    It's easy being a nagging back seat driver, but if you were at the helm how would you go about things? Would you create things? If so, what would you create and how would they act?

    I don't think I'd create imperfect beings, then punish them eternally for being imperfect. That just seems cruel.

    Then you would create "perfect" being? What are "perfect" beings?

    In short, what would be "right" or "wrong" in your world and how would you address "wrong"? Then again, if you don't allow "wrong", how would you control them not to do "wrong"?

    Right and wrong wouldn't be any different in "my world", that's not the point. MY point was about eternal punishment.

    I'd turn all the Democrats into pillars of salt.

    I would post all the answers on the internet, and direct the traffic to go there.

    Agreed. We are all a small part of God, and Yeshua is our Big Brother.

    I just wish more people would act like it.

    But...........asking a single cell what if they were the whole body is kind of a bad question to ask. Yes, the cell can be aware of itself and the surrounding cells and organ systems, but how is a muscle cell in the foot going to be aware of all the cells in the brain?
