    No banana, but I know just as all humans also have to confess that we aint perfect.

    well....that being the true facts of the matter, fearno, God won't expect perfection now, will he?

    my qestion is how will I be compensated for my suffering or shall we forget about that and just focuson my conduct.


    I think there is a hint by what was said in Hebrews about Christ--he endured the cross and scorned the shame, for the glory set before him.

    Once one's conduct is no longer an issue, suffering can also be a doorway for glory.

    EVERYONE inckuding me wants to live a happy and forever without chasing a carrot...

    ...but in that case I would ask God to take away any inclination of evil in me so that I wouldnot do anything bad and lose my everalsting life.

    Life is a carrot, but is it wrong to desire it? I do not think so; you have tasted enough goodness in it to desire it. I think we were deliberately wired this way, we recognize and desire good things.

    What can a broken machine answer back to his inventor if it could talk?

    Broken machines say many different things... we all differ. Read thru this board. There is no "ONE official response". The question is only, for each of us, what is your response?


    Edited to add:

    God won't expect perfection now, will he?

    No, He won't! That's why He only says, have faith.... and see how this alone is not as easy as it sounds. But it is possible--really possible, not just loud talk.

    If "we" use logic, then...logically..."we" DO know what God expects, larc....IMHO

    I only used what you gave me. YOu created me in your image so to condemn me is to condemn yourself. Argue that one Mr Big guy!

    I think I would say...thanks. I don't know what perfection is, but, even with all my troubles, I would say I came out ahead, I'd do it again. And thanks for SEX. If there is a 'paradise' make it on earth. And REALLY, thanks you for SEX ! And in the 'Paradise' if I'm Perfect is SEX gonna be even better ?? Cause if it is, I will say "Thank God," again !
