he dosn't even care if your just a young inocent child that dosn't even know what he or she is really doing.

There is SO MUCH removed from the original chronicles...
Perhaps a research project need be started.

I would like to know however, if God is evil then what is good? Or if God says something is evil but you say it's not, then you are better than God and know more than him? How is that? Or say nothing is evil, people are just people and will make mistakes. Well if nothing is evil, then how can God be evil?
At what age do you lose that innocency?
If a child grows up a theif or anything else, trust me...they know what they are really doing.

....obviously if i can think up this concept god has allready thought of this as well thus validating my point that the bible god isn't real.
also personally i dont believe in the concepts of good an evil. but many christians do so thats why i put things in the terms of good and evil.
in the bible, young infants are murdered at the hands of god and for what reason?
first off if god is so loving why would he create a fiery pit of torment and despair for all the so called sinners to rot in for all eternity. wheres the love in sending your children to an eternity of torment because they may have made a few mistakes with thier lives or where raised to believe in something else.
why would god allow satan to lead his children astray. i mean satan suposidly tried to overthrow god and yet he is able to run about and corrupt his children. yet if you are one of the so called sinners you'll imediately go to hell when you die. it seems to me that god is probally in allegiance to the prince of darkness.
next there is the whole concept of sin. from what i gather, sin is basically an act that pisses god off. but it seems to me that most everything pisses god off like sex, homosexuality, drugs, dancing, rock music, and other things of that nature.
it seems the only thing he is ok with is the submission of his children to the very restrictive christian life. it seems to me that god is very irritable and closed minded to his own very creation. then you have all the horrible things he did in the old testament to punish so the so called sinners by causing plauges, wars, and mass genocide. he dosn't even care if your just a young inocent child that dosn't even know what he or she is really doing. if you have any connection to sinners, you will die a horrible death and goto hell because god said so.
now wait, in the bible it says he so "loved" the world that he sent his only son to die for the forgiveness of our sins. sadly this is far from the truth. why exactly does he have to send his only son to die one of the most horrible deaths imaginable just so we can be forgiven. if god is all powerfull why dosn't he just forgive us himself. so jesus died and now were all forgiven or so it seems. the only way to be forgiven for your sins is to accept jesus as your savior and reject sin for the rest of your life.
and what about those that never heard of jesus or were raised in another religion (suposidly created by satan). well if there was no way to find out about jesus or you were raised to believe in something else, too fricking bad for you. and what about children that die unbaptised or died too young to know anything about children. well your god will send them to hell regardless cause i guess he just loves us like that. and what do you get anyways for living a sinless life and accepting jesus. an eternity of praying to your god in submission. how is that any better than hell aside from burning in a lake of fire?
so why worship such an evil god? if you only serve this god out of fear of what he might do to you, then you my friend are nothing but a coward. sorry. thankfully you have nothing to worry about my christian brothers. well first off lets take a look at the bible. its riddled with contradictions within itself and also contradictions with science and history. also there are plenty of people that have had near death experiences and have encountered god for themselves. what they found was not an evil god at all but a infinitely loving god. and its not straight christians that have encountered this loving god either. people from all sorts of religious backrounds and different sexual orientations have enountered a loving god as well as those who have lead a suposidly "sinfull life".
