What is excommunication but a fancy Papal cancel?


gcruzatto

Lucifer is literally a canceled angel


jaykyo933

Actually. Lucifer has no power and can’t do anything unless God allows it. Says the Bible. Which would mean Lucifer is still being loyal… which in itself makes no sense and is further proof that the Bible is a piece of bs


JarlaxleForPresident

People call Judas a traitor but his entire existence is so he could betray dude later on. Having a Divine Plan and free will at the same time seems counter intuitive


euphratestiger

Judas should be celebrated as a hero. Jesus' crucifixion is probably the most holy event for Christianity and he helped make it happen.


th1s_1s_4_b4d_1d34

As absurd as that sounds IIRC the early Christian church debated making him a saint for that reason.


jibjab23

The Christians would have to learn to think objectively with the facts presented clearly with no bias. Never going to happen.


thatweirdkid1001

Lmao no religious person can act without bias let alone the most violent of them all


Hounmlayn

And if jesus was the father and son, then he himself made judas do it, because it was gods plan for him to do so. It was also gods plan to put himself on the cross, it wasn't the romans doing so, it was gods plan. Basically, god is the biggest egotist and gaslighter in the universe, wanting to be celebrated for his sacrifices which he never sacrificed to rid you of something he gave you.

And God practiced infanticide… on more than one occasion.

Dopplegangr1

If you're mean to him he'll punish you for eternity because he loves you


euphratestiger

> Basically, god is the biggest egotist and gaslighter in the universe Even worse: he plants the tree of knowledge in Eden, tells Adam and Eve not to eat from it and doesn't tell them why. It's only once they eat the fruit that they gain knowledge of good and evil and realise that going against god was bad. Then they're punished. If not to create original sin and then provide humanity with redemption, why plant that tree? It's basically racketeering.


Zero98205

But he has perfect foreknowledge too! He *knew* they were going to do it! It's like having a 4th dimensional narcissistic dickbag and calling that thr heavenly father. Shit, at least Enki got himself a good wank to create life.


Martin_Aricov_D

The Bible also doesn't tell us how long it took for Adam and Eve to actually eat the fruit, so (since they were immortal at that point) it was literally just an eventuality that they'd eat the damn fruit if for no other reason than boredom after a few aeons of sitting around naked in a garden


money_loo

Holy shit Ego from Guardians of the Galaxy suddenly makes perfect sense.

The god-complex guy named Ego whose kids were literal extensions of himself so he could spread across the universe had Narcissist traits?

neph36

Judas was set up by God to betray Jesus. He then kills himself in shame and goes to hell. I feel bad for him.


borschchschch

>goes to hell Nah, we don't actually know that. The Bible doesn't say that any one person went to hell or was condemned. All it says is that you'll be judged at the hour of your death, and that even then, repentance matters. There's a lot of talk in this thread about things people think the Bible says, when it's pretty clear that they haven't actually read and understood it themselves (regardless of any personal religious belief). I don't blame them, it's a large and complex document, but it's very silly to speak authoritatively about it in that case. They're also confusing a lot of it with popular images from Dante's *Inferno*, which is not biblically accurate.


BIG_YETI_FOR_YOU

Not to mention the bible literally mentions that god's pretty forgiving and absolution doesn't necessarily require newer things like confession and communion and whatnot.


nomad80

This thread could be a top 10 in r/confidentlyincorrect


CalmPanic402

I read an excellent argument that judas was the loyal disciple Jesus asked to betray him so the whole thing could happen. Judas was following orders. That said, omniscient god is a fairly new addition to christianity. But changes to the bible aren't something the church likes to talk about...


kylehatesyou

There's a Gospel of Judas, written around the same time as the others that paints Judas this way. Essentially, Jesus told him you have to betray me, and so he did. It's apparently a Coptic or gnostic text from around 130 to 240 AD, and was thrown out by the church fairly early, like other texts complicated the canon (Thomas, Mary, Peter, etc.).


jackp0t789

Dude could have literally just turned himself in, but nah... had to make homie betray him and earn himself eternal hatred for the next two thousand years.


FriendlyGuitard

>But changes to the bible aren't something the church likes to talk about... Actually they do make a big deal out of it, that's the ecumenical councils were about in the original catholic religion. Divergence of opinion and reinterpretation led to shisms and other split of the christian world. The US has been funded by a lot of those Christian communities fleeing Europe. At my Catholic school we used to learn the difference between catholicism before the Council of Trent and after. Also the important stuff and change along the way.


Parris-2rs

It wasn’t even till the council of Nicaea in 325 till the church established the holy trinity. And from then on out it was considered heresy to claim Jesus was inferior to God.


Op-boi4ever

Objection Jesus. Heresy

vistadelmar

ITS ALL PART OF GOD’S MYSTERY. Shut up with your logic and shit!


TomsRedditAccount1

When you actually think about it, a truly free will isn't just incompatible with the Bible, it's incompatible with neuroscience. Now, this is a *huge* oversimplification, but your decisions are caused by the nerve layouts and chemical reactions in your brain. You can't freely control what your individual neurons do, so that means that you don't have free control over your decisions.


Alediran

But they are made by your brain, which is part of you. So you still own your decisions, even if the are mostly subconscious.


gildorratner

The thing that desperately confuses me is that people seem to rarely question God's free will? How can an omniscient, omnipotent being not have predetermined the actions of all it created? If God lacks free will then how is that different than us being simply created of the universe? Without God the question of Free Will is fairly meaningless as determinism is not decided by intelligent outside force, but rather cause and effect. So our actions and thoughts are still individual and result from our unique experiences and circumstances, while also being determined by those same things. There is no flaw or contradiction in this....Whereas the existence of God would make the notion of free will extremely foundational, as we would have to question whether we only exist in a determined state as an extension of God's will or as free beings that exist in response to God's already predetermined views? In the former case we still lack free will and in the latter case everything is a test and the cost of failure is eternal damnation? It is also a test provided with full knowledge of our success or failure making it a rigged game. An example would be that God knew Job would remain faithful, because God knows all and so did not choose someone that would renounce God because the test was rigged. I know this is something discussed by theologians and there is probably a solution that my secular sin addled mind cannot comprehend. But it is something that has always disturbed me from an outside perspective about faith. I posed this question to a religious friend and it seemed to have made them pretty upset and they told me that they'd think about it and they came back and affirmed that God must have free will because we have free will... which didn't answer my question but I was happy that they seemed contented with the answer.

this concept is based on misreading of scripture, generally Isaiah and/or Luke, and weak midrash. only biblical literalists (who fundamentally misunderstand scripture and btw didn't even exist until the 17th century) would take these mystical descriptions out of context. that's why it makes no sense these people read a poem like it's a cookbook, then try to exegete and legislate. it's nonsense

There’s no such thing as free will. We are mostly at the mercy of our brain wiring and chemistry.

Easy to say when your brain works correctly. You could have a brain tumor in the appropriate spot in the brain that makes you have violent impulses to kill everyone on the road. Where’s your free will then? the level of effort to control your brain impulses is staggering more difficult, as compared to an average healthy brain.


Spottyhickory63

also, if god was all-powerful, he’d be able to find a way to give you free will *and* make it impossible to disobey him

Let me get this straight; An all knowing, omnipresent, all powerful god put humans in the same place as *this* tree, told them not to eat the [Unspecified fruit], then gave them “free will” and *didn’t* forsee his creation he built from the ground up, doing the one thing he told them not to do? god isn’t powerful enough to make a somewhere else for the people to be god isn’t omnipresent enough to stop them, apparently god isn’t knowing enough to foresee this and he isn’t loving enough to forgive and eve was transgender, change my mind

Sounds like entrapment. Why put a tree there no one is allowed to touch? God was a cop.


FLSun

Supposedly the tree of knowledge. So. Adam and Eve didn't know the difference between good and evil yet God is going to punish them for it. And according to the myth, God told them, "But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die!" So Adam and Eve who didn't know the concept of good or bad until they actually ate the fruit were supposed to die the same day for doing something they didn't know was bad. What a dick! So they were supposed to die the same day yet the bible tells us that Adam lived to be 930 years old! Yet this "Loving God" couldn't tell us not to eat the poison berries or stay away from poison ivy? How did I or anyone else ever fall for this BS? Oh yeah, it was drilled into us from the time we were babies before we even knew how to determine what is real and what is mythology.


JarlaxleForPresident

It’s almost like mindless obedience is one of the first lessons the church teaches you for some weird reason

When God kills a kid he opens a window.” How are so many people so afraid of the idea that things aren’t permanent, or completely designed and controlled by someone? I feel like I’m surrounded by anxious, neurotic psychopaths.

This was on full display during the pandemic. People begging for prayers and support, but won’t take the vaccine that will keep them alive. Why can’t it be god’s plan for you to get the fucking shot?


Bammer1386

When I was in school a few years ago I went on a road trip with a couple classmates. We got drunk and stoned at an Air BnB and were up all night talking about Religion. I will never forget the way one of my classmates meant it when he said that without god he would probably steal and rape and kill, and also said something along the lines of non christians should die. We were really really fucked up, but after that moment I decided it was bedtime, and I locked that fucking door. I still think about it whenever i see him and I'm in a disadvantageous position where he could pop me without knowing, lol. I'm probably overthinking, but all religious nuts need is an "Execute order 66" moment from their priests and it'll activate the chip in their brains.


indy_been_here

What about... Ya know... HELL


DrDan21

Old Testament god didn’t even need a hell


Funkycoldmedici

That’s why I contend that the New Testament is worse. The old testament simply sentenced unbelievers to death, but that’s not enough to satisfy the bloodlust of the “prince of peace.” He wants you to suffer a whole afterlife of endless torture for not believing. We can’t pretend he does not want it, because as an all-powerful deity, nothing happens that he does not want to happen.


NyanPotato

Hell, he killed a man and his wife on the spot for a mild lie about their donation to the church. Acts 5, Ananias and Sapphira. If slaughtering people because they did something you don't like isn't the ultimate form of "cancelling", I don't what is.


[deleted]

It's not just God, the Isrealites killed off or displaced a buttload of people after the Exodus story too. Canaanites, Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites all got canceled and God looked the other way


Seraphaestus

> God looked the other way When he wasn't directly telling them how many of their child sex slaves to give to him as tribute. [Numbers 31:15-30](https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Numbers+31%3A15-30&version=NRSVUE) >Moses said to them, “Have you allowed all the women to live? [...] Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known a man by sleeping with him. But all the young girls [lit: children among the women; source: NASB] who have not known a man by sleeping with him, keep alive for yourselves. >[...] >The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “You [all] make an inventory of the plunder captured, both human and animal. [...] From the share of the warriors who went out to battle, set aside as tribute for the Lord one item out of every five hundred, whether persons, oxen, donkeys, or sheep. Take it from their half and give it to Eleazar the priest as an offering to the Lord.


[deleted]

Any sane person would read this passage and refuse to worship God. And yet I'm willing to bet that a lot of Christians would initially try to make up an excuse to justify it. Any Christian who tries to justify this is a sick fuck who should be locked up for life.


Threadheads

I think the atheists have the right idea: cancel god


Antelope010

> God looked the other way God actually *told them* to go to war and destroy those people. And God got mad when they didn't kill everyone as they had been told to do.


jackp0t789

Also worth looking into the real story of Chanukah... The Seleucid authorities had the audacity to allow, encourage, and defend the rights of people to worship whoever they wanted in Jerusalem- not just Yahweh... Judah Maccabee did not like that at all, so he led an ISIS like militia killing all non jews and open minded Jews they could get their hands on until the Greeks eventually finally killed them all to death


Skulcane

Well I mean, he DID warn them. Noah was all "Come take a ride on my boat, cuz the rain is comin" and they were all "Nah brah".


Reeefenstration

"Hey you! Get on my boat! God speaks to me in my head! Get in the boat! Don't mind the noise of every animal in existence tearing each other apart below decks! Me and my three sons and their wives are going to repopulate the earth! I'm 600 years old!" I'd pass too.


Naive_Geologist6577

To be fair, if one dude in premodern times with virtually no tools not only predicted a flood but also managed to build the largest boat to ever exist in a few days and collected animals from across the entire world including species nobody knew existed, I'd think God's talking to him too


plant_124

Yeah, but he also condemned his grandson to slavery eternally because his son noticed he was naked, so like, do you reeeeally want to take your chances with that?


clxrdr

Was this before or after the rain started? And still don't know ,he had a giant boat and didn't give any guidelines about mating


Qetuowryipzcbmxvn

It was after the flood had ended. Noah made wine, got absolutely schwasted, and passed out naked in his tent. His son decided to check on his father, because at this point he was like 100 so it was very possible that Noah kicked the bucket. It's unclear how much dong Noah was hanging, but apparently his mayo injector disgusted his son enough that he immediately fled the tent upon seeing it. He couldn't bear to face his father anymore so he had his brothers walk into the tent with blindfolds on and holding a blanket to cover Noah. When Noah woke up, he immediately knew what happened and said, "my son, your son can go fuck himself. He is now to serve his brothers as a slave forever. Maybe that'll teach you a lesson." And so he punished his grandson instead of the guy who actually did the deed.


systemnate

I was raised in a religious household so I thought I'd read the Bible. Came upon this part, which is just a few chapters in and couldn't wrap my head around it at all. I asked my Mom, she didn't know. I asked some people at my church and they couldn't give a good answer either. This was probably my first "this is all full of shit" moment.


derek_rex

This is one of those Bible things that got mistranslated badly. It’s all about the context. If you really look at it, including verses in Leviticus, the actual Hebrew is telling its audience (At the time!!) it’s incest (warranting this reaction in their culture, and arguably ours). Thats the biggest problem with the Bible today imo, that there are plenty of cues and social norms that are lost today that jews who the Bible (at least the OT) was intended for would have understood easily. You have to realize that none of these writers thought anybody but jews who were familiar with their history would read this. That’s why that all happened. I’m drunk right now, but will gladly pull out receipts if anyone cares.

When you're that much of a sinner that you deserve to be killed via drowning, but there is a loophole that if you're calculated enough to believe Noah and climb on his boat then you can live and all is forgiven.


PotiusMori

I mean, that's the entire premise of Christianity. Everyone is a sinner deserving a final death, but accepting Jesus's sacrifice means your forgiven. Every other biblical story basically reiterates that metaphorically


Wit-Hoid6674

Noah got blackout drunk and then got raped by his grandson, Canaan. It’s shortly after the flood.

Why did they have to find a different word for “accountability?” Why is a culture of consequences suddenly “cancel” culture


McCHitman

It’s different to hold someone accountable. But to go waaaaay back and dig up some stuff and try to ruin someone by holding them accountable for an old way of thinking with current day thoughts is pretty cancel culture to me. If someone was a terrible person in the 80s, they may have turned their life around today. But people don’t care. They don’t see a redemption story, they focus on the past terrible and judge that person TODAY on their past. That’s super dumb.

HopingToBeHeard

It’s actually debated in Islam whether or not the flood was a local or global thing, but it’s generally thought that this was after much warning. I know that in the west we see Islam as violent or focus on its martial aspects, but there’s a lot in Islam about God being merciful. In fact, according to the Koran, Gods greatest quality is his mercy. A Muslim just made a statement that’s in line with his religions teachings and someone (probably an Atheist) brought up a Christian view of a religious event as a clap back. This “clever” comeback is anything but.

Lets not forget the whole, "if you don't agree with me, you burn forever and ever" thing. That's kind of a big one.


MarilynMansonsRib

He summoned a fucking bear to "cancel" a bunch of kids because they made fun of an old man.


Grimwulf2003

Bald man wasn’t it?


DogeBrianToTheMoooon

God is cruel and unmerciful


geoffbowman

He literally killed a guy for pulling out... (Genesis 38:8-10) He killed a guy for touching his special box of holy shit... to keep it from falling over... (2nd Samuel 6:6-7) He killed several kids for making fun of a bald guy... (2nd Kings 2:23-24) He killed a guy’s newborn baby to punish him for a murder the baby wasn’t even conceived before... (2nd Samuel chapters 11-12) He killed a guy’s entire family to win a bet with the devil... (Job... the entire book) God. LOVES. Cancelling. People. EDIT: I added the references for the bitches who wanna pretend they read the bible but didn't realize this horrific shit was in there. It gets even worse the more you read: focus on all the stuff that your pastors don't preach on. Leviticus, Numbers, Deutoronomy, Judges, Samuel, and Kings. Any of you punk ass "believers" wanna call me a bot now? I studied to show myself an approved workman who need not be ashamed who rightly divides the word of truth (II Timothy 2:15)... now it's your turn. Do your damn homework or fuck off but "I bet you don't even know the context" is not gonna work as a counter argument in this case. I was winning national bible quiz competitions before my front goddamn baby teeth came out. I KNOW context motherfuckers!

better comeback would be "god doesnt exist" tbh.


UnprincipledCanadian

*allegedly


honzikca

It's not even alleged, a global flood has been thoroughly disproven...


Revencarna

Didn't he slaughter children just for making fun of a bald dude?


pianotherms

God cancels the shit out of everything constantly. The first four books of the bible are him being a crybaby bitch when people dare to ask about anything.


Dumble_Dior

He canceled Adam and Eve almost immediately. He banished his own son to hell for forever. And he keeps people in control by threatening eternal suffering if you don’t obey. Don’t give me that lmao


InevitableAd9683

Not to mention, assuming we're talking the Judeo-Christian god here, like, Adam? Eve? Fruit? Garden? What the fuck do you think all that was?


MrGumburcules

Adam and Eve got cancelled for picking the wrong produce.


jiwjh380

There was also sodom and gamora. And the time he killed a bunch of innocent children because Pharoah was being a cunt.


Older_1

Also Sodom and Gomorrah (even though the people there were quite fucked up)


_-Stoop-Kid-_

What are miscarriages if not people that God cancelled?


CharlieSwisher

I mean... “LITERALLY” feels like a bit of a stretch


qoou

Hell is eternal cancellation


SimtheSloven

People forget the reason for the flood


y_do_i_need_to_hide

Once. He promised to never do it again. This is fortunate, in light of the way we live. :)


FaeShroom

The entire Bible is an instructional book about how to avoid getting canceled by God, or stories about how God canceled people for not following His rules.


tbodillia

This is one of those "Tell me you've never read the bible without telling me you've never read the bible." God told Moses to kill all non believers. That sure as hell is cancelling people in the first damn book.


2020BillyJoel

"Don't eat from that tree" *Eats from that tree* "FUCKIN CANCELLED BITCH"


BTHex91

And did the factory reset on Sodom and Gomorrah


katersgonnakate5

We talking about the god who literally sends people to hell????


RavenDeadeye

Don't forget hell, the ultimate cancellation!
