Trust in God's Justice - You know it makes Sense.
« on: February 24, 2014, 08:26:33 AM »
The court systems of most countries fail to satisfy the majority of the inhabitants. The people are either appalled at the liberal judges or horrified at their savagery. The innocent are convicted, the guilty escape. Man is fallible and weak.

It is clear that this state of affairs cannot continue and a radical overhaul of the system is needed.

Before you, is someone you think might have murdered someone. You have the dead body, but no evidence at all. Even if there were evidence, some smart-ass lawyer would start arguing the toss with $10 words that might trick a jury into acquitting.

What is required is something we can all believe in. Something simple yet certain.

Now at least 80% of the US is Christian and believes that God is right… or at least they say they do. If we add to this the fact that God is the greatest and final judge and knows all and can see into the hearts of men, then the answer becomes clear:

We cast lots.

Jon1:3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
Jon1:4 But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.
[. . .]
Jon1:7 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.

In short: Jonah upset God by trying to leave for Tarshish, so God sent a storm. To discover who was the earthly cause of the storm, the crew cast lots and immediately Jonah was discovered to be responsible. Johnathan was also judged by lot (1 Sam 14:42) and Achan seems to have been (Jos 7).

Those of faith will accept this without question. Nothing is truer or more scientific than the Bible.

If you are an immoral, lying thieving atheist without a moral compass, you can take your chances with “man-made” justice, but Christians, professing their undying faith in God will be judged by casting lots.

The Bible explains how this works and why it is fair.

Prov 18:18 The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.

Prov 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.

The casting of lots is non-random. It is 100% reliable and accurate.

…or perhaps Christians don’t believe any of this garbage and don’t believe God can do anything at all. I suspect most Christians believe in God right up until the moment that it might affect them adversely but are not bothered if their God's rules affect others badly.

The excuse for the happy go lucky non-violent God is Jesus dying on the cross,no? The Hijacking of the Jewish God,and the taming of said god is a puzzle,Christians tamed God,dumbed him down and neutered him. The Jewish God is an angry wraith filled vengance seeking God. The Christian God is a neutered pet
