you are misunderstanding. For one, He sent His son to die for our sins. Not just to meet people and preach.
Your **proof** of this .. "son" would be?

Hint: the bible isn't proof-- too flawed.

What ELSE do you have, apart from the bible, to prove this Jewsus character was a real, historical person?

None of the above addresses THE QUESTION YOU CANNOT ANSWER:

How do you explain this:

The very existence OF the bible?

Is proof that there are NO GODS who CARE.

None.

Why?

Because the bible is the direct cause of more evil than anything else-- for starters.

I'm so sorry.

The only cure we have at present? Is keep bombarding with real, facts.

Sometimes, if you take an oblique approach to the affair? That is, work on the edges where things are not nearly so contentious.

Once you've whittled away at that concrete-barrier, the rest begins to crumble as well.

But it takes time-- it took me more than 10 years to go from a True Believer™ through a theologically-liberal christian through deism to finally agnosticism/atheism.

Education is the only sure-cure for faith.

That's because education deals in facts, where faith deals in ... well... faith.

Which is just another way to say "lies"....

God is God thus He has always been. Angel I'm not falling for your nonsense. No matter what I say you will not accept it. Trust me I've been down this road before. As I said earlier, Jesus himself could come to earth today, sit down with you and explain it all, and you would still argue and not accept it. Thats just how you are. You are so entrenched in your worldview that nothing contrary to it is acceptable. There is no way you can know there is no God. Your pride will not let you even admit that much. Sad.
Every god is god, and always has been.

We want truth, but every time we ask you for evidence of the god you're lying to us about, you start screaming telling us we're all going to hell..

All because you cannot backup the worthless bullsh*t your cult calls universal truth.

The Bible contradicts itself plenty of times without any help from me.

Most of the posters here were, at one time, theists of one denomination or another, mostly christian. It was when we were believers that we read the bible. In many cases, that was the beginning of the end of our belief.

I don't waste my time reading the bible anymore, but that does not alter the fact that I have done so in the past.

Who cares? If the point is valid, and logical, it's worth repeating. Your points however, are illogical, irrational, and without reason. And you guys still repeat your BS after 2000 years of being debunked.

Nahhhh. He's right. It's you that is wrong.
Really? He was commenting on how I grew up and how I came to my current views on religion. He was doing this by guessing, incorrectly I might add, like he knows anything about me at all.

His views were incorrect, yet he continues to comment on matters of which he has no way of knowing.

The only thing more ignorant ,my dear yes man, would be for you to try to back his claim up like you know also.

How could you possibly know what you are talking about?

But yet they didn't believe either, even after getting proof. So getting proof is not the answer. It just boils down to the fact that atheists , and especially anti-theists, want to be evil people and to hate God. It's why they will suffer an eternal punishment in the lake of fire, prepared just for them and their god Satan.
come on man, how old are you? That's not the way an adult speaks.

The bible proved that you are not courageous, but instead a coward. It tends to draw people like you out.
Then out of shame and disgrace, you profess your weak willed faith in atheism.
You are an epic failure.
The bible drew me out as a sane person. No sane person could believe in:

talking snakes;

talking donkeys;

a dowry of foreskins;

magic fruit that makes you smart;

the earth being only 6,000 years old;

creation of light prior to the creation of sources for that light;

a flood capable of covering the earth, even the mountain tips, with the water needed to do so magically appearing then magically disappearing;

a book inspired by a perfect, all knowing being that describes the earth as flat and at the center of the universe, with the sun in orbit around it;

a book supposedly inspired by an all-knowing being who cannot calculate the value of pi to even a single decimal place;

a 450 foot wooden boat, which is absurd enough in and of itself, carrying two or seven of every species of animal, plus sufficient food to keep them alive;

that Noah managed to obtain a kangaroo and a platypus from Australia, llamas from South America, polar bears and reindeer from the arctic, penguins from the antarctic, etc., build a huge boat all in a relatively short time, and without previously knowing that North America, South America, the far east, the arctic, Australia and Antarctica even existed;

Abraham's wife having a child at age 90;

Abraham circumcising himself (ouch!), his son and 318 servants all in one day.

Just to mention a few of hundreds of examples.

If that's your idea of perfect wisdom, there's really no hope for you.
