    Maybe just talk in a more direct manner? I know what you are saying, but I would rather not have to decode every post you make.

    One can be both deep and simple in one's expression.

    Best to stick to Biblical definitions.

    John 1 has some clear statements, for example.

    John is also generally considered one of the least reliable biblical texts in the New Testament.

    Of course, but I personally would rather the deep message be direct.

    I'm not going to argue with you; I prefer to stick with what Scripture's clear statements are.

    Sure, individual statements can be clear, but the bible also conflicts with itself on many issues making the whole thing a lot less clear.

    Please try to stay on topic. I'm sure there are lots of more appropriate places you can try and sell your religion.

    That does make it easy, just follow the book.

    Funny.

    But by what criteria do you establish that I'm not a god.

    Concepts that, if we take them at face value, can't even begin to differentiate between when their object is present and absent are pretty much vacuous.

    You are a great disappointment to me right now. You've made this god very sad. I can, however, see why you're reluctant to answer.

    Because I smoke too much and am resisting temptation?
