Wouldn't the lack of certainty make them agnostic? The atheists i knew, almost all of them, said there was no god. They didn't say they did not believe in god, they said there is no god, as fact, like they had discovered it to be true.
Maybe it is less about testing you for results and more about seeing you grow as a person, see you develop and learn things for yourself. Also people helping each other out builds bonds between each other, maybe he wants us not only to be evolved but also to come to create bonds of fellowship, and choose who you want as companions. All just theories, but they seem to make sense to me.
If I was a terrible person I think that god should find a way to fix me, find a way to teach me the right ways to live. One of the many things i disagree with that is in the bible is god throwing people into a fiery pit of hell for all eternity, if there was a hell it would not be a place of eternal torture, it would be a temporary place of learning, to give people another chance. Why would god create men and than throw away some of them into a pit of fire, that is wasteful, and why create them to begin with if he knows that they will end up wasted anyways? I have more questions about god than answers, and i know that i disagree with much of the bible, but i still believe he more possible than impossible.
That was written on a pro-paedophile blog called Boychat by a poster who calls himself Sir Sympathy. It's very clear to me that this person has not read the Bible properly, and does not understand what the Bible says concerning healing forgiveness redemption and eternal damnation. I will try to explain.
The Lord God made this planet, along with everything else, the whole universe, all the stars and everything in space. He made all the animals and plants, and he made man in his own image, and a wife for that man to love and cherish, Adam and Eve. But Eve listened to lies about God, was tempted to take what did not belong to her, tempted her own husband and they were decieved. They lost their innocence that day - they hurt God. They did a selfish thing to the one who had given them so much. I don't know if they fully realised what they did.
God was friends with his creation. He walked and talked with him in the evening. How can you be friends with someone who has listened to lies about you, lies that encourage you to steal from you?
People talk about an apple, it wasn't an apple they stole at all, it was the fruit of the knowledge of Good and Evil. The devil told them they would not die if they stole it - that was a lie - they died the second they bit into it! They were tempted to steal it to be like God - THEY ALREADY WERE LIKE GOD - MADE IN HIS IMAGE!
They were made in Gods image, but they were tempted into wanting more - they were tempted to actually be God. They were like a little boy and a little girl, getting into their parents wardrobe, taking Dads credit card to spend on sweets, putting on Mums high heeled shoes and lipstick. They took what had been forbidden - with good reason - to them.
God talked with man in the evening. God was sharing his knowledge already! They didn't have to steal it!
The devil hates God. He brought mankind into his own argument with God. Satan was the brightest angel of all, but he wanted Gods worship, he wasn't content with being a creation. Satan has done everything he can to bring the whole of mankind into rebellion against God. Look at it, what the world has become.
"If I was a terrible person I think that god should find a way to fix me, find a way to teach me the right ways to live."
The Lord Jesus Christ died for all of us, so we could be redeemed. That even includes repentant paedophiles.
"One of the many things i disagree with that is in the bible is god throwing people into a fiery pit of hell for all eternity"
Sir Sympathy is right on this point. God won't throw anyone into a fiery pit of hell. We are all already standing on the fiery pit of hell - it's just that the funeral pyre isn't lit just yet. This earth is going to become that fiery inescapable pit of hell. We Christians aren't waiting for Jesus to come back to wreak vengeance on those who persecute us at all - He's coming to take us away from the terrible end!
It's very important to read the Bible properly, with a humble heart open to the Word of God. You can make a lot of mistakes understanding it if you don't do that.
