My complaint is not that you claim your god will try to make it all better, its that you think the promise of paradise justifies his monstrous behaviour.
I never said "the promise of paradise justifies" anything.
According to you there is no attrocity that isn't justified by the opium of heaven.
Again, I never said that.
You said that.....The scriptures bring out many instances that say a christian will suffer
Romans 8:17 for instance. In that scripture it refers to an inheritance provided that we suffer together...whats the inheritance? Everlasting life in Gods Kingdom? Christ and the scriptures quite obviously give on the idea that suffering is or will be justified by the hope in the future.
we are not speaking of what all people justify suffering with but what suffering God allows to happen and why....
According to the Bible all humans suffer from sin and death yes? But a Christian or a Theist feels the end justifies the means because of the hope in everlasting life later.
i know that you did not say the words that cofty implied there...however he was demonstrating that Christians or theists generally feel that all the terrible tuings that happen and God allows is justified by the promise that God will make it all better later.
am i correct cofty?
