I can't watch the video on this computer, but correct me if I'm wrong: the AFA is busy telling us that god is love and this is what he does to us if we disobey. Am I correct?

Dear HaShem,

When did you move alaska to mexico?

I think the point of the video is more that kids are corrupted by US culture than that we deserved it.

Question: How do you kick out an omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent being?

Answer: If it isn't omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.

FW, skcorefil:

The conclusion of the video is "you shall reap as you sow."


rod:

I don't get it.


Sadie:

I don't get it.

BBIM:

For all the fuss Christians and Muslims make when someone attacks/criticizes/mocks God/Jesus/Allah, you'd think God/Jesus/Allah is a defenseless three year old, not the all-powerful creator of the universe.

It came across as a 'do as we say or people will die' kind of thing.

Quite disgusting actually. As if an 'all loving' God will kill innocent people to prove a point..... [shakes head saddly].

But Sadie - these people call themselves Christians... How is JA spreading propaganda?

Yeah, I never got that bit. By my reckoning, an omnipotent being is the last thing that needs human help.

But don't you see. When you define god as love, or god as all loving, any action of that being becomes a "loving act" - even when it supposedly drowns the world's population.

That gets me too. I don't understand why God demands our attention, worship and love (to say nothing of our prayers & devotions). He certainly doesn't need them - why would He - so why is He so demanding?

Cyberkitten - Still not *getting* Religion.... [grin].

I'm tired of explaining and being accused of forming a "No True Scotsman" argument. So...
Yeah.
