    Is it because God is drawing the Holy Spirit out of this world. Less and less people are being saved. God said, My spirit shall not always strive with man.

    Because people like you keep looking for GOD to do what people should do.

    FREE WILL, remember?

    Get off your knees and stand up and make a difference.

    "This doctrine, "the idea that humans are peaceable by nature and corrupted by modern institutions—pops up frequently in the writing of public intellectuals like José Ortega y Gasset ("War is not an instinct but an invention"), Stephen Jay Gould ("Homo sapiens is not an evil or destructive species"), and Ashley Montagu ("Biological studies lend support to the ethic of universal brotherhood")," he writes. "But, now that social scientists have started to count bodies in different historical periods, they have discovered that the romantic theory gets it backward: Far from causing us to become more violent, something in modernity and its cultural institutions has made us nobler.""

    Froggy, stop blaming God for your choices.

    Stop assuming that God has nothing for you to do.

    Actually repent and change your life to live according to His standards.

    And stop denying the revelations of God.

    So the church of Joe doesn't believe the world is evil. And that God will strive with man forever. A man made religion will never hold up to God, get right with God and quit being a hypocrite.

    Knowing of the Church of Joe followers, that sounds normal.

    If you don't like the message of repentence, don't complain to me froggy. Just stop blaming God when we are responsible for our own sins.
