A great post.

Who would be proud these tactics?

"It's just a story designed to teach absolute obeisance to God, absolute denial of personal morality and all sense of self and respect, to bow down to the singular authority of this 'god.'"

Precisely.
To be clear: Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of gods; it is a lack of belief in gods.

Excellent point

"When Jesus spoke to those that day about picking up their cross and following him they would have had no idea what he was talking about. His crucifixion was unknown to them at the time."

Non-Theist

If you stop claiming knowledge of invisible, undetectable unicorns, I will stop challenging your claim. Same goes for gods

ANY of the thousands of "gods" proposed, imagined, worshiped, loved, feared, and/or fought over by humans MAY exist -- awaiting verifiable evidence

For a quick tutorial on science vs. religion, compare modern internet weather radar to ancient religious beliefs and superstitions about weather

Exactly. And so called reforms and protections that Mosaic Hebrews are credited with implementing are only attempts to preserve an inherently corrupt institution. "Lipstick on a pig" as they say.
My theological positions:

-God created us in His image, not the other way around.
-The Bible is redeemed by it's good parts.
-Pure monotheism, simple repentance.
-YHVH is LORD
-The real Jesus is not God, the real YHVH is not a monster.
-Eternal life is a gift from the Living God.
-Keep the Commandments, keep your salvation.
-I have accepted YHVH as my Heavenly Father, LORD and Savior.

I am inspired by Jesus to worship none but YHVH, and to serve only Him.

Exactly! I was just about to say this myself. Glad someone else beat me to it.

Society and its morals evolve and will continue to evolve. The bible however remains the same and just requires more and more apologetics and claims of "metaphors" and "symbolism" to justify it.

Prayer is like rubbing an old bottle and hoping that a genie will pop out and grant you three wishes.

There is much about this world that is mind boggling and impressive, but I see no need whatsoever to put it down to magical super powered beings.
