God Questions

    marinealways24posted 7 years ago

    -I have had many unanswered questions that religionist like to answer as interpretations because the bible answers nothing.


    I would like to play the religionist role now and answer any question that you have through interpretaton.

    Just an experiment to show how the believers mind operates and will find faith or interpretation in attempt to answer a question.


    So, what is your question? God's interpretation awaits to answer it.

      Marine, you are loosing your ability to debate. I have provided many answers to your questions. Maybe you don't find anything outside of your mindset acceptible?

      Here ya go marine.

      Could we end the religious debate by simply observing the footsteps embedded in volcanic soil of a family of three?
      2 adults and a child walking upright dated 3.5 Million years ago.
      David Attenborough.
      Is that it? Final enough for you?

          Well, I would have to challenge the dating. When I was a kid- the egyptian pyramids were thought to be over 10,000 years old.

          the "ice man" was first said to be 40,000 years old, now he's 4,500 +/-. And I suppose they dated the volcanic soil and that is how they dated these footsteps at 3.5 million years old. But Mt St. Helens produced numbers on your carbon scale that would suggest that she blew 4 million years ago, but we know that wasn't true. 

          so I suppose one might challenge it.

          Not the sheep though. Start following God, He won't lie to you.

        Hello dear Earnest, bible gods answer has arrived. lol

        Dear Earnest, those were not evolved homonoids, they were just tools of the devil to make you believe evolution. lol

        Earnest, you must have faith, deny all logic and believe the bible I needed man to write for me. I don't like to write, i'm kinda lazy. Now, build me a temple.

      Robert E. Bargerposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Can you imagition "being Love". God is Love, and because He "is" love he he cannot not love. When God told us to keep the commandments he told us because His commandments are His love to us that we might love people, the animals, the creation and everything around us. "But" on the other hand if we don't keep the commandments God in his mercy, doesn't kill us but gives us a chance to fine out about Him by the trouble that's going to come into your life. Part of His love to us comes in the form of a curse, on us, and our children, and our grand children. When we say "I love you", if its not based on His will, its not love but lust.
         Gods nature is: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, meekness, tempterabce, faith.
          Us without God manifests: Adultery, fornication, witchcraft, hatered, malice, sedition, competition, heretics, and other bad things. We are born with a nature contray to Gods nature so Jesus had to die that we might have the chance to be like God.

    Actually, the Bible answers quite a bit.  Just live by the Word and believe in God. Live by the 10 Commandments, it's easy.  God answers your questions and helps you in His own time. 

    Do you have a specific question?

    1. marinealways24 profile image61
      marinealways24posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      A few of them. You obviously haven't read my hubs with the title God in them. lol


      But, I know all answers in this thread because I am the believer mind.

      1. atomswifey profile image69
        atomswifeyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        You get answers you just choose to not like the ones you get.
        And not all of us believers answer in the ways you have here either!
        You say you answer through the mind of a believer, but that is impossible being an unbeliever as you do not have the mind or heart of the believer to understand nor interpret scripture.
        You are being deceived in your search for the truth and are accepting of mans or satans answers and being defiant of Gods answers since you know there is accountability and responsibility in accepting them.

        The truth is marine, God loves you. He always has. He knows the number of every hair on your head because it is important to Him because He loves you.
        You look at your baby and can feel how much you love. Gods love is even greater than that. You would not put your baby in a bubble to guard against anything happening to him. God does not put His children in bubbles either.
        You made the choice to bring your baby into this world even though you know the dangers right? Why would you do that if you consider what God did in the same way as being irresponsible or bad?
        Because you love right? And you realize that the world is not ALL bad. It is not all evil. There are dangers, yes, but there is also beauty and hope and freedom and love. Just as much good as there is evil. Some will fall into the hands of evil, some will not. But even if one of Gods, those who are in Christ fall into the hands of evil on this earth, we are not really in those hands at all, but Christ's.
        He carries us. You see so even though there may come times when we are put to death, either by illness, or natural causes, or sin (crimes), we know all these things hold no real power over us since they are only temporary to the everlasting life which awaits us. So there is no fear in death. No fear in this life. Only peace and love in and for our God.

            No marine it is you who are being rather arrogant here. Arrogant enough to make an absolute statement that the Bible is not divinely written or inspired. You set yourself up in here as knowing how God would answer these questions as you did not really knowing or understanding yourself as to what truth really is.

            Gods Word stands up to your "tests". It does contain the answers. All one has to do is read.

                No the answers are there in that book and this is what your disbelieving heart and deceived mind fail to see.

                The reason?
                You know to see the truth there is to see ALL the truth and this something you are choosing to avoid. You do not want to be accountable to God.

            You are correct Marine.  The bible is man made.  However, the whole idea is to live your life in the best way you can, be kind to your fellow man, treat people the way you want to be treated.  Just by following the 10 commandments you are leading a better life than say a serial killer, rapist etc.  Semper Fi

    Knowing little to nothing of Scientology, I would guess this is what you are preaching.

    Your mind is limited just as the biblical mind. In search of a belief. You are not content with open belief or an individual belief.

    Belief should not be grouped, do you not understand this?

    You are right about the Gods Word contradicting "individualism" or self righteousness. Which is exactly what most unbelievers are guilty of. Self Righteousness. Thinking they are above being in Need of their God.
    Thinking their "self" is all they need.
    It is a deception.

    God loves you Marine. Thats all I am going to say. He loves you and and all.
    His love is greater than anyone can even fathom. Its ok that you question and wonder, I think its awesome in fact. smile I know GHod does too. He wants you to question and wonder and draw closer to His truth.

    If that means you stay in disbelief for a time longer thats fine too. God will meet you at a time and place in life when you ready to open your heart to Him. smile

    I think you are really smart and funny. I actually really like reading your posts though they incite me sometimes as I feel sometimes they cross the line of respect. But I do enjoy conversing with you. smile

    Marine,
    you have no understanding of who the men were that wrote the bible. I would love to know what government funded the writings, why they chose the men they did, and how they got the "people" to believe it? 

    Biblicaly speaking, you are incredibly ignorant(as most that argue against it are). I have heard many conspiracies of the non-believers. Some crazier than others.

    It just goes to show that people will believe anything so long as God is not involved. FACT

            I have lived without God. I was never as proud though.

            Did I not accuse you of being ignorant of scripture? You are.

            So why is it the bible and religion that you want to attack when you have no knowledge of the 2?

            Character reflects ones individualism, maybe you want to attack character. Your character is free spirited, good for you.

            there, that was easy.

    No marine,  I worship God, not any religion(don’t confuse the two.) You worship yourself and your pride keeps you in this skeptic state, until you know God you stay in this realm unbelief and sarcastic rants. Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” When I last spoke with you seemed as if were truly seeking truth, but your pride led your even further away from God. What's holding you back from embracing the truth of God love? Do you still have questions? I’ll do my best to answer. You scream individualism but you see now believers in the God of the bible are the vocal  minority. The true  individual.
    We are the ones who refuse to yield to the way of this world, and stand firm on God’s promise. You are not an individual.  You are along with the generation it which the bible speaks 2 Timothy 3:1-7 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” Congrats marine your quest for individualism has  backfired and you are no different than any other non-believer.

Whenever a Christian calls you out on the absolute negative of atheism/unbelief, deny and unleash heck on their character and use big font, and smiley’s call them names and insult their intelligence tell them to read a book. Never question the your pride no matter how ridiculous you sound. Show no respect after all we are just animals, right? When all else fails mock the Bible that will anger Christians and will show they are not perfect (even though no true Christian will claim to be perfect.) Stick your fingers in our ears and yell “there is no God,” to drown out all common sense. Whenever possible use words like "which god?" “sky daddy“, “imaginary sky friend,” “old book,” “Jebus” “Babble” “religious” “bigot” “homophobic” put God in lower case, Bring up old refuted bible “contradictions” deny all the facts in favor of Jesus, the biblical account of his life and resurrection. The hundreds of  eyewitnesses and the fact that even other nonbelievers acknowledge that he did raise from the dead.
    Atheism/unbelief is the religion that offers nothing, but the bondage to sin (Now while you Google bible slavery verses and look up a counter "arguments".) Did I miss anything?

      However, religion does date back some thousands of years, but was formed, like government, to control the masses. Not to mention, religion collectively gathers more wealth than most nations. GOD needs money, almost daily? LOL(just kidding)

      Religion is based on the supposed interpretation of ancient text, which is controlled by other upper authorities of religious faith ministries. So access you are granted is through the establish forums, such as a Bible or other scripture.

      The problem here is that the interpretation is false and contradictory to that of life. Which means, religion is kill people and isn't going to change, until people see the truth.

          Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Let's breakdown what you're saying- Any grouped belief is government? And, whether or not, I agree?

          Okay, first let's start with defining "Government", only on basics, nothing complicated: Government is Rule/Law Enforcement officials(including politicians). They set the rules/law(s).

          A grouped belief: dictates rules/laws(s) or bylaws, which govern the actions of group members.

          So, technically speaking- a grouped belief would be the same as Government.

          Both dictate rules/laws and enforced said rules/laws.

          You can debate many things, but a singular belief among citizens would be good, as long as it's constructive and productive, and indoctrinated by all.

          Example: Religion already has 5 BILLION subscribers/members/believers....this is a powerful machine, but isn't utilized properly. Therefore, humanity has society, as a result. Not to mention, religion is a business and nothing more to begin with.

          Another example: If there was a powerful enough individual who could unite the people of the world, under a singular ideology, other than religion, we as a civilization would be able to grow beyond anything anyone has ever seen.

          World Peace would be achieveable, as long as the driving goal is seen by all, and the path made clear, it's not outside the realm of possibilities.

    Can I say, some churches have so many false teachings that it becomes easy for us to walk away. It is for the individual to find truth in all things. I was dissowned by my family when I became a Historical Adventist. ohh well. is that not individualism?

    With God, all things are possible. Do you understand the meaning of possible? It doesn't mean that God would reveal Himself to you. He could, but maybe he wanted you to dig deeper and not be superficial. Even Moses could not gaze upon God's face, that is why God covered him with his hand so that he could pass.

    I used to ask God to reveal Himself to me. It was every time I was drunk and gazing at the stars. Now I know He is real, and I will endure the patience of this short life.

          I know for a fact, I was a Christain for 18 years.  And it is blatant arrogance for you to stand in judgemnt of me, when you were not there with me at the time.  I was delusional, just like you, and I will never go back to that prison. I have the courage to think for myself now.  You don't.

            When you are truly a Christian Jesus Christ lives inside of you FOREVER. To be intellectually honest, you were either never a Christian then or you're not really an atheist now. I find it funny that atheist will fight tooth and nail to convince Christians they used to be like us, like it gives you justification to act the way you do. You guys just love to say “I used to be a Christian just like you” let me tell ya No, you weren't!  I have no religion, I have relationship with Jesus Christ. I am a sinner I’ve lied, stolen, lusted, coveted I’ve broken all the commandants and I deserve Hell, but because God so loved the world he gave came to earth as Jesus Christ to die on the cross your all my sins and yours. I’ve been saved by the grace of Jesus Christ. I’m free! You, my friend are locked in a prison of sin. Religion can’t save you, your works can’t save you. Only the blood of Jesus.  Jesus is the key.
            Ps If you still believe you indeed were a Christian, that means you are now an apostate.

              It is apparent that we have different definitions of the term "Christian."  See, to me, my definition of a "Christian" is:  One who abandons his mind and pursues an irrational philophy based on fear.  One, who, despite the millions of reasons to reject this dogma as pure nonsense, accepts it, nevertheless.  Yes, I was delusional; I was a "Christian."

              There is no truth in your dogma, and all your answers point to delusion.

    It's just more of the same; men who title themselves believers and so claim to know the mind of God and justify their own willful violations Of his word by claiming it was all for his Good.

Maybe that I would rather live with people then categorize them into neat little boxes that make it easier to dislike them is offending to you but honestly I really don't care. It's nice that you immediately attribute my success to favoritism then and attempts at winning friends then to the fact that people actually think I am a good writer.

But you are right I am dangerous, very dangerous because I am free in every way that you will never be, I cast off my chains long ago, and moved forward in life, I think on my own and listen instead of closing my ears to any view I don't like. I am free to do whatever I like because I know about truth and choice and free will, and because I recognize who God created me to be and have accepted it. I don't live in fear.

      I don't care about my answers being popular. I care about telling the truth. obviously the truth is not popular, but false teaching is dangerous. Did Jesus ever mention things like "its how you interpet it", "because God is just, there is hell. Because he is fair, it is empty.", "We are all god"
      I hear and read these type of things all of the time. They are false. 

      my question still is, what is love without truth?

      I want to talk about the love of Jesus. I will. I think I will write a hub about forgiveness and sin. But it will still have the message that Jesus taught, not my teachings.

                    Alright I will give it a shot to answer as best as I can.

                    For one thing the Bible was produced from a nation which served many gods, yet the Bible speaks of only one God. The God of Abraham. This to some great extent proves its inspiration as being divine I believe as it would have been destroyed.
                    For two, it was not written in the style of human writings which would minimize the mistakes of it's heroes. The Bible is very clear about the mistakes of some of the great heroes. Abraham, Moses and David all were fallible as humans and their stories are told without consideration to making them look rather, fallible or having made mistakes.

                    Also,
                    The Bible is one complete piece of literature, despite the fact it is actually several books written by over 40 different people over a period of sixteen centuries.
                    And it's prophecies most of which have come true and are coming true, its historical records are accurate and it meshes well with modern science and our universe, some of the facts which were not otherwise known to man until many years after the Bible was completed.
                    So for these reasons and more I believe the Bible was inspired by God and is in fact, The Word of God.
