Namdio:
Before I get into it, I'd like to apologise on behalf of all Christians for the behaviour of the few. It takes effort try and argue logically, and not everyone is as conversant with it as you.

Nice to see you again dear. I trust you are doing good.

Namdio:
So I looked up the definition of the word "accept"

to believe that something is true:

https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/accept

(I choose this because I didn't think the other definitions fit the usage in the sentence.)

Looking at things like this, it becomes clear why God is intolerant following the above definition (and the belief that God is omniscient)

As an omniscient God, he of course knows what is empirically true, so why should he accept (believe to be true) a belief that is not?

So on this point, I have to agree with you, God is intolerant, because He knows What is actually true.

This is an impressive analysis. It makes sense that a sentient being possessing infinite knowledge will not entertain any idea that has no truth value. So this strengthens my argument even more.

Namdio:
However going with another definition of intolerant

1 : unable or unwilling to endure
2 a : unwilling to grant equal freedom of expression especially in religious matters

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/intolerant

We can just as equally see that, yes, God is not intolerant. If not I'm sure you would have already died for all this (supposed) blasphemy, or would not even be able to blaspheme. Or that anyone would be able to go against him for so long (because endurance should have a limit shouldn't it?)

I already had this idea in mind. That's why if you take a quick stroll to my first couple of posts on this thread, you'll notice that when I was speaking to God's intolerance, it was specifically in context of his personality and his actions in the Old Testament, including the Pentateuch (first five books written by Moses). I brought up Sodom and Gomorrah, The Flood of Genesis, and even Uzzah and the Ark of the Covenant, among many others. God's behavior and actions in a lot of stories from the Old Testament is the very definition of being unable or unwilling to endure or grant equal freedom of expression especially in religious matters.

Of course, our capacity for endurance has a limit. Tolerance lies on a continuum, and my understanding of God's tolerance levels -- based on the Bible -- is that it leans more towards the negative end of the continuum. The Bible God is insistent on people taking his way or the highway. He never ever comes to the acceptance of people doing things contrary to his will. They will have to succumb eventually -- no matter how long it takes -- or they will face destruction. God may bide his time, waiting for people to repent, but it doesn't exactly indicate tolerance, which colloquially translates as "live and let live".

Strange how you don't see that the malicious exclusion of individuals who dont practice your specific faith is the direct antithesis of promoting love and peace. You're no different from any other cult group that is only satisfied with the selfish interests of their organization at the detriment of external relations of the cult members with their own family members and harmony with the world around them. Just stop abeg. You're too delusional.

Plus I like how you only addressed the exclusion of ex-members and didn't address the other criticisms I brought up. You're not just deluded. You are wilfully ignorant.

Since you think quoting religious texts to non-believers of that religion will somehow convince them that you are right, then I'm obligated to quote from a religion you don't believe in as well to convince you that you are wrong.

My discussion with you has nothing to do with politics. You're blatantly and dishonestly shifting the goalposts. We were talking specifically about Jehovah Witness practices, including their malicious exclusion of members who don't abide by their doctrines. The link I showed of Amy Whitby who suffered abuse and mistreatment at the hands of Jehovah's Witnesses had nothing to do with politics. You're getting really desperate now, aren't you?

MaxInDHouse:

I am also not forcing you -- and I never ever forced you to engage me in any kind of discussion. But if you think you can just peddle any random balderdash you feel is right to me and assume that I won't question or heckle you thoroughly for it, then you are sorely mistaken. I will keep heckling you until you admit your errors or till you resign. The choice is yours. I'm not letting you off that easy.

And I didn't insult you. Please learn the meaning of an insult. It is a FACT that you are delusional and wilfully ignorant. Our correspondence so far is sufficient proof of this.

And so? You and your fellow "witnesses" are not an authority on truth anymore than Mormons, or Seventh Day Adventists, or Catholics, or the Muslims, or the Buddhists, or the Hindus are. Just because you've taken the liberty to handpick superficial elements of your preferred cult group to claim superiority over other cults does not negate the "TRUTH" that other cults lay claim to. This is why I said you're delusional. Or do you think if you were born in Afghanistan, you'd be a Christian, talk less of a Jehovah's Witness? Lol.

Meanwhile, I see you are still running from the other criticisms I brought up concerning the Jehovah Witness doctrines. But I understand if you are too chicken to actually address them.

Please how far has the book you're quoting influenced people from all the nations like the Bible that gathered millions throughout the earth under one umbrella.

I present to you JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES the product of that book i'm quoting: BIBLE

The story of Jehovah's Witnesses having serious issues in countries like Germany, North Korea, South Korea, Croatia, Russia and many others where Jehovah's Witnesses has been banned for shunning politics, racism and military services all due to the love we have for our neighbours!

So tell me more about the book you quoted and those practicing what is written in it so we can discuss about the benefits just i am rubbing the achievements of Jehovah's Witnesses in your face! cheesy

First of all, by bragging about the extent and/or measure of the global penetration of your religion, you are making the rookie mistake of appealing to popularity -- a very basic logical fallacy known as Argumentum ad Populum. And even if we ignore the fallacy, I'd also like to bring to your attention that Islam is currently the fastest growing religion, poised to overtake Christianity in the near future. What do have to say on that front?

Secondly, I'm not a Buddhist, so discussing the benefits of Buddhism with me is a pointless exercise. The relevance of my quote was evident to anyone with half a brain to understand. If you are so interested in the benefits of the practice of Buddhism, you can check out the following links: LINK 1, LINK 2, LINK 3

Thirdly, we know the REAL reasons why Jehovah's Witnesses have been rightfully condemned in some countries. Most of those reasons were pointed out to you, the majority of which you hilariously dodged.

Of course, our capacity for endurance has a limit. Tolerance lies on a continuum, and my understanding of God's tolerance levels -- based on the Bible -- is that it leans more towards the negative end of the continuum.

I'd first like to say, I hope we agree that the longer you can take something, the more tolerant you are (I think this is what you meant by tolerance lies on a continuum, correct me if I'm wrong)

After this, the problem we face is that we don't know exactly how long these things went on (with your cited examples as a basis, and exception of Uzzah, I don't think I can handle that one). The Bible is a collection of subjective recollections of events, so we only know as much as the writer wrote. We don't know for how long Sodom and Gomorrah existed before they were destroyed.

For the flood, the world had existed for 1656 years before it was wiped out, an incredibly long time (albeit from the perspective of man)

I hope I committed no fallacies, this argument doesn't seem all that strong to me, but I hope I got my message across.

uche40:

God may bide his time, waiting for people to repent, but it doesn't exactly indicate tolerance, which colloquially translates as "live and let live"

I think the better way of viewing it, is that His way is the way that works. Nature has a way of finding the best solution to a problem (or at the very least the one that works). It doesn't matter what the organism started out as, the theory of evolution states that they will become more complex and have more specialized organs.

It is either you evolve to be more complex or you die out, because others do better than you. As an omniscient being, God is able to see this best path, that way that all other ways eventually lead into and advice the man who listens accordingly.

So it is true that it is either His way or no way, because all ways lead to His way.

Even evolution talks about it. Creatures who refuse to evolve die out.

(I don't think I did a good job with this arguments, any idea on how I can do better. Thanks in advance)

Here you are suggesting that God must have a high degree of tolerance because the various incidents of sin in the Bible may have occurred for a very long time before God laid down the law on the defaulters of his commandments.

Your argument, however, accidentally negates God's omni- attributes (particularly his omniscience and omnipresence), because it assumes that God is subject to change in time. This is in direct contradiction to the traditional philosophy that God is timeless and can observe all events simultaneously along the space-time continuum. It would therefore be erroneous to suggest that such a God experiences time-related progression.

I understand your reasoning here but I don't think it really does anything to refute the reality that God is intolerant. Sure, given that he possesses infinite knowledge and infinite goodness, he should know all things which are true and beneficial to his creation and want his people to abide by those things. Thus he labels all things which do not benefit his creation as evil, and he demonstrates numerous times in the Bible that he is disgusted by this evil and doesn't tolerate it.

I should point out here that being highly intolerant is not necessarily a flaw in God. It's just his nature. The Bible illustrates him as an authoritarian figure. Some Christians even see it as an admirable quality of their God. Some others perceive it as an insult when others say their God is intolerant. But it's just the truth. He is intolerant.

Forgive my response if it seems less detailed than expected. I'm pretty busy at the moment.

I just thought of something, which I think is very funny.

One of the names we call God is the Unchanging Changer. (it has nothing to do with your argument just wanted to point it out)

Now to the argument. Being omniscient, indicates that God would be aware that we experience this continuum, even if he doesn't. And he could relate to us, with the notion that we experience this continuum in mind.

I made it perfectly clear numerous times that I don't care to hear your preachings and hermeneutics and I told you verbatim at the beginning that I don't have any need to worship your God and tend to his infantile needs. So, I'm guessing you have short term memory.

The truth is that you think YOU are the sole authority on what the Bible says is true or false, and you thought you could dazzle me with your claptrap but you failed.

However, the spiritual man (true believer) examines all things, but he himself is not examined by any man. 1Corinthians 2:15 wink

Imagine thinking your Biblical scriptures have any basis in reality.

Your request was granted with three links showing the benefits of Buddhism to its adherents and the society at large. So if you don't mind, please go and sit in the corner as it is clear to me now that you've used up your intelligence bonus for the day. You've become boring and tiresome. When you're ready to honestly address the evils of your cult group, let me know. For now, you're interrupting my conversation with a more decent and reasonable Christian.

You're welcome dear. Pointing out the absurd fantasies of religious fanatics will always make for an entertaining read grin.

No weapon formed against you will have any success, And you will condemn any tongue that rises up against you in the judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, And their righteousness is from me,” declares JEHOVAH! Isaiah 54:17

You should have invited the Buddhist to come and speak for his religion instead poorly trying to defend what you don't know.

We are the worshipers of a real God! Psalms 115:4-8 wink

I hope you can see now that when I called you delusional, it wasn't an insult. You are clearly having imaginations about what I've been saying on this thread.

Your problem is the same as your neighbour claiming religionists, instead of reasoning with people to deliver a friendly message of hope you just want to impose your opinion on others and when they object you either insult or curse them based on the perspective you're seeing matters.
Misinformed religionists do threaten others with eternal torment while atheists like you mock them and when that's not working you resort to annoyance insulting people for disagreeing with you.
So don't think it's only the religionists that are delusional whatever makes you insult people simply because you're chatting on what they believe makes you delusional as well, the gift of speech and expression shouldn't be abused it's a privilege to have a neighbour with whom you can share what you have at heart but when they say "NO" you should move on gladly knowing fully well that it's a free world! smiley

I've been following this discussion from the beginning.

I can't help but commend your patience when it comes to dealing with these guys. You've dismantled their baseless points pretty impressively.

MaxinDhouse and Dtruthspeaker are 2 of the most intellectually dishonest people I've ever encountered on this platform.
