Message Subject Something that confuses me about the bible.

Post Content
Romans 13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

I want to please God, but I'm having trouble accepting the part in bold.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

I will never believe that this creation was for nothing, i will never believe that there is a god that would punish us for HIS own creation, and you all, whoever is reading this reaslly needs to think abou that for one second...why in the world would a creation be destroyed by the maker in the first place. It would be like saying you never wished your life, or children to be born, come on people wake up!!!

religion and the word are just that....nothing..remember Merlin...he had it right, they turned their back on Queen Maab and forgot she ever existed...that's all we have to do.

The destruction you see is not caused by God but a malevolent created being known as satan who hates God's creation, and especially mankind, who are created in God's image, and most special to God. It's said the the devils greatest trick was to convince men he doesn't exist. If this be so, than surely his second was to fault God for his wickedness. But God has granted men freewill, and he's allowing things to play out, for now, to demonstrate that lucifers kingdom, which are based on accusations against God's laws that first started in heaven, do not bear good fruit, and that God's principles are just and Holy. Had God immediately bloughted out this heavenly rebellion, it would have strengthened their accusations that the Most High was a tyrant and his laws arbitrary. God knew this would be carried out to mankind, and that we'd fall, but must give man free will in seeking to create a family based on love, as love cannot be forced. Therefore foreseeing man's fall, God himself decided He would provide the solution for mankind, sending His only begotten Son, to take our punishment we deserve.
