You mean that kind of love? No thanks.
Off topic, but....You're blaming God for all that?
(Oh, psst, and there's no sending of souls to an eternal hell, just sayin'.)
Oh, sorry forgot..maybe the Fundamentalists are, I'm not sure.
Was that wrong to say?

He is said to be all powerful. He is said to be ever-loving. I'm sorry, but if I love someone I don't allow them to suffer. I would think that an all powerful god could do better than the average human being.

And you folks say that we are all sinners, so therefore he hates all humans.

And again, a god, or God ought to be able to do better than ordinary people. If he hates all of us, that's not "ever loving".

I don't "hate" anyone, because to me if you hate someone you want something bad to happen to them.

So all you folks who preach what you just said are simply making the case for an ever-loving god weaker and weaker and weaker.

It's a good rule to live by as human beings, as we are all sinners. But God is not, and God is certainly justified in hating sinners, as the Bible says he does.

See. You just did it again.

God hates sinners. We are all sinners. Therefore god hates all humans.

Well at least you're honest enough to admit that your god is hateful and that he has double standards.
