I have spoken with a fair few Christians about God. I have sat there and said "I don't believe there is a God because he is supposed to love everyone of us. If he really did love everyone of us then how can such terrible things happen to children! How can a loving God allow a child to be abused!" The response I have had has been "God only gives us what we can cope with" and things along this line of reasoning. It is not a theory I have conjured up on my own.
Personally I think you are talking out of your arse. And by the sounds of it you think the same about me. That's cool. Just agree to differ.
