I think I will repost to you what I posted to MapDark (c:<quoted text>
I have had some of those happen, and I suspect all do. I think I wrote a post about that a day or two ago. In all of the millions of things that happen over the course of your life, there will be some strange coincidences.
The fact that you had the ones you mentioned though, doesn't tell you that God was the acting force in you having those experiences, or does it? What if there is some telepathic skills that we have not yet discovered where humans can think of someone and the other person thinks of them at the same time, because some message has been passed unnoticed between them, that they were not even aware of.
I don't endorse that idea, but it is certainly one that some people talk about, and does not necessitate the existence of a god, or more specifically the God of the Bible.
It most certainly could not be shown as verified proof that God exists.
I don't know who the message is for- them or you- or a lurker -But I am sure I should repost. My mind formed this after our talk.
"Was thinking after I left my key board earlier~ Many people (me included for awhile) try and blame God for the bad choices of what people have done. If we blame God then we are letting mankind off the hook- and we think ourselves are off the hook too....from having to hear from God. God IS still God no matter what we think we know.... A sin against Him is still a sin -even when we wont hear it or believe He is there.
You probably don't know me or my history here at topix- but I tend to 'preach ' to Christians and non Christians alike- about personal accountability. I am writing to you because I feel it on my heart that YOU have some very personal things which have affected your belief.-My faith makes me advance in this conversation.- I do not ask you to share them here- but I am compelled to ask you to reflect on those things~ relfect on what you USED to think was His truths- before you stopped the progression into real faith. What was done to you and what choices did you make in order to feel like you escaped the 'god' thing? Think on what has transpired in your life since then. Have you healed from the offenses or do they gnaw at you- so that you feel like you have to defend your position here?~*~ God not only DOES heal the wounded which have been victims of people wrong choices. HE is willing to HEAL the offender ! That dear one is proof that GOD is~ A MAN made god would offer NO hope to the offenders."
