This guy is no Christian... He`s not even a man.
For the record I`m not saying that I`m just gonna accept what people tell me and then say, "It`s a matter of faith." I like to think for myself and find out as much as I can, but a part of it is acceptance that I don`t know everything about God, I wasn`t there at the beginning of eternity, I cannot possibly have God`s perspective. There is a level of acceptance that I would need if I DIDN`T believe in God. After all, you can`t understand everything about the Universe, either.
The book of Job deals with this issue.
It`s not the most popular book of the bible, but it deals with this question. Basically, when Job questions God about what he has been put through, God replies, "Where were you at the beginning of eternity? Until you know a little more about being God, don`t think you can possibly understand my motivations and tell me how to do my job."
Probably not the most popular book in the bible. But the point is, how can you think God should or should not do?It`s fair enough that you don`t believe in him. I respect that.
Also, as for organised religion, while I`m Catholic, I believe I should let others believe what THEY want to believe. I think its better to believe and there NOT being a God at the end, than not to believe and there being a God, in which case I`m fu (ked.:)
Many different possibilities have been tried to answer this paradox; from the questioning of God`s perception of time (ex. does God really have precognizance, or does he view time in a perpetual present), to our our simply not understanding His motivation, to almost everything in between.
This debate about divine precognizance vs free will has existed for a loooong time, and I`m pretty sure all of the angles have been pretty well covered since the Nicene convention.
"There is nothing new under the sun."
Redemption from what? Doing exactly what an all knowing God knew you were going to do, make mistakes, before he created you and sending you to an eternity of suffering if you don`t believe? Sounds fair.
Call it what you want. It`s human sacrifice to pay for the sins of the world and it`s barbaric. It`s retarded that an all-powerful god can`t just forgive people without the use of a middle man.
I have a friend who is a scientist and she was a missionary child.
But what`s that got to do with her grasp of physics, or chemistry, or genetics, or any area of science?
Before you start talking about scientists and Christians look up Georges Lematre.

He didn`t even had the dignity, value or whatever you wanna call it to just hire a hoker, he would ask the parents, that`s just crazy.
This is a really fuc0ed up world and each minute it gets worse
Look at the numerous cases just like this one, including (just to name a few), sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests, Über-Evangelist Pastor Ted Haggard and his penchant for drugs and sex from rent-boys, or the long-term repeated sexual and physical abuse of orphaned children at the hands of the Christian Brothers
wow, that`s just... pathetic. on so many levels.
hidden cameras and microphones ftw!
btpanther, I was JUST thinking that. lol.
Man, what a skeeze...
And yeah, I started laughing at the words "Titty Play". I`ve watched alot of porn and have not once heard those two magical words come from anybody`s mouth.
"I`m talking about f*cking you.""We can together for some titty play.""You might like whatcha gettin`."
Lol. That Sentence Is Better Than This Whole Video.But I Believe The Catholics Are The Ones That Do That. o_O
