God Loves Bill Maher


By now, I’m assuming you’ve heard about how agnostic comedy talk show host Bill Maher totally trashed the biblical story of Noah and committed total blasphemy against God as well when he called God a, “psychotic mass murderer.”

In case you didn’t see the comments, they are posted below and then The Brody File has something to say to Mr. Maher.

Bill Maher: “And finally, New Rule: No one can blame me when I say this is a stupid country, when 60 percent of the adults in it think the Noah's Ark story is literally true...”

“Now, I don't know about the elephants on Noah's Ark, but the elephant in the room in 2014 is that we are now a full four centuries removed from the scientific revolution. Four centuries after Copernicus, after the time humans realized that through science, we could actually get a real answer to almost every question about our world, like where does the sun go at night? And why does disease spread so quickly on a cruise ship?

And speaking of cruise ships, you know I don't mind that the Noah story is impossibly childish. Okay, I do mind. What am I saying? I mind very much. I mean, seriously people? You believe a man Noah lived to be 900 years old — that's what the Bible says — and when he was 500, he decided to have three kids, just like Clint Eastwood. And when he was 600, he and his three 100-year-old sons built a boat onto which in one day, they loaded over 3 million animals, all of which were apparently indigenous to within 5 miles of the boat.

But get this. What the Christians who are now protesting this movie are upset about is that it doesn't take the Biblical story literally enough. They're mad because this made up story doesn't stay true to their made up story.

But the thing that's really disturbing about Noah isn't the silly. It's that's it's immoral. It's about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God. Genesis says God was so angry with himself for screwing up when he made mankind so flawed — rrrrr — that he sent the flood to kill everyone! Everyone! Men, women, children, babies.

What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he's mad at? I mean, besides Chris Christie. (audience laughter and applause)…”

“You know, conservatives are always going on about how Americans are losing their values and their morality. Well, maybe it's because you worship a guy who drowns babies! And then, God's genius plan after he kills everyone is to repopulate the world with a new crop of the same (redacted) who (redacted) him off the first time! With predictable results. He kills millions more.”

Bill, first of all: God is God and that means He can do whatever he wants, anytime He wants, for any reason He wants. He doesn’t answer to Bill Maher or me or anybody.

Do I have all the answers when it comes to Noah and the ark? No. It’s called a miracle by God. God can suspend natural order to do whatever He wants even if Bill Maher can’t understand it. But if Bill wants some scientific proof, he can go to this really cool thing called “Google” and see it for himself.

Most scientists agree that there is ample evidence of a universal flood dating to Noah’s time. Look it up, Bill. It’s everywhere and many of the scientists are liberals! Those are your “peeps.” Oh, and by the way 60 percent of people in America believe the story of Noah’s ark is true. That puts you in the minority but at least that’s a better place to be than hell.

Unfortunately, that’s the location you’re heading unless you repent and give your life over to Jesus. He LOVES you Bill, He loves me, you and every person reading this article right now.

Think about that Bill: You said some horrible, blasphemous things against God Almighty and yet He still loves you. He wants you in His kingdom, despite what you say about Him. That’s called love. True love. Grace. That’s not a psychotic mass murderer.

Bill, it seems like you're really angry at established religion. Guess what? Religion is man-made. People are sinful. They disappoint. You're not really angry with God. You're angry at people and institutions that have disappointed you.

Hey Bill, look I feel ya. I grew up Jewish. I'm now a Jewish believer in Jesus (Y'shua). I love the Jewish people and I'm proud of my people. But let's be real. Rituals and traditions can get in the way of a real, intimate personal relationship with Jesus. That doesn't just go for Judaism. Catholics, certain Christian denominations, too. It's called legalism.

Anyhow, look, Bill. The choice is yours. Your comedy might crack up an audience in Los Angeles but it doesn’t amuse God. He is an audience of one. He’ll have the final say.

We know how the story ends for each one of us when our life is over: Jesus says, “Every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God. “

This IS going to happen Bill. It’s your choice if it happens now or after you die. My prayer is that you choose now before it's too late.

good response David and even though there is a strong urge to hate a nd be hatefull to Bill and ppl like him Jesus says to pray for them and bless them. Talk about hard to understand yet that is what we must do.And we are more blessed for it than if we became more like bill and hated and said hatefull things.Father forgive them they know not what they do.

Good response David. I too believe that Bill is angry at the church and people who let him down. Jesus said the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. If he got to know the real Jesus he would fall in love with him too. If Moses could learn God's ways then we can too. It took Noah 120 years to build the ark so the people had 120 years to repent. I call that God's mercy before his judgment. Remember Paul he persecuted believers, but God got his attention and he can get Bill's too.

Bill Maher is definitely over the top when it comes to religion. Way too knee-jerk against any person of any faith at all.

"Most scientists agree that there is ample evidence of a universal flood dating to Noah’s time". Okay, so we're clear. "Most" means majority. That would mean that at least 51% of the scientific community accept the evidence for a "Universal" flood on earth roughly 4 to 5 thousand years ago. I'd love to see some proof of this claim.

You made Mr. Maher's point. You stress how much your imaginary friend supposedly loves Bill Maher and how he will continue to love him right up to the point he consigns him to eternal torture because he pointed out how psychotic it is to murder almost everyone on earth. Those are the acts of an insane creature. Fortunately, it is just a scary fable, just like the story of Noah and the ark.

I have to admit I am looking forward to the very uncomfortable sequel to the movie "Noah:" "Noah 2 - The Incestuous Repopulation."

So many of today's expressions by atheists are vitriolic and not argumentative - and therefore bigoted. I refer to Bill's criticism about God being a bully that drowns babies. He conveniently ignores that Noah warned the people of God's coming judgement - for 120 years! So if you know the hurricane of the century is coming and you laugh it off and stay there - WHO is responsible if your baby dies?

"Most scientists agree that there is ample evidence of a universal flood dating to Noah’s time."

I'm really, really gonna need to see a cite for this amazing statistic. I think you will find instead that:

1) Virtually no actual scientists believe this.
2) Of the very small number who do, very few of them will be in relevant disciplines, such as geology and biology. I don't much care what a metallurgist or electrical engineer has to say about that subject.
3) Of that even smaller group, none of them will have come to the conclusion that the Noachian flood was real based on the evidence, but will have instead an a priori commitment to Biblical literalism that allows, nay compels, them to ignore the actual evidence.
