    Yes. The site has been locking me out 15 minutes at a time all week long.

    YES

    However: In my honest opinion; it's out of character for a potentate known for compassion, kindness, mercy, forgiveness, and sensitivity to terminate the people He created with extreme prejudice via a mode of death akin to a foundry worker falling into a kettle of molten iron and then leaving them there to simmer in sulfur fumes; despairing, thirsty, and in agony for all eternity. It's like there's two totally different Gods in the Bible: one is as sweet and kind as Sleeping Beauty and the other is as mean and heartless as a boot full of barbed wire.

    Christians leery about appearing blasphemous stretch their imaginations making excuses for the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personality exemplified by the Bible's God. But were they to reveal their innermost secret thoughts, I think you'd find that many of them agree with me that the Bible's God appears to the logical mind as somewhat bi-polar, unreasonable, cruel, and sadistic.

    So, if that's how I feel, then why am I a Christian? Well; my mind tells me that it's all just a clever fantasy. But I cannot shake the conviction that what I read in the Bible about the hereafter is true; though I cannot prove, nor do I believe it possible to prove, that the Bible's supernatural components are reality.

    Faith is believin' what you know ain't so.

    It totally smacks of man made horror to keep the population under obeyance doesn't it? Many of those who taught such also preached of a literal and fiery "hell" or "lake" and even non baptised children would be cast into such. Nice, eh?

    Weberhome, I was trying to reply to you but my computer has gone wonky. There is something off with this website. I mean, I find it interesting and kinda fun....but it has taken me three hours to log on just now.

    I finally have an evening after work when I can respond to all the posts I can speak intelligently to...and I’m locked out.

    If I didn’t know better - and I don’t - I’d say some people around here pushing buttons may not wish me to be posting. I could be wrong, but I’ve never had this problem before, and I’ve been doing this long time. I’m one of the OG’s on discussion forums like this.

    Absolutely. Religion is powerful.

    Right. Well, there's a few things from the Bible that I like, and I've mentioned them several times already here. That God is love and love never fails strikes me as a worthy couple of notions. If God is good, then there is no such place as the hell that many Christian people believe in....like being on fire forever...because that would be the opposite of good or love, in the extreme.

    As far as a penal colony and a quarantine, I don't see why we should not consider ourselves to be in that right now. FWIW.
