I actually see meanings and purposes devised by us as better than an arbitrary Plan supposedly devised any one of a number of different beings who seem to exist nowhere outside of our own heads.

And hope for the speculative 'to come' is like failing to engage in gainful employment in the Hope that you will win a million. I choose something more rational.

Ask anything in my name and the father shall do it (paraphrased)

On demand means as and when required aka ASK....

Next.

Yet another post that reveals your dishonesty about "being a Christian for 30 years".

I have been a believer for a little over 2 years now, and I know the correct interpretation and context of said verse.

You should know that motives and if the believer is in fellowship with the Lord, is what determines what we receive.

Here is my definition of God:
I posit a portion of that which exists, that is read-only that exists as such only in God, and a portion that is writable to only by God and thus exists as a part of him as well. Everything else is the universe, or perhaps the multiverse. I believe that even if any portion of God were to be unreadable to the universe, it can be derived.

By some definitions of God I am a God. I am even not unwilling to become your God.

So, ask me anty questions you want and then tell me. Have I provided any solid proof or evidence for a god.?

Here I am, more ore less in an irrefutable manner. I answer all who find me in all my times and places.

Check. Feel free to dispute me on that, but I think the one doctrine is that my good is everyone's good, according to my sole judgement about covers it.

It is not my good. I will resurrect everyone in my time. Further details as to why a specific miracle did not occur can be provided.

Those who seek my will, to the extent that they seek my will will not go hungry. I cannot be responsible for failure to relocate to where there is food for you. Further refinement of how I deal with issues like famine and starvation is available upon request

As a whole, I do not see anyone as 2nd rate citizens. 2nd class citizens on the other hand... I have found that some people seek to become 2nd class citizens, if slavery is to be considered a second class. Further details are available upon request, but for reference you may see Chobits, available on Netflix and DVD, DearS, available on DVD, and Key the Metal Idol, available on DVD. Free DVD's are available upon request and my good judgement.
