Everyone calls out to God when in a foxhole..............

Really, these young folks had faith.

I perceive there are some among us who have never found themselves unable to save themselves. That day will come. Curious what they will do.

Horse poop - there's nothing but atheists in a fox hole, otherwise what's the worry?

And what if the guys shooting at you are divinely inspired.....

Then you would be a fool not to be on their side...

Or if you are an atheist, why would you be in a foxhole to begin with?

Just not the way I see it buddy.

BTW, God does not put man to war. Man puts man to war.
And on your other point, God has put the clean water there, but man has to make the right decisions to get it out the ground.

If you insist

Choosing sides....ever the quandary




When the time comes if I am lucid and coherent enough to sense my impending end I will sing my death song with the same zeal, vigor and dignity that I have lived. No groveling at the feet of any celestial dictator, real or imagined.

I have been told that all prayers are answered.

Sometimes we like the answer, sometimes we don't.

So how did they get swept out there? Swimming, small boat, paddle board??
Glad they’re ok.

Just reach up, huh? How’s that working out for you?

You’re very confused, it’s actually the inverse of your statement that is correct.

I'd be praying to the God of Hooters that some dumb blond would drop out of the sky with giant fake tits that I'd hold onto like a Mae West PFD.

It's just as plausible as praying to any other God.

So no mention of how they ended up out that far, sorry but it doesn't pass the sniff test.

Hey we all have different beliefs but it is my belief that God is always there for me. If he would not be I never would have been able to make it when my brother died at 23 years old, when I went through a divorce, lost my in-laws, when my mom had cancer, dealing with my dad with dementia and lost my business twice due to nature. God never said life would be easy. I have my share of issues but I have hope in Jesus and He is what gets me through. If you donít feel the same way, I have no issue with that. So to answer your question, itís working out great for me and my family. Though I may have die for Christ, I will still serve him!

Many STILL think nothing can create everything
we are in a sad lost time

for they thought it wise to not retain the knowledge of god so he gave them over to a reprobate mind

2019 sad hateful world.

God isnt real real god isnít needed. We are doing great now that we are shutting him out. Good grief!

we came from a rock nothing created all of the order.
Happens all of the time no big deal. Sun rises and sets every day thatís not a miracle

there is no god........... thatís what they say.
every ode to busy to see the creation for the awesome miracle that it is. Take the stability of our environment for granted.

Theres no god
we dont need god
this nation and world are getting better the more we shut him out.

Give me me a break dude.

Get your azz swept out to to see god haters I bet you will have the peace and quiet then that you need in order to think right.
you gonna cry out to the rock you think created you? You wonít....... Jesus. You WILL call his name trust me
