    Actually all humans really strive for is perfection. Rather you admit it or not, so it makes sense we would creat a perfect god. I'm honestly an atheist. And no not cause I want to sin or work for Saten how could I if I don't believe in him. I really don't want to be judged on my believes.

    Humans have been making up bullshit gods since our inception. The god of the bible is no different

    you'd create a god that's more like you; exactly. we are all different, so just because god isn't like you, doesn't mean he isn't like someone else.

    besides that, i personally would not want to worship a god who had a laid back attitude toward sinners. my humanness demands justice, and if i were to create a god, he would indeed exact judgment upon us all, but he would also take some responsibility for the terrible path he allowed us to embark upon.

    i think your argument fails terribly.

    How is punishing someone with eternal separation moral?

    My sentence was a complete thought – "People keep trying to humanize God & bring Him to our level, that is a fools game." My point was, go to God's level & strive towards being Holy as is the constant theme throughout the Bible.

    Oversimplifying is exactly what I am doing & believe that is scriptural as well because the Bible was written to be understood by the lay person AND, independently, is eternally layered.

    Like this video, people over intellectualize Him & that creates confusion.

    'bring Him to our level' – This is the only way that we can know Him, which is what He wants. He is a person, not a force. The Bible itself is God bringing Himself to our level, using language etc. through which we can understand. Otherwise we could never know anything about Him (see Isaiah 55:8-9).

    You are oversimplifying things. God wants us to know Him as best as creatures can, but it will take us all eternity to do so. See John 17:3. So there is nothing wrong with people thinking like Greg.

    @Hoba- Actually lead has been turned into gold. Unfortunately the process costs more than the worth of the gold produced.

    Genetic fallacy? Are you retarded?

    The video claims that man could not have invented a god with the character traits that the Bible god has. I simply pointed out the fact that man has invented many such gods.

    Try again, dipshit.

    How incredibly surprising!

    If only you could see how utterly stupid and nonsensical each and every claim you just made is.

    Only Christians can't understand why others laugh at their foolish beliefs.

    Did man create God in man's image? or Did God create man in God's image? or … or …
    some think they know,
    some think they don't know,
    some believe,
    some don't believe,
    some are so sure that they know the 100% Truth about God,
    that even God can't show them that there is a lie in the middle of their 100 % sure Truth belief system (i was one of them) 🙂 Still not sure how the impossible happened (maybe God can do the impossible 🙂 Look again can you see the LIE in your i beLIEve in … 😀

    I hate this type Christian rhetoric because it lacks any real & relative substance. Here is the point – God is God & he laid it all out for us, in perfect & complete form in the Bible. Question it all you want, bitch about it, reject it or accept it as it is. That is your choice.

    People keep trying to humanize God & bring Him to our level, that is a fools game. Like the force of gravity …. you can talk about it all you want but drop an egg off of a 10' ladder, it will break.

    God simply is.

    Does it take magic for your stories to work? You believe a frog became a prince and nothing became everything. Sounds like a bedtime story.

    For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18

    Not that you'll care.

    It baffles me how incredibly self-deluded you are. There is nothing about the god of the bible that couldn't have been easily made up by ancient men. Every single character trait of Yahweh is shared by hundreds, if not thousands, of other imaginary gods. And every single one of those character traits is simply an extension of a trait found in humans. That's how cultists like yourself are able to relate.

    By making a video like this, you advertise yourself as an utter fool, blind to the truth.

    A god created in our image would look like the Greek or Roman gods or the eastern impersonal gods. Mohammed's Allah is partially based on the Jewish and Christian concepts of god, so it is not created only on man's imagination. The eastern gods are impersonal. Christianity and Judaism are truly unique.
