Although I do understand that maybe in an atheists mind it all exists through random chance and therefore isn't special - although it IS special?

Maybe this is for another thread though.

I agree, I think we're "special" as far as being the only inhabited planet, that we know of anyways. I mean, how many billions of people can God deal with at one time? I suppose there could be other planets out there with life forms on them, but as it stands right now we (earth) is/are the only "world" with life that we know of. I feel sure that we would know, either through science or the Bible, if other life exists out there in the universe.

Just curious.
I believe my God is an awesome God and if HE so desires it to be, make no mistakes....IT WILL!! Unless in His providence, He holds back judgment.....you will see for yourself the things that are about to unleash on this Earth! YOU needs signs and wonders to believe? You'll get them, but word of caution, 'take heed that non deceive you'.

That's what you've 'heard', this is what's known........ 'We'll get what we deserve'! Can YOU handle it?

Oh really? How is that when he created the heavens and the Earth? He always gets what he wants because he created everything and everything is to his command.

It is excellent that you acknowledge that.


1 Timothy 2
This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people.

I don't "need" signs. I "need" what you say to be true, then I'll believe what you say. See how that works?
