Gee, sounds like you've got it all figured out.
But there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
Maybe some of us have lived longer than you and have had.....experiences that tell us differently.

So why blame God for natural and man made events?


Why give him credit for anything good that happens on Earth?

God does care about our lives on the earth but it is basically a training ground for the afterlife. Plus compared to eternity, our lives are a blip on the radar. Christians are described in the bible as pilgrims passing through to another land.

So is that the answer to why a guy was run over, decapitated and disemboweled yesterday? That he was "just passing through"?

What a kind and gracious fellow that jesus guy is!

Why does that matter when he created all of mankind? What, is he racist too?

Because Revelator said Christians are described as pilgrims just passing through, not all inclusive.

Odd that he would have made humans so imperfect when he could have just kept all of the souls with him in the first place. But at least he had the attention to detail to create the entire universe and cosmos even though the only entities that matter are on a grain of sand sized planet in said universe.

Apparently even if you like a good and moral life as a Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, etc. you're still going to hell because god is jealous he didn't get your prayers.

No, He is jealous because they haven't accepted the Sacrifice He sent to earth to reconcile them back to Him.

So loving and forgiving he is! He surely merits prayer and worship!

Or maybe the universe is absurd, and indifferent. Maybe it plays favorites to no one. Good and bad people suffer, and there is no reason behind it.

No, it just means they didn't have a relationship with Jesus who provides access to father / heaven.

According to the scriptures, there is but one way to heaven...

but many people like to believe that all roads lead to heaven...

The bible is very hard line on this one...

All of us are sinners which means we all need to be cleansed of our sins or we can not coexist with a Holy God...that's what the scriptures say!!

other religions see Jesus as another prophet which is an insult..because Jesus is God in the flesh...


.... it's a big problem...all faiths can't be right...

... study out the scriptures and make your own decision....apathy won't get your sins forgiven ...that's just the way it is.

Probably the most difficult scripture Jesus said "the road is narrow and many will not find it"

Well according to the pope, it doesn't matter if one 'accepts' or not. Apparently the blood of Jesus truly is enough to encompass ALL. Even the atheists, says the pope. LINK

At least that was my understanding of how it works back when I was superstitious.

Oh, I forgot its a members only type of thing, my bad.

Anyways, I was using the poor dude from yesterday as an example...I'm sure there are millions of christians that have died just as horrible deaths to which the simple answer of "yo man, just passing through" can still apply. If someone were to tell me that if my son died I would probably rage.
