    God never hates anyone. He hates sin. It's us who turn our back against Him and do stupid things and wreck lives.

      Spoiler: There is no god and no sin. You live and then you die; Game over, no continue. Religion = "Supernatural" "Nigerian" scam.

    Luther, Calvin, Joe Smith, Henry VIII, Wesley, Roger Williams, the Great “Babs” et al, founders of Christian-based religions or combination religions also suffered from the belief in/hallucinations of mythical angel visits and "prophecies" for profits analogous to the myths of Catholicism (resurrections, apparitions, ascensions and immacu-late co-nceptions).

    Current problems:

    Adulterous preachers, pedophiliac clerics, "propheteering/ profiteering" (e.g. Junior Bakker) evangelicals and atonement theology,

    I feel soooo sorry for those who think they know better than God and also think that He is accountable. just the very fact that there is a judgement after death irritates them. it is clear you don't want to face the truth. Anyway, as 'True' said, It's up to you to choose to deny or accept God. My message to 'True' is ' Well done! You have done what you have been sent to do. Keep prayin' and spreading the word!'

      Which god would that be? Because they pretty much all carry the same 'believe or burn' message.

      A crime boss creates a situation where street gangs terrorize the neighbourhood.
      A crime boss makes the rules for protection from the street gangs.
      A buisness man refuses to pay the extortion fee.
      A crime boss has buisness man killed.
      Your God created Hell.
      Your God made the rules for Hell.
      I reject your God and His Hell.
      Your God sends me to Hell when I die.

      Why do you consider the actions of one "murder" and the other, the "fault" of the victim? You have a warped sense of morality.
