4 John’s clothes were made of camel’s hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey.
He was homeless, unemployed, and ate the diet of an animal. Basically he lived like an animal. Yet Scripture says of men born of women, there was none greater than John the Baptist. I guess we have to be careful before we cast judgement. God see's into the heart.
Nowadays if someone was living like John the Baptist, people would probably put them in an...
God could have created the universe and his human creations any way he wanted to. There is one way he could have done it and it would have been the far better way. That would be to have made his human creations perfect sinless beings where they are incapable of sinning. They would not have the option to sin.

Shouldn't it be true that God encompasses all there is?
Would God be God if there was something other than God?
Is time and space separate from God?
Are we separate from God?

The bible says we exist in the mind of God.

If we all set out on a search for truth and we all found...
We have discovered other planets...some which might even support life like our own. I'm wondering: my OWN belief system not only wouldn't be bothered by it, we've figured that there were lots of planets out there, "And worlds without number have I created," which do. Finding one that has people on it (sentient or not) isn't going to be a problem for us, nor will we have to change/adjust/fix our doctrines/beliefs in the face of it. WE will say "we told you so," actually.
Is a parent capable of unconditional love or are we just wretched, hopeless sinners in need of saving?
I am going to presume that people believe that everyone is capable of unconditional love.
If we have the ability to love unconditionally, then what do we need to be saved from?
It seems to me that unconditional love is the power of salvation.
This power is within us, or....
perhaps we are just wretched sinners in need of saving.
