Yet you're betting that you do know he's not real and knowable.
You're laying down a foundation built entirely on your own beliefs that you know better.
Actually, he explicitly stated that he will give us a heart to know him. As such, I took him seriously and asked him, and he made himself known to me.
So, yes. As a matter of fact I do know.
To people who hate the truth, yes. Truth absolutely is offensive!
Hitler was offended by the truth, and did whatever he could to destroy the truth.
It started with slaughtering 12,000,000 human beings for no other reason than he wanted to be in control.
Stalin slaughtered 20,000,000 people for the same reason.
Mao slaughtered upwards of 80,000,000 people who stood in the way of his ideas.
So.... truth being offensive?
That does not however mean that YHVH is wrong, or immoral. It means that people who oppose the truth are not morally true.
I've stated this several times before. So I know that you have seen this.
From several different translations of the verse, psalm 18:26.
to the pure, you show yourself pure, and to the morally corrupt, you appear to be perverse.
With the pure you will show yourself pure; and with the obstinate you will show yourself stubborn.
You prove to be reliable to one who is blameless, but you prove to be deceptive to one who is perverse.
With the pure you show yourself pure. And with the crooked you show yourself tortuous.
So, as long as you continue to choose your own ways, this is exactly how YHVH will appear to you.
This is because you have chosen your own ways.
