First, I hate the word religion, even tho' Christianity is a religion. I hate it because there are MANY religions. Christianity is the one and only true religion because those who are christians believe in Jesus Christ as their Saviour! No others believe this. Some think he was a prophet, etc......! Some don't believe in him at all.<quoted text>
The tribulation is a modern phenomenon never mentioned by Christ or his disciples. Your God tortures people. Even if they are disbelievers, it's downright narcissistic, cruel, and mindless nonsense.
This might be a generational thing, and I am certain you were taught this nonsense by someone—but tell me this, did Christ seem like he was mean to you? Why is your God so damned vicious?
He's a loving God. Preaching about him as if he were Adolf Hitler suits no one, and you will never convert people by making God into a brute. He gave us Free Will. You had the Free Will to either read the scriptures and study theology, or to be a follower of useless tripe.
If you know verses that can back up your arguments, besides the so-called flood, Sodom and Gomorrah—both done for genetic purification, and not just to rid the earth of sinners—then please, show me the verse. Christ came to show you the love of his message, not to placate a bunch of really bad theologians.
Yet you can call me a blasphemer and condemn me to hell with the rest. One day, when the time comes, I will prove to you the reality of God's word—not this nonsense you call Religion. It's pure zeal.
If you think you can prove what you call the "reality of God's word", go ahead!
I believe every word in the Holy Bible to be the inspired word of God. He inspired those who wrote it! It was written over a period of years, in different parts of the world and by different people........and it connects perfectly! Coincidence..........NO!
No human(s) could have done this on their own.
You say my God is mean? He isn't mean! He is a righteous God that died for the sins of every man on this earth. He died on the Cross for us because he loved us so much.
Rev. 7:14 (written by John)
And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.......etc.!
......."Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath (tribulation) but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
