God never quits answering prayers - sometimes you just don't get the answer you were hoping for
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 4/7/03 - 10:44:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, sometimes it doesn't seem like God is answering, but are we listening to him?
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 4/7/03 - 10:44:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
God doesn't answer prayers, he doesn't exist. Trust in yourself and those whom you hold close. If you try hard enough and keep your head on straight, everything should turn out ok in the end. It's up to you to answer your own prayers.

IMHO that is
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 4/7/03 - 10:45:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nah, cause at least it makes you more like Blood for Blood.

Does it make sense to pray to an omniscient God who already knows our problems and what we need? Hmmm... I feel another question coming on...

ever heard the song unanswered prayers? sometimes theres a reason he isnt answering-turns out better in the end!

So you've decided for sure, huh, wolf boy? Change your profile to "atheist." God's time does not always fit our perception of it. If we can't put aside that aspect of our human, unGodly want, we are probably paraying for the wrong things.

I thought we had gotten over this stage wolfboy...

I'm willing to bet quite a bit that god doesn't exist. The chance of him existing is near infinitalely unlikely, as such it is rather safe to say god does not exist. That however neither means I believe it possible to prove or disprove god's existance, nor that I could not be wrong and accept that possibility, despite how unlikely that is in this situation. Unlike you whom believes you cannot possibly be wrong in god's existance. I'm not willing to say I know god does not exist for an absolute fact as such knowledge is impossible to possess. I will however say that I'm willing to bet on it. Once again, being agnostic does not mean being 50/50 in one's belief or lack there of. It means not believimg it possible to prove/disprove such rediculous things as the existance/non-existance of god. Can I not talk based upon an assumption I find to be most probable without you screaming what you think my beliefs are at me?

Sorry del, was correcting the post

I continue to marvel at how threatened you are at my spiritual resolve, wolf boy. Might there be no God? Sure. Am I going to waste a second of my time worrying about it or humoring you about it? Hell, no.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 4/8/03 - 8:16:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Threatened? I'm not threatened, more confused than threatened.

Where I come from, 'No' is still an answer. He's not a vending machine. You don't pop your prayers in a slot and get what you want ten seconds later.

No one said you would get what you want...GOD knows what is best for you, and what may be best for you may not be what you think. And why are we to believe that there is an ever-present being who knows our every fault, our every gift, our everything...because in my opinion, He is in everything...He is in your heart, He holds your hand when you need Him...He is awesome! He did give each of us a free mind though...but I challenge anyone who does NOT believe in God to prove that God does NOT exist.

You're confused? I can agree with you on that. Yes, "no" is God's answer sometimes, especially when we are praying for our own wants, not His.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 4/9/03 - 10:37:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ha! That reminds me of this article.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 4/9/03 - 10:57:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
he's never even answered in the first place.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 4/9/03 - 11:00:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
Umm, I dunno.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 4/9/03 - 11:08:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
just listen

RaynDrop got it right...I've use that vending machine as a sermon illustration.

You want answers? Start by believing in yourself.
