Oddly enough, I do.
The Old Testament to me is one of the attempts to understand God before Christ.
It is on the same level as the Avesta of the Zoroastrians. It is on the same level as my ancestors’ One-Eyed God, the Father God Odin who sought knowledge and simple truth instead of a childish Oriental Wisdom.
I have read the Old Testament, and I honor it.
One thing that really impresses me about the Old Testament is the fact that those who wrote it are absolutely unidentifiable, as Mark Twain pointed out. There is no ego in it. They speak of Jehovah, they speak of prophets, but they never speak of themselves. Their only interest is the truth as they see it.
The Old Testament is **A** version of the truth before Jesus gave us a little glimpse of the Father.
If you think the Old Testament is **THE** exclusive Word of God, then I am denigrating it.
But if you understand that, to me, there is only one Testament, and that is only a partial one, you can see why I resent those who put the Old Testament down for its imperfections. I am a Bible Belter, and I respect the Bible.
The Old Testament is the book I was raised on. I honor it, I do not like it to be insulted. Nonetheless, the Old Testament is not THE Revelation.
I am 99% atheist. But the mustard seed of my faith is in Jesus.
There is only one simple truth, the facts for which my Father God Odin suffered on the world tree Yggsdradil.
That is myth but it is the myth our lives are now based on. It tells us how the real fathers of our civilization thought.
Also, if there is a Final Revelation, there is only one: The one for which Jesus Christ died on the cross.
But if you believe in the the one Revelation, don’t try to drag the whole Middle East in with it.
Don quoted me as saying that a blond girl and a black guy kissing in public was as disgusting as two guys kissing in public. Don then said he hated to trump me, but to him there was no comparison. The two guys kissing in public was nothing in comparison.
Don said that, to him, race trumps everything.
I have to cater to people who worry that homosexuality violates the Book of Jeremiah 4.225 verse fourteen point two because they are sort of on our side. They own God and I am just a human.
Their only conscience is in their version of the Bible.
I humor them because I am fighting the fight that I must fight, the fight for the Golden Rule, the fight for a world in which my race survives. No other world is worth living in. There is no other world that a human being should be born into. Any world in which whites do not exist is a planet where so-called humans are a stagnate group, a higher sort of ant.
But these higher ants have feelings. They suffer, they die, they rot.
I do not like suffering.
Here I stand.
