    Let's look at your morals.

    Given God's power to cure as well as kill, would you cure or kill?

    Your answer likely shows you that your morals are better than God's.

    God created order out of chaos. What defines best, other than that which is of it's opposite? What is good without evil? What is up without down? What is life without death? What is a cure without a disease? and visa-versa for all other examples.

    All men/women are born into sin. All men are both good and evil. To what extent that evil exists is the exercise of free will of which God gave to us. God created us and therefore is the master of all things.

    Who creates the sand castle? The grains of sand or the hands that shape it? Whom can destroy it? The grains of sand or the hands that shaped it? What are we but grains of sand when compared to the God whom created the grains of sand? What do we know of the castle's final design or why it came to be?

    We can think. God cannot.
    We can reproduce true. God cannot.
    We can have many children. God cannot.
    We place the lives of our wives and families above our own. God does not.
    We would cure instead of kill. God kills.
    We do not torture babies. God does.
    We believe in freedom. God does not.
    Jesus does which is why he took the judgement seat from His Father.

    You can continue to adore a God inferior to you, both intellectually and morally, or become a Gnostic Christian or Karaite Jew like Jesus was. Jesus the Good as the Chrestians used to call him before Christianity reared it’s ugly head by reading their myths literally and embrace their God of War.

    Islam would be a better religion today if that had not forced Mohammad to change from a loving God to a God or War so as to fight fire with fire. Thanks Christians for Islam. Pardon the digression.

    Jesus shows the way with his advice to seek God by closeting yourself. Are you ready to follow Jesus or will you stick with your lying priests, preachers, Rabbi’s and Imams?

    Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
    John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
    Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

    how can you not believe? Jesus can walk on water, he can turn water into wine.a woman can turn into a pillar of salt etc. he is all powerful and can prevent earthquakes but he’s too busy at football games wheee they’re praying to him. (Tongue in cheek)

    If you don't like God than fine but stay out of our business.

    Its no concern of yours.

    Then don’t impose god and the Bible on us.

    How can an abstraction based on a half-evolved species of ape be compared with its own fantasy. I think we are taking ourselves far too seriously.

    We can create things to help us exceed our natural limitations.
    God cannot improve himself, or grow in any way.

    Humans are capable of true sacrifice; giving up something that cannot be restored or recovered.
    God is incapable of sacrifice, because you cannot subtract from infinity.

    God doesn't get to make choices. That's something only man has. And man has to live with his choices. Man does not cure. Man kills.

    Not talking about TheMan.

    Can you accept that Man is greater than God?

    Only if you're willing to concede that a Dung Beetle is greater than a Unicorn.

    Man is never greater than his own insecurities. That's for certain. Even if we invented a God, we've done it for good and then did zero good with it.
