Why not ? It's the command of god , you are questioning the command of your god ?

The command does not cohere with what God has said.

God is the cause of me believing in Him. Without God, I would not believe in Him.

What caused you to believe in someone you believe in?

Is it not the person you believe in?

But it's not circular reasoning, according you you.

God caused me to believe in Him. You would say the same thing about someone you believe in.

Nope you will go to hell . You aren't obeying your god. The will of your god is to kill 1000 people in his name.

How so? If I'm not mistaken, your god has claimed to have presided over a worldwide genocide before. What's another 1000?

Please answer my question, Jeremy.

“You see… sometimes life gives you lemons. And when that happens… you need to find some spell that makes lemons explode, because lemons are terrible. I only ate them once and I can say with certainty they are the worst fruit. If life gave me lemons, I would view it as nothing short of a declaration of war."

You are right. I have not always trusted God. You cannot trust someone if you do not know them.

I have not always known God.

What changed this? God changed this.

And this ladies and gentlemen is why 'faith' and 'gullibility' are synonymous... Facepalm

To you they are synonymous. By this reasoning, if you exercise faith in anything you are also gullible.

Depends on your idea of necessary. I find it necessary to question everything, and I find it to be extremely useful too.

Great. Just because you've come out unscathed from buying into something without questioning it doesn't mean that it's true nor that it couldn't have ill effects in the future.

The mantra can be, should be, and indeed is questioned, which is the whole beauty of it. And after having questioned whether or not everything should be questioned, I have concluded: YES! Why? Because it is the best way to restrict yourself from accepting falsehoods as true. If you don't find it preferable to accept true things as true, and false things as false, then I'm at loss with how to proceed.

The difference is that I have good reasons to believe in God.

Can you explain your reasons? Man this circular game is fun. This thread looks like the last person to post wins sequel.

Anything that would demonstrate that God has failed to live up to my conceptualization of who God would be.

your life ultimately is no more meaningful than the life of a fly that lives for 24 hours.

I see someone is as obsessed with Objective Ultimate Meaning as he is with Objective Morality. Yes

fixed that for ya.
