    If you were god for 1 day

    what would you do?

    Remember 2 things:

    1. You exist because of the faith of the believers. Any actions to proof your existence is forbidden.

    2. You need the free will of the believers to trust and love you. Any actions to direct change the hearts of the human is forbidden.


    You have one day. What will you do?

    I'd make it so I'd will every lottery in the country that day so tomorrow when I'm not a god anymore I'd be filthy rich.

    Your 2 prerequisites are not consistent with any concept of "God" as I know it.

    That isn't God, that is a monarch.

    Same thing GOD had been doing since creation.

    Watch the cosmos unfold without any supernature interference.

    Its too complicated to even fathom, but off the top of my head, I would love for all deadbeat dads (and moms) to experience an overwhelming sense of love and responsibility for their children.

    I'd kill everyone's first born and then convince everyone left that I loved them.

    That wouldn't be possible would it?

    1. I wouldn't and couldn't be.
    2. For the sake of playing the game on the thread here, I'd quote perhaps this message.


    God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity

    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

    For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

    Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. -Romans 1:18-26
    Romans 1:17-26 - PassageLookup - New International Version, ©2010 - BibleGateway.com

    And then also perhaps more importantly share with them Who Jesus Christ is and "Romans Road"...

    "The first verse on the Romans Road to salvation is Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." We have all sinned. We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one who is innocent. Romans 3:10-18 gives a detailed picture of what sin looks like in our lives. The second Scripture on the Romans Road to salvation, Romans 6:23, teaches us about the consequences of sin - "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The punishment that we have earned for our sins is death. Not just physical death, but eternal death!"..
