Why don’t they just pray the storm away?

  1. republicans had to cancel a day of their convention because of a storm.
    i wonder why the republicans didnt just get together and have a group "pray away the storm" session. since republicans consider themselves the party of god and since i hear them say this election is about reclaiming america for god surely god could have found some time on his busy schedule to help them out?
     
  2. Maybe they figured out god was against them when he didn't grant Rick Perrys prayer for rain
     
  3. The storm saved Florida from a trip from Biden. There is a God.
     
  4. Remember the drought you've been bitching about for weeks and asking "why doesnt God help them out with rain?" Well there you go. Here comes the rain!


    /facepalm
     
  5. You just can't pray away Acts of God.
     
  6. you are the one inventing straw arguments but:
    You are the same stupid fvcker who day after day pounds it that a tax will solve our weather problems.
     
  7. "If God was all powerful, why does He allow bad things to happen"......

    Humans like to think that The Infinite One shares their innate desire to control everything. But why would He be confined by the flaws of human nature?

    It may be that He desires for us to become like Him (creators, in love), and rule ourselves, with all the problems that arise, for the sake of becoming adults......

    I won't rule out the fact that there may be a correlation between bad weather and degenerate populations.......

    As it says in a certain Book "by their fruits you will know them"

    :eek:
     
  8. then, did jesus lie?


    1) And Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, `Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it will happen. "And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." (Matthew 21:21-22 NAS)



    2) Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. (Matthew 7:7-8 NAB)



    3) Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst. (Matthew 18:19-20 NAS)



    4) Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him. Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours. (Mark 11:24-25 NAB)



    5) And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. (Luke 11:9-13 NAB)



    6) And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it. (John 14:13-14 NAB)



    7) If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you. (John 15:7 NAB)



    8) It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. (John 15:16 NAB)



    9) On that day you will not question me about anything. Amen, amen, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. Until now you have not asked anything in my name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete. (John 16:23-24 NAB)
     
  9. shouldnt an all knowing god know where we plant crops and send the rain there?
    what good does it do to send rain where they dont need it?
     
  10. It's pretty clear you were not chosen to understand. I think you hate God for not giving you a perfect life.
