All things work together for the good of those who love God.

Just remember when people attack you, slander you, and otherwise abuse you that all things work together for the good of those who love God. Keep your head up, and keep your eyes on Jesus Christ the prize, for He is the author and finisher of your faith, not the bullies. I will quote the relevent Scripture below.

Romans 8:28: And we know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.

Those of no faith are just lost souls waiting to be found.

Those who do not walk in a pack are not necessarily lost- they just trust their sense of direction more than the 2000year old map that constantly contradicts itself and doesn't seem to be possible. Some go off and make their own, some get another, newer crazy map. But most of the people who think they are following the 2000year-old map are following one of the people who went off and made their own.

This is prosperity preaching if I've ever read it. All things don't work for the good of those who 'love God'. I should know. I'm not even certain he exists... if he does, he is the most indifferent person of all time. And that's me being nice.

Wrong. It is not prosperity preaching to quote God's word. God can bring something good out of even the worst situations is what I am saying. Do not pretend to know a religion that you are not even a member of. That is like saying that Republicants know everything about the Democrat party.

I don't pretend to know. I do know. I've known for a little less than two decades now, whenever I was old enough to understand at least. I come from a Christian upbringing... why else do you think I used the term 'prosperity preaching'? Also, it is fallacious to assume I would know nothing of a religion simply because I do not subscribe to its' belief system. I have argued with many atheists who know far more about Christianity than most of those who profess a faith in the Christ figure. They study other religions because it interests them, and probably amused at many of the contradictions they find.

So do not presume to tell me my business when you know nothing of me. Now sober up before you even try to argue again.

Very, very true. As the years go by, it becomes more and more difficult to endure this life and this society. I pretty much live by this scripture, even though I know I might lose my mind in the end.

i know how you feel, believe me. :'(

Don't get all huffy but it's ironic that you say this, considering the way you lash out at questions that seem pretty innocent.

Well we cannot redo her past so whatever she has done is done and we can only look forward. Hopefully she has came to a conclusion.

Except when tornadoes spawned by their own god whipe them off the face of the planet .

God doesn't create tornadoes. These things happen naturally.

Nothing happens without God's prior knowledge. He put the world and time into motion knowing full well that tornado X would occur. He couldve put time into motion creating a future where tornado X DOESNT happen but everything else is still the same, but he didnt. Therfore he intended it to occur

I would agree: we do not have free will and that is a good thing.

If someone is optimistic, then such a belief would be the grounds for justification.
