As a Child I remember hearing the stories of Noahs Ark and how god saved Noah his family and two of every animal. It was taught in such a way that it made me believe that god was good and loving. Looking at it through my child eyes I could just see god telling Noah how the ark must be built. I could imagine god leading all the animals to the ark two by two. This all amazed me as a child. The stories of Sodom and Gomorrah and the like were all taught to me as a child in such a way that I thought these were stories of Aa loveing god.
Later in life I realized that nothing could be farther from the truth. Yes god did save Noah and his family and two of every kind of animal(supposedly). But they dont tell you ,or elaborate, that god killed millions of people even innocent children and animals. Not killed murdered.
When the thought struck me that this god might not be the loveing and careing being that everyone was talking about I started to read past the stories I had learned as a child. I wanted to find the god I was taught about in sunday school. He was nowhere to be found in the whole of the Bible. What I did find was a murderous vengeful jealous tyrant. I found a god who would issue commands in one chapter and the break them in the next.
I had a lot of questions after this. But the ones I wanted the answer to first was, how can people read this bible and ,when done think for an instant that this book was about a loving and careing god, and why would people keep worshiping this horrible being? After my studies I found it impossible to even thik that this being was worthy of worship.To me it is worse than having a church dedicated to Hitler.
I found my answer to these questions in my sunday school class. They started brainwashing me as a child by sugar coating stories of mass murder. I had wasted half of my life beliving that the stories like Noah and the like were good stories proving gods love for us.
I know many people who are still wasting their lives away nodding to everything the preacher says and never questioning the bible. Many are family members. I can only hope that some wil see the true light. The light of truth and of science.
