Before a father leaves for his longest business trip yet, he encourages his son and daughter to remember, "Even when I'm not here, God is always with you." After he leaves, the boy and his sister spend a fun-filled day and star-filled night remembering everything their father told them about their heavenly Father: He is powerful, loving, everywhere, all-knowing, perfect, merciful, unchanging, creator, and a Father who wants to be known, talked to, obeyed, and worshipped.
Why does a perfect being want to be obeyed and worshipped? Why does god need eternal praise?
I can see how that picture might make some people think badly of God... that really is awful isn't it?
Sad Hooter’s God does not care but that is only one view of God.
The picture is quite horrible and heartbreaking. God from a Christian perspective certainly cares. Who did this to this woman and child? We need Charity. http://en.wikipedia....harity_(virtue)
Paul describes charity it in the First Letter to the Corinthians, chapter 13 (KJV):
“ Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”
Goggle, “Christian Charities to see the massive charitable works of all kinds, all over the world where Christians are trying to stop scenes like the one Hooter presented. How do we know God wanted that? My God doesn’t. I once heard a Jewish Rabbi answer the question, “Where was God?” when addressing the reality of the Holocaust. The rabbi then asked, “Where was Man?” I give a lot to Charity and so does my Church because God and my heart wants me to.. Why does a perfect being want to be obeyed and worshipped? Why does god need eternal praise? Love making between us and God. Sweet talk between lovers. He is after all God.
