Have you ever been involved in creating something yourself? There is a thing often referred to as the Muse, Inspiration, etc.
It is more like that, from what the Bible writers say themselves.
I get really amused when people actually want to make a point by saying things like "God did not hold the tablets and stylus, so..."
Artists and writers, musicians, sculptors and scientists all have been on record saying that inspiration comes from somewhere outside themselves. I
should take their word for it.
But if you create things of any kind, you will know what this is referring to.
It's just not a valid or even serious argument, imo.
Also, how could God not grasp our thinking? lol I don't think the Creator is puzzled by his own invention at all.
In fact, the Bible says plainly that God knows all the thoughts of man, the thoughts in his heart. It also says he knows how many hairs on on our

Why? All because of love, and your desire to see that service honored.
God feels love too, and the implications are pretty clear. All are allowed to come. But we aren't to be forced, but persuaded by love, by evidence
(historical documents), and by the word of those who tell how wonderful it is to have a relationship, not with a church or with Christian people, but
It's a no lose scenario. But God is gentle and honorable, He will let us make our own decisions, and we separate ourselves accordingly.
No need to blame Him or slander His words or ways. This is our choice.
