Itís always a pleasure to talk to you my good Doctor.<quoted text>So your god apparently loves the idea of human sacrifice, yes? He could see no other way for Israel to become a nation without the sacrifice of millions of men women and totally innocent children? This all powerful God of your who loves us dearly, a God that has no limits to what he can do, chose to sit idly by and watch millions of his prized creation perish in most horrible ways. REALLY??? I guess he just loves human sacrifice, what other possible reason could there be for him NOT find an alternative to the suffering, torture and death of millions of Jews.
Answered prayer eh......must we do the whole millions of amputees who's prayers were NEVER EVER answered?
Just a story, but kind of telling.......A man went everyday to pray for his sick wife. He went to a massive statue of Christ on the cross to pray. Everyday for a year he prayed, but his poor wife died anyway. After her death he asked the parish priest if he could clean the statue as it was neglected over the years. he was given permission and on his first day of cleaning the statue, it toppled over on him crushing him to death. He apparently lived for a few hours in horrible agony before he died. Yeah, I know....."Who ca know the mind of God"........God works in mysterious ways" Standard replies when all reason and logic fail.
The first mistake the troubled soul did was to bow down to a stone image. A violation of the ten commandments. The second mistake was trying to clean it.
Now my good Doctor why God let so many die in WWII is beyond me. These wars were the act of mad men and nations run amuck. The fact remains from this horrible cost a nation rises out of the ashes in 1948.
A nation because of itís past, is determined to fight anyone who threatens it. Israel is not going away nor will it allow itself to be pushed into the sea. It is a legitimate nation and all her enemies need to get over it.
King James Version (KJV)
20 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
King James Version (KJV)
26 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God.
