Hope you fare better than your The Matrix namesake:




I'm a Christian (Don't worry not a Southern Baptist) in an atheist forum. God knows how long I'll last (haha banter)

It depends on how intellectually honest, respectful of disagreement, tolerant of strong dissent, and humble you are.

I would point out to you that the person who has the highest Reputation rating on our site (that I've seen, anyway) is a Christian... check out the profile of Kingschosen.

Welcome... but I have to ask... where did you get this omni-benevolent thing?

Moreover, why is this a thing? And, why does it keep popping up in Christianity?

Also, you don't believe in omnipotence... that's... different?

The concept of omnibenevolence stems from two basic ideas of God: that God is perfect and that God is morally good. Therefore, God must possess perfect goodness,
according to Christianity, but biblically I never saw any verse which supported this, its more like an assumption made by all Christians

Oh no. He's here - God

RE: Hello there.. I'm Cypher
Not all Christians... or better yet, Christians that actually read the Bible. God is clearly not omni-benevolent in scripture.

Welcome. Smile

Genesis 1:26 refers to both "image" and "likeness," which seems to me like a reference to both concrete and abstract characteristics, or possibly as two different interpretations of the same narrative, which were later compiled together into the book of Genesis.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
