I prayed for days on end, and without getting tl;dr, I'm alive and well today. Can I explain what happened? There are no words in the english language to describe the feelings that I got when God told me I would be ok. I do know that to this day I cannot think of it without crying, and hitting my knees in prayer, the whole situation changed my life for the better, and also that of my entire family.
Yep, including right here, right now...

Something worthwhile that I learned this past week at church... the lesson was about Luke 9 and one verse talked about how the apostoles should react if not received by towns where they went to preach the Gospel.
The comment was that sometimes, as believers, we spend all this time trying to convince people who don't want to convince. Instead, we should spend our time talking to those who are interested and may have an open mind. Don't burn all your energy where the message will not be received no matter how much you try. As Jesus said, shake off the dust from your feet and move on. My advice to those of you on this thread.4 “Whatever house you enter, stay there, and from there depart. 5 And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet as a testimony against them.”
God was powerless to stop him?
Well, I can say w/out hesitation that the Christians on this thread have convinced me I'm right about Jesus not being the SOG. Wow, twisted logic gives me tired head.
There's a thread here about an officer who was shot to death in cold blood and died at wal-mart. And
another thread where a mother was murdered and her child abducted, both of which leave behind a family.
Was that apart of Gods master plan? Surely he must take credit for such tragic and heinous crimes if he's running the show right?
There is no god, and 99.999% of the posters here prove that fact. I, of course, am exempt!
So, I haven't read this thread since about page 2. Has anyone talked anyone else into or out of believing that Jesus is the son of God and rose from the dead in the last 15 pages?
oh jesus christ not antoher theodicy discussion. we have the same $#@!ing discussion every quarter so you guys can recycle the same $#@!.
