“Is God a Moral Monster?” asks Christian apologist author Paul Copan. Yes, the Christian god character is a wicked monster. This book’s focus is to explain why atheists are wrong when they argue the god character Yahweh is an immoral, vain, short-tempered, jealous, petty, murderous shit.
Instead, Copan argues that god’s jealousy is akin to the jealousy a husband feels when his wife is flirting with another man — I wish I was making this up.
Copan goes on to say Abraham and god weren’t really behaving as raving lunatics when they decided to gut Isaac as a means to prove Abraham’s loyalty to god. Copan says Abraham was so sure god either wasn’t really going to make him go through with it or that if he did kill his son, god would simply regenerate Isaac back into being. This begs the question then, if god knows everything how did he not know Abraham knew it was bullshit? And, if Abraham knew it was a trick, then it wasn’t really a test of his faith.
All in all the points made in the book are moot since we know this is all mythology. However, if you want some insight into just how far an apologist will go to try and make the cesspool bible seem like a good and moral document, be sure to check this out.
