Why make it easy..

If the answer to all you questions, were evident, all by them self, and you knew everything there was to know, ... what then?
:sun:

Then you're god. And if you are then.. Then you can create everything knowing bad things will happen, yet letting it happen even though you could've prevented it to see how it would unfold.. (even though you know how it's going to unfold).. like watching a movie you directed, nothing to surprise you  :laugh:


Hell they didn't need to be made at all. Wonder if god ever thought about hitting the delete key... I'd get tired of knowing everything, and consume copious amounts of ethneogens to hopefully lose some of what I know... So I can be surprised when I rediscover it.

Gomp,
What then....?  My answer:  Shine bright, and Shine often....  :sun: 
As I am a little man with little knowledge (as per the whole), I would say to enjoy life for what it is in all it's perfect imperfectioness, and enjoy and share that enjoyment with the people, friends, and family around you while you are alive with the rest of us....  Perhaps the meaning in life is simply to enjoy it (free from sin), without hurting those around you....  If you enjoy, they enjoy, it spreads like the light of fire....!  (ironically)  :lol:  :heart:

Nothing to surprise you....???  :wtf:  :lol:    :shake:
What if GOD were watching the movie we are "creating", and....:


    1) The audio from the movie suddenly stopped working....?  :cuss:
    2) The light on the projector went out, or the DVD player stopped working....?  :idea:
    3) GOD fell asleep while watching the movie....?  :sleep: :drooling::coffee:
    4) The Devil zapped himself in and blew up GODs the DVD player / Movie projector....?  :hellfire:
    5) Man (accidentally) detonated an atomic bomb by GODs house, and there was no more power....?  :bomb:    :scrambled:
    6) There was an alternate ending due to editing errors....?  :slider:
    7) There was something off the screen of filming, and the movie suddenly and abruptly ended....?  :laser:
    8) GODs house got flooded, and he had to leave for a bit....?  :doh:
    9) GOD was eating his popcorn, and got sick from it...?  :popcorn:  :projectile:
    10) GOD heard a song on the radio, and decided to listen to that instead...?  :jamming: :playboy:

11)  I could do this all day long....  :shrug:    :grin:


If you believe in GOD, then you would most likely believe in the devil....  And since all of LIFE is based on FREE WILL and individual choices, then even GOD would not know what is to happen....  For if GOD could see into the future, there would most likely not be a devil at all, and we would not be living with original sin.... 

Surely he would not have CHOSEN to make his children live with the burdens of sin if it would have been a possibility not to have them....  Even GOD himself has made mistakes - (admittingly?)....    Seemingly, some of those mistakes were passed on as choices to man....   

Question:
Whatcha~ gonna~ dew~....?  :shrug:

Answer:
Live, Learn, and Grow from all of the mistakes you have made in your past....  Knowledge is Powa~ X 10.... 
Unless, one of those choices kills you....  :shocked:  :heart:


ME....


:heartpump: :heartpump:


Edit, clarified that I was speaking of ME to have "little knowledge as per the whole".... 
Just in case it was seen incorrectly, I did want to claify I was speaking of myself....  :heart:

:lol: But Phantom Cat.... If you really do believe in god, that couldn't happen.

Everything is happening because it's supposed to happen this way. Because he said so. :tongue:

If anything did happen due to any of the above mentioned examples... God planned it of course.

... God, I remember my parents giving me explanations involving that. Logic derived from god.

Me: Why do I have to do it that way?
Them: That's the way it's done... because we say so!
Me: Ok, at first it didn't make much sense, now I fully understand.
