Anyway, to respond to your rant:
I didn't really realize there were so many cruel minded, mean spirited people on this forum.
I didn't realize there was someone who has the amazing ability to judge the hearts and motives of people on this forum.
There are folks here who believe that God is still cursing the ground and who believe that God will one day smite every living thing again (only with fire instead of water - thanks a lot!).
Please explain who these people are. I don't see anyone of that description here.
There are others here who imagine they can look at things from a "divine perspective" instead of just the human perspective of everyone else. I reckon they also imagine they have the mind of God and can see things from God's point of view, as that is what "divine perspective" would imply.
Then you really haven't thought one iota of what people mean by the divine perspective. Instead of going off on angry retorts to what you think
people are saying it might be polite to ask them what they mean. If you asked me what I meant by the divine perspective you'd get a very straightforward answer that has nothing to do with the haughtiness you label us with.
These same people would tell me that I am using only my own human reasoning and understanding. Well, I'm interested to know how we can have any other kind.
By reading the Bible. Have a look at Isaiah 55 for starters.
It's this very "holier than thou" attitude and the imagined knowledge of "God's way of looking at things" of certain people that turned me into an atheist decades ago.
Why do you think it is holier than thou? For myself personally Jeppo seems like a very decent chap and I wouldn't dare suggest I am holier than him. I see things from a different angle and I feel very privileged to be able to offer the divine perspective on things, albeit from a veiled vision, and I am putting forward what I think that perspective tells us about suffering. What is wrong with that?
Maybe . . . just maybe, if certain people would get off their pedestals of their exclusive righteousness and actually did "love thy neighbor", in deed, instead of just mouthing the words "be thou warmed and filled", there just might be a lot less suffering in the world.
That's true. Are you implying that people who talk about the Bible and God's love aren't manifesting it? Well of course, there are hypocrites, lots of them, but since you don't know one blasted thing about people on here I'd appreciate it you getting off what seems like your
holier than thou pedestal.
But no, wait for the evil ("shudder") and worldly organizations like the RCC to rush in to help people in trouble instead. Yeah, that's the ticket. That's what Jesus would want you to do as his followers, send 'em some tracts and leaflets instead of food and clothes, that should ease the pains of the naked and starving.
You have no clue, as usual. You display your utter ignorance on this forum time and time again.
