Is this a heads we win, tails you lose type argument? That is a bit sneaky.
Actually, Hiroshi, it is satan that is a 'psychotic tyrant' who is incapable of love.
Let me guess, you want theists to either deny it or defend it, right?
God never does anything without just reason and your lame duck excuse involves thinking, believing or supposing that your own personal interpretation of morality is based on all surpassing knowledge rather than personal bias.
You sound like an individual from that well known community which stands condemned by sound religious teachings.
This is not an argument. EVERYTHING which God does is a) JUSTIFIED and b) GOOD.
The fact that you don't like that is irrelevant and tough. He is the Divine Creator and it is His supreme right to do exactly as He chooses.
....... and if God stops people with that kind of attitude (excuse) from murdering believers in the last days I suppose you wouldn't like that either?
God has a supreme right to protect and defend those whom He chooses and those whom He loves and also (listen carefully) His Creation.
If you actually knew 0.001% of what God knows, you would have a completely different attitude and also you would be deeply concerned about where you stand, I believe. Flowerchild is right, someone is showing their dishonesty and seething hatred here. Now there is a name for an obvious terrorist! ? lol? (❀✿☺Flowerchild☺✿❀ that is)
God sees and knows things that no one else does. Would you care to argue that point?
comment... It doesn't matter which group I was referring to. I was simply pointing out the obvious that users on here who attack Christianity have an obvious agenda which is highly likely to be political, i.e. these people object vehemently to a return to Christian morality/values in Law. (***)
You seem to have deflected away from the more important argument which is that since God sees and knows everything He is therefore in a much better position to judge what is or is not necessary. The suggestion that Almighty God, the Divine Creator of all things and the Author and Giver of Life is just a genocidal murderer, homophobic, jealous, egotistical racist etc etc. is utterly absurd. In American Law people have the right to self defense and to protect their family, their property AND to take the life of an individual who is committing an offence liable to result in the death of an innocent person. Can anyone tell me why God should be any different?... not that God needs to justify His actions by any man made Law, of course. As I said, everything which God does is good. The fact that many are blissfully ignorant and totally oblivious to those reasons is THEIR problem, not His.
You forget that at least some of us are aware that many people who know they are in serious trouble if God really does exist are more than enthusiastic about denying Him, probably for reassurance as much as anything and somewhat less than enthusiastic about being punished or destroyed. So what they would appear to want to do is to ban God Himself (***) for being too violent and this, no doubt, would allow them to sleep more soundly at night thinking that this total ban is conclusive proof that the 'Mighty Smiter' ain't gonna smite nobody. Banning God might be the last thing that people ever do on this earth but not in the way that they might be expecting. His is the Hand which sustains and protects mankind, which is what you would expect, since He alone is The Creator.
