You probably believe what you've written, but honestly -- we're told we must accept responsibility for our actions and I'd expect any god worth
listening to to be prepared to do likewise
Most people are sick and tired of this bulldust about 'spiritual war'. If humans are God's creations, then he's responsible for their actions,
not the humans themselves. If I bake a cake and use inferior methods and ingredients so that the cake is a failure -- then who's fault is that
failure -- the cake's fault ? No. It's my fault. I made that cake. It's the same with humans both 'good' and 'bad'
We creatures are merely links in a very long chain. We don't get to choose our genes, our DNA, yet they're responsible not only for our physical
appearance, but also our personalities, our 'characters', our health be it great or poor, our intelligence, etc. etc.
When the sperm fertilizes the egg -- right at that very split-second of conception -- our futures are determined. That's right -- our entire future,
including our adult height - the colour of our eyes and skin and hair - our bone structure - our teeth be they good or poor -- our personality, our
'character', our intelligence - the way we walk - the sorts of hobbies we might adopt - our artistic leanings or not - etc. etc. etc.
The tendency towards homosexuality often runs in families. So does criminality. So does obsessiveness. So does a tendency to lie, etc. etc.
It really doesn't matter what science has to say. It works to its own and other's agendas as do religions. Science changes its mind from week to
week. Most of it is theory, i.e. - is 'opinion'
The truth lies in observation --- hundreds, thousands of generations of people who observed -- long before 'screens' took over the world and
people's attention. And observation -- unlike 'science' -- can be relied upon, because observation by observant humans has no agenda, unlike
science. And people (based upon countless generations of observation and experience) are able to say, with firm authority, ' Like father, like son'
for example. And this applies to sons who've been raised apart from their fathers -- sons who were not influenced in any way by their fathers, other
than via inherited genes and DNA -- sons whose fathers died before they were born, or who deserted their mothers before they were born and who never
interacted with their sons
So we are merely links in long, long chains. We inherit what we are from those who came before us and from all the millions who form each person's
As such, we are victims of our genes and DNA. We cannot change them. We are not responsible if we inherited 'violent' genes, or dishonest genes --
any more than we can help it if we inherited 'ugly' genes or genes for flat feet or low intelligence
Then we have children who were abused and totured as children and who go on to become brutal killers
What sort of god would deny responsibility for all this ? What sort of god would demand strict obedience to his ALLEGED laws from someone with
sub-normal intelligence or poor genes or upbringing ? Only an IRRESPONSIBLE god would toss responsibility on the failed product, the failed
Religion has blamed the victim throughout
Religion says the failed-cakes will be held responsible for their failure and will be burned to crumbs in ' hell '
Nonsense ! Utter nonsense !
If there is a god worth knowing, it will beg forgiveness of the failed cakes
That's right. If God is any god at all, it will beg forgiveness from humans for making them live on this planet/dimension. Because this is a
blood-drenched hell filled with suffering -- a place where almost everything, in order to survive, must do so at some other creature's expense
Religion concocts nonsensical fables, such as the one you've posted -- filled with even MORE suffering, blame, warfare, opposing sides
It suits a certain type of personality to believe this sort of authoritarian garbage. They like it. It appeals to them. And they never miss an
opportunity to use it to gain a gram of power by trying to scare others into believing the same horrific garbage
Naturally, those pushing these hell and damnation threats believe THEY will be on the 'winning side'. Just like football and baseball games, huh ?
NO. That's not how it is at all. And anyone with half a mind will see right through it to the disturbed minds behind
Earth is a tough ride. It's painful. And God will surely apologise to all those condemned to experience it. Almost certainly, part of that apology
will be reward - REGARDLESS of how that human was forced to spend his sentence on earth as a brute or murderer or sadist or harmless, helpless idiot
(which describes most of us)
Now consider that and take it back to your favourite Hell and Damnation Football Game type preacher, thanks
