Was God asleep at the wheel?


If Jehovah himself cannot muster enough foresight to prevent corruption from entering his perfect kingdom (it's happened before you know), how can Christians know for sure that Jesus will not allow evil to enter and corrupt Heaven: an obvious problem. If he's so omnipotent why hasn't he kickethed Satan's red ass?

God made Earth crap because of original sin. He can keep evil away from heaven as long as He keeps paying Satan souls.

god should have known that original sin would happen, so when he did nothing to stop it, he becamse complicit in the act. You are admitting that god is responsible for the state of the Earth...good job omni-benevolent deity.

According to Xianity, we are all evil, so god has to take our evil away when we get to heaven. We are evil because we have free will and we always choose to do evil at some point. Therefore, in heaven no one can have free will, so all denizens of heaven will be automatons. Heaven is populated with robots. Is this what Xians aspire to, to be robots?

"Withhold not correction from the child; for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell".

So, good christian men, beat kids with your rod.

(^that probably goes in the wrong direction to what you've brought up, but hey, it works)

ThinkTank has extremely long posts, but it answers them.

You've also most likely heard of www.godisimaginary.com

There are a few othre sites, but these should be enough(plus related on each website).

Whatever the answer is, the truth is there. Probably good to be more respectful to other beliefs, though?
