    Different faith communities, denominations and churches teach various ways about the grace of God. Some of the teachings are Biblical and some quite unbiblical. Grace of God is one of the most essential teachings of the Bible and therefore it is important to understand what the Bible teaches about the grace of God. I will try to go through what the Bible says about the grace of God. My article does not cover everything about God's grace, but deals with it from a few important angles.

    This is what I was thinking.

    If God really exists then he must be a bastard and a bully of the highest kind.

    In my opinion God just doesn't exist.

    God is a fictional Character portrayed only by actors in films and tv shows but there is no proof that God ever existed.

    Let me ask you this:

    What has God done to you, have you ever seen him?
    Has he ever spoken to you? Has he ever provided financial assistance to someone in life or cured someone from a terminal disease? Has God ever helped someone who is starving and homeless?

    The answer to all these questions is No because God is simply a fictional character portrayed only by actors in films and tv shows.

    God is just a product of our society. He is not real. He is a lie.

    When we sort the truth from the lie we can get to a sensible moral value system that can carry us into the future. Until then we should get used to injustice after injustice smacking us in the face.

    Petri loves preaching and linking to his blog. I've never seen any replies from him.

    Maybe if he would give Trump cancer I would change my mind and think that prayer works.

    What a terrible study.
    They didn't find any trace in mummies because so few lived long enough to die of cancer.
    Cancer is what's left once we eliminate the maladies that kill us at an earlier age. (Not to mention the process of elimination that is the high rate of infant mortality.)

    'There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer. So it has to be a man-made disease,'

    What a joke.

    If a God really existed then bad things wouldn't happen to people and also people wouldn't need to die.

    If God really existed then he would make us immortal and free from the effects of disease, aging and accidents.

    But the fact is that people are dying every day mainly from disease or from accidents, therefore God doesn't exist (and probably never existed too).

    Why? Roman gods were petty and vindictive.

    Why would God want us to be godlike?

    Why is that?

    No-sequitur.

    There is a difference between 'God' and 'god(s)'.

    We are essentially. Godlike.
    God wants us to remember that.

    It is grammatically understood, and grammatically accepted by those who have no reason to deny God, with no reason.
