Today I got this comment.
always good to see a Christian repeating lies. I am so glad you ignore your god when its supposed words are inconvenient.
Alas, attempts to gin up fear and continue ignorance are all that christianity has left.
Any reader who wants to know what sort of lies clubschadenfreude is talking about should read her comment here => https://silenceofmind.wordpress.com/2022/10/15/why-atheism-is-so-deadly/comment-page-1/#comment-18563.
When does clubschadenfreude think I am ignoring my God? There are parts of the Bible she does not understand, and I don’t understand well. These parts usually have to do with those parts of the Old Testament where God orders the Israelites to kill the Canaanites. Since He commands the complete destruction of the Canaanites, what God commands seems cruel. Nevertheless, the Canaanites were cruelly sacrificing their own babies to red hot idols. So, for some reason I don’t find it that difficult to get over my discomfort with God’s command to kill the Canaanites.
Why did God want the Canaanites destroyed? Why did God almost all of humanity in Noah’s Flood? Why did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah? Why do we destroy each other in wars and tyrannical purges? The Bible makes it clear that sin leads to death, but do any of us know how much sinfulness God will tolerate? Do we even comprehend our own capacity for evildoing? No. God is God. He knows
God is our Creator. What is man when compared to God?
Consider the irony. Whose standards does an Atheist use to judge God’s morality? Atheists complain about Biblical morality, yet they cannot point to any basis for their own moral standards. The most ironic example of this is the argument that God does not exist, at least a good God, because a good God would not tolerate evil.
What is the problem with that argument? If a good God does not exist, then how is it that we know the difference between good and evil?
Consider the story of God ordering Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac (see Genesis 22). Naturally, Abraham would have been horrified by the command, but he went ahead and obeyed.
Was it evil of God to make such a demand of Abraham? No. Why not?’
Consider the book of Job. God allowed Satan to murder Job’s family and to cause Job terrible suffering. Yet Job refused to curse God. That book ends with Job praising God, but God had still not answered Job’s questions.
Was it evil of God to allow Satan to torment Job? Job did not think so. Why not?
God is God. We are His creations. God created everything. He is sovereign. He is good. He is holy. He is omniscient. We are not any of those things. We are not on the same level as God. It is foolish to put ourselves on the same level as God, but that is what Atheists do. They foolishly put themselves on the same level as God. How? Atheists say that God does not exist because God does not treat them as their equals and justify Himself to them.
God created us for His glory. What will He eventually make of those of us who love Him? God only knows. Meanwhile, we trust Him because He loves us. We love Him because he first loved us.
I perused the comments of the atheists and noticed most of the Atheist’s Bible references were taken from the Old Testament instead of the New Testament which is what Christianity beliefs replaced.
In other words, your choice of verse that ended with the statement “He has no understanding,” is spot on to describe atheists is spot on, in my opinion.
