Oh, so you want me to back upmy correction to you?
Here, Genesis 2:7
"And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."
God created man from space dust.

If I told you I did good things for people because a carrot told me too, and because I have a book called "The carrot seed" and it makes me do stuff, you'd think I was a loon wouldn't you?

Oh sorry so God did create us to fail and burn in hell and hell is earth because there is something better then earth? So wait. Why did he go to the effort to make earth again and us .... He needs to get his priorities right.
I am going to ask the car dealership next time. "Ok, so if I buy this car now right. I know its a pile of sh*t but if I buy this in hope for lets say, a Lamborghini I may get one? Because right you promised me if I hope and pray."
I could tell you many things that i have done in Jesus name but as i say, no one will take it as the truth

Chin up Jon. Being cautious, I can't say that I believe that your experiences are true, or that you've assigned the correct agency to them. But I allow for them being true and that you've assigned the correct first agency to them. I certainly don't assume they're not true.
Hard to find something if you're not looking for it and start off the hunt certain that it doesn't exist. All you're seeing here is people that believe that their inability to find a fish in the desert is proof that fish don't exist.
My central point is that, on Christian convictions, it is entirely logical to look at the suffering of the world in all its miserable array and conclude that God must have bloody good reasons for choosing this course and, further, that his promised resolution must be bloody amazing to make up for the measure of ugliness that mars the beauty and order of existence.
