I'm sure there are many in the flames of hell right now who used to say the same things against God.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7)

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. (Romans 12:19)

Um...you keep in touch with them to know this or are you just going on ancient hearsay?

A vengeful god eh? Yet in other parts of the bible he says he's a loving god. Well, which is it... is he a mass murderer, a condoner of rape and slavery (yes you can read about that in the bible) or is he a loving father? Very confusing isn't it? Absurd even.

That must have been quite uncomfortable.

Sure must have been. lol

Some call these men "holy," and "inspired of God." Most of us today would call them nuts.
Guess I need to look at some of the folks walking around New York City a little more closely then.

Default Adam And Eve--hungry ---ABSURD

A young girl goes for a walk in a garden. She is so unsophisticated that she doesn't even know that she is naked. She happens upon a talking snake that scars the daylights out of her. In her nearly hysterical state, she thinks that the snake is telling her to eat an apple, because doing so will make her smart.

She knows that her dad told her to not eat that apple, because the fruit on the apple tree wasn't "ready." But the talking snake scared her. She did not want to make the snake mad, so she ate the apple.

She decided that indeed the fruit was ready, and quite tasty. She told her boyfriend about the talking snake, and started getting hysterical again. The boyfriend calmed her down and went to get an apple to eat to show her that no harm would befall them.

The young lady's father was very irritated that his daughter and her boyfriend stole fruit from his tree. Very, very irritated. So mad that he forbid them from being in his garden ever again. He also berated them and made them ashamed for being naked--as they were unsophisticated. He cursed them, and wished great harm to befall them.

The young girl and her boyfriend fled from the garden, and from the wrath of her father. The father never saw them again.

The father was sad that he never saw them again. So, many, many years after their death, as they could no longer live in the garden, and had no means of survival, the father decided to do something to mollify his own feelings. He sent his son into a town to tell everyon that he really was a good father--even though his wrath for eating the fruit had caused much pain for the young girl and her boyfriend.

The people in the town didn't want to hear stories about the father being a good father, because he had severly hurt his daughter and her boyfriend. So, they threw the son out of town. The father became irritated that the son was not able to get the people in the town to believe that he was a good father. He became very, very irritated. His anger grew and grew. He became so angry that he killed his son.

The police never found out that the father had killed the son. So he was never caught.

Correct but only a third of the story.

Good observation though.
