Thanks for the links. I'm very well versed in world religions.
There's a lot of variation on the WHY. Did you notice, on that first link, that Christianity had the longest explanation? They have it all figured out, in detail! They know God sits on a Throne, as in past times, that the people wear robes, as in past times, that they play little harps, as in past times, that there are 12 elders on both sides of the throne, etc., etc., etc... They got it all figured out, without a shred of evidence to back it.
I used to be a Christian who believed in a designer god, and that man fell, which created suffering and death. Since then I've studied Hinduism, Advaita, Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Zen Buddism, etc., etc., etc.. And I have to say, Christianity, and the other Abrahamic faiths, are the most absurd and contradict science; although, the caste system in Hinduism is nonsense, as well as other Eastern ideas.
Anyways, back to the original subject.
For a God who parted waters, walked on water, resurrected the dead, called down fire from heaven, etc., etc., I'm not seeing any miracles today. You don't find any of them on video. The Bible says it's God's will that all men be saved, and that's through belief, but this God won't heal an amputee on video. It seems God only works a miracle when it cannot be proven 100% a miracle. He'll call down fire from heaven, as long as there's no cameras. What's the worst that would happen, people would believe?
Oh, wait... God doesn't want to work miracles and make it obvious so people believe, as Jesus did. He wants them to believe by *faith*. No. That's BS. That's the line of reasoning of a man trying to sell deception.
Anyone who tells you to believe in something by faith without evidence should be taken as suspect of deception.
