2nd guessing God.
« on: May 05, 2018, 05:26:55 PM »
Would you do things diferently if you were God?

How would you do things differently?

Why would you do things differently?


Rethorical questions, but I'm interested in your answers.

I'll give you my answer.   No.

Why? 

Because if I was God I would know why he is doing things the way he is and I would do them the same perfect way.

Hi John
I think it there was a better way God would have taken it after all he knows everything so has planed everything accordingly so there is no better way.

Love and Peace

I recall a previous post of yours Dave. You said that God found that the Law of Moses hadn't worked in the OT so God changed it to Grace in the NT.
Seems like the God you believe in makes mistakes.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

That's too scary to contemplate John. I think I'll let someone else answer.-

      Job38v3?Now gird up your loins like a man,
            And I will ask you, and you instruct Me!
      4?Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
            Tell Me, if you have understanding,
      5Who set its measurements? Since you know.
            Or who stretched the line on it?
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore.

Scary ! How often do we whine about unanswered prayers?

We are all far to use to doing and achieving our tasks, targets and desires. We get frustrated when there is a hold up or a road block.

Do we really accept that sometines God say no or not yet?

Hi Frances
I have never said God makes mistakes God is perfect in all he does and says.
God has a master plan it's called creation we may not understand it but it will work out exactly as he has planed.

Love and Peace

I thought you were talking about creation, not day to day stuff.

Agreed. We are more easily convinced by the Tree of Knowledge than the tree of life.

Francis,
           I'm referring to any attempt to say 'I know better than God!'
