How many times, dear, must a community tell you that your posting style is perceived, even defined, as shouting, and shouting rudely, at that, for you to accept (or at least acknowledge) a norm?

It is part and parcel with your refusal to use the "quote" function correctly, which (in addition to conforming to an accepted norm) clarifies your posting (at least as far as attribution of that to which you claim to be responding).

Further, your use of scare quotes around the simple English noun, screed, demonstrates that you do not understand its meaning.

What are you talking about? None of this makes sense.

See? Just use the quote function properly.
you spoke about a cat and about a God that threatens . . which He should not do. So I agree with you . . .only a "big cat" a lion can threaten.

Yep I see but I still do not know how because you are not telling me how.

Actually I like to believe in a God who is Love . . .and will make me His child in the true sense of the word. Meaning I have a Father
and can look up to Him knowing that I am growing up to be like Him.
Where His power is not really that important but rather His Fatherhood and what a Father stands for.

Well . .. for one thing . . . I started it to enjoy it. No use doing anything which is a pain. While we are enjoying ourselves . . .what is important is materializing. So let us discuss the possibility of an existing God of Love and what makes Him "a God of Love" . . .some laugh at this . . .so no problem . . Let us laugh also . . . .and as for you . .let us discuss God having done what I am speaking about. If he has not done exactly that . . .how would I know of the existence of it. Through all of His creation He said. There should be families. Where the children is the joy of the parents . . and the parents the joy of the children. And the children grow up to . . .one day . . have the joy of the parents.

That is the essence of the God of Love.

Love Johan

Wisdom can be seen. It is evidence in itself. Because human beings do not have it. And when it is seen it is obvious the presence of God. But much more than this will be provided.

Every theist in history has "known" that their god existed, and yet you'd agree that they were all wrong except those who worshipped your god... how do you know that they're wrong and you're right if your method is the exact same as theirs?

To me this always poses a contradiction.

A truly loving god would not need a religion, after all, it would love it's creation and therefore anything we do is good and thus there is no need for any of the trappings of the many earthly religions.
So if you truly believe god is good and loving, there is no need to preach, no need to convert, no need to convince and certainly no need to proscribe things, as god loves all.

On the other hand, the 'love' described in the torah, bible and koran (and maybe other religions, but I don't know those that well), to me always comes across as the love of an abusive, drunk parent. Sure, that parent loves you, provided you follow all the rules and meekly accept getting beaten if she/he is drunk and angry so they can forgive you for bruising their fists the next day. And those that preach this 'love' always come across as the older siblings that have just accepted this state of being and now tell the rest how to get beaten as little as possible.
