When I think of God, I think of God as somebody who doesn't want to make it too obvious to people that he is in fact 'real'
I don't think of Source as somebody. I think of it as something. An idea, rather than an actual entity. Why do you people always have to talk about it
like it's an actual person or something? It's a lot deeper than just a person. It's not even remotely human. Nowhere close. What's with the constant
need to give it anthropomorphic features? It's never been described as human, so why refer to it as though its human?
If he were to tell everybody on this planet that he is real that would completely defeat the purpose of his entire game so to speak. Why?
Because if everybody knows he is real, everybody would try to change the way they act so they could have eternal life with him.
If it were the "God" of the Bible, I'm fairly certain I would devote my life to his destruction. The same with Saddam Hussein and Hitler.
God doesn't want those who 'act' he wants those who are actually 'real decent people' to enter his kingdom. That's why it all comes down to
We don't rely on faith to calculate the trajectory of our spaceships, to build the airplanes and cars that transport us, to design the computer that
help us communicate, or to cook the food that is distributed to thousands of customers worldwide. That's not faith, that's science.
Your child is bad, so you tell them if you be a good boy I will buy you a Xbox 360 next month so they act on their best behavior all month
only to start acting up all over again straight after receiving their Xbox.
That's a poor analogy, because you don't know everything about your child. Stop pretending to have the least bit understanding of what it's like to be
an omniscient, omnipotent being. Being a human parent is NOTHING compared to that. NOTHING.
Nobody is perfect but God loves all of us. As for the Bible, I believe in it but I also believe that it could have possibly been re-written so
I look at the Bible as 'black and white with shades of gray', gray being the truth.
Ha! HAHAHA!!! Here's an excerpt from another thread, quite pertinent to the subject at hand:
If your beliefs are true then god created evil, set evil free, and creates life that will succumb to evil so he can damn the seduced to burn
forever or burn a while then become nonexistant.
screw that god
I dont surround myself with lunatics why would I bow to one?
^ That really sounds loving to me. I have a human mother, who is GAY, who acts more compassionate than that. Sorry, but actions speak far more to me
than words do, and your Bible's records of this "God" have imparted everything I need to know!
