I told him to shut up.
Well! It wasn't my fault, he should have learned English instead of speaking in that bloody middle-eastern tongue of his....

Oh don't be pathetic. They know exactly what they do. They are having a good mock. Which I have to say is very therapeutic.

God needs to learn to take a joke.
Originally posted by dj2beckerIf God wants to be feared, then He is little more than a bully. If God wants to be respected, He should start acting in a manner deserving of respect.
God is not like a buddy. He needs to be feared and respected.
Proverbs 9:10 - The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
Proverbs 8:13 - The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

People don't have respect for your God because He comes across as a petty and jealous tyrant.
Originally posted by dj2beckerHey, if God wants to be feared, then what is there that needs to be known about his character? I hear Napolean also wanted to be feared...
Obviously He would come across as thus to those that do not know Him and are so full of themselves that they are blind to his true character.
