A God in my head

I have concerns about a God who can access my mind 24/7 To me that would be a breach of my privacy, and I don't believe an inch that a real God would do that.

The thought of anyone reading my mind without permission is a frightening concept. It doesn't matter if a God can do that, it shouldn't unless I permit it.

Then it's even more scary to think that in heaven you will live with this God in your head for all eternity.

Yes, frightening.
God made us so he already knows how messed up we are.

Let me just tell you my thoughts here. Sure, I know what you're saying to an extant, you want your privacy, but let me just assure you that God is definitely not out to get you. Also, I'm sure that He respects you and gives you privacy when you need it like taking a shower or using the bathroom. But I find that God isn't reading your thoughts because He is looking for all the negative in them, He is reading them so that He can learn to understand them more. However, since you don't want a relationship with Him at all, it's pretty much useless of me telling you that. It's sad really, somebody loves you that much and yet you don't wanot anything to do with them and it's the one thing that comforts me and keeps me going.

Psalms 139:4 Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.

Hi Garion, If you don't believe all scripture how do you discern which ones to believe?
Or is it the interpretation you don't believe?

Yes, frightening.
You think your creator should or would act as you would if you were god (you are lord of YOUR life are you not)? What if others thought differently (as so many do)? Which God would we follow? No! Your god (you) are in Your head....

I believe the scripture that is obviously positive and beneficial to me and society and I scripture that I can quantify.

A example is overpopulation is probably the main quantifiable problem with the world today and that is due in large part to fornication because people that have a family and live within that value system probably won't be having children impulsively that they can't support.

A example of scripture that doesn't make sense to me is the Bible talk's about forgiveness for everyone no matter what they do presumably because God is so nice yet in the new world that He will create after He end's this one He will rule with a iron fist.

How can He be so lax and instantly be so stern?

I believe that parts of scripture may have been changed,that sound's like something that is would do.

Exactly, I believe that although I trust the Bible as a whole, there are just some things that seem a bit off to me. I really don't believe that God is really so mean and terrifying as He sounds and that somebody can have completely different belifes and go to Heaven because of Jesus,.. but be filled with caution Garion. We aren't on a democratic forum, it's more like a dictatorship.
