    If God is not in control, then He is not God...

    What kind of evidence do you want exactly...?

    Responsibilities? what do you mean? Everyone has responsibilities of some kind but what kind of responsibilities are copping out by believing God is in control?
    My life's testimony seems to have helped many people so I am going to put it here http://christianchat.com/testimonies...-new-post.html

    When the hearts of God and a child of his make that special intimate connection a wondrous power is born and a flame ignites that can never be put out

    Jesus knew more than anyone of us-Love hurts

    The strongest among you may not wear a crown

    ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

    He is in control of those who submit to His will. The world has its own corrupted will, stemming from the original deception. satan deceived man, because man had the dominion and He wanted it. God is in control ultimately, but the world was turned over to satan, by mankind following His will, UNTIL the appointed time.

    romans 8: 20-21 "For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be LIBERATED FROM ITS BONDAGE TO DECAY and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God."

    mankind gave satan authority when we followed His will in eden, because He took man captive, and man Had the dominion from the creation in genesis 1. " Gods gifts are irrevocable" the dominion over the earth is mans, its a matter of whether we serve satans will, or the Will of God in Christ Jesus.

    I certainly get the impression from the OP that there is an enormous agenda behind this that is yet to surface.

    Read your bible. People can spew out verses to you all day, but the only way for you to know is to actually read and experience the word of God. I hope and pray you come and develop a relationship with him on a personal level

    pretty sure it stems from some of the "free will" debate that happens alot here.

    He is allowing a certain level of free will to occur and has so since the beginning. All other functions of our universe are going on just fine (sun, moon, stars, tides, wind), it's just our society is controlled by the free will of evil.

    He flooded the earth before when he didn't like what free will was doing, that's control. He sent Christ here to improve the quality of our souls. Now he will destroy all the evil and create a new world for us after the abomination of desolation.


    What kind of control do you want? God vaporizes men the moment they were about to commit a murder, rape, or corrupt political action? Or do you want him to display his presence and power on a regular basis so we KNOW there is God and are too afraid to sin or stray? Should he reward the Good and punish the bad immediately? Never allow hunger or war to exist?

    That kind of world would be nothing like ours. The bad has to exist or "lack of control", for the finer things in life, good, and sacred to exist. I guess you will have a perfect world after the End Times is over, read revelations and put your faith in that world instead of complaining about this one.

    He's all powerful and all knowing, it's impossible not to be in control.

    God is in control, all through the bible, if you would read you would know that. Satan only have control over influences of those he keep in the dark so that they can't see him working his evil.Jesus destroyed the works of the devil. he can no longer keep all of mankind from coming out of darkness, now that the Holy Spirit is present. the lost are being held captive by the devil.If i was using you and had success doing it, do you think i would tell you that i'm using you? no you would have to find that out for yourself, if you do and when you do, i become your enemy,because you made me look like a fool.

    I am yet to be convinced that this a serious question - this post with its mocking undertones is even less convincing.

    And then He gave it to us. 9 Therefore, go and make people from all nations into talmidim, immersing them into the reality of the Father, the Son and the Ruach HaKodesh, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember! I will be with you always, yes, even until the end of the age.”

    Genesis 1:26
    Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, in the likeness of ourselves; and let them rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the animals, and over all the earth, and over every crawling creature that crawls on the earth.”

    Why would you enjoy someone you that you call a friend's discomfort? Would you not seek to comfort a friend instead of enjoying his discomfort ?
