Religious people believe that God is all knowing. So, that means that God knew that humans would disobey him. He knew that all of this nonsense we call existence would happen. Why bother? Hint: There is no God.

IF u were GOD & created man to PRAISE U, u would!
Bad "imaginary" breath u breathe???
Bring that "soul" under subjection to THE CREATOR!!!
Norine, please go away.
Norine has it ever occurred to u that any God who creates man for the sole purpose of worshiping him is a piece of garbage, and should be held in contempt?
Well, welcome to the "garbage pile," for u desire praise because u were "created in His image!"
Now LIE & say u don't!
Sorry to hear that you are an addict and that people around you created temptation. Sad.
Oh no they didn't create temptation, you misunderstood. I didn't use what they left around. I told them go ahead & leave it because if I want to use I can get my own. Plus if I was going to use.. I would want a whole lot more then what they had!
It's the same as leaving a gun out where your child has access (if he/she desires) when you've taught "Thou shalt not kill" (Exd 20:13)! As Rob says if they want to kill, they could "get their own!"
But, "For every action, there is a reaction!"
Norine, so you agree that it is wrong for a parent to leave a gun laying around where a child might find it?
They have "CHOICE" & I'm sure parents have "taught" & don't leave "lying around!"
Parents also have CHOICE to own a gun!
WORD says "He takes care of birds" (Matt 6:24-34) are we less?
Norine, are these people any less than birds? When was the last time you saw a bird starving to death? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er1kTF3smOE
MM: U've "proven" yourself - "SATAN!"
Did you just call me Satan? LOL!!!
I don't get link fm HP when 1 comments! Again, JESUS said HE takes care of birds & HE will take care of us is all I'm saying! People have "choice!" If u disagree, u disagree w/WORD, then "Satan" (I Cor 10:21)!
God did this to his children.
If there is an epidemic Lois... they don't need their parents to leave them dope they can get their own. Lol not very expensive. Also Money Man some ppl wana use drugs, it isn't just some curse.
Lois' children knows the repercussions but it's available & have "choice!"
Fortunately, they've seen effects & have "chosen" not to use!
Rob: It's a "curse" fm Satan to "sidetrack" one fm "TRUTH" in life! They've "Chosen," but GOD is waitin
God didn't leave me drugs, not an addict. I am not suggesting parents do this roob. Might be inexpensive but buy from the wrong guy can be tainted drugs or an undercover cop-which would be a good thing
I don't want to debate drugs Lois but opiods used to be the main drugs for depression then they got anti-depressants which werent as effective. I have chronic pain,depression,diahrea but since I'm young docs didn't wana give me ne even tho i needed.
When I had my wisdom teeth taken out I had a prescription for pain killer with codeine. Made me sick to my stomachs. I think that drug falls in same category as Heroin
Codeine is 1 of the weakest opiates there is. Sick to your stomach would be nausea. I have diarrhea. Opiates make you constipated and are a treatment for diarrhea. If you don't agree look it up. Idk y u r arguing. You have lupus sle? U think im lyin?
I don't think I am arguing or calling u a liar. Just talking about my experience. Was sick can't remember if constipated this was over 30 years ago heroin is also in opiate category
My bad Lois I took what you said the wrong way!(: I thought you were questioning how it could help my diarrhea if it messed with ur stomach. Sorry I am a jumpy person by nature lol. Most ppl get nauseated, I have been before. Thanks for sharing!
That's fine. Not enough room for comments.
Very true, have a good one.. & stay off drugs lol (;
I never had an issue with drugs but I am addicted to nicotine and am doing my best to quit smoking. I was addicted to energy drinks, but my blood pressure rose to dangerous levels. That scared me enough to stop drinking them
Eric, what do you think of Paul d'Holbach's take on free will? Also, if man has free will, how can there ever be a heaven? Man will continue to sin. It is man's nature to sin. Thoughts?
I just cannot abide by fatalism. I get his arguments but he defies himself by writing them so well. Would he have me believe he was predestined to write on such lofty matters? Complex rational thought equals no fatalism.
