Fundamental Question: How is Christianity not polytheism?

133 posts in this topic

Mainstream Christianity believes that Satan is an actual entity with powers to transform himself, travel instantly all over the world, live in an unearthly place, and have the ability to influence if not completely take over human consciousness.

Call it what you will, but Satan is a god, much like the gods of Roman and Greek times. He may not be omnipotent and all powerful, none of the Roman gods were either. But clearly he possesses powers of a godly nature. The same can be said for Demons and even Angels. All Gods, with their terminology changed out of convenience.

I'm not saying polytheism is a bad thing or a good thing, makes no difference to me. But why not call it what it is?

Christianity also defines God as being everything (at least in some part) and simultaneously superior to everything.

Just to expand your parameters a bit...;)

I thought Satan was an angel that had been banished from heaven.

Of course there is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

They say its 3 in 1 but it sounds like 3 to me.

Not to mention the fact that the best verses that support the trinity were added to the Bible in the 9th century or something like that.

    • I am a 3 percenter. I am white, married, no children, no debt. I have a pension for the rest of my life, and we have a couple retirement accounts to also use at some point. I own the home I live in, I built and own 50% of the house my in-laws live in and we have our place in Mexico.  If you think for one fugging second that anything Trump does effects my life from one day to the next, you are sadly mistaken.  That being said, I'm also a compassionate human being who cares about the quality of life for other human beings. I've been places and seen both the best and worst of how people live all over the world. The GOP has proven time and again over the past 40 years they couldn't give a sh!t less about blue collar, middle America. The working class for the GOP are nothing but the mules who lug their riches to the bank. The backs of the working class bore not only the labor that made assholes like Trump rich, but they are also the backs the GOP stand on to keep their feet from touching the bullsh!t they spew. While racism has always had its place in politics, the GOP has become very overt in their racism and have added that to the mix as well.  Sad part is, many naive, uneducated people who live in this country and who have been the forced labor in the GOP camp for the last 40 years are supporting such a regime. Why? Because they have no nuance for anything but the very basic and will believe the simpleton idea of "building a wall" before they'll try to educate themselves and become literate with the entire immigration reform issue. They'll buy into the anti-Muslim rhetoric and believe they are the terrorists despite the fact they should more afraid of the teenage white kid down the street who spends most of his time playing video games in the basement and reads Nazi blogs on his lunch hour in the high school cafeteria.      
    • @Mr. Scot   I am happy for the good, and sad for the bad, but, I do know you will do alright. Just keep your eye on the prize, and all will be well. You may be losing this family, so you've got that going for you.   Keep Pounding my friend. Keep Pounding.
