In reply to I am terrified of God, I think., posted by calamityjane on February 16, 2007, at 22:06:19

> I am scared about God and who he really is.
> I dont think he is what we think he is. There are only two possiblities in my mind concerning God --

> 1. If he made this world on purpose he is a pretty scary God. (why would anybody intentionally create such an evil world??) ( and I dont by into the whole "he doesnt want it to be like this" line. if he doesnt want it to be like this, then why does it stay like this?? If he really was as sad about the world's condition as people claim, then he would demolish it for us and put us out of our misery.
>
> 2. If he didnt mean for the world to turn out this way, if it was just an accident, then I am still just as terrified of him. an accidental world would mean God is not as powerful as we think he is, and has created a world beyond his means of conrol.

Friends,
It is written here,[...I don't think he is what >we< think he (god) is..there are >only< two possibilities...if he made this world on purpose..he is a ..scary God..{...intentionally create...}.such an evil world...I don't like the whole..{XXX}..line...as people claim..he would..put us out...an accidental world..beyond his control...].

This brings up many questions.
A. who are those that comprise the set of people in {we}, in [what {we} think he is]?
B. In the statement ,{there are >only< two possibilities},could there not be more than two possibilities? If not, why not?
C. Did God >intentionally< |create| an evil world? If so, what is the rationale that one could use to substantiate such?
D. Why would an accidental world mean that God is not as powerfull as we think he is? What is a rationale to mean that God has >created< a world beyond his means of control, even if the creation was an accident?
E. Other questions that could arrise from the text.
Lou
