Re: Can good God do evil?

Do you agree with the definition of God is goodness? What does goodness mean this context? No, I do not define god as goodness. We live in a dualistic reality where we have both a good and evil side, a Yin and Yang side. If we have the complimentary traits of good and evil, --- and we are created i...

Re: Can good God do evil?

God which I am aiming is the Catholic God... If such is the case, then shouldn’t the title of your thread be: Can the Catholic God do evil? God which I am aiming is the Catholic God who is the creator and goodness, buy [sic] goodness I mean that God always does good. Do you mean to frame it as a Go...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Does good God have the ability to do evil? If yes, is His evil act justifiable just because He is God? I am late but--- God is said to be able to do anything and that would include doing evil. To say no would be to restrict what an Omni-everything god can do. That is not really allowed. History, if...

Re: Can good God do evil?

Does good God have the ability to do evil? The answer is just simply no. You seem to be restricting what god can and can't do. Explain. Further, god is said to kill when he could just as easily cure, which is what Jesus said he came to do. Yahweh does the opposite. Is genocide good to you? Is killi...

Re: Can good God do evil?

If you pulled out your head and read 1st testament, then there's NOTHING but evil there, not hugging and talking about things, giving out lands that already belongs to others, annihilating cities just because they dared want to have sex with strangers, even Lot's wife got killed in the fury, empowe...

Re: Can good God do evil?

The question requires the hearer to believe that "evil" is the same thing as "what God could do." In other words, it presupposes a division between God and good, and a grounds outside of the nature of God from which we could pass judgment on the goodness or evilness of His character. But if He's th...

Did god really condemn mankind? Is god a just god?

Did god really condemn mankind? Is god a just god? God’s condemnation is quite severe. Hell and death, if you are a literalist believer. Meanwhile, scriptures say that the penalty for sin is closer to what we generally view as justice. That justice being an eye for an eye. This means that the penalt...

Re: Are members of the gay community better adjusted, in a moral sense; than homophobes?

I read somewhere that when Oscar Wilde visited the USA on a speaking tour there was fear from his admirers that his turn through Texas would be unwelcomed, and in less than a civilized manner. However, since he was declaring nothing but his genius, open and upfront, he was well-received. I've found...

Re: Are members of the gay community better adjusted, in a moral sense; than homophobes?

I don't hang out with gays, and that does not make me a homophobe. Neither have I ever seen a flamboyant, in-your-face parade celebrating heterosexual identity, however I was in a small clothing store recently and the loud, lisping teenage homosexual employee celebrating his ego caused one young wo...

Re: Are members of the gay community better adjusted, in a moral sense; than homophobes?

The relevance of a phobe is determined by the actions of the phobe. An immoral thought cop is one who acts against the phobe because of the phobe's thoughts manifested as speech and not action. However, speech of a phobe that actually does third-party harm, such as slander which results in actual d...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Humanity should not be waiting for the perfect model of morality to be delivered from a God [an impossibility] but rather to initiate something feasible as a starting point and make the effort to continuously improve on it by tweaking all the relevant variables involved.

Stop prevaricating. It is crystal clear what you said; the whole world. Labels are false Mostly, true, but that does not take away from the fact that we all use them for ourselves.

I agree. Have you ever known a heterophobic person? I have not. What do they hate about what can only be described as the standard human model and sexual practices that keep our species from going extinct?
