Cheerful Giver and Hell
« on: November 05, 2018, 09:10:11 PM »
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+9%3A6-7&version=ESV

6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully[a] will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

If God truthfully loves a cheerful giver then why is one under the threat of hell if one chooses not to give?  How is it possible to be a cheerful giver if one is forced to give?

Actually, I've been off of them for a while.  Let's just say I've realized certain truths.  I was stuck in a cave and chained to a wall and the shadows were my reality.  When I was released from my chains I turned around and stepped out of the cave.  I saw light and the sun for the 1st time and realized the world I knew and understood was a fraction and was a delusion.  I stepped out of the darkness and into the light.

If the government does something similar to this then the government is called tyrannical and the people who do it are tyrants, liberals, socialists, etc yet when God does the same thing on a more universal level it is considered just and acceptable.  Why?

Why is it wrong for government to force others to give yet it is moral and just for God who is the government of us all to force all of us to do so with threats and fear of hell and burning in the lake of fire?

Check yourself, you just put Govt on the same level as God.

In other words, God is beyond reproach and question?  You believe that we're God and God is us or the collective theory.   If this is true then shouldn't we all be on the same level?  If not then why not?

To Christians who believe in the holy scriptures, how do you know God is really good and perfect?  What is your justification for this especially as he even says our ways are not his and we wouldn't understand his ways?  B/c he and the Bible say so?  And, is something wrong because it is wrong or is it wrong b/c God says it is?

You need to educate yourself, I have no interest in entertaining questions even a 6 yro figures out on their own.

Because God is not the government, God is the Creator, and government is not the Creator, but the Creation as all the people are. So, it is wrong for the government to play God.

Only because of God there is "right" and "wrong". Because God is "the one who is", he is the truth. Without God, nothing could be "right" or "wrong". And that is why any kind of Satanism is based on denial of God, and so on denial of "right" and "wrong", on denial and relativization of moral values.

If a 6 year old truthfully figures things out on their own then why do we need teachers and parents at all?  Your comment makes absolutely no sense.

In other words, God is the definer of what is good and evil then which he can change at any time.  Which means, good and evil are arbitrary.  If good and evil are arbitrary to what God says it is then how can one define that God is good?  How is that logically possible?

No one has answered this question.  How can anyone truthfully be a cheerful giver under the threats of hell if one does not choose to give.  It is sort of like a Mafia protection racket in which a person is forced under the threat of the mafia to pay them protection money so they don't break my knuckles or kill me.

How can one truthfully be cheerful about giving under the threat of violence whether it is from a man, the government or God?  So, how can God want a cheerful giver under the threat of punitive punishments if one doesn't follow his arbitrary and capricious commands.   How is God good exactly?  What makes him good?

Another thing about this.  Do they really figure out things on their own or is it that they're whipped and beaten down and all independent thought is removed from them so they obey without any question whatsoever?  Which really means we're all supposed to be individuals like everyone else.  This is what growing up truthfully entails.  It means to obey and conform like robots and do as everyone else with no question whatsoever.

This is just silly. Stop over thinking shit that has no answers. I can't demand God come down and set you straight, no more than I make govt bend to my will, simply because both are collectives, but one gives you life, while the other forces your life to behave a certain way.
So ask yourself, whose the better entity, God or Govt? Most sane people choose God, while liberals choose govt.

That explains a lot.
