God is only human?

So you worship another human?

You're terrible at this.

I would advise you to visit Egypt, in particular The Valley of the Kings, Luxor. Also the catacombs in Rome.

Your hero 'MOSES' does not exist in Egyptian history.

As you 'the tourist' view the beautiful things of antiquity, the tour guides will gladly provide their countries ancient history... guess whom is noticeably absent?

And if, after blended, his brain begins reorganizing and self-replicating, then the materialist viewpoint will be vindicated.

After all, you did say all that is required for life is physics and chemistry.

These are available in your local bookstore.

Let us know how it pans out.

Stupid baseless assumption.

Why?
You seem to be having trouble with this relatively simple question.
We will be judged to see if we passed the test. We're given about seventy years on this earth and the direction our spirit takes after death depends on the condition of our soul (body). Those who live in sin will die in sin. The righteous have hope in their death. There is coming a time when God will bring his law of life to the earth. "For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem".

Okay, you've officially shown that you have no knowledge on this subject.

The question is simple - why must mankind be judged by any god?

You cannot answer or you realize that there is no answer.

Carry on.

We were created in the image and likeness of God and it's always been Gods intent to live on earth. God is a Spirit and would take on a soul (body) in the last days. God needs to experience life the way his creation has, God will return to spirit form and live forever.

There is no proper evidence for this. When you die nothing happens. Its exactly the same as before you were conceived i.e. nothing, as you do not exist. That is the reality.

Pharoah said to Moses he would erase him from the history of Egypt. Just because there's no record of him doesn't mean he didn't exist. Egypt was also sorely defeated at the Red sea, I wouldn't want to remember and recount that either, it would just give validity to belief in the God of Israel.

I thought I was Jewish, but I've been told by Jews that I'm not. I know I'm not ethnically Jewish. I practice the truth Daniel 8:12 "...and it cast down the truth to the ground, and it practiced and prospered".

I suppose you now realize that you have validated the 'Wizard of Oz' exactly as your savior.

As you've said: "Just because there's no record of him doesn't mean he didn't exist"

I thought I answered your question several times. Only the righteous will enter heaven. If we haven't made atonement for our sin, we will die in our sin. Heaven is the domain of God and he cannot abide with sin and wickedness.

The tribal God of the old testament is a revolting Deity. I would not want anything to do with religious people who identify themselves with such nonsense.

However the majority of Jews are secular and humanist and have no interest in religion. From what I have read, there are no Jewish population near here.

Stop lying about heaven and god, none of it is real.

How do you explain near death experience or the energy that is in our bodies. God is energy and it cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form. The electrical impulses have to go somewhere. When we die, we lose weight and heat, that is caused by the spirit leaving our body. Heat is a form of energy and also has mass. E=mc2
