My take on the nature of salvation and the nature of God

This is an old painting of a man touching God and His angels

The love God has for us is different from a Care Bears or Tele tubby cartoon. It is a love built on blood and sweat and tears and days or nights of anxiety and pain and fear.

But it is also a love built on insurmountable good well and health and joy and celebration.

The suffering isn’t the end goal or even the process but the initial birth pain that prepares you for the praise and glory to come.

This is why I think negative thinkers are morally perverse.

God wants you to serve Him not out of self hatred but out of self love.

Humility is not about hating yourself by about experiencing the higher good with a sombreness that’s both magnetizes you and elevating you.

Being a Christian is not about avoiding sin - rather it’s about embracing good will and good conduct and upright behaviour.

Christianity is supposed to be a source of happiness and delight knowing your accessing an infinite supply of love and affection from an all powerful being.

It is not a source of depression and disappointment as we deal with our finite minds.

If your parents throw you a birthday party, they want you to smile and say thank you and take pictures so you can remember the amazing event.

Not get angry at them for wasting their money on you when they could have spent it on themselves.

Not only do negative thinkers hurt themselves - they also hurt God and the people around them.

Your reason for working is not work but money or status or experience.

So religious sacrifice is performed to obtain religious gain - not so you can ostentatiously display your piety to the world and find even more excuse to hate it.

Negative thinkers are disgusting and morally perverse - they are not doing God’s will.

They are no different from socially abusive hedonists who create female abusing porno images in their social and moral relevance to God and to society.

    I knock no one for what they take comfort in, the sect of religion they are comforted in, no one should but how can you expect to find solace in someone wearing a black robe with a Bible in his hand he is a human and is not without his faults no one person here on this planet is above anyone else religion here is not perfect people still kill themselves over believing their God their religion is the right way common sense dictates all around the universe are we not praising the same entity or god and a certain sect of religion wants all in his presence to kiss his ring when what arrogance in the one true kingdom that is not so this one act alone should awaken you to to the vanity corruption in people we entrust with such high position those you hold so high why no one should be elevated over another and you must search within you and be true about who you are what you believe and respect all for theirs not one of us here is qualified to pass moral judgment against another we are all born knowing right wrong it's how you choose to exercise them and it comes from within you you want to know why we are here ask you we all have the answers to everything it's within us all it's no secret, just look within your soul your heart,

    I consider the idea that we need salvation from a deity that only it can provide to be fundamentally immoral.
    Even if you could prove this god to me, it would not deserve my reverence.

    16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

    The Church of Jesus Christ mostly talks about God’s love for his children and how he wants all of them to make it back to him.
