The "YHWH is a daemon" trope, by falling into genetic fallacies, doesn't help anyone because it doesn't explain Christian mysticism nor the Incarnation; becoming an argument disjunct from Christianity. Marcionism. So let's explain the soteriological necessity of the Incarnation.

We can explain Christian mysticism easily: to the degree Christianity maintained pious religion, it received good providence (the gods always prosper goodness). It doesn't mean it was free of falseness, and that falseness is its dedication to a false god.

The false god may not appear throughout the whole religion, indeed we can find parallels between the mystical behaviour of saints and gods, but nonetheless he is present; a kernel of corruption. The daemon crushed Rome and now he crushes all her sons.



So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
