    Why should God love humanity when humanity is the very definition of irony ?

    People preach God and teachings yet the world still doesn't care about Gods work .

    If a God wanted he/she/it could wipe humanity out with a thought, but out of compassion for humans stupidity the Gods, Buddhas and so on has given humanity a last chance to understand truth. But humanity fails because of the clinging to ego/self

    IMO , humanity has/uses religion as an excuse for selfish riches .
    Their claims of a true belief in God being a total lie .
    There isn't a single rich person or rich group on Earth that really believe in God. God is an excuse and as always been the excuse to keep the masses slaves to the rich .

    The god featured in the Bible is evil if it exists and what is attributed to it is true. If it created humanity maybe it did so to get off on its suffering.

    If you speak of the Christian God it is already said that it is more difficult for a rich man to go to heaven then it is for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. So yes you are correct rich people will struggle to get to heaven (because of clinging to their money, fame, and family reputation) when they can go of the attachments to their ego it becomes easier.

    Well unfortunately all holy books were written by mankind and the truth opens up new beginnings and understanding.
    Let's direct our attention towards the Vatican , the Romans did murder Jesus because he was in fact a political activist , one with liberal views . Jesus gained many followers and the Romans didn't like this at all as he undermined their let's say sexual appetites and grandeur.
    Now things haven't changed that much , where is the Vatican and Italia in helping with the immigrates crisis ?
    I tell you behind closed doors and making sure the rest of Europe take on these needy people why they hide behind politics.
    What makes Italia so special in 2019?
    Nothing but the Vatican's wealth and their own selfish acts of not caring for the rest of the rest of the world.
    How about Islam ? The Arabs of Dubai living it up while the rest if the Muslim communities live in rags and its about surviving rather than living. All religions are the same , Israel doesn't want poor neighbours on their door step so they'd rather shoot them etc before helping them.
    All religion lies and on Jesus's behalf I'm here to voice Gods truth and I know

    Thou cannot speak truths like me

    God does not suffer, it is your hate toward God that makes you your self suffer, you create the suffering for you.

    Why do you ask "what if God lost the love for humanity" when you clearly do not believe there is a God? Only to create a place to spread hate toward God, or are you truly interested in knowing?

    Belief in a god which in all probability doesn't exist can cause people to suffer. One should hate the evil Biblical god, loving it would be like loving Hitler.

    Bull****. You clearly do not know what God does for millions of people. And you are very good in taking what is written in the bible and use it as you shield to spread your hate.
    What negative is written in the bible is to those who chose to NOT follow it but fails to see the truth of the written word.
    This counts for every religion, if you can not see the truth in it and follow it, you will suffer. If you follow your ego and only do what YOU want, then yes you will suffer.

    It is not the belief in God that causes suffering , it is the rich persons use God that causes suffering.
    Practice what they preach seems to ring bells when considering mercy and charity.
    Why they wear the emperors dress , the poor wear rags .
    Their belief of God is a belief of control where true believers still share loaves and fishes.
    For the truth is true believers don't ever want to see anybody suffering no matter who they are or what country they come from .

    What is God ? The process of thought involving creation. Diverse and ambiguous, one could see Gods as their own parents but beyond parents is a beginning where humanity was first evolved by whatever process.
    We won't survive unless the whole world stops acting childish .

    It would do lots of good if people had the morals and integrity to go with it .
    How we define God is the importance , you believe we evolved somehow don't you?

    I believe the theory of evolution makes a lot more sense than the crazy creation story in the Bible.

    First of all when following a religious teaching the correct way, one get wisdom, morality, compassion for other people. The understanding of why we suffer become clear. It is out one adult we suffer when we cling to past experience.

    What about before evolution?
    Do you believe some process created the Universe such as the Big bang ?
    What before that ?
    Does is hurt to call this process God ?
    See we can believe in God without the mythology.
