I know. I don't want to hurt your ears. It's a kindness.

Re: The Problem of Evil

That's the POE in a nutshell. God abandoned Jesus, and Job, and also abandons the problem of evil.

Re: The Problem of Evil

I don't think you want to get me going on the book of Job.

Re: The Problem of Evil

I guess I should point out the obvious : neither the image of God nor the "man has become as one of us" solves the problem of the POE.

A few minor points. First. Man has become one of us can't...

Re: Politics and the Church

You talk like all Christians are perfect. Or, they can sin, confess, do it again and confess, do it again and confess, over and over again.

You speak like a true Catholic. But aren't they 50%...

Robertson is either ignorant or his religious prejudices have gotten the better of him. Buddha never claimed to be a god. Buddha wasn't a Jesus, a Savior figure, or anything like that.

Re: The Problem of Evil

I couldn't let this one pass. It's personal to me. As I've stated, I thank God and tell Him I love Him hundreds of times a day. I do it like I breath. I'm nutty like that.

But often also I...

Re: The Problem of Evil

'If' being the operative word.

Btw, I don't think the Satan can be blamed for the POE, any more than he can be blamed for the plight of Job.

Thanks friend. I appreciate your concern. Sorry if my incessant hand-wringing is annoying you and maybe everyone else.

To be honest, when it comes to God, I do believe, or sympathize with, the...

Hey, you and Igzy are right. I do believe in believing. I believe in music. It's eternal too. Get that. I believe in something eternal. Hope I have ears that long.

But I don't believe in all...

Re: The Problem of Evil

No brother. It's just that I've been wrong some many times that I have no choice but to doubt even myself. I'm glad that's not been true for you.

Re: The Problem of Evil

Well then I'm in trouble. I don't believe in believing. Just believing admits to there being a doubt. Example : I don't have to believe in a tree. And reality doesn't care if we believe in it or...

Re: The Problem of Evil

Isn't that true for all of us? We only know what's in other heads if they tell us, and we can't even trust that.

Re: The Problem of Evil

I don't know about the aspersion of an evil heart, but it does question the Omni characteristics of God. And a good heart can question that.

Perhaps what you mean is that, the POE if embraced by...

Then I guess you are happy that we have made Israel one of the most powerful nations in the world, even letting them have nukes.

Re: Politics and the Church

Yeah, love your neighbor. Trap them in in Gaza, and pluck them off at will, even killing children. That's the way to treat them neighborly.

That's not propaganda. And by the way, you prove...

Re: The Problem of Evil

I'll correct you. The POE has troubled me for a long time. No strategy. Maybe it's an unsolvable puzzle ... without denigrating God for it. And that's why no one wants to dig into it. No one...

Re: Politics and the Church

No worming, at least concerning this. As I have seen it, bringing up anything that Israel is doing wrong, is defended by branding it anti-semitic.

And as far as I can determine they're just...

Re: Politics and the Church

I like them. But it's hard so far but to conclude that they are young and idealistic ... therefore idiots by that standard. Sorry if I offended your sensibilities for them.

Re: Is the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, evil?

But it seems ... just like to some it seems that it was entheogen's that woke early humans up to other worlds, filled with ghost-like beings, to worship.

That would make the steps : 1) entheogens...
