    Are you created in Godís image?

    Are you created in God's image?

    "The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."
    Į Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

    Deuteronomy 32:4
    He is the Rock, his work is perfect

    Matthew 5:48
    Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    Scriptures tell us to be like God and emulate all he does as we are to follow in his footsteps.

    If you are a Christian, are you capable of following your God?

    Would you be able and willing to do some of the things the bible shows God doing?

    Are you created in Godís image?

    The short answer is yes. As far as doing notable deeds is concerned (e.g. being used in healing) this requires God's enabling and our faith.
    God exists. Short and to the point.

    Given that different religions portray ''God'' differently and that God has ''spiritual'' presence in our lives rather than a ''physical'' one - not sure.

    You do remember the story of Kind David I hope.

    If like your God then you to could torture a baby for 6 days before killing it, could you?

    Do you really want the God described having something to do with your life?

    What kind of spirituality would come from such a God? Satanic spirituality?

    David sincerely repented of his sins (including rape and murder) and God forgave him.

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Yes but after killing an innocent baby.

    My question stands. Why did you not answer it?

    It a question of faith versus reason.

    Faith is a way for some to quit using their "God given" power of reason and logic, so they will believe doctrines that moral men reject as immoral.

    The God of the OT says...“Come now, and let us reason together,” [Isaiah 1:18]

    How can believers reason with God when they throw away reason?

    Religions, especially Christianity reply.

    “Faith must trample under foot all reason, sense, and understanding.”
    “Reason is a whore, the greatest enemy that faith has.”
    Martin Luther “

    This puts the rest of us in a position where reasoning with theist becomes impossible.

    It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.
    Jonathan Swift

    Literalism is an evil practice that hides the true messages of myths. We cannot show our friend that he is wrong through his faith colored glasses. That faith also plugs the ears.

    Nope. I am certain I would never do any such thing. It would be contrary to God's laws, not to mention the laws of the land.

    How can it be breaking God's law when he did it?

    As above so below.

    Would you as a citizen live in a system where a lawmaker could break his own law with impunity.

    If you could not do as your God does then he would condemn you as you place your own desires above his.

    Don't understand. Not done by God. Humans have free will and can choose to go God's way (do right things) or do wrong things (or morally anyway, nothing). If they sin, and no repentance, then they may pay the consequences - spiritual death and after physical death, hell.

    So now you just deny what you accepted above.

    Thanks Christian.

    Again you run from even looking at the vile morality you follow.

    ?? What did I accept related to my last post? I find it hard to conduct a rational discussion with you so I doubt I will bother further.
