I pray to God everyday for peace and safety for me, my family and our nation. If you choose to not believe or serve God that's you're choice. I wish I could say or do something to change the minds of those that don't believe. That being said I don't hate or dislike you. Actually I'm here for you if you have questions or maybe want to know something about the bible or why I believe. May God bless y'all!

Its not a 'choice'. I can't choose to believe in something that has no evidence and makes no sense. I know plenty about the bible. Most atheists know it better than most Christians. Thats why they are atheists lol.

I'm trying to understand prayer. First, god supposedly has a 'divine plan'. Why pray if its predetermined? Secondly, isn't begging someone to not be abused self-depreciating yourself as a human being?

Give me one Fact that you have any idea what you are saying..I really hope someone shuts this website down this is just trashhy talk to keep people thinking bad things and slandering people and all the other trash that goes on here. If we spent more time doing good onto others no matter what you worship then we would be better period!! Since you think GOD is not real then my friend I guess you should not argue about someone that is not real to you. I guess something bothers you about GOD! try not to argue about something you say is not real. Go check out a congregation anywhere you choose and try to learn about something beside degrading babble.

<quoted text>He has the power to stop them but he chose not to? So what do you think your prayers will accomplish? God allowed kids to be killed and now you think he's going to bring their families "peace" because you asked him to?

You people are nuts.
Remember what happened to the 1st born of the Egyptians? That's where Passover comes from. The Israelites took blood from a lamb and put on their door to let the angel of death know they were Gods ppl and were safe!
Pharaoh had 10 plagues put on his ppl but still refused to release the Israelites. When God had the 1st born of the Egyptians killed that night pharaoh let them go but hardened his heart once again and we all no what happened after that. Moses parted the sea and the army of Pharaoh drowned!
Point is we all need to be washed today(by the blood of the lamb,Christ) and repent and get this country back to a moral & God fearing nation!

<quoted text>So the 24 people who were killed in the tornado yesterday are now burning in hell for eternity unless they had made a conscious decision to "accept Christ" before about 4:00pm yesterday.

Sounds like a just and loving god to me. Thank you Jesus for keeping the riff raff out of heaven.
He is a loving God. And you really shouldn't judge these 24. Only God knows their heart. Satan is behind all the disasters and terrible deaths, even the children's deaths! God just allowed it. Why? IDK! I can't read his mind. Look what Job went through? God allowed that. He says so in the book. You're not a idiot I think you may be afraid of the truth. God loves you also.

I use to go to church but I quit several years ago for a lot of reasons...main one was because the same people I saw in church that was so warm & loving there wouldn't slow down for a stranger in the street....also because I was raised in believing in a loving God but all I see on here is a vengful God....sorry but I don't like that one, I liked the one I use to know.
Look where our nation is heading! Abortion, same sex marriage, anti Israel president, throwing God out of schools and public places! My goodness the DEM party booed God at their convention! He is a loving God, but, a jealous and vengeful God also.

Not sure I understand the abused part. The divine plan is salvation in heaven with God for eternity. What's wrong with living a good moral peaceful life? Just suppose that you are wrong, just for a minute, c'mon now!lol
Is it worth being in torment for eternity? Now suppose you're right and I'm wrong, what's wrong with living Christ like?

I thought Jesus said to "love your enemies". For God so loved the world that he killed a bunch of Egyptian babies.

And you're going to pretend this makes sense. THAT'S what is wrong with America!

Use your brain morons!

Ask for one fact and you get dribble, if you need a fantasy to help you through life have it. Some of us won't just go on blind faith like the folks on this page. I already knew the answer before I asked the question. What kind of god would let his people kill each other all over the planet, not one a sane person would follow, answer that question.

That was under the old law. When Jesus came he preached peace and love. Rem the women who commuted adultery? He didn't have her stoned.

Well all I can say is we're held accountable for the choices we make. It started in the garden and is still goin on today. The bible talks about all this. Satan is ruling the world rite now(1 John 5:19). It's up to us as a person,ppl, n nation to repent.

<quoted text>It's wrote?

The happiest countries in the world are also the least religious. Look at Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. Those nations have certainly "turned their backs on god" more than we have. Do they have tornados and earthquakes and other symptoms of god's wrath?

It's called critical thinking. You should try it sometimes.
IDK if they do or not. I'm not there but ill promise you one thing if they don't repent they will feel the wrath!

See, I knew you would pretend this makes sense. So the nature of God changed from one who killed his enemies to one who loves his enemies? So when did "love your enemies" go into effect? When Jesus uttered the words? When he was born? When the Jesus embryo was miraculously implanted into Mary?

And you'll claim that evolution doesn't make sense!

Arguing with a christian is like playing chess with a pigeon. It doesn't matter how good at chess we are, the pigeon is just going to crap all over the board, knock over all the pieces and strut around like it won.

no 'who' created anything as far as we can tell. we have evidence back to the big bang. before that who knows. what propesies have came true? all i have seen is vague prophesies that mean nothing (christians will be persecuted) or were foretold and fulfilled within the same book (story of the messiah)

a woman controlling her own body, being allowed to mary who you love, being against a country that should never have been created, and keeping religion out of government as the law says are GOOD things. do you stand against everything right in the world?

jealous and vengeful? doesnt sound like a supreme being but a spoiled child.
