I see that you have spent a considerable amount of time thinking about this post. Your points are well reasoned and insightful. I see what you are saying, and you are right. I did give the impression that God will keep us from getting sick, but that's not what I intended to say.

What I wanted to say is this: As Christians, we don't have to be afraid of getting the Swine flu and dying from it. The television newscasters are constantly talking about it, and pointing out how deadly it is. I'm just saying, don't be afraid of this particular sickness, the swine flu, because you have a God that loves you and watches out for you. I believe that God provides for us and protects us.

There are several Bible verses I could have quoted, but Psalm 91 means a lot to me personally. It is one of my favorite scripture passages, and I believe that it is the testimony of God, and it is his promise to protect us. Especially the last three verses, where the narrative changes voices from that of the Psalmist to that of God, and God says these words about the Psalmist,

"Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him."

The last verse clearly shows that this is talking about men, and not Jesus. Jesus' life on earth was short. He is Eternal Life and He is Salvation. "With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation."

I do disagree with you concerning the Psalms. I believe they are just as much the word of God as anything else, because of 2 Timothy 3:16-17, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

You're right. They don't have have a mind to work. Because, their parents neglected to teach them the value of it.

They haven't noticed that successful people work very hard.

Seth,

There is still hope for us. Fifty-seven percent of all Americans believe that the Bible is the word of God.

Thank you! It takes incredible faith to believe that there is no Creator when you are standing in the midst of his creation. One Darwinist can tell the others that we used to be Jellyfish and they would believe it. Just don't try and tell them that there is a God who created everything.

I could show a Darwinist a pair of designer jeans and claim that they created themselves, and he wouldn't buy it. Yet he believes that the human circulatory system, in which blood transfers oxygen from the lungs to every part of the body, just happened on its own.
