You have problems with reading comprehension, don't you?
I said that the laws govern
things like murder, rape, and theft. Not "the laws permit
things like murder, rape, and theft."
Do you understand the difference?
As for why pledge allegiance . . . did you miss the "absolute power" part?
I know you're using a metaphor for God in your example, but I just get the feeling that you're blowing it out of proportion.
No, not really. In fact, the daily torture until death is far less than the punishment God will give an unsaved child who steals a cookie.
You see, Ecclesiastes 9:5 tells us that the dead are unknowing.
Revelation 20-22 tells us that God will resurrect all the dead, including non-Christians, false Christians, and sinners of all sort, to immortal bodies, then cast all the unsaved into His Lake of Fire to be burned alive for ever and ever, with no chance of escape or death.
So, you never answered my question. Is that a satanic monster? Do you hate God?
Also, I'm curious. Do you sacrifice doves for burnt offerings like they did in the Old Testament?
No. Read Hebrews 10
. Jesus took the place of the blood sacrifices.
