Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.

I dutifully sang this during my weekly brainwashing sessions at Sunday school. (But not always with the image of an execution device in the background.)

But in later years, I discovered that Jesus' propagandists did not actually have him say that he loved all the children of the world.

Did the Gospel propagandists just forget to mention that Jesus loves all the children of the world …?

Were Jesus and his propagandists more interested in their quest for political power than they were about foreign kiddies …?

Have later Christians had to embellish and inflate the propaganda to make the Jesus character into what they WANT him to have been …?

I agree. I couldn't possibly receive that which doesn't exist. Thanks for your agreement.

So is this an emission of faithlessness? You have no faith?



I am more than happy to admit my constant emission of faithlessness …!

I have absolutely NO faith in the proposition made by Christians that their Divine Leader loves all the children of the world.


I always see things in the press/media where something bad happens to a kid and they don't die and people say 'God protected him!' or 'God is good!'

Most recently the boy that disappeared in North Carolina and was found a few days later. When he asked what happened he said he was protect by a bear.
I always wondered:
If God is so good, so protective, so caring about the children, why didn't he make sure the kid didn't wonder off and need 'bear protection' anyway?!?

God seems to be in hindsight, but never foresight.

In light of billions(?) claiming otherwise, what is your proof they are lying or delusional?

He proved HIMself to me and quite a few others...because you missed it does not prove it never happened.

This would be true if God hadn't turned absolutely mute for the last 2,000 years. Until he learns to speak again, he will remain dependent on his followers to speak for him.


HE has not been mute. HE has taught me and many others -- the problem is NOT that HE is silent but that you reject HIS voice as real so contend HE must be silent. Matthew 11:15 Whoever has ears, let them hear. Generally in Christian theology the inability to hear GOD is a detriment caused by sin, not an expression of the way of things.

The fact that you see no value in GOD giving a child the situation that proves HIS protection does not mean it has no value to the kid...

Also, maybe you want to look up 'tough love' and see it that is not applicable to things you now reject.

Never said that. Just that it doesn't make sense. Unless one agrees that God likes playing games with children.

Veiled condescension aside, tough love isn't sending a child in to the woods alone in order to prove your point. That's beyond abusing parenting.

But hey - whatever it takes to excuse your God I suppose.
Very Happy

That is a big question mark and a possible appeal to a known logical fallacy.

I didn't state that any are lying or delusional. I stated that fact that God is terminally absent.

Yes, I know "Christian theology" very well. I also know that claiming something is an aspect of "Christian theology" is evidence only that something is an aspect of "Christian theology." This claim provides zero evidence that this claim based only on "Christian theology" is true.

So you claim. Not surprisingly, you, rather than God, are making this claim for him. Your very action supports my point. Thanks for providing it.
