this in no way meant to be disrespectful but didn't Yahweh kill millions of his children? But i could swear there is some kind of rule thou shall not
kill? Is this where do as i say and not as i do originated from?
If you were a parent and your child disagreed with you or worshiped his friends parents better or got arrested for being a bad kid could you kill him?
If Yahweh can kill his own children and you are suppose to do the same so we prevent things like the Arizona shootings?
Why did Yahweh give man free will if he is not allowed to choose his own path? If Yahweh can kill because man disagrees or sees things differently is
that not a form of Totalitarian dictatorship?
I can go on but i think you understand what i'm trying to get at
I was born and raised Roman Catholic and was diehard and went to church and prayed every single night with my heart sand soul asking for world peace
and love to spread throughout but has gotten much worse so i asked a simple question - How can God kill his children so easily because things didn't
go as planned and how can things not go as planned if he is omnipresent and omnipotent and should've seen the outcome? Why did God favor Abel (which
you are not suppose to love one child more than another) when Abel raised and slaughtered animals (Yahweh own creations) yet Cain was a farmer and
never killed anything? Wouldn't it make more sense that Abel would be able to kill with no remorse rather than a farmer that never killed anything?
Anyway i realized if my parents were like Yahweh me and my brother and my friends would be dead before the age of 21.
I also realized i wanted a God that does not kill his own children and force man to believe through fear and punishment but rather a loving and
nurturing God to lean on through the dark times rather than a God of fear.
