     The conception of a god ruler, regent of an earthly world, distinct and inferior to the Almighty and Absolute God, remounts to early Christianity.
     For
the Gnostic Christians, especially for Marcion, this demi-god was Jehovah (Yahweh), which corresponds to the Platonic Demiurge, also known as Cosmocrator or Ialdabaoth.
     Deciphering
this character with theological arguments is a fascinating challenge that arouses the interest of those who appreciate the profound and impartial study of the biblical mysteries.
 

 

Incoherent God???

 Not at all!!!

   

      In this material, presented at a book format, the seemingly dubious behavior of God is analyzed along different historical periods, before and after the advent of Jesus Christ.
     Through a comparative evaluation between the models of the Old and New Testament, we can conclude that there is no compatibility between the behaviors of Jehovah (JHVH), which in the past identified himself as “Lord” and God Father (ABBA), which has been presented to men through his Son, Jesus Christ.
     As shown in this book by several arguments, the suitability of God Father was preserved against the attacks of questioners, who are based on a supposed identification between God Father and the god of absurdities and inconsistencies - JHVH.
     In God the Father there is no evidence of any psychopathy, which is often seen in the attitudes of Jehovah, the tribal god of Israel.
     Those radical attitudes, such as the authorization for violent retaliations, punishment of adulterers and disobedient by stoning, strengthening of hosts, mass extermination of people including innocent children, curses on descendants, racial discrimination and many other aberrations abound in the law of Jehovah, which was transmitted through Moses.
     My goal in this study is to provide a coherent response to the questioners who criticize God the Father through every adversity that come upon mankind.
     So the idea that God is an old grumpy and angry man, who is controlling "puppets" in heaven, worried only on satisfying his own whims and desires, is totally wrong because it does not correspond to reality.
     Also, the image of a bipolar God, who sometimes acts favorably to men and sometimes acts unfavorably towards humanity, makes it seem as if God had an ambiguous personality, sometimes good and sometimes bad, depending on the  circumstances.
     This would be certainly the image that someone might have about God, if the Bible was restricted exclusively to the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament.
     This conflict between the behavior of the god presented by Moses and the behavior of the true God presented by Jesus led many Christians to other religions, philosophies, or even to atheism.
     Although the dualistic concepts presented in this analysis are not part of traditional Christian theology, similar ideas had been proposed previously in the philosophy of Plato, which admitted the existence of a Demiurge, creator of the material world.
     Later, such kinds of concepts were also defended by Marcion, Valentin and other precursors of the Gnostic Movement (Gnosticism) during the first centuries of Christianity, which associated this Demiurge to Yahweh.
     In the same way, during the middle Ages, some similar teachings were part of the doctrines adopted by the Cathars, also called Albigens. They called this architect Satanael, who usurped the place of God in the rule of governing the material world.
     Also, the Greek philosopher Carpocrates said in his doctrine that the world was made by angels.
     Yaldabaoth, Samael, Saklas and Cosmocrator were some of the names associated to this character, which interfered in the creation of the cosmos in a negative way.
     The main reason that led me to write a book on this matter is because of my dissatisfaction with the passivity of many traditional Christians who remain silent when they are faced with atheist opponents and agnostics, for they have lack of good arguments.
     Thus, the paradigms of religious people that are not reviewing their concepts and values ​​may be unmasked by the open approach of this study, free from tendentiousness or bias.
     In this way, a topic that has been abandoned for many years may be studied again with due seriousness.
     All those who are interested in studying the Bible through a free and unbiased way, can deepen on these unexplored and controversial issues.
     Throughout this book, I tried to show with logical and reasonable arguments, the distinction between that who is truly the God Father, and another being – Jehovah (JHVH), which aims to pass by the sovereign and only God.
     All the arguments used in this treaty were based solely on biblical text. The exegesis used in this analysis is perfectly accessible to anyone.
     In the underneath you may find the buttons to access the site IABR (Institute of Advanced Biblical Research) and a link to contact me by email. I will have great pleasure on receiving comments and questions from visitors of this site.

En este estudio se pretende dar respuesta a muchas preguntas acerca de la tergiversación de Dios, que me molestó durante mucho tiempo.
     Siempre me he preguntado por qué el dios del Antiguo Testamento perdía la paciencia y mataba a millones de personas. ¿Por qué estaba él tan lleno de rabia que se vio involucrado en guerras genocidas e incluso ordenó la ejecución de indefensos bebés y extranjeros?
     ¿Por qué el dios del Antiguo Testamento ordenó que se violaron a muchas mujeres embarazadas y los bebés arrancados de sus vientres fueron lanzados contra las rocas?
     ¿Cómo se podía conciliar el salvajismo con el Sermón de la Montaña, o la declaración de 1 Juan que dice "Dios es Amor", especialmente con la definición clara del amor en 1 Corintios 13:4-8?
     A mí me parece que el Dios del Antiguo Testamento es muy diferente del Padre Celestial que Jesús había revelado a sus seguidores. Por lo tanto, este libro pretende demostrar a través de la Biblia que en realidad son dos dioses completamente diferentes. Uno de ellos es el Padre Todopoderoso del cielo, que Jesús honró a lo largo de su ministerio entre los hombres. El otro es el arbitrario, violento, celoso, vengativo, inestable y enojado Javeh, el dios del Antiguo Testamento.
     Así que se trata de dos seres diferentes y un de estos seres es una farsa. El otro es el verdadero Dios, el Abba de Jesús Cristo.
     Este libro también puede abrir los ojos a todo el comportamiento incoherente de la deidad despótica del Antiguo Testamento, y dejarle finalmente libre de esa terrible estigma, para que se tenga una estrecha relación con nuestro Padre Celestial y su maravilloso Hijo - Jesús.
     Todas las personas que se dejan pensar seriamente acerca de estas cuestiones pueden tener ahora nuevos horizontes para su investigación. En lugar de tratar de hacer caso omiso de sus preocupaciones con estos problemas, lea este libro y tendrá muchas de sus preguntas respondidas en su mente y corazón, una vez por todas.

     Este estudo pretende
responder a muitas perguntas sobre a representação errada de Deus, que me incomodou por muito tempo.
     Eu sempre me perguntei por que o Deus do Antigo Testamento, perdeu a paciência e matou milhões de pessoas. Por que ele estava tão cheio de raiva que ele se envolveu em guerras genocidas e até mesmo ordenou a execução de indefesos bebês, crianças e pessoas estrangeiras?
     Por que o deus do Velho Testamento ordenou inúmeras mulheres grávidas, para serem estupradas e seus bebês arrancados de seus ventres foram jogados contra as pedras?
     Como eu poderia conciliar tal selvageria com o Sermão da Montanha, ou com a declaração em 1 João que "Deus é Amor", especialmente com a definição clara do amor em 1 Coríntios 13:4-8?
     Parece-me que o deus do Antigo Testamento é completamente diferente do Pai Celestial que Jesus apresentou e revelou aos seus seguidores.
     Assim, este livro pretende provar através da Bíblia que eles na verdade são dois deuses totalmente diferentes. Um deles é o Pai Todo-Poderoso Celestial que Jesus honrou ao longo de todo o seu ministério entre os homens. O outro é o arbitrário, violento, ciumento, vingativo, instável e colérico - Javé - o deus do Antigo Testamento.
     Eles são dois seres diferentes e um desses seres é uma farsa. O outro é o Verdadeiro Deus, o Abba de Jesus Cristo.
     Este livro também pode abrir os olhos para todo o comportamento terrível, incoerente, e despótico da divindade do Antigo Testamento, e deixá-lo finalmente livre desse estigma terrível para que você possa abraçar plenamente o Pai Celestial maravilhoso de Jesus.
     Todas as pessoas que se permitem pensar seriamente sobre essas questões podem ter novos horizontes para suas pesquisas. Em vez de tentar ignorar as suas dúvidas com essas questões, leia este livro e você terá muitas de suas perguntas respondidas e o assunto resolvido em sua mente e coração, de uma vez
por todas.
