God seems like he’s a communist

Think about it, God’s idea of paradise, the Garden of Eden, has no freewill whatsoever. He provides all your needs in exchange for, no, he demands for complete worship and total obedience, if you disobey him, you are punished and damned, which is similar to communism, and so, everything that America stands for, democracy, freedom of speech and expression, freedom to protest, freedom of religion, freedom to dissent, all of these civil liberties that Americans stands for and enjoys are incompatible with God’s idea of paradise.

Remember the story of Jonah and the whale, Jonah protested against God and God punished him by imprisoning him inside a whale, and God only releases Jonah after he pledges to obey and worship God.

  1. The basic mistake here is to assume that God’s law isn’t for our own best good. If God is good and wishes us to do what is good also, there shouldn’t be any disputes or debates about the need to do His will once we know what it is. So many evils would be prevented if we really did obey the golden rule, the Ten Commandments, the two great commandments, etc. To become a slave to sin by free choice simply isn’t good. We can choose, for example, to become drug addicts, but how much “freedom” do heroin addicts have? There are other relevant definitions for “freedom” besides “absence of coercion,” and one of those is to be set free from error and the inevitable death that sin produces in in humanity by believing in Christ:

    (John 8:32-36) “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can you say, ‘You will be made free’?” Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. “And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” (NKJV)

    Now, I should explain why God created humanity to begin with, since that explains why He gave us freedom of the will, but then wants us to obey Him. God is now in the process of making beings like Himself (Matt. 5:48; John 17:20-24; John 10:30-34; Hebrews 2:6-11) who would have 100% free will but would choose to be 100% righteous. Consider in this context what could be called the “thesis statement” of Scripture in Genesis 1:26: “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Why did God make us look like Him and think like him? This is further confirmed by the statement concerning the purposes for the ministry’s service to fellow Christians includes this statement: “for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ . . .” (Ephesians 4:12-13). God wants us to become just like Jesus is, who is God and has perfect character (i.e., the habits of obedience to God’s law (Hebrews 5:8-9), not just imputed righteousness), yet was tempted to sin and didn’t (Hebrews 4:15). The purpose of life for Christians is to develop holy righteous character during their tests and trials in life as the Holy Spirit aids them (James 1:2-4; Romans 5:3-5; Hebrews 11:5-6, 11; II Corinthians 4:16-17).

    Now the habits of obedience and righteousness can’t be created by fiat or instantaneous order. Rather, the person who is separate from God has to choose to obey what is right and reject what is wrong on his or her own. But every time a person does what is wrong, that will hurt him, others, and/or God. Yet God has to allow us to have free will, because He wants His created beings to have free will like He does, otherwise they wouldn’t be becoming like Him (cf. Hebrews 2:5-13). God didn’t want to create a set of robots that automatically obey His law, which declares His will for how humanity and the angels should behave. Robots wouldn’t be like Him, for they wouldn’t have free will nor the ability to make fully conscious choices. So then God needs to test us, to see how loyal we’ll be in advance of granting us eternal life, such as He did concerning Abraham’s desire for a son by Sarah by asking him to sacrifice him (Genesis 22).

  2. As humorous as the idea is, you do know that communism isn’t just Marxist-Leninism right? Do you even know what Marxist-Leninism is compared to all the other ideologies that fall under communism. Asking legitimately, because you speak about communism like, well, someone who has no idea what it is…

  3. 1. Jesus was a socialist.

    2. You haven’t the slightest idea what communism means. Not that that is surprising for an American. The Red Scare era propaganda campaign never really ended.

  4. Communism isn’t about total obedience to the state. I know it can seem like that because the most high profile ‘communist’ countries were like that, but that isn’t what communism is.

    Communism, at its core, is just a system where everyone in the group works for the group as a whole rather than for themselves. You work on a farm or whatever and what is produced goes to the state, and the state provides you with housing and food and such. Ever been to a commune? Basically that, just larger scale (Hence why it is kind of hard to implement).

    God’s system though, is an autocracy. One person in absolute power controlling the entire country, no-one else has a say in anything. Nothing like communism.

  5. The Bible has a number of stories about people resisting God’s will and being punished for it. However I don’t see a link to communism which was a political/economic system developed in the 19th century as a response to the excesses and associated problems of the industrial revolution and capitalism at that time. Communism was never properly implemented by any of the governments that ascribed to it. As envisioned by Marx, people would have had free speech and full voting rights.

  6. One of the issues with communism is that you are giving your freewill away to a person, a fallen human. The difference between giving yourself in your entirety to God the Father is everything.

    It’s why communist countries try and eradicate the peoples reliance on God; so that the people can instead be reliant on the dictator. It isn’t that God is a communist, it’s that communists want to be like God.
