use regular stuff. I have an over normal family life. So normal in fact that someone stole my identity once and brought me back two more saying "here, use one of these, yours is absolutely mind numbing regular."

LOL. I think we must lead very similar lives.

Okay, I highly doubt she lives in fear that you're going to murder or torture her. Any child that lives in fear of such a thing has every right to question whether or not their parent actually loves them, don't you think?

You can trust that if you are doing the next right thing, to the best of your ability, things will work out. Some people just don't have the capability of doing that.

I don't have to "trust" a person that uses "god" as a weapon to oppress others just because they whip out the word "god said so.".
Have it your way. I speak from my own experience with God. He's always trustworthy-man rarely is.

We seem to get so many non-Christians here who are only familiar with the fundamentalist version of Christianity, and I like to let them know that the rest of us exist.
Understood. Before I was Born Again, I was a major skeptic, and even as a new believer 20 years ago, I was very ignorant spiritually. Thank God, He didn't call me to understand Him, just to trust Him. My understanding is much greater now, but I'll never totally understand Him and His Word. Even better, my trust in Him is so much stronger due to repeatedly experiencing His faithfulness in my life!

Ah, well, that would be exactly my point.
Man.
God is not reflective in murders and genocide. Now Man ...that's another story.

I am sorry you were not able to explain to this thread how God is
reflected in the Bible....taking even one example I gave.
Mind you, you are entitled to your beliefs, imo.
C'ya.

Well, in a way He does....in Jeremiah...But he who does boast let him boast of this that he knows and understands me....so saith the Lord.


Let me say...understanding the Lord personally and directly should be the goal of every human
(that believes there is a God).

lmao ... her live in fear? Its me thats in deep trouble.

any parent that teaches a child that the universe made them sinners or that its going to torture them forever is a major problem.

Its not your grand child's fault that these children were turned lose on them ... its my fault.

Do you really want an answer, or just an opportunity to make fun of my Faith?
