But he does. All ya gotta do is pray for forgiveness. Dodgy
He does not tell people to steal and then pray for forgiveness. Silly willy nilly.

Language's value is in a common lexicon that means the same to everyone that hears it. So, just to set you straight:

god
noun \ˈgäd also ˈgȯd\
Definition of GOD
1 capitalized : the supreme or ultimate reality: as
a : the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe
b Christian Science : the incorporeal divine Principle ruling over all as eternal Spirit : infinite Mind
2 : a being or object believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship; specifically : one controlling a particular aspect or part of reality
3 : a person or thing of supreme value
4 : a powerful ruler


The bolded definition bears some resemblance to yours, at least superficially. I assume you're a "Christian Scientist," then?

Jesus fracking Christ, excuse the expression, but I think the religion I was raised in was nutty for not allowing blood transfusions. Let me know how that complete lack of modern medical treatment thing works out for you.

Without an absolute you can define anything any way you want.

Let the spirit of hatred speak.
The Egyptians had made slaves of the Israelites for generations. To take their Jewels as they departed is a small compensation when compared to justice. Besides, why do you atheists not agree with one another on what you don't believe in? Bucky ball calls this entire story a myth. Meanwhile Revenant 77 says that God is the purest form of wishful thinking. But with respect, you people are too cute.

Their claims are not mutually exclusive.

Let's see. God is hate because he had the Israelites take the Egyptians jewels.
But God didn't have the Israelites take the Egyptians jewels because it never happened.
And yet the spirit of hate is the most purest form of wishful thinking?

Sounds contradictory to me.
