    OK, so tell me again how Yahweh gave us both Hitler and WWII and yet Yahweh qualifies as a loving god? (Rather than answer this simple question, I expect my comment to be deleted.)

      God gave man the option of following Him from the beginning or, through man’s own decision to sacrifice his and his prodigy’s lives through rebellion. Unfortunately for us, Adam chose to listen to his wife (I think it was because he wanted the creature more than the Creator), and chose rebellion, though he probably didn’t look at it like that.
      The rest of the story is what we keep seeing time after time, and there is nothing the natural man can do about it, except those who decide to accept God’s remedy (His love), which is what Jesus did for us to get us back on track.
      Again, unfortunately, most of mankind would rather have the fleeting pleasures of creation rather than fellowship with the Creator. As a result, mankind’s logic skills are corrupt and thus “we” come up with Hitler, Stalin, WWs I & II, and eventually III.
      As the writer of Ecclesiastes says, “there is nothing new under the sun,”
      Satan and his followers and those of mankind who choose to be fooled by Satan and his minions, think that is “hate talk.” Whaaaat???! Warning man of the treacherous end awaiting him and what they can do to avoid the judgment is “Hate talk?” Yeah, only those able to be fooled by their own selfish desires are able to say that with a straight face.
      Good luck to you, Dan, but don’t say you haven’t been warned.

    Sorry to disappoint you. You comment was not deleted. But there’s always hope, however cycnical. Maybe next time? Some might say that keeping your comment could be evidence of a loving God.

    I’d say that there’s only one bad thing: being separated from the God of the Bible. If God is real, the loss of lives, limbs, children, parents, wealth, etc. etc. is trivial. The object of this life may be to learn that lesson and stop thinking that these problems are really, really “bad” when the only truly bad thing is separation from God.

    For the moment, you write like a man who is significantly separated from the God of the Bible or, as you say, “god”.

    Would participation in “their” wars count on your volunteering to enter into “this state” and serving in a fiduciary capacity to the all caps trust name JOHN BALL JR.? It would seem the character in the movie had already signed all the commercial instruments/application and did not realize he may have already agreed to kill with weapons in their service. It seems to me “this state” was clearly hidden back then just as it is now. Killing in Their wars makes bricks in Their tower of Babel. Wars are neccesary for brickmaking when bricks can’t be made fast enough in peacetime. War cycles, peace cycles– the setting sun the rising sun. It would seem at present bricks cannot be made fast enough in the present War on Terror Cycle. Where do we go from here in the ongoing War/Debt cycle? My only hope is that in the next hot war we not only have contientious objectors but objecters who refuse to serve the all caps JOHN BALL JRs killing trust entities.
    HOLLYWEIRD productions always seem to let me down because I see through their subliminal propoganda imbeds, always. I haven’t seen a movie in years either. Yahweh has instructed me if I should stimulate the image side of my brain it should be something in reality, not HOLLYWEIRD imagry.

    Bible verse supporting my outlook towards movies– Isaiah 30:22- You will hold unclean the silverplating (silversceen) of your idols and the goldplating(Oscars?) of your images. You will throw them away like the polluted ‘things” that they are,shouting after them, ‘Good riddence!’

    THEM- “all their devices are against me for evil” (- DEVICES OF MOVIES AND DESIGNED TO CAPTIVATE THE MIND. Psalms (56):5. “they will dwell near and hide themselves” #6 -THE WEAPONS ARE HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT AND CREATED NEARBY IN HOLLYWOOD.
    But fear not if thou will harken unto Thee– Psalms 140:7 “Oh Lord God, the strenth of my salvation; thou hast screened my head in the day of battle”, yes, the battle is upon us. it is a war to capture the minds of the willfully unsuspecting. They have much or little to gain, you decide.

    Beware of the new unseen weapon known as the “Trump”, conservative democrat?
    Peace to my brothers and sisters, put on your helmet and protect your frontals.

    Here it is, Dec 5, and apparently dear Alfred went to the theatre and remained glued to his seat; or perhaps he was abducted during the popcorn intermission never to be heard from again, leaving his fans in dire and stormy straits.

    No, it wasn’t Hacksaw Ridge. I’m sure that movie will make me cry–and not a little–and I don’t want to cry in public. I probably won’t see Hacksaw Ridge until there’s a pirated copy on YouTube.

    The problem is that I’ve had a burn-out that I’ll explain in an article I’ll get to today or tomorrow. I’ve been exhausted.
