...this statement is often use by non-believers. God doesn't work that way.

God is not restricted to our limitations and could choose to reveal part of Himself to us. God could not reveal His entirety to us without causing major problems in our universe. The sudden appearance of dimensions and matter?from outside the universe would destroy anything in the vicinity and maybe even destroy the entire universe. This is why the Bible says that nobody can see God and live. However, God could reveal His nature by communicating with humans and sending an incarnated version of Himself. This is exactly what Christianity claims - that God gave messages to humans (through the prophets) and sent an incarnation of Himself (His Son), who took on the form of a human in order to interact with humans directly.

Although you cannot see God directly in this life (but you will see Him in the next), you can experience Him through your spirit. This is the claim and promise of Christianity that accounts for its popularity. When you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, you enter into a relationship with Him through the Holy Spirit. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which you will directly experience when you come to faith, confirms both the existence and the power of God to the believer. It is through this relationship that we can enter into the joy of the Lord and experience the fullness of the Christian life.

If you are not a Christian then you won't believe me. But well...

JESUS IS LORD! Amen

The all powerful God of some rustic tribe of misogynists is unimportant in the face of actual problems of the world.

The bible is not misogynists. Why would God be misogynists, when the virgin mary gave birth to him? Also the bible teach women to eb submissive to their husband. It tells women to submit to their husbands.( that means to support him and not nag and bash him)AND the next line tells husbands to love their wives as Jesus loves the Church. Since Jesus loves the church he would always treat it with kindness and patience and compassion and love. That is how a husband should treat a wife, biblically speaking.

So then why even traditionally conservative Christian families can be victims of their own domestic abuse, in the form of passive aggressiveness behaviors?

That's right, what the Bible is really teaching is gender inequality through actual segregation.

No. More like ignorance and self-deception. And your constantly ignoring my public scrutiny is self-evident enough.

Nope, everyone is equal in God eyes. I think maybe if you actually read the bible for yourself you would see that. Today's society is misogynistic. Those who actually interpret the bible the wrong way, don't deserve to read it.

I respect you. Us Christian all we are doing is trying to spread the words and just keep it real. To Atheists, life is like a party when in reality they don't know God is testing their faith.

Zoroastrianism is the religion Christianity originated from. It was the first ever religion to have a single deity(god).

It also featured a virgin birth and a resurrection of their savior.
The concept of Satan came from this religion. They called it Angra Mainyu, (I think I spelled that right, but I'm not sure)
The concepts of heaven and hell also came from this religion.
Final judgment and so on also came from Zoroastrianism.

Christianity, Islam and Judiasm are all daughter religions to Zoroastrianism.

Why not ? They all came from the same origins. Zoroastrianism gave birth to all 3 of them.

You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:13)

Makes me wonder do Atheists really seek God with all their heart? What stops them? we may never know.
