Any Christian I’ve ever discussed “evil” with has told me that Satan is responsible for anything evil in the world. Murder? Satan. Eartquakes? Satan. Child abuse? Satan. War, famine, pestilence, hurricanes? Satan, every time!
Then I ask: “Who created Satan?” and I get an answer along the lines of: “He was an angel, but he didn’t want to follow the word of god, so he was cast from heaven. He now rule hell, and is a bad fellow indeed!”
Sounds legit, right? Not according to Isaiah 45:7.
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
Holy cow! God tell everybody he’s responsible for both darkness and evil!!
I guess Christians don’t know their book well enough?
Well, y’all know this, but I’m still saying it. Religion is for children, just like other fairytales. Don’t believe me? It’s in the Bible:
1 Corinthians 13 (New International Version)
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
I put the ways of childhood behind me. I learned about science and reason, and I stopped believing in invisible friends.
