    Why not god telling which book to follow when human kind reach age of let's say 18? Is not that will solve all the major conflict going on in the world now?

      Human beings misiterpret as they are human beings and they do err; they can make mistakes of undertanding; the cure is to interpret the Word correctly.

        That is fine if this world is only have one book. But what we have here in this world now is so many books.
        From someone who not born into any of those religion how do they know which book is real? If god not telling him which one to follow...........

      The Bible contain stories for how human will behave.  God knows this and given answers to these "life situations" pertaining to Greed, lust, murder.  Mostly God teaches love.  God sent Jesus which represent love.  He said through Jesus you can reach God.  Through love you can reach God.  Mans interpretation of the bible made religion what it is.  Because Man claim his way is right because of his Ego and self righteousness.  If you want to know God, he is already inside of you.  "Be Still and Know that I am God"  God did not mean physically stand and be still.  God is talking about your mind, calm your mind relax your mind let go and become thoughtless and listen aka meditation.  "When Thine eye is single, thy body will also be full of light"  When Jesus said that he was talking about your third eye through meditation and realizing the awareness of yourself away from your mind.  How would you explain that to a person who was born blind?  You could not.  Sit quietly alone, calm your mind do not think, just observe and feel the life in you which is a part of God and you will know what I am talking about.

    In order to save the lives of Christians God is counting on the bible to be misinterpreted by those who can not see that which is right in front of their face.  He done this not only with the bible but actions he has taken-can in one remember moses-he grew up under the roof of the very person trying to kill him.

    I get the impression people expects God to act like humans by this I'm saying a human will give you a let's say high position but if you step out of bounds from the freedom you've been given well someone higher up is going to put you back in your place.  When God says I'm giving you freedom to rule as you like That's Just What He Means- You can create a world/planet of love, peace and harmony OR you can create the kind of world we have today where greed is the chief commonity, hate is as natural as breathing, crime is just an expectation, war is a business enterprise and on.

    As much as we like to point the finger at God the real problem has always been US!

      That is fine if this world is only have christian and non-believer. But what we have here in this world now is Christian, Islam, Buddhism and a lot more. From someone who not born into any of those religion how do they know which is real god? If god not telling him which way to go.

      Cool.  So, your god created a document with the express purpose of confounding people. To make sure hell was populated. He sounds like a peachy kind of god. You must be very proud.

      Did you do that to your children? Give them insanely mixed signals so most would fail? Did you do it so you could love one more than the others? If not, I'd be curious why. You do want to do exactly as your God does. Don't you?

        Not that it matters to many people today because from the beginning of time mankind does not look to God but rather to self. Apparently you did not read the first line of the article I wrote for I stated the book was written to save Christian's lives.

        Mankind for a long time has stood in judgment of God-what has mankind done in order to take this position? Look around you at the evil we have created.  This evil is by the hands of man. It is not God who is not feeding the poor, homeless, it's not God who is robbing, stealing, threatening, torturing, or warring, hating-it is mankind who has created this mess and it is mankind that continues to situate this mess so in a universe where we are so imperfect beings how can we think so highly of themselves when in our own backyard it is so pitiful and malfunctioning that we should see ourselves for the shameful being that we are?

          I read your statement. In order to save the lives of Christians God is counting on the bible to be misinterpreted by those who can not see that which is right in front of their face.

          So, why evangelize? Apparently your god thinks this is all a big joke. What did he say? 'I'll put it in a book, but make it sound so crazy just so no one will believe. Get a good laugh and then burn them in hell.'

          Do you think about how your words will be perceived? I don't sit in judgement of a God. What I do is sit in shock at how some can imagine one to be.

          And  if the scripture quote was directed at me, all I can say is; you first. You, at least, recognize the log in your eye and then we'll talk about mine.

            From what I can see you can't see beyond your own thoughts.  You ignore all the hate, the lies, the killing and talk like mankind can be better then anyone-what a joke.

            If you kids were held by bad people and the only way you could save them would be to get a note passed to them anyone that is thinking try to write it in code so only the kids understood it and not the bad guys-No Big Mystery on this approach-people walking around blinded to the truth.

              You know, that's a problem. What makes you think you are better than others? That's what your post boils down to. You and a few are special. The rest of us are just evil and spend our days hating, lying and killing.  We don't.

              This is not utopia, but one of the things that hold it down are people who hate their fellow man so much, and think we are all so terrible that there is some super being handing out invisible decoder rings to only a few to give them a way to know they are special.

              You realize this attitude has absolutely nothing in common with the gospels? You do realize that hatred and suspicion were not taught by the Christ? Where does Christianity get this from?

                Beside what you think where have I indicated I was better then anyone?

                This world is mess up because other people put other people's belief, faith down for reasons beyond my understanding since in the Christian faith one is not forced to accept it but they I guess have to see themselves as superior and so that in their mind gives them the right to tell believers what is right and what is wrong.

                  By your posts, you sit in judgment of your fellow man. You claim a god who purposely refuses to share a hope because he wants to confound us. You claim people are evil. They lie, hate and kill because they don't recognize god, but how can they? By your own statement God didn't want them to.

                  And you complain that I'm putting your faith down? I'm simply taking  exactly what you said and reiterating. If you have a problem with my words, you might change your own

                    You talk like people are looking for God....People aren't looking for God in fact many Christians will tell you they weren't always on the road to God.  God didn't hide is words From Those Who Choose To Beleive But God recognized (Noticed I Said God) Men don't seek after him but they seek after their own pleasures and telling the truth isn't trying to appear superior it is simply saying what some people don't want to hear.

                    During the time of the Roman Empire the people far less educated then we are today understood and accepted the teaching of Jesus While the Roman's couldn't make sense of what Jesus was saying.

      And we are exactly as God made us (assuming the who fairy tale is not a load of rubbish that is).
      Oh thank you God for making me a creature you would find so distasteful, the freedom to unwittingly piss you off is a blessing, really! roll

    no hell and heaven...let's throw our justice and law system in our world. Let's people do what they want to do...kill, rape, loot, etc. Since if we punished people, people would say that we were not merciful. Silly thought.
    And let those criminals died and go to Heaven, since God is merciful....lol. I hope you understand what I mean...
