Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They're all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

Whether you're rich or whether you're poor
It matters not to Him
He remembers where you're going
Not where you've been

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They're all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

If your heart is troubled
Don't worry, don't you fret
He knows that you have heard His call
And he won't forget

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They're all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

All around the world tonight
His children rest assured
That He will watch and He will keep us
Safe and secure

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They're all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

Are you saying this way of handling your monotonous, stupid and cruel life is better?

Did your study of Religion set you free? (a conclusion of disbelief in neither here nor there, that you made a decision is the guiding component)

JBEEE, Jesus loves the little children, really? I suppose he must. That is why he kills millions of them by violence, starvation, disease, slave labour and sexual exploitation by adults etc., so that he could be near to them.

Hi MHz ,I think that if you will find the reason why your life is monotonous , stupid and crual ( and that is something that only you can do -regarding your own life )at the same time you will find the answers to allot of your questions .

good for Jesus, I'm sure he did, but according you the believers, god was his
dad, and he doesn't give a flying fu--,'saucer' about the children, he lets horrible things happen to them, in many different forms, and how anyone
could pray and be obedient to a monster like that, I would only wonder.

yeah right, when all the good things happen, god gets the praise, when the
bad things happen god gets off the hook.
I'm so glad I don't have to even think about things like that in my real life.
People are responsible for 'everything', maybe the exception is natural events,
earthquakes etc. Because in my world there is no one else to give bouquets to,
or trash, it's 'us' all the way, on both counts.

Pan was a cool god. Half man half goat, chasin' all the nymphs around the forest with an erection. Ya gotta love this guy. Didn't cause anybody any harm and for this the church vilified him as the devil. How come priests and bishops and cardinals all run around in dresses and wear pointy hats? All that celibacy makes them crazy and they just hate that Pan is gettin' some.

Which is where the 'horny old goat' saying came from.

Sir Joe,
You have studied the bible extensively. You know we have free will. Jesus is not violating the children nor is he starving them or creating disease. We have played this same old song over and over. You won't change your beliefs and I won't change mine.
I thought this was a Christian thread. You are an athiest. Are you hoping to change some minds? I don't try to change yours. I just feel it's your problem - not mine.

You're an authority are you!! My life is far from monotonous, stupid or cruel. I have a full, rich life with a wonderful family and we all believe in God. You sound like your life could be monotonous, stupid and cruel and bitter.

Islandpacific, isnít God (and by implication, Jesus) supposed to be responsible for everything that goes on in the world? I thought the Christian belief was that God created the world, he looks after it, he answers our prayers, nothing happens without Godís permission, without Godís consent.

If that is the case, isnít he responsible for the death of millions of children each year? Even if you claim that Devil is responsible for it, surely God is stronger than Devil, the Devil cannot wreck such havoc without Godís consent? God could stop the carnage if he wanted to?

And if he is indeed wrecking such a havoc without Godís consent, that God would like to stop the carnage, slaughter of children but cannot do anything about it, that would make the Devil as powerful, as strong as God, which is clearly against your faith.

Surely there is some inconsistency somewhere.

The Bible states that Jesus is the Word (God) made flesh. As I said - God gave us free will. God created earth and man (I'm not a total fan of evolution even though I believe it has it's place). God is responsible for what happens in your life if you open the door and let him in. Even then, we have free will and still believe we know what's best and crap happens. God does answer our prayers. It's just that sometimes, the answer is NO.

If that is the case, isnít he responsible for the death of millions of children each year? Even if you claim that Devil is responsible for it, surely God is stronger than Devil, the Devil cannot wreck such havoc without Godís consent? God could stop the carnage if he wanted to?
Disease and hunger are probably the biggest killers of children world wide - both caused by and in most cases, preventable by man - not God. Would you or most of us, go find a hungry person (child or adult) and bring them into your home for a meal? Most of us are afraid to do so these days. God trumps the devil if there is a devil.
And if he is indeed wrecking such a havoc without Godís consent, that God would like to stop the carnage, slaughter of children but cannot do anything about it, that would make the Devil as powerful, as strong as God, which is clearly against your faith.
Man wreaks havoc on the whole world and mostly in the name of God!
Surely there is some inconsistency somewhere.

Yep - it's people - The good, the bad and the ugly! Particularly all those who use the name of God to wreak havoc.
