Sinning, as Jesus and the church say, is good. Turn or burn Christians.

"Above Gods" sounds a little bit arrogant.

Did you feel arrogant when passing every grade and test? Of course not.

This is just another rite of passage.

It is a recognition that we have matured mentally enough to know a myth from history.

In intelligent cultures, it is a sign of manhood.

In the less intelligent cultures, they continue to believe in a Satan waiting in hell for them and a genocidal Yahweh that is somehow good for creating such a mess.

I agree that fear can be positive under certain circumstances. I meant the fear of God is a negative concept. Because you dont do the laws because of empathy. You do it because you want a reward like being in heaven in the afterlife. THat is a egoistic reason.

Empathy has its own rewards and it is definitely connected to our selfish gene and ego. As you indicate

A great gift from nature.

You do not seem to appreciate what keeps you alive.

You usually do not feel superior, because you are better in a test.

No, empathy has not necessarily benefits. When it benefits the own group, it has benefits, otherwise no.

Organization, I am not.

The most people are not in an organization or in these organiztions but they advertised them. The media is responsible for this, because they do nothing. They could have advertised BLM or the Green-movement years ago.

God hates sin.

Psalm 5:4–5
“You are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you. The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers”.
Psalm 11:5
“The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence”.

Let me add.

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

“You are not a God who delights in wickedness;

Created he good and evil, for his pleasure.

Only the uneducated will not know that the bible contradicts itself all the time.

If Yahweh did not like wickedness, he would not use genocide all over the bible.

Think, for god's sake.

Why did your god give Satan extra powers to deceive the whole world, if he did not want her to use them?

When we talk about what God did or did not do, or what God will or will not do, or (even more arrogantly and ignorantly) what God should or should not do, we put ourselves in the place of God, and God in our place. That we should know what God ought to do -- when it is plainly apparent that we don't even know what we ourselves should be doing most of the time -- is laughable.
