I was just talking with my husband about something like that and how men are given to such genocidal tendancies and to think just how genocidal tendencies are even considered even normal.

Like the matricial tendencies in this and really all societies..
so is it really God doing it or is yet again men doing it?

because when a confused Dude.. so why doesn't he come out of his closet like bear or a lion? He comes out of his closet looking like his mom.!and pretends to be a woman. yet woman can not say anything about it wihtout being call such horrible names.

and we are told we are to except that as "normal" and yet we are to consider say someone in the Blackface as "abnormal".. and even raciest and " genocidal" even !

and MY God had nothing to do with any of those choices.. I say it is abnomral that they do not come out of their closests dressed like bears and lions and then we would let the bears and lions explain to the confused ones what bearcildal and lionacide tendancies and what they look like.. and what is really what !

and if someone is recording such profound ignorance and confusion, it surely isn't God's doing it either !
it is from and rooted in very much mankind's state of confusion.
Matricidal and Femicide is a very real present danger in most societies today and has been since a woman and children have been found to be weaker than a man!
yet in todays world it is acceptable for a big ugly hairy brute dressed as a woman to dismiss and degrade a female in public and even in her bathrooms and other such "honor" killings, sure because "those men seek to honor their mothers" right? Oh, I'm sure they are and will claim to be.. just like blackface was honoring a nigro right? ..
but God has nothng to do with men choices or obviously what men deem "Normal" or acceptable even in this society !!

men will never be women ! but men can and do kill women everyday in one way or another.

No reason to sit on it, keeping it to yourself, right?
There are some 'baby Christians' here....this is a Path of learning and sharing and helping.
Okay, my bad. John 6:44 tells us that we do not come to God on our own, or "find Him". Without His Holy Spirit drawing us to Him, we would all be lost. Human nature is such that we want to take some credit, but in this case, we cannot. Even our decision to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior could not be done without His Holy Spirit initiating the process.

That is a very real problem. My hope is always that the descriptions of the God who is love will cause people to see that the depictions of God which do not mesh with love aren't coming from the same "spirit". It's got to at least give them pause, one would think.

Can you explain how a man dressing like a woman, or someone who believes they are a woman in spite of their male physical attributes, kills women? Or even harms women in any way?

Ps. What did this have to do with maat's post about the fact that the bible often portrays God as blood thirsty, genocidal and racist? Do you agree that that is problematic?

Told me what? , don't play games. In Genesis 3 Adam blamed his Missus and she blamed the serpent. If you see it differently then let's hear it.

That reflects the culture and way of life of the times in which those things were written.

No,
Bloodthirsty only reflects those who love as Cain loved.

Abstain from blood.
For vengeance is the Lords.

True. That is why I cannot accept it as divinely inspired. IMO, what makes the abrahamic religions so dangerous is that in order to believe there is divinity one has to dumb down morality and common sense. There are good aspects to take away, but the absurdities, even today, have horrific consequences. There is no rational justification for genocide, mass rape, slavery or eternal torment in hell, yet most abrahamic religious followers accept these as righteous by their God.

But in no way is defensible or moral. They might as well be saying that their god has to lower itself to their level.
