Thanks Phet!
I actually had a look! Annoyingly often when I look something up I find it's what some rock bands has used as a name.

Maybe your employee is just "testing" your faith..........?

or maybe your employee just works in "mysterious ways" and by him going to the beach it will provide a better outcome in the long run?

If he did, then the argument could be made that at least the NT was the "word of god". But no one is making that claim. Instead, we have this game of telephone, and things were written forty to 100 years after the supposed incidents.

Jesus as god really didn't think this one out, did he?
oh I think he did just fine as fur.....well he was smart enough to create angels to do the grunt work more like robots... so he needs NO robots.
and has asked men to be his partners thus leaving them room for their own contributions........ instead of being a micromanager , control freak like people you might call smart enough to be a "God" or "god like" isn't his idea about humanity .. obviously.. I mean he saved Paul as his translator....

isn't that kind of a robot maker your concept of a God and the son of God ? say like a professor or president of a college and thus a judging and grading ... micromanager?
yep I bet you think they are smarter than Jesus .. why because they told you they were?
Actually I believe Jesus was Tesla bring men electricity , because they couldn't do that themselves.. and He proved to be the smartest man on earth for any age.. neither was Tesla a micromanager of anyone else ... He even let greedy men steal his work and did not fret that either.

as he stated..

“Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine”

― Nikola Tesla

and only God himself would be worried about this..

“I don't care that they stole my idea . . I care that they don't have any of their own”

― Nikola Tesla

so you saying that Jesus as Tesla was stupid? NO .. his predictions are still coming true..and yes he could write too..
