Supaskeptic1; very good points you made.
Sean777; I noticed you attacked supaskepti1 personally rather than his argument
Bird I like how you phased the following:
“the trick is to believe the bible is true and that God exists and is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”
Judging from the points Supaskeptic1 brought up, believing the things you mentioned will take one heck of a “trick” I think I would have more success pulling a rabbit out of a hat. Next you said:
“choose to believe enough in the goodness of God to interpret the world as the bible says and not interpret the bible as the circumstances are.”
So you choose to bury your head in the sand and interpret the world, not according to reality, but according to the way the bible says, and to stay away from factual circumstances when interpreting the bible? No thank you! I know ignorance is bliss, but I will stick with reality
