Hey, there, Daddy-O... peace to you... and "phooey" right back at 'cha... 'cause you KNOW better!
Fooey. Humans are already held to a higher standard than God.
Uh, actually, we're not... and you know it. Just pickin' at straws, you are. Those "high" standards that you're speaking of are imposed on humans... by humans. In what have I judged you, dear one? In what have I been TOLD to judge you? Nothing. And you know it. I have been TOLD to... and DO... love you... and you know that, too. It is all that I owe you... and I pay my debt. You know that, too. And THAT is the "standard" I am held to... and you know that... too.
Humans are not supposed to kill.
Not true. Humans... are not supposed to commit MURDER... and there is a difference. And you know it. We all "kill" everyday... if not in our hearts... then in our minds. And if not there, then certainly in the meals we eat and pests we exterminate. And you know this, too.
God kills millions every day, rather than saving them, or fixing them so they don't have to die of every imaginable horror of disease.
Man... kills man. And you know this, too. It is man that disregards what is "good" for him... placing more value on his six figure home and five figure car... than on starving children who do not live near him... on keepin his Johnson "up"... than giving medicine to the sick (do you KNOW how many sick people could be cured on what they charge/spend on Viagra?!!). You know this, too.
(which he also created, BTW.).
Humans spread disease, Daddy-O. Just ask any Native American alive at around the time the Europeans got here. Ask any crack baby, or one born with AIDS...
Humans are not supposed to be jealous.
Because of the harm it would cause another human being... yes...
God is the most jealous being in the universe.
And He admits that. What 'god' does He cause harm by being so?
I got lotsa more.
'Course you do...
There's plenty damn good reason for God to speak up and to face the entire human race he created and explain himself and his actions and lack of action.
Oh, yeah... like YOU'RE gonna listen! You don' t even listen when someone is "sent" to you to PREPARE you for it... do you? Why? Because... you are like everyone else: you are afraid He IS going to speak... and you know you're not all that "clean"... so, you're not sure you want to hear what He has to say... to YOU! 'Cause, He ain't gonna talk to you about nobody else... BUT you. And you know that, too, don't 'cha? But... you ain't tryin' to hear that, are 'ya? 'Course not.
All he needs is to take five minutes of all that precious time that he spends personally talking to you, turn up the microphone to full volume and address all 6 billion of us simulatenously. I can arrange for a tele-conference if he needs it. If he did that, he would have 6 BILLION loyal believers instantly.
Oh, pleeze! Someone was "sent" to YOU. Did you listen? No, wait... let me ask the RIGHT question: did you WANT to? (Now be REAL careful here, Daddy-O, and remember the title of this thread. 'Cause no matter WHAT you or I tell these nice people here... WE both know what really took place, don't we, sittin' on the wall in Pacific Beach? What we REALLY discussed... what I asked you... and what you answered. Don't we?)
Nah! That's too easy! He'd rather do it the hard way and talk to people here-and-there who would then have us believe he's doing that without a shred of evidence to prove it.
You had your "evidence," Daddy-O. Unless you're a liar. And I truly don't think you're one. Again, be careful. Try to remember our conversation... and THINK before you respond.
Bible-God always did like to make things tough for us.
No. He actually made it QUITE easy for you. You didn't need to go anywhere, didn't need to buy anything. Nothing. He heard YOU... and responded: someone came. Yes? In answer to at least TWO things you prayed for. Yes? And such one SAID they were there... because they were sent. Yes? Careful, now...
I really don't understand him.
The saying is true.
I don't want to understand him.
Again, the saying is true and... therein lies the problem, doesn't it?
Hmmmm... maybe I erred: maybe SOME of us were made in His "image" after all. 'Cause you're goofy, too! Nahhh, only Adam (but then, looking at what he gave up, goofy doesn't even come close!)
Peace to you, my dear Daddy-O! My peace... AND my love... remain.
YOUR servant, friend, and a slave of Christ,
