1. If one exists, they all exist: Nobody can actually prove or disprove the existence of your God. It is an emotional and spiritual thing. So I’ll meet you half-way and say your God, with a doubt, exists. But you have to meet me the other half and say that other gods exist as well. Believing in God is the same thing as believing in Zeus or Odin or Moloch or Vishnu or [insert any mythical god or creature].
Text4. YOU ARE NOT GOD: I am sick and tired of believers spouting out what they think God means or trying to interpret God's motivations. If you've ever said the words "what I think God meant by that was..." then you are the same kind of douche bag as the douche bag who said Hurricane Katrina happened because of "the gays". God is GOD and you're just a human being. Not only can you not begin to understand God's plan, you shouldn't even presume to try. To do so would be blasphemous (prideful). So if your child asks you why God lets bad things happen to good people your answer should be a humble shrug. Do not say that God is rewarding or punishing anybody because you can't possible know. YOU wanted to believe in Him. But part of the deal is that you have to admit He's all-knowing and all-powerful...and you are not.

Nobody cares what YOU are sick and tired of. I know I don't.
Also what kind of a lead is, " There is stuff in the Bible"? Do you consider at all how you sound when you post a sentence like that?
But men do these things. Men use belief systems to justify there actions. However I argue that those men aren't true Christians.

But you're already arguing from the stand point that you are a true Christian. That's not something we can tangibly prove. You believe you are. The other guy believes he is. Only the person who gets into heaven is right.
So in the meantime -- in the present here and now -- I think you both should be grouped together as Christians one and all.
