God won't just rain down freaking manna from heaven. I mean, God helps those who help themselves. He doesn't encourage laziness in the Bible - yet you wouldn't know it from the amount of JW's who pioneer while collecting free money off government assistance . God might provide, sure- but he doesn't want us sitting on our a$$. Peace out, Mr. Flipper
To me, God is a masterful observer. He may help things along, but in no way would he use forms of micromanagement.
Life is a chaotic mess of fortune and misfortune. We are the variables, that is well documented... what is not well documented are the innerworkings of our creator's masterwork...we know what we are, not why. We may try to fool ourselves into some sort of fantasy that satisfies what we would like our relationship with God to be like. But, in the end, these types of fantasies end up behaving more like overly loose shoe strings... getting in the way all the time!
I think it's time for people to start examing what we have and less of what we believe we have, because we all know we can't agree on the "beliefs" but we hope we can agree, for the most part, with the "cold facts of life."
Technologically we are at a point of extreme potential or catastrophic loss. Frankly, I don't think it's beyond our Creator to watch us destroy ourselves... as an observer that would be most facinating!
