////From simplynoone:They saw the miracles ..they still chose their idols ..
Wouldnt we do the same if he did that in our time ?
I believe we would ..
Well alot of us did do just that ..since we first heard and believed ..
Personally I do not think it would matter much even if God did yell from heaven and say hey meet me at the mountain yonder way and I will talk with
you ..I wonder how many would even show up ...most would dismiss God speaking as some trick and just blow it off anyway .
They do that now ..they say ..that was not a miracle that was just coincidence and chance happenings ..or they say ..God isnt talking that is all in
your head ...etc ..
////i already believe as well,i have witnessed a miracle, but why was my mother chosen to live while others die? i was termed MIRACLE BABY in USA
today, the 2nd ever successful reverse vasectomy baby that was health, but my older brother had to die in order for my parents to desire another boy,
and get my father un-fixed. so really, i can't let myself believe in these miracles unless i believe God gives them to some, while others not worthy
are not. i can't put faith in a God that chooses who lives or dies, so i can't believe that. and again, would it be fair to you if Islam was
actually correct, but you never converted because you feel strongly about your faith? u must understand the very low likeleyhood that someone will
come to christ after being raised a different way. how is it fair that a jew would not go to paradise because they didn; belive in christ, it's what
they were taught to believe, and at a very young/impressionable, easy to manipulate age no less. so no, there is not really a choice at all, if they
think hades is waithing for those who believe in christ, that's a scary thought, and they will stick with waht they know.
///more from simply:I will ponder your questions though and truly pray that you get your answers ..and I pray that God puts that doubting thomas
spirit to rest in you once and for all ...
PS ...just so you know ..I think they are really good questions and I have even asked some of them myself over the years ...
I would like to know why God didnt just lock the devil up before he could even reek havoc on the earth ..but I have since learned that the Devil also
has his purpose and it will all be towards and for the Glory of GOD in the end.So I quit asking that question ....
Everything has its purpose and I have seen that for sure even in my own life.
thank you for the prayer... that honestly means a lot to me, but i cannot have total faith until i find an anwere that makes total sense about these
topics. but you are starred, and illusions and Venit are as well, because input is what i need.
/////from leovirgo: "I think you have witnessed a miracle yourself, about our mother. TO me, a miracle, is as simply as God showing himself to
someone through their spirit. God showed our mother Theeself (not literally God) but showed her a place that was not of this world, to me, that is a
You and I have had endless talks about 'energy' of something. We have seen positive energy and negative energy. YOu know they are there, we didnt
make them up in our minds. What you are having trouble with, now that you are opening your heart more to the spiritual side of things, is
understanding Biblical ties to the spiritual itself. Use your intuition. The intuition is only helpful if you ground yourself that your life is not
for you and you alone, its for the works of God. You dont have to go around living like a monk, you just need to let all opportunities humble you, no
matter how hard the experience is. So many times people blame Satan or evil forces for the wrongs in this world. The wrongs that people do need to be
excepted as the peoples own wrongs. Our adversary, is our ego, and boy can it get us into some trouble as well as darken our soul so much, God can not
The Bible-people want to except it as entirely by the works of God and place God in this mind set that this is all that he is, whatever the Bible
says. We know our mother believes this, you know that I dont. Instead of worrying yourself with what things are true and false, just know that God
wants us to live a certain way, that way is to live for others more then ourselves. Be humble, bring peace, serve love.
//////yes mom seems to be a miracle by all accounts, but then again, for me to believe that, that she was givena choice to come back to us or stay
with jesus and go through the gates, then i would have to believe that she got that miracle, whiles others are dying and not getting the same choice.
i can't believe God intervines with such matters, to do so tells how cruel he must be to have let our brother die with so much ahead of him, while
mother lives with most of her life already lived. i thought you agrres with me that God doesn't change outcomes, only gives us opprotunities for
greatness, not making it happen!
eople think God is not fair because they are using there own scale of what fair is. If God lays out a guide on how to live a
joyful, fruitful existence, and nations fail to adhere to it, they can't then turn around and say their predicament is not fair. Even trials are a
blessing if you have understanding, and some are merely a witness to others, which is what this entire age is, a witness for all eternity on what
happens when we turn from God. As for miracles, they are performed daily, they just aren't recognized.
//////i'm not using my own scal i am bebing objective. someone raised in america or canada or mexico by the majority are raised christian to begin
with, therefor it's not much a stretch for them to believe, yet i am asking about countries that are not predominately christian, they have a sever
disadvantage to believing, they are raised different! why can't somone see that? i will never convert to islam, or hindu, because i have faith in
christ and god, and i was raised that way. even with overwhelming evidence otherwise, i still would not convert...and neither do those people in the
East! the deck is stacked against them from the beginning, and i find it sad.
//////drevill says: "which god are you on about then?
you say you dont follow the God of the bible, but you question why the miracles in the bible do not happen?
they do, just look. "
first, i think i said i had problems with parts of the bible, the examples shown are not as grand as seas parting, or burning bushes.
