"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

God has a unique purpose for you Soul Friend! You were created on purpose for His purpose!

What purpose is that?

Heaven and hell are just another aspect of existence.

Is that really the end all be all?

What's the great big ending? Some supposedy supreme person telling us how we were good and bad in life?

Doesn't sound like such an amazing plan to me.

Sounds like something an abusive parent would dream up.

You know, if you don't agree, you could just stay out of the post. It's not like no one's ever asked these deep, penetrating atheist questions before.

If you are going to try to have a conversation with someone about their faith, calling their God a "Supposed supreme being and abusive" is not the way to go about it. It is offensive and very rude, which I think was your point to begin with.  You can get your point across without being offensive, once you figure out how to do that, then we can further our conversation. until then...


I hope you have a great day.

My favorite part is the "calamity" part. The omniscient, omnipotent god doesn't "plan" on or for calamity.

The whole ideology harbors massive contradictions, this being one of the more obvious ones. God receives admiration and worship for what we consider to be good things, and he gets to avoid divine blame when something happens we don't consider good. 

We just invent gods because we don't want to be one.

I hope you have a great day.

Are you saying that you have PROOF that god is in fact a supreme being?

Because I have PROOF that by our human standards, the god of the bible is abusive towards his "children." I also have proof that he is not all knowing or all powerful.

Until then, there's nothing really that off about what I said, just because it offends you...
