Is it offensive to Jews or Christians to refer to their god as “the god the Jews made up”?

Is it offensive to Jews or Christians to refer to their god as “the god the Jews made up”? Topic: How to write a historical question example
July 19, 2019 / By Christiana
Question: If so, what’s offensive about it? I honestly can’t see how a simple statement of truth would be offensive except only to people who are offended by the truth, and if people are offended by the truth, then what’s the point in even talking to them?

Your opinion regarding the basis of the "god the Jews made up" opens some questions? 1) What is your basis for saying it is phony? 2) Have you ever investigated the reliability of Christianity and Judiaism? 3) If you have never investigated then why? Is it because: i) you are having too much fun looking foolish mocking God and Christians etc.? ii) you have chosen to live a completely narcisictic lifestyle and don't want there to be a God. (this is common, Aldous Huxley for example if you read his material) iii) you have chosen an immoral lifestyle and enjoy the drugs, sex and alcohol too much? iv) you are just too lazy? v) you are afraid of the answer and so will never look? Josh McDowell, C.S. Lewis and Lee Stroebel were actually hostile to Christianity and Malcolm Muggridge, Alister McGrath and Anne Rice are examples of people that were atheists until they decided to investigate the Christian faith. After looking they actually became more than average Christians but also proclaimers of God and Jesus. I see so many today that will believe any conspiracy or historical fiction and believe it without any empirical evidence. I guess they have an open mind but haven't or don't want to learn what is true. Actually if you look at both Lee Stroebel started out writing a book to attack the integrity of the Bible and Josh McDowell accepted the challenge to show that the Christian faith was false ... and then they both ended up Christians proclaiming the faith world wide! I hope your closed and dark mind opens and lets in the light, lets in hope and lets in love someday and finds out there is a God and the Saviour Jesus.

Avalina Originally Answered: Is there actual science, as the Jewish professor claims about non-Jews (but not Jews) being donkeys?
There is a famous Rabbinic Statement (in Tractate Derech Eretz) about man and his thoughts. "If someone says that the earlier generations were angels, then he is a man; if he says that they were mere men, then he is a donkey." Neither the terms angels nor donkeys are to be taken literally. We know that our ancestors were mortals. Unlike the Greeks (or Germans or Japanese) , we don't claim that they were gods or the children of god-human parentage. If, however, we respect our parents and rabbis as one properly should, then we MAY claim to be people. If we take the approach that they are our equals, then our intelligence lacks and we get to be called donkeys. As for you, you are an enigma. Most of your "questions" are aimed at promoting an anti-Semitic agenda, but some of your answers indicate that you are much deeper and Intelligent.

First of all my dear, it's offensive, because you say you KNOW that their God is not real and that you know the absolute truth. The offensive thing is.........you can't possibly KNOW that their God is "made up" That would mean you are claiming to KNOW EVERYTHING, and only God knows everything, not you. Your are claiming to have all knowledge.............that is what is offensive. People disagree about God all of the time, that is NOT what is offensive, but telling people that you know all of the TRUTH is very offensive. No human being has that kind of knowledge. Sounds like you think pretty highly of yourself. I can't wait to grow up and be just like you.

Why do you consider yourself so wise as to know the truth? There is more hope in a fool, than a man wise in his own conceit, i.e., you know nothing of the truth, and you never will. If it is the truth, than prove to me that God does not exist. In the first place, can you define what God is? And what makes you think your definition is true? Can you prove God exists? These are beliefs, so do not be so pretentious to claim your beliefs are the truth absolute. I have nothing but disdain for those who cannot see.

Because you're insulting their beliefs and they don't believe your statement is true. And why do you think that it's the truth? There's nothing wrong with not believing in the Jewish/Christian God and thinking that She doesn't exist, but claiming to be 100% certain is arrogance. But based on your blog/angry rant space, I'm assuming you just don't like anyone that doesn't think exactly like you. "Atheists: do you consider yourself to be an equal opportunity religion mocker?" "Atheists: what kind of activities should we provide for religious people locked up in our FEMA camps?" "Christians: accept that your god is imaginary until you have evidence…ACCEPT IT!" ↑ All taken directly from your blog.

I agree with this portion of your statement: if people are offended by the truth, there is little point in talking to them. Still, we keep trying.

1) Is it right for Jews to show favoritism to all other Jews in the business world and workplace? Yes, it is, and we Christians should do the same (as instructed by Scripture). 2) Is it fair to the rest of the world for Jews to be indoctrinated to show a strong preference and nepotism for all other Jews? Yes, it is, and we Christians should do the same (as instructed by Scripture). If one's religious compatriots are literally "brothers" and "sisters", one should treat them accordingly. To do less is religious hypocrisy. Jim, http://www.bible-reviews.com/
