    I can only argue with the bible, not every website that thinks it has an opinion

    Let's say "some" believe it. There are three possibilities. It never happened, God did it, or the people did it and blamed God.

    Any other possibilities?

    Old Testament Mass Killings

    It doesn't matter. The fact is people believe this is their God. It's right there in the Bible! And the Bible says it's true. It's right there in the Bible! Because it's in the Bible. And the Bibl...

    How? Do you believe God should let evil continue for eternity rather than deal with or eliminate it?

    No, lets lets about the population of the world (including innocent and unborn children) that the bible claims your god took the life of.

    Lets talk about the innocent firstborn children that the bible says your god killed in egypt.

    If you believe your god has authority to remove life then that is your cross to bare, wear it well.

    And the word of a christian apologetics website is hardly compelling evidence that a bronze age myth has authority to kill

    As a human, I love the human race, but I also know that in all honestly we fall short. Do you watch the news? Do you see your own self-centeredness? I do (speaking of my own). I am not going to delude myself into thinking humans can save themselves. I am thankful for a Savior who offers to make all things new.

    The news is sensationalist and focuses on a few (perhaps a few 10s) of people, there are 5.5 billion people in the world.

    My self centeredness? Considering you know nothing about me i consider that an insult

    Me, yes humans have to do it, how many times has praying saved a life?

    Re-read the post. ... I said - (speaking of my own) in reference to my self-centeredness, not yours.

    I never said there was evidence, I did say the bible says so and many people believe and excuse the bible because it is the bible and they believe the bible cannot be wrong because its the bible.

    You said and I quote 'Do you see your own self-centeredness?'

    I thought you were better than that

    By killing his creations, and justifying it by "I made it, so I can destroy it"? o_O And so far he's done a marvelous job of eliminating evil.

    How do you explain all the millions of people who've lived good, moral lives throughout human history without any knowledge of your God and savior? What are they to be saved from? Are they saved? Or are they destined for hell?
