A Splash of Reason From God Himself
Update posted on Facebook this past Saturday by the creator of Mr. Deity, Brian Dalton:
Why I do Mr. Deity…
The following is an email I received this morning (I get stuff like this frequently) from someone who had seen the show. This is followed by my response…
All of us have sinned against our Creator. We have offended a Holy and Righteous God. We ALL rightfully deserve hell. God made Himself a man, in the person of His Son Jesus Christ, and took the punishment for OUR sins upon Himself on a cross. The only way we can be made right with God, and in turn be with Him for Eternity is through Christ.
“Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:18)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
And my reply…
Well, first of all, I don’t believe we all rightfully deserve to be tortured for eternity, and the fact that you have been brainwashed to think we do is one of the most frightening things in the world to me. It is truly sick, and the God you believe in is one of the most sadistic beings in all of literature.
Why do you think a just and loving God would create creatures so beneath him, and then expect them to live up to his standards? And why would a just and loving God punish them with eternal torment if they didn’t? Would you do that to your children?
When God came down here to live a sinless life, he had to be “fully human AND fully God.” None of us are afforded that combo, and yet, you believe this just being will torture us for all eternity for not living up to his standards when He is the being who made us this way.
You are sick, and this is one of the most disgusting ideas in the history of ideas. No wonder people who believe as you do have been able to do the most awful things to each other.
Please stop and reconsider your thinking. This is not love. This is demonic if anything is.
Enjoy the show!
If we are ever going to live in a peaceful world, this idea must be stamped out and thrown into the recycle bin of history. It is evil. Pure, unadulterated evil. And I hope you will do whatever you can to fight it with me.
I’m sorry for being so dramatic, but I am disgusted beyond belief right now. To think that there are 2 billion people on this planet who think this is love, gives me the chills. Help me! Help me! Help me!
