Supposing you had the power or rewinding time

    If you had the power to turn back the hands of time for once, what three things would you turn the hands of time for and why?

      I don't know, Bro. If you do that, unless you retained your memory, you will be pushed along the lines of the same mistakes. You're probably thinking that the memory will remain, but if you go back, you will be where you were. Each step represents growth; each moment is new, and the Soul does not usually go back, although this is possible and an Omnipotent God is not bound by any rules.

      Generally though, He does not change the Order. This is my experience and inner conviction. Don't you like newness and a touch of pain and sacrifice? Christ bore this, and so we should expect a little. No matter how small.

      1. JFK assassination--and be able to stop it.
      2. Robert Kennedy assassination--same reason as above
      3. The Beatles break-up--same reason.

    This is a difficult question I have asked. Every mature people would love to move on but those who have experienced pain from the demise of their loved one would definately have pulled the trigger if it was God's choice

    One funny thing that I think about is it will be unfair if someone could rewind time. It would be unfair to our parents after all the troubles they encountered bringing us up the right way. What then? go back in time and start again, the'd say a capital NO

      Only if they remembered. That was part of my initial point. To reverse time naturally would reverse the memory, too, no? Somehow the law cannot be thwarted. There is a story of the Buddha who had a very advanced disciple who was very compassionate. He saw through his occultic vision, that a certain village was going to be destroyed. He told the Buddha who then did nothing, so the disciple used his occult power and made the village tinier than the tiniest, hoping that the plague would past by.

      The story goes that the plague also became smaller than the smallest, and entered the village, killing everyone. So you see, sometimes God does not wish to change the plan. All things have purpose. Just ask Oprah Winfrey.

        This is a very good point you made. Now if you made a note to remind for when you get back to that point in the future that would be a way around it. However rewinding time will erase the note making event all together.
        The only way this can happen is if you can live in parallel times being both the present and the past at the same time. Then your present self would have to somehow get the message around  to your other self who warp time, before the "mistake was" made.

        It all seems like a "B-rated" Sci-fi film to me.
