Atheists accuse humans of creating gods in our own image. Assuming they're correct, we see that this is nowhere more true than in the atheist community itself.
“[The Christian God is] “Arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it, a petty, unjust, unforgiving control freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynist, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
We are usually repelled by the characteristics we think we see in others that we dimly recognize in ourselves. This is Richard Dawkins' perspective of Creator God.
Creator God reveals Himself to us.
Through the Bible He describes Himself.
Through Creation we can intuit some of His attributes.
Through Jesus the Christ, Creator God displays His character in as clear a manner as is possible.
- He displays power over nature
- He displays power over sickness
- He displays power over death
- He displays power over sin
- He displays love and mercy and patience and forgiveness
If you want to know what your Creator is like, learn about Jesus who said, “If you have seen Me, you have seen Creator God,” and “I and Creator God are one and the same.”
All of this goes over the heads of atheists. The laziest of the bunch just say, “Jesus never existed,” and believe, they really believe that they've solved their issue of accountability before God.
Atheists do in fact invent god's in their own image. The gods that atheists invent are always virtually powerless, impotent and incapable of love. They are in fact gods that are unworthy of our worship.
Thankfully at this time of year we celebrate the arrival on earth of our Lord, our Saviour, our Creator. He came not to condemn us but to show us the way Home.
Don't be such a fool that you turn away from the offer of an eternity.
Happy Holy Days
