• You can't get more totalitarian than Jehovah

    Psalm 135:5-6: "For I know that the LORD is great and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps." You can't get much more sovereign than that. He is absolutely free, sovereign, and autonomous. Isaiah 14:27: "For the Lord of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?" Nobody! Isaiah 43:13: "Even from eternity I am He, and there is none who can deliver out of My hand; I act and who can reverse it?” Nobody! Daniel 4:35: "All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, but He does according to His will in the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of earth; and no one can ward off His hand or say to Him, ‘What have You done?’" Proverbs 16:9: "The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." Proverbs 16:33: "The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord."

  • Absolutely

    He rules with an iron fist crushing all who oppose him. By scripture Jehovah orders the deaths of thousands will condemn billions to eternal torment all in the name of total control somehow offset by being the only being to not be corrupted by absolute power. This is why religious governments tend to be totalitarian in nature.

  • Yes he is.

    Jehovah is totalitarian in the extreme. According to the Bible he issued commands, constantly tested the faith of followers, and stated that he was jealous of the worship of other gods. Jehovah smote his own followers when they failed to follow his commandments and sent plagues to Egypt when the Pharaoh would not listen to Moses.

  • Yes

    Well let's see. The god of the Bible demands absolute obedience, respect, and love. He has committed mass murder on multiple occasions in the Bible. Most of the ten commandments are more concerned about respecting god instead of treating other humans well. He's the absolute definition of totalitarianism and a disgrace to reason.

  • Yes He Is

    The god of the Judeo-Christian bible is a pretty totalitarian lord. He demands love and praise, and if he doesn't get it, you are basically at risk for death and destruction. He is an all-knowing, all-powerful god who actually keeps tabs on everyone. And you have no hope of escaping him, even in death.

  • Unquestionably, he is.

    Anyone who has read the Bible at any length can tell you exactly the extent of the totalitarian ways attributed to Jehovah (Yahweh). He is good, but demands the slaughter of entire civilizations. He loves you, so you'd better love him. If you don't, he'll have to kill you. The god of the Bible is a frightening god indeed.
