    Does God Still Kill People?

    Drugs and alcohol are not the reason houses outnumber the homeless almost 7 to1. These should not even factor into it. If we stop using and make everything free for all, what law will we break?

    Sin is transgression of the law, but the law was added because of transgression. That means that only ONE law exists! Love.... Again, THINK about the statement. The LOVE of money is the ROOT of all evil. We are told to love God with all our heart, soul strength and mind. How are we to know if one loves Him? By how one treats his neighbor! There are currently 18 million empty homes that are empty in America alone. There are only 3 million homeless. Why are these people still homeless? If God blessed you and I with homes, why didn't He bless them with the same? Could it be our very love of money that keeps them on the streets? Surely we have more than enough housing.

    You can never solve a problem using what created that problem in the first place. Money is the reason people are sleeping on the side of empty, lifeless buildings, or go hungry next to stores packed with food. Do we have not enough technology and resources to house and feed all? Why do we let a man made piece of paper come between that?

    The love of money is the root of all evil. Get rid of money, and all evil will go away! As long as what you see to be a church need money for expenses, that will ALWAYS trump any perceived truth resonating from its walls. Take hospitals for another example. Looking at it from an individual basis, you get sick, go see the doctor and get better. But what is the overall view of this operation? A hospital, just as a church building needs money for expenses to pay the bills, and the people that works there. Therefore if the hospital cured everyone, there'd be no money to pay those expenses the more people are cured. So then the hospital, just as a church, needs sick people to stay open! How we react when in communion with one another in the street or outside is the gathering together mentioned. In order to be found in Christ, is to first be baptised into His death. So if we are to first crucify the flesh, then what man won't go this route? Salvation is a closed loop between God and Christ.

    This is my point of earlier posts. Men and women in the OT were CARNAL! They attributed BOTH good AND evil to God. In otherwords, they only knew in part. Through Christ however, we learn that God and His Father does NOT afflict people with any evil. We learn that it was SATAN that did. If a man does an evil act under the name of God, does that mean that God actually was involved, or was that man not aware of what spirit he was really under? We learn in John that in God is the power of LIFE and NOT death. That means that He can ONLY heal afflictions. He is not the cause of them. But as it was in the OT, men are decieved because they are still carnal. I was asked of what church if any do I attend. To that I will respond that our bodies are the true churches of God and not the buildings people attend. When I was younger I attended a Baptist church. But my lasting memory of church is not the energy and emotion of the songs or an occasional good sermon, it was getting a glimpse of the people counting the money afterwards! Those buildings are businesses like everything and everyone else. God and mammon do NOT mix. So if God is love, and love does no evil, then I will believe His son in the power to save ALL despite what any man or what any line in a book may suggest. Getting rid of the problems of the world are easy. It's the convincing of the people of what the real problem IS that is most difficult. Most are stiff-necked and stuck in their worldly given ways to see those problems in front of them, having eyes but not seeing, and ears but not hearing.

    Acts 7 53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it. Moses received the law by angels. Deuteronomy 32 8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel. 9 For the Lord's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. Now let us look at what most believe you be Israel the state and how it was founded in 1948. Those people took the land of another that was living there under the guise that it was God ordained. But the truth is they stole the land from those already living there. This isn't how our Father operates. This is how the enemy does! If I come into your house and take over your living room stating that God gave it to me, how would that make you feel?

    Death is an enemy, correct? How is it righteous in any way?

    I don't write many long posts because most peoples' attention span seems to dissipate the longer they have to read it. What I am saying in a nutshell is that God and the Father of Christ does not kill any man. It is satan that has the power of death. The men and women of the OT were carnal. They did carnal things and attributed it to God. Elijah called fire from heaven in the sight of men that they can believe in the LORD God or YHWH. However we learn through Christ when his apostle tried to call fire from heaven and was rebuked, that he did not know what manner of spirit he was under. Christ came to SAVE lives and not destroy them. The LORD God or YHWH is NOT the Father of Christ, but an angel given a host of men. In the OT it is stated that Moses talked to God face to face as a man talks to his friend. Yet Christ said that NO MAN has seen God at any time up to that point, nor heard His voice. Who are we to believe? In the true God, there is only light with no darkness at all. In the LORD God, there is clouds and thick darkness. These two are in contradiction.

    1 John 1 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. Is this statement true of God?

    Again, the TRUE God does NOT kill. "God" in Genesis 1 declared man to be "very good". It was the "LORD God" spoken of from Genesis 2 on that destroyed man. But Christ said only the thief steals, kills or DESTROYS.

    John 10 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. Did not Moses, Elijah and Enoch come before Christ? Does this statement include them in the 'all' as well? And if so why?

    Revelation 12 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

    Revelation says that it was satan who sent the flood. Were there or will there be two floods? Likewise we read in one passage that the Lord provoked David to number Israel. Yet in another passage dealing with the same account we read that satan provoked David. Is this an error? No. The Lord killed children simply for talking about a man's bald head. This didn't come from the Father of Christ who obeys what He says. Thou shalt not kill.

    No. I believe our Father is represented in the bible, but if everyman only knows in part, and never all there is, then naturally the other part must contain error. The book was written and printed by men. Certain books were given favor, while others were excluded. How can the bible mention the book of Enoch and yet it's not considered the infallible word of God?
