You claim to have been a Christian once. So. I used to be an athiest once. I even believed evolution through high school. When I was I child I believed childish things, when I grew up I put those things behind me.
Believing in it is not the same as understanding it. That is what you are asked to do and what you have obviously gone out of your way to avoid. You attack a strawman and not the actual science. So, again, not impressed by someone who is intentionally deceitful. and golly, a bible quote. Unfortunately for you, to actually do as you say, and if you wish to define evolutionary theory as “childish” by all means do so, you’ll have to put away your computer, your car, any reliance on modern medicine, your hybrized food, etc. All of that is based on the same science that supported evolutionary theory, the Big Ban theory, etc. I’m going to guess that you are too much of a liar and a hypocrite to actually put away all of the things that scientists have discovered and invented, to actually follow through on your claim.
I noticed that you’ve ignored all of those inconvenient verses about slavery and how much effort your god supposedly has put into making laws about something that you want to claim that it doesn’t like. You’ve also ignored my point about how your bible could be completely wrong. Funny how that is, Rhocam, you have no idea if you have the right religion at all since you have no idea it any of it is true since there is no way for you to know which parts are from this god and which parts are from humans.
You are unwilling to accept that God is willing to Love whatever we give Him to work with.
Nope, I’m not. I just know that your bible says you are a liar. God hates liars, God hates the “sexually immoral”, etc. All of them are condemned per your bible, to the lake of fire.
He created us in His own image. We have taken what He created, and dragged it down to what it is now.
Again, you fail, rhocam. First, there is no evidence of any god creating anything, especially your particular god. Please do show that man wasn’t created by any one of a thousand other creator gods that have been worshipped by humans. Second, your bible says that your god controls everything, correct? And he’s the one who either intentionally allowed the “snake” to talk to A&E and allowed them to eat of the tree of good and evil; or was too stupid to know that the “snake” was there and too stupid to know what would happen. Your god arranged for it, or was too stupid, for everything to play out like it supposedly has. So much for omniscience and omnipotence.
God did not create slaves. Man turned fellow men into slaves. You take what is now and imply that this is the way God made it. No God made it and it was good. We have taken what He created and made this mess of it. The Biblical truth of His desire to be a part of our lives is not unfounded. The Fact that He is still willing to offer salvation to us through His Son does not invailidate His work. It displays a vested interest in us.
God created everything right? Your bible says so, good and evil, Satan, etc. If he didn’t want it or need it, why make it? Your god is ultimately responsible for everything. Your god gave laws on how to deal with slaves rather than saying “Stop that!” Why is this, rhocam? Poor little god, can’t do a thing on his own and puny humans are more powerful than him. This god that supposedly could create a world, murder almost every human in flood, smites a man for daring to keep his magic box from falling over, conjure up plagues for Egypt, can’t stop slavery. Tsk, not much of a god.
I do enjoy when Christians depower their god to create an excuse and end up making their god ridiculous. He encouraged his people to take slaves, including young girls to use as sex slaves. Your god is a party to rape, Rho. Just read your bible. Numbers gives a lovely review of how your god was all about accepting war booty for his temple.
Rhocam, you’ve obviously never actually read your bible (or a science book). You’ve let other tell you what it says and they’ve lied to you. Your bible says that your god gives salvation on whim and intentionally damns people through no fault of their own. Read Romans 9, if you want to see. I’m sure you’ll turn your head away. This is not love, this is the actions of an abusive being. There is nothing in your bible that shows this being wants to do any thing to humans other than to control them or harm them. IF you think that is love, I feel sorry for you. I’m in love, with my husband, and I would *never* act the way your god supposedly does. It can’t even fulfill the bible’s own definition of love which is pretty funny.
I've prayed even after becoming a atheist, figuring on that any god that really was loving and really was concerned would give me at least as much evidence as he supposedly did in the bible. Funny how that never has happened. So, so much for your baseless claims.
I love this
Nice to see you devalue the suffering of millons now by calling it working. We still have to do what we don't want to do for people most don't even like
Yep, I'm sure your master beats you, and like TS said, makes you give him all of the money that you earned, paying you nothing, making you live on what he gives you to eat and were he makes you live. Why, if you try to run away, he'll beat you more or shoot or hang you! Or does he make you buy all the things you need to live from the "company store" and keeps you in the mines until that is paied off You have to everything they say, work when you are sick, even give your children to him so they can be put to work too.
Oh, how I love Christians when they show their true desperation.
Rho, wehre is your evidence for ID, dear. Or is it that you have none and are just one more lying creationist who is wsting our time?
