Why does god put the needs of the few above the need of the many?

RE: Why does god put the needs of the few above the need of the many?
What's your imaginary friend going to do?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Really, why?

It’s one thing not to believe, but to add thereto? Ill-advised!

“But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” - Matthew 12:36-37

“You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!” - James 2:19

Why should anyone consider your magic book for anything?

Personally, I am not into incest, genocide, human sacrifice, rape, misogyny, slavery or any of the other crap your magic book is fond of and condones.

I have no idea why any moral being would be.

So spare us the holey babble quotes. Nobody is fooled by those lies from the magic book.

You should be even more terrified about all the years of your life you've wasted promoting the worship of an utterly undetectable, yet implacably evil god.  What a fucking waste of the only life you'll ever have.

I have never been able to believe in your imaginary fiend, for the simple reason that the Bible appears to be nothing more than a collection of substandard archaic mythology, with an unsympathetic protagonist and countless plotholes.  Your religion has only survived this long because of fear-mongering, and it's now dying in the jaws of the Internet.

If "the Almighty" has anything at all to say to me, it'll have to do so in person.  Your services, Mercyvessel, are simply not required.

No problem, but I would remiss if I didn't indicate that ultimately, the Truth will be known.

"Apocalypse (ἀποκάλυψις, apokálypsis) is a Greek word meaning "revelation", "an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and which could not be known apart from the unveiling".

Romans 14:11

Is that the part where the hebrew hammer comes back to murder and/or subjugate all non jews?

Unless "the Truth" can be known in the context of a normal human life, you're out to lunch on that claim.  There is no evidence that consciousness is possible after death, and no credible evidence for life after death, either.  It's mythology all the way down.

Yeah, and why was he banned? There's no explanation in the "Staff Log" topic.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Ok thanks, I overlooked that post.
