Christians: What Exactly Does God Do All Day?

He helps believers with trivial problems in their lives, like money, success, long life etc while expecting human beings to stop all the wars, famines, and genocides, even though he's got infinite power and could do it instantly

Seriously, he has his followers on Earth raising money, and spreading the word for him.

He has women creating more humans.

He doesnt intervene in any wars or acts of genocide.

What does he do all day? Just sit back and watch the chaos?

Interestingly enough, I've heard many a Christian say that "the Devil's always busy."

And if there truly is a Devil, I believe he is quite busy. Evidence of his mayhem can be seen around the world.

It would be cool if God made some new animals, at least.

yea, blah, blah, blah. u believers of the bible always got an excuse to explain some of this bs. Even when one uses direct quotes from the bible u act as though one made the poo up, and not ur god. You will rarely find a believer who says "maybe I've been looking at this wrong" or "I miss understood that verse" or simply "I don't know what that means", it's just defend defend defend, even to the point where u know exactly what god means to say or do. What really makes me laugh is when numerous believers all have different meaning of bible scriptures yet they all call the non believer an . Lol. I bet some of you cats are willing to be physically violent when some one disagrees with you; guess you learn to act this way from your violent azz bible god, who creates his children then kills them and sends them to hell.

Another thing, u guys love to say "your reading it wrong or dont understand it". Sorry but if the bible says God has killed thousands of innocent people based on what their parents have done, and sometimes for what seems like no reason, then thats what he did, it aint hard to understand.

Here sum more bible verses for u to salivate on of ur bloodthirsty god murdering little kids n baby's :

Kill Sons of Sinners

Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.  (Isaiah 14:21 NAB)

God Will Kill Children

The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird, for your children will die at birth or perish in the womb or never even be conceived.  Even if your children do survive to grow up, I will take them from you.  It will be a terrible day when I turn away and leave you alone.  I have watched Israel become as beautiful and pleasant as Tyre.  But now Israel will bring out her children to be slaughtered."  O LORD, what should I request for your people?  I will ask for wombs that don't give birth and bosoms that give no milk.  The LORD says, "All their wickedness began at Gilgal; there I began to hate them.  I will drive them from my land because of their evil actions.  I will love them no more because all their leaders are rebels.  The people of Israel are stricken.  Their roots are dried up; they will bear no more fruit.  And if they give birth, I will slaughter their beloved children."  (Hosea 9:11-16 NLT)

Kill Men, Women, and Children

"Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, "Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked.  Show no mercy; have no pity!  Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children.  But do not touch anyone with the mark.  Begin your task right here at the Temple."  So they began by killing the seventy leaders.  "Defile the Temple!" the LORD commanded.  "Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill!  Go!"  So they went throughout the city and did as they were told."  (Ezekiel 9:5-7 NLT)

God Kills all the First Born of Egypt

And at midnight the LORD killed all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn son of the captive in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed.  Pharaoh and his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died.  (Exodus 12:29-30 NLT)

God Will Kill the Children of Sinners

If even then you remain hostile toward me and refuse to obey, I will inflict you with seven more disasters for your sins.  I will release wild animals that will kill your children and destroy your cattle, so your numbers will dwindle and your roads will be deserted.  (Leviticus 26:21-22 NLT)

More molest and Baby Killing

Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword.  Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes.  Their homes will be sacked and their wives Molested by the attacking hordes.  For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off.  The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows.  They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children.  (Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT)

"Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works." (Revelation 2:22-23)

Kill Old Men and Young Women

"You are my battle-ax and sword," says the LORD.  "With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms.  With you I will shatter armies, destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer.  With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens.  With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen, captains and rulers.  "As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in Jerusalem," says the LORD.  "Look, O mighty mountain, destroyer of the earth!  I am your enemy," says the LORD.  "I will raise my fist against you, to roll you down from the heights.  When I am finished, you will be nothing but a heap of rubble.  You will be desolate forever.  Even your stones will never again be used for building.  You will be completely wiped out," says the LORD.  (Jeremiah 51:20-26)

(Note that after God promises the Israelites a victory against Babylon, the Israelites actually get their butts kicked by them in the next chapter.  So much for an all-knowing and all-powerful God.)

to the best of my knowledge, this was the psalmist lamenting when he was on exile after he had witnessed his people and the babies of his people being slaughtered and taken apart. he was lamenting and saying what he wanted to happen to his enemies just as you would or do. . . however i see nowhere anywhere that even gives a slight hint that god endorsed his words. . .do you??

SCIENCE vs GENESIS

God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day"

science says:

A day (symbol d) is a unit of time equivalent to approximately 24 hours. It is not an SI unit but it is accepted for use with SI.[1] The SI unit of time is the second.

The word 'day' can also refer to the (roughly) half of the day that is not night, also known as 'daytime'. Both refer to a length of time. Within these meanings, several definitions can be distinguished. 'Day' may also refer to a day of the week or to a calendar date, as in answer to the question "On which day?".

The term comes from the Old English dæg, with similar terms common in all other Indo-European languages, such as Tag in German, dies in Latin, dydd in Welsh or dive in Sanskrit or even dag in Norwegian, Danish and Swedish.

technically there is no day or night

the sun is a star that the earth revolves around,

time comes from the spinning of the earth and how it coincides with the sun

so how did ur bible god create something that doesnt exist?

dude, u really must be off ur medication 2night. anyways, let's continue:

HAPPY BLESSINGS FROM THE BIBLE GOD !!!

"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones." (Psalms 137:9, KJV)

"How blessed will be the one who seizes and dashes your little ones Against the rock." (Psalms 137:9, New American Bible)

"Happy the man who shall seize and smash your little ones against the rock!" (Psalms 137:9, New American Bible)

"a blessing on anyone who seizes your babies and shatters them against a rock!" (Psalms 137:9, Jerusalem Bible)

I wonder if this means abortions makes the bible god happy?

no, baseless statements wit no logic or train of thot is trying to insinuate dat the person or thing doing this typing may not exist, in illogically attempting to make such comparison wit my argument, "i" have been defending my argument; "you" have been doing the same on ur part; "ur god" has never done none of these ever, only other people(like u n the ancient writers of the bible)have been helping ur incapacitated god defend/speak for himself

hope u also believe dat god used media to speak directly to muhammed n inspired/dictated the koran directly to him (same wit other people who claim the same like mormon's adam smith),  cos if u dont believe these people (just becos they claim so), i see no reason why u would want me to believe ur people who claim the same.  mudley313 doesn't exist but he can type on a computer screen; ur all powerful god can neither type nor write for himself; he need man to help him do such simple task,  is dat nigga an amputee or sumthin?

After readin d tread i wantd 2 bypass it until i heard Streetwise sayin sometin about "Common Sense"

when it comes 2 Religion there is No sense in it at all. Anybody wit Half a Brain Knows Dat:

1. D sun does not Revolve around d world. How was Joshau able 2 stop d sun?

2. Why would an Ominipresent god be bothered about piple trying 2 build a Tower 2 Reach him?

3. Y would he kill his own Son 2 Forgive Human for der sins when he can as wel forgive them witout bloodshed?

4. Y harden Pharoahs heart & kill other People's 1st born? Where was d Freewill crap in dat story? If ur 1st born were among those killed wud u stil b defendin dis imaginary god.

5. What is d point of Floodin d world wit water? His mission was 2 eradicate Evil & he failed.

6. If nothin can exist outside d creation of this god, then he is Evil cuz evil cannot exist on its own. Sendin piple 2 hell 2 burn 4 enternity means blamin others for his own mistakes.

Y cant dis god com out & speak 4 himself, y is he hidin?

Please dont mention anything about "Common Sense" cuz if u people had any, u would have seen the bible as a piece of story book dat it is.

Also In a bid to correct the misconception of your zeus question I will ive you a little chapter i wrote a while back. Hope this helps

“BOOM” AND WE WERE

I sat under the canopy of the trees, overwhelmed by the surrounding green, basking in the euphoria of natures magnificence, trying my best to decrypt the reason for the existence of existence.  This forest was a place isolated from the septic touch of man's influence, a perfect world where the trees bloom for the very essence that their leaves fall off and for once, I allowed myself to ponder deeply the veracity of my beliefs. Could such perfection have been the results of so decimating a force as a bang? Could existence really be an accident? I began drowning in the stupidity of my logic and made desperate gasps for air in scientific theories. There was a big bang and hence there is no God I reminded myself.

I heard the leaves rustle to the left of me, and my heart started palpitating at a rhythm different  from the throbbing of my soul. My eyes still fixed upon the leaves of a tree, I felt a man walk towards me and sit by my side. He looked up to my tree and we sat there gazing, silent for a hiatus of time that could easily have been a period of pregnancy. Then as if he knew what I was thinking he gestured towards the tree and said

“Quite magnificent for the result of an explosion, Isn't it?”  

I looked across at him and was taken aback by the kindness in his eyes. But the crook in his grin as he spoke mildly evoked my anger at this man's implicit mockery for my beliefs.

“Do you want to talk about it” he asked, that annoyingly reassuring smile still extending from earlobe to earlobe.

“Talk about what” I spat back.

No answer. I turned and looked into his eyes and it was as if he had rummaged through my heart and found the source of my discomfort, and then I realized that there was no point in not telling him what I was thinking; he already knew.

“God does not exist. He did not make the heavens and the earth. The earth was formed from a series of cosmic explosions commonly referred to in unison as the big bang.” I spilled out glad to finally pour out my heart to someone    

“ Really?” he asked, still smiling.

Now, I was inflamed with anger and started pouring out all that science had taught me

“ Yes, there are many contradictions to the theory of the big bang and no direct mathematical proof, but that does not change the fact that it did happen. A scientist known as Edwin Hubble made an observation that the universe is expanding continuously. Scientists later began to understand that the velocities of galaxies were originating from a single point; A point that was the arena for the event when all matter and energy was contained at one point; the point of the event called the big bang.”

I went on for close to 30 minutes explaining the big bang, the evidence for its occurrence such as the red shift, NASA'S COBE satellite detection of uniform microwaves, the abundance of primordial elements, and other such things. I yelled, gesticulated, ranted and even tried to write on the back of a tree trunk all the while proving to this unintellectual being that science explains everything, even the beginning of the world.

“So you see all these prove that the big bang occurred.” I concluded, my head held high, a vehement grin plastered across my countenance, my face still red from all the exuberance that I had just displayed.  

“So what?”he asked quietly but confidently, his eyes still affixed on the tree up above.

I looked at him as if he had lost his marbles. “So what? Is that all you can say”I asked feeling an increasing urge to kick him in the nuts.

“Okay. What if the big bang occurred. Think about it, does that mean that God does not exist?”

I was taken aback by his question and in the twinkle of an eye all my exuberance was disappeared from under me. I stared at him speechless as he continued with an uncanny illustration

“Assume that you carved a group of tiny wooden people who could walk and talk and had free will to think for themselves.”he said looking into my eyes.

All I could do was nod. He went on

“One day two of them were arguing about your existence and they had this exchange

First one:Tom created us

Second one: “No, Tom did not create us, we were carved from wood!”  

      My eyes slowly widened as understanding crept through me.

“Are you saying that God created the earth with the big bang.” I asked with a huff

He smiled at me. “No. I do not know how God created the earth, all I am saying is that the bible did not say how he did create the earth; It just said that he created it. The big bang is just another way that God could have created the earth, so proving that the big bang occurred does not prove that God did not create the earth, it actually proves HOW he did it”

He was right and the feeling was unsettling. I looked down and all that came out of my mouth was “b, b, bu, bu, bu, but, ”

He understood me and continued

“Imagine if  scientists decided to use explosions to make a hole of certain dimensions and accuracy in a particular place by controlling the explosion in the right way; they could. However, an explosion on its own would not make that perfect hole in the right place; at least not 99.9% of the time”

Then he asked me this

“So if you see a perfect hole in the right place, would you rather believe that it was fine tuned by a scientist or that its perfection is mere coincidence?”

He was right; probability, mathematics and science were in favor of the presence of a controlling scientist,

the point of the thread is the ridiculousness of the creature up in the sky who suppossedly can do all things but can't just seem to speak/write/or do anything whatsoever for himself without man, even tho he so badly need his word spread around (from instances of anger jealousy n wrath, wen things dont go his way). he suppossedly can do all things, but always needs money from mere mortals to help him spread "his word". he supposedly wrote the ten commandments in tablets n even wrote on a wall for sum king he was mad wit, but when it comes to his all important word, he just cant seem to put "his word" into writing himself. he transformed into his own son, came into the world, was so eager to spread his word across the globe, but still, just couldn't take the opportunity to put them into writing himself

so, once again, like the pic below says:

Pretty dumb i must say. The fact that a building is called a "church" does not automatically imply that God takes up His residence there. God NEVER promised He would be sitting to protect you as long as you run into a 4-walled contraption that you name a "church". He said "where 2 or 3 are gathered together IN MY NAME . . ."

try n make sense , start by answering the original question posed in this thread. i asked "what does god do all day" not what he did two thousand years ago by transforming into his own son n coming to mingle wit earthlings all in the name of cleansing sins dat are still in existence wit human blood sacrifice. he supposedly can do "all" things but always in need of money to help spread "his" word. he shows anger, jealousy, n wrath when people disobey his word but still cant just seem to use his unlimited power to help spread it, rather he leaves the jobs to humans, who dont seem to be doing dat good of a job owing to the fact dat there still are way more non-christains on earth than christians. if he so badly needs people to heed to his word why not use his unlimited power in aiding the spread as the supposedly inferior devil seem to be putting in more work in dis regard

oh ok. so all he does is watch n intervene at his own choosing

kinda like a kid wit an ant farm. ic

um, same thing goes for all em fanatical christians n muslim on here. pot calling kettle black

atleast, u guys got the all-powerfull creature up the sky backing u. u can atleast give it a try. or u dont believe in "wit god anything is possible" or u just aint into "helping" god win souls for his kingdom of gold streets n stuff

I think this is exactly what the likes of mudley do not understand. You simply CANNOT expect the privileges that come with being God's child WITHOUT paying the price for it. You cant kick God out of your lives then complain when He chooses to stay out of the chaos you have made of it.

Loving father? Who says He is a Father to all?

Check this out . . .

Just as you arent the father to that dont-know-from-Adam kid that walked up to you on the street shouting "Dad! dad!! . . ."

So God isnt a father to all and sundry . . .

There is process for that privilege and status (i.e. Father-Child relationship)

He makes no points at all. All i read is a myriad of nonsensical babblings borne out of deep ignorance of the bible itself. Notice that when Noetic tries to explain to him point by point . . . he doesnt even bother to respond, he simply says "bla bla bla" and carries on with his rant.

the photo he constantly includes in his posts (i notice the mods are ok with this but have a problem with Diva 2.0's gifs) say it all . . . he has no regard for the bible. Trying to explain to him from that same book would be like trying to flog a dead horse.
