Good evening "Gtown71."
This is one of those instances where I find myself grinding my teeth, and cracking my knuckles in exasperation with regards to the "Logic" folks like yourself tend to employ.
If you're confused I'll boil it down...
If the ultimate scenario was that God wants everyone to "Come-to-Him," but gives everyone "Free-Will," to choose to do so or not, that I'd understand...and agree with.
The addition of God being Omniscient, and Omnipotent, more or less effectively "negates" God's bestowing "Free-Will" on his "creations."
If He already knows what they're going to do, how they're going to choose, what they're going to "think, and feel" before they do, then that renders the concept of "Free-Will" meaningless.
The "creation" might believe that they're acting out of their own "choice" but, since their actions are already "known," their pathway is already "predetermined."
Unless God is not Omnipotent, then the concept of an Omniscient God doesn't make a whole lot of sense--the concept of such a God who already knows the outcomes of someone's life, but deliberately "chooses" not to "act" on it simply doesn't add up.
"Free-Will" is the ability to do what is not "foreseen..."
Ok - I get your point, and can understand your frustration. You've atleast arrived at a place few go, and there is no answer to the question. God was, is, and ever will be. He knows all things, past, present, future, but "we" don't.

So John I'll ask you this, would you be willing to simply go anywhere quite, and sit, bow, stand, whatever, and with all that is in you, ask God to reveal Himself to you. Now you must be willing to give up any and all that He would want you to. You must be willing to do anything He wants you to. Are you willing?

Do you not think that if there was a God who flung the stars out, and named each one, and created all, that He don't have the power to answer you, if you approach this God, the way one must. Just as you are. He's not impressed with how "good" you've been. He's not depressed with how "bad" you've been. According to His Word, He's impressed with those who are willing to put their all on what His Son did for them.

I could ask you where did God come from?
Where did the dot that exploded come from?
How does the sun burn and burn but never burn up, for thousands of years. Millions or billions, if you believe some teaching., which is way more impressive.
Some things have no answer, atleast to us.

Have you ever just tried God?
Talk, rant, rage, whatever man. Don't you think God can handle anything?

I sometimes think God would rather see a sincere guy cursing like no tomorrow, than a fake cookie cutter christian.

He looks at the heart of "man" and will know if you mean business or not.

There are some that believe you are either going to hell or heaven, and there is nothing you can do about it. I'm not one of those people.

God is looking for someone real.
People are looking for someone real!

Very very very few people are real, or stay real very long.
I would tell you the shape the "christian" church is in, but you already know.:( good luck.

It's such a sad story...none of them become bacon or ham.

Yes of course, and more importantly:
Once upon a time there were three little pigs and the time came for them to leave home and seek their fortunes.
Before they left, their mother told them " Whatever you do , do it the best that you can because that's the way to get along in the world.
The first little pig built his house out of straw because it was the easiest thing to do.
The second little pig built his house out of sticks. This was a little bit stronger than a straw house.
The third little pig built his house out of bricks.
One night the big bad wolf, who dearly loved to eat fat little piggies, came along and saw the first little pig in his house of straw. He said "Let me in, Let me in, little pig or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!"
"Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the little pig.
But of course the wolf did blow the house in and ate the first little pig.
The wolf then came to the house of sticks.
"Let me in ,Let me in little pig or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in" "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the little pig. But the wolf blew that house in too, and ate the second little pig.
The wolf then came to the house of bricks.
" Let me in , let me in" cried the wolf
"Or I'll huff and I'll puff till I blow your house in"
"Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin" said the pigs.
Well, the wolf huffed and puffed but he could not blow down that brick house.
But the wolf was a sly old wolf and he climbed up on the roof to look for a way into the brick house.
The little pig saw the wolf climb up on the roof and lit a roaring fire in the fireplace and placed on it a large kettle of water.
When the wolf finally found the hole in the chimney he crawled down and KERSPLASH right into that kettle of water and that was the end of his troubles with the big bad wolf.
The next day the little pig invited his mother over . She said "You see it is just as I told you. The way to get along in the world is to do things as well as you can." Fortunately for that little pig, he learned that lesson. And he just lived happily ever after!
Ilove stories and it appears you do also!

Ps - good evening John.
We share the same name, but are very different.
For one, I've read you post and it's clear to me, that you are way more educated, better at writing, etc than I.
I also have a great respect for you and your post! For what it's worth.
I also respect many others (christian)(non christian)(pro)(not pro) abortion folks.
I realize this is suppose to be an abortion topic, and I've said my peace on it, but abortion is no bigger sin then many others.
Like I said God's not impressed with how "good" someone is.
He's not depressed, with how "bad" someone is.
All "ALL" "All" have gone their own "OWN" WAY.
You give a small child a small list of "thou shalt nots "and see how long it takes them to break them.
We don't like having any authority over us. Some more than others, but no one like being told what we should do.
People that smoke, simply do not care what any thinks. They know it's bad, they know it stinks to others, they will stop if they want to.
Use any example here, drugs, booze, eating way to much, people don't care.
God does. Yet this God set up all things to be ran in a certain order. He will not violate that order.
Thank God I'm saved!
Thank God He saved me.
Thank God He saved me by grace through faith alone, since I have either thought or done enough Sin since the day I was saved, to merit Hell. So has all who has been saved any length of time, if they would just think about it a sec.
Problem there, is many if not most never view their sin as being near like others :)
Much respect bro. Please keep reading, and question all men. If I'm wrong, then I'm wrong. I will admit it.
Becouse I can be wrong!
Yet there are a few things that I am not wrong about, and those are life most important things.
If I miss cut a wood board, it may cost me alittle money, according to the rarity of the wood, but if I miss out on God, it would cost me everything.
My story is unique and I tell it truthfully.
I was saved, and didn't know it.
I did start to have a deep desire to read a Bible, and hate all of my sin, and go to a church "any church", and didn't want to curse anymore, get drunk or high, look at porn, anythinh badI loathed over night!!!
Now please don't get me wrong -I didn't wake up perfect in every way, and haven't been perfect, but my soul was and is.
There is, and forever will be a part of me, that never desires evil, but only desires good. Yet I am still within this thing called the flesh, that only desires evil.
Atleast I now have the power "through " God, to say no, to things that in the past I couldn't.
Satan had a ring in my nose and he pulled the string.
Satan pulls many of his into what we consider extremely evil things
yet he also will pull one into drugs and booze, only to pull them through rehab, and get them sober, without God, so they or rehab gets the glory.
Those who have the Son hath life.
those who don't, don't.
Those who fall on "THE ROCK" will be broken.
Those who "THE ROCK" falls on will be ground to powder.
Not talking about the wrestler either. Lol

Neither does the bible story.

Bacon and ham will burn up completely.

Many have trouble with the teachings of Hell.

I don't like Hell either, but one could look at the sun as a place that burns and burns, but never burns out.

Souls apparently live forever. Somewhere.

If you even considered that there was a God, would you "be willing" to give up all, or anything that God deemed evil?

Excellent point!
Being that the fetus worshippers are lead by religious dogma it appears they believe( perhaps unconsciously) that women/girls are only worth what they can produce. This appears to be the case in scripture:
1 Timothy 2:15
Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
Exactly. And yet the militant religionists can't seem to figure out why so many women have REJECTED the toxic baggage of gods, religions and churches. Go figure, right?:-)

Yep. More single women with good jobs/careers, and the financial independence that goes along with it, are not willing to give up their freedom to be a guy's UNPAID housekeeper.

That's what some of these religionist guys are still pissed about; the idea that they have to do their OWN housework and cooking when the "little woman" should be doing it all instead.@@

She THEN makes a statement "the victims of evil don't get to choose" as if were from the heart.

No, the "medical world" does NOT say "life begins at conception", considering that "conception" is defined as either fertilization OR implantation. It's a useless term.
Be sure to put on your tin foil hat, Oh Paranoid One.
Pregnancy tests today are made to predict pregnancy from early on. The woman finds out that she is pregnant(with child,her offspring has been conceived)by day 7 approx during the period of time implantation begins and that is because once implantation occurs(the embryo)implants into the womb,the placental tissue begins to secrete the hormone hCG.

The process of life has already began prior to that moment and will continue even once that baby is born.

It's not a "useless term" by any means.

You believe that abortion evil. That's your opinion and you're welcome to it. Even you must understand that many, many people do not believe that abortion is wrong, much less evil, which is a concept flung around by fundies for anything that they don't happen to agree with. I was once called evil because I do hospice nursing.
