Re: If God wants us to love him... why does he use fear and intimidation tactics???
Why does God kill and eternally torture those who don't love him????

Why does he try to scare all of us into loving him?????
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9788321


God doesnt torture us (satan does). God is only "LOVE" period and when we don't accept his love then we are basically stating we are not "his children".God will discipline us because he loves us. Think back to your father when he would discipline you when you were wrong. Well God loves us WAAAAAAAAAAAY more than your own flesh and blood father loved you. GOD WILL DISCIPLINE HIS CHILDREN and that "fear" that Paul is talking about is sort of like the fear we had at our own fathers when we knew we were wrong and correction was upon us. WE SHOULD BE HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY WHEN WE ARE DISCIPLINED BECAUSE WE KNOW WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.......

God Disciplines His Children (HEBREWS 12)
4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. 5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,

“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
6 because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”[a]

7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

12 Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. 13 “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.

Warning and Encouragement
14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. 16 See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. 17 Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. Even though he sought the blessing with tears, he could not change what he had done.

Hope it helps..... God loves us so much that he gave us his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life..... John 3:16

Job 9:24
King James Version (KJV)
24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

Satan is in charge now, using the gentiles to do his work on this Earth. The Judges (Children of Israel) who are supposed to be executing Gods law are on the bottom of the social ladder and they have no clue about their identity and their Job in this Earth. That's why the world is not a "nice place."

Stop looking for a way to blame your creator and instead pray to him for answers.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9788321


Because he's BOUND to his word? Satan was HURLED out of the Heavens, from there he was able to tempt man and to have men serve him. The gentile nations today are helping Satan fulfill his plan to "be like the most high" and that includes watching the whole Earth from space and getting everyone chipped.

For all you know OP, me talking to you may very well be your chance to find life again and be spiritually prepared for the destruction coming to this Earth. You don't sound like someone who WANTS answers, you sound like someone who thinks they know it all and instead trying to mask it as seeking truth.

Put down your pride and learn.



I come in peace, brother. Don't throw your life away because Satan has setup a system for you to follow that path. Your soul is eternal, remember that, you WILL see a judge my friend.

God's Christmans Gift To Us - Jesus Shares His Inheritance!

"For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving different lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

But after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared,

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior;

That being justified by his grace, we should be made HEIRS according to the hope of eternal life." Titus 3:3-7

Why do you follow the tenants of the Christian bible? There are billions of other people that follow much more peaceful religions. The Buddhists for example. You are pigeon holing yourself by not learning the worlds religions.

There are religions that have no hell. No eternal punishment for having a bad thought. You are internalizing way too much on Christianity.

No one wanted "God" around in the first place.


If I was "God" I wouldn't want to be around while we grow into our proud selves either.
We naturally do not, and did not want that type of guidance while growing into ourselves.

We "know everything" you know?

No one wants anyone telling them how to raise their children.
No one wants anyone knowing more than them, even if it were the all-knowing Creator.




We really are assholes, naturally, but there is a way to change that. Just not until AFTER we grew into ourselves.

The most High God loves you more than you can imagine my friend. But the thing is, you don't know how to love him so that way he can love you back.

Here's a secret: Keep the commandments (including the sabbath) and pray.

1Jn 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1Jn 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

1Jn 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1Jn 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.


The Most High God AHAYAH doesn't "love" the way the christian church teaches love. The ONLY way to show the most High God you love him is by keeping his commandments. He'll take care of you from there.

You cant love others unless you learn to love God. God wants all of us to love each other as God loves all of us, equally. Then and only then will you have true justice and honor because love is the base ingredient of unity and all that is just. The interpretation of God and Love is just that, you have to experience Love to truly know love.

My brother, America was NOT founded on the foundation of the God of the Bible. America or otherwise known as the Daughter of the Chaldees/Virgin daughter of Babylon is an extension of Rome. A satanic country controlled by the Synagogue of Satan.

Your problem is you lack understanding, so you're blaming your creator. Get a clue on how the world works and who's controlling the Earth and everything will make sense.

If you think the God of the bible has anything to do with Americas development, you are sadly mistaken. The God of the bible is about to judge America my friend.

THE WORLD IS A FANTASTIC PLACE, THANKS GOD.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9788321


My brother, America was NOT founded on the foundation of the God of the Bible. America or otherwise known as the Daughter of the Chaldees/Virgin daughter of Babylon is an extension of Rome. A satanic country controlled by the Synagogue of Satan.

Your problem is you lack understanding, so you're blaming your creator. Get a clue on how the world works and who's controlling the Earth and everything will make sense.

If you think the God of the bible has anything to do with Americas development, you are sadly mistaken. The God of the bible is about to judge America my friend.

Do not fall for this liar...that is doing god a service by whacking off to the target kill shot it wants.

Instead watch it burn in its own judgment.

It is a man hater full of coveting contempt and whacking off to the thought of vengeance...

It thingies will rot off with its own soul as well.

It is ushering in it own death by ushering in others and rejoicing in the fantasy of it.

It is a liar deceiving foul mouthed frog eaten up with millennial fever.

Back to you you shall have can't get out of this trap that had so easily best you...

Why do you think you have it....hast you not realized it was given unto you?

You can not shake it off if you wanted to it would only pop right back up out of your soul where it has been seed at....to take you to hell.

Re: If God wants us to love him... why does he use fear and intimidation tactics???
You cant love others unless you learn to love God. God wants all of us to love each other as God loves all of us, equally. Then and only then will you have true justice and honor because love is the base ingredient of unity and all that is just. The interpretation of God and Love is just that, you have to experience Love to truly know love.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21500116


I think you have a point, but I would like to add. How can anyone go straight to loving God while ignoring the human condition. My feeling is that we need to learn how to love one another before we can understand what God is.
 Quoting: PokerFace


Your right! The condition keeps us from loving others including ourselves. So if we sit at the lotus feet of God to learn from Him on this matter we slowly can help and improve our conditions and I mean that in many tangible ways.

THANK YOU! You understand. A voice of reason and understanding. Is it not crazy to jump to the highest level without scant understanding of the lowest? I love you now.

The Buddhist are pagan idolaters. Stop trying to turn him into a satanist.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29130092


Ask a Buddhist what he/she thinks about Christianity. They think they are ruthless.
 Quoting: PokerFace


So called "Christians" today don't know anything about the Bible. They know the doctrine of pagan christianity created under Constantine and the Nicene Creed. You can't fault them though because many people just want to hear something that'll make them feel good and don't really care for TRUTH.

99% of Christians today are post-constantine Christians, pagan idolaters.

With that being said, Buddhism isn't ANY better.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29130092


Well, I can understand the position of an atheist. I simply pointed out that there is more philosophy out there than Christianity. It's terribly presumptuous to conclude that all Americans are Christian. What's so bad at looking at other ways of understanding humanity?
 Quoting: PokerFace


There's a spirit or "god" behind all of these practices in the Earth.

Psa 96:4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.
Psa 96:5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

Stay away from Buddhism. Buddha nor his statues won't be able to save the Chinese when their judgment comes after Americas.
