I love Courage, too, but that particular picture of Courage was Woofs' avatar. If you want to be taken seriously, here, you need to change it.

I have no idea who the character is but no, I don't agree.

I don't think that the people here are so small-minded or judgmental.

I have faith.

RE: GOD IS LOVING AND MERCIFUL
The alleged existence of Hell undermines any claim regarding God's mercy.

Incidentally, it also makes a hash of any appeal to free will in explaining the Problem of Evil.

I can't begin to explain how sick and twisted your vision of love must be if you think that jealousy and love always go together. In fact any relationship where one partner is jealousing his or her partner leads inevitably to abuse. Jealousy go together with mistrust, suspition, insecurity, fear and greed more than anything else.

I already explained. When God says that He is jealous He doesn't talk about mortal man feelings. God is jealous = God loves.

If God killed people and never gave them life back He would be evil.
But God ACCORDING to His word gives life back.
If you kill someone you are evil because you can not make restitution. You can not give life back to that person.
When a parent punishes a child by taking away something he is not evil because he will give it back later.
Death is not the end of the road. When God destroys my physical body He does NOT destroy my spirit or my soul. If God destroyed my body and my soul He would be evil. I would hate Him.

No, god knowingly created sin.
Really? which one? give me the name of the sin that God created?

Not exactly. He knows past, He knows present, He PROGNOSES future very, very well.

No, He didn't. But He believed that it will happen 99.9%.
If Adam and Eve chose not to partake God's plan would fail. Adam and Eve would live in the garden of Eden forever and ever without progression. They would never return to God to His Celestial Kingdom.

Jealousy is natural. Extreme jealousy is not normal. Extreme jealousy means there is something wrong with you.

You don't consider God to be an extremely jealous entity?

When someone threatens you of death for betraying, disrespecting or doubting him, this is the textbook exemple of extreme jealousy don't you think?

God's jealousy means "God loves His children".
I am not sure that His love is extreme but I know(according to the revelations) His love is perfect.

Except that jealousy is a human emotion. Can you explain in simple terms why an all-powerful being would be jealous of anything or anybody?

All of them. According to the three monotheisms, Yahweh created everything. Indeed, in Isiah 45:7, he acknowledges creating evil.

So he doesn't know everything, then? Got it.
