Hi Tim
Sounds like you are a professional like Aurino,
so your ideas are taken seriously.

You wrote:
"the nature of God is by definition beyond mankinds knowing"

Then you wrote that God's nature is "STILL"
"timeless" "unchanging" "SPIRIT"

Since you have said mankind cannot know
but apparently Tim can know God's nature, are you saying Tim is not of Mankind?

Tim wrote"
"in the affairs of mankind there is a concept called morality and it is a concept that one can easily argue about one way or the other. morality is a measure of a man's spirit. the final arbitrater of what is morale is God."

I am not convinced God cares at all about morality. (S)He said "Thou Shalt Not Kill" in the Jewish 10 Commandments. But on the radio I hear the Jewish talk show hosts cheering for mega-bomb war alternately with spouting their views on everyone else's morality. Morality is
a fairly slimy and disreputable word compared to
TRUTH. In fact, it is a word often used by folks for whom TRUTH is the worst enemy. (Present company excepted, I hope)

Anyway, if God is unchanging, I don't se how
(S)He can stir Himself to arbitrate anything.
Action cannot be performed without changing

What say you now?
