No....I have made no decisions. I was clear as to my beliefs. I could never be christian because I believe in free will. There may be a God....but
in no way would I ever believe that he could exist in a way that would make him, control my life in all of its aspects, control my decisions, condemn
me to hell for decisions I could have never made ect. I cannot believe that God is what you say because I am not about to take away my ability to
It bothers me so deeply that you are all too intentionally set on ignoring logic, to see where the problems rest in your thoughts. If you thank God
for saving your sister who was in a car accident, when in reality that surgeon saved her life, then you are saying thank you god, for making that
surgeon do it, and making those paramedics get their on time, and for making sure the accident didn't kill her. You are saying, thank god for
completely controlling everything.
God is not responsible for our problems, hardships, joys, or anything at all. We are. Humans save each other and help each other. God does not. It
is a twisted lie that people tell themselves to ease the fear of death. There may be an afterlife. There may be a God. I don't know. What I do
know, is that he can in no way interfere with our lives. If he did at all, being that he is as all powerful as you each seem to think, then every
interference, would predetermine our lives. Our decisions. Our thoughts.
God has no control over my thoughts. He has no control over my decisions. ( I love it when people say...no he doesn't, and then refer to their
bible...because they are too busy trying to defend something to take a logical look at it.) Since God has no control over those thoughts, I am
allowed to think that people do the good in the world, and people do the evil. Satan and God are not responsible whether they exist or not.
Go pray...and when your prayer does not get answered, claim....sing about how you thank God for unanswered prayers. Even though that would logically
mean their is no reason to pray. If God hears you, and does not answer you all the time...and when he does, its not always the way you want (thats
astounding!), that means he does what he wants and disregards your request anyway.
Rather than spending your time praying to a god who will do what he wants anyway, why don't you go down to a food kitchen and do some good. See the
true horror of reality for some people. Stop again before you pray for them (cuz god may or may not help depending on his mood or whatever), and
instead of praying, HELP THEM YOURSELF!
Instead of thanking God for those kids who got out of the fire, THANK THE FIREMAN! God had no parts in them saving those children, unless they did
not have free will. If they did have free will, then they, NOT GOD trained. Then they, NOT GOD, braved the heat and flames.
Doctors, fireman, police, "good samaritans", neighbors, soldiers, laborers, leaders. Thank them for using their FREE WILL to make a conscious
decision to make life better for you. To risk their own. To be brave. Thank them.
