Ever since I was a little kid I've had this crazy idea that there are two gods, male, and female


And why not...the Old and New Testaments paint two different pictures... In the Old Testament, we're seeing a vengeful God who demands obedience...in the New Testament, we see the kinder, more loving God...kind of like a parent after they spank you...when they feel bad about it...

As for toppling God, assuming he exists, you'd also have to accept the supreme and final power over all of creation...the Alpha and the Omega...there is no "defeat" of it...it simply is...

"If you have questions that deal with the existence of God or want to ask if Mohammed actually was a real person or a myth, then please start a new discussion with a meaningful, appropriate title and you may then dominate a new discussion with this theme in mind. Please do not interject into deeper religious topics the question of the reality of a higher being? Unless stated in the topic, we are assuming in this forum that we've moved on past that point. Imagine discussing algebra while someone keeps interjecting that they still don’t believe in addition. The very reason that classes such as these have prerequisites is so new ground can be covered in the subject."

Fuzball ... here's how you bring God down

By not worshiping Him. It really gets him down.

Your post doesn't really equate with your statement. You can't bring down God in some sort of conflict or fight. He will win in the end.
You can dissapoint him, by not knowing him, turning your back on him, or outright challenging his authority.
The last two are what the angels did.
Satan, challenged God's authority in his jealousy over our creation. It is so sad, I see so many threads that ask questions about bible beleifs, and really all you need to do is open your bible. Read the first bit of Genesis, read the first bit of Job...there the issue of sovereignty are most clearly raised. (sovereignty = right to rule)
The angels are allowed freedom of choice just like we are...they can chose to remain in Gods love, or chose to dissobey him.
God is allowing the rebellions and dissentions in order that we, yes us his most precious creation to realize that we can't/don't want to live without Him, or outside his authority. He is allowing us and Satan time to prove that anyway we try we cannot rule ourselves justly.
Its that simple.
We Cannot Rule Ourselves Justly.
God allowes the rebellion to be kind. If He just thwarted Satan in the begining when enticing Eve to dissobey God, that wouldn't have been allowing freedom of choice. God wants us to chose to serve him, so, he is allowing Satan to have control of this world until WE prove to ourselves that we cannot live without Him. Imagine living the way God originally inteded for us...in a perfect world, with perfect bodys free of sickness and unlimited potential, forever dwelling as his companions.
Unless of course we desire the power and the glory for ouselves...then we have no place in his Kingdom.

So...we can't kill him, but only deaden our hearts and mind to him

It'd be well funny seeing someone try to work out a way to own a god, govts own you and god owns ya soul and you don't even know if he exists or where for that matter. The elusive gods, dodgy spirits dont even know where they are, tell ya wot, ill give ya a helpin hand, work out a way to beat a dodgy spirit then you are one achievement closer out of about ten million youd need to achieve to stand next to a god in a way where u are on equal presence

How would you bring down god?


Easy. Invent Atheism and convince everyone He doesn't exist.

No...never mind, that doesn't work!

God can't be brung down.

Lilutu I don't know what you said, but come on, God made that girl in your avatar.

You don't want to bring him down right?

Real question is why?

I don't want to.
