But god does not exist.
My friend, He does, and He Loves you. He is the Father God, and you are Daughter of Man and Daughter of God. He looks at you and smiles and says, "This is my Daughter". But when you do not belive in Him nor care for Him, He looks at you and says, "I still Love you".

When you cry, He cries with you. When your Heart is broken, His is as well. When you smile, He does too. When you hate Him, He Loves you. When you Love Him, He Loves and Blesses you.

You are something Great, you are Daughter of God! This is something that you will always be. He will always be there with you, and He will always Love you.

According to you, what he says is "I still love you - I mean, make no mistake, I'm going to burn you in a lake of fire for all eternity...but I still love you."

The god you believe in is evil.

My friend, we are the ones to choose where we go. We send ourselves to Hell if we choose to ignore God. We send ourselves to Heaven if we choose to Belive in God. It is our choice. God wants us all to go to Heaven, why don't you go?

We must have the The Holy Spirit to enter Heaven, if we do not belive in God, then we do not have the Holy Spirit, and we can not enter Heaven.

My friend, I belive that one day you to will be with God. Reach to Him and He will catch you.
When times get bad, He will be there walking with you. When times get worse, He will be caring you.

Kom, you have admitted several times that god says nothing about same-sex marriage. Why are you here?
A more appropriate thread would the "homosexuality and the bible". Take a look for it.

Korn, you have only one thing in all of this. Interpretation. From the authors of the books of the bible to those who this day turn their back on absolute reality to follow their own interpretation of the bible. It is all flawed. None of it is truth for none of it can be proven as absolute fact. None of it can even be proven as magic.

In all of reality there is one absolute, the one truth that can not be denied. The very fabric of the universe itself. The universe works harmoniously within its own way. We are part of that way. Many label it, or name it as God's works. In doing so we become seperate from the universe. We create a dual nature with it. People are led to reduce the perceived "chaos" in the universe by making a supernatural religious appeal because that seems more effective than one's own attempts to understand their connection to the universe.

You sit here and promote your faith which is based on nothing more than your opinion. There is nothing of truth in your opinion when you can't say "look, here is the hand of god". You as an individual nor can the interpretations of those 2000 years passed can produce anything that comes close to even suggesting that what you are so willing to sell is fact

Korn I tell you this. The universe is fact. It manifests itself in so many levels of reality. Go in your back yard and pick a blade of grass and know that what you hold is the recycled matter from our ancestors, animal life and the very essence of dying stars.

Now I don't want to bring down your belief in some devastation crash of a house of cards. Go on live life. Live a good life. Put faith in that you need faith to be a good person. Just have some respect and leave people who don't believe in fairy tales alone.

I am not your friend and your god is evil.

No one chooses to burn for all eternity in a lake of fire - seriously, you sound psychotic. If your god is real and hell is real then it is, in fact, your god that consigns people to eternal suffering.

Your god = evil.

You don't know what that means, so you let me explain it to you.
You are assuming a lot of lesbians try to look (sic) and imitate a man. And like many idiots, you figure using multiple punctuation marks will make up for your lack of a rational argument.

Angel Nicole, very nice name and very good post.

My friend, The world around us is the best evidence and proof that God created the universe. The very existence of the universe cannot be understood or explained using our five senses. The actual creation of this world was a miracle and cannot be explained by natural phenomenon. These Bible verses show proof that God created the universe; John 1:3, Hebrews 11:3, Genesis 2:7, and Romans 1:20.

Matter did not create matter and Dust did not create dust. We were not just a big accident, we were created with Love and with perpose. Many people deny God so that they can put their interests above Him.

The whole Universe has its perpose in helping us, like Jupiter which mops up many of the stray meteors, comets and asteroids which might otherwise impact the Earth and cause mass extinctions of life.

We have the Moon that is so large and so close to us that it is able to moderate any excessively large shifts in the tilt of the Earth's axis. Without this, the planet's climate would fluctuate dramatically, making it very difficult for most living creatures to survive.

Water has a higher heat of vaporization than any known substance. This makes water the best possible coolant by evaporation, and living creatures use this to control their temperatures.

If you belive all this to be just one big accident, then which is the fairy tale? The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." Psalm 14:1.

There is also alot of proof ouside of the Bible that confirms Biblical events. If you like I would post them.

My friend, God has done everything He possibly can to keep you out of Hell and still leave you as a person with free will and not just a robot, for across the road to Hell he has placed the cross of Christ.

But forget not that anyone can be saved, all you have to do is except Him into your Heart. Hell was not created for us, Hell was created for Satan and his Demons. But the Devil tricks us into ignoring God and by doing this causes us to go down with him. I say to you my friend DO NOT BE FOOLED. You are no fool so do not be fooled by him. The Devil messed up what he had and now he wants to take down as many people with him as he can. DO NOT BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. For this is why we Pray and this is why we Love.

And you wonder why I call you an unrepentant thief and a pathological liar? You have no faith, just a really bad collage of thoughts you have ripped off because you thought they sounded good. Calling us your friend is just as vacuous as 'your' supposed thoughts on the nature of God.

You enjoy scriptural lessons, well ripping them off anyways. If you actually do own a Bible, try Matthew 7:15-23 on for size. Your Jesus, wise fellow, He warned us about people like you.

You are incorrect - there is one more thing your god could do to keep people out of hell AND keep free will intact:

God could eliminate hell.

There are no sections of the Bible that say anything of the sort.
The ONLY scripture that your type likes to use is not a definition of marriage, but Jesus' proclamation of when Divorce is allowed.
And Christians today completely ignore that when they divorce in such large numbers, so how can any of them have the nerve to twist it into something against gay folks?
And while Jesus was discussing divorce he defined marriage. Its right there in black and white. The reason the Bible never comes out and says "men can't marry men" is because the whole idea is preposterous. It doesn't say "men can't marry cows" either.

Its just not what marriage is.

It's right next to the passage that says men can't marry animals. Oh wait...it doesn't say that directly. You and your dog are safe but it does say you can't have sex (Lev 18:23). Kind of spoils the honeymoon...eh?

You don't think much of marriage comparing it to bestiality.

Please fill free to add into the bible all those things god 'forgot' to say.
