So people praise a mistranslated book.. if god has so much power, what's stopping him from telling everyone himself what to believe... seems like a trivial task on his part..
why should a loving God tell us anything or reveal himself to us at all? then we would be forced to believe in him and that would take away or free will! i like my free will; it was a great gift He gave me! and we still know what books said in their original languages. and people are still working on more accurate translations in modern languages!

To avoid all the confusion and conflict that arises from the complete lack of guidance humans get. Humans believe in hundreds (if not thousands) of different gods, have different morals and kill each other over these disagreements. If god(s) do exist, they're assholes for letting this happen. Luckily, they don't.

Considering your religion says that I must love your god, or I go to hell, why bother giving humans free will at all?
He gave me!
Does your god have a penis? Why is your god male? Does he reproduce with it?

Lol. Good job writing a book that people have such a hard time understanding that it takes thousands of years to dissipater...
no humans are the ass holes for doing it to themselves! my religion doesn't say that. you have been told that my religion says that. no one all uring womanally understands my religion says that. God doesn't send people to hell. he gives all of us choices and we choose to go there or not! He She either would work. God is not a masculine word, despite modern popular beliefs. God is pure spirit. i don't like using the term it, so he is what i usually use. but she could work also! the people who wrote it understood it. it is us in modern times with faulty english translations that are playing catch-up. i think God gave us brains and he expects us to use them. but humans don't seem to like to that. instead of trying to blame religion or a God you say doesn't exist, why not take responsibility for yourself and hold people accountable for what they do to themselves and each other?
God doesn't send people to hell.
Good thing you know better than everyone else eh? amazing how you're such an expert and all other religious people know something different.
Feel free to tell me how you *know* such things. Got any proof god doesn't send people to hell?
