|God The Father Is Impossible! The Bible Is A Scam by bigjackass: 4:00pm On Dec 13, 2020|
Imagine you have a daughter who doesn't listen when you tell her not to wear skimpy clothing. Not to keep bad friends. Not to go clubbing. Not to stay out late. One day you walk into a situation where this your daughter is about to get raped by a man or some men. Then you stay back and observe the situation while your daughter is getting raped. You don't do anything. After raping your daughter they snap her nudes and walk away. Then after they leave, you now to over to your weeping daughter and console her, telling her that you saw all what happened and you did nothing because you wanted her to learn the lesson of not wearing skimpy clothing, etc.
Is there any parent capable of such an act?
Now let's assume that such a parent exists on this earth. If you were the child in question, how will you feel about this your father who watched you get molested and did nothing? Will you embrace this father afterwards and go back to his house and live happily ever after?
Well that is the exactly the behavior of the Christian God to his children for you. Christians will say He let it happen for a reason. Do you watch your child get hit by a vehicle for a reason?
That poor child Uwa who was brutally raped and murdered in the church in Benin must have prayed her heart out for God to save her but we all know how it ended
See how he contradicts himself.
9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
In conclusion, the Bible is a scam.

bigjackass:or probably Uwa's faith was not small enough as a mustard seed to be saved Mathew 17:20
|Re: God The Father Is Impossible! The Bible Is A Scam by budaatum: 4:26pm On Dec 13, 2020|
bigjackass:Any Bible reader who says such nonsense should have their head checked because the parent you yourself describe did not "stay back and observe the situation while your daughter is getting raped". Wisely, and before the fact too, the parent you describe gave the daughter the vaccination to being raped but the daughter refused to take it.
What you are claiming is like if your parent tells you your finger will burn if you put it in the fire but you put it in the fire anyway then your parent is a scam. My own parent would have held my hand longer in the fire that I myself put it in and use three headed koboko on my stupid head afterwards to reinforce the point.
All I can say is may you not have stupid children who refuse to listen to your teachings!

bigjackass:A very big scam bro!
I have read the thing in-and-out but it's simply filled with fiery tales and unsubstantiated stories, similar to stories of nowadays such as:
----my church member travelled from France to Germany without a visa or airplane!
---- I travelled on empty car fuel tank for kilometers.

budaatum:from what we heard, Uwa was a pious Christian lady and he must have prayed a lot for God to save her from those rapists!
Why did God refused to help?
Why did God not come down in a thunderous lightning (as we used to see in Nigerian movies) to strike dead (or at least, immobilized them) those bastard rapists?

It seems to me like the sum of your argument is that if God does not do things exactly as you demand that He should, then the Bible is a scam. Have I read you right?
If that is your argument, I'm sure that you can see how it is flawed. Obviously, God could not possibly live by your standards, since He is the Maker of all Laws and the origin of all things and you are not.
As for the Scripture you posted, it seems obvious to me that God is saying that He is far better than humans at giving good gifts to those who ask Him (that is, those who are willing to receive those gifts from Him). But I don't see anything in the passage defining "good gifts" in the way that it seems to me that you do. In fact, the passage does not even explain what God defines as good gifts. It only uses the phrase.
Other parts of the Bible teach two other things that are relevant to this discussion:
1. God does not necessarily define things as we do.
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)
13 Who can fathom the Spirit of the LORD, or instruct the LORD as his counselor? 14 Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge, or showed him the path of understanding?
Isaiah 40:13-14 (NIV)
2. God does work good for all those who love Him (that is, those who are willing to ask Him for the good that He has to give to all human beings and to receive it too from Him). But this good is defined by Him. The good that He has in store is eternal, not merely temporary or temporal, that is, it is not limited to our short stay here on earth. Just as the momentary punishment you mete out to your child when they do foolish and dangerous things to deter them from similar behavior in the future and just as the painful medical treatments and procedures that you put your children whom you love through so that you can protect their bodily health, God does put human beings through pain and difficulty to secure their eternal wellbeing.
28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Romans 8:28 (NASB)
"I am the LORD, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; 6 That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun That there is no one besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other, 7 The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these.
Isaiah 45:5 (NASB)
So I don't think the Bible is scamming anyone. It does not teach that God promises that everything in life will be sweet and painless. In fact, He promises the opposite and only assures those who believe in Him that in the midst of all the pain and trouble, He will provide supernatural comfort until He takes us to be with Him where there will be no more pain or difficulty or until He resurrects us so that we will no longer be susceptible to pain or difficulty. If we believe something other than this, that deception is not on the Bible but on us.

sinkhole:You sound like a person who does not study for an exam then blames God for your failure.
From what I understand, the Christian God does not wait for calamity to befall one before it acts. Like any wise being it follows the principle of "prior preparation prevents piss poor performance".
Perhaps see God as a football coach who trains its team long before the game instead of doing nothing to prepare then wailing they can't score.

budaatum:So, Uwa deserved to die, as she did not prepare well for God to defend her?
|Re: God The Father Is Impossible! The Bible Is A Scam by budaatum: 4:51pm On Dec 13, 2020|
sinkhole:Who is this Uwa you keep mentioning? If she is the daughter in the op, then deserve is not exactly the word to use.
Perhaps see it as a consequence of her actions. Only stupid people put their hand in the fire and expect it not to be burnt, or do not study but expect to pass exams. It's like not working for your food but expecting you will not one day starve. When you write here asking for food we will ignore you!

budaatum:So, you don't know anything about Uwa
According to the accused, the landlady needed some parts of the young lady for rituals to expand the economic activity she was engaged in. The suspects again revealed that, the landlady claimed, Uwa was a perfect person for the sacrifice, considering how chaste and pure she was.

sinkhole:If she is the girl in the op you should not expect me too since I do not spend my time studying stupid people who contribute nothing to my understanding.
I do not sink my limited precious time in holes.
|Re: God The Father Is Impossible! The Bible Is A Scam by budaatum: 4:59pm On Dec 13, 2020|
This does not sound like the girl described in the op!

Obviously I don't agree. Yours might be, but mine isn't and life generally isn't. There is an obvious point to it all, although that point is not apparent to those who don't care what God has to say.
|Re: God The Father Is Impossible! The Bible Is A Scam by Dtruthspeaker: 5:08pm On Dec 13, 2020|
Because as The Law says "A man or in this case a woman intends the Consequences of his Act after Several Warnings"!
Therefore, he who puts his hand in fire wants to get burnt, he who jumps into the sea, wants to get wet, he who drinks and drives, wants to kill himself, he who smokes, wants to kill himself, he who drinks sniper, wants to kill himself.
So also she who wears miniskirts Must Want To Get F***d!
It's as simple as that!

The child knows she is a Fool who got what was the Direct and Reasonably Expectable Consequence of her Foolishness.
Go to police station and see their faces, which of them can go near their father when he comes?
Which Father who has gone through your scenario shall go to the station to look at her?
No not One, not even you. You shall have Nothing to do with her!
Death and Destruction is for the Fool!

As if you care for her!
If my car crashes into my other car or cars, they are all my cars and I will deal with the crasher and the crashed at my time.
No other car not affected by the crash has a Right To Complain. For they are all my cars.
So it is with The Lord, All Souls are His and He said that He Shall Deal with Them All!

Ihedinobi3:The Bible says bla bla bla.
But did you know that the diseases that affect humans are more than those that affect any other species?
Did you know that the human population keeps increasing but the standard of living is not really increasing considering different things?
Did you know that there are humans that also eat humans?
Did you know that some people become transformed into something else after becoming occultists towards consuming faeces?
Did you know that there are people that rape babies or/and drink blood?
Did you know that there are people that have so many children that they can't take care of towards abandoning them?
Did you know that some people were born with this or that health problem?
Did you know that some people suffer a lot to get some necessities while others do less towards getting more?
Did you know that there are no solutions to some human health problems?
Did you know that some people get beaten to death or burnt alive because of 50-200 naira?

sinkhole:God doesn't physically interfere in activities of men at least not any more, he will only create a warning path or show signs of danger either through environment or people or distraction...
Every thing that befalls man either good or bad has nothing to do with God but are all a construct of our own actions and decisions...
Whatever happened to Uwa was very horrible but you were not there, you don't know if God had tried to create a sign for her to see...
|Re: God The Father Is Impossible! The Bible Is A Scam by odinson1(m): 11:26pm On Dec 13, 2020|
I seriously wasn't expecting this from a woman. Like you will Actually stand idly by and watch as your daughter gets raped right in front of your eyes,and do nothing because she didn't take your warnings not to wear revealing clothes.
So are you this attached to your religion that you can be This cruel,wicked,heartless Human being?
Rape is even a small matter, talk about Being torture in a burning furnace for billions upon billions of years... You need to visit a Psychiatrist because you lack Empathy
|Re: God The Father Is Impossible! The Bible Is A Scam by budaatum: 11:40pm On Dec 13, 2020|
odinson1:And what religion, pray thee, do you pressume to attach buda to? Did buda mention religion in what buda wrote that you read?
Who, in their right mind, religion or not, would stand by and watch their daughter being raped? Who, in fact, in their right mind, would stand by and watch anyone being raped?
I wonder, do you also pressume that buda would stand by and not fight to death anyone who attempts to rape buda too, because, in your own opinion, some God is more important to buda than buda and buda deserves it because buda's skirt is short?
Perhaps pressume less and seek understanding instead. You are more than capable, Great Odin's Son.
