This Story Is Going To Be Against This Topic *you've Been Warned*

This is nothing speaking against god, or those who believe him. Whatever floats your boat there; it doesn’t bother me. I only write this story here, because I can’t find a place where it exactly belongs and I don’t feel like creating a new experience where this story will never be heard.

What bothers me is when people seem to allude to that god has a specific plan for each individual. I would never believe such a thing. God has no plan for us, if anything; he just set the dial and pushed play. Where it went is up to you, and no one else.

No paranormal forces act upon our lives. Your choices are your own.

The choices you make today ultimately lead to your future.

And what peeves me so much more than this I wrote about above, it when someone (usually a child) dies in some accident or illness, and people say “Well, God decided to bring them home”, “It was their time”, “God works in mysterious ways.”

Pardon my French, but ******* no.

God didn’t affect any part of their death.

Do you know what happened?

**** happens. Every single day, and it’s sad. When a young person dies, it wasn’t their time. If they were like 90 years old, then I would maybe agree with you, but not someone young.

Face facts, if you want something good to happen in your life, strive for it. Don’t sit around doing nothing hoping god will.

And by the way, I am not atheist, I have beliefs, I am just logical in how I choose to believe.

You know, Christians state they hate Satanists (Satanist: Those who believe in Satans Belief of god controlling the People who worship him) but then, okay, you believe in free will, but then you spout this bullshit of god having a plan for you, some how steering you in the correct path, and if you don't follow his will, you will perish. Yah know, there is a word in the old testament that describes these types of people, HYPOCRITE. Ugh, As if christians didn't already get the entire bible wrong, they have to preach this ****.

This world in which we live is nothing but confusion because humanity has no understanding while religious people are the greatest fools of all because they not only don't believe God's harsh words against them all, but do not even know God through His Spirit of truth because believers do not follow God's instructions. Just one example of how God views all humanity are these following words a world of believers refuse to believe. . .

"The Lord looks down from heaven at us humans
to see if there are any who are wise,
any who worship him.
But they have all gone wrong;
they are all equally bad.
Not one of them does what is right,
not a single one. Psalms 14:2-3

There are but few in this world who actually have some understanding of God, and its because spiritually speaking, they are no longer of this world as written.

"If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. John 15:19

When those words fit us through our faith they become true. I now have about 400 posts, a published book, eleven websites, yet not one true and genuine brother or sister in Christ; and Proverbs 1:22-32 tells why.

"“Foolish people! How long do you want to be foolish? How long will you enjoy making fun of knowledge? Will you never learn? Listen when I reprimand you; I will give you good advice and share my knowledge with you. I have been calling you, inviting you to come, but you would not listen. You paid no attention to me. You have ignored all my advice and have not been willing to let me correct you. So when you get into trouble, I will laugh at you. I will make fun of you when terror strikes— when it comes on you like a storm, bringing fierce winds of trouble, and you are in pain and misery. Then you will call for wisdom, but I will not answer. You may look for me everywhere, but you will not find me. You have never had any use for knowledge and have always refused to obey the Lord. You have never wanted my advice or paid any attention when I corrected you. So then, you will get what you deserve, and your own actions will make you sick. Inexperienced people die because they reject wisdom. Stupid people are destroyed by their own lack of concern.

I can understand your mind, so please take care.

Woot!

Yippie.

I agree with the author

There is nothing more annoying than people saying it is God's will. I also find it hard to believe he knows what your gonna do before you think it... Yes God is powerfull but some of the things they claim is a bit hard to believe... Besides The true story has been lost so who really what God plan was when He created us?

I c ur point but we have two paths b4 us one is to our distruction the other to our salvation god gives u hints to try to avoid bieng distroyed but people r people they ignore the hints and when they suffering they acuse god but god doest punish the sinner god punishes the sin I wish life was easy but it's not demos give u bad thoughts but never make u do something it's the person who acts on those thoughts is the wrong doer that's y I don't believe when people say the demon made me do wrong they don't have that power we as humans have greater power then the demons alot greater u ask how we'll first thing we can pray Which is fuel to our soul and mind 2nd we have the bible which is our guide and our map to victory we can preach not even gods angels can do. With that said god has a path planned for us but it depends on the person which path u will pick

With all due respects Willow, quite often your phrasing displays an arrogance which undermines the veracity of the point that you are trying to make.

Please don’t think that I’m trying to attack you here. I’m simply suggesting that you reconsider your delivery, not your message.

I believe in the Judaic God. I believe in the Old and New Testaments, but not in an entirely literal sense. Furthermore, I agree with you that God does not get involved in the everyday minutiae of life on this planet. **** does indeed happen. I believe that God gave us intelligence and free will and, if we truly want to “worship” God, then we must respect those gifts and utilise them to the best of our abilities.

I wrote that story after a few glasses of wine. Which, if anything, I deserve kudos because that was all coherent sentences. I stick by what I said, and taking the time to re word it 'nicely' just won't happen.
Besides its one of those things that really bothers me.

The attitudes that you address really bother me too. :)

Well i do not share with you your view of God and how He works.

Yes God can and does intervene in this world and in our lives.
Yes God can remove a person from this world when they are still young.

So be it. I don't get frustrated with your views. What i don't like is your frustration at my views. You got no right to say "Face facts" when they are not facts just your speculation derived from your view of reality.

You're not God. You do not have total situational awareness on these issues.

All Praise The Ancient Of Days

Facts means logic. I believe in logic.
I choose not to blindly follow.
I don't care what you do. I respect whatever you choose to believe.

Your making the claim that i am following something blindly. Don't insult someone as being blind then turn around and state you respect whatever i choose to believe. It is obvious you have no respect for what i believe.

I never recall saying 'you' blindly followed anyone. Re-read that comment, will you?

You replied to me stating your disagreement with me then stating you choose not to follow blindly, clearly inferring that i do. Please don't insult my intelligence.

What I find odd is that you yourself naturally made a connection to 'blindly following' when I made the term just a general statement directed at no one.
I could care less with what you personally believe.

For each and every individual they all have a different concept of ' God" and that will always be the case, many stories in this group point out a variety of answers and questions relevant to the title of this group, link to this that not all people speak about the God of the Bible but a variety of Deities, for a young person like yourself you have a whole lifetime to mold your experiences into your belief and it is a fact of life that we are all influenced by our culture and surroundings which inturn influence our concepts.
