I already hear the arguments coming concerning WWII and the Nazis and Jews, 9/11, etc. Why would a "good" God allow these things to happen. A common mistake is perceiving God as a grandfatherly type old man, either incapable or unwilling to help man in times of crisis. What you need to bear in mind is that God is a "Holy" God, who uses many things to accomplish His objectives. Among the many things He uses is wrath.
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose

If Christ returns at any point I expect to see stomping through 98% of the churches in America kicking a majority of "christians" in the butts for the last thousand years of bigotry, hatred, intolerance. Then' he'd probably spit at them and go hang out with the left overs of the Hippies.

Maybe, there will be a splinter in time (although Time doesn't actually exist either) will continue to manifest what they 'think about' most. And when people think about what they Don't want most, they get more of it. So either people allow the media to curve what they think about to their own agenda and liking or, people wake up to it and disconnect from the guys holding the puppet strings.

I'd only have one question for him..
"Why didn't you let my sister experience life instead of giving her the bone disorder that killed her at three weeks old?..( for you christians.. three weeks of life isn't experiencing it and it didn't happen for a reason).. why have you let so many die in your fathers name?.. why did you let my grandparents die before they saw their first great-grandson?.. ok so that's more than one question but hey..
