Smarmy condescension does not equal love. But I doubt we'll see TBD post in this thread again now you've started responding.

You gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
You better read between the lines
In case you need it when you're older

You want to know what love is?
You want us to show you?
You want to feel what love is?
You know we can show you

Google's 'tinfoil hat to human' translation app tells me this means you believe you are God.
Good luck with that.

One uses the "safeword" to let one's partner and/or lover know of an important problem.

No, what I meant is that when one thinks they are backed by divine authority, they can become quite dangerous. The broader problem is the mistaken appeal to authority that most people seem to inherit from the religious templates they are exposed to, a feeling that truth in general has some absolute grounding. That only works for basic evidentiary facts, not big ideas.

Therefore, regardless of whatever divinity might be involved in your OP, and in spite of any nobility of sentiment in any teachings ascribed thereto, such thinking is not my cup of tea (fails due diligence).

That is odd, I do not recall identifying myself as such.

In fact I am member of the International Skeptics Forum, which is sufficient.

Oh, and a recipient of God's love, glory be!

If you want to tell us about your God, please do so. Your posts have been rather uninformative so far. We all assumed you were talking about the Christian God, but then you proceeded to tell us you don't think he's loving, and that a true God would make us Gods (perhaps Mormonism, though I doubt you're a Mormon).

So please help us with our confusion (And please don't post in all caps, it makes it look like you are screaming all the time. It's rude, and doesn't help with reading comprehension)

If you don't break the rules, you won't get banned.

GOOD NEWS

It's quite hard to be 'martyred' in this place...

OK YOU REALIZE SOMETHING ABOUT BANNING.

Your responses are a bit... unclear.

I TRY MY BEST. AND I WILL KEEP ON TRYING

Did you start your thread because you want to tell us about your God?

NO

Did you start it because you're looking for a God?

NO

If you want to tell us about your God, please do so.

I AM NOT MUCH INTERESTED IN TELLING YOU ABOUT HIM MUCH RATHER BEING HIM

Your posts have been rather uninformative so far.

SO . . .EVERYTHING CANNOT BE GIVEN AT THE START . . . .WHAT IS LEFT THEN

We all assumed you were talking about the Christian God

SO STOP ASSUMING


, but then you proceeded to tell us you don't think he's loving, and that a true God would make us Gods (perhaps Mormonism, though I doubt you're a Mormon).

DO NOT WORRY . . .EVERY STORY HAS "THE END" . . .BUT LET US WALK THE WAY . . .NO USE PUTTING IT AT THE BEGINNING.


So please help us with our confusion

I AM . . .BUT WHY ARE YOU IN A HURRY . . .PATIENCE IS A GOOD VIRTUE

(And please don't post in all caps, it makes it look like you are screaming all the time.

It's rude,

RUDE IS A SPIRIT . . THIS IS CAPS.

and doesn't help with reading comprehension


COMPREHENSION IS NOT IN THE CAPS BUT IN THE WORDS PUT AFTER ONE ANOTHER.

Who is your God?

I DO NOT HAVE ONE . . .HAVING ONE MAKES YOU A SLAVE.

What do you want to tell us about him?

NOTHING . . . IT IS NOT ABOUT HIM . . .IT IS ABOUT ME.

LOVE JOHAN

WELL 'BIG DOG' SAID SOMETHING OF HIM BEING A FATHER SO IT SHOULD BE FATHERLY LOVE MEANING GIVING US EVERYTHING THAT HE IS . . .MAKING US TRUE GODS OURSELVES.

Meanwhile, I'm waiting with bated breath to see of the OP comes back.

NOT COMING BACK WILL MAKE ME A COWARD . . .NOPE . . .RATHER YOU RUNNING OR FORUM BANNING ME . .. BUT AS FOR ME . . .LIKE A BULLDOG . .BITTING AND CLINGING.

Or maybe baited breath,

I get confused

I GOING TO HELP YOU WITH THIS "CONFUSION" . . .

A FATHER LOVES HIS SON
Might you consider learning to properly and effectively use the "quote" button?

I think it's disrespectful that you don't convert the quotes to which you're responding into all caps.

Why should your letters be bigger?

The "quote" function would be your friend, if you would let it...
