If everything was torn away could I, would I still praise God? A hard question to contemplate. An even harder one to try to answer honestly.

I wonder what the whole story is?
What about you, are there areas where you have assumptions that might not be true?
But shouldn’t I do the best I can because I desire to please God?
Because I love God I desire to please Him
Will I ever get there?
It doesn’t seem so, but it’s not about what I am achieving as much as it’s about what I am becoming.
“The real problem for empirical scientists & rational skepticism is we care more about truth than the religious do.” Aron Ra, “Faith is not a Virtue”
Or, perhaps truth isn’t really all that important to some rational skeptics after all.
Change what words mean and change the past.
Once again trying to change the meaning of words to alter the discussion, like an illusionist tying to draw your attention to one thing, while distracting you from noticing the elephant walking off stage. The desire to alter what words means is a dishonest attempt to win the game by changing the rules. Hopefully Mr. Ra will move to his stated desire, to be more concerned with the truth.
Although I doubt it
“But God commandeth his love for us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
God’s love for you is not dependent on your past
So what is it again that you think is so bad that God’s grace is for others but not for you?
God’s grace is sufficient, no matter what. And best of all it is your’s for the asking.
Love others well.
Perhaps we should try to love too much.
Compared to what?
Not just for others.
Isn’t it time we stopped playing god and instead, let God be God.
Or is it?
So which is it?
Have we gotten off track?
I don’t see how anyone could think other wise. We allow the wholesale murder of a defenseless group. The government steals from its citizens on a daily basis, taking the fruits of their labor to give to those who have not produced,( for an alternative view on how best to care and provide for the poor see the Acton Institute) . Not only failing to protect the weak, but taking advantage of them and using, these the weakest, as an excuse for much of it. And treating different people differently the very definition of discrimination all in the in the name of justice.
