God's Love

God's Love
We have heard that God is Love.  But presently we don't understand much of it.  We really feel we need God to come and solve our crisis in covid19.  If He Loves us then obviously He should do it.  Superman loves us and if he was real then He would long ago came flying in and block covid19 in its tracks.  But God is not doing it. 

Maybe we don't understand His Love?

Maybe He doesn't know?


Where do we begin to look for the Love of a God that says He is Real?

And maybe we have to conclude that He doesn't exist.

I appreciate your honesty in equating God to a comic book character.

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.
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"

Or he's got a "plan" and works in "mysterious ways" that we can't understand.

RE: God's Love
most here are shell shocked and are afraid to over commit. most infact have been reduced to a basic i believe in nothing, everything must be proven. unless they feel like they can get under you skin then it will turn into a feeding frenzy.

welcome to the forums good luck.
1Thess 5:21 Question all things and hold on to what is good.
That doesn't mean question just the questionable, it also means that we should question the foundational. If you have a biblically based question you'd rather not openly discuss i am happy to receive any PM's Semi-discreetly, or Email [email protected]

A/S/K= ask, seek, knock. As outlined in luke 11:5-13

Semi-discreetly= will never share details openly with anyone, but may remind you that I am not speaking out of a vaccum but rather that you may have shared some personal info with me 8+ years ago Dodgy

God is love.
Love is not jealous.
The Lord your God is a jealous God.
C: God is not love or God does not exist.
I'm not anti-Christian. I'm anti-stupid.
