    Re: Denny Carble fucking with Beetle's message

    Prior, you blamed God for not putting a stop to suffering here on the earth and natural disasters. According to 2 Cor 4:4, it shows that Satan rules this system of things for now. However, God has pronounced judgement upon wicked people and nations at times (ie. the flood of Noah's day, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah). The difference is, first, there was a warning, (like the quotes you supplied as they were prophets from God) Second, unlike todays natural disasters, which kill good and bad people alike, destruction from God was selective. Only incorrigibly wicked or those who refused to listen to warnings were destroyed. Third, God made a way for innocent people to escape. As an example to finish the quoted scripture you referenced in Jeremiah 18:11 it says, "Turn back, please, each one from his bad way and make your ways and your dealings good"

    Just reading through old posts and feel i had to set the record straighter: That last one is for you DC...

    Yes, I am fully aware it is EASTER.

    (But I'm a WESTER Branch kind of guy)

    Jefferson quotes:

    "Is uniformity attainable? Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effects of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites."

    "You say you are a Calvinist. I am not. I am of a sect by myself, as far as I know. Letter to Ezra Stiles Ely.

    "As you say of yourself, I too am an Epicurian. I consider the genuine (not the imputed) doctrines of Epicurus as containing everything rational in moral philosophy which Greece and Rome have left us. Letter to William Short on his admiration of the principles of Epicurus.

    "Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law." Letter to Dr. Thomas Cooper.


    "In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own." Letter to Horatio G. Spafford.

    "If we did a good act merely from love of God and a belief that it is pleasing to Him, whence arises the morality of the Atheist? ...Their virtue, then, must have had some other foundation than the love of God." Letter to Thomas Law.

    John
