How many times does a loving, all powerful creator need to wipe out his creation and start over? Why even once?
If god loves mankind and life is so precious, why didn't he bring the end to this terrible world at 1 billion (2,3,4,5,6 billion) people?
I think you and I chatted about this one once or twice ; but I used this with my brother during our BIG TALK. When he barely mentioned the FDS, I said, "oh about that. Why does a combination of four words used in one scripture and in one translation demand such reverence? If you look at the words within the context of the scripture, the onus is on the 'FDS' as to whether he is treating the master's domestics properly. Nowhere are the domestic's actions or motives toward the 'FDS' questioned or emphasized. Seems like the WTBS are adding additional factors to Jesus' illustration, changing the intent/meaning/focus of it." (hmmmmm?????)
