I didn't say I was being abused.<quoted text>
No Bitner I was using your analogy of their choice.
You say if you go out tonite you are grounded.( and Unless you lock them up)' They are free to obey you or not.
You ARE free to choose a place with God or not with God.
We have been discussing my belief.
You of course can believe what you CHOOSE to.
You ARE free to make that choice. What is stopping you. Nothing.
You don't even believe in Him and I do.
You make a choice every day and no one or Deity stops you.
Free choice. And if you don't believe in God or eternal punishment.
Than its not a deterrent for you anyway. So you are not being"abused"
Unless you are afraid The God I believe in is real. Again yours to decide.
As we all do.
Again, there is no choice when there is only one "right" choice.
You didn't answer another question. Is your God not supposed to be our example of parental love?
Are you under the impression that I'm an Atheist? Because I'm not.
