I guess it really depends on your beliefs. But I'd like to think that if there is a supreme being out there somewhere then he/she cares very much about you. If you don't believe then the question is irrelevant. We are our own worse enemies at times. Have some faith in yourself, believe in yourself and others will then believe in you.

He inspires PEOPLE to help them, on principle, even if they don't happen to get any profit out of it, or even if the work might be too hard to do.
As a result, a lot of people end up helped, people's minds are changed about genocide and political repression, and cures are discovered for diseases.

Am I going too fast? I could take the explanation slower if you're having difficulty following--Got the Crayola crayons all ready.


What about athiests? One doesn't need God to be inspired or to have morals. Mother Theresa very much inspires me even if I don't share her views most of the time. I'd say a good 90% of the time I don't believe in a higher power and yet I have good strong morals. I think genocide is evil. I work hard, I help others, I have an overabundance of empathy and do many things without wanting pay just to help others. That's probably why I'm so damn poor. I think you're getting empathy and God confused. I have one but don't necessarily believe in the other most of the times. I need one to be a good moral person but not necessarily the other.

Empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

Am I going to fast for you? I could go slower for you if you're having difficulty following--Got the Crayola crayons all ready.

Based on that last line: One doesn't necessarily need God to look down one's nose at another but the two do seem to go hand in hand a good percentage of the time.

Thou shalt donate $500 to thy local church and thou receive one's answer through an intimate confessional with God.

Religion is about you believing in god, not the other way around.
That means god have lost faith/hope in mankind.
So would that mean no faith on earth is needed?

Oh god, thank you for involving the Crayola crayons into that. You made my morning.

Faith is only needed if gods are real and there's no evidence to suggest they are.
Further more there's no reason to believe a god would do anything for anyone even if they were real.

Yup.

41 years on this earth and you still haven't smelled the coffee. Empathy is just your personal preference dressed up. Empathy isn't universal, even if it was, you're just equating empathy with "morality", I could do the same with "survival" or even "god's will".

It's an interesting question. From a Christian perspective I would have to say God doesn't believe in us that we could redeem ourselves or control our evil impulses. Which is why God chose to intervene in the history of Israel and specifically in the incarnation of himself as Jesus.
Posted 8/27/16
Of course he does. But unless you let him rape you, you're going to hell. #christianbeliefs

Do you say, god have actually done something?
Also why calling god for him?
What more did god do right or wrong?
