The word ‘God’ has several meanings but it is commonly just a term used to describe ones own thoughts, feelings and desires to make them seem more justifiable or legitimate by attributing them to God’s will or God talking to you.
If someone hates someone and wants to kill them and their family and their tribe and their people, it sounds much better to say that ‘God told you to do it’ for then one can then claim that you are a spiritual and holy person selflessly following the will of God. Rather than being known as a psychopathic mass murderer.
It is also very useful when one is wanting to rally ones troops for battle to be able to say that God is on your side and will give you victory and that if one fights bravely enough one will be awarded a place in heaven with the other great immortal fighters. One sees this scenario repeated many times in the scriptures.
The word ‘God’ is also a term for the ‘goading’ influence of one’s conscience and lusts and desires. This is why the the word ‘goad’ is a variant spelling of the word ‘God’.
‘Goad’ is also a variant spelling of the word ‘goat’ and the experience of feeling ‘horny’, or for feelings of sexual desires and arousal that were also attributed to God’s will. This is why Christianity and Judaism is based on the idea of sacrificing the goat and why Jesus is called the scapegoat and the sacrificial lamb.
Also Jesus is said to be the ‘Savior’ because it is the churches euphemistic way of saying that he was a ‘Satyr’, ‘Set’, Soter’, ‘Saturn’ or ‘Satan’. All these names mean ‘one who sows’, but which meant ‘with semen’. It wasn’t referring to tomatoes, or cucumbers, or other seeds, as Christianity tries to pretend today.
These names are derived from the Greek ‘Soter’ meaning ‘to sow ones seeds’.The word ‘sow’ being the root of the word ‘Savior’. The above painting called ‘Satyr and Nymph’ by Konstantin Makovsky, 1863. It depicts the other side of Jesus that Christianity tries to keep hidden.
