Mr. Richard Dawkins labeled the God of the Bible as “the most unpleasant character in all fiction.”
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” (Richard Dawkins, “The God Delusion,” Ch2, pp 31)
“Sadomasochistic” is the adjective form of sadism and masochism combined and is abbreviated S-M or S and M. As defined in the dictionary, the noun form, sadomasochism is “gratification, especially sexual, gained through inflicting or receiving pain.”So, is the God of the Bible sadomasochistic? If so, to whom and from whom?
This baseless and foolish accusation of Richard Dawkins is now reverberating in his person! To call God “sadomasochist” or even simply sadist or masochist is the height of unparalleled idiocy. First, he who doesn’t exist is deficient of any description. Second, it is utterly presumptuousness to describe what one denies! Not even the archenemy of God, satan, ever called God “sadist” or “sadomasochist”!
Satan feels the lust and lasciviousness of human flesh.
JAMES 3:16, 15
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
The Son of God, Jesus Christ, the true image and manifestation of God in the flesh, never had experienced sexual pleasure nor lasciviousness, more so, the pleasure of being a sadist.
I PETER 4:1
Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
I PETER 2:21-22
21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
How can a God with human flesh having controlled His desire and lust be called “sadist”, more so, the Father?
Apparently, Dawkins, whom I firmly believe has sexual lust and desire, know the pleasure of being a sadist! To pass on the stinking mud on your face to somebody else’s face is most certainly unfair!
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Dawkins and his ancestors are no exemptions from this verse! Mind you, even apes have sexual lust and desire but never sadists. (Heterosexual) sexual relationships among human beings is God’s way of procreation. It is always moderated by His teachings and prohibitions.
Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
His laws intend to produce God-fearing people.
And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one?That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
He commanded the male to love his wife, just as the wife should love her husband.
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
Far from being a sadist, a God-fearing man will not inflict harm on his sexual partner. Such a law cannot come from a God who authored everything that is good, just, desirable, and truth.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
But the thinking of Richard Dawkins is the opposite of all these goodness that God caused to be written in the Bible. God, is a spirit, without flesh. Man has a spirit and flesh.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.
All flesh have the lust of a flesh.
I CORINTHIANS 15:39
All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
God is a spirit that inhabits a person and teaches him to have control over his flesh.
THE ROMANS 8:13
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
To show the best of examples that God is not sadist or sadomasochist, we can consider His creation. His creation is the expression of His character and power.
THE ROMANS 1:19-20
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, beingunderstood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
A species of bee that God created proves that being sadist is out of God’s plan and wisdom. Here’s an excerpt from an article by Debbie Hadley on what she calls “the tragic plight of the male honey bee” after sex with the queen bee.
A martyr in a sexual relationship must not be called “sadist.” Humans (not atheists) are also proof that God is not a sadist.
The following is a song, “After the Lovin’” by Engelbert Humperdinck showcasing the loving man, acting accordingly as ordained by his Maker –
So I sing you to sleep
After the lovin’
I brush back the hair from your eyes.
And the love on your face
Is so real that it makes me want to cry.
And I know that my song
Isn’t sayin’ anything new.
Oh, but after the lovin’
I’m still in love with you.
There are so many good things that man can learn from his Creator but is impossible for atheists to ponder on them and understand. Normally, love is shown even after the sex act.
Below is the stupid reason of Dawkins calling God “sadist” or “sadomasochistic.”
“But now, the sado-masochism. God incarnated himself as a man,Jesus, in order that he should be tortured and executed in atonementfor the hereditary sin of Adam. Ever since Paul expoundedthis repellent doctrine, Jesus has been worshipped as the redeemerof all our sins. Not just the past sin of Adam: future sins as well,whether future people decided to commit them or not!I have described atonement, the central doctrine of Christianity,as vicious, sado-masochistic and repellent. We should also dismissit as barking mad, but for its ubiquitous familiarity which hasdulled our objectivity. If God wanted to forgive our sins, why notjust forgive them, without having himself tortured and executed inpayment – thereby, incidentally, condemning remote future generationsof Jews to pogroms and persecution as ‘Christ-killers’: didthat hereditary sin pass down in the semen too?”(Richard Dawkins, “The God Delusion,” pp 253).
Here is a confused pervert preaching the fruit of his imaginations in a language only those like him enjoy.
We will touch on these in the next issue of my blog.
God bless you.
