Why God's Love is a Joke

Where is all this promised love in the Christian religion? Jesus as portrayed in the Bible never had a normal loving relationship with his earthly family. He showed no love for his supposed biological father, mother, sister or brothers. It was the opposite, he showed total disdain. An actual, loving God would provide instant comfort and guidance to anyone that suffered and experienced pain. How often does this happen? Hardly ever.

Instead he allows people that have led good lives helping others that are less fortunate than themselves and choose not to believe because of the lack of evidence, into the lakes of fire for eternity. WTF?

Joseph wasn't Jesus's biological father, nor did He have siblings, and the brothers He referred to at times were either directed at the male disciples, as in "brothers in Christ", or Joseph's nephews, James and Judas of Alphaeus, because they were close, etc. The "sisters", as in "sisters in Christ", referred to the women disciples of Jesus.

And, where in the Bible does it imply, or explicitly state Jesus "never had a normal loving relationship" with His family, and expressed "total disdain" for them?

That's incorrect, unless you choose to think that'd be correct if God exists.

I'm fine with Jesus not having a biological father or siblings. I don't think that he had a biological mother either.

It's in the context. Where does he express any love for his supposed earthly family or even respect his guardians?

Yes, this is according to your beliefs, and my take on that.

You said Jesus had a biological father and siblings, which I corrected, as well as that He had a biological mother, so I'm confused as to why you're suddenly saying He didn't, if He existed of course.

So, because you say you haven't seen how Jesus expressed love for His family, it automatically means He and they "never had a normal loving relationship", and He expressed "total disdain" for them? By that standard should I automatically think the same of you and yours, because I've never read anything about how you express love for them on this forum?

You're confusing me with Chapabel. If God exists, do you choose to believe that belief Chapabel holds is correct, and all other Christian beliefs on this matter are incorrect?

What do you consider is the best evidence for Jesus apart from the Bible? I don't think you have ever said there was any?

I think you are equally wrong and have never produced any verifiable evidence.

Chapabel believes anyone who's a non-Christian is going to Hell, solely for that reason -- there's other Christians who don't. They can't all be correct regarding this. So, if God exists, based on what you know and understand, would you agree with those like him or no?

I'm sure I have over the years, but I'll go over it again, and get back to you.

If God exists, would you agree with the Christians who believe anyone who's a non-Christian is going to Hell, and the Christians who think otherwise are incorrect? This is called a hypothetical question.

If Pachamama (Wife of Virachocha and mother of Inti and Mama Quilla) exists, would you agree with the Pagans who believe anyone who's a non-pagan is going to meet Mictēcacihuātl, and the Pagans who think otherwise are incorrect? This is called a dumb question.
