If you could ask God any question, what would you ask?

Will I be saved? Does everything really happen for a reason? Are my deceased loved ones doing OK?

Actuall, crucified himself. John 1:1-5

freethinker... those who believe know the Triune God is not about death, illness, sorrow, pain, and all that garbage.
Our decisions utilizing the gift of Free Will (not 'sin' as 4shizzle would shout to you) to make unwise decisions. God doesn't just sit on a cloud and decide.. "Oh, let's send cancer down there with an ample dose of polio and crippling disabilities, and....". If God is looking down at all (Jefferson and other Deists believe God created and moved on) God must be saying "What WAS I thinking?"

Romans 5:12
New American Standard Bible
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned—

You don't understand.

Who is your diety...besides yourself?

How does dust and rocks turn into people ?

I provided sperm for my wife's egg. Which of those is rocks and which is dust?

That slamming door you just heard is another 100 confused Christians running away from your absurd attitudes.

4shittzle... who is YOUR deity?
Seriously, please enlighten us. Cuz I wanna get as far away as possible from such an uncaring, unloving, restrictive deity.
....and hordes are following me, thanks to you.

John 8:24

Amplified Bible (AMP)

24 That is why I told you that you will die in (under the curse of) your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He [Whom I claim to be—if you do not adhere to, trust in, and rely on Me], you will die in your sins.

@ 4shizzle:

I don't understand astrology either, but so what?

Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

Romans 8:5-7

5 Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. 7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. 8 That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.

That would be you two.
