Yet she turned to even greater prostitution, remembering her youth when she was a prostitute in Egypt. She lusted after lovers with genitals as large as a donkey's and emissions like those of a horse.

But if he's omniscient, shouldn't he have known that this would happen, and that was just going to have to condemn his creations to hell? Why would he create them knowing that they were bound for hell?

@395,331 (buspup !!x+kkCmnF4)
Yes! He also has a deal with Satan to take to hell and torture the souls he doesn't approve of (that he knew would turn out that way).

That or Satan is more powerful than him, so the omnipotent part doesn't work.

Tell me if this is true: I head that before Jesus existed, Satan felt bad for humans because no one went to heaven at that time. So he nagged God until God decided to send himself down as Jesus, so that he could experience the human condition. After Jesus was killed, some people went to heaven.

Do you know what omniscient means? It means knowing everything. Were he truly omniscient, he would have known that in creating humans and giving them free will, that some would deviate.

Therefore: god made certain actions worthy of banishment to hell yet he is the one who enabled those actions to be done in the first place!

If time is not a travelable dimension, and he can merely see everything as it is now, then he wouldn't know the future.

And if that's not enough, this video explores how if god doesn't know something, he wouldn't know he didn't know it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODetOE6cbbc

But in giving humans free will, his omiscence would have given him the ability to predict that it would cause unfavourable deviations. Shit, you don't even need to be omniscient to know that free will results in deviation.

Question: why would he give people free will, knowing that free will inherently means that people will behave differently, and punish those deviate in ways that he didn't like?

There's no way around it: god giving humans free will and punishing them for sins he knew they'd commit as a result of this is highly irrational.

Well it's a lot more complicated, such as Yahweh by description could never be the creator of the universe, and human's don't have the free will they think they do. But in its simplest form, it's basically about keeping people who make the choices you agree with of their free will and destroying those who don't, generating lots of people and then culling the ones Yahweh didn't like.

@previous (H)
You're not attacking my point directly, you're just dancing around by quibbling about the exact definition of related terms.

It's a simple premise:

- At some point god decides that there are behaviours that he does not like
- God created humans
- God gives humans free will
- God is annoyed when the use of this free will results in humans doing things that he doesn't like
- God punishes humans for exercising the free will that he gave them for violating the rules that he invented

Your portrayal of god as some sort of cosmic culler does nothing to debunk this logic. Humans wouldn't need "culling" if he had not given them the ability to think for themselves in the first place. Therefore, his supposed need to cull people was entirely avoidable.

But that's not the case! Most Protestants hold to a doctrine known as "sola scriptura", meaning they base their doctrine entirely on the Bible, without taking into account the traditions and practices of the early church.
