God as the Divine Scapegoat

God Scapegoat

God is a divine scapegoat, allowing us to blame Him for our violence, so that He can carry our violence away and rescue us from violence. Without the scapegoat mechanism, human culture would collapse upon itself in a never-ending cycle of progressive violence.

Is God a murderer?

is God a murderer?

The devil is a murderer and a liar, and one of his primary lies is to tell us that God is a murderer. The devil himself is largely responsible for much of the violence that happens in the world, and he loves nothing more than to carry out that violence and then frame God for it.
