What does Jesus think?


Recommended Posts

If one believes that God created all things, then it follows that he also created viruses. If he did, he must have had some purpose for them in mind, unless, of course, he was just playing around. After all, God has a sense of humor, too. I seriously doubt, though, that he did it to serve as any sort of punishment... more likely crowd control, considering how many millions have died from various diseases and influenzas over the centuries.

I'm reminded of Ezra Pound's witty little truism... "God, in his wisdom made the fly, and then forgot to tell us why."

First of all....samallen, what are you blown away by...I missed that one.

If you choose to believe in God or not, that is YOUR choice. Personally, I choose God. I do not think we have the right to disrespect someone's choice of belief. I feel it is wrong to call someone moronic if they choose not to believe (you can feel they are moronic, but I don't think its right to tell them they are), and at the same time it is wrong to say God is dead or imaginary or that Jesus slept around to Needsacuppa. That is not your place and it is disrespectful. Clearly, Needsacuppa is Christian and has made her choice and this is not the place, nor is any place, to insult her beliefs. She has asked for guidance based on her faith and if you do not share that faith you probably don't need to make a comment. Based on faith....we all make mistakes, we are all broken, and we all fall short. There was/is only one that is perfect. ONLY ONE and it isn't you Needsacuppa. It isn't me either. So....God understands you are going to fail sometimes and He loves and treasures you anyway. We do have choices and with every choice comes consequences, some are good and some are bad. This doesn't mean you are being punished. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. Sometimes its the other way around. Regardless, God LOVES you and YOU are worth it to Him. I have been told many times over that God can handle it if we are mad at him. In the Bible it says that God is sloooooooow to anger, so I'm pretty sure He isn't angry at you. When I was diagnosed I felt the same way. I felt that God was punishing me for my actions. Now I think He was using it to get me out of a very bad place in my life. A pastor once said that God may hurt to heal but He will never hurt to harm. I had been having sex for years before I contracted HSV. Some people contract H the first time they have sex and some don't. Some people have sex with anything that moves and NEVER have anything happen. The bottom line, HSV+ or not....God loves, loves, loves, loves YOU!!!
