either god doesn't exist, he's not omnipotent, or he plans that thousands of children starve to death each day...thumb me down all you want, you know it's true.

If no one could suffer, then no one could cause suffering, and we would not have the choice to do wrong. Without the choice to do wrong, are we really choosing to do good? Or are we forced to.

Yeah man, like #25 said, God doesn't have to give a **** .

Can anyone accept that life with or without a god will be ****** either way?

I'm skeptical of the idea of any God, and even I know that's a piss poor argument. You're not asking for a merciful God, you're asking for a ******* paradise where nothing bad happens, ever. Sorry buddy, but you're being a bit greedy there.

Stop. Being. Militant.
Jeez, people like you give us a bad rap. Let people think what they want, it helps them cope with the fact that we're fragile meatbags on a rock hurtling through space at tit-flappingly fast speeds.

Just because a god exists, that does not mean he wil give all the mercy.

''...or he plans that thousands of children starve to death each day...''

Do you even read?

Yes, and your argument does not make sense, he made 3 assumptions and 1 of them you clearly did not read.

I'm detecting some samefag here, and also it's clearly obvious what he meant. Either God doesn't exist, he's not all powerful, or he just plans for children to suffer all day. And i'm talking about how he isn't merciful to everyone, just because he's a god.

Doesn't it kind of mean that when he claims to be perfect and merciful?

A story changes from person to person.

Also I'm quite sure that if god is well.. GOD he can do sin too, A.K.A. lie.

There is more than one religion with a god out there.

Not "a" God. God being perfect is a part of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. As far as I know, the other major religions have multiple Gods
User avatar #77 to #74 - choclategum (07/25/2013) [-]
Ok, so there is more than one religion with a god or gods out there. Besides that, just because he is merciful that doesn't mean he will give everybody mercy, just that he might forgive you and help out every once in a while if you pray. If you are talkikng about those religions.

I don't agree. That is the practical version of what the Bible says. The literal version says that God is perfect and merciful and all powerful. Plus there's the fact that absolutely terrible things happen to perfectly good people. Maybe you are okay with taking the Bible with a grain of salt, but I figure if one thing doesn't make sense, then why would any of it

>Doesn't understand one thing

>Well obviously the whole thing doesn't make any sense.

What kind of logic is that? And yes he's perfect, meaning in he does no wrong, he's all knowing, he loves his "children". The definition of perfect, but that doesn't mean that he has to save everyone every time they get in trouble or suffer. He's merciful like a judge is merciful, he might gtive you a chance of parole but that doesn't mean he's shortening that life sentence, you're still getting punished. And not every bad thing happens by his hand, satan is responsible for that. When those bad things happen to good people, that's satan, because why would a god want to hurt the people that obey him? He can only give them peace after the fact. There's tons of things in the bible that say that. He helps those who pray and who help themselves and even then that depends on whter he forgives you or not.

I think that if he's all powerful he should've gotten rid of Satan a long time ago. I understand about how powers are something humans can't comprehend and whatever but it seems like if that was the case, they shouldn't call God "all-powerful." Again, another I think the Bible is wrong about. Besides, it isn't that I don't understand it, it's that it's saying an all-powerful perfect God is okay with good people suffering. My mom is actually a very devout Christian and she said, "I don't see why people think that God is perfect. I mean, just take a look at the world around you, it should be obvious that it's not." Plus, imagine how suicidal people feel. If God is perfect, why can't they die? Some people will be depressed even if they win the lottery. I don't think a perfect God would let that happen. It's really a horrible feeling.

Hehe, watching two dumb asses ignorantly beating each other with their own POVs, try seeing the other ones for a change and come to a conclusion already!
