Can You Remember The Last Time God Showed You Favor And Grace

    I'm not talking about the everyday blessings of him allowing you one more day, one more meal,one more closing of a business deal.I'm talking about that specific need,or seemingly dire situation that you with your limited vision could not see the solution.But our God in his infinate wisdom and omnipatence, already had the answer. You but only had to reach out to him in faith and he showed up.I experienced this today I saw a $4,000 tuition bill cut in half and from the looks of things it probably will be zero before all is said and done.I give all the Glory to my Father in Heaven, our Father in Heaven.I take no credit for myself except for the fact that I did as commanded and humbled myself and prayed, and did not doubt in my heart that he would provide. The Bible Says it is impossible to please God without faith. So please share your testimony, let's give God some praise and glory today.

      Just the fact that you think that some god allows you to live? Is beyond all rational thought and borders insanity. Just to let you know... hmm
      If your vision is limited, which you claim others to have apparently, then I would say yours is also very limited.
      Obvious your god likes uneducated, free thinking people. Now how inconsiderate is that? hmm
      Not true.
      And, what did you do? Nothing I presume. roll
      Excuse you, last time I checked, my father died, so please speak for yourself.
      Well dear sir, I really hate to disappoint you, but you cannot have 100% faith in anything you cannot prove is real. The human mind needs proof.
      You do realize that the "bible" was written by men who were dishonest? roll

        More personal attacks, give me your fintite definition of uneducated. This human mind,  over the course of it's lifetime has accumulated enough proof for me to reach out to others, and hope they experiance what I have. Have you ever read the Bible, you should try it, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

          It wasn't a personal attack. And even the thought that it was, says a lot about you. Nice vision you have....it's interesting how you keep to your religious faith.

          And, like I said before, speak only for yourself in your post.

          The use of "our" is false. It disgraces my father. So good day.

                  Thank you Earnest. He has been dead for half my life. It's just that the inclusion of this sick and demented religious garbage is getting to become a detriment to society at large.

                  If half these people understood their own religion, then they wouldn't have a belief in a god. That's the really sad part.

                I read through the replys to the Hub writers testimony. Please receive this response with an open mind. Yes the Bible was written by men, however it was inspired by God. Yes, there were thieves in  Christianity but God saw the God in them and they willingly changed their ways because they learned there was a better way to live and die. The responses to your opinions could go for an infinite length of time but I can not entertain that nor try to convenience you that your thinking may cause you to loose something you truly desire. No one can change your mind but you.

                For my testimony, I had been diagnosed with a deadly disease. The doctors told me they could not correct the damage done in my body.  Today, ten years later, I am in perfect health. The traces of the diease is still in my body but it is dormant. The only way I am living with the illness is through God's grace. Not through medication. I prayed when I leanred of the illness and God kept His promise to me. He did not allow the illness to kill me nor degrade the quality of my life. I give Him the glory. I do not need others to tell me there is a God or not a God.This is not ignorance, its faith and trust in God's powers.

                  And it is based on your pre-determined belief in a sky fairy.

                  Funny you should mention how you survived through your beliefs. I Survived a disease with near impossible odds 15 years ago by believing in my doctor and myself.

                  My religious mate told me I was mad to put myself in the hands of a hospital and doctors.

                  10 years later he got sick, left it to "god" and was dead in 6 weeks. smile

                  His family just switched from "god will save you" to "he was called"
                  What a crock! Totally dishonest.

            Cags, I'm sorry about your dad. I lost mine 9 years ago when he shot himself, and I still think about him every day. I lost my mom to Alzheimer's 2 years ago, and that experience was even more traumatic, believe it or not. Is your mom still living? When Mom died, I felt like an orphan, even though I was 50 years old.

              Yes, my mother is still living. She is 63 years old, with COPD and osteo(beginning stages), and emphazeyma(sp?). She won't be around much longer, at the rate she is going. Her outlook is getting worse, because in the last 5 years, my family has suffer the loss of my aunt and grandmother(her sister and mother), and my grandmother's boyfriend of 30 years(he was like a grandfather to me(I never knew any of my grandfather's(all died before I was born).

              habee, so sorry to hear of your loss.  I too lost both parents. Mom suddenly, and dad to kidney failure. As an only child, I, too, feel like an orphan and I am 47.
              No one can possibly know this feeling unless they go through it. Moms mom, died 2 years before she did, and mom grieved so bad. Her joy was gone. My son, also an only child, lost his best friend. But as a mom, I knew I could not allow myself to grieve to the point mom did, My son, was 10 at the time. And when dad passed, I felt the orphan feeling. A feeling without description.
              My grandmother died 2001, mom 2003, dad 2005, papah 2006 and my uncle 2007. My entire physical family foundation had been broken.
              Family was all I have ever known. And God.
              It takes a bit of inner strength to get through these times. When mom passed, I felt so empty. A month went by and everything I did seemed futile. I just and almost in disgust said ok God, I need you, I need strength and I need peace...........Growing up all I knew was family and business. I did not get close to many people. Didn't have the extra time to devote to a friendship. No, I'm not cold hearted, just honest. Long story short, I asked. I received. I know that I know that I know, He gave me the peace and the strength I had to have to get through this and to take care of dad, as his condition was worsening and to be everything my son needed me to be. At 10, all he had was me and a papah who at times, appeared to him, the same age as he was. The poison from kidney failure has the same side effects as does alhezimers (I know i didn't spell that right). But the strength and peace did come.
              Dad's passing was a bit different. How could there be a God? How could God make someone suffer so much, How could He hurt an innocent child like that? On the way to bury dad, I got in Gods face. You can't exist. All this time in trusting., is just useless. .............................
              About a month before dad passed, I was going through a situation that I had asked God to help me see through or to help me to put into perspective. After we buried dad, I left and went to a family get together, food and all, then I was going home. I stopped at the store, and to my surprise, and in a way only I would KNOW, God showed up.   Situation solved. Peace and strength returned.
              My son and I are ok now. We will always miss mom/dad, grans/paw.
              I don't have all the answers to lifes mysteries, but I know that I know that I know He does exist.,
              Cagsil, sorry to hear of you moms illness and the pain you are gong through.  Mom had COPD as well. She turned 63 the day before she passed. Spend as much time with your mom as you can.
              I know there are those that understand as well as those that will dismiss my experience with the Higher Power. But I have been on both sides of the fence. I know in my gut and my heart the agony and the peace.
              I was raised to believe. I turned my back at a time I couldn't possibly hurt any worse inside than what I was.
              Peace, inner strength. Its there. He has it to offer. Asking, that's the easy part. Asking from the heart,  believing and receiving is the key. He knows our needs and is setting on ready to meet them. But, He has to be asked.

        I agree with ya and am keeping the most private ones private.


           But  when I was YOUNG and crazzy !!!!
           
           I could give so many testimonials everyone would think I was making them up.

            I've heard it said that God  protects old folks, children and fools.
           I've always been covered on two counts. 
           And looking back on it now, I keept him pretty busy.
           
          I'll tell one of the most extreme case . 
          I was driving down an unfamiliar road one night when I was a teenager. Three of us in the car. The gas pedal on all of my cars had only one position. Peddle to the middle. And I loved taking curves fast.

           I came around a curve and saw a rock wall and a stop sign.
        Glanced at the speedometer, 75 MPH  and not enough time to stop.
        Don't know why ?  wasn't anything else to do I guess, so A spun the steering wheel and put the gas peddle on the floor.

            The next thing I remember I was parked on the side of the road.

           We went back the next day to see that intersection in daylight.

          We all agreed there was no way we could have took that intersection at 75 MPH pluss

           While remembering this story tonight, I barely believe it and I saw it happen.

      well god works in mysterious ways. maybe he helped you.  maybe he didn't.  the point is we'll never know.  i'd like to believe that god doesn't necessarily favor one person over the other, or grant personal favors to an individual.  after all, what makes any one of our lives more important over the other?  no, i truly believe he helps gives us the strength to go on, when all hope seems lost.  he gives us the courage, when all we feel is fear.  that is what god does.  i don't think he does things specifically these days like making you win the lottery or get a tuition.  at least not these days, as i think god doesn't like to directly get involved in those things. of course, i could be totally wrong, but that's what i believe.

      sorry, no testimony other than Im still alive. The "Christian" God did not kill me yet.

      I've seen good people suffer and die. Ive seen people work hard and never get ahead. People who "believe" with all their hearts and yet thier baby dies. Homeless children and mentaly ill people beaten and abused. Ive seen young girls be made into prostitutes. There is theft and murder, and all sorts of evil every single day and I feel sick when people say "thank God I found a parking spot so close." I have a friend who was raped repeatedly by a neighbour, then a relative, starting at the age of 7, for three years. No one, not even her mother, helped. I've lost a baby, a father, brother in law, and niece far to early. Where was God then? why does he pick and choose?


      Ive seen money I needed arrive just in time, but there was a man who handed it to me without question. Do I say God did it, or thank the man who gave it to me?

      Lets pretend God really did make that man give me money? I would rather starve, than have a God who ignores the suffering of innocent babies worldwide give me money.

      hello Troy.

      having endured more pain, suffering and fear than any small child should have to endure even though i prayed to God for help, or just answers, i find it difficult to believe God would ignore the pleas of a frightened child yet help an adult with tuition expenses.

      to answer your question, i do think God is just there and he is all just pure love ...a glowing sparkling entity like stars and his just being there comforts you while you make your own way and find your own answers. i mean no disrespect. i just can't fathom a god who ignores starving children in Africa while he gets people out of traffic jams or something.

      Considering you offered no explanation whatsoever as to how this miracle occurred, it is what you want to believe as opposed to what actually occurred and who was involved.

      WOW...God is an Awsome God. 
      I remember so many times...so many moments...so many needs met when all seemed hopeless, helpless, over.  I have lived a very unconventional life and God has his hands full with this daughter to say the least. 
      Ok...Becky Jo...Pick one...OK, here goes.
      I decided to stop...to just sit.  I am a tramp by nature. By tramp I do not mean lady type tramp, I mean traveling tramp.  I love the open road.  Thumb out, anticipating the next ride...(Scarey moment...Ok, yes that was my out loud typing...I know God has my back so I'll just go with it. Sometimes it is hard to do self disclosure). So...I was stopping. 
      Ontario, California.  A favorite spot for catching rides in 18 wheelers going to where ever!  I was offered so many rides and yet something just kept me still.  I called a local homeless type resourse and after some scarey self disclosure was told I could come in and get a voucher for a hotel for up to 1 month. (Salvation Army) I put that on the back burner because I really did not want to end up in Ontario.  It is a lot different than my hometown of San Diego! 
      A bit later a Christian trucker gave me bus fare to go home to San Diego.  (NOT a good choice but one I was in self will about).  As I was riding the local bus to the greyhound station I noticed the street names and they looked familiar.  I was in the near the Salvation Army. I got off the bus and walked 20s blocks to the Salvation Army. 
      They knew who I was and had me sit for a couple hours.  Not something I would do, yet I sat still, praying.  The tugging at my heart in full force.  I forgot to mention that I truly had NOTHING.  Just the clothes on my back and bus fare. 
      After waiting, I finally saw the woman in charge of vouchers. (For the record, they were OUT of money for vouchers.)  She gave me a voucher, food, clothing and a phone card and they drove me to the hotel.
      At the hotel I met some folks.  Some good, some not so good.  MANY temptations. 
      Today, I sit in the same hotel...4 months later...on my own computer, in a room with a fellow Christian who has means to pay for the room, in love with The Lord and free to be safe, me, sitting still, taking classes, moving ahead in God's Light!
      God Bless...Becky Jo

      Just a simple  "Lord Please Help me" and a look up in the sky.

      The phone rings about 15 minutes later.  The person on the phone says Are you Jerami ------ that worked on my house two years ago, I said maybe, I do that kind of work for a living. 

      He said,  good I've been calling every Jerami ---- in the book.  I want you to come to my house and do such and such.

            And, like I said before, if half of the people who claim to understand the bible, actually did understand Jesus' teachings, then they would not have a belief in a god.

            God of the bible- is metaphorical parable- it means self master.

            Nothing more, nothing less. It's not some imaginary being. It is YOU being GOD in your own damn life. Master of self.

            But, you cannot see it, because you take other people's word for it.

            So, you're lost not me.

              Em, how can anyone be master of their own life, when they cannot --within their own selves, their brains --conceive [let alone give birth] to anything without universal influence, interference and interaction?

              Certainly, a diluted version of truth can be understood by the choice mind (that is called equation/sensation), but it can only go so far: death. So where is the value or supremacy in mastering self if there is no 'higher purpose or being' humans must answer to...

              I wholeheartedly agree, the book worshiped by many is not the answer, but certainly you are not realistically suggesting the individual is beyond the metaphor, while still indulging the ever constant necessity...

              EDIT:

              ...as we also agree the concept of G/god is self implied. because it is falsehood; slavery --as the translated word states: ba`al --the overlord, the master of consequence. This, you know is what the word G/god means...

    I have 2 hubs about my experiences with God.  His help and answering prayers.  Those happened quite a few years back.

    December 19 2009
    I was driving down a steep hill shortly after it began snowing.
    I had driven in snow many times, but I didn't notice this snow was different.  At the bottom of the hill is a stop sign.  My car didn't stop.  Directly in front of me, across the road was 2 trees.  Along that side of the road was a field.  From the side of the road to the field was a drop off, about the length of my car.  My car turned, and went down the drop off at an angle that kept my car from turning over.
    If my car hadn't taken the exact path it did, my car would have been totaled and I would have been injured.  The only damage to my car, a barb wire fence, it needed a paint job.

    Jesus kept me safe.

    God gave me favor and grace when my bills were seriously past due.

The bill collector didn't argue or give me a hard time as usual. She only said yes, and gave me 2 weeks in all. This is no coincidence. Normally this does not happen. I knew without a doubt that this was supernatural favor from God, and nobody can tell me differently. I praise God as I continue to recieve his favor in other ways.

        getitrite, God cannot make anyone believe in him, that's your choice. We did not come into existence  because of our mother and father. We came into existence because allowed us to, and he is the great creator of all things. God has provided more than enough food and other natural resources so that no one needs to go hungry and be deprived of other basic needs. The world can produce enough food to feed it's expanding population. Most starvation today could be avoided if it were not for people selfishness and inhumanity. While innocent children starve, some rich nations destroy millions of tons of food in order to keep prices artifically high. God is not the one to blame for poor, starving, and dying children. The sinful ways of some people are the one to blame.

          So let me get this straight.  A God, who is all powerful, has no power to intervene on behalf of these poor, pitiful, dying children, because He can't usurp free-will, however, He can intervene on your behalf, and show you favor.

          I'm sorry, that just isn't moral or sensible.

          In fact, it is beyond callous.  God seems to have a brutally merciless attitude toward people He should surely help.

          I'm going to pray that God stops helping me and others, until He does something about the starving children.  Maybe then He'll do something.

            You need to check out the average population growth through out the centuries. 
                Doesn't matter if wars are going on, a plague knocks off 1/3 to 1/2 the population; the population growth stays the same. 

              that means the rate of death has stayed the same whether they are getting killed in war, civil disorder, disease or starvation.

               When more people dies of other causes fewer people starve. 

               1.1 % growth rate through out the ages.  ???
               That seems to be the rule.  Break the rule ?  more hungry people.
               after WWII  that rate og growth increased for almost 4 decades.
               

              That sounds cold hearted I don't understand or approve!

              He can't help the starving children because He is not REAL.

        Cagsil,no it was God.It was a closeness I can never really explain,but  I wrote a hub about it trying to . I  see what you are saying about conscience, but where I differ with you is that I feel God gave me this conscience. You certainly have every right to your take on it, we both have our own beliefs.

        I'm 61 and started my path at 16. Never turned back, and never wanted to. You are probably like me...no person is going to change my mind after all these years. I respect you as a fellow hubber ,a good writer, and you are awesome in the helping new hubbers forums.You have helped me, and been very kind. I want your respect as well. I like to be nice to people, you know...not rock the boat.So I started not to respond.Started not to......and probably will wish by morning light that I'd not...

        But...I just read some of your other comments on this thread.(at first I thought it was just me.) So I see this Cagsil person that I thought was so kind and helpful is ...I can't even think of a word....I guess because noone knows your heart......But if what we are saying about OUR God bothers you, why be on this thread? I mean, why unless it is to mock?Why tell me  and others it wasn't God?  Surely you don't think you can change our minds.Not mine, and I suspect not anyone elses.

        Cagsil,It just really seems disrespectful to me.I just don't see why you are doing this........ Why mock?  I just wanted to say yes in answer to a question in a Christian forum. Didn't realize that nonbelievers would be here. Free speech and all that I respect, but unkindness is another thing all together. I hope that you don't find my response to you to be so. In fact, I invite you to personally email me if what I am writing here was unkind to you.

        Anyway....I'm an old lady..mind your manners young man! LOL!  but really.... I don't go on the atheist thread and rant that you and others don't believe, because I respect you right to your beliefs.

        I also see that you don't comment to some of the popular hubbers on this thread that left comments in this thread. (I have been here 2 months) (habee I luv you!)

      bayoulady, I remember one time in my life, that i was seriously thinking about committing suicide. I was scared because I didn't want to do it. I felt desperate, so I called out to God to help me. I cried telling God that I don't want to live one more day in this deep state of depression. He heard my cry and came to my rescue. I felt his powerful nearness beside me, and instantly I felt lighter than ever before, and the depression was gone! I won't ever forget it, so I can truly relate to your testimony. If i had not reach out to God. I would have have ended my life.

        Cags, Earlier in this thread you crabbed about someone "speaking on your behalf" when he said "our father". Now you are telling another hubber to not credit who she wants to. Can't make up your mind, can you? Only what you believe is ok it seems.

        It infuriates me how some people who claim religion bullies the masses can't see they are using the very tools they rage against.

        No doubt you will attempt to discredit me for standing up in this thread. I am afterall one of those christians you laugh at. Maybe if you and others like you opted to make the mature choice to pass by a thread  once in a while, there would be a modicum of peace in the religion forum. All that self awareness and personal responsibility talk should be able to produce maturity.

          Okay, then that person is a liar, if they want to give credit for what their parents did to a god.

          I said, give credit to their parents and not some fictional god.

          The people who did the HARD WORK of raising them, gets credit.

          And, anyone, and I mean anyone, who gives credit for what their parents do away to someone or something else, is not only dishonoring their parents, but an out-right liar.

            That is your opinion. You do realize you early in the thread you raged someone said"our father", now you rage tht someone credits God for the blessing of their parents. You flat out appear to rage unless the poster THINKS EXACTLY LIKE YOU. Appears prima donna like, or tempramental. Why can't you simply tolerate other people thinking differently than yourself? Why can't you muster the self awareness/self knowledge to make that mature choice?
            By the way, just because you disagree with the poster as to who is to be credited does NOT make her a liar. Get real please.

      Poor choice Earnst. Too ask "When is the last time you robbed a bank ( or any other illegal activity)?" would be wrong. This is not an "illegal activity" thread. If the thread was titled "When is the last time you read a good book? Or when is the last time you walked through an orchard? - you would not even respond. But because it is by a christian on christin living, the few vocal nonbelievers are distressed the thread is even in existence.

      Now spew the crap about how you are doing society a favor by mocking faith. Oh, better yet, twitch and quote scripture. Demand proof! Better yet - evolve and display maturity.

    You know H.A., "our father" is a generalization classifying everyone that that person is talking to and to do that in a forum thread, which is public I might add, is not correct, right or fair, to others.

    I get you have problem with my action, and I'm fine with that, last night I was tired, irritated and sick of people lying to the point I let it out.

    Just do me and every one of the non-believers- try not to use an inclusive word or say it different- like to believers "our" father.

    My father was a good man. He was a wise man. He wasn't too bright in the smarts department, but was still my father and I understand the respect that is demanded.

      Why do you feel your father is on trial here? I am sure he was a good man. The poster made no comment that your father was different or anything. Nor did the poster tell you you could not think how ever you wanted to.

      You are aware that you generalize on public forums in the same manner right? You simply state the opposing view to the one you are objecting to. Get it?

      What you did was get hypersensitive and vocal that what anyone else thinks is wrong. If someone thinks differently than you - you call them liars and delussional, irrational. Disagreeing with you is not a sin, is it?

        The inclusion used by religious folk with regards to "our" father is dishonoring my father, his life and what he meant to me. My father was MY and my Sister's father. And, no one else. Get it?
        Yeah, I get it, but what you fail to realize- rational versus irrational. Truth versus emotional belief. Difference.
        Lying is a sin.. isn't it? Nice to know where your priorities stand. Good know in future communications.

        You claim to understand your own religious view? It's not truth.

        You claim to understand your own life, via your religious view? It's not truth.

        Both are sins according to your own religious teachings. It is not a matter of disagreeing with me. It's a matter of understanding knowledge and wisdom of life. Which religious people fail to do, because they don't think for themselves and have no understanding of wisdom, even from what they supposedly learned throughout their life.

        To be religious with regards to a god, is in fact, the lowest level of any form of consciousness behavior. Thus, in the end, cannot tell between what is real and what is fake.

    well i think i am slowly understanding what Christians mean by free will. Man has free will and as such, conducts his affairs without divine intervention, good or evil.

    i just bristle when people act as if they are in an elite club or have the inside track to God and you don't and because they do, he helps them get out if snowdrifts or with financial issues.

    God is there though, at the end of life, and he embraces all in a giant warm celestial hug and you forgive everything and you have a divine understanding of things and there is no malice in your heart; only love.

      I think I know what you mean. At the risk of being labeled crazy, I do believe there is "something" else. I can't stand organized religion, I hate being prayed for, I have never had a prayer answered, other than "no"... but I HAVE had, and have seen,  wondrous amazing 'miracle-like' things happen. I fully believe in free will and I do not think the majority of Christians I have met are even close to understanding it. i think, somebody ..God, gods, Godess, Buddha, aliens, Jesus, karma...something.. is out there. I do not think prayers are answered, at all. Good and evil exist by our own hands.. free will.

      My husband had an aunt who was disabled.  She started living with her drug addicted daughter.   She would give her daughter money to go pay the bills.
      She would be gone all day, come home broke, the bills not paid.  Of course the mother would be upset and fuss at her daughter.  Then one night the daughter screamed at her saying, "I would rather go to hell than to take care of you!"  The daughter died that night.

                now, see....this is something i don't understand. why would God strike down someone for speaking a wish out loud yet NOT intervene in cases like BabyP's, who was horrifically abused FROM BIRTH? or Adam Walsh, who was sexually molested and decapitated, his severed head dumped in a ditch? why would God ignore Adam's or BabyP's cries? is it because they didn't phrase them in the form of a prayer?

                i don't think God is like that - vengeful and vindictive. when humans do things like that, we call them petty and nasty.

    and you can't even convince anyone who can think and make decisions for themselves either.
    You are flogging a hate filled book written 2,000 years ago that is mostly missing and promotes a murdering psychopath.
    The bible is massed with the hate, fear, loathing, fear, insecurity of this little entity that is so insecure he gets his followers to murder people who don't follow "him"

    This is insanity plain and simple, or religionists are ill-informed and have never read their own book!

            Why don't you answer one of the questions asked or reply to what your god said in the bible instead of pointing out what we all do if we have been here a while. So what's your point again?

            I say the biblical god is a psychopath then prove it beyond doubt using your bible as evidence and you all ignore it.

            Now why would that be? It's not sane or normal behaviour in a discussion to ignore what has been said and not address it with more than "The bible sez" from somewhere else and contradictory.

            The bible sez whatever you want it to say and the number of religions that follow the same book is proof of that statement too.

            Haven't you noticed how many christians on this thread have told you to believe what you want to? Has it escaped you that they have treated you with civility? The hate doesn't come from them.

Even when you are treated just like anyone else by christians, you act as though you are second class.

                    I have not "showed you the word" nor told you "the errors of your ways". This imagination of yours is not a good thing. I think it actually may be a sign you need mental help.

                   If no one was starving to death there would have to be more people dieing at war or from disease.

          What sort of god would require a belief in it before it would save a life?
          What a pathetic little god that would be.

          Think about it for a minute folks! Humans hit a golf ball in to a hole not much bigger than it from hundreds of yards away.

          People who have taken huge risks in their life have had many experiences that were very lucky indeed.

          I never felt the urge to attribute this to an invisible entity even if Tiger Wood does. (HE must be smart, he's a celebrity!) smile

          Why do you? I believe it is indoctrination.
          I cannot otherwise explain how you could not see how "human" your little god is otherwise.

          It is in your own comment, yet you always miss it. Why is that again? smile

                I would back out of his life until he decided to come to me.
                Is that hard hearted, or egotistical?  I would just be giving him his wish.

    I remember one time in particular when I was just becoming a follwer of our Lord Jesus. God will use the smallest things to show you he is in control and that he loves us. When I was a truck driver in Florida I was running late to a very important appt. I got stuck behind a convoy of RV's driving very slow. My friend asked me just a few days before to start giving in to God and let him into my life. So as I was driving along and still running late for this appt I gave it up to Jesus and started praying and asking for favor to get me to this appointment on time. Just as I was asking for favor the convoy of RV's pulled over to the side of the rode. Every single one of them pulled over. I really felt God's presence there with me. God is good and has been in my life ever since.

If a magic pill existed that could make man do to man as man should, then Adam walsh would have been born into a  different civilization. To be civil. A magic pill that could make us do as we should, instead of as we WILL. Hmmm Of course, no pill exists, nor should we resort to artificial means to MAKE us be CIVIL! And neither should we leave to God, wether God exists or not   , to save us from our own cruelties to each other. It has ALWAYS been up to us. Wake up and smell the JAVA!

        yes He is. i believe that.

        i accept that God allows Man to conduct his own affairs and every one of us must answer for our transgressions, either on earth (karma) or in the afterlife, although i don't believe in Heaven and Hell.

        what i don't accept is God putting money in people's bank accounts and getting them safely to their destination, or letitng their team win the Super Bowl, that sort of thing. if He does all those things while allowing babies to be smashed in their cribs, He's got some priorities that are seriously out of whack, don't you think so?




        hello Troy. i have. lots. i used to be a faithful practitioner of the Catholic faith. even so, i was never comfortable with the vengeful Christian god, especially where children were concerned (slaughter of The Innocents, etc.).









        well, actually i get the 'bad things happening to good people' part - free will, right? which means that God gave Man free will to do with his planet and each other as he sees fit, since they forfeited divine protection when they disobeyed God. God said 'well, ok, if you wanna disobey me, that's cool, but then you can go live on your own and make your own way' and he barred the gates to Paradise forever. that might even explain why He doesn't intervene when children get murdered. see, if any imperfect, puny humans were walking down the street and encountered someone killing a small child, i know any one of us would risk life and limb to save that child. you know that is so. let's say we accept that God doesn't intervene, because he gave Man free will.

        so.............why would he intervene in 'positive' ways like giving people money or clearing traffic jams? either there IS divine intervention or their isn't. you can't say God doesn't intervene because of Original Sin AND say God intervened and gave you four thousand dollars, see? thanks for the offer, WOC, but i think the forum is enough of a venue to discuss topics as far as i am concerned. smile





        i don't know about BZD, but i don't blame God at all for anything. i just think saying God ignores dying children while finding people's car keys makes Him look bad.



        well, i tried, but that was too deep for me. neutral smile




        hmm i don't want to make God responsible for anything. what i have trouble with are people making God responsible for that extra money in their bank account while He allegedly lets other people starve or lets babies get their heads smashed into walls by their drug-crazed parents.

          If you are living by YOUR will, then God will not intervene.

          If you are living by HIS will, then you are under His protection, as you have given Him your authority, and surrendered your will to His, and He will intervene.

          All mankind is born into Satan's kingdom, and lives under the authority it was born into UNTIL they make their personal decision concerning whose authority they will live under.

          If our parents were practising Christians, then we would still be born into Satan's kingdom, but our parental authority, being submitted to Christ, would protect us until we reach our own decision.

          Between us and God there lies Satan, and until and unless you reject his kingdom and ask to live in Gods kingdom, you are stuck with this world and it's problems and how they affect you.

          There are layers of authority.

          In the 'heavenlies' there are spiritual forces, on both sides, battling constantly, Gods forces restraining Satan's forces. Who seek to destroy all that they can.

          Below them in the temporal plain there are nations, kings, governments and civil authorities, all of which influence how we live, and who have chosen which authority (Satan or God) that they will submit to.

          If you have a corrupt authority over you, you will suffer.

          But you will suffer less (i.e. be protected) if your relationship with Christ is a strong one, and the stronger it is, the more you are protected.

          You can work out for yourself that a child born into a country where the Government are corrupt and under Satanic control, will have little protection against Satan's desire to kill.

              This question has been asked even into biblical times. "Why do the wicked prosper?" "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Consider this, perhaps you don't need to know the answer to live your life. Perhaps you aren't meant to know. For example let me ask. How can a 13'6" rig safely pass under a 12'6" overpass in NYC? What's the Lowest gear to safely descend a 9% grade on Highway 33 through West VIrginia? What's the easiest way to free a frozen trailer brakeline in below zero temperatures? The point is you wouldn't know unless they were relevent to your life. God gives us the wisdom we need to live by. If we need to know something he will reveal it. Faith is the key.

      Baby P would be alive today if his degenerate carers had been taught morals and disciplined by their parents, as it is 'we' have produced a whole nation of selfish iniquitous folk who do despicable things and then blame God for not stopping them.

      Get real, if God was still welcome in the world, most of this stuff would stop happening, as it is the world is welcoming Satan, in words, thoughts and deeds, so blame the right entity.

      Cosette, why the meanness? You don't think those issues make Christians feel sick also? Likewise, that someone is appreciated because they feel that some "grace" happened in their life does not equal they think they are better or more deserving than any one else. It's called "Grace" because it means receiving something one did not have right to expect or deserve.

      I don't know why God allowed my mom's father, my grandfather I never met, to be beaten and murdered in front of her at six years old and she had to flee for her life and live in the woods and live a harsh life for many years. Ironically, this was done by the people out to "save everybody" from the harm and oppression of religion, capitalism, etc.

      Yet she has come to believe and sense God in her life, at least now . . . so you want to knock her down and save her from the harm and oppression of religion again?

      Fact . . . Fact . . . can not be disputed by a rational, decent carbon based human life form . . . the issue of why God "allows" evil to happen and "intervenes" here vs. there as well as if there is or is not a God and in either case, where did everything just "pop" out from - even the dust and space itself has to have a source somewhere and that source somewhere, etc. etc. . . . these have been debated for ages by much more intelligent people than anyone here.

      Newton (2nd greatest scientist after Einstein, who's shoulder's Einstein and every physicist stand's on - Newton's the father of physicist). So he's idiot?

      Pascal (father of calculus) - devoted Christian. Idiot also, you say so?

      There's many examples and as is you darn well know I am right that the issues you commenting have been discussed and unsolved for ages . . . but you've solved it. There's no God (as if that's never come up before?)

      So really you and others here are going to solve the issue for everybody . now who's being arrogant?

      The Christian are not saying the issues are solved . . . they are testifying for themselves on what they sense [or do you speak for them now also, again, who's being arrogant] and would recognize that's why its grace and faith because its not clear cut ... but you made it clearcut?

      What pain are hiding something Cosette that you are so bitter? Instead of hiding behind baby p and Adam Walsh (I'm sure John Walsh can take up his issues regarding God himself), what is it that you are so angry that people would actually have a positive experience or sense in God that you along with obvious others need to enter a thread that you know you won't like, but you do so because you want to attack and belittle those on it?

      p.s. Before you go put your foot in your mouth. I have not made a single statement about what I personally believe about God or not. I, unlike you, cagil, the other militant on here, recognize there are good, decent people who do believe in God and if they want to have a thread to share experiences they believe . . . I believe they ought to be able to without others coming in clearly with the intention to mock and belittle them. I believe Muslims ought to have that courtesy. Buddhists, Hindus, athiests/agnostics (have a thread of "coincidences" if it means so much to you), etc.

        i find it really odd that NO ONE finds it strange that God intervenes to help someone out of a traffic jam or gives them money but lets children starve, get molested and beaten to bloody pulps.

        i believe there is a divine, wonderful, amazing spiritual force out there in, around and above the cosmos but you only meet it when you die and it cradles you in its celestial arms and you feel bliss that you have never felt before on any eartly plane and when you are in that embrace you understand everything and forgive all wrongs and i especially believe this of children who have suffered the worst that Man has to offer. this entity does not intervene in Man's affairs in any way. why would it? why WOULD it say 'hmm imma send Joe some money because he has faith in me, and that little kid being savaged by a child predator is going to endure the terror of it before being stabbed to death even as he cries for his mother and father and i will do nothing because he does not have faith'.

        people say 'praise God' and 'i'm favored and you're not, nah nah nah nah nah.....' really annoy me, if you want to know the truth. if you believe that, then accept it quietly and don't lord it over the children of a lesser god. you don't think THAT'S arrogant? how is my asking these questions arrogance? i have gotten that same response all my life to my questions.

          cosette, I am so sorry about the horrible things you been through as a child. It's also grieves my spirit when i hear of the cruel things that is inflicted on children or anyone. I have also suffered mistreatment and emotional pain all my life, and I often ask why. When God created this world, he made it perfect. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and brought sin into this world. Because of this, we all have to suffer. It was never in God's plan for none of us to suffer. I read and studied the bible, and that's where I got the answers. God does not always answer any of our prayers with a yes. Look at what Jesus been through. He was beaten so bad by evil people that his face was unrecognizable. Jesus was a innocent man, and he did not do any harm to anyone. There is more depth  to your question that i can share with you. If you prefer, I can send you more details to your email about why God does not stop some of the evil works done here on earth.

    =============================================================


    Who told you that statement is true?
    That must be your interpretation?

      I don't recall hearing that Abraham, ISSAC, or Jacob read the book. Many of the Priestly prophets did read their scriptures that they had at the time. But they didn't read "THE Book"

      If God showed favor before "The Book" was written, I don't think that is a requirement today.

      "The Book" is the only introduction that most people have today.
      After the introduction has been made and a relationship is established ???  You are in good shape regardless of your situation.

        Any "Miracles" or blessings are simply affirmations.

       Some people don't need these to maintain their faith.
       Some people aren't going to accept them as such, even if they received one a day.

       Some people "WORSHIP" life too much to see past the end of their nose.
       Some people are going to complain no matter how much they have. 
       Some people are content with nothing.
       Maybe they are content with nothing as an example for the rest of us.   
       Sometimes death at an early age can be a blessing compared to living a long life that they would have had.

       We just don't know what we don't know.

But God in his mercy did not kill Adam as he said he would. He just banished them from paradise. Man with his free will messed it all up so we all must suffer the consequences, and that means starving children, political unrest, genocide, suicide and many more things that are wrong with this world.

The unbelievers mocked and mocked Noah words exactly like some of the people that is posting on this forum. When the doors of the ark closed shut, and God's word came to pass, the same people that were mocking were pleading to get in. God said next time it will be fire, and his words is true, and always come to pass.

      He might have put it in someones heart to bring food to my table or give me the oppertunity to work and buy whatever I might consider to be a blessing.
      He has provided me with an opertunity to do that for myself and I then passed on that blessing that I am able

       It is about people passing on their blessings all that they are capable.

       I will temporarily leave God out of a little story.

      Lets assume that mankind does not destroy itself.
      And Evolves as some people believe that it will.
      Science cures all diseases.
      Science finds a way to feed everyone more than sufficiently.
      Everyone is HAPPY.  Child birth continues  Death is defeated.

      Mankind evolves spiritually to levels undreamed of.
      Life on earth becomes so crowded there is no place to lay our heads (exaggerated)

       Mankind is so mentally advanced that we create conditions on another planet such that it can sustain life.
      We know that if we inhabit that place, that it will soon be filled to capacity, seeing as there isn't any form of death. And life just wouldn't be the same without Little Babies.
       
       It would be perfect if we could transfer our spiritual selves
    into a new baby, experience life and death. When that physical body dies our spirit returns to our original planet of origin.

       I think that Mankind with the help of science can achieve these things. If we give ourselves long enough by not blowing ourselves up first.
       

      I think that this concept might make a good book.

    i think what a lot of people are responding negatively to is the word "favor", which implies that the Almighty favors some and not others. we are all God's children, isn't that right? i only have one child but if i had several, i would love them all equally, even the ones who misbehaved, and i wouldn't shun one because he or she devaited from my teachings - that's absurd.

    i don't have a problem with the word 'grace' though...i think God does have grace but it is in everything and everyone can be covered in it whether they seek it or not.

    oh, and to answer the original question (hypothetically), the last time God showed me grace was when he gave me my son. i truly felt that he was a gift and i cherish him. but i don't think of it in the same way as Christians do - i think of it in the sense that we are all connected and when we have children they come from the stars (they say we are stardust, you know) and i believed with all my heart when i looked at him lying there all new that that was God's way of saying he was sorry for what i endured as a child. strange, i know. but that's that grace thing we're talking about...

      God does love all equally, and indeed wants to bless all humanity, but those who reject Him cannot be favoured.

      The still receive His Grace (unwarranted mercy) despite the fact that they rebel against Him.

      If God withdrew His Grace, then Satan would have free reign over them, but for now,they have some protection.

      But if one of your children refused to accept you as their parent, left home, never spoke of you except to pour abuse and scorn upon you in public, harassed your other children for loving you, told the world that you had never existed, and denied that you loved them.... you would still love them, but unless they allowed you to do so, you could not help them in any direct fashion.

          Hi Cosette,

          I said COULD not deliberately.

          Could, should and would are very close words with differing meaning. I meant could not, because from experience I have found that no matter my unconditional love for someone, when they close you out, they refuse all and anything you want to give them. You are unable to help them unless you FORCE them to do your will, and God does not force his children to do His will, it's voluntary or not at all.

          Fortunately not experienced with my children, but with many folk who I have tried to minister to over the years.

      Hi Cosette, God promises supernatural favor to all of his obedient children. The amazing facts are in the bible, and the bible is clear that all people are God's creation, but spiritual birth makes someone a child of God. When we all were born, we were not born as God's children. We are born in sin, which seperates us from God, and sin connects to Satan who is God's enemy. In order to be a child of God, you have to be born again, which is a spiritual birth. We become children of God when we are saved because we are adopted into God's family through a relationship with Jesus Christ. The scripture in the bible is clear that God formed man of the dust of the ground.  Genesis 2:7. It's not about what they say. Children are not made of stardust from the stars. Cosette, I am here to help anyone that desires to be. Cosette, do you believe the bible is true? If so , I can give you more scriptures to back up every word that is in this message, and they are not lies, because the bible is true. Satan, the devil is the father of every lie.

That is why I advised against reading their lies because the subconscios mind can't  discern right from wrong or good from evil.

                    One thing lacking? I can't even satisfy a few toddlers, who by the way will write a book each on what I am lacking and at the drop of a hat. smile

                    I have a solid grounding in the areas I deal with including having experienced the born again bonanza of inflated self worth through indoctrination.
                    I am capable of changing my beliefs at any time, but I do understand the bible far too well to become a religionist of any flavour.

                    I don't like the psychotic projections from megalomaniacs onto non believers you see. smile

          When I say minister, I am not meaning a paid minister as you may understand it.

          Believers, when they come to understand, know that we need to 'minister' to the needs of others.

          We are always in every situation to either bless another, or receive a blessing from them. i.e. everyone we meet will either need help or be able to offer help to us.

          I 'work' for Christ and God, and they do send my provisioning, but not from any congregation or TV show! - I have lived by faith for the last 17 years, and if I am busy about 'my Fathers work' then I find that resources are always available to support me, if I am not busy, then I return to my 'tentmaking' (See Paul)and normal 'work' just happens.

          Scripture tells us that the riches of the 'wicked' are stored for our provision, and that's true, God sends believers who work for Him, to folk who provide income!

          As for Satan, forget the name you id him with, after all he has spent the last few thousand years trying to get humanity to deny he exists.... you accept that there is good and evil, darkness and light, well then we are on the same route,just using different maps.

          Most folk will agree that there is a 'higher power' (and by default a 'lower power', but baulk at the conclusion that if this is true, then there must be a highest power and lowest power.... in my research I have identified those powers as God, the highest power, and Satan, the lowest power.

          I've worked for both of them, and believe me God is a better employer, though Satan allows much more scope for 'fun'... in the short term!

          Satan will allow you anything you can 'manifest' as long as it steers you away from God.

          God will allow you anything you want or need, providing it will not harm your relationship with Him.

          When you work for Satan (with or without your knowledge) you will be engaged in anything that separates folk from God.

          When I was working for him, I gained power over a period of ten or fifteen years which allowed me to control my and others environments to my or their benefit in a temporal sense.

          I considered myself, and was considered by others as being a savvy thinker who had it all sorted out, and enjoyed success and popularity.

          The moment I defected to Christ, things changed, and it was so noticeable that I saw the confirmation that my defection was the right thing to do.

          I wrote an article (now a hub) called 'The 'J' Word' that summed up the situation.

          Sadly most folk who work for Satan have no idea who is controlling head office, so they plod through life thinking they are really special, when they are really third grade folk who have been persuaded they are superior intellects.

          We have a few of them in the forums daily.

          Folk who refuse to accept that God exists, then spend hours each day maligning Him.... like Forrest Gump said "stupid is as stupid does"

          Cosette, the choice is yours not to believe the bible. From your earlier post, you seem to believe in God. Am I right?

            well, i think everything has some element of truth in it, like maybe Jesus really did clear the temple of the moneylenders but other parts like the plagues of egypt, the parting of the red sea, noah's ark, man being created from the dust and woman from his rib, the nephlim, and many other things like that no, i don't believe that.

            and i do believe in God. but not the Christian ideal of God and not even in many organized religions' perceptions of God. i just feel it and believe. see, i have been on my own journey, which started back up again about a year ago and i feel myself changing and pay attention to my feelings now and am not so impulsive. but i feel lost a lot of the time. i think i will always feel this way, like a boat without a rudder, just drifting. i have always said i am ok with this alone feeling but lately i am aware of it and don't necessarily like it all that much...i never admitted that to myself (or others) until now.



            i will read your hub and comment there. thanks.

              cosette, thanks for replying back. I am happy that you at least believe in God. I need to share this with you. The reason you are feeling lost is because there is a void in your heart, and you need Jesus to fill that void. You don't have to always feel lost. I am glad that you shared this with me. Jesus rescued me, and he desire to rescue you also. He is knocking at the door of  your heart for you to let him in.

                Woman - you are not qualified to make psychiatric diagnoses on a public Internet forum.

                Just because the only thing that makes your life worth living is a  nonsensical belief that you will live a better life when you are dead - this is not a fantastic idea to spread because it invariably gives people a false  impression that they know something when they do not. This always causes people like yourself to give poor advice that a meaningless answer that satisfies you is satisfactory for everybody.

                This stems from the deep seated knowledge that you are basing your life on a misconception, and what will actually give you comfort is validation from other people that they are satisfied with this nonsensical answer that you are satisfied with. It co-incidentally causes numerous conflicts.

                What you are really doing is avoiding the problem and burying it deep in your psyche meaning you will never reach your full potential, nor will you become the rounded person you mistakenly think you are because your pride in jesus is so great.

                Jesus is not the answer - it is the problem.

                If Jesus was the answer - there would be a noticeable increase in the happiness and well being of people who believed. There is not. In fact - there is a noticeable increase in crimes committed by self professed christians compared to non believers; christians have a slightly higher suicide rate than atheists; christians are less well educated than atheists and societies that are heavily religious are consistently less well educated and developed than those that are not.

                Please stop hurting people to make yourself feel fulfilled. You do not have an answer. You are giving bad advice. I am certain Cosette has had many opportunities to swallow the placebo you have taken.

                Ask yourself why it makes you feel "happy" that some one "at least believes in god?"

                Radical Muslim terrorists at least believe in god. Does this make you happy?

                If you have any ability to self-analyze - which I sincerely doubt - you will discover a deep rooted psychosis and fear of death, and your current obsession with persuading other people to accept your ridiculous beliefs, thus validating them, merely serves as a distraction from your true lack of meaning and obvious internal conflict. This is why christians are often so desperate to spread their version of this nonsense. It keeps them from facing the truth.

                I am not a qualified analyst, but I have been a therapist for ten years. I recommend seeking professional help from a qualified counselor. Not some religious quack who will reinforce the validation you so desperately need.

                Good luck. I wish you well in your journey of self discovery.

                  Mark, I may not be a psychiatrist, but I am a employee of a great God. Therefore I will continue to carry out my mission for God. Your message is full of negativity, and anything negative is the thoughts of the devil. I have not recieved any of it. The joy of the lord is my strength, and that is more greater than happiness. It's a shame how you are trying to get others to think like you, and stay in misery. Scroll up and carefully read what aquasilver has posted, and you will gain knowledge in how the devil works. I am sure you will see clearly how you are allowing the devil to use you. There is no such thing as luck. Blessings of God is far more greater. Jesus is the answer, and the only true way! Love you

                    No - you do not love me. Clearly you do not know what that means, nor "employee" apparently.

                    I genuinely suggested a positive solution to your clear and obvious problem. I understand hiding behind an imaginary friend for support is acceptable behavior for a child - but you seem like an adult.

                    Honestly - get help. There are people that can help you with this mental illness.

                    As you do not understand the concept of "luck" - I still wish you well, and I do not love you in the christian way. That is painful for the recipient. sad I genuinely hope you can see through your obvious denial and get help.

                    I know you hate the idea of me wishing you luck, but - I don't care what you ask so - I wish you luck and fortitude instead. Good luck. smile

    While you in the meantime have decided who is evil and who is not.

    That is Megalomania, see a doctor.

      If this was directed at me, I have not decided anything, the bible clearly defines who is whatever, and as you have read it, you will recognise who you serve.

      Megalomania:

      Megalomania is an unrealistic belief in one's superiority, grandiose abilities, and even omnipotence. It is characterized by a need for total power and control over others, and is marked by a lack of empathy for anything that is perceived as not feeding the self.

      I leave it to the readers to decide who is displaying "lack of empathy for anything that is perceived as not feeding the self."
