In short, you're a ****ing idiot.
Some vessels were created in honor of God, and some vessels for dishonor. All of them serve a purpose. All of these vessels had a choice, some accept, some do not. Saul for example persecuted and murdered many Christians, but when the Lord appeared to him he repented. A vessel created for dishonor becomes a vessel of honor. We all have choice, just because God knows the outcome does not matter. Sheesh complicated question, I fear I have not answered it well enough to your likening though : (

The God Who Wasn't There

Edit: I got lots more of these if you feel like educating yourself
I predict that at best you will ignore this, and at worst you will stick your fingers in your ear and make insane humming noises.

Very true, thus what i mentioned in another thread. There are three types of people in this world. Unbelievers, believers, and overcoming believers. Unbelievers are destined to an eternity of torment, mere believers will suffer the fate of the outer darkness for 1000 years before they obtain salvation. Overcoming believers will obtain the heavenly feast for 1000 years and then obtain salvation. If you believe that is great, but if you overcome the darkness of this age you will be rewarded greatly.

The master is furious and states why did you not put my talent in the bank to accure interest.

What this parable states is that to what much is given much is expected. Each person has a goal line they have to reach in God's Eyes proportional to what they received in this life. God will judge and understand certain circumstances.
What it states is open to interpretation.

It could mean that we should keep slaves, and should whip the stupid ones.

It could mean that god sees us as slaves and wants us to invest our money wisely, so we can give him back more money some day. (of course, this implies that we have an economy based on greed to invest with)

It could mean he expects those of us with the least to do more than those of us with the most, which is rather unreasonable.

To expect that God will bend an forgive you isn't that he hates you - that would be like expecting a burning hot pan to feel sorry for you and cool itself so you could reach into the oven to pull it out with your bare hand.

Anyway, hi - good times
What a surprise that the religious nut is a ****up drunk.

It's always the guiltiest people who are drawn to promises of salvation. That's why born-again Christians are almost always total ****ups trying to stay straight.

Does this mean I can walk into the liquor store, purchase my booze with some of my intelligence and no money(for intelligence is wealth, and any form of wealth is accepted currency anywhere on earth), then go home drink some brain cells away and I'll believe in God?

I give you the parable of the black sheep. A shepard has 30 sheep. One is lost. Will not this shepard spend much time finding this one sheep and rejoice when he finally finds it?

You can liken it to losing 100 dollars when you have 10000. You will still search your couch, your car, your gf's wallet lol until you find it, and when you do you will rejoice.

Jesus--
"Go not into the way of the Gentiles" (Matt. 10:5)
"I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel" (Matt. 15:24)
"...for salvation is of the Jews" (John 4:22)

Paul--
"For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, I have set you to be a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth" (Acts 13:47)
"from henceforth, I (Paul--Ed.) will go unto the Gentiles" (Acts 18:6)
"that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it" (Acts 28:28)
"that I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles" (Rom. 15:16)
"that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ" (Eph. 3:8)
(Acts 20:21, 26:17-18, 20, 23, 22:21, Rom. 1:5, 13, 3:29, 11:11-13, 15:9, Gal. 2:2, 7-9, 3:14, Eph. 3:6, 1 Tim. 2:7, 3:16, 2 Tim. 4:17).

The God Who Wasn't There is trash. Stop pretending like it's some sort of scholarly work. It's complete garbage.

except they never saw anything we dont see today under the same conditions all of which is explained by science... im also hoping what you've read is a completely accurate account of the story unlike nearly every other story from that time that was merely an overglorified legend.

Either God doesn't know the outcome or you don't have a choice. You can't have it both ways. If God knows everything then he knows which choice you're going to make before you make the choice. Yet your religion believes that God (the creator of all man) creates people and punishes them for the choices they make (even though he knows they're going to make these choices before he even creates them).

You're a moron.

What I mean is that money on Earth is a form of wealth. Intelligence as well can be regarded as wealth but not in the monetary sense. When you think of Einstein dont you consider him gifted? Even wealthy in terms of attributes? He sure has more then what most of us have in terms of intellect. This is what I mean.

It's kinda like how he hardened the Pharoh's heart, so Pharoh wouldn't let the Jews go, and instead it became a much bigger deal.

He put the Jews through a lot more pain for personal gratification. Why the **** would god do that to people he loved? Obviously he put his own fame above the suffering and lives of his most beloved. This is not the sort of character I want to associate with.

It's called guilt. People who do ****ty things feel guilty. That's why ****up wife beaters, perverts, drunks, and crooks are drawn to religion. It offers a nice placebo that can make them forget about all the evil **** they've done.
