That doesn't make much sense. If He only gave people what they could handle, then why do mothers kill their children? Why do people kill themselves? Why do parents walk out on their families? Because they couldn't handle the hand they were dealt.

You're clearly stuck on this belief that there's no possible form of birth control out there for you, so please, by all means.. keep having unprotected sex and see how that works out for you. :)

God also gives you free will. You can't just apply one excerpt.

I generally say that on purpose in an effort to sound ghetto.

That doesn't really apply here. Yes, God gives you the free will to end things that you can't handle. You still can't handle it, though; rendering the whole "God only gives you what you can handle" argument moot.



I guess your interpretation would depend on your definition of "able to handle".

God also doesn't give it, anyway. He ALLOWS things to happen, and how a person handles it(or doesn't handle it) is based upon their own free will.

If you choose not to handle it, that doesn't mean you couldn't.

First of all, no where in scripture does it say this. This is a common mis quote from 1 Cor 10:13.
The problem lies in how you handle the situation. You can choose to walk away from the problem OR you can look to Him to get you through.
A lot of people choose to walk away because they don't believe in God or don't believe that He is mighty enough to do what the Word says He can do.
*Either way, it's not my choice to make for someone else. There are many things in this life that are hard to "swallow" for me. But I've come to realize that it is impossible to try and make everyone see things the way I do. We don't all have the same beliefs. And Jesus love everyone...EVERYONE. He didn't place judgement or conditions on that love.
I understand where you're coming from...I get it, but you need to take a step back and understand where everyone else is coming from.

I hope you didn't think that I was trying to belittle anyone's beliefs in God. I really wasn't, and I'm sorry if it came off that way.



I am a Christian.. was.. am. Whatever. You get the point. This is just one scripture interpretation that I've always had trouble understanding.

That's because it is so often misquoted and misinterpreted. A better explanation of it is that God knows people will be tempted, and that bad things are going to happen, but He provides help for them in those times.

I don't think you were belittling anyone's belief in God. I was just trying to explain that bit of scripture to you. Many people misunderstand that passage. The rest of it was just a friendly reminder that we don't all see things the same way. :wink:

No need to disrespect others beliefs. You can have yours and ill have mine. It's that easy.

Do you read? You know, like the whole post I made about apologizing if I offended anyone, and saying that if it sounded like I was belittling anyone for their beliefs, that I absolutely did not mean it that way? :idea:
