Thank you Sheba even though that post was squarely pointed at Brainsmasher to answer his question in the most accurate way I know how.

Hehehe, dunno about that, but I might have to read this one again in the morning while I'm dragging myself out of bed. Not an easy thing to do anymore.... I need the motivation. Thanks again.

You're so welcome The words for BS are good ones, but others are always watching & listening & reading to see how we handle things. I appreciate the character in your words.

As far as morning - it's filled with new mercies - Got to get out of that bed to catch as many as possible. That's why I love mornings - early is great!!

So what you are saying is that your all powerful and all knowing omnipotent god, DOES in fact have limitations placed on his "powers".

Interesting, because that's basically the exact opposite of what you've been preaching for the last 3 months.

Telling someone their time on this world is short and the fall is going to hurt isn't "disagreeing" with them.

Even YOU aren't that stupid, so stop acting like I am.

So you have a NEW solution because it's sounds like the same 2007 year old bull**** to me.....

I didn't ask you to compare yourself to god, I indicated how an omnipotent being should be able to come up with better solutions than torturing and murdering his own son.

If your god exists, he is a FAILURE, and unworthy of worship, plan and simple.

I do believe this. Raising a family or running a company is uncomfortable at times. Even downright painful. But I do it, and with a smile on my face. Even when I don't feel like it. I don't even know why, which means that it became second nature. This means that something greater than I am has "soaked in" to me, and I am very happy even though I have never worked so hard or been in so much pain before. It seems to me that even "paradise on earth" is a relative thing.

Yep, but you don't claim to walk on water and have unlimited power, do you?

Although, your 2nd and 3rd options are rather synonyous, aren't they?

BTW, do I get to vote twice since I'm not a christian AND I have faith in both man and science?
I WAS WONDERING ABOUT THAT MYSELF

Welcome to SBLive!, Wolf. Apart from the unusually long username, it's good to see another of my kind around. By the way, if you could turn your caps off when you post, that's be much appreciated.

It's not that easy.. and if you take it that way, it seriously discredits your message to others that religion is a serious means of living and yours is any better than another.
