Where in the Bible does it say we won't suffer? I think someone has the wrong idea of what God is all about in this world.
Leona MacDonald November 05, 2012 at 01:02 PM
Buzz. "It's humane nature." I think you meant human. Maybe the problem is you need to slow your roll.
Buzz Beeler November 05, 2012 at 01:21 PM
dj, you have no idea of what or who this Steve is. He has used several AKA's, has slandered and libeled me, accused me of being the leader of the KKK among others and continues to lie outright. I stand by that statement and challenge him to prove otherwise. He claims to have thre degrees from Purdue, speak six languages and yet Ive been waiting a year to see some verification and nothing. Do me a favor and do some research before you attack me an run you lips. You sound foolish without knowing all the facts. What is a djp952? That puts you in the same category as Steve.
Buzz Beeler November 05, 2012 at 01:27 PM
Leona, thanks. I was raised strict Catholic and remember John where he says: "All those who believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ shall have their prayers answered"? I don't thing he was talking about suffering. My mother prayed every day of her life and just died a terrible death. Nice God to treat his child that way. In this world we call it - Child Abuse!

The real problem seems to be that we are all nothing more than animals with brains that have the ability of perceived reason.....called human beings by our own definition.
Buck Harmon November 05, 2012 at 01:44 PM
When Buzz is on a roll it creates a buzz sometimes...
djp952 November 05, 2012 at 01:52 PM
I really don't think I'm the one sounding foolish here, but thanks for the advice, it's very humane of you. Maybe if you offer Steve $5 million to a charity of his choice he'll show you his degrees? Do you need to buy an extra seat for that chip on your shoulder when you fly, or does it still fit in the overhead? Try to have a good day sir, sorry you have such a demon to slay. It must be difficult.
Sharron Ice-Werner November 05, 2012 at 02:16 PM
Wow...laughing at this conversation!
Buzz Beeler November 05, 2012 at 02:21 PM
DJ, it's easy for you to sit in judgement since you not the one being attacked on a constant basis. Look up Robert Armstrong and that who Steve is. Read his comets then pass judgement on me. If I came at your for over two years like that you would have a fit, but no, you just spout off without knowing the facts. Uninformed is a good word. I don't have a chip on my shulder but I'm certainly not going to lay down and let some crackpot like Steve call me the leader of the KKK amonger many other slurs. And if you would allow that then I would have no respect for you. I don't think you would allow your family to be slandered like that now would you? If that is what you mean is a chip on my shoulder, then yeah, I have a big one.

Here is a Christian perspective. God created a perfect world. Eve ate from the one tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that was forbidden. God never intended for us to know evil existed. This created the fall of man and hence our broken world. God created man with free will so that we would not live as robots...slaves to God. He wants us to choose Him out of our own love. All I ask is that you read Genesis. I watched my grandmother suffer a horrible death about a year ago, and her faith as well as mine, remianed strong because I knew where she was going and I know where she is. God gave us the ability to make choices and to reason. It's not the God is gone, or not interested in this world...it's that He lets us makle choices. Jesus noted that we would not be without suffering. He promised eternal life, but not a lack of suffering. All I can recommend is reading Gensis and the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to start. God is a loving God, but it's difficult to see in our everyday lives. I can understand why so many people don't believe in God or think that He ahs abandoned us. I cannot, nor would I be pushy to try to make people believe what I believe, I just like to ask people to consider it. As I said, we are free to make our own choices, but the love I have in my life (which is not perfect, two babies lost before they were born and other things that were difficult as well). I just wanted to shed some light from a Christian perspective.

A new low in social discourse.
afly80 November 05, 2012 at 02:53 PM
sorry about the typos, my fingers don't seem to be working well today! :-)
FIFA November 05, 2012 at 02:58 PM
Alicia - I ask you to consider this. One of the reasons most non-believers disagree with you is your third sentence. "Eve ate from the one tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that was forbidden." To imagine that "poof" happened and Adam and Eve were just placed on this planet is incomprehensible and not supported by any science.
Leona MacDonald November 05, 2012 at 02:59 PM
Buzz. Maybe that's the problem. Jesus didn't say it..John said it? I donno. I was raised that it was untoward to ask for anything. It was proper to ask for his will to be done. God made folks suffer all through the bible. Maybe you should try sitting down and reading the bible one end to the other like a book and then give a review. God in revilations makes everyone suffer.
Leona MacDonald November 05, 2012 at 03:00 PM
"Read his comets then pass judgement on me." Comments. Please if you are trying to play like you are brilliant ....and oh so smarter than everyone else ya better proof read.
afly80 November 05, 2012 at 03:02 PM
FIFA, youre totally entitled to what you believe! I would never try to push you otherwise. There is no science to prove that God created man, you're correct. For me, that is what faith is, believing in what is unseen and what may or may not have evidence. There is a lot of evidence that supports the Bible, but it cannot be proven to 100% accuracy. Please know that I am not in any way trying to start an argument with anyone, definitely not my style. Just wanted to shed some light on what the Christian beliefs are.
Leona MacDonald November 05, 2012 at 03:14 PM
What the heck?
Leona MacDonald November 05, 2012 at 03:17 PM
If we are going to start picking and chosing what to censure then there's no sense in bothering to post.
Buzz Beeler November 05, 2012 at 04:12 PM
Based on whose opinion, yours? Not much in substance doesn't bode well for your rather short train of thought.
Buzz Beeler November 05, 2012 at 04:21 PM
"God is a loving God, but it's difficult to see in our everyday lives." If you believe that the power of God is almighty an that he created heaven and earth (with all it's flaws) I would say something is rather amiss. This is a good link to read. It's relies on the books own words and the reality of the world. http://godisimaginary.com/
Buzz Beeler November 05, 2012 at 05:22 PM
Leona, I entirely agree with you. We are engaged in discourse which carries a variety of opinion and views Just because two people engage in same or for that matter many people, if done properly, everyone should have their say in an adult and respectful way. The articles that are disallowed by the editors are done when the terms of agreement are violated.
afly80 November 05, 2012 at 05:56 PM
Just wanted to respond to your last comment to me to clarify something. I said thaat God created a perfect world, not one with flaws. It changed with Adam and Eve. It was never meant to be the way that it is today. Like I said, I'm not here to argue and it seems that you are very much in defense mode and that was not my intention. I just wanted to clarify what the Christian view is because the basic question of "if God is a loving God, why is there so much pain and suffering in this world?" was asked. Clarity is all I was trying to give, not start an arguement or debate with anyone including you.
Buzz Beeler November 05, 2012 at 06:41 PM
Afly80, we are not arguing. We are engaged in a conversation of different viewpoints. I respect your views. I just pose questions to them for thought. Lets look at Adam and Eve. In my opinion for God to punish the human race with unimaginable suffering for 2012 years because Eve ate an apple is a bit much. Not only that I thought he died on the cross for that and man's sins. Just for the heck of it read that link I posted. My deceased Mom read a tattered prayer from a old piece of paper and then prayed the Rosary every day so she wouldn't fall. In the end she fell and that began her slow painful path to death. I wondered how could God's mother culd do that given the fact that her son is supposed to be loving and merciful? Why would Mary allow that? Would you allow your children to go through that?
afly80 November 05, 2012 at 07:48 PM
Great question! In all honesty, I'm not catholic, so I am unfamiliar with all of the practices. I am just a believer in Christ. Non-denominational Christian. God set up the world without wanting to punish it. They learned what evil was that day because of the eaten fruit. It was because of that that we see the world is turmoil today. We were never meant to know evil. satan wanted to take us down because he was jealous. he was God's greatest creation until man. he was created as an angel originally and cast out of heaven. I agree that the the Bible can sound crazy, but that's why it is a blind faith of sorts. I did struggle with this too for a long time, but I came to terms with the fact that I had a choice to make and it was not going to be based on all factual information. I am OK with that because I did my research. I still go through hardships and I have family and friends who have done the same, but our faith gives us hope in something other than man. I did look the website for a while and honestly, it's set up to make us feel insane for our beliefs, but believing that man and grass came from pressurized hydrogen seems just as crazy to me. It's a constant battle and I think it will be to the end of time, but again, it's a choice. Since you shared a website, I'd also like to share: http://store.josh.org/cart/product.asp?prodid=0785242198 Josh used to be an atheist, then he researched on his own. This is one of my favorite resources, thanks for a good conversation!
Buzz Beeler November 05, 2012 at 08:04 PM
afly80, I was s strong religious person also. I just could not understand that a loving mercifully God and creator of all things would allow his own children to suffer like this. A great quote came from the acto Burt Douglas who asked why we have not heard anything from God since the Bible? I would like to see some sort of update or something other than blind faith that was written thousands of years ago. Religion does give us peace just as our loved ones so it does serve a purpose. Science is discovering scrolls that shed new light on the Bible who was put together by a man named Constantine as ruler of ancient times.

FIFA November 05, 2012 at 08:27 PM
We have found something we agree on.
Buzz Beeler November 06, 2012 at 01:39 PM
FiFA, I read that and I refer to it all the time. I think it's all part of the same websitejust a different section. When I watch my Mom die a painful death I kissed her cold forehead and thank God he was not around.
Leona MacDonald November 06, 2012 at 09:36 PM
Buzz, No not really. I don't think I violated anything at all. I've seen some pretty nasty stuff on here and some of it from even you. So...whatever. I'm done since I can't say what I think .
de. nielson November 07, 2012 at 02:31 AM
"Look up Robert Armstrong and that who Steve is." Is this comment understandable by any human I mean "humane"? I see he's still an idiot .
