Didnt you already post a joke topic here Purple Lizard?

This board is for serious discussion, if you wish to troll the Ps4 or Xboxone boards would probably be more expedient.


Please don't accuse others of trolling for asking a question. That is trolling.

Why can only true believers answer? If anyone was to know it would be the atheists, the non-believers, surely?


Okay, then. Why do people disobey God's command to believe in him?

If his answer is anything like mine, it's "I was never given that command."

That's not God commanding me, that's you.

Plus, doesn't "command" kinda go against that free will stuff I keep hearing Christians say in their defense of certain things? I thought we were supposed to have faith of our own volition?

Faith without works is dead. Works without faith is empty. Both are vital.

We show we love god by keeping his commandments, thats what jesus told us. It is our free will to choose what is right over what is wrong.

Unless we get it TOO wrong, because then God kills 99.9% of every living population of the planet with a flood.

Or maybe God will coerce me into doing something that he can then punish me for, like when he hardened the Pharaoh's heart.

Or maybe I should be killed for doing something blameless like working on the Sabbath.

Man my free will is so free right now.

Its really simple:

1.)follow god and you wont die in a flood. Or if you do you will go to heaven

2.)God never tempts or coerces anyone with sin. I read this last night.

3.) Jesus showed its ok to work on the sabbath as long as it is for good (like feeding people, etc.). He proved all the pharisees wrong in their face.

4.)Your free will is always free. Thats the beauty of being human.

I freely choose to love jesus and pursue his commands and righteousness till the day i die :)
