"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
- 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

My imaginary friend Bob doesn't lie either. He says you should bet your house that the Chicago Cubs will win the World Series.

Jesus H. Christ
Sounds like God pulled all the stops when he was hardening/blinding "Follower"...

Lie and deceive mean the same thing, nithead.
5/13/2008 12:37:43 AM

Doesn't even fucking exist.

So, God makes people not believe just so he can torture them for eternity for not believing?
If you see no problem with this, you don't have the right to even use the word "morality".

God doesn't lie! God lies.

"He either can send a decieving influence to those who refuse the truth, or He may harden or blind them further"
'What harm would it do, if a man told a good strong lie for the sake of the good and for the Christian church...a lie out of necessity, a useful lie, a helpful lie, such lies would not be against God, he would accept them.'
'If you eat of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, thou shalt surely die
But the serpent told Eve that they wouldn't
. Did Eve - and ultimately Adam - die instantaneously once they bit into that fruit, it containing an ultra-powerful neurotoxin, which - at the speed of electro-chemical neurotransmission - ended the lives of A&E, there and then?
No. Therefore, a question: How can knowledge kill? Who is the 'Liar'?!
PROTIP: 9th Commandment.
...only religious 'belief' is killed, it seems.
Also, it seems, from the point of view from religious fundies - especially their pastors - the only 'sin' is thinking for yourself, just as Jonathan Edwards did
(but he doing so, and becoming an Atheist didn't kill him there & then. He's still here. Why
Thus is the real
mystery of the Bible revealed: Lucifer is actually the good guy in all of this ('Lucifer' means 'Bringer of Light': Illumination. Especially knowledge).
Ergo, your 'God of Love
' is actually the Evil
Isiah 45:7: 'I form the light, and create darkness
: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Amos 3:6: 'Does the trumpet alarm sound in a city, without the people being afraid? Does evil happen to a city, and Yahweh hasn't done it?
He even admits it in his own 'Word', no less.
