You are mis-interpreting the Bible, possibly on purpose, to fit your own freedom of behaviors. That is very common of unbelivers. It is also very common to despise, hate, and mock God's people, because the power of God is so strong.
If you actually didn't believe in a God, then why even bother attacking us?
No, I am clearly not misinterpreting the Bible. It is filled with flaws. And how is pointing out a simple fact attacking you? It definitely is not attacking any gods. There is no hate, no mocking (at least not right now, if you continue this idiocy then you could very well be mocked).

Once again, you are trying to use a failed document to support your beliefs. That will not work, since it has been shown in the past to have many imperfections in it. It has bad science, Adam and Eve, Noah's Ark and other such fairly tales. It has bad geography, it describes the Earth as a flat several times. And don't you Bible people say that if something is repeated several times that indicates that it is an important fact? It has bad morals. Many contradictions. And failed prophecies.

The bible may not be perfect but that is only because it was written by humans. You should also separate the NT from the old. The OT is about God and the NT is about Satan who wants to be God. The NT is full of myths, lies and delusion. There will never be a rapture, tribulation or millennium. But the stories in the OT are true, like Adam and Eve and Noahs ark. The OT will be proven true when the Messiah comes and fulfills it.

Mankind has been around for 200,000 years.
Adam and Eve never existed.
Moses didn't write the Pentateuch....may not have even existed
There was never an Exodus from Egypt
There was never a Noachian flood.
The 'Tower of Babel' never happened
Sorry, you really can't prove any of this. As noted o believe in both evolution and creation. No question we do have a protector. If you'd deny this. it's just because you are in denial. Therefore the debate would be a waste of my time. Us being here, jus has too many miracles. God allowing evil and disasters is just part of Free Will. I do believe you and all others do know YOURSELF. You have a short existence debating your points listed above looks like a terrible waste of time for you

Nope, no Noah's Ark. There is no evidence for it and plenty of evidence against it. For example if there was a flood there would be severe genetic bottlenecks datable to the time of the Ark in all species. That is not observed.

I was speaking of the justice and punishment from God, even after the masters die.
Possibly, the Christians here are 'wasting' our time speaking to many of you who have already 'hardened' your hearts, so the seeds of God's word does not grow.
First off you do not know what happens after we die. The hearsay you would like us to accept is nonsense because you just don't know. And there is no such thing as a Christian because you do not obey the Bible. You want others to obey the silly Bible while you refuse to do so yourself. Why can't you admit to this truth?

It is not that atheists have hardened their hearts it is because you are a liar who can't stay focused on the discussion at hand, and you can't prove a word you write.

You make assertion after assertion and expect everyone to come to Jesus just because you repeated what was told to you. Atheists and Anti-theists are not as stupid as are pew warmers. We need more than a warm fuzzy feeling, which is all you have to offer.

GOD CREATES EVIL:
"I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things" (Isa. 45:7).
"Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that good and evil come?" (Lam. 3:38).
"...that I may repent of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings" (Jer. 26:3).
"...all the evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin" (Jer. 36:3).
"I gave them also statutes that were not good, and judgments whereby they should not live. And I polluted them in their own gifts...." (Ezek. 20:25-26).
"For thus saith the Lord; as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them" (Jer. 32:42).
"...shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?"

Like I said in another part of the post " It all boils down to what a person wants to believe and if you believe it strong enough nothing will change your mind except 100% pure factual proof which no one will ever have. And if that proof was to ever happen there would still be doubt, criticizing and arguments from both sides for it would go against everything they believed in to start with.

Proof lacks on both sides. That why they argue all the time.

rather ironic that the first day of Jesus the prince of peace would be called Vengeance, Wrath and Destruction, don't you think.

and I bet you scoff when Muslims call Islam the religion of peace...

personally I think both groups are two sides of the same coin, both are used to control and enslave mankind

I do know what happens after we die, I have been shown a vision of what spiritual life is to come...like a "trailer preview to the next show". This is one reason I'm so set on my beliefs, there are many that haven't been so lucky and I feel it my duty now to let others know.

There is way more to this than just "warm fuzzy feelings", and while on that subject, what exactly did you do about 'those feelings' you seem to have experienced? Nothing?

The physical life is temporary and heaven or hell is permanent.

Children go to God when they die. I guarantee they are happier there without sin and evil than they ever would have been here.

Once you are old enough to understand what the Bible says and you know of God and Jesus' salvation, then reject it over and over and over and over and over....then you die, you will not go to be with God in heaven.

Children are different when they do not comprehend the consiquences of sin completely.

Sorry for you, but I CAN prove all of that.

If you can give me scientific proof that what I said is not true, I will convert to your religion.

Took me a couple years researching the literature of the different scientific disciplines to arrive at the conclusions you are talking about.

Your only option is to believe it and give up your religion, or deny the facts and go on being ignorant and wasting your life on a non-existent Godů.which you ARE doing right now.

The list I wrote stands and has the requisite scientific evidence behind it.

Satan uses evil to 'kill, steal and destroy'.

God protects His people from evil (when they follow Him and obey Him).

America has thrown God out of its schools, courts, jobs, politics and now everyone wants to blame the evil that Satan does here on God???....you guys need to make up your mind, do you want God or not?

When God is not welcome, His Hedge of Protection is not welcome either, in other words...

**** God takes His protection away from rebellious nations.****

and allows satan to take over...just like what's happening all over America...a spirit of 'anti-christian' has embedded itself.

God was never "thrown out of schools". That is a ridiculous claim to make if you believe in God. What happened was that the illegal activity of organized prayer in schools was abolished. Nothing more.

You must have a very weak God if he can be thrown out of schools that easily.
