    easy.
    There's by the way a theory this was exactly what the Nazis tried to do in their extermination camps. They tried to make g'd undone.

    Not you. In this case you could not call him "supernatural puppet master" but had to call him "daddy". And you would not like to do so, would you?

    Instead, he created humans while knowing ahead of time they were going to screw the world up.

    He rose and defeated death after 3 days.

    What liberal hate? you have a one track mind, sorry, my friend, the hate comes from you in every comment you make. I read nothing of hatred in this thread so far, your liberal hate is the only hate I see. I think you could use a dose of Jesus and his teachings.
    Thanks from Isalexi and Friday13

    This represents a logical conundrum that cannot be wished away.
    Death with Christ was not the end, but the beginning when he rose from death. Only an immortal can do that. The Romans knew he predicted he would rise from the dead, that is why they put a large stone outside his tomb and posted two Roman Guards there. This is so the idea of stealing his body and making a claim he rose from the dead could not be started. The guards fell asleep and the stone was rolled aside and his body was not in the tomb

    And I think very few people experience a death that isn't painful.

    Whether it's a baby or a 100 yr. old person it probably sucks just as bad.
    Dying of starvation is agony. You claim that God is benevolent and yet he watches these babies die because he doesn't want to give him any rain. Nice guy

    I don't understand your accusation of labeling democrats clashing with god. Most Democrats are Christians, just that they don't put religion ahead of the laws of the land. You might also learn that abortion or shall I say reproductive freedom is used by both Democrats and Republicans and atheists and you name it

    I may be important but I'm not God. No matter how hard I try I cannot make rain. But if I could make rain and if I chose not to I would be awful person

    Sounds like humans are a cute little experiment for him. Imagine if I did that with my children.

    Haven't you heard? They are no longer extermination camps. Spicer calls them Holocaust Centers
