Men are taught what lying is. God promised the birthright to Jacob, but in the flesh his mom lied to get it. Does this not teach us that all things work for God?

This teaches us that God can bring good things out of all situations to glorify him. Thank goodness! Because we all screw up so much.

Flamingspirit, good job. You revealed who is actually worthy and who is not here. And they are going to be very angry I said that.

I doubt this is a contest about who is worthy or not...

We all just need to act like it. That is why we shouldn't judge anyone.

How does the gentiles today follow the law in their hearts without having it? The same way they did in the bible. Love your neighbor as yourself.

IS GOD A CHRISTIAN?

Is God a Christ and a Christian (Follower of Jesus Christ)
Is God a follower of Christ? And Christ a follower of God?
Is God the I AM WHAT I AM'?

Was God with Christ when He formed the world?
Who was the first to exist, God or Christ?
Was it Christ who said, I and the Father are one?

Mahatma Gandhi once commented, "I like your Christ. I do not like Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."

God is a stand alone. An Ultimate Alpha and Omega. He cannot be called a Christian. Christians have faults. God haven't. Christians are short for God's glory. Christians are saved by God's grace and God's glory and not the opposite.

Is God Christ? or Is Christ God? That's a different question. But to that question. I won't answer.
What I only know I let God to be my Christ and let Christ to be my God or LORD. That's what you called Godship or Lordship.

James 1:5New International Version (NIV)[SUP]5 [/SUP]If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

Children are taught there are no stupid questions. Have the mind of a child...
'When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.' (duh)

(1 Cor 13:11 / NIV)

Respect is earned, and not by asking stupid questions.
In due respect to everyone here, stupid word is a mean thing. Even it is pertaining to a question or especially to a person. Although Didymus did not call FlamingSpirit directly a fool or stupid, still Flaming felt hurt. If for Didymus this is pointless and not worth discussing, but for Flamiingspirit it has meaning and value. As the word said, let us consider others better than ourselves. Meaning, don't look only for your interest but care for other's interest as well. Please, in my view, apology is needed and forgiveness is the best.

About the popcorn thing, I liked it because living a Christian life is not an easy task. To lighten the burden, we have to add a little easiiness, chill, but not making fun of something and someone.

Hurting someone intentionally or unintentionally, pls. sorry and pls. forgive us.

Ignorant as defined by the dictionary is a lack of knowledge about something whereas stupid is defined as a slowness or lacking of intellect, though it can also mean that something is pointless and not worth discussing.

(1 Cor 13:11 / NIV)
Romans 19:13-14

13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

We must understand the verses you quote. Do not be spiritual children but mature in Christ.

I judge only myself, and if I see that I fall short and want life, then I have to want that in all who fall short just like me whether they're called Christians, Muslims or neither.

in reading some of the responses to the op, i don't see much love. How would Jesus respond? do you think He would sound impatient, haughty, condemning. seems to me some people have some flavor that is not pleasing to the Father, sounding like brat kids thinking they are better than the kid that has holes in his shoes. i think some could have just been nicer to the op, and try seeing where he is coming from, before accusing him of being on drugs, booze, or being a troll. the people being the accusers look more like demons than, Holy Spirit filled children of the Most High God Almighty.
