My friend, whoever says God has shared his thought with them, are just plain out crazy. We live in a realm of mortals. God is divine. We know NOTHING about divinity. Sadness is an emotion we mortals precieve. Divinity are not humans so they can't feel emotions. God doesn't think about mortal thoughts. Heck, who even knows if they think? How do we even know God is a singular thing? Seriously, think about what people say about God.

No offense intended to the OP, but why are threads like these here? Shouldn't they go into BTS Religion thread?
One question I'd really like to know from all who claim god talks to them. How do you distinguish that "little voice in your head" from being your god or your conscious? Can you tell them apart or are they one in the same? I bet this question never gets answered.
I'm not an atheist, btw.
Lately I have got the notion that all those negative calling like: ´I don´t wanna live´, ´This
life is too hard´, ´I can´t take anymore of this´ and so on has stopped.
I love my children and would give them anything.
I can see in theit eyes their love for me.
If the started not to care about me, I would still love them
just as much.
Still love them, but be sad.

I think if people would listen and connect with God, peace would be all around us. Wars and crime would not exist.
God gave man free will, and as long as we continue to make the wrong choices, our world is going to continue it's misery.edit on 13-5-2011 by tinker9917 because: (no reason given)

I logged out a week ago and planned not to log in again just to only read on here every now and then. This was too great of a post not to acknowledge.
I came back from Iraq last year after my second tour. It was difficult to adjust to everyday life again so soon and I couldn't do it. I turned to alcohol to make myself feel better and to dull the pain. I was drinking a 5th and a pint a night of crown royal. January 3rd I loaded my 40 caliber pistol and decided I didn't want to live anymore. In front of my girlfriend I put my pistol to my head and pulled the trigger. My gun did not discharge and I fell to the ground. I spent the next day in the ER at UNC trying to get help for alcohol and kept the event from the night before quiet from the staff as I didn't want to spend 3 days being observed.
I have been sober since January 3rd and I do owe this to god. I was very religious before and had fallen out of touch. I believe he knew it wasn't my time. That is the only reason I can think of for my gun not discharging. God works in mysterious ways but he has given me peace. You may not believe but I do. He changed my life and I owe him mine. Thank you for this post OP. Nobody can take your faith from you.
I don't fully believe in what the OP is saying, but obviously you are a troll. Someone writes a message of hope in a religious context and because you are such a negative jerk, you feel the need to redicule or make this about you. This message isn't about you at all. It obviously wasn't meant for you either. Are you so selfish? Piss off. You wont last long here at ATS with an immature attitude like that. People wont be very fond of you and wont mind telling you that you suck.

the writer of this thread came from the Heart and acted,
only the Ego's re-acted, so no big deal.
I always thought that when Jesus was on the cross
and said forgive them for they know not what they do,
that He was referring to them not knowing Who He was.....
But another reason that has just come to me recently
is He was saying forgive them because it was just their Ego's
that they were re-acting from.. It wasn't them in their true sense
or essence, so He was saying forgive them because they truly
did not know what they were doing.... Albeit they were insane.......
