A recent discussion led me to combining, what we know about the world’s history and Christian dogma. If I made any errors from the Christian viepoint, please correct me.
There is an ultimately powerful and wise intellect, as a whole umcomprehensible to mere humans, which we call God.
That God creates a universe.
Then He waits for roughly 12bln years, during which stars, galaxies, and planets incl. Earth are formed. He then creates the very first life on Earth.
Then He waits another 4bln something years during which this life evolves to near human creatures, with or without His guiding influence. At that point He gives a soul to those creatures, transforming them real humans. ***Each ***soul has the following properties:
*] It is eternal and leaves the body after death.
*] It is expected to follow a certain code of conduct set by Him.
*] It may decide by its own will, whether to follow that code or not.
*] If it follows the code, it will be rewarded, if not, it will be punished or at least may not participate in the reward.
*] Every single soul has already broken the code, because the first two souls did so.
*]It is necessary for every soul to recognise that, to repent, and to ask God for forgiveness for breaking the code, so that it may be saved from the punishment.
[/list] Then He waits for several 10000 years before He reveals Himself to a tiny minority of humans (the ancient Hebrews), and tells them about the afore mentioned code and how He wants to be worshipped for the first time.
Then He waits for roughly another 2500 years and assumes human form. After having lived an ordinary life for 30 years he starts telling a handful of people, what the code *really *is and how He *really *wants to be worshipped. Because that differs from the rules established 2500 years ago, the descendants of the people, to whom He has revealed Himself, get Him killed. Somehow this is a symbol or even necessary for Him to save the code-breaking humans. Three days after His death, He reappears and orders that handful of people to spread the new rules all over the world.
Everybody is now oblieged to believe that story. Uhm, hello?
