lacking which would help Justice to transfigure us. :thanks:

 

The Bible is true? No doubt it is! But it need not dampen our joy or halt our moral growth to know, proof positive, that Yahweh exists and would visit destruction upon us. It need not make us hesitate from doing what is right and speaking what is true. We still turn towards the sunrise and start walking with joy, as Justice operates her retribution upon us and Yahweh alike. The Pagan hope is that one day, all Yahwehs, too, will become Pagans, and, although they never thought they would, will say sorry and make restitution with repentant grief. :vent:

Interesting take on everything there. You may have something in calling people who insist on doing bullsh** and hurting people "Yahwehs". That sure turns things around, doesn't it? Likewise, your quote from Plato is not far from what I think. There is much to be said for turning lemons into lemonade, and trying to make the best of your situation. Rain falls into every life and every land, and it's up to us to see it as a cold drippy annoyance or the agent of transformation that makes our garden grow abundant food.

 

I really don't know how many of those who walk in shadow will ever turn their lives around, though. Sometimes I think there needs to be a certain concentration of thugs and idiots in this world just so we can see examples of what not to do. There was a Greek philosopher who stated that without sickness we do not understand health. I would argue that without shadow walkers we do not know what is right and just.
