If you didn't mean to be arrogant then you should consider your words before offering such blanked statements.
Your statement that "only pride can say such words." is transparently incorrect. The question "Is that really your loving God?" in relation to
the issues you mention can easily come from someone seeking to understand the position taken here by those with a belief in God and have nothing
whatsoever to do with pride. To question
whether this may be otherwise is perfectly acceptable, that may be the case; to make the assumption
that your conclusion must
be the correct and absolute though is grossly indulgent and short sighted.
Reading the opening post it seems you are determined to see any
questioning directed toward what is for you such a personal matter as
aggressive in it's intent. Where is it said that when one offers a different perspective or points out possible flaws and weaknesses with a
premise/thought or brings questions to the table their actions should automatically be taken to infer a stance fundamentally opposed to the core of
that which they question? This sounds more like paranoia than insight.
Questioning something in order to understand it better is hardly to be considered negative. To instantly dismiss a question simply due of an
choose to place upon it is either arrogant or crass.
When you see people asking questions I would advise you to take your own advice:
Don't judge him until you find out his motives.
