Is a Sin Always Immoral? 

The point I like to make is that God punishes (eternal torture) for many sins which are not even immoral or criminal.  Most sins are actually just things God doesn’t like (arguably not immoral), yet He is prepared to punish anyone for committing them.  My go to example sin is non-belief in God, or atheism.  Yes, simple, non-criminal, non-immoral, justified non-belief is enough to get you tossed into hellfire forever.  An unwarranted punishment by any standard.  Actually, punishment of any kind for most of the sins God dislikes is a GROSS overstep of ANY authority.  The threat of such unwarranted punishment is blatantly immoral, criminal, tyrannical coercion.  It is the Mob Boss maiming you for not wanting to pay his “protection” fee.  The believer is conditioned to argue that nonbelievers are choosing hell, but this equates to the Mob Boss victim choosing to make the Boss punish unjustly.  Yes, the Mob Boss (God) is the one acting unjustly and immorally.  Nobody is making him punish unjustly except God himself.  And no Mr believer, God’s supposed authority as a powerful creator doesn’t override any such immorality… unjust punishment is unjust punishment.  Yes, your God is an immoral monster and you the blind believer excuse his actions.

Below are about one quarter of the bible sins listed  on amazingbible.org.  I used the 1st page to make a point.  I went through and noted any sin that truly seems immoral and potentially immoral, as well as those that didn’t.  (Immoral meaning: outside society’s standards of acceptable, honest behavior, which may cause harm to others.)  You might disagree with some, but only about 25% of what God tortures for could arguably warrant any punishment at all.  The fact that they are ALL punishable by a higher power shows without a doubt that God is a tyrannical dictator. (Tyrannical:  unjustly cruel, harsh, or severe; arbitrary or oppressive; despotic)  There really is no doubt.

To use this realization further, A tyrant is anything but all loving (or even a little loving) and this contradiction in the biblical God proves that this God can’t exist as claimed.  Atheism is the justified position already, but absurdities like this make it that much easier to see.

One thought on “Is a Sin Always Immoral? 

  1. God, our Creator, is a spirit, infinitely perfect. God is all-good, perfectly just, and infinitely merciful. We owe our obedience to God because He is Love. True authority comes from love. Love is the highest good. Therefore, any action devoid of love for God, for oneself, or for one’s neighbor, is immoral. To love requires acting in accordance with truth and with natural law. Loving God means that we strive to be holy as He is holy. Therefore, degrading, debasing, or harming ourselves or others physically or spiritually is sinful and morally wrong.

    God does not want anyone to go to hell. Hell was created for the fallen angels who rebelled against God. Angels, unlike humans, are not capable of repentance; their decision was final and irrevocable. God gave us the gift of free will because he loves us perfectly and wants to be in a voluntary communion of love with Him for eternity. God is a person with free will. In this way, we are made in God’s image. Without free will, we would be nothing more than slaves and would be incapable of loving anyone or anything. Without love, there is no life. When our first parents chose foolishly to believe Satan’s lie that God was not all-good and disobeyed God, sin entered the world. Sin corrupted the world and all of mankind. Sin is ultimately the is the reason that the world is full of suffering and death. God, in his great love, promised Eve that one of her descendants would conquer the Evil One and redeem the world from the bondage of sin. In the fullness of time, God, who is a holy Trinity–an eternal communion of love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit– sent His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to become man and to offer Himself as a sacrifice for our sins. As God, Jesus’ sacrifice was of infinite value, and as man, the merits of His sacrifice were credited to us for our salvation.

    The sin that prevents anyone from coming to believe in Jesus Christ is the sin of PRIDE. This is the principal sin of the devil. The only way to receive the gift of faith is to humble oneself in truth, realizing your nothingness before Almighty God, your Father. We are made to love, worship, give thanks, praise, and adore God, and to be loved and adopted as His redeemed and holy children to whom He gives the gift of eternal life.
