"i might take the god's identification of himself a bit too literal, could you give me some example of his identification that is a hyperbole and/or metaphor ?"
II Peter 3:8 comes to mind.
"does this sentence said, by producing evil....it outcomes good?"
I said "meditation on it for a while"...
"tibby and Sky1234 - without lies how would you know truth? Without poverty how would you know richness? Beyond perfection the closest word we have to describe what lies there is 'purity'. I've nicked these snippets from a good mate.""
I'd be ok with not being able to define truth if it was the cost of never having to hear a lie. I'd be just fine with never knowing richness, if that was the cost of never being poor. Without lies and poverty, all we would have is truth and richness.
Your right, we would never be able to define our existance (e.g. "know"
as "true and rich" because we would never see lies or proverty, but you know what? I'd be fine with that.
