: :Wise men still seek Him. :-) : ---------- : Everyone has at one time or another sought God (yes, even atheists. Especially atheists, I'd say). The question is whether or not he's found (or chooses to be found if he exists). : An assertion in its self is meaningless. It must be supported by evidence.

: Apparently, you see enough proofs that you believe that there is a God. : I however, don't. The bible is ridden with contradictions, and describes a God that is also contradicted. Such errors make it seem like it was written by men, not God. : Plus, there are many many many other religions in the world. What has singled out Christianity for you? What makes it more convincing than buddhism, hinduism, judaism, islam, etc. etc.

: The world is full of injustice. Clearly you believe that God will one day rectify all ills. This has yet to occur. What's he (an all powerful deity, in which all is possible) waiting for? :Earl here: Without typing and retyping a lot of things I've already stated on this forum, seeing I'm being pegged as a cut and paste, which, if I say things over and over it's not that I'm going in circles, it's that it makes perfectly good sense to me, and I can't see how in the world anyone could not believe in Jesus Christ who is the answer for all you seek. Evolution and athiesm is ridden with contradictions, Ive mentioned below of how I never want to see athiest die, its not confusing to me, but is upsetting why so many people choose the broad way that leads to destruction..like Jesus said and many will go in there at" to quote a statement. Who are we to ask God Almighty why He did things the way He did? As long as we are not contending with Him or come to Him in arrogance, He said "Come let us reason together, tho your sins be as scarlet they shall be white as snow" ITs God who says we are in sin and going to hell, I'm just a man, it's God who said we have to accept Jesus as Lord of our lives, every word Jesus spoke was from the Father ......He makes the rules and sets the bounds, we are flesh and will die shortly, then what? It is appointed unto men once to die , then the judgement...did I say that? No, I'm quoting that from the Bible. Is the Bible in fact the Word of God? I certainly think and believe so, because there is proofs of Jesus resurrection from the dead after 3 days, theres proofs that he died on the cross, if the Bible is understood, all 66 books point toward a Messiah that was to come and die and raise again, why would so many prophets down thru the ages, like Moses, David, Hezekiah, Solomon, Daniel, Isaiah, write so many like prophecies of the future of the world, and the coming Christ. Moses wrote the first books of the Bible, in Hebrew. The apostles of Christ wrote the new testament. I wish I could persuade you, but that is up to God. All I know is that if men seek him they will find Him, Him being Jehovah, God of Isaac, Jacob, and Abraham, The I AM that I AM, Alpha and Omega. If men keep a humble heart and open mind and come to The Lord they will have no problem finding Him, for He will make His self known to those of broken spirit and contrite heart. We have to come as a child, God hates arrogance and pride which was the root sin of lucifer. He is right next to us, even at our lips, when we say, I believe, I accept. I give up my self to Him I don't care what men say, what men teach, what theories there are from our small intelligence, I just want to know this King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, who created all things. You will then be looking into the face of Jesus Christ. That's the only way to find God Almighty, The Father of all life and every living thing. Soon Christ will return and sort out the wheat from the tares, the evil from the good, and the evil will be done away with in the lake of fire, and only the good will be left, only Christ can do that, we can't do it. It will take the Lords power and wisdom to do that, all who believe and follow Him will be given life eternal with him, the rest is chaff cast into the fire which is unquenchable and where the worm dies not and there'll be weeping and gnashing of teeth because of the anguish of the torment of being totally separated from heaven and God. Just because a man says he's athiest don't make him a special candidate for hell, anyone who rejects Christ and Gods plan of salvation will suffer that. I don't teach sunday school right now, I did for years, as well as preached, and conducted studies, my calling is songs and writing. I don't claim to be better than anyone, in fact I kinda always had respect for everyone, no matter what the belief, I figure God sends me to whoever He'll send me and give me the words to say, tho I quote scripture a lot, I'm speaking from my heart and soul.
