I am sure you BELIEVE that Ken, that is why I have often said that you do NOT know the bible, much less God.I’ve never created a God, that’s what believers do. When I speak of God, I speak from what various theists have said, and are saying about God. So if you think I speak of a false concept of God, it is because there are a lot of theists out there who describe God this way.
Please show me which theist has stated that the God is anything like this that you described:
See Ken, these are your opinions.Earlier a few pages back, I listed a few reasons, I believe it was to ablecainsbrother. It basically boils down to, the bible describes God as being all good, all knowing, all powerful and present everywhere. But when you look at the Bible, there seem to be specific times when God’s actions contradict those descriptions of him. Basically you can’t be all good, yet do bad things. You can’t be all knowing yet act surprised, or change your mind occasionally etc. etc.
Then there is my personal experiences; back in the day when I was a believer, and I tried to have a relationship with God, knowing what I went through to no avail; if God did exist I believe I would have experienced him. I guess the invisible and the non-existent sorta look alike to me; if something is invisible, to me that is evidence that it doesn't exist.
You believe that the actions of God in the Bible are not consistent, not the actions of an all powerful and all loving God, BUT you don't state WHY this view you hold is correct ) other than it being your view).
See, you seem to take the "humanization" of God in the bible ( He is surprised or changes His mind) as contradictions to His omniscience BUT have you ever studied the subject at all?
Studied the answers to your issues with how the bible portrays God at times?
As for you not experiencing God, I have to ask you, How do you know?
