nine, i thing i know where your coming from as to the whole hell thing. yep GOD has the toughest job on the planet. he has to decide who shall inter those pearly gates and then the sadness of those who must parish...
try looking at it this way, when i was a boy, i went to see billy the kid at the movies. man was he cool. going around robbing people, running from the law, shooting up the other bad people. i didnt want the movie to end. seemed like a real good time to me and everytime the ending was always the same, the bad guy got killed, meaning billy.
i would sit there and think, i wonder what would happen if billy, jesse and frank james, wild bill and all the others were to get away and never get shot. i mean they made these guys look and sound real cool, just out having a little fun right.
then one day it dawned on me, these guys would have gone on killing and stealing until no one was left but bad guys. the bad guys only look good when the good guys make them out to be. the truth is back in those days when someone robed a bank, the people never did get thier money bank. they had to wait until next year and plant twnice as much to repay the loan from the bonnie and cydle last run thru town. when people die people cry long after the next sceen. the next 20 years, birthdays, christmas, and just the regular family get togethers don't seem the same.
if i had a GOD that didn't grasp this i would be deeply saden. we has a people are not smart enough to understand perfect justice, but from GOD's point of view, seeing the inside of a man, he can and will produce said justice. he is more than willing to reason with them, but at some point the talking must stop and justice prevale. the bible atates GOD's atempt to reason with this type. he said i put you in prison hoping to give you time to think and change your ways. he uses all types of juctice to slow down a person allowing them time to think their actions thru. nothing seems to work on some types. a all loving GOD is the last thing this type understands, they see it as weakness, not love.
GOD also states, what one does with what he makes is up to the maker. clay in a clay workers hands, i believe it goes. this is why it is so important to read the entire book, he explains such things. in some places the bible comes off as hard and unfair, but we are missing alot of the facts. GOD does this on purpose. leaving the reader with things to think about and ponder.
mary herself said, when the angels came and told her she was going to have the son of GOD, she pondered it. well i wonder how she took it 3 months later as she began to show and then into the 7 month as this life began to move inside her. i don't know about yall, but i would be doing some serous pondering! what the heck is going? i have not layed with a man, yet this bady is real. these are the parts i would love to read.
i and a few others have had such happening, let me tell you how it went for me. everyone and thier brother said the devil had me and all i had was these angels who kept coming, day in and day out. fear is not the right word, it's like a roller coster ride that you can't get off of. i wanted so bad to talk with someone about the happening, but every time i did, i lost another friend and those who were not friends became my enemy, much like what you see happening on here. i understand people fear and it's justified on some level, but the most any of us can do is pray. you can only pray so long, then you have to get up and try to get on with your life, yet these angels make that almost an impossable task.
it's like being robbed day after day and you cant call the police. the police will come and lock you up after about the third call. they want proof! well mr police man, sorry i don't have any, the stuff was here yesterday and now it gone. catch my drift, it's the biggest catch 22 in the book. well folks that's my life, didn't ask for any of it, but to hear these guys talk you would think i planned it all out and for what to become what, rich?, famous? are you kidding me. it hasn't brought me any friends yet and from the looks of things it going to get a lot worse. enough about me.
what's going on with any of you? got any questions? i got a couple of hours. throw it at me...
