welcome to the forums good luck.

What Drich is trying to say is that we don't believe in things that have no evidence for them. You know like people do with most things except whatever faith they've been conned with since birth.

What Drich is trying to say is that everyone should believe what Drich says because he doesn't believe in Zeus and yet there is an equal amount of evidence for Zeus's existence as is for Drich's God and yet the only reason Drich's God "exists" is because Drich says he does.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Good.  This post is about God's Love.  Love is all about Relationships.  And honesty is an important part of it. 

Can i say the same of your reply?

God includes everyone.  And because He is my Father I am the same.  And thus you are included too.

Yep.  I agree that it is foolish to believe in things that does not exist.  Like superman.  We just enjoy him and then we move on.  But to try and be superman will take you to the "loony bin" or the hospital.   And the hospital will heal you of "superman" or if it doesn't then you will surely end up in the "loony bin".  It is like trying to tell your mind 1 + 1 = 5. Your mind can just not handle it and because you want it to be 5 you get a "delusional" spirit from God.  Then you can enjoy your 5.

But Drich doesn't look "delusional" to me?  Seems he has a valid judgment because their might be evidence.  Or is it just his opinion without any evidence?

Yeah, how do you understand love of a being like God who (according to Bible) destroyed whole civilizations and drowned the entire population of the planet and is now, as you say, not stopping COVID-19 without using confirmation bias?

I mean if you decide that the Big Bad Wolf is a good guy who loved those piglets then you could say that when he blew those houses and ate those piglets, he did it because he loved them and wanted to teach them a lesson to build better and sturdier houses.

You think God did those "bad" things?

Or he's got a "plan" and works in "mysterious ways" that we can't understand.
For a God of Love He will surely knows that knowing each other is essential.  Humans in their sin and their embarrassment about their own lives tend to do this.  Staying "incognito".  So you think God is "embarrassed" and hiding like humans?

Learn from His True Love.  And then yours can be too.  You should not want your child to love drugs.  You should want it to love you instead because you will be more worthy to it than drugs.  

Same with God.  He wants us to Love Him and not the things of the world because He is more beneficial than any thing else.

That is not Love.  Love is a "Feeling".  And illnesses given is not Love of God.  His Love is found elsewhere.  Any idea on that?

That is surely not God's Love?  He said we should Love one another in Grace.  Meaning it has nothing to do with the person and how good or bad he is.

But of course True Love Disciplines too.  So what do we need to discipline our Brother on?

Does he think he is a "smelling insect"?

I totally agree.  He will "superfast" heal you of course.  To be "superfast' away from you because he has to "superfast" heal the next person.  Or He might get a super good idea and just fly superfast around the earth and sent his superfast spead into your immunity system.  And then he can superfast take on the next problem. 

Doesn't leave much room for Real Love Relationships.  He is just "superfast" always going elsewhere.  Seems he is just a "super idea" from a "super imagination" from a "super intellectual" human being?
