"Whilst you have such a close relationship with god could you have a little word with him about the horrendous suffering he allows to not only continue but escalate every day, could you have a word with him about the catholics raping children in his name and covering it up at the highest level, get him to clarify his feelings on women, gays, war, slavery, mutilating childrens genitals, what days you can eat fish on,how long your beard should be and for what reasons you can hit your wife. "
You seem to be mixing up man and god.. If you were a man writing a piece of the bible you'd sneak in a few bits about how women should cook you breakfast every morning, or similar..
The world is Satan's dominion and the things in it are false.

Can I do that too? Pick and choose what is man's word and what is God's word from the Bible? Hand me an Exacto Knive, I've go work to do!

You can try all you want to describe a sunset to a blind person, but they will never understand its beauty.
There was a study where a bunch of great minds got together and tried to answer the question, "What is wrong with the world?" They all came up with all these reasons and one of them just said "I am"
I didnt understand this at first but later that day i took a little sauce tray from a restaurant with my to-go box. Then i went to the auto parts store to buy a trailer hitch. The guy at the store said I should get one with a lock because people like to steal them. I said "Thats so lame that i even have to worry about people stealing my hitch" But as the words came out of my mouth, i remembered taking the sauce tray and remembered the study and the guy saying "I am" and it all made sense.
The world gets no better by pointing fingers but only fixing your own actions. You talking about how horrible the world is but you are part of the problem.
You may disagree but in the eyes of a sinless God, sin is sin is sin.
Dont worry about the law in the bible, only love God and love your neighbor as yourself.

i agree with you yes the bible was made by man trying to control other people putting in things that they wanted for themselves, you'd think the all powerful all seeing god would have stepped in and said woah hang on a minute i never said any of this this is slander.... woah there why are you mutilating your childrens genitals, wtf is all this killing the first born of the other religious people, why are you stoning gay people and rape victims, but nope no god stepping in no prayers being answered no big man in the sky watching over us, our judgement and morals come from the society around us bible not necessary you hurt, kill rape or mame your community will have plenty to say about it. do it in the name of religion however different matter
