I can't even believe why you THINK you're in charge of sending men to Hell or not. It's not up to YOU. It's up to God.

And in my opinion, if he is as merciful as you(Christianity) say, he will accept this man to Heaven.

POOF! Light, out of nowhere.

POOF! The Earth, out of nowhere.
"God said 'Let US make man in OUR image'".
POOF! "God" is now a sculptor with partners, or advisors who suddenly has an "image of man". Out of nowhere.
Now, notice, nano, that "god" said "let US make man in OUR own image" NOT "let ME make man in MY own image".
Someone else was there besides "god". Who was it? Who was with "god" at the beginning?
I'm looking at it and I don't see where it says that he created "the heavens and earth" from "nothing", or "nowhere".

"I" don't feel persecuted. They don't have what it takes to make me feel inferior to either one of them.

Apparently I am, based on the last several posts you have made.

What does my objecting to your attacking people have to do with my feeling superior? I just think your behavior on this site stinks.

That pretty well says what I have also said here several times. Based on the whole picture as depicted in the Bible, only a masochist would want to spend eternity with such a monster as is depicted especially in the Old Testament.

<quoted text> I notice that is the only context in which one can define right and wrong. Here is a few facts you ignore. While the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt for 400 years the Canaanites were given that amount of time to repent. Their offenses are listed in Scripture. Since most here claim they know Scripture they will have no problem finding them.(HA HA) The Israelites cried out to God and God eventually delivered Israel via a series of judgements. Pharoah had babies killed and abused the Israelites and judgement came down. Later Israel became a nation which divided and eventually both Israel and Judah was sent off into slavery because they kept messing up with God. You don't have to believe in God to understand the basic themes. In a general sense a train of abuses over a certain period of time brings judgement. That is a general theme. Exception include the book of Job and Joseph who were good characters and yet was handed difficult circumstances. The fact being you have your mind made up about things you know little about. And i am not in the mood to teach kindergarden Christianity to a bunch of ingrates.
You can "teach" us "ingrates" about christianity all you want - it doesn't matter, there is no justification for a so called perfect, merciful god condoning slavery. The circumstances do not matter, and in fact only make clear just how twisted your god's "morality" is, because he is necessarily responsible for the circumstances that required his judgement. He created the situation in which the "bad guys" persecuted the "chosen people." He delivered the chosen people from bondage, and then he gave his tacit approval of slavery by handing down guidelines for what you hilariously refer to as "mild slavery." How does that make any sense? It doesn't - you just need it to make sense so that you can consider your god moral even while knowing of his many immoral actions and words.

And it's funny that you basically accuse me of being closed minded. Provide me with evidence of your god, and I will have no choice but to believe. I doubt that you could claim that anything would convince you to leave christianity - you are indoctrinated so hard that you are inexplicably trying to defend slavery in the name of your god.

A tip - Trying to paint god as a moral agent who endorsed slavery is not the best way to get anyone to believe in your god.

<quoted text> Right. <quoted text> No. <quoted text> God made beings with will and some chose the wrong things and there was consequences. A world in men can freely choose good and evil is better than a world where man can only do good. So you dicked up on your premise and your conclusion is wrong.
Lol. God creates humans, gives them free will, surrounds them with temptations, and bases salvation around belief while withholding all evidence of his existence - and then punishes his creations for behaving exactly how he knew they would. Sounds legit.

But I always have the common courtesy to kill my victims quickly, I never torture them eternally, or wish that upon them.

The Old Testament firmly states that if your child does not listen to you, or grant you the respect a parent should have, then you should take him to the out-lands and stone him to death..

Imagine that in modern society!
Oh wait... stoning actually still DOES happen

In my fair opinion, and out of the life experience given me, I'm going to lash out an argument stating that the most judgmental religion I have ever met, is Christianity, with their parochial view.

And I've been a christian for 17 years, please don't tell me I have no idea what I'm talking about. I chose atheism because of this.

That's true, but it has come to my attention that many devout people who follow the Bible 100% have still not stoned their disobedient children. Surely those parents are destined for the hottest place in that lake of fire.
