I hope someday to ask Him this in person but till then, I was just wondering.......what would you like to ask God????
First, I'll answer your question, because that used to be one of mine. God gave us free will. Without the choice to disobey God and do evil, we don't have free will. Adam was the dummy here; he sat and watched as Eve (who, if you look at Genesis, got secondhand info from Adam as to what was allowed and what was not) fell for that crap. In their society, a word from Adam would've stopped the whole thing. Adam's crime? He agreed with Eve, instead of sticking up for God. Commandment #1: God first.
Second, my questions to God are pretty much answered, because I have a pretty good relationship with Him. Sometimes it seems like He isn't answering, but that's because He's already gone over it somewhere in the Bible, and all I have to do is some homework. Once, I remember getting upset after the Scotland school massacre, and I asked Him, why Christian children? And He said, "Why not?" which I then realized made perfect sense. As usual.
GOD ROCKS! He's real, he's here, and like Rich Mullins sang, "He's AWESOME!"
Sometimes I look at all the prayers I've had answered, from silly things like parking spaces to big things like getting Bibles past scary-looking guards, and I think it's absolutely fantastic that God has answered every single one of them--every single one.
(Not trying to convert anyone, I could give a hoot about that ridiculous argument; you have to have a revelation about God to believe, and I'm not the One to give it to you. I'm just immensely enjoying my life since I discovered Him. And since I'm "histrionic," it's hard to shut me up. :chuckle: Thanks for listening.)
