So to be a good person, one has to accept "god's" ways? Which way might that be?
The way "god" killed untold men, women, children, animals etc. with a "great flood" all because his creation did not do what he wanted it to?
The way "god" threatens the torture of a "hell" if you do not follow him and worship him the way he wants?
The way "god" will allow a innocent child to die of a disease or be molested by a person of the church.
You mean those "ways of god"? They all seem like good reasons to me for the rejection of your "god".
Repent??? Repent for what? For being human? For being born? For not believing that your "god" exists? Silly...
It's nice to see that you're starting to accept that God is real.

Now all we gotta do is get you to understand the OTHER parts of the Bible...

Glad we could help.
No need for you to pat yourself on the back. The philosophy and concept behind "The Golden Rule" existed way before christianity.

Sorry to burst your bubble but christianity does not hold the patent on being good to others.

The oldest known form of the Golden Rule is from Ancient Babylon in 1780 BC. It was called The Code of Hammurabi.

There's no telling where they got that rule from, so it could've been from God.

Sorry.

Sorry, that isn't specific. There are so many gods that have been/are being worshipped.

Of course you're wrong. Early man knew these principals way before your demon God decided it was time to show his face a mere 2,000 years ago. Cooperation to these early humans meant better success at hunting, better protection from other tribes, knowing that if I steal from you, that the same may done to me. Compassion and common decency is NOT mandated by a God thing, sorry, we without God do just fine, and have for well over 200,000 years.

No, God.

Shiva is shiva.

Allah is Allah.

Vishnu is Vishnu.

Brahman is Brahman.

God is God.

"God decided it was time to show his face a mere 2,000 years ago" ?!?

Is that what you think?

You're so wrong on that very basic piece of info, I'm gonna assume the rest of what you have to say is equally wrong.

So you're referring to some sort of random, generic god.

Got it.

What proof is there that (a) your god is real and (b) your god is the one true god (as opposed to all of the other gods that have been/are being worshipped)?

Nope.

My God is so great He doesn't need a name.

"god" names are left for those false gods that need an identity.

Worship God. Believe in Him.

Then worship a god.

You'll see the difference.
