Jesus loves you but...

It is also his "will" that you get raped.

This is a why I am an atheist. None of thus Hocus-Pocus, hypocritical bullshit makes any sense.

1. well yeah if you believe in an all powerful god

Then everything that happens is according to his will and is all part of the plan. Which also makes sin impossible since sin is rebelling against god and that is impossible because everything you ever do is all part of god's divine plan

2. I wonder if Mourdock would feel quite the same way

if he was the rapee. No gift of pregnancy, but lots of opportunity for humility.

10. That's a brilliant point, and one that should be put to him and every other

holy-rolling asshole who tries to say the same.

3. Yes, and this notion is from the same people who brought you

creationism. They are fully willing to embrace that concept without a shred of evidence while ignoring all the evidence for other explanations of how we got here and through what process. And yet, this same gang that can't shoot straight has the unmitigated gall to know the "mind of God". And they think all the rest of us should take their interpretation of how things ARE and SHOULD be seriously. It's just the way it's supposed to be. And they know it. Fer Sure......

5. Biblical Witness

Surely, you must realize that this belief does not comport with Biblical revelation. Man has free will, and some use it for horrific evil. To suggest that God intends it in anyway is simply inconsistent with the witness that Jesus gave to the Father. John wrote, "God is Love."

6. free will is impossible in a god created universe

The universe and everything that happens in it is exactly how god wants it to be if it wasn't god wouldn't have created it this way

7. Genesis

According to Genesis, God created and called it good. It was man's free will that corrupted what God made good. Now, of course, no one is obligated to believe God's disclosure in Scripture, but the testimony of His word suggests that we can't fault God for man's choices.
