Yes, yes. All of man's gods claim they are the true god and assert they can prove it.

While I appreciate your input, a careful reading of my post would reveal that it is directed to those on this thread who claim to believe. I can only provide evidence, not proof that God is who He claims to be and that there are good and bad consequences in how we apply His Word.

(The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon
"I do not believe in God. It seems to me that theists of all kinds have very largely failed to make their concept of a deity intelligible; and to the extent that they have made it intelligible, they have given us no reason to think that anything answers to it."
