    Why does god put the needs of the few above the need of the many?

    Why does god put the needs of the few above the need of the many?

    That moral tenet is about the only objective moral tenet I know of that has not been shown to ever be subjective. Yahweh seems to be doing the wrong thing.

    We are told that most of us will end on the wide road to hell while the few end on the narrow path to heaven.

    It is demonstrable that nature creates for the best possible end.

    Why does Yahweh not follow the better rules he gave nature, and creates us for the worst possible end for the vast majority of us?

    A decent father would not have the morals or ethics Yahweh seems to follow.

    If true, then we end with more souls lost to Satan than souls saved by Yahweh. Even as scriptures say that Yahweh wills that all souls be saved.

    God not getting his will is not allowed. God must always come out ahead. Something is not right for god.

    Thoughts?

    God does come out ahead, but very few Christians believe it. When Jerome got the church to add 2 Peter and the book of Jude to the cannon, succeeded in getting the church to accept a latin translation of the bible based on the Masoretic text, along with sloppy translation of a few key words and passages, he gave the Roman converts to Christianity just what they wanted. A vindictive, wrathful judge to replace the Father image that was prevalent in the eastern churches. The Roman church used these tools to "grind lenses" for Christians to wear when they read or heard the scriptures, and these lenses blinded people to the fact that the bible, properly translated and interpreted, teaches that God will save each and every person who has ever lived, either in this age or one to come. Tertullian, Jerome, and Augustine were all highly intelligent people, but they were blinded in some ways by the arrogant spirit that pervaded the Roman culture. In Jerome's case, this cultural self-conceit may have provided him with enough justification to allow him to lie more than once. Maybe he thought these were "medicinal lies" that he could convince himself would lead to a good end for others. If that wasn't the case, they were self-serving and malignant. (I've often wondered if Jerome's name isn't based on the Hebrew letter yod combined with the word אֲרָם giving it the meaning of "he exalts" i.e. he exalts himself. Something Jerome had no problem demonstrating) It is ironic that the Catholic Encyclopedia states that the church's light never shone brighter than in the days of the Cappadocian church fathers, but they ignore the fact that unlike their hero Augustine, most of those Cappadocian church fathers were open universalists.

    Indeed.

    They could not envisage a god as foul as Yahweh or the notion that anyone would idolize such a satanic personality. Respect to Satan. She is first class as compared to Yahweh.

    Keep in mind the still Noble Lie, that fictitious god religions are worthy of us.

    Most were universalist back then because they did not read myths literally and the majority would have been labelled Gnostic.

    Most could not read.
