Again, making no attempt to sound condescending whatsoever, it seems, to me, that unfortunately, you were deceived by the same erroneous beliefs that many believers are deceived by. I had mentioned something relatively close to what I'm referring to, I believe, yesterday.
If I can remember correctly, I had mentioned, on Facebook, that I was frustrated with people, in general. It seems, to me, that as this world hurls into chaos and destruction, that everyone seems to be waiting for someone, or something, to remedy the world's problems. "Christians" await the return of Christ. Muslims are waiting for their Mahdi with Christ in tow. And unbelievers, generally, are, most likely, waiting on science. Everyone seems to be waiting, though. All wait with little to no action. And when someone does something remotely "righteous," the media can't help but exaggerate the event because righteousness, it seems, is that rare and unheard of. And everybody continues waiting. Now, how does this pertain to what I'm talking about?
You waited on "God" to respond. You waited on "God" to intervene. You did, most likely, what you were trained and indoctrinated to do. Wait. But, "God" doesn't work that way. As I said one time before, not too long ago. If we want strength, "God" will provide us with circumstances that will strengthen us. If we want knowledge, "God" will provide us with situations that should cause us to use our critical thinking skills. Whatever it it we want, we'll have to work for it. If sounds, to me my friend, that you gave "God" an ultimatum. "Either, shake the heavens and instruct me with lightnings and thunders, or I'm out'a here!" Of course, I'm assuming right now, but I can't but think that that might have been the issue. And with that being said, the fact that you even began to question "God's" existence at such a young age proves that even you didn't have too many "good" examples to assist in your spiritual development.
I apologize if I've used any "Christian-speak" in my post to you. I'm just trying to build a platform, if you don't mind. I mean, if you could utilize your power of thought to decide that "God" doesn't exist, then just maybe I can provoke the opposite. Or, at least cause you to think that just maybe, you had horrible teachers!
[ The Lamb Takes the Scroll ] And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back(spine), sealed with seven seals.
har the "child"
armageddon = har = mount, mountain, hill
suffer the little children to come unto me.
and a child(lamb) shall lead them
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them.
for the Child who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
