Show me one of my incorrect thinkings and I will change my view.
OK, how about this:
You said on this thread that Xians suffering for others' sins is "collateral damage."
Why is this? Is it that...
...your god incapable of more precise, more just punishment?
...your god can't tell an xian from a non-xian from such a distance?
...your god thinks punishing a just man for the sins of the unjust, is just?
because it looks to me like the god you revere is a fucking asshole, based on that "collateral damage" statement alone.
So please defend how a kindly, benevolent god can punish his faithful followers for the sins of others and still be called kindly and benevolent, OR change your view to something more resonable/correct.
