The only real difference is that god knows what decision you are going to make before you do. The robber is hoping to not have to kill you but god knows whether or not he is going to kill you…in this way the robber is more compassionate.
Whaaat?! But God had NO IDEA that Adam and Eve would eat from the tree! Yes, He *is* all-knowing and all-loving. That’s why He didn’t stop them because He gave them Free Will! He warned them and they disobeyed Him! Oh no! And to this day He is still angry at Man for eating a measly fruit some 6,000 years ago.
What a loving God we serve!
There is absolutely no difference.
But God LOVES us! Surely He has a plan for us all…
A plan to turn families against each other.
God loves everyone but just like real life families he loves the ones who kiss his ass and boost his ego even more by letting them into heaven. The big difference here though is that the parent is never around…and is invisible…
Anyone that buys into such a deluded comment based solely on the assumption that EVERY (or any, for that matter) thief will kill you, deserves to believe they will rot in hell for disobeying “god.” It’s essentially impossible to know whether or not you will get killed by a thief, because there are far too many people and situations where that may happen. We live in tiny bubbles of existence yet so many decide to assume on a massive scale having little experience in regard to those assumptions. Instead of assuming a thief will kill you if you refuse to cooperate, ask a rational question, is your life worth losing to do nothing to stop a desperate person from taking what you have?
It’s that connection to tangible things that gets people killed, what person has only things they need? This need that might be argued for a phone or money, etc, is something created by our societies, we’ve added our own complication to existence and life, which in the end creates foolish values, such as caring about your wallet more than your life. Complication is a human condition, every day situations are made complicated by us, not by the situation itself, life is simple, we make it immensely complicated with the aid of technology. Believers in god should shy away from technology, as it makes sin all the easier to accomplish and all the more tempting as little effort is required to get the tools necessary.
Human existence will never be anything close to what nature can support, and sooner than we think it will become quite clear as to why. It’s this overabundance of people that accelerates the occurrence of unexpected and undesired actions as well as their consequences. Human interaction and dependence is far too vast to sustain everyone equally and in a joyful state of existence, it’s a tough thought, but if most of man were to die, the others, and the earth would be better off.
The Earth would certainly be better off. Coral reefs would rebound, forests would begin to reoccupy once lost homes, some endangered species would begin to flourish and this vicious cycle of pollution that humans have started would eventually stop (after everything rots away in a few thousand years). Viva la NATURE!!!!
OK, let’s replace thief with bloody fuckin’ assassin then.
Wait. Bloody fuckin’ assassin = God?
or does God not get bloody?
god can choke you through a tv screen, like darth vader
sweet. Does that make me Skywalker?
He is your Father.
Of course He can.
