Good question. Aren't Anthropologists supposed to know a bit about different cultures?

Quite a lot.
Then you realize that what you are saying in this post...

If God doesn't want something to happen, it does not happen. No matter how much man and the wannabe want it to.

http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TSHQAVD...

You have made God responsible for not only the "good" that happens but also the "bad".

What you have said...God wanted the Connecticut school shooting in December where 20 children died to happen...if what you say is true.

Every time a woman is beaten, raped, murdered...it was the will of God?

Remember you said...nothing happens unless God wants it to happen.

Does that include the people that have burned to death in fires?

People that have lost their lives defending out countries?

What about the little old people that have frozen to death because they could not afford heat?

Remember you said...nothing happens unless God wants it to happen.

I can not believe in a God that would want a child molested...a woman raped...a man tortured to death...a person starving to death for lack of food.

I can not believe in a God that would want a child born with so many birth defects...planes flown in to building killing hundreds of people...someone walking in to a school and killing 20 children.

Remember you said...nothing happens unless God wants it to happen.

I do not understand how anyone could believe in a God that wants these types of things to happen. Especially after they have thought about it quite a lot.

Yep. That is why I understand that 'captives' means slave.

Did you think they had giant POW camps ?

I don't have cable either "G". I saw no reason to pay that much money every month when I only had a few shows that I truly wanted to watch. Especially when I could watch them the next day for free.

Not having cable is not an indicator that one can not afford to have cable.

Oh...just noticed...you said "pray"ments.

Okay...carry on...unless that was a typo...then still carry on anyway.

If God is great it isn't good and of God is good it isn't great.

Extians, even ones who claim to understand the Bible, even ones who accuse Christians of not having read the Bible; often talk about the Book of Job, then display that they have no comprehension of it or the rest of the passages they use. I am not saying you are one of those extians who has spoken about Job, your very long post is just a really good example. I don't require your understanding Annie, nor do I expect it. Allowing us to do certain things of our own free will, like rebel, for example, is not the same as wanting us to rebel. If you want to blame God for the evil in humanity that is your prerogative, G blames God for ancient Egyptian practices and thinks an A.D born Christian translator invented the Babylonian trinity 'doctrine'(pagan), practiced by the Greeks of his time, which is G's prerogative. I choose God, His word and faith, which is my prerogative.

I did not blame God JL...you did by your statement that things don't happen unless God wants them to happen...that would mean the "bad" along with the "good".

No...I have never spoke of Job.

This length of my posts are as long as they need to be to get my point across. If they are too long for you then I don't see where that is my problem.

My opinion...that whatever higher power that exists...does not play us as if we are a game of chess. We are here...we control our own fate...making our own choices. I do not believe that a higher power controls all that happens...good or bad.
