Re: The Need For Divine Intervention
In the past, the nation itself would repent and pray for Divine Intervention.

I'm not sure what instances you mean here. Tell me about the nation repenting.

Re: Imagine If You Dare
I don't doubt that (my) God is "inaccurate", I just doubt that He's fictional.

Interesting. Do you believe that the basis for your belief is something that would stand up to the scrutiny of a scientific investigation?

If not, then why shouldn't that affect your opinion of the beliefs of others regarding say the Flood.

Some of us are worried about just how much damage he will do in his last couple of weeks as president, to make it easier for the NY Times and Washington post to try to destroy Trump's presidency. -- marc9000

Re: Imagine If You Dare
My belief in God is based on direct experience. Nobody here today saw the Flood.

No, they did not, but then nobody saw the sun forming from a ball of hydrogen gas either. Most of us don't even have personal experience with the evidence that the sun formed in that way.

I hope it does not seem that I am picking on you. I wrestle with the same questions.
