Except you are completely unable to be objective. You already know the answers and know them better than do believers - or so you think.I can examine the claims just as well as anybody...silly atheist - I don't criticize liberalism. I believe in it. I criticize leftism - and I have full experience of it. Politics is not something that requires special experience in order to understand. There are however, things in this life that DO require special experience in order to understand. FAITH is one such that does require special experience to be able to understand.you can certainly criticize liberalism without being a liberal...Problems as YOU perceive them not as they actually exist.
just like one can criticize and point out problems of a belief system without adhering to it.
I'm mistaken about my own faith huh? Good thing I have you as a good atheist to educate me! DUMBASSYou'd be sadly mistaken blah blah blah blah blah . . . .

Actually He sets the rules and the holds himself to those rules. He doesn't break them just because he's God. That is called consistancy. Sin is sin in God's eyes. There are no levels of sin, no more sinful behavior or less sinful behavior, there is only sin and no sin. That is why there is a need for forgiveness and redemption. Even Hilter could have been forgiven had he sincerely seeked God for forgiveness. Do yo think that humanity would have forgiven Hitler had he asked for forgiveness? You call God a tryannt and worse but you fail to see people bring their condamnation upon themselves and the condemnation can be thwarted by the simple act of seeking forgiveness. No one is so evil that they are beyond forgiveness.
Anyone who is seriously worried about Hell can simply make the choice not to go there. God never forces anyone. You make the choice of your final destination. You have no one but yourself to blame if you choose to reject the free gift He offers.
