Have you ever heard of the thousands of different religions that came before Christianity? If he really created us that way, I see a very big problem how he fails so hard at it. There's still hundreds of different religions going on to this day, and I don't even want to start counting them because there's so many of them. For a God's work, I'm not impressed at all.

I see this plan working very, very wrong to this day. Does God favor us over the 3rd world people? I mean come on, there's thousands of people dying out of starvation and sickness
out there because of his "great plan." Is his plan to create suffering in the south and provide elitism to the 1st world areas? I would be not the one to blame him, nor accusing he has a plan of a some kind. I say the problem are us,
because we're not actually doing anything. We should be doing what god could already have done in an instant.

We believe in God, though we never see him in person with his hands on our shoulders telling us its going to be alright. We know he's there, somewhere. And he's always listening to our needs.
Tell me more about "knowing" he's there. How do you "know" a non-observable deity is around there? Is it your tulpa?
In most cases it seems to be so, since the "messages" people receive vary quite a lot. Again, are you this is your
God you're hearing about? I could question that because I "know" there's something fishy going around with your statement.

I just can't see the help he's giving to people. There's way too much bad stuff going on, be it with gods or without gods. And again, how do you know all this?
Also, why do we need to serve him if he is an omniscient and omnipotent God? This just seems very contradictory to me. Does he need US to be what he is? Why call him God then?
Sorry, but your idea of a God just does sound right to me. There's way too much flak going on in the world to say that there's a god helping people around and talking to them and whatever.
