Glad to be of assistance.
God invented bullying and created the bullies... AND in many ways he bullied his own 'son' Jesus... (what else would you call making him human and ensuring he died a painful, humiliating, miserable and degrading death?)
According to the Bible...1. God created everything, including choice, pain and suffering. Therefore anyone choosing anything is a load of nonsense. 2.If Jesus died for our sins why do the vast majority of people have a horrible life and painful death? 3.Again God made demons and hell and he can change the rules if he wants to. 4. Think of 'it', what you are saying, this way.... If I were to create a world... say a world of mice where I played God and I stuck in a few of the rules you have just 'shared'... where I tortured, maimed and made the mice that didn't follow my rules for reasons I understood and the mice had no concept, then that's how your version of God (or the one in the Bible) is behaving. If there were a God then he wouldn't have invented bullying or the need to toady to him if for any reason you feel a bit content or happy.
What bit of 'God made everything' do you not understand? Supposedly he created freewill sin heaven hell... EVERYTHING.. including you me and everyone... time... he invented that, behaviour that's his as well... interaction EVERYTHING. You can't pick and chose... either you say God made everything or there is no God... you can't pick a third route by saying 'freewill' because if God made everything then there is no such thing. Supposing for a minute that there was I return to my mice theory, if I were to behave with the mice as God does with mankind then I would be a total git! (btw God created criminals, criminality, crime, perverts, nutters, demons, horrible people, nice people, indifferent people (it's a very very long list) God created evil and if he were a God then he could undo evil...
Try this... God created and can end freewill...AND why on earth did he create free will? what kind of stupid idea is that if it causes so much suffering?
God did create Satan, demons and all nasty things... if he is God then he made everything EVERYTHING..
Just try one day to live without worrying about good, evil, sin, god and the whole convoluted load of old tripe... I promise you won't go back.
See those IS people in Iraq... that's where religion ends up... all God's work and all easy for him to stop
Are you really so blind that you can't accept that God (if there is a God) made everything? either he made everything and controls everything or he doesn't and didn't... There is no 'someday' for God... God made Satan... why on earth would God need to create heaven and hell? and damn some people just for making the wrong choices? what kind of f***d up idea is that? Go back to my mouse world theory and apply what you say... what kind of a person is God? not a God really...
Who are you to judge me? as in 'you are the kind of person who complains...' you know NOTHING about me.
God invented Sin. God invented punishment and forgiveness. God invented Heaven and hell. God invented Good and Evil. God invented tolerance and being stubborn. God invented me you and everyone. (what makes you think therefore that you have the answers and I don't? or that the answers are hidden in a mouldy old book?) The God you portray is evil, pure evil, he isn't fair and is a complete **** head. Satan and anyone else can't rebel against God as God made everything and everyone, he made the rules and can unmake them AND he sees and knows the future.
So if God is God then he's all powerful and controls everything and your argument has no basis.
By the way I don't see myself as a sinner as God made me according to your argument and he made my flaws etc
I can't hate what doesn't exist.
You appear to pick and chose things. One minute you say God is God then you say there are rules and things which are outside his control... make your mind up! either he is God or he isn't.
Rights are something given to you (and can be taken away by someone else) he is all supreme if he is God. God doesn't have any rights because he is God he doesn't need them.
If he is God then he has already judged us and already knows the outcome so any conjecture or speculation is pointless so your idea that we can sin and have free will is blasphemous as is your judging of me.
How are my words contradictory? In answering your questions and countering your statements I am supposing that God exists as you claim, you are the one saying God exists... In truth though I'm not saying he does or doesn't just that there isn't a shred of evidence that he does. Also that supposed religious people make sweeping claims in this God's name, claims to which they have no basis or right to make. One minute you say God is all powerful then you say there are limits on his power, make your mind up. If God is a God then he knows the outcome and there is no need to judge. Also why would he need to judge us? we are his creations (according to you) PLUS isn't God suppose to be all forgiving, compassionate etc? Not putting up a good argument are you? seems to me that many of your comments are blasphemous and will land you in hot water when it comes to this judging of yours... o dear
I never said I was God, Satan, Santa Clause or Mr T...
Certainly NOT trying to brainwash you and I would be very interested if you could show me one place where I tried to get you to hate God..
I am asking you to consider some serious questions (NOT poking fun).
I am not saying there is a God or there isn't.
I am saying think for yourself, don't take other people's interpretation of God's words literally.
Especially on matters of sin, judging, free will, heaven, hell...
Finally (on God) I am saying that the Biblical version of God sitting in judgement on us mortals allowing death suffering, creating sin and free will etc IS bunk. But that's my opinion and my understanding.
(If you don't want to hear what I think etc stop answering me, your choice)
Now you are on to Jesus.... It's a shame his main instructions to us are so readily ignored... such as shun organised religion, think for yourself, love your neighbour, treat others like you wish to be treated, don't judge others, beware of false prophets, every child is precious to God, pay the taxes you owe and give God his dues, be vigilant God is near! Contrast what Jesus said with your 'extraction' of Sin, judgement, hell... what have you been reading?
my own... which consists of me, God (possibly) and Jesus (or what he actually said) and a few other sage pieces of advice I have picked up along the way.... so far... you?
