He must have a secret war with gays then, since he doesn't condemn killing gays.
Also a secret war with people working on Sunday.
Interesting, I was sure there was a god that said LOVE YOUR ENEMY.
Well loving someone to the point of killing him, now it makes perfect sens.
He doesn't have a war with any person. He hates sin because He is Holy. When Joshua asked the captain of the host of the Lord,
"Joshua 5:13,14 .....Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
And He said, Nay; .......
In other words God is not for one or the other, He doesn't want any to perish. He made a way for all to escape the punishment. But He will never allow sin to enter into Heaven no matter who it is.
Lolol, Chuck, you have the most closed mind I've ever witnessed. Open your mind, your life will improve, I promise.
My life has never been better since I gave it to theLord. Of all the things I used to do, when I thought that Christians were boring and in bondage, not realizing that it was me that was in bondage to sin, now I have more true joy and peace than I could have imagined. I laugh more than ever. But I also morn for those that are unwilling to taste and see that the Lord is good. Because they are blinded by the Prince of this world.
I would like to ask what is it that you believe happens when this life is over?
Chuckster, I have a couple of questions for you.
So, those who accept your jesus get to spend eternity in your heaven and those who reject your jesus spend that same eternity in hell, right?
Once there, do humans lose the free will your god endowed them with?
They have the choice in this life not the next.
So free will is taken away after death, eh? No choice after that? That sure sounds like slavery to me. With no choice, behavior is autonomic, it is involuntary. No matter how benevolent the slave master is, s/he is still a slave master.
Wrong, if people knew that they had another chance after this life there would be less people to turn to God because they would commit the crimes to basically avenge themselves or just simply to get something they want Then worry about salvation in the next life. Everyone has the ability to seek the Lord with all their heart in this life. And if God is true (the if is for you) then He can't lie, so He has to reveal Himself to those that are true in their hearts.
You said you have no free choice after death. Are you reneging on that?
Personally, I don't have that choice after life because I think there is nothing after this life...yet, I do not commit crimes. Interesting, eh?
You most likely don't commit crimes because of the knowledge of right and wrong that is within you. But having morals doesn't exclude you from breaking God's laws either. After all are you going to tell me that you have never lied nor taken something no matter how small that didn't belong to someone else?
Not since i was a child, it likely explains why im poor (i dont lie to the government like others in my situation do so i got less money) and been single for 13 years tought to have a truely honest religionship. You should try honesty sometime.
All it takes is one lie to be condemned. But I suppose that you think that if there is a God that He has to forgive you the way you think He should. But He knows what it truly takes to bring someone to a place where they are also willing to forgive others even if the other one has done them a great injustice. Man's heart is evil above all else. Unless you give it to another that can overcome evil. That is Jesus.
Oh and what about hatred?
This is something your bible has truely got wrong. Thinking or feeling something like hatred is not wrong only actions can be judged.
Lol hatred is a sin that means EVERY SINGLE THEIST IS GOING TO HELL they hate lgbt they hate other religions they hate other denominations of their religion and they hate atheists oh and some hate women that much is obvious from the bible and the quran.
Nope your wrong again, but let me explain, it is not wrong to hate the things Satan uses to deceive people into living a life that is on a course leading to Hell. If you read my post you would see that I was talking about hating somebody. In other words a person. I don't hate any of man kind. Some of the things that Satan uses is sin, false religions that do not have the plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. For That is the only name given among men under Heaven by which you must be saved. There is not one person including the terrorists that I don't want saved. Unfortunately most people are going with those things because it feels good to the flesh. By the way God hates those things also.
Look surely you are aware that your whole religion says you can do what the fuck you want as long as you accept jeasus and confess before you die.
Wrong again, you most likely don't realize that grace which became the new dispensation from the time Jesus gave His life for us, is more strict than the law.
You see as the law is concerned you actually have to commit the crime. For instance you had to perform the act of adultery in order to be guilty. Under grace you simply have to think about it, and you have committed adultery in your heart. To be guilty of murder under the law, you had to literally kill someone. But under grace you simply have to have hatred within you to be guilty.
Wether you think it or do it you get forgiven for simply accepting jeasus and confessing.
No if you deliberately commit the crime God will chastise. And H is chastising can be much more grievous than what our earthly father could do.
No the whole fucking point of the jeasus shit is so that man can go oops sorry god and bingo hes forgiven.
You clearly dont understand your own religion you should go away and read the whole book not just the bits your priest tells you to.
Week minds that get mad and have to cuss to show strength. Why don't you use words that at least make it seem that you want peace. I stand on the Bible if my Pastor does or not.
Im scottish fuck is part of my cultural language it does not show weakness thats an unproven assumption that holier than thou types use.
No it's weakness. You just simply use others as an excuse. I have scripture on it being a week mind
1 Timothy 6:3-4 KJV
If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;  He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
That's also like saying that a German has to be a drunk because He is German. God has saved a lot of drunks and turned their lives around. And saved many homes because of it.
Lol your book claims it so must be true bullshit its an unproven assumption.
Do i really have to remind you yet again men wrote the bible men with their own prejudices.
You must not have read my other post on why man wouldn't have written the Bible in truth.
*sigh* Moving on.
God only condemns what the church wants him to. The pope and hitler ring a bell?
Not. Jesus is the head of the church. And He will not accept any one changing His word. Like I said before everyone that claims to be a Christian, is not. And the Catholics have a lot of things that are not true to God's word.
