i heard today (and most days) that god was on the move. i'm not sure i follow...
there's some problems that i have with the concept of god:
1. i truly can't reconcile the bible to reality (vice versa???)
there are problems that i've run into, like "whatever things you ask for in prayer you will receive" [link], etc
2. i truly also can't reconcile the bible to itself.
"love your neighbor as yourself." & "if someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also" [link]
"'i have delivered him and all his people and his land into your hand'... and we utterly destroyed them... utterly destroying the men, women, and children of every city." [link]
"and the lord listened to the voice of israel and delivered up the canaanites, and they utterly destroyed them and their cities." [link]
"and the lord our god delivered him over to us; so we defeated him, his sons, and all his people. we took all his cities at that time, and we utterly destroyed the men, women, and little ones of every city; we left none remaining. we took only the livestock as plunder for ourselves, with the spoil of the cities which we took." [link]
"you shall not take vengeance" [link]
"take vengeance" [link]
&*)these are preliminary examples(
3. currently having trouble connecting the biblical writings with many previous "moves of god."
mm, mmm, mhmm
