Why did God give us beauty? Is this what god is? Was God concerned about the pioneer's 'happiness' when they went days without food, got measles, yellow fever, cholera, were attacked and killed by Indians, by other settlers, by thieves, by wild animals? We need to put our words together very carefully. You, Peter, would not allow any of those things to happen to someone you love if you had the power to prevent it. However, for you to understand what Jesus meant by this passage, you have to take into account to whom He was speaking to. The problem with the atheist view that good would supposedly prevent evil is that they assume that the world is meant to be a perfect place. If you read my last blog, I shared just a small snippet of the compressed highs and lows of the last nine months death, two graduations, death, layoffs, marriage, another death…. Millions need him just as much, but not more.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. I know a couple, and this is no joke or exaggeration, who have monstrous health problems. Their kind of religion will make your life a literal hell on earth! I could be wrong though. Jesus said he would feed his children. But after Jesus died and resurrected, He no longer has the shortcomings that He experienced while being in a human body. But I would never say that.
Instead of getting the new Iphone that comes out and having top of the line technology, give a little. But I do know what God has put in my heart. The word in Scripture refers to any illicit sexual activity, and this would have to include the abhorrent acts of a pedophile—including the gathering and trading of obscene or indecent pictures of young children. How's that for Jeremiah 29:11 and for God's love? Now, taking another look with fresh eyes, I see how much works this post needs to make it the best it could possibly be. Something good, God is great! Gods, if they exist, have shown that they are not interested in holding our hands.
As a minister for over 30 years I can't count how many so-called disciples of Christ have uprooted their families from our church and moved to another state merely for economic leverage or to escape the winter season—all without hearing from God or first researching where their families could find a good church. For God to step in and stop the greed that consumes the wealthy leaders of any country where children live in abject poverty and are literally starving to death, then He would be taking away His gift of free will. So I want you to quit focusing on all the things you want to gain and start thinking about all that you can give. His wife has lupus and another autoimmune disease, I forget which. This Creator is responsible for this enormous, incredibly complex universe. Complete sentences and proper grammar will help others understand you.
Is this why so many priests and pastors rape and molest children? Thats is one lame excuse of a god throwing responsibility. That messes with free will. In school we were taught that god is One and we all are children of the same god. If I do start a new blog, you'll probably be able to find it pretty easily. Human beings are responsible for the suffering on this earth. The Manager is trained and perfectly capable of doing all the other tasks but will step back and allow the employees to do well on their own, while they encourage. However, that is not the case.
That's not how God operates. I am unemployed on disability can barely afford to live in this world. This shallow theology has succumbed to the worldly ideal that equates success with material prosperity, comfort, and the ability to live a life of ease. This is the worst thing that has ever happened to me. In sum, the case against God fails.
The point just got lost. In fact, He feels for us when we suffer, hurting for us like a grieving parent. Years of struggles and darkness. But, God seems to allow it. When Calvinism takes on suffering, they go even beyond the ridiculous reply of god to Job when Job asked what he did wrong. When God asks Adam why he ate the apple, instead of taking responsibility for himself for going against what God told him, he shifts the blame to Eve. What is most amazing is the double-speak christians do.
And try to think of it this way Rapido- You want a world filled with love, goodness, kindness. With regard to this, superrational behavior in markets produces terrible distortions, the class structure of capitalism is entirely maintained through people shaking hands and giving a leg up to their buddies, it is not a conspiracy of evil. But for those who have been suffering their whole lives know this guy means the truth. Joseph Mattera is overseeing bishop of Resurrection Church, Christ Covenant Coalition, in Brooklyn, N. . God can build up another church, perhaps even a healthier church, on that very same spot, to become a new shell for the people hurting inside. I know that because I am alone and if I want to make something work I have to fight for it.
As He says, if we seek His kingdom all the rest will be provided for us. I can say that because as a former atheist, this is what made me leave the Christian faith to begin with. Because that is what you are doing…saying God should feed everyone. And even if he where real, I would hate him. No one needs God more than I.
I can think of numerous Bible verses in which God instructs His children to feed the poor people of the world. How about those children whose prayers are answered? It is up to us to do what we can. When you love someone their happiness is very important to you. Look at the nations God has torn down and lifted up. They probably weren't meaning to mislead you. They sat in the cutb crying.
