Good things happen. Bad things happen. We are all responsible for our reactions to whatever happens. Any adult who expects life to be easy is a fool and creates his/her own disappointments. It is what it is and it is possible to be happy with the realities of life, even the bad ones. Life is good :-)

I think in the olden days of Christianity the threat of Hell was used to control the behavior of the herd.
Still is, imo.

Wow.
It's always been a sticking point with me, that there are not only hundreds of different 'Bibles', but thousands, maybe a million, different translations of them. The word of man is at the root of every one.
Another sticking point, is that so many folks, though they all consider themselves 'Christians', also consider their own version of Christianity to be the only 'real' one.
It seems to me, an omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent being would only need one method of communication. Otherwise, how can you call him omnipresent, omniscient, or omnipotent?

Easiest answer. He is all powerful and perfect. But look who His audience is. As I said simplest message love God love your neighbor.

Even that got all tangled up.

True but it's worse when it happens to you and your family. Just saying. "Stuff happens" was a bit cold.

But you are right it does.

This is a good example of why I personally, cannot and will NEVER believe in your version of "faith". This 'saved' shit is meaningless bullshit. I would NEVER believe in a deity that unless one is "saved" would bar them from heaven. That's not ANY g-d, that's satan.
Tonight, many dozens of people - and again, too many child victims - of MANY faiths are with G-d. My prayers go out to all the families.
It was really storming here 8000 without power.

Told hubby there s a tornado in Cooper City
They had just done one of those 10 second breaking. I misheard.

Watched the news. All that devastation. And such a big one.
God watch over them tomorrow..said it could happen again.

Hubby just told me the day care kids we thought safe in basement. 24 drowned. Water got in. Oh dear Lord bless them and their parents

Talk about 'convenient'...

His audience is HIS OWN CREATION, Rose. He punishes it for being WHAT HE CREATED.

No. I reject that 'god'.

Utterly.

He is YOUR creation, and you created him to comfort your fears of death. Glad he's working for you, but that sort of 'god' will never work for me.

Here are Just 2 pages on this site. If you search it there are lots more info.
This is not an ad
In the end of time. Heaven and the New Earth
Or Lake if fire.
This also talks about Sheol..not either place. Sort if a place of waiting
My link went to Harper. There's an ad at the bottom of the page. I mistook the ad as being the site name.

I'll check out your links later. The etymology of the word HELL shows it's too young to've been spoken by Jesus, which is the claim. The concept of being away from God is similar, but the word wasn't used to refer to it until much later.

Anyone having problems with the new outlook.com .

Think it's a beta??? For hotmail. Weird day

And on God. You can believe in Him or not. I did not invent Him .

I love Him. No other way to say it. Really.

But I respect your right to disagree. But I don't want to be a cause for negativity about Him.

and that is what I am saying. He can take it but I can't.

I try to respect everyone's beliefs. I say imo and I believe..Etc. I don't talk negative or make mocking statements to anyone's beliefs. But that's me.

If you want to talk about my beliefs and Faith. I have explained over and over. You can continue .If you all wish to.

Peace

Explaining my own beliefs, and rejecting yours, isn't mocking you - it's just my differing opinion.

If speaking about my own belief in the Divine, which IMO doesn't require us to believe in any specific way, and openly rejecting for myself the beliefs you profess, is perceived as mocking you, I apologize - because I didn't mean it that way.

If you're going to interpret my beliefs as negativity about god, and you 'can't take it', I'd probably better not continue to engage with you on this topic, because I'm not a sadist who enjoys tormenting people. Especially not folks I like.

Have a good night, Rose.

I believe in the Divine. I do not believe in your version. I posted the way I did because I was talking to someone who does worship him. I've read the bible. Several times. It doesn't change anything.
It's not loving to exile your child when you know that they will spend eternity in a place of torture that you created. There is nothing "loving" about that.
Even if my children hated me, I'd still love them, and I would never allow them to be tortured. How can you worship a being that is less compassionate than many of his own creation?
There is no "choice" when one option leads to eternal torture.
"It's not loving to exile your child when you know that they will spend eternity in a place of torture that you created. There is nothing "loving" about that."

Yet you support a woman "choosing" to kill her unborn child. Hypocrite much.

You look down your own nose at yourself!! You label yourself a sinner.....you are full of self guilt and paranoia. This is how religion traps you. Now try to convince anyone that you are happy while considering yourself a low life. Your religion makes no sense whatsoever. It instills guilt and shame at every corner, you are guilty for being born.
Tell everyone again how you hate pregnancy there lezzy.

Every sector of christianity think they will be the only ones to achieve heaven.
I find that amusing:
A man arrives at the gates of heaven. St. Peter asks, "Religion?"
The man says, "Methodist."
St. Peter looks down his list and says, "Go to Room 24, but be very quiet as you pass Room 8."
Another man arrives at the gates of heaven. "Religion?"
"Lutheran."
"Go to Room 18, but be very quiet as you pass Room 8."
A third man arrives at the gates. "Religion?"
"Presbyterian."
"Go to Room 11, but be very quiet as you pass Room 8."
The man says, "I can understand there being different rooms for different denominations, but why must I be quiet when I pass Room 8?"
St. Peter tells him, "Well, the Baptists are in Room 8, and they think they're the only ones here."
Notice that in the "joke" it is all men that enter heaven. Can't even get a woman in a religious joke.
We tried to get you in, as you are a joke of a woman but you are not religious, only a pagan. You lose.

God doesn't "work " for many, but there is no logical reason not to believe in God. Many say they believe in the big bang, but when we look at all that is, there is no way all came about out of a mess of nothing, and just so happened to fall into place. The main reason people reject God, is becouse they love their sin and want to hang onto it. They don't want to feel that they will be judged one day by anything or anyone, yet folks saying the don't believe in God, makes Him no less real.

I'm not sure what kind of god woukd suit you, but there are many to choose from, but all but one are worthless. This is a fact "I believe " regaurdless what any other believe. Aa far as facts, I personaly know many many people, that can tell you the momment they were saved by God. Not baptized, or when they joined a church, BUT SAVED BY AN INCOUNTER, WITH GOD HIMSELF. many many people, just like me, who all got saved in different places,some in a "church " some in their car, creek bank, in the yard, you name it, it happened, and is every bit as real to them as it is me :) peace.

the fact is it wasn't sarcasm. why would you provide my accurate quote? to prove something said sarcastically?
did you believe what you quoted me as saying originally is what i said or didn't you?
LMAO!! I wrote it so I KNOW it was sarcasm. Damn, your tantrums last a long time. You denied having said that it was a "debacle" and I just proved you wrong by providing your actual statement.

Actually it could be. But the other poster is wrong. Hell is mentioned a lot in the bible.
And if course Sheol which if I am mistaken was a,place..not he'll..for the righteous..But not heaven either.
The bible seems very metaphorical. Perhaps Eden was Heaven and being put out of Eden was the equivalent to being sent to Hell.
