I'd like to ask in a non-aggressive manner: What part of the word 'God' don't any of you understand?
No, there is no god. Not in the way most people perceive him. He ( IT ) might be a natural force, without thought, but these biblical gods are nothing
but ink on paper.
You derailed the whole thread to rag on others for having faith in God.
I was actually enjoying this whole discussion about people's different experiences about their communications with God.
So I'm guessing you haven't had any experiences like those we were talking about.
I'm not ragging on anyone. I'm questioning how the bible shows this god's clear communication with humans, but in real life people are vague, unsure,
misconstrue the message, and don't even know if it's the devil talking to them. Doesn't that seem quite odd to you? Of course not, because since you
believe in this god you will justify him no matter how illogical your argument is.
As for derailing the topic, I've done nothing of the sort. YOU are derailing it by turning this conversation into a personal assault because you can't
come up with a logical argument. You just want to believe. You just want to believe that people hear this god no matter how ridiculous that message
is. Did you believe that Jesus told Oral Roberts to collect more money from his followers? To build a city?
Pat Robertson claimed that Haiti was punished by this god. Do you believe he understands god?
How about AIDS? Ministers claimed this was a god's punishment for gay people. Do you believe that?
So, what powerful message has this god relayed to you? Is it something you couldn't possibly have thought up all on your own? I seriously doubt it.
