Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Delusions of granduer

"So when in the Bible God orders the deaths of children and babies that is a moral act? Can you explain to me how exactly that is moral because I, from my sinful human point of view, think that this is evil and vile? As such I could never follow or love someone who would order such things." Rabbitpirate

I’m not sure if you have heard of the phrase "delusions of grandeur." I will explain it to you anyway. It means that someone has an exaggerated view of himself. The dictionary says that it’s "an idiosyncratic false belief that is firmly maintained in spite of incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary."

The ultimate delusion of grandeur is when someone, whose heart is soaked in sin, stands in moral judgment over Almighty God. There is no analogy to that would fit such a delusion. But that’s what you are doing. Take a minute to go through The Ten Commandments with a tender conscience, and you will realize that your heart and soul are desperately wicked (as is mine). So who are you to stand in judgment over God and tell Him right from wrong?

It may come as a surprise to you but God Himself proclaimed the death sentence on the whole human race--on all men, women and children. We will all die because we have violated a Law that requires capital punishment. The soul that sins shall die. Proof of your sin will be your death.

So, back off a little, think about what you are doing, and take a moment to realize that you are not God.

By the way, what is your stance on abortion?
