Ya thats right...
He's just a figment of the brainwashed religious nutjobs with
overactive imaginations right?
I understand your POV.
Just really glad we are NOT on the same page though.
This is called an opinion.....just like yours.
In that we are on the same page!
Have you ever seen the movie "Crossroads"?
I am a professional musician and I know for a fact this stuff happens.
Not something you want to mess with. IMO
Keep God first in your heart.
He will deal with the devil.
Sorry to sound all preachy if you think I do!
I don't get it... How can you follow both at the same time? God allows slavery, but Jesus doesn't. God allows the stoning of children, but Jesus doesn't.
If it is such a quandry, may I suggest just asking God or Jesus?
The only contradictions are the ones man's feeble mind cannot see through and realize mans interpretation may be inadequate.
If you have not read and understood the bible, how would you know
whats in it?
If he exists and I exercise my freedom of choice to *not* worship a deity who vengefully commits genocide of an entire world because they too exercised their freedom of choice to also not worship him, then I will be forever punished for all eternity in what sounds to me to be the most horrid of punishments I can imagine. If you wish to call 'worship me or forever be punished' a form of freedom, then in my opinion you are no different than one who sympathizes with a tyrannical dictator or one who stays in an abusive relationship constantly making excuses for why you get beaten when you don't do as your told.
You do not have to worship anyone!
Only trust him and his infinite wisdom.
He rarely answers me but if I am open to him,
he will put the answer in my head almost instantly now.
It took a long time to achieve this.
I had to learn to only thank him and be humble for a long
time before my questions ever started getting answered.
I think he wanted to make sure my heart was in the right place.
I am glad you were able to experience a little when you was small.
Too bad it left a bad taste.
Have you heard that anything good, takes work?
The bible is actually very different from mythology.
He has done nothing to man except what he only has to.
It is always for our betterment as hard as this is to see.
Man chooses his walk in life, even if that walk is evil.
Really, so we can ignore the first commandment now? What else can I ignore?
I don't have the patience nor time for playing the waiting game. Life is just simply to short to wait around and play head games. I mean for crying out loud, he can create an entire universe out of nothing, but he can't make himself explicitly known to all of creation without a shred of doubt existing at all?
Well, it wasn't so much that it left a bad taste, it was more to the effect that if this isn't the only fairytale then how can I accept the validity of it as being any more real than all the other religions that this fairytale says aren't real.
Yes, and I am a firm believer of this, but I really don't see the connection there.
Whoa, back up there... Is someone forcing him to act contradictory? He *has* to create us so that he can commit genocide against us and threaten to do so again in the future? That makes no sense to me at all. Why would he *have* to commit genocide or kill innocent infants? I mean fine... I'll give him all the adult killings, but he *had* to kill infants?
I fail to see how genocide and baby killing is for our betterment. Sounds more like what a tyrannical dictator would do to keep the population in check.
Then why allow evil to exist at all? What purpose could evil possibly serve if God knows that he will do away with it in the future because he despises it? Why let it come into being if he already knew ahead of time? He does know and see all right? Or is he just lying to us saying that he does, wouldn't be the first time he lied
You come across as arrogant in your assumption that you know the truth/"god".
I've ran into people like you numerous times and the more I experience life the more I realize how delusional you people are
Only 1 in a million of you "christians" even have the slightest idea of what your "savior" was trying to get across to his disciples.
You articulate nothing about truth or this "god" you claim you are knowledgable about.
Your smugness of what you think is truth/"god" is deeply rooted inside your ego that was created by man.
If you actually were one with "god" you wouldn't be on ATS un-articulately explaining so. You wouldn't even try to explain, you would simply go in to the world and just "do".

Uh, just found some interesting new science for you creationists.
Some one brought up the "science haven't been able to make a living cell" argument at some point, but i really don't wanna wade through all the ignorance, and much less give the person points by replying to him/her.
As you can see, we are working on it. Science is about change, religions are about stagnancy
Over the next five years, Organogenesis expects to continue to pioneer regenerative medicine by completely automating the manufacturing process using robotics. This is expected to be a first within the field.
This new era may see the successful regeneration of entire appendages (e.g. fingers). (20 years in the future)
You completely missed my point.
Um, I dont think thats how he rolls!
But you could always ask him, with a sincere heart.
I doubt that is possible, now. Sorry.
I am sorry you feel that God is somehow bad.
I wont try to explain this anymore, all I can do is hope you find the
answers you seek.
You believe that God is bad and no one especially not me could change your mind.
I know huh! Religions are pretty out there sometimes!
But there are millions who know God is in their lives without any doubt.
Are you completely, always right and they are all completely, always wrong about their faith?
What gives you the right anyway, thinking you
know what happens in their life!
And if God has revealed himself to them or not?
You seem very inqusitive and smart,
dont tell me you really think that, do ya?
Great! Then you also know that any great relationship takes work, right?
Back up to where?
I am truly sorry I cannot explain this better.
Please take no heed to this.
He has to do nothing.
He only cares whats best for us in the long term.
I know you wont understand and just consider it my fault
for my sucky explanation. I am sorry for that.
Genocide and baby killng?
Wow, nuff said there how mixed up and hatefull you have become.
Somehow you continually blame God for mans evil. Very Sad indeed.
Carry on in your life. I do wish you the best.
Um, I think you missed the memo about the test!
You know the one about what is evil 101?
How can we appreciate the good if we havent experienced the bad???
That is our test and reason for being here in the first place.
