1Thess 5:21 Question all things and hold on to what is Good. This is a charge meant for those who think themselves Christian. We are to question the foundational as well as the questionable, and hold on to the truth. Because I've done this my answers may be... Different than the typical Christian

Hi Drich0150!

The main question I have about the God of the Bible is:

What is it about God that makes him worthy of being praised?

Hi Drich0150!

For some He is not.

Not all belong to God.

For those that do, belonging to God in of it self is worthy of praise.

Nice flower. Did you know that flowers are the sex organs of some plants?

Is that how you're going to answer any question we ask?

If so, why should we ask any? I'd learn more watching a televangelist.

Yup, and did you know my 'flower' was as tall as my house and weighed like 6 lbs... maybe that is why I use it as an avatar..

Again because you want to know the truth..

The truth is not everyone can worship God as they are literal slaves to their sin. They belong to someone else. therefore for them they will have no interest in worshiping God.

For those who belong to God and not sin... This is reason enough to worship God.

Just because my answer does not fit your preconceived outline as to how a cookie cutter Christian should answer, doesn't mean the answer I gave is not truthful.

Why would anyone read the bible cover to cover???

The bible is a series of books and letters, compiled by subject matter first and not necessarily chronologically arranged. I have read all subject matters concerning the bible at least once. other matters I've spent some time with others.

"Don't speak to me about your religion;
first show it to me in how you treat other people. 
Don't tell me how much you love your God;
show me in how much you love all God's children. 
Don't preach to me your passion for your faith;
teach me through your compassion for your neighbors. 
In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have  to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give."

good thing you asked that question... I've been to other message boards and not once in like 6 or 7 years did anyone ask the question you asked... I've like waiting so long to use that line.. I even practice typing over and over, but after 1000s and 1000s of posts I gave up hope. then boom! Validation!!!

Thanks Un-beave
