I dont need to deeply research a fact that I already know which is that humans everywhere are sinful by nature, and now more than ever. China has been on the news for quite awhile now and everything that comes out of it is bad news thanks to the Chinese government. one of them is killing children around the world through lead-based toys made that way out of recklessness and profit.

Maybe God is setting an example, if we dont follow him then we die in the same way. we have yet to learn of why earthquakes happen or else we wouldve predicted it. China did do alot of bad things these couple of years and it now has a huge ego, in the same way the roman empire had and look what happened to them. The fall of america is another sign of God's disapproval of U.S actions and social change towards gay marriages and abortion, etc. Gay marriages in my opninon is a direct violation because its spiteful towards God's creed. its like we amended something sacred and twisted it.

When you say God.. What God are you talking about???
Why is it that people see God as some bearded fatherly figure that doles out punishment to everyone?
Time and time agin I hear.. If you dont belive what I tell you to belive your going to be punished, and then sent to a burning pit of fire, to hurt forever!!!!! But he loves you!
This thread is laughable.. I dont know what "God" you think you are talking about.. But as a man you have no idea what God even is.
You do not know the hand of God, Nor do you know the will of God.
All you know is what you where told to belive.
And Im starting to think the God you mean, is the punisher God.
The evil and spiteful God..
My God doesnt hurt anyone.. Nor does my God inflict pain upon others.
Men do that to Men.. Bottom line..
Humans are to blame..
And lets throw in mother Earth.. And claim the workings of the earth is God. You paint a very broad stroke with your claim here.
And its rather upsetting for me to think that theres people out here who really belive God would punish people?
No we punish ourselfs..
So stop pushing off all our issues on "God".
God is like the ultra mega scapegoat of this world..
And its a sad sad thing..
Like another member said.. If God is the type of God that throws down pain and death.. Well maybe hell isnt all that bad of a place.
And maybe thats why Satan rebelled aginst God and heaven..
Becasue Lucifer knew that it was a corupted system.. And hence he was cast out.. By someone who is suppose to be all loving and caring..
Hmmm sounds alot like how this world works..
Men and their manipulations are really hurting us from growing as a people.
To much fear.. And to many men claiming they know the will of GOD..
WE do not know what Gods will is!!! WE do not know!!!!!
Why dont people get that? Well its becasue their ego wont allow them to say.. I dont know.. Always have to come up with some BS reason.
When you can be humble and say.. We dont know.. But lets just try to love eachother until the end.. maybe thats part of it..
