    The topic of this thread is theology. You can start as many threads as you want about parables or storms. This thread is about theology. Who is God? If you don't know anything about God then go away. The faster the better.

    Who was Huckleberry Finn?

    Oh, yea, that doesn't matter; he's a human invention.

    For crying out loud, it's a straightforward question.

    Huckleberry Finn has attributes. I can tell you a lot about him. Huckleberry Finn was an American boy from the early 19th century with a dead mother and a cruel father. He had a great deal of wealth that his father wanted to steal so he gave his wealth away to a judge. Huckleberry Finn didn't like rules and fantasized about adventure. He pursues that adventure by breaking free from being locked away by his father.

    Just because a character is fictitious doesn't make them impossible to describe with accuracy. Why do you thing people are obligated to describe God falsely? Just because he is made up? That is fucking retarded. You are not obligated to lie about made up characters.

    God hates 6 of these 7 things: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rabidly to evil, a false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among the brethren.

    God is a god of hate.

    Proverbs 6:16-19

    I don't know the exact chapter and verse, but the Bible clearly states, "God is love." I guess that's as good a definition as any.

    These are probably the verses you are seeking:

    “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (John 4: 7, 8, KJV).

    Here's a special gift for you, a link to one of the best Biblical research sources out there. The link provides dozens of versions and has both word search and verse search. I use it all the time.

    BibleGateway.com: A searchable online Bible in over 150 versions and 50 languages.
