If Its the Word Of "God" Why Do People Do the Talking?

Really though. If God truly did exist, and truly wanted all of us to be aware of his presence it would be pretty easy. I mean he is omnipotent right? Yet, the biggest crime one can commit in reference to the Bible is denying the existence of the Holy Spirit. Its the one surefire ticket straight to Hell. All God would have to do is show up again like in the good old days, perform a few miracles and I would be satisfied. But unless that happens I'll remain an atheist. Instead "His Word" is passed on by preachers and politicians with their own agendas.

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. – Susan B. Anthony

I couldn't have said it better myself. Of course proof of existence would ruin the whole point of faith though....

Hmmm. Those images of Jesus-God on burnt toast, French Toast, overcooked Tortillas, stained concrete, and the like could just as well be of some late 60's Hippy as well, couldn't they? Or are they too "Holy" to be something that came about quite so naturally?

Well it works this way: "God" (all three of em') does talk to we humans! By using other humans possessed by the interstellar cloud of invisible gas-God known as the Holy Spirit. Just yaps away at us, he does! But you raise a good point. How come Jesus-God and Father-God don't speak to us at all?

I suppose we should accept Jesus-God appearing to us as images of himself on burnt toast, French-toast, knots in trees, overcooked tortillas, or as a face in some rolling clouds as supernatural proof of His existence. But, shoot, you would prefer a Saul on the road to Damascus-type experience, wouldn't you?

And speaking of that: Notice how almost every one of the "believers" in the New Testament came to "belief" because they saw supernatural miracles being performed right before their very eyes; whereas we moderns have to accept what some ancient writers said happened instead of us witnessing such things with our very eyes!

And what about "Doubting Thomas"? He supposedly witnessed miracles, including the raising of Lazarus from the dead, but was full of doubt that Jesus-God (while in the guise of His "Father") raised his own self from the dead. (And good thing Jesus appeared to him in person too or poor Doubting Thomas would be well on his way to Hell for his non-belief.)

As for Father-God, or "Pops", as he lets me call him (being that he's so imaginary): Well he's trying his supernatural best to pretend he doesn't exist. (And doing a mighty fine job of it, I might add!) so that he can send people to Hell for all eternity for not believing he exists. What a card, that imaginary, make-believe, God "Pops" is, isn't he? "Junior" can be one too, at times.

Bottom line: It's "God's" fault if we don't believe in all three of Him. That's because he/they didn't have what it takes to prove to us the trio exists. Can't blame us for their shortcomings, now can they? There's enough time though, to have each of us enjoy a "Road to Damascus" experience and secure a place in Heaven before we kick the bucket, I suppose. That is, if a certain trio of Gods whose names I'll leave unmentioned for now finally get off their supernatural, lazy-ass hinnies and start performing some miracles all of us atheists can believe in, eh?

Yes, because who would stone disobedient children? But those gays...... It doesn't make sense. But why do you expect from thousands of years of playing telephone.

and if it doesn't say what i want it to say then you're just taking it out of context or interpreting it wrong.
