I am a "Christian" and I take a huge offense to your post. Have you ever read Proverbs? Sorry, but I took the read pill when I got saved.
Unfortunately there are a lot of"Christians" who, like you who took the blue pill and are a prime example of why there are so many christian bashing
threads. My personal belief is that the Matrix is satans kingdom. If you could possibly think for one moment as a beliver that God could do that to
his people than why are you a christian at all. Might as well join up with satan, because I could not worship a God like that. Sure God does and
doesn't do alot of things i don't agree with, but he does as promised, revel the truth to those who seek it.
Although I respect your views, I have to disagree with them. There are so many contradictions and inconsistencies with the interpretation of God and
what He represents in modern religion. If you do believe in God as described by the major religions of today, then you have to accept the conclusion
that God allowed Satan to exist, God allowed Satan to deceive, God allowed his creations the potential to suffer and cause suffering to others. God
MUST have known that Free Will would lead to many of his creations experiencing suffering.
Think of it like this:
"Let's say I am a farmer and decide to build my own farm. I begin "creating" animals of all types until I am satisfied with my creations. I find
that the different animals only interact with each other and make no effort to interact with other types of animals...I think you get the picture
where I am going with this. So imagine one day I decide to put a fox in the same enclosed area with a chicken and a goat. The chicken is scared, but
sees the goat eating grass and feels safe because he figures so will the fox. The chicken decides thus NOT to fly away out of the enclosure and
moments later is pounced on and torn to bits by the fox.
As the creator, I do not feel remorse because I gave the chicken ample opportunity to leave the enclosure, but he chose to stay. Although I knew it
was very likely the fox would murder the chicken, the fox made a decision and so did the chicken. Even though I was the one who pushed the hands of
fate for the occasion to occur, I cannot be blamed for the actions of the fox because I gave both Free Will."
Not the best example, but I think you can see what I am trying to get at. God may be omni-X but He has no right judging his creations after allowing
them to be subjected to doubt, suffering and evil.
