So I'm NOT ignorant thenNot true again, there is death in the UB, but you talk out ignorance. Those who don’t survive are destroyed. No hell torture place.
Nope. It doesn't say that. You made up 'changed his mind' to fit your preferred narrative. Why did you?It’s says God caused Pharaoh to harden his heart, change his mind. It says God killed a bunch of children.
Next: Do YOU have a 'right' to life? Yes or no. If your thinking is wrong, your conclusions will be (are) as well. It means, as I said, that 1) you don't really think critically and 2) that your assumptions craft your theology. If wrong, so are your conclusions. You'll have to be open to that or our conversations will always just be you caught in fleshly concerns.
No. It doesn't say that, Caino. While you are thinking beyond the text, you yet need help with critical thinking skills. You are missing it.A critical thinker can conclude that Pharaoh simply changed his mind. Had nothing to do with God getting into his brain.
No. You don't have critical thinking and 'common sense' in the same breath. One isn't the other. In fact, it is often what the UB means by "Only natural." You could place 'common sense' right over the top of 'only natural.' "Common" is flesh. It is by definition, what we all have in "common." Your UB was mostly interested in what was 'only natural, common sense.' It wasn't interested in those few who have God's Spirit.A critical thinker with any common sense knows that God didn’t kill a bunch of kids just for show.
I realize your thinking, thus assessment is this shallow, Caino. I really am a better reader and better at critical thinking than you. Fact. It doesn't matter if you don't want to believe that but it is true. You say 'rational' but you mean 'common' and 'only natural.' Rational people work through 1) that God is love 2) that some things don't 'look' loving, and 3) evaluate the two. You? You 'assumed' (not rational but for a veneer of time without investment). It was 'only natural' for you to use your 'common sense' because that is what all men come equipped with, but wives tales come from those assumptions. The UB is full of uncritical sentiment (platitudes). As I said, I literally don't have to read your book (though I did, for your and Freelight's sakes alone, I have no other desire at all for it). It doesn't require anything from me, just tries to 'teach me something' and at the end of the day, I'm left exactly where I was before I ever started reading it: No change whatsoever. THAT is critical thinking. I'm right about this one. I've a good chunk of it. It is really difficult to read junk I don't like seeing its façade, but I did it for you. Don't forget that. You don't see love in me, the same way you don't with God, but that is because your concept is idealistic and demanding from your own head. Its wrong. That is the best I can tell you at this moment. -LonYou confuse critical thinking for makeing bad excuses that may satisfy you in group think but not rational people.
