Look, I know you are a non-believer, so I won't bore you too much. But, there is one simple thing about the idea of good and evil in this picture - any peace would be bad to the ultimate agent of evil. So, what's going on in Syria? Yeah, that would be due to him (Satan), and it doesn't have to be for any grander purpose than that he likes to create chaos and suffering.
I thought the "civil" war in Syria is all about natural gas.
It's Gazprom/Russia vs. Qatar/Saudi/American interests.
NG Pipelines to Europe.
The NWO central bank B.I.S. is rabid and jealous too.
Oil is secondary.
Hey Krazysh0t how's it going man?
Just thought I'd tune in with this. I get your angle when you say we're perfectly free to screw everything up , but not perfectly free to fix it all- we always need something or someone to save us.
I wrestled with that forever. But Here's a question. What if they can co-exist?? Meaning when you believe someone like Christ really is going to save us- that's the missing link we need to want to be a part of the fix?
It's telling that it seems like humans are notoriously bad for screwing everything up when we're going through the motions without guidance and just being human. It's because we're fallen- meaning we respond barbarically, violently, some it's not so extreme it's cruel, than just rude, dismissive, careless, ignorant etc... We all have our blemishes and our strong points, but what is that's a sign that we need to be a part of the change, and the solution.
And the only way to fully be a part of that change and solution- is surrending to God's will.
see we're capable of doing Good here and there whether we believe in God or not, but that's not enough.. Because only God knows exactly what we need, and only God is perfect love, so wouldn't it make sense to even consider that a possibility?
GEN. WESLEY CLARK: I knew why, because I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, "Sir, you've got to come in and talk to me a second." I said, "Well, you're too busy." He said, "No, no." He says, "We've made the decision we're going to war with Iraq." This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, "We're going to war with Iraq? Why?" He said, "I don't know." He said, "I guess they don't know what else to do." So I said, "Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?" He said, "No, no." He says, "There's nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq." He said, "I guess it's like we don't know what to do about terrorists, but we've got a good military and we can take down governments." And he said, "I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail."
So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, "Are we still going to war with Iraq?" And he said, "Oh, it's worse than that." He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, "I just got this down from upstairs" -- meaning the Secretary of Defense's office -- "today." And he said, "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me." And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, "You remember that?" He said, "Sir, I didn't show you that memo! I didn't show it to you!"
AMY GOODMAN: I'm sorry. What did you say his name was?
GEN. WESLEY CLARK: I'm not going to give you his name.
AMY GOODMAN: So, go through the countries again.
GEN. WESLEY CLARK: Well, starting with Iraq, then Syria and Lebanon, then Libya, then Somalia and Sudan, and back to Iran.
