Your "logic" fails.
Does god have free will? Does god sin? Free will misses the point, it is the fact that god either screwed up (if he didn't want sin)or he wanted sin by making humans so morally challenged. Giving humans good moral sense does not make them robots any more than god possessing good moral sense makes him a robot.

But what will happenen to you when you find out god values logic and reason far more than he does blind ignorant faith??? Me thinks the odds are not in your favor.....
Fortunately things are not placed in the order of your thoughts, the bible says that the just shall live by FAITH and not by " logic and reason" as it pertains to man's reasoning, those of us who truly believe knows that the odds are VERY MUCH stacked in our favor so long as we continue to press forward in Christ.

Then he should send himself to hell since he is the root of all sin. You don't blame a defective car on the car, you blame the maker.

Doctor Reality, who are you trying to convince with that dishonest username, yourself? Reality is admitting there is no knowledge of any gods and therefre no rational reason to believe in god. Reality is accepting the overwhelming evidence of a corpse and the fact that memory and awareness require working senses and a working brain in order to exist and that these functions cease upon death of the brain. Delusional is to believe mammals are half animal half ghost and that a corpse does not represent what it so plainly represents. If you were an honest ethical person you would at least represent yourself honestly Doctor Delusional.

So what, the bible was written by morally challenged ignorant humans, not god. You have no excuse. You are controlled by fear is all.

Set Boundaries (3)
Lev 23:26-25:55, Matt 7:1-14, Ps 74:1-11, Pr 2:6
'...like a city with broken-down walls.' Proverbs 25:28

Permeable boundaries. Well-adjusted people find the right balance which allows them to invite others into their personal space without allowing filtration, manipulation or domination. They know how to say "yes" to what's healthy and "no" to what's not. Permeable boundary people, on the other hand, allow others to permeate their lives at will, siphon off their time and energy, dictate their options, and deprive them of other important relationships. Unable to say "no", they permit others to make them feel guilty, obligated, uncaring, or even "unChristian" if they withhold what's demanded. They inconvenience themselves, their families and their friendships to facilitate the endless demands of the seemingly helpless, disempowered, irresponsible user, believing they are being kind and helpful. The helper's toll is immense, often leading to emotional, physical, social and spiritual overload, while the "helpee" feels increasingly dependent, irresponsible and entitled-not appreciating, and sometimes even resenting, the helper's efforts. Permeable boundary people are unaware that their 'open' sign is always illuminated, attracting a deluge of other people's needs they feel personally responsible for. They carry the weight of much that's wrong in the world, feeling exhausted, anxious, inadequate and guilty, taking it personally that they can't do more to fix things. And it leaves them feeling 'used'.'A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls.' Understand this: You can't take charge of your own life while you're overwhelmed feeling responsible for other people's lives. Set some boundaries, and live the life God gave you to live!

Who created Adam Lanza with his serious mental problems, your god? Then your god is responsible for the Newtown killings. Is your god unwilling or unable to prevent mentally disturbed violent people? Is your god unwillijng or unable to prevent phychopaths?

Neither are you, liar. Last I knew a belief in god was a matter of faith not a matter of fact. There no knowledge of any gods. To admit a belief requires faith is an admission the beleif can not stand on its own merits, in other words it's crap.

So the best thing Chrisitans could do for anyone is to stop spreading their religion.
That makes Chrisitanity the most vile, hateful and evil religion on the planet.

"because it is a FACT that human life begins at conception"

It is also a FACT that human life ends at death. What part of a corpse has you so confused? If a corpse can not be considered proof that death ends personal memory and awareness then NOTHING we know of could ever be said to be proven. We know for a FACT that memory and awareness are functions of an organ called the brain and we know for a FACT that the function of that organ stops upon death no different from any other organ and to think awareness continues after death is like thinking your blood still flows after your heart has stopped beating. You are a coawrd, a dishonest death denier denying FACTS. There could not possibly be any more conclusive evidence that death ends life than a corpse yet you cowards will deny it. You cling to a foolish belief in magic out of fear.

The True Grace of God
Prequel
Part 15

Grace and Freewill (Giving With A Willing Heart)

1. "Tell the Israelites to bring Me an offering. You are to receive the offering for me from each man WHOSE HEART PROMPTS HIM to give." Ex. 25:2

2. "Each man should give what HE HAS DECIDED IN HIS HEART to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7

A. The first verse above is an example of Grace under the Law... the 2nd verse above is an example of grace after the Law. Now, with that said...there are all kinds of trickeries and guilt tactics that "people" and some preachers use in order to raise funds or bilk you out of your money, time or other material substance. Not all preachers are knowingly doing this... some use certain tactics "to get" the people to give out of denominational traditions... like having people stand in a money line at the altar, so-to-speak. The above verse are speaking on offerings but I have to say, that many Believers don't believe we are under the law and I agree, they "strongly" believe we are under Grace for Salvation only...(okay, understood and I agree with that also) but yet, they'll quote over and over and over again the famous Malachi verse (which is under the Law) that says, and I'm paraphrasing, that you are cursed with a curse if you don't tithe (that is giving 10% of your gross to the church)... yet the tithe was agrarian in that Malachi situation and there were three types of tithes. Now, I understand that today when a person tithes it is non-agrarian but what bothers me most about that is some of these preachers went to seminary to learn about the bible, how to study it and such... yet some don't make mention of this and what is truly in the bible. Now, the tithe that was given before the Law was under Grace... Abraham tithed without threat, trickery, guilt or compulsion.... He obviously gave freely out of a willing heart.... not only that.. he gave the other 90% of the booty (the stuff he got out of the little war he had) back to the losers.

B. We should give out of the kindness of our hearts and not under trickeries. Not all churches and televangelists (as they are called) use compelling tactics for people to give... some just simply ask in order to keep the ministry going as they ought to. Now it's not only churches or televangelists, but there are all kinds of scams out there that may seem godly in appearance. Did you ever give to someone out of a willing heart and they got mad because you didn't give enough!? <<<sigh>>> Well, God is not like that. Jesus didn't even get mad at the young rich ruler (who had great riches) when he walked away. The scriptures says, Jesus loved him and Jesus didn't chase him or use any trickery. He wasn't after his money... In that situation which pertained to that ruler, Jesus was after a willing heart that would follow Him.

C. Whatever the case may be... God does want us to give but He wants us to give "freely", "wisely" and "without compulsion"... He is not after our money He is after our hearts. But it just so happens that we put our loyalties more towards our monies. Still yet, He is looking for our willingness and what we have decided in our own hearts to give.

3. Exodus 35:20-21 and verse Ex. 35:29 also.(freewill offering)

"I am further convinced that part and parcel of the Davidic lineage idea was that one was part of a dynasty, made up of brothers and sons. And this is what we find in the Jesus movement as James, the brother of Jesus, becomes his successor, and Simon, another brother (some say cousin but of the same royal lineage), takes on the leadership following the death of James. Yose, Jesus’ second brother after James, had apparently died by the time of the death of James in 62 CE or he would have likely been next in line. All of this evidence fits “hand-in-glove” with what we find in the “Jesus family tomb” at Talpiot."
