*Puts on apron* I can't hardly wait. I should have a themed thanksgiving this year. I shall call it Danksgiving. :P
well you all have really touched on a very interesting subject, that is left up to a lot of interpretation depending on which side of life you stand.
again these are just my thoughts and opinions:
if you consider yourself a true dedicated Christian you will take the Bible for god's literal word. Period...
but there's 1 key element I feel everyone has left out of this topic and that god gave us free will. But free will is kind of like a double edged swordyou can either a make your choices as God intended, or fail in your choice and sin against him.
now I am NOT an expert by any means again these are just my thoughts and I have very conflicting thoughts about both sides.
yes I do indulge and I will admit guilt sometimes, I probably ask myself is question over 1,000,000 timesbut then I wonder if that's my free will trying to justify the cause to a means
