Do you think that God laughs?<quoted text>...that they supposedly don't believe in...iyai!lol..rofl. And they wonder why Christians simply laugh at or shrug at their Criticisms of Christianity, because their claim of atheism is just not believable.
If God is how many of you describe him...
I would think that laughter would be the last thing that he did. If he is how he is described by most of you I would think that he would be sad...heart broken that somehow he had not been able to reach someone.
Do you think God laughs at Christians that use scripture to annoy others...uses it as a belittlement to another human being?
Excerpt from Barnes notes...
Jesus wept - It has been remarked that this is the shortest verse in the Bible; but it is exceedingly important and tender. It shows the Lord Jesus as a friend, a tender friend, and evinces his character as a man. And from this we learn:
1. That the most tender personal friendship is not inconsistent with the most pure religion. Piety binds stronger the ties of friendship, makes more tender the emotions of love, and seals and sanctifies the affections of friends.
4. We have here an instance of the tenderness of the character of Jesus, The same Savior wept over Jerusalem, and felt deeply for poor dying, sinners. To the same tender and compassionate Saviour Christians may now come Hebrews 4:15; and to him the penitent sinner may also come, knowing that he will not cast him away.
Number 4 in Barnes' explanation of John 11:35 - Jesus wept - I think applies to my words above...would God/Jesus laugh?
