Re: Growing pains
I am not sure what it takes.
You could try throwing us to the lions.
But that didn't really work, did it?

Re: Growing pains

Shall I get the biblical quotes for you that has god forcing the Israelites to smash the heads of babies on stones, killing all the non-virgin women and enslaving the virgins, or can you rethink without it?

Re: Growing pains
God punishes sin and idolatry very harshly. He isn't partial. He also punished Israel very harshly (in fact the incident you mention was their vengeance for having been treated the same way by their enemies). It's hard to understand how you all confuse the murder of innocents with the punishment of wickedness including the murders of innocents, but you do a bang-up job of it these days.

Re: Growing pains

Dear woman, please do the math for us.
How many Christians were killed by Rome before Constantine bought the church?
How many people did Christians kill after Constantine sent it out to destroy all other faithful as well as heretics that would not kowtow to Constantine's version of Christianity.
Christians helped usher in 1,000 years where freedom of religion was not allowed as well as their many Inquisitions.
Do the math and let us know just how many more lives Christianity took as compared to the few that Rome took of Christian lives.
Regards
DL

Re: Growing pains
The Catholic Church is not Christian, its murders were/are the work of Satan, its Inquisitions, its Crusades, the lot (the Inquisition is continuing in some third world Catholic countries today, hidden from view of course). Not that there aren't true Christians who are Catholics, I'm talking about the Institution, the papacy, the power structure, all the work of the devil.
ABE: The RCC is really the continuation of the Roman Empire that threw the early Christians to the lions. They transformed all Rome's pagan gods into Christian "saints" and kept all the pagan rituals and superstitions, just tacked on some of the Christian gospel here and there to confuse everybody.

Re: Growing pains

So thousand of years in hell is not enough punishment for your god and he also has to order baby's skulls smashed against stones to punish their parents.
Wow. And you like that prick. Wow.

"I'm talking about the Institution, the papacy, the power structure, all the work of the devil."
Yet you adore a baby murdering god whose morals are no better than a devil.
Have you no shame woman?

Re: Growing pains
I adore a God who is righteous and punishes the wicked while offering mercy to anyone who will take it.

Re: Growing pains
Yes and Nietzsche heralded the Antichrist who took partial form in Hitler too (a good Catholic by the way) As so many people do these days you confuse good with evil and evil with good. Satan postures as an "angel of light" most of the time, so you'll think he's God, offering you lifesaving research on the murdered bodies of the unborn for instance, as he made constructive use of the bodies of Jews by using their skin for lampshades and fat for soap; you see through that now of course, but it's definitely his style to do evil and call it good. Such as offering peace and goodness by denouncing Christian morality as the evil thing, which is only going to bring judgment down on people. Now he's got you all up in arms against God's severe punishments while he styles himself the compassionate one. Poor modernity, no idea what's happening, no idea what's coming, no idea why.

Re: Growing pains
So let's see if we can find your god by his morals as compared to Satan's.
Which one would ask you to accept having an innocent person suffer for the wrongs you have done, --- so that you might escape responsibility for having done them?
Would god ask that of you or Satan?
