Maybe you should rephrase the question....
"Why does God have the same faults as man?" implies that all of the faults that all men can have is apparent in God as well.
In vengeful a fault?
"Is vengeful a fault?" .....Vengeful...."Seeking to HARM someone in return for a perceived injury." What happened to the Christian doctrine of "Turn the other cheek?" Yeah, I think wanting to hurt anyone is certainly a fault. You apparently have no problem with people hurting other or even killing them, especial if they're little children. They're biblically innocent and will not perish.

<quoted text>So you BELIEVE, but have no evidence that such a thing actually happens. Neurosurgeons know that even if a small part of the brain is damaged it can cause severe problems. People can't remember the names of tools, forget names of loved ones, are suddenly unable to walk or speak. But you tell me that if the entire brain is destroyed, these children don't PERISH. Neuroscience shows that when the brain is dead, life is extinguished. Since all we are resides in the brain, our memories, our intellect, everything about us is contained in the brain, and when the brain dies, so do we. Now, if you care to dispute what the experts in neurosurgery say is true, then be my guest. I know, your next statement deals with another magical device called a "SOUL." If a "soul" exists and is present i our bodies the medical science should be able to detect it right? OH, I forgot, its magical. Science can't discover Magical things like a soul, how convenient for you. You can make shit up, then say because it's magic science can't detect it, too friggin funny.
Once again you can't have a problem with then Sandy Hook incident, the children that died were biblically innocent, and they didn't perish. I'm sorry you think the slaughter of 20 little children is ok, most of us with compassion and caring are devastated. Another example of the damage that religion does to the mind.

You're a very opinioated little fella, aren't ya?

You can't give me any examples of God having faults.

All you do is display your twisted representation of the Bible.

<quoted text>Very well, I'l rephrase the question:
Why does God possess these faults that are present in man.
1.) Anger
2.) Vanity
3.) Vengeance
4.) Immorality
5.) Disregard for huma life
6.) Lack of compassion.
I'll start with these!!!
1. God’s anger is not arbitrary or petty; He is angry "with the wicked" Romans 1:18.

2. Vanity is wanting praise we don't deserve. God is a being of immeasurable worth who performs acts of immeasurable worth.

3. Vengence only belongs to God and He will repay.

4. You are completely impotent to define the term “moral".

5/6. While the atheist (you) may claim not to like God’s actions, if he admits that there is a legitimate standard of morality that is not based on subjective human whims, then he has forfeited his atheistic position.

If it is wrong for us to kill, then how can God kill so many in the Old Testament? The answer is, because God is God. The Author of life has the right to take life. IOW, man can't play God, but certainly God can play God.

That all of our memories, are intellect, our personalities, who we are as opposed to another human, all resides in our brains in a FACT. When our brains die, we as an organism die is a FACT. These FACTS are NOT my opinion, but are FACTS. Learn the difference between someone's opinion, "God exists." And a FACT, there is no supportive evidence that a God exists. See the difference?.........No I didn't think so!!!!

1.) ANGER is a human trait, period. I don't care what the catalyst is.

2.) VANITY is a human trait, period. Your Gods first 4 commandments deal with his sense of vanity.

3.) VENGENCE is a human trait, period. No vengeance does not belong only to God, we as human possess it.

4.) Morality is judged by society and is a product of society, not an invisible deity.

I'm glad you have demonstrated that your God has morals inferior to man's. I, You, the person next door, all of us have higher moral standards than your God. You may try and exempt your God for all moral standards, but in the end he looks like a complete psychopathic murderer, with little or no compassion. Compassion that is part of almost every human being, your God lacks. Thanks for showing us all why your God has earned the name "Demon God."

Or #6.... One chooses to believe in God because they know He's real.
You forgot that one.
<quoted text>
The original pronunciation is not known, "Yahweh" is the assumed way of saying YHWH.
YHWH is roughly tranlsated to "he who creates", with the Y being "he" and the HWH being "who creates" or "causes to be".
It's a description, not a name.
I created a baby and gave birth to him.
That makes me a "creator"..or more precisely, a "creatrix."
Hey, I'm a GODDESS!
You will address me henceforth as "Goddess!"

False. According to your Bible, babies are born in sin (Psalm 51:5) http://bible.cc/psalms/51-5.htm .
So, if babies are sinful, and the Bible is true, Romans 6:23 applies here, which says that the wages of sin are death. http://bible.cc/romans/6-23.htm
This is (one of) the problems with Christianity - it attempts to take the most heinous, inhumane, abhorrent things which have ever been written, and then tie them up with a pretty little bow and say that it's good.

Yeah, they do that a lot, I think it's because they make NO sense when talking to people of superior intelligence. Talking to themselves somehow validates the imaginary god thing they believe in. Kind of sad don't you think!!

The reason he didn't say "God exists" is because God does not exist, and there is absolutely no reason to believe he exists until you have some form of evidence.

Bible Verse Of The Day

Friday, December 28, 2012
__________

— 1 John 1:9 —

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."

__________

Secrets lurk inside most of us like buried treasure, even their value is dubious. Some people assume their secrets are safe, since they remain convinced that God does not exist. Others are too busy covering their sins to consider the consequences. However we handle our secrets, two truths remain: nothing hides from God, and no one escapes the woe of secret sins. Trust God with your confessions and repentance. The God who sees and knows your secret sins also sees and knows your broken heart. And he forgives.

Hint-hint, "your god" as in something YOU believe in and some of us don't. It is a polite way of asking YOU about YOUR beliefs, got it?

Why is it cowardly to not believe in your deity? You have one belief, others have their own.

Also, I see no hypocrisy in his statement....where did that come from? You seem angry, where's the famous Christian love?
