Initially not a necessity but my choice out of interest. After that it became a necessity out of respect for the creator and what he has done and is still prepared to do for my benefit and others who choose to worship Him. Rev 4:11
Thanks, you choose to, many others choose to believe also, in different and other gods than you choose to. All of you that believe in a god, also choose to NOT believe in each other's god, so all of you is also NON-believers in each others gods, and some of us, like myself, just CHOOSE to not-believe in only one less god than you choose to believe in. That said, I do respect your's and any other's choices in what you believe in or not.
Initially probably nothing will happen to me. Later, when God corrects all the problems that now exist on earth and removes corruption and the corrupt and those who want to do their own thing.. I will be disposable as no longer measuring up to God's requirements. Rev 11:18
Do you think all gods from all religions are like this, to punish/dispose the one that choose not to believe and do their own thing?
Because that's what he is! Why is it necessary for you to be a human?
Actually, I had no choice here, to be human. If a god, any god, is a god because it is a god, who made it a god?
Where have you been all your life? Have you never heard of, seen, owned, or read the Bible? The most widely distributed book ever, in all major languages and many minor languages doesn't equate to 'hidden' surely! Do you require every world leader to appear before you before you acknowledge their existence? Heb 11:1
So, what you say here, is a god exists because something you call the bible say so? Everyone must believe this, because one of the gods (which one?)described in the bible, says that what one reads in the bible is true? Each and every other religion also have their own version of a handbook, so lets call them all bibles for argument sake. So, the argument here is that one must believe in ones god because "the bible" says so, and "the bible" is the true word of that god because "the bible" says so?
You are assuming that God is not using me to defend Him? I'm not claiming that, but it is common practice in most fields of life to have others represent the 'top brass'. That is what God has chosen to do down through the ages.
This thread concerns talking about God.. so what is your point?
My point is, if a god exists, any god, and he is the creator of all, why does he need followers/representers, because a god, any god, is it not something that is supposed to be allmighty, and why would such a god then allow confusion in humans and not come out of hiding and phisically show itself to all mankind, like in all other fields of life, where you have seen the "the top brass" and you can even speak to them face to face, therefore you know they exist. Unless, this god exists, but is not allmighty, not godlike at all, and needs representation to keep in touch with all aspects of its "creation"? My conclusion is that a god, any god, may only exist in the mind of a person, and that a god did not create man, but man created a god (in their mind)
