<quoted text>
God is, at times, unjust.
When God is merciful he is unjust. It is impossible to deliver justice AND mercy at the same time, by definition.
Mercy occurs when a punishment is meted out that is LESS THAN what justice calls for.
So, if you define God as always just and sometimes merciful, then you're defining a God that cannot possibly exist. Like a five-sided square.
As usual, you continue to proclaim that your God exists, but again as usual I have demonstrated that your God is an impossibility and therefore does not exist.
God is ALWAYS merciful and ALWAYS just.
His mercifulness and justness are perfect and constant.
His mercy is demonstrated in His compassionate understanding.
His justness is demonstrated in His merciful judgment.
God is a just and merciful judge.
His judgment is merciful and His mercy is justified.
His justice takes everything into account and is fair and right in every separate case, rendering to each one that which is their due.

Believe what you want,there is absolutely nothing wrong with that but word of advice,don't assume anything about others because when you assume in your attempt to make an ass out me you will always end up making an ass out of yourself.
Now,I don't know what your problem with me is about that you feel the need to run me down like you did.
All I ever done was shared my experience with encounters of the paranormal,I am aware that those like you are skeptic about that and I respect that.
I'm not trying to make you believe anything that you do not want to believe.
I am not one of those fundies and I believe that is what you are assuming about me but feel free free to believe or not to believe what you want.

Why lie? The Big bang has never been proved.In fact, scientists not science have never proven even the seemingly obvious things.

I know that you do not deal in facts or truth, but here is some.

It is often said that proof is for alcohol and mathematics, as these are really the only areas where proof has any real meaning. "Proof" is something that the opponents of science are always clamouring for, yet is not actually something that science suggests it will give - specifically in the common sense definition of "proof" that suggests that a claim has been proven 100%.
Surprisingly to some, science does not deal in proof, in spite of the word being associated with science a whole lot more than perhaps it should be. Scientists will throw around phrases like "we've just proved our theory" when they should know better, but this can be excusable human nature. With some theories its very difficult to not think of them as proven, Newton's laws of motion, for instance, which have always and will always describe objects within the limits of those theories. Science as a method, however, deals not in proof but in evidence, and perhaps disproof when the evidence contradicts a hypothesis.
For example, finding a fingerprint at the scene of a crime may be construed by most people as proof that the owner of the fingerprint was, at some stage, at that location. Science would say that the fingerprint is evidence that somehow a means of leaving that fingerprint was at that location. More evidence can be collected that shows a person was there at the right time, or perhaps some evidence is shown that they weren't there. It is up to someone working in the world of science to put together a hypothesis which is consistent with this evidence when taken together. A scientist hasn't strictly proved anything by putting together this hypothesis, but they have constructed a realistic scenario based on their available evidence.

It is impossible to be ALWAYS merciful and ALWAYS just.

The definitions of "justice" and "mercy" make that very clear.

To be just, one has to mete out precisely the punishment that the crime calls for.

To be merciful, one has to mete out LESS THAN the punishment that the crime calls for.

For example, if you got a speeding ticket and the fine was $100, then the just thing for the judge to do would be to fine you $100.

However, if the judge shows mercy (first offense, etc.) then you would pay less than $100 or no fee at all.

It is impossible in that example for the judge to charge you $100 and also less than $100 at the same time.

Mercy and justice are mutually exclusive. It is impossible to be always just and always merciful.

http://www.pantheism.net/paul/index.htm
"I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one. You may call me an agnostic, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and our own being. " - Albert Einstein, letter to Guy H. Raner, Jr., September 28, 1949

not a single person has ever proved or demonstrated any ghosts, or any paranormal for that matter....it has been investigated many times and everyone has been exposed as a fraud....you want to keep believing nonsense, go for it....you are obviously dealing with some mental issues...
Believe what you want,walk your own path as for me,I don't have any mental issues,you don't know me that well enough nor anyone else to draw personal conclusions on the internet of whom you don't personally know.
I may have a bad attitude from time to time and that's normal because everybody gets into a bad attitude and then they snap out of it or cool off,no big deal for as long as you don't break the law.

Numbers 11:23 and what it means.....

How strong is God? It is easy to trust God when we see his mighty acts (the Israelites saw many), but after a while, in the routine of daily life, his strength may appear to diminish. God doesn't change, but our view of him often does. The monotony of day-by-day living lulls us into forgetting how powerful God can be. As Moses learned, God's strength is always available....

Mercy and justice are mutually exclusive. It is impossible to be always just and always merciful.
HE: "To be just, one has to mete out precisely the punishment that the crime calls for.
To be merciful, one has to mete out LESS THAN the punishment that the crime calls for."

To be just, is to determine, and mete out the punishment proportionate to the crime.
To be merciful is to mitigate a punishment, to lessen the severity or harshness of the punishment being meted out, to make it proportionate to the crime in particular individuals' cases .

HE: "... if you got a speeding ticket and the fine was $100, then the just thing for the judge to do would be to fine you $100."

If fines for offenses were pre-set and mandatory, it would not only be unjust, there'd be no need for judges.
EVERYONE who got a speeding ticket would HAVE TO pay the $100 fine - whether they'd been speeding 7 miles over the speed limit, or 40; whether they were rushing an injured child to the emergency room, or they habitually did 95 mph to get where they're going faster - the same penalty would still be imposed on all of them.
Without mercy, there would be no justice. It would not be just, were it unmerciful. Nothing unmerciful is just.

Again,I'm sorry that you feel that way and I have no beef about your disbelief of anything.
You are your own person and you have to choose your own path and,no,I wouldn't say that you are a mental case,I never once thought of that of you.
Skeptical,yes,but not a mental case.
