the people on this forum have to stop taking themselves so seriously. None of us are some modern-day Athanasius, we all just have nothing better to do.

How can you allow all of the suffering on this planet to go on without intervening (ie a child dying of starvation every five seconds, plagues, natural disasters, AIDS, child pornography, human exploitation and slavery, malaria, diabetes, etc etc etc)?


how can we appreciate the gift offered to us if we have no frame of reference for the opposite? simply telling us is not enough for mortal man, we need to see and feel to understand.
Even satan himself can appear as an Angel of the Lord, and do good works in His name, to distract you from the path of True Righteousness

Ever notice that just like there is no age limit on stupidity, there is no IQ limit either? kind of explains a lot huh?

I don't think that you would need to ask that question as St. Paul has already given us the answer in 1 Corinthians 13, verse 12:  "For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known."

 Great reply!  But, as you can see, the Devil's influence is still strong; even among us Christians.  Lord, have mercy!

Ditto for me as well!

With an additional question; you exist, so why all the subterfuge to make it look like you don't?

That's easy, he humbled Himself so that we could be free and choose His love freely.

I would like to change my question. My new one is: Dear God, why did you create a serpent that talks? Didn't you know what would happen?  8)
