There are only about 10,000 days left in life. Will you still be hopeful? What is your hope then?

Sorry buddy. I wasn't actually asking what you would do, but like "what your hope is?" as the revised question shows.

Eh, my point was that 30 yrs is an entire lifetime where hopes will change many times.

Do you find that your last answer is actually a stuff of eternity? When you acknowledge that you will be die one day, then you hope your kids live even, I could say, longer than you. and so on... when it comes to them... it will be more longer and longer and longer. Do you know why people think about it in this way?

Solomon king of Israel said, God has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man. (Ecclesiastes 3:11-13)

if you're being a good/better father, does it mean God commands you to be? Or because of you ARE good, and then God commands you?

Neither But the interpretation of what you are trying to ask would be: Is it good to be a good father because god commands it, or does god command people to be good fathers because it's good?

Regardless...you never answered the question. You simply tried to circumvent it by changing its meaning and intention.

so my answer is, For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things (which included our "con&science" to know I SHOULD BE A GOOD FATHER) that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Romans 1:19-20)

Sorry if you think that way. but I can simply answer your question: you know or you have the responsibility to know that God commands you to be good in his own way.

So your answer then is that it is good because God commands it? So if god commands genocide (as he did with Joshua), then genocide is thus good and by extension Hitler was a good man for following that which was good according to god.

I'm not asking if he commands you to be good. I'm asking what makes it good. Is it good because god commands it, or does god command it because it is good (intrisically)?

Genocide is when you kill all of a group of people due to their race, religion, ethnicity, creed, or simply location.
