Like the Chinese workers who make our clothes and 1/3 of everything else? Or some other slavery.
So like where in the holy scriptures does God suddenly take a special interest in the wellbeing of the Chinese? God fully insulted the Chinese by completely ignoring them at a time they were far more advanced than His special chosen people. A Chinese Jesus would have had a more sophisticated audience (untroubled by over-ambitious messiah prophecies), and access to better established written communication culture.
Admit it SkyWriting, your concern for the Chinese arises from modern secular values, not from Biblical/Scriptural morality.
And I'm more than happy to debate the economics of it - maybe in the "Chatter" forum.
In paradise or heaven, you'd be covered. This is neither place.
That is just pure excusiology. Who is the loving Git who made the cruel Earth and the rules for life on Earth? None of the issues or the trouble on earth is beyond God (if God is real). BibleGod is not only responsible but actively looking after us – daily:
Matthew 6 11 Give us this day our daily bread.
Matthew 6 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
If Satan is really running the Earth, why would God/Jesus mislead us like this in the Bible? With false hope? This is an abuse of trust.
Wouldn't an honest God just say: "Unfortunately I can't help you in this world - your duty is to die consumed by faith in Me to enter the next world, where I have jurisdiction to fix ANYTHING."
No part of this statement is accurate.
Half-way down the first page:
Genesis 2 18 Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.”19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. 21 So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. 22 The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.
So this Git Creator gave first thought and priority to cattle. Cattle before woman. And only when asked by Adam who saw all the animals (male and female) paraded before him. I wonder what Adam thought his penis was for? .... accurately irrigating plants I guess. I wonder what God thought Adam's penis was for? .... accurately irrigating plants I guess. But God already had it all worked out for bulls and cows.
The saddest thing about all this, true or not, is that it has set up several thousand years of mankind with a basis for believing woman were not the original intent of God - just a little afterthought "helper" (plaything) requested man, and the cause of all of man's troubles
The moral of the story is nauseating and infinitely regrettable. Neither God nor Jesus affords women the status they deserve and need to operate as equals in the world.
Unless it's all just the pathetic mythology of very primitive misogynistic desert people .... ignorant brutes.
Even more when I have time
