None of us are, nor do we ever want to be.
We are Gods children born into a world of despair maybe, but never forgotten by God.

Lord forgive them for they know not what they do.
They dont know what they do.
They just do it for their thrill of having power over a child.

If I was God, I would shower you all with good luck, a new beginning in life.
Where you are loved and trusted by all.
That would be a good starter,#

Just as Ste you shower a lot of good things here: a lot of fellowship and love, a lot of honesty and integrity, a lot of wit and good humor. Thanks just for being you bro.

Much love,

I mean not disrespect but levity is healing - too
I think there is some God in humor and laughter -

this is why I liked George Burns as God - to a certain degree.

\:\)

a frown turned upside down is a smile ---

isn't that a feat so close to Godliness?

I remember you like laughing ste.

God?

In the words of a song I like
"He's big enough to rule this mighty universe
Yet small enough to live witin my heart."

God is the most wonderful being you'll ever know. He's the loving father and mother you never had. He's the friend that sticks closer that a (good/nonabusive) brother. And he comes and encircles you with his arms in a nonabusive hug when you are crying alone.

And...He'd not a he or a she or an it. God is.

Just a few thoughts...

Love to all.

OKW

I know God is a matter of faith and not proof. In a way, I would be somehow saddened if anyone were to prove that God exists - there would be nothing to have faith in anymore.

But when I have doubts I turn to the psalmists, not so much out of religious conviction (though perhaps there is some of that to it) as for the sheer beauty of these ancient prayers and songs. These were people in touch with nature and they made the time needed to see and appreciate God in everything around them.

Much love,
Larry

Thanks guys,

Yes he is within us all, he has proven that on many occasions in life.

We live on a planet that is a wonder to behold, it is in part of the Universe which is exactly placed to form all kinds of life.

Another thousand or so miles from the sun, and we would be ice bound, nearer, then we would fry.

He was there to listen to our cries, and he gave us tools to survive unthinkable acts dealt to us.

God is about all the smiling childrens faces, filled with happiness.
That gives me strength to know he is there,

ste

My internet was down for 3 days, so I could not even be here.
Not, Gods fault!

Adam,

but God is within the child of God.
He did see your hurt, and brought you those safe hugs that should have been yours all along.

God, is part of all who embrace his presence.
Even if we dont believe he is willing to make things better.

Little adam is testimony to how the world should be,

Quoting John Lennon is dangerous, especially when it is done out of context. Try this one on for size; it completes the thought that Lennon was expressing when he said "God is a concept by which we measure our pain."

ďYou have to give thanks to God or whatever it is up there for the fact that we all survived. It took me forty years to finally grow up. I see things now that I never knew existed before. You have to do it yourself. Thatís what the great masters and mistresses have been saying ever since time began. I canít wake you up. You can wake you up. Itís fear of the unknown. And to be frightened of it is what sends everybody around chasing dreams, illusions, wars, peace, love, hate, all that--itís all illusion.Ē

John Lennon

I know the song pretty well...my point was that Lennon was pretty deep, and you kind of have to take his sayings in context. He definitely believed in God, which is what the song "God" is all about. However, Lennon's theory on God is a very different one from the Christian theory.

If you really want to get into what the Beatles thought about God and spirituality in general, listen to "Within You, Without You" on Sgt. Pepper.

Within You, Without You

We were talking-about the space between us all
And the people-who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth-then it's far too late-when they pass away.
We were talking-about the love we all could share-when we find it
To try our best to hold it there-with our love
With our love-we could save the world-if they only knew.
Try to realise it's all within yourself
No-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small,
And life flows ON within you and without you.
We were talking-about the love that's gone so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul-
They don't know-they can't see-are you one of them?
When you've seen beyond yourself-then you may find, peace of mind,
Is waiting there-
And the time will come when you see
we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you.

Nobby,

the lyrics are brilliant.
I think a lot of us as survivors look to who we can reach out to rather than reach in and save our own souls from destruction.

It is a humble trait that most survivors have.
Not to look after themselves but reach out to others who are hurting.
We know some of the hurt, so we are willing to share the burden of anothers hurt.

Is that not the most precious thing we can do in life!
Is that what God taught us all to do in life!
It is the essence of true friendships where friendship is the only bond.

God was surely speaking within JL, even though he did some bad things, he was a really cool guy.
I guess I iconize people in life, to who I would love to be me.

I just wish I could be me,

ste
