The question is not about the level of God's knowledge, it is about how someone so supposedly knowledgeable yet so arrogant that he cannot find a method for forgiving them without seeking the shedding of someone's blood. But the kicker is although he sent his son to be butchered instead of coming putting himself up to be butchered instead, the world today has even more sins than when his son was butchered. From all evidence, this so called perfectly knowledgeable being miscalculated once again.

Answer: God omniscient but yet choose to go forth with His creation, is that not, as you put it "God's arrogance"?

The sad truth is that people don't show that they are at any more peace with God after he sent his son to be slaughtered. If God is so forgiving, why couldn't he just use all that knowledge he supposedly has and forgive people for their sins instead of carrying the charade that he has been carrying on with.

Answer: I am not going to bored you by sounding repetitious. There was a discussion about free will and also about the purpose of the sacrifice, look it up it should answer your statement above. 

I hear people all the time say that when they die they will meet up with their other family members in heaven. That is a pipe dream and a con job because no one knows who is going to heaven and who isn't. The reality is that no one even know if any heaven exist. Some of those people who think they are going to heaven have lived what seems to be less than good lives on this earth yet their families think they will be going to heaven.

Answer: I agree with the statement in bold. People have different ideas about heaven. Many have no understanding of God at all, but still like to think of heaven as the "better place" where we all go when we die. Ideas about heaven are often no more than vague hopes, on par with "maybe I'll win the lottery some day." Most people don't give heaven much thought until they attend a funeral or a loved one dies. It is popular to refer to heaven as the place where "the good people go." And of course, everyone they know and love is included in the category of "good people."

The people who go to heaven are all alike in one way, they are sinners who have placed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9). They have recognized their need for a Savior and humbly accepted God's offer of forgiveness. They have repented of their old ways of living and set their course to follow Christ (Mark 8:34; John 15:14). They have not attempted to earn God's forgiveness but have served him gladly from grateful hearts (Psalm 100:2). The kind of faith that saves a soul is one that transforms a life (James 2:26; 1 John 3:9-10) and rests fully on the grace of God.


Any chance I can get you to tell me about the attributes of the God you serve?
