In a recent article in the New York Times by Shalom Auslander titled, “In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God,” the media’s continued assault on God and believers took a somewhat rare, direct approach. Instead of telling us that the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were just people living their respective truths, Shalom takes a different angle. During this holiest time of the year, the guest essayist suggests “we” should “pass over” God.

Using one of the holiest days in his parents’ religion to make a bad pun, the author is clearly trying to be controversial. But we should take the bait here to explore the fallacy that he presents.
“Perhaps now is a good time to teach our children to pass over God — to be as unlike him as possible,” writes Shalom Auslander. https://t.co/KrXseAu9Ov

The article states that, “in this time of war and violence, of oppression and suffering, I propose we pass over something else: God.”
Regurgitating the usual low-IQ critiques from the big brains on the left, Auslander criticized the punishment for Eve’s actions in Genesis, the hardening of the Egyptian Pharaoh’s heart during the exodus, and he even tied the war in Ukraine to his meandering rant against the Creator of the universe.
Auslander suggests that now, “as missiles rain down and the dead are discovered in mass graves, is a good time to stop emulating this hateful God.”
No, this wasn’t taken from the Amazing Atheist’s comment section; this is from the New York Times.
His entire argument boils down to, “God did things I don’t agree with, so we should all leave God behind.” This is the mindset of someone with the aforementioned hardened heart, someone whose pride and materialism will not allow him to get over himself. Believers would do well to recognize anti-Christian propaganda like this for what it is.
