Any other positive adjective you would like to attach to God as well.
Positive adjective examples:
Don't have to prove something to have a right to believe it. You don't have to do shit so why post here all day shitting on others. Oh yeah, atheism.
Freedom hating bigots deserve to loose their freedom.
Sine we know you are a hate filled POS you are a liar. You posts shit is just shit.
An ancient Hebrew might disagree, although he would be careful to do so in a way that did risk offending yhwh!
The relatiuonship between ANE tribes and their gods was that those 'positive adjectives' applied as long as the god was pleased, but if they were displeased those gods turned extremely negative!
What yhwh demanded most was obedience and what made him angry was worshipping any of the other gods. Then the adjectives 'jealous', 'vengeful', 'wrathful' would apply!Other religionsare explicily dualistic,, with one god having 'postive' attributes and the other god the negative ones. Such dulaism seems natural to human minds, and it appears in folk-Christianity as the enmity between God and Satan.
It is not an assumption that God is good, there is no good without God. Of course God is good.
I really hope I've been posting long enough for people to know that I think gods are purely imaginary. If it seemed was I talking of how the gods are, I am really talking about how they are imagined to be.
The only adjective I think really applies to gods is 'non-existent', but that seemed a boring and obvious thing to say.
How?The Truth is good.
There can be nothing good without God.
God is not contingent on anything, so to say that God requires there to be any thing would be a fallacy.
How do we understand morality? To love God with an undefiled intellect.
If Christianity wasn't undermine-able by simply asking questions then you would be able to answer what I said. So you aren't going to answer my questions on top of that you are pretty much saying you have to be indoctrinated into Christianity in order to understand what is "good" and "truth".Your education was specifically engineered to undermine Christianity.
That being the case, you will not understand me unless you show me some charity. Please grant me this patience.
God is what makes something good.
God is good, and so what is good to us is abiding in God.
Because The Ultimate Reality is God, and good is that which is true and right.
This is part of what I mean by you being educated in such a way as to undermine Christianity. It is not that I am indoctrinated. It is really quite the opposite. The people who worked out your education despise Christianity, so they are indoctrinating the population with newspeak specifically designed to make what we believe unintelligible.
The example I point out the most is God, which actually means "The Ultimate reality". How many atheists accept this as being what the word means? Obviously if they knew this and accepted this, they wouldn't be atheists.
Another example here is "good". To most people, good is what seems nice, beneficial, or whatever aligns with some arbitrary sense of aesthetics. That is not how we understand good. Even Socrates was closer than those today when he said 'There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.'.
The point is that Truth is what determines good. Without Truth, there is no good. That being the case, it follows quite naturally that being good is about abiding in The Truth.
