Is God Bias??
August 11, 2016 6:16am CST
I have come across some post which mentions that God told me this , God told me that. I do respect God but I do not know if all this is true. Are they trying to say God is bias?? If yes then are they promoting or defaming him ? Secondly if God talks to everyone then why do you need to post what God spoke to me . Do we mention our daily conversation to everyone. Lastly I feel are they promoting God or themselves ?

Don't know which post you read or what it was saying but will comment on the question of is God biased? Ask David? Perhaps the Philistines during their week long drinking parties thought the Isrealites were promoting themselves or their God. Not sure about that but I do think God doesn't need promotion but perhaps people do whether they are godless or wanting to be in God's favour. What is wrong with being biased in the latter case?

My point of view is not only an opinion, i have a bachelor in Theology (the science of God), and I served as Minister for the seventh Day Adventist Church for 4 years, before resigning, I am talking as a person who know what he means. I also finished a Master on New Testament, majoring in Pauline Epistles, the writings of Paul, and it's basing myself to the Romans epistles, in chapter 9, starting verse 13, that I made my answer. Unless you are a person who don't regard the Bible as an Authority in defining God, but if you are, then you understand that I did not pick this answer

@chris2050 Mr. Minister , you said "He bless who he wants, he has Mercy on who he wants, He show Compassion to who He wants ". My question is if we all are his creation then why will he not bless the other? One last thing . I can follow another religion. I hope you are not telling me that if I do not believe in bible I will die in hell.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, that's just a fact. You don't have to like or believe in God, but only respect the opinions of others. Also, there are people who mention their daily conversation with everyone, they do it because it makes them feel happy to share.

@zap_81 I can tell you, I'm not offended. You posted what you felt, that's fine. Other people's opinions are their own. It's OK to write what you feel. I can understand. No one wants to offend anyone by what they believe. You, like everyone else, has every right to believe what you believe.

I am late here, and a lot of content appears to be changed in the responses, comments and the post itself. Still, would like to ask: What made it an FOE issue as you have asserted in some comments..... I didn't find anyone who "feel otherwise". Defensive

I suppose that the truth is that some people believe that God has told them this or that and that perhaps some people get it wrong, mishear or even, perhaps, imagine that a voice in their heads is 'God'. Such people may not be wrong - they may just be interpreting what they experience incorrectly. Your second point supposes that 'God talks to everyone'. Well, perhaps he does but, some people are like a radio tuned in to the wrong wavelength. Then again, not everyone may be listening and some may have misheard what was said. Perhaps, even, God talks to each of us personally so that what he says to me may not be so relevant to you? I don't think that anyone is trying to say that God is biased, though it may well sound as if they are saying that their religion is the best. Personally, I believe that no religion is perfect - all have been changed and misinterpreted down the ages by humans trying to explain and elaborate on them.

Firstly I stand corrected that I do respect god. I have changed the post and rectified the error. I agree with you on the point that it may be a particular person's view or for that matter a feeling that God has spoke to you. My point is I have seen enough God Man duping people under the name of religion. I have also seen false prophecies. People need to be careful of such things. Its my view and it can be different from others. The problem is the assurance and the confident by which people say I have met God or for that matter spoken to him. Lastly I do not intend to be rude but if I have question, I will ask and if being rude is all you got then that just shows how weak your argument is.
