    If God were to say in the bible,,"if the world would believe in me and bend knee to me today,i will return today and end all suffering and pain"would it be worth a honest  a shot

    'God' is purported to have laid out several rules to live by in the bible and people throughout the ages have been warring, raping, pillaging, and causing one another major grief... often 'in the name of 'god' ever since...

    Maybe they have read the bible wrong Lindi.......>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    God is always with us. He doesn't "return"; WE distance ourselves and (many of us) return.

    Really worn out from those who believe God turns away from us. A parent may let his child flounder, but will pull him out of the water eventually. God's arm is always outstretched and waiting.

    A parent may reach out his hand to the floundering child,but if the floundering child refuses the helpful hand,,then there is nothing the parent can do..the story is the same with God..>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<..Always nice talking Bob

    I agree with your comment, terry; those who choose to believe God is obligated to save us from ourselves are possibly the ones who are most skeptical and condescending of faith. What do you think?

    obligation,,???does not explain the death of Christ on the cross,,God is not obligated to do anything for us,,we choose the path,,he offers to help us and save us,,i reckon he is a good God..Always nice talking Bob,,>>>>>>><<<<<<<<

    You DO understand we are on the same page?
    Jesus's sacrifice certainly wasn't an obligation. It was a gift. You can take it or leave it. Does it come with expectations? Yes. Are they unreasonable? In my opinion, no.
