The following image has caused quite a debate:



The huge dicussion of this topic at this location:
http://digg.com/offbeat_news/Who_killed_more_people_in_the_Bible_image

There are Christians, non-Christians, athiests, and all other sorts of people with varying religious beliefs discussing this on that link. A lot of it is anger-fueled, with non-christians and athiests calling God a "total fucking prick" along with various other names and descriptions. I'd really like to take the time here to explain all of this, and why first of all, but the thing that pains me the most is to see all of those people denounce God while simultaneously calling him every name in the book. I wish I had a response to that picture. Shame on me for not knowing enough of the Bible to better explain it (if those numbers are in fact true). I know that the 10 people that Satan killed are the people in Job's life that he asked God for permission to kill, to test Job. The 2-million people God killed however, I am curious about. I know God was not happy with people in the Old Testament of the Bible, but that's exactly why he sent his son to die for us in the New Testament. Another thing this image is failing to mention, is the fact that God created Earth, and all of us on it.

The thing is though, you cannot judge God. He's God! I can't even understand myself, let alone the creator of the universe! God is just, and God is fair. I have no idea, other than the words printed in the Bible, about why God did things. You can only learn so much from a book. I have plenty of questions for God once I get to heaven. The Bible says that once I get to heaven, I will understand a lot more, and have knowledge greater than that of any man on Earth. But while I'm down here, I'm not going to be able to wrap my mind around certain things, because I'm human.

Despite any arguing, or explaining of this image, there is one thing that is not debatable. God is real, whether you want to believe in him or not. A lot of people on that thread are saying things like "don't you get it, we non-believers don't believe in your magical man in the sky, so we're not concerned with what's going to happen to us when we die". It's fitting that this discussion is happening so close to Easter. It is a historical fact that Jesus Christ rose from the dead 3 days after he was put to death on a cross. And that if you choose not to believe in him while you are here on Earth, you will be rewarded with a life apart from him when you die. Aka, hell. Those are facts. Whether you want to believe it or not.

It's a hard thing, giving up the things of this world that seemingly give you freedom. Following the word of God is probably the hardest thing I've ever done, and I fail miserably at it everyday. But that's the whole point of Jesus Christ. I'm not saved by my works, or my victories, or failures. I'm going to Heaven simply based on the fact that I believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. Arguing about whether or not God exists, or if he killed 2 million people or why he killed 2 million people is in the end, pointless. It's like trying to say you don't believe in oxygen because you can't see it, or touch it. Just because you can't see God, or touch him, doesn't mean he's not there.

    I don't know about Jesus rising from the grave as "historical fact". Just because somebody wrote it in a book years later does not make it "fact". BUT what is historical fact is that Ricky Borba CHEATS at bowling.

    Wow. At first I thought you were just another nut blindly attacking Christianity. I am so glad I kept reading! It is encouraging to see someone stand up for what they believe. It's a shame that Dana and Matt and Stacey are offended, but what you said is true. Those are indeed historical facts. And you stated several other good points. Keep it real. Don't let anyone shut you up. Keep fighting for truth. You have my respect.

    PS The Fetts are indeed dang awesome. My favorites.
