    LittleDTO – you think God should just make everything happen the way He wants, to keep everything nice and pretty and happy? Just because He is all powerful doesn’t mean He is going to constantly exert that power and make everyone do good.

    God doesn’t tell us we have to suffer to get the prize. EVERYONE suffers whether they are aiming for the prize or not.

    You may have read the words but you don’t understand.

    God doesn’t require you to suffer. These kids died from a tragic accident, not from God doing it. Our world is fallen and bad crap happens to everyone. Trusting God doesn’t mean your life is always good and everythign gets fixed, it means God gets you through the bad crap with out you completely losing yourself to grief.

    We are not pawns on God’s chessboard, destined to do what He says. We have free will. He is just outside of time so He knows the choices we will make.

    You rock, grandma.

    What happens with divorce? Or if your wife dies and you marry another? This makes no sense.

    And I whole-heartedly, totally reject what J Smith says. God killed them because they were too good for the rest of us. Disgusting.

    Please don’t say that maybe God took them home to prevent a greater heartache. This is not comforting and is what makes people angry at God. Why would a loving God kill a person rather than do something else to deliver that person from “a greater heartache”? Why would He choose death instead of life?

    So true what you say. One of my granddaughters died in a house fire over a year ago and there was no reason for it except that bad things happen; we live in a fallen world. God didn’t take my Lissie home because He had a greater plan. She died in a tragic accident. I never got mad at God, but I’m older and have lived through a lot so I think it helped me trust Him through the awfullness of her death.

    blah, blah, blah. I believe in God and this was a true sign, I think there is no god and you are stupid to believe, and on and on and on ad infinitum. I couldn’t read all of this blabber. I’ve read all this stuff before too many times. No one changes anyone’s mind and it’s just annoying.

    I am a Christian and I do believe that God sometimes does special things for people. I don’t know why sometimes it happens and sometimes a person is decapitated and not protected. I can’t figure that out. I wasn’t there in that guy’s head. I don’t care if it was a real sign or not. I don’t personally know the dude. He thinks it is, that’s his life and business. Why do we care so much about Hollywood actors?

    kaydee – keeping the unity should never take the place of right theology. The emergent church theology is so messed up I will not be unified with them. Max has nice books that talk about God’s love but if he’s emergent than he’s wrong.

    Stupid kids playing with something they know nothing about.

    I was present when a demon was manifested in someone I knew and loved. It wasn’t fake. It was real. I had been led to fast and pray for a week before that for an unknown reason, and I NEVER fast and was surprised I did it, and then that happened out of the blue. The person liked having the demon and was not delivered. And I no longer have anything to do with that person.

    The people on that tire ride all using selfies! That is ridiculous. They are on a ride with friends, and they are taking pictures of themselves..

    Go read Proverbs. It tells us to stay away from thhis sort of “entertainment”. I guess you are too “educated” and “moral”, and watching evil things doesn’t bother you. You must be the exception.

    AND, of COURSE I (as a moral person) am allowed to judge someone creating art. If I think it immoral or ungodly, I can say so. Do you think “Piss Christ” is OK? If you do, you have a warped idea of art.

    I don’t have to watch a show to know what it contains. We can look that info up on the internet. Context does not matter. It only matters to those who love the show, because it’s like a brual soap opera. They leave you hanging to make sure you keep watching.

    Just because a show is an honest portrayal of the brutality of the period, doesn’t mean it is good for me to watch it. BTW – this is not a portrayal of any historical period. This world is completely fictional.

    So the rape wasn’t actually shown? Does that matter? We know someone was being raped and it makes people uncomfortable, and so should a lot of other stuff going on in that show.

    I completely disagree with you radoc
    Taking your logic, I should watch snuff pornography because after all, God made sex, and the human body is beautiful, and people do stuff like they do in porn, and I know it’s FICTIONAL so no one is really killed, so that makes it OK.
    We aren’t supposed to challenge our faith by participating in, including viewing, sin. It is up to us to figure out what that means and where we draw the line of “this is OK” and “this is not OK”, but saying we should watch shows like this to challenge our faith is ridiculous.

    I am disgusted with the people that just “woke up” to this show’s violence due to one rape scene. I only ever watched the first one and decided incest and murder were not for me. Not that I only watch G rated movies, but due to the controversial and disgusting first showing I could see what the future would bring and I wanted nothing of it. These people that have watched it all this time weren’t bothered by all that has been shown so far, including other rapes, castration, ridiculous amounts of sex and violence, and it’s all been fine until this one segment? The entire thing, even if it’s acted well and directed well and filmed well, is just not worth the assault to my eyes, my sensibilities and my spirit.

    The rapture comes – please give me a specific scripture to which you are referring that would make me decide that she had a vision from satan. Because none that you gave so far makes me think this.

    Do you think any modern day visions are from God, or did all that happen in Acts and now we don’t get visions?

    Why do you need to “test the spirit/voice/vison” when it is asking you to receive prayer requests? And tell me, how would you “test” this vision? I don’t see how it would go against any scripture.

    I don’t think praying for strangers has to do with verses warning about wolf in sheep’s clothing. Nothing in the bible tells us to not pray for certain people.

    I know Amtrack doesn’t benefit me. The state buses don’t benefit me either. I’m in a rural area. You have a car or you walk.

    There will ALWAYS be accidents. Always. People that think they can be stopped are stupid. We can be as safe as possible, but there’s no such thing as completely safe.
