Excellent point Charles. If I were to add anything it is that we have free will. Without free will what would we be? Also the drama and concerns that play out on this physical earth may be relatively unimportant when put in the proper context.
If there is a disconnect between God and man...then why do you assume that man is to blame? Mere mortal humans do not have the power to circumvent the will of an omnipotent being. And if FREE WILL acts as Kryptonite, then God is not all powerful.
Get: Bcuz there is a "disconnect between God & man" due to "unbelief," there are "repercussions!" You're rt - we cannot "circumvent the will of an omnipotent" God! Ask Adam&Eve if "free will" is Kryptonite yet He allowed them to live & s
To answer this question I will ask you a question , true all things listed are happening, but as a president gets elected into office , does he solve issues and complaints right away, he is not sworn in yet, and when he is it takes time for issues
K&T: "unbelievers" must first adhere to II Chron 7:14 until then, they will remain the same!
So God is angry at us, just because we don't believe in him? Isn't that kinda petty and immature, especially for a God?! However I'm pretty sure that believing in ancient texts will not bring peace to the earth. 38,000 diff denominations prove that.
Get: Call HIM what u will but HE's the Creator & has set the rules! "38,000 diff denom" as is diff levels of school! "Belief" is fm PK1 to PhD! No "Belief" His POWER "LIMITED!"
It appears that people are always CREATING God in the exact image they want Him to be. Good job!
A step ahead! At least we've "created" GOD!
Who has the legal right to Rule and make changes? After king David, King Solomon,
The next who will was appointed is The Messiah Jesus, his kingship is located in the heavenly realms, but his work is like no others, he is doing an education work .
K&T: Yes He is doing an "educational" work now! Please "listen!" Study!
That's kinda like a God that's not really there. If that's the best He can do, it would seem that He may as well not exist..and prayer and worship is useless.Prayer is asking for intervention. But if God cant break his own rules he cant find my keys
Who is blaming god? Not atheists. They do not blame a god or gods because he/she/it is not there to blame. If YOU think god is "omnipotent and omnipowerful", YOU are attributing a god with these qualities. My answer is my opinion.
I agree w/ Austinstar, Atheists don't blame God. You can't blame an entity u feel doesn't exist.There is no blame - just the opinion that the world is the world, life is what it is. If you want to call it all a changeable god, that's fine with me.
Oz. If your God was real, then, yes, he should definitely take the blame.But that's only if he existed. As a parent, if I didn't protect or feed my children, would you say I was not to blame? Please don't play the free will game.That explains nothing
But He has "feed us" with His Word but we fail to eat thru "unbelief" creating "self made" repercussions!
Next when all earthly subjects willfully allow
To be educated and apply changes , then they will be a New Earth and Heavens that work togather for the peace and happiness of all humans who work with him.
This system as we speak is satan and ending
K&T: We MUST "overcome" @ Heb 6:1-3 in preparation for "New Government!" Until we "mature" in His Word re:baptism, laying..." we can't begin to "study heaven!"
Don't "put the horse before the cart!" Let's get ready for inclusion in the New Go
Norinne, We cant eat words! One should not try to replace REALITY with METAPHORS. Yes UNBELIEF is for people who refuse to drink the poisoned Kool-Aid. Believing something just because I am threatened shows a rigid submission to authority...not God.
Get: It seems u've "eaten" man-made "words!" If u created robot, He obeys u! So it is w/GOD, THE CREATOR, or consequences!
No Norine. It is the believers who have eaten the words of man...men who wrote stuff down, then claimed that God told them to. God did not create u or me. U just believe that because, u believe the words of ancient humans. They sold u this God.
Get; Great SALE with "benefits!"
If you consider false hope a benefit, then yes.
Get: Action "SEEN" in my life is not false, you may think a LIE but I've SEEN!
Unbelief LIMITS "SEEING!" (Hebrews 3:19)
You express your anger at God very well. And you make the case that there is no God very well. "if there is no God then who in the hell should I be mad at?"
There is no reason to be mad. We simply haven't evolved enough to control our capacity for violence and empathy. We will get there if we survive as a species. I am not angry at "god" I just don't see any evidence for one.
Austinstar, Agreed! If as believers feel, we are created in God's image, then our capacity for suffering would imply that a Creator would understand such suffering and like wish for suffering to cease, so an omnipotent Creator would not allow it.
BK: He understands; we don't! "ALL thgs work together for good to them that love God, ACCORDING to HIS PURPOSE." (Rm 8:28) He's the Creator; therefore, it's HIS PURPOSE not "ours!"
Eze 21:27A ruin, a ruin, a ruin I will make it. And it will not belong to anyone until the one who has the legal right comes, and I will give it to him.’
Notice God's does things (Legal) !
The one he chose to represent him
Will Rule with change.
K&T: Why is it I see so many "studying heaven" rather than "studying how to get to heaven?" They speak of the "New Government," He's coming again, He'll change things, etc" which is true, but do we not want to be ready?
All things done wrong will be undone, all life lost unjustly will be returned, sickness will not exist, neither evil ways , and crime , bad
Habits that cause sorrow and pain.
The bad experiences of earth since Adam and Eve will cease.
K&T: Most continue to speak of the "New Government" but are we ready? Do we live according to how commanded Gal 1:6-9 under the apostles' doctrine (Acts 2:42) as the disciples did when "orig Church" was established on the Day of Pentecost?
Norine so far your appearances here to me is very questionable when giving you scriptures they do not apply to you but you want to make scriptures apply to everyone else, that is not realistic in all fairness.How can you teach when you do not listen
K&T: Listen to WHAT? Did I not say when teaching, I teach to myself too?
I still ask "Are you ready?"
Acts 2:42? or Galatians 1:6-9!
