Bill110 and Nullify Now: You apparently haven't read my whole post, because a word limit required that I post in three parts. You're forgiven for that, and I'm not God, either. You can call it "grace," or "salvation," or being royally dubbed with an invisible broadsword, it's still "faith" in the unprovable and metaphysically impossible. Nullify, the Old Testament has as much credibility as the Koran, it was a work knocked together over centuries by tongue-in-cheek monks in the Dark Ages trembling in fear of the barbarians and looters rampaging over Europe and the Mideast. Faith? One also has "faith" in the existence of the tooth fairy, jins, and poltergeists, until one accepts that they're metaphysically impossible.

Edward, did you know that there is a scarlet thread running through the O T, to the CROSS? It's there if you open your blinded eyes...from beginning on through, Rahab an ancestress of Christ used
such a thread when Jericho fell..that scarlet cord hanging from her window. Everything in our Holy Bible points to that Cross and HIM Crucified..and nothing you can argue can ever change that.

Edward
You offer me zero Zero explanations for why I exist. Zero explanations for why people exist and have done so for a recordable time period of less than 10,000 years. And zero explanations for why many of lived in deprivation,pain, and suffering.

In other words your ideas have no credibility for explaining what I see before my eyes. Only the Bible can do that.

If you want to pretend that there is a reason for me to believe that you possess a reliable logic to which I could subscribe, how shall you do that when you have already disallowed the possibility that any certainty exists by writing off the a God who says certainty does exist?

If certainty does not exist,and in your world view you cannot prove it does, then I most

certainly cannot believe a word you are saying to me.

Also, it is perfectly logical for me to believe that a God, indeed any god, as powerful to have created the amazing universe we see can surely get an accurate book published. It's a no brainer.

And that some old monk dudes were part of it? Don't fall for that logical fallacy! LOL

I see you are not good at rational thought or logical thinking. And only a moron would suggest that the Koran has credibility.

It's a handicap of heathens.

There are none so blind as those who WILL not see. It's that old Free Will thing, by refusing to see it, the willingly mock anything about true faith but they do have faith in what they WILL not see and believe. Jesus did heal the blind men so all we can do is pray that GOD will take the arrogantly chosen blinders off.

As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way? If any of us had known what Adam Lanza was going to do, we would have done anything in our power to stop him, so why didn't God? All too often we tend to quote...
