Me: *mentions Yahweh in a post about the Abrahamic god*
Christian, Jew or Muslim: Who tf is Yahweh?*
My brain, every time:
By which I mean this exact image pops into my head
(Why do I, an atheist, know more about who you worship than you do?!)
* Not an exaggeration. This is a direct quote from an interaction a while back.

Yahweh did not check who inside the house was worthy, He checked for the Blood on the doorposts. None of us is worthy, only the Blood of Yahshua can cover us.

Oh how much fear we’d overcome, enemies we’d defeat, brokenness we’d restore, wounds we’d heal, peace we’d find, and battles we’d win if only we started our day with prayer, and did not stop until the day was through.

“Asi como Jesús dividió la historia en 'Antes de Cristo y Despues de Cristo', tu historia tambien tiene un "antes y despues" de Cristo. Sólo El tiene el poder y habilidad de cambiarla. Atrévete a dejar en Sus manos tu rumbo.”

The depiction of the god of Genesis as ignorant, foolish, and even malicious may be the feature of Gnostic mythology that most offended other ancient Christians and still puzzles modern readers. We have already noted that philosophically inclined Jews and Christians agreed that the creator god in Genesis resembled the craftsman god of Plato’s Timaeus and was not the highest God, but the Gnostics took a much less positive view of this divine being. Their view most likely developed from passages in the Bible that portray God as ignorant and wrathful. The god of Genesis, after all, walks in an earthly garden and must ask where Adam is (Genesis 3:8–9); he concludes that his creation of humanity and animals was a mistake and decides to destroy all people, except for a single family and a few beasts (6:5–22); and he later annihilates entire cities by raining sulfur and fire down upon them (19:24–25). Such passages troubled many pious readers of the Bible in antiquity: some learned interpreters argued that these events are not literally true, but have spiritual meanings; others attributed these actions to a lower, less perfect manifestation of God, his “presence” or his “word.” The Gnostics solved this problem simply: this god is as ignorant, vain, and hostile to human beings as he appears. Therefore, he must not be truly divine, not truly God, but Ialdabaoth. Moses failed to recognize this fact, and thus Genesis, which he wrote, provides only a partially reliable account of creation, Adam and Eve, and their progeny.

Forte não é aquele capaz de falar sobre aquilo que feriu, forte é aquele que consegue perdoar e esquecer, porque a palavra de Deus permanece nele.

During the Second Temple Period, when Jews were living in the Achaemenid Empire, Judaism was heavily influenced by Zoroastrianism, the religion of the Achaemenids.Jewish conceptions of Satan were impacted by Angra Mainyu, the Zoroastrian god of evil, darkness, and ignorance.In the Septuagint, the Hebrew ha-Satan in Job and Zechariah is translated by the Greek word diabolos (slanderer), the same word in the Greek New Testament from which the English word "devil" is derived.Where satan is used to refer to human enemies in the Hebrew Bible, such as Hadad the Edomite and Rezon the Syrian, the word is left untranslated but transliterated in the Greek as satan, a neologism in Greek
The idea of Satan as an opponent of God and a purely evil figure seems to have taken root in Jewish pseudepigrapha during the Second Temple Period, particularly in the apocalypses. The Book of Enoch, which the Dead Sea Scrolls have revealed to have been nearly as popular as the Torah, describes a group of 200 angels known as the "Watchers", who are assigned to supervise the earth, but instead abandon their duties and have sexual intercourse with human women. The leader of the Watchers is Semjâzâ and another member of the group, known as Azazel, spreads sin and corruption among humankindThe Watchers are ultimately sequestered in isolated caves across the earth and are condemned to face judgement at the end of time. The Book of Jubilees, written in around 150 BC,retells the story of the Watchers' defeat,but, in deviation from the Book of Enoch, Mastema, the "Chief of Spirits", intervenes before all of their demon offspring are sealed away, requesting for Yahweh to let him keep some of them to become his workers. Yahweh acquiesces this request and Mastema uses them to tempt humans into committing more sins, so that he may punish them for their wickedness. Later, Mastema induces Yahweh to test Abraham by ordering him to sacrifice Isaac
The Second Book of Enoch, also called the Slavonic Book of Enoch, contains references to a Watcher called Satanael. It is a pseudepigraphic text of an uncertain date and unknown authorship. The text describes Satanael as being the prince of the Grigori who was cast out of heaven and an evil spirit who knew the difference between what was "righteous" and "sinful". In the Book of Wisdom, the devil is taken to be the being who brought death into the world, but originally the culprit was recognized as Cain.The name Samael, which is used in reference to one of the fallen angels, later became a common name for Satan in Jewish

Do you see Satan as the good guy in Xtian lore? It's a popular interpretation, given the whole "the serpent technically gave us all free will and wasn't really being dishonest" thing, but I wanted to hear your take on him.
The mythology does seem to cast the satans, the resistors, the opponents as the Rebellion, in opposition to the tyranny of the Dark Lord's Empire and his bloodthirsty need to extract "vengeance" from the ant-like people who find themselves in his crosshairs.
Even if the Devil, the particularly famous satan, isn't necessarily the "good" guy, he's undoubtedly less bad than the all-powerful, baby-murdering, kitten-drowning, villainous Dark Lord of Jealousy. Or his demented, psychopathic, self-immolating self-son who fantasizes about ultraviolencing for all eternity everyone who doesn't want to join his Droogs.
Although admittedly that's an extremely low bar.
I regard as the “good guys” the humans who stood up to and bravely fought against the villainous tyranny from the sky, even though they were doomed to be wiped out by a creature who could - and did - destroy them with a casual air. Like Onan, who was commanded to impregnate his sister-in-law, to give his dead brother - who had already been arbitrarily executed by the Evil Space Emperor - children. He pulled out, spilled his seed on the ground, and the Celestial Sith Lord killed him then and there, out of utter malice and pure spite, nothing more than a fly on a windscreen. But Onan won. No matter what, the Sinister Space Sorcerer didn’t get get what it wanted.
It’s the overwhelmingly unnamed who were brave enough to stand up to insurmountable evil and deny villainy what it wanted. They, and the human spirit, are the true heroes of the bible.
