Reader Calls the Bible a Fairy Tale
And the Bible is quite a myth. It includes both the unseen world and the observable world. It is the story of the war of the elohims (gods).
From the Bible we are revealed there was a war between elohims and the Creator of all. The rebels ended up on earth. They turned our planet into a miserable place of poverty, disease and finally death. In the New Testament they are called the rulers of this world.
The story is kicked up a big notch when the Elohim of Elohims (Yahweh) enters into human history. He models for us how to destroy the works of the rebel elohim using supernatural power. He then empowers us to go out and take territory. It is hand to hand trench warfare.
What keeps us going are our successes, coupled with the promise that one day He will come with his loyal Elohims. He will take captive all the rebel elohims and all the humans who attached themselves to them.
That’s quite a fairy tale!
