        The only real answer to any question that starts with "Why does God" is: we don't know.

          that would be the answer if the whole story was made up by not too intelligent shepherds.

      I finished the book of Job. It ends like this:
      >God: Haha, just a prank bro. I killed your family but now I allow you to have a new family. You see this, Satan? I won the bet!

        How can this be considered the same god as the god in the new testiment? Making bets with the devil?

          Satan in this story isn't the devil. In general the notion of Satan has been overloaded with so many mythological crap from different cultures that it's often hard to distinguish. Also the book of Job is kinda special. It doesn't fit neither into the old nor the new testament. The basic story is much older than the old testament, and the prologue about the bet was added much later.

            Those words mean the same thing. It says ha-satan in the hebrew bible and is translated as diabolos in the septuagint. You can't pretend that the devil in the new testament wasn't written as the same character as this.

            You got to love it when christians pretend to be all academic and nonreligious to explain errors in their scripture

          When you read Ezekiel you see that God considers Job, Daniel and Noah 3 of the most righteous men who ever lived. Perhaps even the most righteous ones. Imagine the crown that will be put on Job's head in the day of judgement, you could probably see the sinning of its colorful splendor from a few miles away. And the glory and kingdom and the paradise that will be given to him. There is not a righteous man who gets saved on judgement day who will not go bow down and pay homage to Job.

            So in a israeli context does righteousness just mean submission to Yahweh?

            Doing what is right in his eyes. Fearing God enough to never dare do any evil or injustice in his sight, no matter how much you can benefit from it. And even when your life is turn upside own you still not curse him or hate him and still retain your integrity before him.

            You got that twisted around in that lil reptile brain of yours: right IS might; the greatest source of morality is the most unassailably puissant entity there is, which is why the Devil consistently embarrasses himself in foolish wagers and disposable ignorant pawns such as yourself.

            The entire book of Job is just an elaborate fairy tale made so that people shut the frick up and stop complaining and questioning the existence of God.

            >just an elaborate fairy tale
            In point of fact, it's very explicitly a Hellenistic morality play, of the philosophical bent very common during the period between about 450-250 BC, which would make a lot of sense owing to the contact between the Greek world and the Levant at that time. Job probably has the latest composition of any Old Testament book except 1 and 2 Maccabees.

            At this point, the only thing phony baloney midwit "historians" haven't done is accuse Yahweh of Euhemerism, and I wouldn't be surprised if they got around to that before the year's over.

            The Greeks thought the God of the israelites was Dionysus like 300 years before Christ. At least some did; others thought he was Ouranos (Not Kronos/Saturn like some Romans thought), still others thought Proteus, etc. The point is never to take the opinions of chauvinist polytheists who can't comprehend the notion of an all-powerful singular god and who really don't care about other country's opinions at face value. You wouldn't expect an Ugly American Tourist to give a fair shake to Shintoism or native Igbo religion after all, would you?

            We're not taking the opinions of chauvinist polytheists though, we're taking the opinions of archaeologists and other academics who tell us the likely origins of Yahweh and his place in the canaanite pantheon. But you don't even need to do that to know he's a war god, you can just read his scripture.

            There is some opinions in academia that certain things associated with Jesus derived from Dionysus cults, that's pretty different from ancient greeks just deciding Yahweh is the same as Dionysus.

            He is not a war God, he is the God who commands all the armies of heaven. A single soldier of God once descended on an Assyrian camp and killed 185,000 soldiers in one night. And he has trillions of legions of them under his command. They all move as one, as if they all had a single mind, in perfect harmony and unison.

            The fact that we find greek names such as "Jason" on biblical characters proves this even more, it's incredible how much the bible was influenced by the culture and the ideology of the people of the time, it's like as if it wasn't so much divinely inspired after all...

            Are you Muslim, perchance? Because this is the exact argument they make to prove the Bible is corrupted and the Quran is the pure unaltered word of Allah (who speaks Arabic and only Arabic since before the universe was created)

            I didn't say that, i never spoke about languages nor i have said the word "language" in the post.
            I am not arguing about language but about culture, what i want to say is that don't you think it's a little bit weird and suspicious that the bible (as every other religious text) contains only the point of view of the people who have written it? Along with their limited knowledge of the world? I have never seen the american continent mentioned in the bible, maybe it's because it wasn't discovered yet? Surely an all knowing God would have described the world in its full entirety instead of limiting itself to what religious people exclusively knew at the time.
            The fact that God and all the prophets seem to have the same limited knowledge proves that all religions are a farce invented for humans, written by humans and to control humans.

            You're conflating the overzealous biblical inerrancy theology that crazy evangelicals do with the ordinary concept of divine inspiration. To many christians, the bible is mainly a tool used for to know the appropriate teachings of god and some history of his true religion on earth. They don't claim it's proof of their religion.
