In an era and region where other "gods" demanded the brutal sacrifice of children as a sign of loyalty, God Almighty sent His Own Son -- perfect, sinless, blameless and Holy -- to be a sacrifical lamb, heaped with all the sins, hatred, evil, stubborn disloyalty of all the world, to die a hideously painful and disgraced death as a means of redemption for even you. God loves us more than we can every imagine.

He loves us so much according to your book that he created us sick and commands us to be well or to face eternal torment by fire. Sounds like love to me.

Even granting your distorted premise, that wouldn't be so bizarre if He did not also open a door for you to receive wellness.

This gets into an area where the bible bears scant witness and much theological speculation abounds. The bible DOES say that man was created upright in the beginning. Then there was a group event in which all human souls fell; it doesn't come out and SAY that involved willing consent but the way it is described ("all sinned") appears to strongly imply it.

At any rate, we're bearing witness that your house is on fire. Want to call the fireman or want to argue that a good God would never let that happen?

I mean, if He did open a door. Which we bear you witness that He did.

Only a worm would accept being created sick and being commanded to be well.

Projecting much?

He gave us the choice to be "sick" as you put it, or well. It is OUR choice, and our responsibility. The First amendment does not provide for the separation of Church and State; read it, and the entire Constitution. The amendment recognies the free exercise of releigion, not the establishment, nor the refusal to allow it. Jefferson taught Sunday School in the House Chamber. The signers of the Declaration and the Constitution prayed for guidance. They did very well, if we would but continue to honor their products.
