Moi? Cry about every man being a sexist? By the standards that the modern world touts, GOD is a sexist. I don't complain about the standards God has established in His Holy Word, but I do make an effort to explain those standards to those with rosy-tinted glasses that filter out the more challenging aspects of obediance to The Lord.

Am I a liar?
Hmm, I am not prepared to decide on that at the moment. I do think that you are a standard-issue, run-of-the-mill, ill-informed Bible Misunderstander. You were also kind of mean to me, which makes me think you may be a douche.
Quote:
The bible is NOT about hate.
This is a typical talking point of the Bible Misunderstander. The Bible is not ONLY about hate, but there is a lot of hate in there expressed by God. Furthermore, in some verses of the Bible, we are commanded by God to hate. That is, you hate whom God tells you to hate, and God loves you in return. It's a very straightforward exchange actually.
Quote:
It's about believing in God.
Praise the Lord! This is the part you have right-- sort of. It's critical to believe, but self-defeating if you don't OBEY. That's another concept that people seem to miss.

You see, folks have all these ideas about God which they claim to have learned from the Bible, but they fairly wallow in their ignorance about what God is telling them to do right there in the very same book.

You do know that Satan believes in God far more firmly than any earthly being ever could, right? That's because Satan has met God, and talked to Him--even taunted Him on more than one occassion. You can read about this in the Book of Job and in the Gospels.

Look up Matthew and Luke, chapters 4. For some reason, Mark kind of glosses over the incident, and John doesn't mention it at all. Maybe God got tired of repeating Himself and needed Mark and John to cover some other details. Who knows? (Well, okay, God knows, but you catch my drift.)

Finally, to drive home the message that believing in God's existance isn't quite enough to secure the brass ring of God's favor, we have these verses.

James 2:19-20
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

At this juncture, I could do a whole treatise on the subject of "Faith versus Works". But why should I when James, himself, writes at length on the subject?

The take home of the two verses above is that everybody currently in hell--staff and consignees-- KNOWS that God exists with more certainty than any of us on the mortal plane. Neither the demons nor the damned are lacking in faith at this moment. The one thing they have in common is that they chose not to obey God.

So, saying that the Bible is about believing in God is like saying that cows are made of meat. It's a statement of fact; but you still have to decide what to do about it.

You can eat the meat and be strengthened.

Or you can decide that meat is murder and starve to death trying to eat weeds. (Which probably have cow poop on them anyway, so I don't know why you would do such a thing when you have a ton of steak standing right there in front of you.)


To sum up the lessons herein:

I don't expect a Real© Bible-Believing man to be anything but "sexist", and I don't waste my time complaining about sexism anyway, because, you know--God?

You really, really need to actually read the Bible for yourself before engaging in a discussion on the nature of God.

Aaand, regarding your statement below:

(Ahem.) Pardon me for shouting. Got a little carried away, there. Oh, one last thing:

It was a sarcastic statement to picture the standards of Handmaiden. At least you get my point.
If your point is that you are missing the point, then. . . Yeah, we got that loud and clear.
