Let me ask you all one question - IF God was proven to exist beyond any doubt, would you follow Him?
.....If God really exists, if we have all really sinned against Him, and if His Son Jesus is really the only way to heaven, then aren't you fearful?
No. And Yes. In that order.
You see, its not enough that your god be proven to exist for me to follow it. Sure - belief
would come - if your god were proven in the same way as cheese or Nelson's Column or whatever - then it'd be ridiculous not to. But to follow it? Worship
it? Sorry, but those do not necessarily follow, it would depend on what your god is actually proven to be.
Without your god appearing to each and every person and explaining its action, and answering our questions, all we have is the information given in the Bible - which , as Velkyn and others have said, is regularly contradictory. But what DO we know, those of us bereft of Yahweh's direct revelation? I'll just touch on one for now.....
That salvation comes at his whim, regardless of what we do, something you have asserted yourself to be the case. Lets say I do everything the way he wants it - am I guaranteed a place in his heaven? If so - and I have the unfettered ability to do those things - then you are wrong, and salvation rests entirely on my actions. Result? Yahweh cannot be described as good.
The alternative is that I can NOT assure my salvation, despite doing everything "right"...which means salvation comes at Yahweh's whim and will be granted to him, but not to him, despite them having lived identical lives. Result? Yahweh cannot be described as good.
So whichever way you cut it, your god isn't good - and that is immediately reason enough not want to follow him. But there's more....
There is a state which humans can acheive where they are fitted for heaven. An omnipotent god could have created each being IN that state, thus ensuring that nobody ever suffered for all eternity. But he didn't - so he is not good.
Your god sets stringent conditions on how to earn salvation - one of which is "belief in Christ". Belief in something undemonstrable is NOT under my control, nor under yours - I can prove that to you if you wish. So your god sets conditions for salvation that may simply be impossible to acheive, despite the will being there. So he is not good.
Are you seeing a pattern yet?
On to your next question - do I fear? Fortunately not, because I have no reason to suppose that your chosen god from the thousands I could choose from is "really real". Do YOU quake in your boots at night, wondering what Shiva will do to you when you die? Are you wracked with guilt that your heart may be too heavy on the scales of Anubis? Of course you don't - so neither am I fearful of your randomly chosen deity.
But if your god were proven to exist? Yes, I'd fear - because for all the reasons I've given above, your god is NOT good, in any way that I understand it. And as I try to be good, as I understand it, my choice would be to abase myself before something I believed to be wrong, or suffer the consequences of opposing a being who has shown himself to be vengeful, wrathful, and more than happy to consign people to torment for all eternity, just for disagreeing with him
I hope that I would have the strength to stand up and say "no", rather than become a collaborator for fear of saving my own skin.
And I'll leave YOU with THIS thought......
Why would a good and loving god who wants the best for his creation and is worthy of our love and respect and worship.....why would such a creature have any need to make me "fearful"?
