Oh. So you regularly take things out of context for the keywords? Is this how you quote scripture too?
BTW, you still haven't answered the question who created Satan.
You still have not answered the question, why do good people or parents of humble backgrounds, give births to hooligants, murderers, killers, and the likes?

We see a lot of the word "if" in the Bible when we are considering blessings from God. A nation that turns to abomination can suffer great calamity because God can no longer bless such an evil. Every one will suffer if a nation is lead away from the true God of the Bible and it is partly the chosen leaderships fault. It is not a light matter when a nation that has called upon the blessings of God throughout history instead turns to fleshly desires and forgets where our strength came from in the first place. The divine hand of God has been upon America and we have been blessed because of our God fearing people of the past. It is about the blessings from the one true God, and IF we humble ourselves and repent then he is able to heal us, but if people continue to be stiff necked they will be brought down.

I'm not trying to sound stupid I believe this to be a lagit question for the evolutionists out there. If human evolution is true and man has been around millions if not billions of years evolving slowly through all this time than shouldn't their be proof in the fossil record shouldn't paleontologists be digging up protohuman bones all over the earth finding small colonies of remains? Where is the missing link? Oh and also if evolution is absolute why would Human evolution followed such a different path from all others if man comes from ape than why are their still apes?

Darwin was stupid to disbelieve in divine creation in the first place.

But you already stated a standard of proof for the bible. There are mentioned some ancient cities in there and you say that is evidence for truth.

But if I point out some factual things in the Harry Potter books, that's not good enough for consideration of a holy gospel?

What if I seal the Harry Potter books in some clay jars to be discovered 1000 years later, would that make them eligible to be holy gospels?

I seem to recall Israel was "God's Chosen People" and God in its mercy let them be destroyed. I don't suppose it was because the ancient Israelites like to wage war and genocide. As long as they were winning, God's favor. If they lost, they sinned or the enemy had chariots of iron.

Since there's no passage in the Bible that says the United States of America is the Chosen People, we don't really have a chance now, do we?

Or is the US blessed because we have the largest Jewish population outside of Israel?

God created Lucifer. That Lucifer renamed him self, satan, because he was and is still an opposer of God.
Some of our kids, sisters, brothers, uncles, nieces, nephews, aunts, friends, etc, do that.

If you'd read anything other than apologetics, you might already know your answers. Start here to learn:

http://www.talkorigins.org/indexcc/list.html#...

Who knows. You may read some of that stuff and actually be delighted to hear about discoveries and look forward to the next one.

Or you can continue to wallow in doom and gloom and fear and guilt and pretending life is fun just as the bible tells you to do.

Did not God know what his own creation would do?

Or did god purposefully introduce such an evil into the world?

Oh, so now you want to invoke science since it might back up your claim.

If God knew for sure what choices his creation would make, then why would he allow them to be tempted? THINK!

So you are saying that your God is not omniscient or omnipotent. Well, I guess that is a start.
