God is the all powerful creator, you were built in his image and given the power and birthright to create. You can either repent and align yourself to His will or you can be a retard and go into the dustbin. The choice is yours.

Good doesn't exist without evil. He granted us free will, if He just went "Oh, you aren't behaving the right way, time to reset everything or mind control you" then it would not be free will. For the love of God, your retarded two second illiterate thoughts have already been answered thoroughly for 2000 years. Read a book.

Anon renounce that shit. I’m telling you out of genuine concern. You want no part of the devil. Embrace God and Jesus Christ. We are all currently stuck in purgatory. Where do you wanna go when it’s all said and done? As bad as this plane sucks hell is immeasurably worse
