...How could I say there is no God...when all around creation calls...a singing bird, a mighty tree...the vast expanse of an open sea...

Magnificent

I see dead trees here in the Northwest. A bug is getting to them, killing off huge swaths of forest. I see birds covered in oil and turtles dying, gasping for breath. I see satellites used for monitoring and manipulating large portions of the planet. I watch cars kill butterflies. I see dying children in Africa, hunched over and skeletal, while Americans eat burgers and praise God.

Etc. Etc.

I'm feeling a little, ummm, cynical. Sorry, Verna. That was rude. I'll try to get better. I promise.

Maybe I should take a break from the boards. (and my head)

All things that are known to occur naturally. No 'god' required.

Yes, beautiful creation all around us, if we will but stop a moment to look. I love that video! Blessed are those who see as God sees...

Well, your point is well taken. Is it any wonder that there are so many who do not believe when, as the world is crumbling, so many people carrying the name of God on their lips are "praising God" with the same mouth that they are condemning those who are suffering from all the destruction that the evil one has brought upon the Creation. If one hates his brother, his/her praise is in vain and a stench in God's nostrils. Your anger is justified and your indignation righteous. Nothing makes me more nauseous than to hear the self-righteous do their praise in public for all to see. It's like praying in public. Jesus said DON"T do it.

Thank you Verna... God's beautiful creation...created just for you and I out of his "LOVE".

Paradise lost from Adam's fall...through "Christ Our Saviour" Paradise will be restored.

Genesis 1:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

Today...you shall be with me in PARADISE!

I BELIEVE...I BELIEVE...I BELIEVE...
