1. But isn't god love. What type of love demands blind obedience?
2.Why does his faith need to be tested. This god seems really petty and controlling.
3. But why the lie and the pettiness.
If god were a human, he would be an abusive husband.
I think we're just going round the bush here repeating ourselves. I don't have to convince you or try to prove God to you in any way because that's just going to be impossible. If your trying to "FIGURE" this amazing God out - you NEVER will. There have been many many atheists around who have been there and eventually given their lives to Jesus. Praise him forevermore!!!
You will stand before him one day to give an account of the life that you lived. He LOVES you whether you choose to follow him or NOT!
