How great is god's love when you look at the atrocities he's committed, as listed in the opening thread? He is worse than a terrorist eliminating infidels.
Is it so hard to believe that Allah would have his followers eliminate infidels ?
Killed by God, in one day, for premarital sex (1 Corinthians 10:8)
Killed, at God's behest, for not giving God his due (Exodus 32:26-28)
Killed for being counted by David (1 Chronicles 21:1-14)
Killed by God for questioning Moses h – except a few on an ark
Comply or spend eternity in hell (Rom. 6:23, Rev. 19:ll-15; 20:8)
[/b]Not quite. You’re forgetting God's role. God sends us here and he takes us out of here. Millions go back to God every day. This doesn’t make him a murderer it makes him God. If you disagree with this, then you are saying that we should all live here on earth forever. Personally, I’d rather be in Heaven.
Christianity is terrorism.
No. Christianity is not terrorism. Try reading the scripture.
Matt 22:36-39 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
Why would a loving god speak in riddles that need to be comprehended if we are to avoid spending an eternity in hell ?
To get people to pursue him. Reading scripture can never explain God. God has to be experienced to be understood.
Jer 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
I have felt terrorised by that possibility (hell) all my life. I fear for the consequences of questioning it now.
Perhaps this is your problem. God did not give us a spirit of fear.
II Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and a sound mind.
Fear drives us away from God. This is why you cannot understand.
I John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear has torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
I John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
I John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
Try working on your relationship with God instead of going to war with him. You might get farther.
Try reading this instead of posting the same crap over and over again.)
