It says god brings the antichrist for an evil nation. The antichrist is his judgement.

Regurgitating storylines from the bible again? The Odyssey says that Circe tried to ensnare Odysseus. Refute that!

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

Reminds me that back in the day, when I was in fundamentalism, there was a general sense that the Bible itself has powerful mojo and if you just spout it incessantly it will start to change people's minds in spite of themselves. Because:
Quote:... the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)
What is that, if not magic?

Must be what this guy thinks he's doing.

By the way I've had him on ignore now for a few days and sure enough, he adds zero to the conversation, because I can follow what's going on without even reading his scribblings. I have mixed feelings about encouraging the troll, but things ARE a little slow here, so ... carry on, I guess.

If the events in the bible are just going to be cherry picked by the denomination of Christianity that it suits, then it is entirely unfair to choose the parts that suits you and then claim your god is all compassionate! Take it from another point of view and cherry pick all the horrible, misogynistic, sadistic, murderous events committed by god and those supposedly following him and you see a picture of a god who is simply evil. It is a question of perspective.

Can you really ignore (or defend) these evils that were supposedly committed by god?

The old testament is the history of the jews but it tells how god cares and helps flawed men who are actually trying to be a good person even when they sin.

Your reputation level shows your comments are illogical and void of any evidence or reason.

Don't kid yourself that you're going to live again after you're dead; you're not. Make the most of the one life you've got. Live it to the full.
