Biblical Concept of God and Satan - By Tiger Hossaam


Glorifying Satan And Belittling God in a BOOK supposedly inspired and revealed by God. 

by Tiger Hossaam


If God did inspire the different authors of the Bible, why does it contain verses that belittle Him? Why does it recognise Satan as “the ruler” and even “god of this world”? If the Bible confuses you, if you do not know who is behind it; then read this paper very carefully. Analyse the following examples of the Biblical verses that belittle God and glorify satan. See if you can refute them. If you remain confused, be rational to accept the truth. Let not your emotions and pride overrule you. Accept that God is not the author of the Bible. The book itself says that God is not the author of confusion but of peace (1 Corinthians 14:33).
Examples of the Biblical Verses that Belittle God
Would you agree with the Bible when it says. “The Lord is man of war; the Lord is His name” (Exodus 15:3)? Is it not a blasphemy to say that God is a man, even a man of war?
Is there man a superior than God? Why does the Bible describe God to be merely prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6); whereas, Melchizedek as the King of Peace (Hebrew 7:2)? Does not God deserve the grand title, the King of Peace?
God is not omniscient. How come the Bible portrays God’s limited knowledge of His creatures? (Genesis 3:8-13; Job 1:7) Would you believe that God did not even know Satan, of where he came from? (Job 1:7).
God does not know what is right (Job 42:7-8). So, God needs to be told what is right as narrated in the Book of Job.
 Are the verses that portray God created lies (e.g. 1 Kings 22:22-23; Judges 9:23) divinely inspired?
Does not the Bible belittle God when it says that He is the husband of a barren woman? To quote: “For your Maker is your Husband, the LORD of hosts is His name.” (Isaiah 54:1,5) Is God a man that the Bible associates a partner to Him? Is he not Almighty and Self-Sufficient or the only One free of needs?
The Bible narrates instances that depict God was not omnipresent at all times (Genesis 3:8; Genesis 11:5).
God can be tempted as shown in the following verses: “Why do you tempt the Lord?” (Exodus 17:2) “You shall not tempt the Lord your God as you tempted Him in Massah.” (Deuteronomy 6:16)
God is not omnipotent. He is powerless to help His creatures (Judges 1:19). Would you believe that a man had robbed God (Malachi 3:8-9)?
He is also weak. He “Wearied” (Isaih 43:24) and “rested” (Genesis 2:2; Exodus 24:16).
Does God Requires Rest ? This is utter Blasphemy in the name of God
God is not the only saviour. Did not God say, “Besides me there is no saviour” (Isaiah 43:10-12)? How come the Bible mentions of “saviours” who were to judge…. (Obadiah 1:21).
God made foolishness. Paul said that God made foolish the wisdom of this world and that God is pleased with the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe (1 Corinthians 1-20-21).
The Law of the Lord made nothing perfect: Would you believe Paul when he said that the law made nothing perfect (Hebrews 7:18-19).
God’s commandments are not pure. How true that God said (or “inspired”) Hosea to take a wife of harlotry and children of harlotry (Hosea 1:2)? Did he really say to Hosea to go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover and is committing adultery (Hosea 3:1).
God repents. He was “sorry that He had made man on the Earth” (Genesis 6:6-7).
Is this a God that we must Worship ? Does God need to repent at the sight of his creation ? Did he not know that Man will do all sorts of sin ? If he did not knew this before Creating Humankind then surely he is    not GOD
Holiness does not pertain to God alone: The Bible mentions of: holy people (Isaiah 63:18), a holy nation (Exodus 19:6), the holy seed (Psalm 86:2). holy prophets (Luke 1:70) and some servants of God as holy (Leviticus 11:44; Psalm).
God is angry forever. Bible asks: “How long Lord will you be angry forever? Will your jealousy burn like fire” (Psalm 79:5).

God is not only jealous but his name is Jealous
. Did God really say that He was jealous God (Exodus 20:5)? Does not the Bible belittle God when it says that God’s name is Jealous (Exodus 34:14). Is He not worthy of all praise?
God is not a rock. The Bible says, “who is a rock, except our God?” (2 Samuel 22:32) it contradicts the statement: “To whom then will you like God? Or what likeness will you compare Him?” (Isaiah 40:18).
Man blesses God (Psalm 34:1;103:1). David said, “I will bless the Lord at all times.” (Psalm 34:1) Does this mean that God is dependent on man?
God is visible. There were men who had seen God (Genesis 26:2; 32:30; 35:9, Exodus 24:9-10; 33:11; Numbers 12:6-8; Job 42:5; Amos 9:1).
God is changeable. The Bible narrates verses that show His changeable actions (Exodus 33:1,3, 14,17; Samuel 2:30-31; Jonah 3:10).
God’s work is far from perfect. It questions man’s purity, being God’s creation (Job 15:14-26).
God is not oft-forgiving. He does not forgive sins of those whose hands are full of blood no matter how many prayers they make (Isaiah 1:15). What if their prayers are sincere, showing their true repentance? Would not God forgive them? If the sinners will believe in this verse, do you think they will receive admonition? Or you will expect them, being of little faith, instead to become atheists?
God is not the only judge of all mankind. The Bible says, “For the father judges no one, but has committed all judgement to the Son” (John 5:22). Even Paul claimed that he judged (1 Corinthians 5:1-3; 1 Corinthians 5:12). He also said: “We shall judge angels. How much more on things that pertain to this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:2-3).
How come the Bible talks of “the fear of the LORD” (Psalm 19:9; 111:10; Isaiah 63:17), “the foolishness and “weakness of God” (1 Corinthians 1:25) Is He not the Almighty?
God was a tribal King. He was the King of Israel (Isaiah 44:6; Micah 5:2).
If God were the King of Israel (Isaiah 44:6; Micah 5:2), then Satan must be superior to God. The Bible perceives Satan as the ruler of this world (John 14:30; 16:11).
The Bible associates partner to God. It says that Jesus is equal with God” (Philippians 2:8). It confuses Christians to believe him as “the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16,18) and “one” in essence and in nature with God (John 14:6-7). In short, Jesus was “God” (Romans 9:5). If Jesus were God, then God was not at all almighty, omnipotent and eternal. The Bible narrates that Jesus was sorrowful and deeply distressed. His soul was exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. So, he fell on his face, and prayed (Matthew 26:37-39; Mark 14:33-36). The high priest tore his clothes. They all condemned him to be worthy of death. Then some began to spit on him, and blindfolded him, they struck him on the face (Luke 22:63, 64). He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. Jesus wept (John 11:33,35). He suffered outside the gate (Hebrews 13:12). They crucified him (John 19:18) until he yielded up his spirit (Matthew 27:50), breathed his last (Luke 23:46) and “died” (Romans 5:6).
If Jesus were “God”, then God was a racial God. The Bible describes Jesus as the Lion of the tribe of Juda (Revelation 5:5). It means that he was a tribal Jew. He came for the Jews only (Matthew 15:24). And he practised racial discrimination. He commanded his disciples to go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel and told them not to go to the way of Gentiles and a city of the Samaritans (Matthew 10:5-6).
If “God” were a racial God, the God of Israel (also see Jeremiah 7:3), then Satan has dominion over Him. Would you believe, “there is no God in the entire earth, except in Israel” (2 Kings 5:15)? How come the Bible says, “Satan is the god of this evil world” (2 Corinthians 4:4)?
Examples of the Biblical Verses that Glorify Satan
Satan is the prince of the world. The living New Testament says that Satan is the prince of this world who shall be cast out (John 12:31). The Amplified version even describes Satan as “the ruler (evil generous, prince) of this world” (John 12:31).
Satan is the ruler of this world. He is the ruler of this world who is Judged. The King James says that the ruler of this world is coming (John 14:30). The Amplified version specifies that the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world who is coming is Satan (John 14:30,31). The same version of the Bible stresses that Satan is the ruler of this world (John 16:11). He is the ruler of this world who is judged (John 16:11) according to the other versions (i.e. King James, Living New Testaments, and the Revised Standard).
Satan is the god of this evil world. The Living New Testament even recognizes that Satan is the god of this evil world (2 Corinthians 4:4).
Belittling God: The King James states that the god of this age has blinded those who do not believe (4 Corinthians 4:4).
Satan is imbued with all power. The King James writes: “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders” (2 Thessalonians 2:9).
The devil had the power of death. All the popular versions of the Bible, (i.e. King James, Amplified, Living New Testament and the Revised Standard) agree that the devil had the power of death (Hebrews 2:14).
The whole world is under the power of the evil one. The King James, Amplified and Revised Standard concur that the whole world is under the power of the evil one (1 John 5:19). The Living New Testament says that all the rest of the world around us is under Satan’s power and control (1 John 5:19).
With all the descriptions given contrary to God’s divine attributes would you then say that the Bible is God’s Word? Would you agree with the Bible when it says that Satan is the ruler and god of this world? Would you believe that the whole world is under the power of the evil one, Satan? Is Satan imbued with power, including the power of death? How true is it that God is kind to the devil (Luke 6:35)? Does the evil one deserves God’s kindness when he is in fact, rebellious to God? Would you not question God’s justice to punish the wicked, if God were kind to the devil? Does it not imply that people have to also show kindness to the evil one instead of fighting or resisting him? If all people will adhere to this verse, do you think there will be peace and order in the world ? Is it not that the evil does not only deceive mankind but also creates mischiefs to humanity?
Who is behind the Biblical verses that belittle God and glorify Satan on the other hand? Will you attribute them to God? To attribute them to God is  sheer blasphemy
