I think thats complicated question. I've done alot of thinking and reading. And personally I have come to the conclusion that "god" has nothing to do with. I do believe that there is something beyound ourselves, however I don't believe that god steps in and saves people. There are defiantely instances that could take on a divine like quality in an individuals life. I feel bad things happen and they are not right but we have to do our best to put everything back together.

Actually I was just thinking I replied to this but maybe this was just meant as a statement. If it was I'm sorry.

Frog, Christopher,

Here is the answer I came up with in April 2006:

http://www.malesurvivor.org/board/ubbthr...=true#Post16901

For the sake of context, let me say that I was working on this issue about 5 months after I disclosed to my parents and 4 months after I began therapy in English (previously it had been in German in Hamburg, where I teach).

Much love,
Larry

Is FROG "Fully relying on God?"

I have some very serious questions for GOD...
I cannot speak w/ HIM at this time...
I have a serious problem w/ a GOD who will sit
idle while I was being raped and molested...
Because of "CHOICE"...? FUCK that...where was my choice?
And I'm supposed to fully rely and trust HIM to know
whats best for me...?

Below is a daily inspiration from Joel Osteen that I received today:


Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him! (Isaiah 30:18 NIV).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

Sometimes, unfair things happen. A relationship doesn't work out, or a friend betrays us. Maybe you worked really hard, but you didn't get the position you deserved. Life is not always fair. The good news is that even though life is not always fair, we serve a God who is fair. He is a God of justice. He sees every wrong that's ever been done to you. He sees every person that's ever hurt you, every unfair situation. If you will stay in faith and not get bitter, God has promised He will pay you back for every injustice that's ever been done to you. He said He would take what was meant for your harm, and He'll turn it around and use it to your advantage. And the great thing about God is if you keep the right attitude, if you'll wait for Him, He'll not only bring you out, He'll bring you out better off than you were before! God wants to make the enemy pay for bringing that trouble into your life. Be encouraged today that God is for you! He is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Praise Him and thank Him for showing His justice in your life today!
