 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29553238


God has lots of built-in excuses.
Epicurus was right.

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29916813


Humans are quite inventive in their excuses and in creating a god in their own image. And then when this created-god falls short of their created expectations, then we get words like those of Epicurus.
 Quoting: Life and Love


Almost as inventive as the loving God of the bible and the concept of free will. Regardless of whether or not people have free-will, God is supposed to already know everything before and after it happens. I believe this constitutes for his omniscience? But if that's true, He knew this kid (as well as all the other psychos) was going to commit mass murder. And, being that God is the creator of all life, He not only knew this but he created him anyway.

Religion and its fundamentalists do not make sense. In fact, if anything is an excuse, it is religion itself, because it takes the burden off of everyone's own life and allows them to look elsewhere from their own responsibilities.

Re: Where was your God when that evil bastard killed those babies?
God is not a liar. He said evil would increase to levels seen when He wiped out humanity with the flood. It is prophecized in the bible, and therefore it has to happen.

If he intervened it would never come to full completion. Sad yes, but a sign of mankind's turn to evil.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25512421


Were animals evil too? Did they deserve to die. All flesh was corrupt except for Noah and his sons. Noah's DNA was pure. We were altered. The sons of god mated with women, producing the Nephilim. They didn't just alter humanity though. They altered everything. Animals too. Remember the centaurs and other half-man/half-beast creatures of Greek myth? They probably weren't myth at all but remnants of past history. That is why there was a great flood. After the flood, God promised not to do it again. So once more, we are being altered and once more the depravity of man knows no bounds.

Re: Where was your God when that evil bastard killed those babies?
First of all, my GOD was on his throne where he belongs!!! And if Christians ever get their act together he will remain there.
But the real question is WHERE WERE YOU? You have the ability and audacity to question GOD because you are so intelligent and talented. How come you didn't create some program or some law that would have kept this from happening? You want to question GOD? LOL

Let me educate you....

God gave us an instruction book for LIFE on this planet. He wanted us to have LIFE and have it ABUNDANTLY. He wanted us to be FRUITFUL and MULTIPLY. Those were the plans.
BUT SATAN/LUCIFER screwed it up. The bible clearly states that WAR broke out in HEAVEN. Well, the problem with that is that everything that happens in HEAVEN happens HERE (AS ABOVE SO BELOW). You have heard about WAR, right?
Ok, so we are supposed to go by the book to win this WAR. The only problem is only a small percentage of the people are using the book and/or taking it seriously.

So here we are in a WAR and half of the soldiers don't want to show up!!! They want to party with the other side.. THE ENEMY.. SATAN/LUCIFER.
Jesus said "For he that is NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US". So if you are AGAINST GOD you have clearly picked your side.

Don't ask where was GOD? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON?

God but winds us up and sets us on the ground...we decide where we go...

Everything in the world works toward a perfect end determined by God. It is our task to seek to do his good will. The trouble is when we insert our own self desires and frailties.

This moment is a fork in the road for the U.S.

Will we become entrenched in our divisions?

Will we be guided by fear?

Will we choose to do good or bad?

Or will we turn toward the light and forge ahead seeking peace and healing and love?

Where is your blame for satan and his minions? They are the workers of iniquity. Your reasoning ability is severly hampered. God welcomed those children home. Why is your heart so black that you blame the blameless and let go the assassin? Shame on you!!!!

Typical....kick God out of everything, deny Him any place in the lives of mankind, take Him out of schools and churches and then say the evil that mankind allowed to fill the void proves God doesn't exist.

He gave mankind free will. Many chose to lock Him out and then cry when bad things happen....like they let Him in to stop it???

The absence of God means the presence of evil. It's one or the other....PERIOD.

96 The fifth order, they rejoice that they have now escaped what is corruptible and shall inherit what is to come; and besides they see the straits and toil from which they have been delivered, and the spacious liberty that they are to receive and enjoy in immortality.

97 The sixth order, when it is shown them how their face is to shine like the sun, and how they are to be made like the light of the stars, being incorruptible from then on.

98 The seventh order, which is greater than all that have been mentioned, because they shall rejoice with boldness, and shall be confident without confusion, and shall be glad without fear, for they press forward to see the face of him whom they served in life and from whom they are to receive their reward when glorified.

While it may not make any sense today, I must believe that everything that happens occurs exactly as it is suppose to happen.

I agree, the death of these children makes no sense to me, but in order to remain sane, I must believe their is a much bigger plan than I am aware of. Does my heart ache for the children that were killed & the families that are trying to cope with their losses? Most assuredly, but believing in a power greater than myself & trusting that there is a plan, does help to comfort me.

Sandy Hook certainly is a tragedy, but we must remember that tragedies happen everyday. Miracles happen everyday too. I must keep a sense of perspective. 26 people died today in Sandy Hook, but many more died elsewhere around our world today. All of those that died today will be mourned, they were all loved by someone.

How many people found out they were cured of cancer today? How many children were born to loving parents today? How many people averted a tragedy today by some simple action or lack of action? We may never know. Life is not a promise, it is a gift.

Is there proof of a loving God? All I can say is that my life was good today. I shared time with friends & family. I laughed, I listened & I really heard what they were saying. I smiled at &/or hugged at least 40 people today & it made me feel wonderful. I made a special effort to make a friend feel important on her birthday. I believe that "yes" there is a loving God in my life, but I do invite God into my life. I appreciate the good & I accept the bad. I rarely attend any church, God is everywhere.

At 10 I experienced a NDE. Yes, I became aware of a loving God. Death is not painful, it is not scarey, it is not traumatic. We all die. While here in this life, we must look around, pay attention & appreciate those placed into our lives. They are all there for a purpose. We are here to learn. Am I angry that this tragedy happened? Yes, but I accept that there is nothing I can do to change what is past. The present is all I have. I try to make the most of right here, right now.

Look & you will see. Listen & you will hear. Believe & you will know peace & love.
