Sadistic punishments in the Quran intended to make it an offense to Islam for unbelievers in the Hereafter:
"The founder of the balance that makes these penalties is to be kind and generous?"
He sounds about as monstrous as Jehovah.
Jehovah created mankind with original sin. Then he killed almost everyone for sinning. Next he impregnated a young virgin girl with himself so that he could be born. Then he sacrificed himself to himself so that if we believed in him he would take away the original sin that he created us in in the first place. Makes perfect sense. Now we can be with him forever!
