Or is He? In my view, God makes mistakes and is not perfect. Actually, it seems that part of perfection is imperfection. God himself experiments and allows bad so that lessons can be learned.
According to the OT, God said he would never create another flood.
Why? Did he regret what he had done? Was it a mistake to bring so many souls to such a watery demise?
There has never been one big flood to cover the earth. Yet floods across the world at different times have killed more people than any other natural disasters.
Ice caps from the poles melting could kill us greater than any pervious wars.
There is nothing imperfect!!! Life is a learning process that teaches every life-force all details of the "Zeroverse" (Universe) by living every possible scenario within it. Once that is completed by each life-force it becomes the life-force of the Zeroverse before going through a forgetting process before going back through another learning sequence.
Everything that is will alway appear at the particular time in each particular cycle so the giving life-forces can experience both the giving and receiving of each action. Our timelines (sequence of incarnating) are like a coil here on earth. Let us take Audie Murphy who live to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor after protecting his squadron by remaining on a burning tank in the Southeast Pacific and killed a (?)squadron(?) of Japanese. To experience dying all of those times his life-force, we will say, had just entered earth as human when this civilization began. So he lived many different lives until he became Audie Murphy and went to WW2 to do it. When WW2 returns in the next cycle he will be one of the Japanese and another one in each following cycle until he experienced each of the lives he terminated this time around. That is Karma and perfect although he won't remember it until he incarnates to ascend (as believed) from the earth.
That same pattern followers cereal rapists, molesters, drug pushers, presidents, congressman, police, judges and every other action we call good deeds or evil deeds. That law is perfected therefore the acts are perfect that makes the performers of the acts perfect.
Instead of offing us, as in the flood, he gave us leeway to find Him... through one who had (found him): Jesus.
And the way to do that is to become born of the spirit into following his wayfaring example after elimination all judgmental adjectives.
accurate discernment is required in life, on earth.
If we're not willing to explore the unknown how is it possible to make an "accurate discernment" since it demands experiencing various possibilities objectively? To follow a tradition without exploring [not just visiting] others does not provide anything to be discerned.
We make judgments. That's what that fruit was all about. Good, bad. Right, wrong. Those are judgments we make within the reality we exist in. We are not in a position to judge. This reality is ephemeral.
We are, however, expected to discern, according to the Bible.
Not certain it says anywhere in that book that you are in a position to judge God.
I was given free freedom of thought and an inquiring, observant mind. Discernment relates to finding and determining what is true and real. If I come up with theories it because I am testing the ideas to determine whether or not they are true.
How can any individual, with the limited perspective we possess, discern a cosmic reality?
We have a tendency to judge God because we grapple with what the belief that we are made in God's image means. I suppose, if we believe God sits in judgment it is only natural to judge God.
Sometimes...when God is busy helping little Johnny and his friends win the softball game they prayed about,he forgets the tens of thousands of children dying of starvation in those poor countries we read about over our morning coffee....Oh well...at least Johnny's team won Huh...
Heh!, who care for those millions of kids dying overseas . When you got political baseball at home.
Babies are being born addicted to opioids. These incidents are imperfection and have no place. These are mistakes and accidents. These are hell on earth. These should be guarded against. Doctors should be held accountable. Will God?
There is no excuse.
That also falls under karma's perfect law, there is no imperfection exception in our judgmental minds.
God gave us complete and utter free will.
We are all accountable for our actions. I do believe karma returns.
Those who give birth and contribute to opioid addicted babies and people for that matter will have the greatest burden in finding a solution.
Let the games begin.
While God remains utterly quiet.
Unless we get on the mainline.
God ONLY is accountable for your actions although god provided you with the illusion that you are in charge. We are to god what the blood in our bodies are to us. Blood is responsible for bringing into and carrying out of the body different substances. When the "white cells" surrounds something that it feels is harmful to the body it is done because those cells have that programed into them; we have the illusion of "free will" programed into us to keep us from knowing truth before we have the required experiences to comprehend life on earth.
Here is the recorded version.
Before my metamorphosis called 'new birth' that happened after almost 3 years after my 'new conception' I believed that and sang it in the church's choir. Once reborn living like the Jesus supposedly lived the truth was revealed to me. Only the new born are qualified to understand what I just said so those who aren't will disbelieve it.
reborn in spirit
Kathryn, I perceive that you adhere to the Bible; doesn’t it say, “As for God, his way is perfect,” (Ps. 18:30)?
If God permits bad things to happen, there must be some reason for it that our small minds cannot grasp.
It's like a baby who sees his mother giving him a shot of medicine in the arm; he’s swimming in pain and wonders, “I thought she loved me.” What he doesn’t grasp is that the shot was to prevent something worse from happening.
I had said: "Actually, it seems that part of perfection is imperfection. God himself experiments and allows bad so that lessons can be learned."
God is perfectly imperfect, I suppose.
Causal God is perfect.
None of us are there yet.
In the next life, God’s apparent imperfections will be perfectly understood. I love the example of the tapestry- one side is a mess, the other side is a work of art.

The reality is that we are alone in this eternal, dark, and cold universe. Why can't we accept this reality? Death is the end. There is no heaven, and there is no hell. We do not need religion in order to have a purpose in life. The purpose is to survive and not harm...

Is it possible that our earth is actually hell?I have difficulty believing that there is a reason for our world being in the shape that it is in other than we are being tested. What if being banished to hell is not for an eternity, but for what we perceive a our lifetime, a place where we...

What is Religion, to you?Is it a Church, a Preacher, or another "religious" person who you listen to for answers to life's biggest issues?
