If he's not asking and thus commanding me, and He is God and I am but a mere mortal, then why am I not doing as he commands? Surely he possesses the power to make me comply.
If god wants me to choose, why does he only want me to choose the one proper choice?
If he wants me to do what he says then he should first take me out of this hell, and make me feel indebted by doing so. Why should I obey him when he has the power to grant me whatever I wish for, but refuses to do anything for me at all?
You have the choice of being with Him in Heaven for eternity, or Hellfire and soul erasure. The choice is yours and always has been.>>295471
God doesn't owe you anything. In fact you should praise Him because everything good that has ever happened to you was because of Him
>>295472>God doesn't owe you anything.
What a coincidence, I don't own him shit either.>you should praise Him because everything good that has ever happened to you was because of Him
So was everything bad, and my life experience has been fairly negative to say the least.
All abrahamic religions are lies . Humans are not created we’re just evolved and related to other mammals. Its really funny as science progressed god’s job did get diminished people even believed earthquakes and other natural events were gods doing but every century science explained those with rationality. You just believe in lies christtard.
>What's your excuse?
For one, God doesn't exist.
For two, there is no divine will behind anything that happens or exists but only the Absurd and causality/fate.
God is what happens when you take human rationality and thinking to its extremes. You being to see patterns and plans and signs "everywhere", even though most of life simply doesn't make any sense no matter how you look at it. God = human rationality on steroids.
>>295527>No divine will>except fate, of course.
This atheist can't even into atheism properly hahaha
>>295466>God is not asking you, He is commanding (You) to obey Him. I've decided I'm going to stop making excuses for myself.
really? even obey what he says about your possessions?
>Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. Luke 12:33>So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:33>No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money. Matthew 6:24
Fate isn't divine will, it is what the ancients called the chain of causality. You can think of it as blind luck or chance too. In greek mythology even the gods were subjects to fate.
Personally I don't want to be "good" but I also don't want to be "evil". I just want to be me.
Then consider this me spitting in his face in defiance
Too fucking bad he's dead huh?
If the world hates you, know they hated me first.
ahhhh, the classic christian victim complex i know so intimately. a great blight upon the world.
my excuse, if you can call it that, is that I have not found out which god it is that is asking me to do such a thing.
it is narrowed down somewhat by the abrahamic faiths being the most hardline on this notion of eternal punishment, but it is by no means the exclusive holder of such a concept and if you are just slightly the wrong flavor of abrahamic you are just as damned as if you had never come to faith at all, so even if one settles on abrahamism you have to be extremely careful about which kind you choose, because a mistake is eternally deadly.
If there is a god and he wants me to do things, he needs to get better at communicating his wishes. Right now I have no reason to believe such a being even exists.
If you don't feel toxic 24/7 despair, you have god in your hearts
do mormons REALLY believe "as we are now,god once was,as god is, we will be"?
or is that a liberal against them?
Go groom your next patsy on shitchan, fag!
You really cant turn us astray, for you unbelievers I'll pray.
I take pleasure in, cause I found just what I used to be taking
a look for. You've ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day.
Who is God?
I have tried many times. I have prayed, I have read the Bible, I even went to church and confessed and I feel no different. I can't feel God. I'm physically unable to have faith. I'm not an atheist though. I can't tell if there's a God or not, but if there is one then I can't feel it. Maybe God is indifferent to us or maybe he rejoyces in our missery. Whatever it is, I don't give a fuck anymore. I feel nothing.
Born a normal life, open-minded and free.
Then a stranger came and said listen to me:
"I'll show a life, the life in the name
Of God. He will be your staff and rod!"
God is Existence itself. You are in fact experiencing Him right now, you just fail to recognise Him for what He is.
Then how can one do anything other than obey Him?
This would be a good creative writing prompt
Why did you link this?
Just open and read the fucking lyrics, dude.
>>295466>What's your excuse?
I am not npc or faggot, op.
>>295472>God doesn't owe you anything.
Including not sanding you to hell, normalfag.
A place where zealots and normalfags like you belong to.
not cool thats a white jesus, and jesus was african
>He is commanding (You) to obey Him
and what will he do if I don't obey? make my life a horrible experience? lol.
Have you considered that maybe our lives are horrible experiences because we aren't obeying Him?
Death's vastness holds no peace. I come at the end of the long road. Neither human, nor devil… all bends to my will.
