The devil did it

Why would human prefer to be able to blame, their own unsocial behaviors, onto influences of  some other being ?. For instance, the devil figure ,seems to have become a mighty popular crutch, to be able to lean back on,whenever people might begin to feel ashamed, of their own misbehavior

I find myself questioning, what this would help humans achieve?

Would it be likely to help humans to be able to become, more responsible, for their own misbehavior?. How ?

Christians, and other believers say that the devil is actively causing human to misbehave more.

While God is helping human to be able to behave better, and in fact is even able to change transform humans hearts for better

I don’t like to sound too judgmental about it. But i still cannot help but notice, that it seem to me, that the believers can act fairly antisocially.Fairly regular.

Whats with that? . I was told that believer were like the moonbeam of goodness

How does one be able to enter into boldly honest dialog,about these kind of important issues,without wanting to be/sound too judgmental?

That’s hard.Its so hard to be bluntly honest,about these mighty important issues,without offending

How can it happen?

If the theist is laying the claim that Jesus is able to transform human hearts, for better. Then surely we also should see massive amount of evidence available to help back-up these claim ,universally, what would then also leave absolutely no doubt, in any of our minds, in regard to this bold claim?

I don’t feel like i observe it all that often.Just saying.And i don’t feel as if ive even experienced so much of it either. Truth is, in my life experiences, its always been non believers whom have been more helpful. More understanding.Far more caring and empathetic and compassionate too. I’m being honest in regard to what ive constantly experienced

Is it wrong, of me, that i’d be questioning the validity of theist claim ?.Would it be evil,of me, that i’d dare to do so?

Would it be better if i’d remain silent and not even mention it?

The problem (i feel) is this. If the claim is misinformed.Where does that then leave humanity?.Being that the world is still populated with a huge majority of believers.Who are all banking on the idea that this claim must be correct

Is the Devil, as a crutch,in effect aiding humans to not need to address their own misbehavior?. Aiding them to forgo responsibility?

Perhaps that could even be highly unhelpful?. Highly dangerous even ?

Today we are faced with a world of what needs more human that are willing to promptly learn to responsibly own up to their own mistakes?

An atheist doesn’t have the liberty to blame, their own misbehavior,onto another being.When we act badly. Ultimately it is also then us who must learn to accept responsibility for our misbehavior, then try harder, and harder,to try an learn to transform ourselves

We don’t have the luxury of blaming our own misbehavior, onto another being.We might be laughed at, if we tried to create some influential being, to use as our scapegoat

Fairly often when an atheist is observed to be involved in bad behavior,online.It will be other atheist who will remind them, and try and coach them, to try and  help them learn how to act better.Atheist are fairly pro active in this way.They need to be?.After all we have already been delivered, a bad name, of being immoral .Been accused and convicted as nihilists and so on .Been directly compared to Hitler and Stalin,and so forth, mainly because those dictators had also happen to be atheist dictators (well that’s been the popular claim,anyway,so i just wont bother to argue that point.I’m not bothered)

Even so, i still feel mighty glad, that we won’t have the luxury, of blaming our own misbehavior, onto anyone/anything else, but ourselves. As that’s to do with humans learning to act more responsibly?.

Humans have reason to learn to be a little less sheeple ?.For so many reason.So that we might perhaps learn to think for ourselves.To stop and fully consider the choices we make, rather than simply following along with the lead of others around us.To therefore learn to be brave, even when we may need to feel different in doing so https://yobeauty.wordpress.com/2018/07/29/be-brave/

 

Is the devil figure constantly being used as a scapegoat ?

 

 

 

 

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
