The Angel of the LORD is evil
Debate Rounds (4)
"Thou shalt not kill."
But the Angels are guilty of killing. And more than this, the Angels are guilty of killing innocent life.
This debate is about justification for killing innocent life. Shall the Angels of Heaven be justified for killing innocent life. If the Angels of Heaven are to be justified then here is Con's chance to show us how. As always my first choice resource in any debate is the Bible. But Con is welcome to use any means, and Good Luck Con.
The Angel of the LORD is evil
Jehovah of the Old Testament is in fact duplicitous
And Con says that Jehovah of the OT is duplicitous because He has a double standard. Here are the two standards-
1 It is against the law for some to take innocent life
2 It is not against the law for some others to take innocent life
It all depends on the ranking of the individual, (plus maybe some other stipulations).
Here is a side argument: God is a game warden who sells licenses to hunt human beings in season. The rules are simple:
1 The human(s) must be in season
2 The licenses are transferable
Therefore the Archangel can buy a license to personally hunt down and kill innocent humans like animals. Or Michael the Archangel can transfer title of the license to another person or persons in the event that Michael the Archangel is too busy to hunt down humans like animals. The temptation being that the person or persons who take title of the license from Michael the Archangel may get drunk on the blood of the innocent and over step the quota. In this even Michael the Archangel is granted another license to take the blood of the perpetrator.
Let's go to the point. Humans know that they are going die someday. that's basically part of nature and a fundamental truth. So basically humans are aware death but they don't know when or where. And God indeed manifested this truth. However, this is not killing because we humans know about this truth. Humans are aware about the law of nature. But then, some humans break the law of nature. This is done through homicide and suicide[murder].
If God is really evil, then HE would bring human soul to nothingness. But because of His love to Humans, He let us dwell in his home. Leaving with the Creator, humans has nothing to look for because that's the ultimate happiness.
The term "angel" has been expanded to include the definition: Messenger of God
With this definition in place if we allow the angels to be free from the LAW then it is easy for an entity such as the Roman Catholic Church to justify the actions of the California Roman Priests when they did what they did to the young people. The Roman Priests as messengers of God are above the law of California.
With the above in mind what is the defense to "Messengers of God Gone Wild"?
If the Angels are not bound by the law then the common people are not bound by the common law to respect the rights of the Angels. In other words the law of the fang and club is enforce-
An eye for an eye. And a tooth for a tooth. Nothing in the LAW is there to protect the angels from us.
Basically, Angels are not bound to the law of nature because they are not part of nature. So, angels are incapable of killing humans. Unless Angels become humans, then they are bound to the Laws of Nature and Moses.
I hope you understand that God and the angels who follow God's will are not evil.
When New Orleans was hit by the latest hurricane who was angry?
1) The Greek gods
2) The Angel of the LORD
Well? It was neither. The Greek gods are not real. And the Angel of the LORD is not real. These are gimmicks to explain what seemed to the ancient mind to be unexplainable. So here is the explanation-
The Greek gods and the Angel of the LORD are part of mankind. They are part of our memory now. But in ancient times they were part of our imagination. Either way they are part of mankind. If you will examine closely the history of education you will see that Christian higher education focused on ancient Greek philosophy/religion and ancient Israeli philosophy/religion. Christianity came to modern man just as much through ancient Greece as it did through ancient Israel.
The Old Testament is mythology just as much as the Greek. It is all mythology that explains the way the ancient human mind worked. In ancient Greece it came out one way. In ancient Israel it came out another. Both branches of ancient mythology has been repudiated.
God does not send the Angel of the LORD into battle. And the Greek gods don't get angry. It is because the Angel of the LORD never was and never will be. And the Greek gods never were and never will be.
So there can be only one purpose for the concept of 'Angel of the LORD'. It is to get us to accept a double standard. The double standard is-
Some people are above the LAW. While other people are not above the LAW. This is the most important concept in all of history.
