If Hillary gets elected, they may need a wall to keep us in.

If she was asked, I believe it would go something like this….
“Well… I was brought up to believe he was a very caring man who would not have a lot of nice things to say about what my opponent is suggesting we do in this country… Blah, blah, blah…..”

“So WHICH god should one seek to become closer with?” ~
As a Christian, my faith is in the God of the Bible, the one true God who sent the world Jesus Christ for our salvation. The Alpha & the Omega. The beginning and the end. As you said, there are many who may be sought, but God tells us he is a “jealous” God, and in the Commandments, lets us know, “Thou shalt not have any other gods before me.” I interpret “gods” here to mean not only other deities/religions, but other activities that we put first over God, e.g., our profession, alcohol, or love of money.
“If a god can answer all these questions… WHY do I continue to be unable to ‘see’ the answers?”
I’m not sure I have an answer for you here, but God does answer our prayers, reveals the truth to us… in sometimes, very interesting ways. Perhaps He is speaking through individuals on this site… not necessarily directly, but via providing insight to individuals who communicate the info He wants you to “get.” Re: prayer, the Bible directs us to ask in prayer as if we’ve already received it, which means you must have faith that your prayer will be answered… and I mean, only ANSWERED. It does not mean that we are guaranteed to get what we want. He answers according to His will, and what is ultimately best for us.

A couple thoughts re: your response…
“Sorry but… I believe it is but man who has defined right and wrong / ‘good and bad.’ Often doing so through some version of some type of god-based beliefs.” ~ I agree, and disagree… simply a matter of semantics. I believe God, not man, DEFINES right and wrong/”good and bad,” and our feeble minds attempt to interpret what the definition is. If we accept Jesus Christ, study the Bible, walk with others in the faith, engage in prayer, we will inevitably come closer to the TRUE definition of what is right and wrong/”good and bad.”
“For me… good/bad, right/wrong should be based on the harm or benefit TO OTHERS.” ~
The “Golden Rule,” you are knowingly or unknowingly referencing here, only takes one so far. There are actions one can take that do not harm others that would still be considered “bad” by God. For example, when you are angry about something while you’re all alone in your house, and shout out God’s name in vain. Then, we could analyze if the basis of your anger to begin with is rational/irrational… that is, good or bad. Still all you… no one else being affected. Indeed, this can become a quite complex discussion.

Those who believe in God are surely closer to God. Since God is the one who created all that is, He is the one who has defined right and wrong, light and darkness, “good and bad.” It would seem that those closer to Him would have a better understanding of these concepts. One begins becoming closer to God by having faith… believing.
Work to become closer to God, Zap. Then, you can ask Him to reveal His answer to your last question. God knows He can answer you better than any of us.

Sure. You can print it. You just can’t display it in public.

What if she’s 40 and a size 12, but she identifies as a 30 year old whore, size 7?
“Machete…” would be too harsh… more like “Protest Violence.”

Went to the Metallica concert on their “And Justice for All” tour. I was more interested in the warm-up band… The Cult.

Yeah, Maji. You beat me to it. I like how she starts with “IF…” Despicable.

I’ve noticed this push over the years… more and more soccer. Everything seems to be wrong about soccer, starting with not being able to touch the ball with your hands. Then there’s the whole time-clock thing… moving in the wrong direction. Never mind the fact an entire game can be played with no score.
