But you have made a judgment by saying there are multiple faiths of equal standing. Jesus proclaimed the only way to the Father is through Him. Jesus proclaimed an exclusive faith, it's Him or nothing.
I have not made a judgement because I have not said there are multiple faiths, I have said I believe there are. I do not claim to know any of this, I just have beliefs.
I’m sure that for those that God created with that belief and for that purpose, it’s true.
I see your up to your enticments again. How many questions will you ask or create this time which none will satisfy your itchy ears?
I have heard of God the watchmaker but never God the boxmaker. Your world is filled with little boxes, all rigidly organized, sealed up and unchanging. Curious. God made you just the way you are and that is the way you are. Strange God.
I was thinking of 12, for the Christmas season.
My boxes have the luxury of changing volume, shape, color, etc., all as God wishes.
As I have said many times over the years...I may very well be right or wrong, and if I wake up tomorrow with a completely different set of beliefs...so be it.
I seek to understand you. Do you believe that God is in absolute control of and determines everything such that nothing exists except by God’s Will?
Your beliefs are best described as universal theism or Pantheism. You may choose to live in such a creation, or try to. You will, however, likely abandon such ideas when faced with the impossible idea that God is both good and evil.
If God is the progenitor of all things and nothing exists except by His will and plan He is a despot. As I said earlier, and was scolded for saying it, you are a lost soul.
If that is too personal so be it, although the Mod seems to have more trouble than you with my observation.
I will go one step further and state, in the words of Bishop E Stanley Jones, “your God is my Satan.”
I do not consider that idea to be impossible for God.
I have no trouble with your observation, as it is meaningless, just as you would have no trouble with a similar observation if I were to make one of you.
