God expects me to forgive people even after they die. God wont forgive you for not accepting him while you're alive. It's too late after you die. He won't forgive you. Is God asking that I be MORE forgiving than Him? How can I be asked to be more perfect than perfect? What brand of "perfect" is He that I can be better?

god never told anybody the requirements for forgiveness. if god is similar to how many religions describe them then they would always forgive anybody if they are actually sorry and intend to not repeat the same mistake again. not believing in god is a logical thing to do since nobody has really proven their existence, so you would not get punished for it if they were real. also if god were real i doubt they would expect you to be perfect after being given an imperfect body in an imperfect world. all they might want you to do is to try to be better and help others become better. if you're as good as you think you need to be, then you still need to try to maintain yourself.

Sure he didn't. Except for Leviticus 6:7, Leviticus 5:16, Numbers 14:20, Joshua 24:19, Isaiah 33:24, Matthew 6:15, Matthew 12:31, Mark 2:7, Mark 3:28-29, Mark 11:25, Luke 5:24, Luke 7:47, Acts 2:38, Acts 13:38, 2 Corinthians 2:10, and, ironically enough, Leviticus 4:20

Yo if you wanna learn all about God the best person to get that information is Jesus! He literally enlightened himself into a high conscious through living a certain life style. Just read the bible bro and you'll get the answers your'e looking for.

the way i see it is that our concepts of rewards and punishments and forgiveness for wrong doing are just our concepts and don't necessarily apply in god's world.. i'd think of that kind of forgiveness more like healing, but that's probably inaccurate as well.. but think of it like healing, your 'punishment' is to enter the afterworld in a state where you'll experience it as torture, and with the grace of god you might be healed of the sickness that'd have made you experience that torture.. it's as if you'd been warned about a bath of lemon juice you'll have to swim thru but you kept making small cuts on yourself, you can call the torture a punishment but it's probably not personal, it's just the consequences that you might have avoided (but then what's the lemon juice doing there in the first place? .. maybe it's like gravity, it's there to do one job but it can kill things as well).. maybe there are rules that had nothing to do with god.. if god's a person and is concerned about our world and us in particular it didn't necessarily have to be the thing that set it all up, and if it was that thing it's still not necessarily in control of every part of it, maybe the universe has run away with itself and god had to work out the rules so it could warn us about how to avoid the undesirable fate and have a good chance of having a good afterlife.. maybe god's just the loving aspect of an uncaring or even hostile universe, it mostly has it in for us but there's a part that doesn't want to see us in pain.. maybe belief in god is a requirement for bliss not because god wanted it that way but because, for example as a possibility, ego consciousness that we needed so we could get around in the world blinds us to god and traps us in a painful experience that we'd want to free ourselves from if we knew there was an alternative, and freedom from that way of being makes the experience of heaven possible for us but it's not necessarily forgiveness, might be more like protection.. not even that, more like wishing us well from a distance, leaving us hints we can't work out because it's all it can do.. maybe, who knows, we've wondered about these things probably for millions of years and haven't found any fully satisfactory answers yet, this is just how i make sense of it
