I wouldn't argue with you over something like this Galveston; my issue is primarily with your organisation (and others), not you personally.
In regard to the accessibility of god I want to be careful and say that I'm not criticising god, but in these discussions I usually recall the scripture that says somewhere "come let us reason together".
I wou ...[text shortened]... perately need to change and religious dogma with the denominational sectarianism is not helping.
That is good and we shouldn't take it personal but it can't help but to usually turn out that way. I would like to keep all of our discussions non personal with no insults. I have been guilty of that too.
So that being said is that some here do criticise God, his son and even anyone who might profess to be under his favor. That is wrong as none of us have ever heard God say out load for all to hear who he does listen to and who he does answer and who he does or doesn't work his will thru.
But the Bible gives very clear clues to this issue.
All he has given us is the Bible to read and pray to him to help us understand his ways and will. And even some here say the Bible is nothing and something we should not put our faith and hope in. Very sad indeed.
So in God's eyes the Bible is more then suffecient for all our needs and he has told us how to talk to him which is in prayer.
So as the example of trying to contact ones leader of the country they are in, which may actually be impossible, God is very easy to approach.
And the issue of us all suffering for many centuries now and wondering why he lets it go on, there is a very "fair and legal and a once to be settled" reason why he has had to allow this to happen for a period of time, his time.
If you are interested let me know.
