Is God competent or incompetent?

 

We are told in scriptures that evil begets evil and good begets good. God, as our creator, according to scriptures, creates us all as sinners, which many see as evil.

 

God can thus be seen and judged as being the original sinner since the fruits of his labor (us) went bad or are born bad.  A tree is known by its fruits.  What else could come from a sinner tree but sin?

 

I give God a fail on competence for the following reasons.

God created heaven that produced Satan. Fail.

God created Eden which produced Original Sin. Fail.

God had to reboot creation with Noah’s flood. Fail.

God sent his son to forgive mankind instead of stepping up himself. Fail, for moral reasons.

God also had to create hell for his rejects which scriptures say will be the vast majority of us. Fail.

 

Jesus said we would know his people by their works and deeds and if we believe that, then the Christian God would obviously be rejected by Jesus and agree with my fail judgement.

 

Do you agree?

Re-evaluate your concept of what you think God is.  Your comment seems to attribute human characteristics to a Divinity that most likely is not a singular being. The universe is self conscious , an entanglement of the life phenomenon and this probably is what we call God.

If you do not believe in God, then perhaps you believe in evolution with much trial and error, where the vast majority of random mutations fail to be passed on to following generations. If there is no hell, then perhaps all life on the earth is destined to be burned up when the Sun goes red giant.

John beheld in the Revelation a new heaven and a new earth with no sea. I believe God is competent, because if you do not believe in a competent God, then you do not believe in an almighty or omnipotent Creator. The Big Bang theory and all that? Who then created the Universe if God is incompetent? God's creation is so vast that our Earth is but a tiny speck of dust on that scale.

All descriptions of God are speculative nonsense.

Only those with the faith of fools will think otherwise.

If you wish to speak of reality and not your imaginary idiocies, I am here for you.

What we believe is of no consequence. Believing the world is flat changes not a thing. Belief only has power over gullible people. What we do not know we should explore to understand. Faith in a belief is imprisonment of mind. The truth is out there for those who seek. We are figments of our own imagination fabricated by three pounds of  neurons and nothing to the dynamics of cosmology.

I agree with most of what you put but not your first sentence.

Many Christians and Muslims, for instance, believe that being gay is evil and that women are less than men.

That thinking has produced many victims of homophobia and misogyny.

If you believe that what is believed has no consequences for others, you are quite wrong.

Ask any gays or women in your family if they have your view and you will get the victims POV.

It is not a belief but the believer that perpetrates offensive consequences.

True, but he is acting on his belief and ideology.

You cannot separate the perpetrator from the foolish belief in his head that is making him act in a criminal way.

If you do good, you are motivated by your beliefs. If you do evil, you are motivated by your beliefs.

God - as painted by traditional Christianity, is certainly incompetent - because he contradicts himself.  In other words, he breaks his own moral code (eternal hell doctrine, double predestination to name a few).

Now this begs the question, "Why should anyone worship such a being?".

I agree with your view and do not know why Christians put their genocidal god ahead of their moral sense.

Religions are there to assuage our insecurity and tribal sense.

Morality does not seem to guide those poor insecure souls.
