Well the thing is God gives us a choice. We can either do the right thing and the wrong thing. If you do choose the wrong thing than if you regret it and you ask God for forgiveness he will forgive you. But if you choose the wrong thing and you don't regret it and ask for forgiveness that is another wrong choice. God doesn't want people who continually do the wrong things without regret in Heaven with the people who asked for forgiveness.

It is pointless to believe in God. When you believe in God, you start making excuses for the actions that you make. Saying that "God did it" or "it's God's judgment" I think that this is absurd. We must realize that we are the creators of our actions and not some deity. Since we are in control of our decisions, we can abandon "God" and create new values and ways of living. A more life affirming view of the world rather than wishful thinking of entering paradise such as "heaven". Since we are all going to die, let's make the most of it by valuing what we have on this earth and what we have accomplished  in terms of discoveries. But we shouldn't stop now and go back to our primitive ways of thinking. We need to realize that in a way we are our own God's. We are able to and can do anything we want on Earth, you just need to recognize the consequences.

nice man, by the way God gave us the freedom to make a choice between good and evil, right ? so, the "all knowing" God gave us the choice. So, He's responsible for our decision. So, he should be given punishment for evil doings.

the rest is silence

I say, believe in God. We know our faith is our choice but we are not forcing it on others. You don't have to believe. Matter of fact Jesus did encourage people not too because He knew that they couldn't count the cost but they knew the price.

It goes two ways. 

If I got a dollar for every time someone told me God came on this earth to make people "Happy"...

Well, it meant that I could do what I wanted and delve into all the Pagan/New Age my heart desired. That was before I came to know Jesus. I used to want to believe so bad, but I couldn't. Now that I'm Christian, I think your eyes really have to be opened to him. Kinda like how when Jesus asked Peter who he was, and Peter said "you are the Christ" and Jesus's reply was "that was not shown to you by man, but by God." Idk

Well people who say their bad choices were God's fault are not true Christians. And just because you believe in God doesn't mean we shouldn't value what we have on earth, it just means we understand that we won't need them when we go to Heaven. It also doesn't mean we think our accomplishments mean nothing, we praise God for giving us the wisdom and strength to achieve and accomplish things. Thinking that you are a god is like like thanking the TV for shows and not the creators of the shows. And of course you need to understand the consequences of our actions but God is so understanding and forgiving that, if you regret your actions and ask for forgiveness, you can be forgiven in his eyes.

Yes, there is. Some people believe in god and some people don't, so if you don't believe in god that is your reason, this is my opinion.smile

Well, if "God" has a "Plan" then why are there young children being shot and a murderer winning the Superbowl? Would that really be his plan for us the people to live? Letting violence happen? If there was a God, he must have let the plan go because we are so messed up!
