God found it important to display his power by destroying Sodom and Gamora, flooding the entire world,making the image of jesus in a stain on a wall that many came to see,and making a statue weep blood.He is given credit on a daily basis for curing people of diseases and any other number of physical and mental ailments.
So why couldn't he have clogged the fuel lines on a couple of aircraft before they took off to crash into buildings or send a couple of extra millivolts through a missle guidance circuit board and send it into the sea intead of the side of a ship?Why couldn't John Salvi's guns have jammed?Why wouldn't he send a divine message to his pope to do something about this annoying child molestation thing?
Because he doesn't exsist.He's our own invention,just as satan is.
Do you say that about electricity, gravity, thermodynamics or wind or even lightening
You don't see them ,so you make assertions of such magnitude that indicate your omniscient (all seeing eye)
Just because you don't believe gravity exists does this make in non existent, perhaps for awhile, as you leap from 30 floors, you may say I can fly, this did'nt hurt, it won't bother me, this is not happening , ,nice liberal and relative thoughts, but they will change in time, when you hit the pavement and the reality enters in.
God says several times you won't find him if your not looking and that he has hid his face from the proud,he actually resists the proud
Just because you have no understanding or full knowledge of God,does'nt make Him non existent as a matter of fact you won't have understanding in the flesh of logical and rational thought, it just won't happen
You therefore must have all knowledge to make an absolute statement like that.
And I highly doubt that is the case, out of all the knowledge out there that you might know 1% of that knowledge and in the 99% knowledge that you have yet to come across, do you think there may be evidence of God.
Maybe you just are'nt looking for him or your running from him.
Do you think that if you were a father and and husband and gambled your finances away, cheated on your wife, abused your children, sold drugs etc, that your family who are innocent bystanders by the way and even your parents,siblings and friends won't suffer from your lifestyle behavior, not to mention yourself
You have the power through choice ,free will, and influence,and position to alter, hurt even eradicate those in your circle of influence.
Why is ther any exception to those who flew those planes into the buildings, maybe God had revealed himself to everyone in those planes that died and it was there appointed time to die, ( we don't know) we all have an appointment with death, and it usually is not plesant, the bible says,it just so happened that the innocent were under the influence and free will of thiose extremists and by their actions people died.
We'd be in a utopia society if God was to take ownership and responsibility for hinder everyone's actions, and no one would be responsible for their actions and behavior.
We have no idea how God keeps his hand on our lives daily we surely have no contriol over our destiny, If today is the day so it be
if God then destroyed those people , we would all very shortly be destroyed by him.
Because we all have done some very bad things to others at one point in our life,history has proven the potential capabilities and destructive powers that lurk within each of us.
We should not think we are without that inherent evil nature and that is why we need a savior,god say he is willing that none perish but all come to repentance thru faith in Christ.
Rom 2:4 do you despise the riches of his forbearance,longsuffering but your hard heart is storing up for you his wrath..
God is protecting us
Acts17:30 ... truly these times of ingnorance God overlooked but now commands men to repent ,for he has appointed a day in which He will judge the world
according to his standard of right and wrong not ours
Matt 13:3-23 describes 4 different types of people who heard
the word but fell away,this indicates the type of heart they recieved it on,1) the wayside,t2)he stoney ground,3) the thorny groundthose who at on point recieved God's word but fell away for various reasons...
Matt13:28 describes the two groups of people mixed together and how God will separate them
