Wow. I've been saying that about you atheists for a couple of YEARS now. I think if it weren't for the atheists jumping in with their insults and "deludeds", some of us Christians could have some very interesting and productive discussions. Of course, you try to derail any discussion we might try to have, and then you post the same five or six questions, worded slightly differently each time. Then you ignore or ridicule the answers because you aren't really interested in answers - you're just looking for another excuse to bash us.
I surely must have missed something, but with your post, I am now assuming that Jennifer is Bestworking? If so thank you for illuminating that as I before chose not to respond, address, or have dialog with Jennifer account of her continual twisting and deliberate misuse of the intent of what I had to say or post.
I can see that the same Bitter poison that was being spread then has not moderated or changed in any way so I shall maintain my decision not to respond and shall include the other ID she choses to use. It serves no profitable purpose to have dialog with someone who has no desire in considerate debate but rather chooses to use deception as a tool to attempt to change and alter what one says without any acknowledgment or regret. Thank you for that illumination.
Additionally Uno is correct in his direct quotes of what I posted in other replies. Your interpretation of my intent and what I actually said is also spot on. The fact still remains that I did not insist that the rain was definite answer to the Prayers but what I did mean was that God could have chosen that moment in time, given the highly publicized public prayer, to make it rain. That if that was God's choice in answering the prayer that it was in a demonstrative way because it did rain in all Georgia Counties over the following day(s) so no County went without rainfall of some measure.
The second direct quote UNO used was also correct and factual. Sonny Perdue did pray and have his specified day of prayer and it did rain the following days and on a day, in certain places, that it was not forecast to rain. True there were areas that it was forecasted to rain and it did rain but the following was also true:
- The day of prayer was set up and organized before the forecast included rain so the prayer was not scheduled to coincide with a specific forecast.
- There were areas that received Rain where it was not forecasted to rain
- There were days where rain was forecast yet did not see rain on the days it was forecasted to rain
- There were numerous local broadcast, in Macon and Atlanta, and weather reports the following days where it was stated that all Georgia counties saw a measure of rain and that no county went totally without.
- It appears that UNO will find anyway to spin his mis-wording of what I actually said in order to try and keep from admitting that he did so incorrectly.
- The post speak for themselves. Although anyone can intrepret them to say what they want I did not insist that this was a direct answer to the prayers but instead that it could have been and that if God did choose to answer those prayers He did so in a convincing or demonstrative way by having no Georgia county go completely dry.
The fact remains that whenever some non-beliver or atheist takes what we say out of context or twist it around they will never own up to it or make correction or retractions. There is much hypocrisy in many things they say or post. They say Christians judge them or people yet they do essentially the very same thing only when they do it they make it personal in a demeaning way.
They jump on me saying I am being repetitious concerning asking the question of why atheist or non-believrs are so drawn to this forum and say they answered it before yet either I wasn't here when they answered it before, to see, or there was no real answer provided. Could just be that it wasn't the question that was ask which caused the problem, and terse responses, but the answers that would have been revealed. Either way it sure ruffled some feathers (as the saying goes).
They, though, harp on essentially the very same things over and over yet expect a pass. They say or do essentially the very same things they are always accusing us of doing but either selectively cannot see it or recognize it themselves.
Thank you O No for correctly pointing out what was obvious by reading what was posted and I also express appreciation to my Christian Brother in Christ, Bill, for his agreement in my previous post.
