Why doesn't God not abdicate His Godhood? UncleWaddyHead from YouTube asks a number of questions about God; “Why doesn't God not abdicate His godhood immediately?” Why would God, if he felt a need to create, and is omnipotent, AND opposed to tyranny, not create a race of equals, thereby negating his godhood and superior status once and for all? What is He [God] afraid of? Let’s answer UncleWaddyHead’s 3rd question first; “What is He [God] afraid of?” Answer: Nowhere in the Bible does it say God is afraid of anything. God is not afraid of anything. Next we’ll answer UncleWaddyHead’s 1st part of the 2nd question next. Seeing that it is broken into two parts, we’ll answer the first part of UncleWaddyHead’s 2nd question; “Why would God, if he felt a need to create, and is omnipotent, AND opposed to tyranny, not create a race of equals?” Answer: God did create a race of equals; God created you and me in His image as equals. The human race (the one which every man and woman belongs) was created in God’s image as equals. We are all equal in the eyes of God and were each given a purpose by God: God told us that everything (including you and me) was made for a purpose. [Proverbs 16:4] God created us for His pleasure. [Revelation 4:11] God’s unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. [Ephesians 1:5] We are to choose to become more and more like Christ Jesus and reflect His glory. [2 Corinthians 3:18] God invites us to participate in the greatest, largest, most diverse, and most significant cause in history – his kingdom by sharing His love with everyone. [1 Peter 3:15] We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. [Romans 8:28] God tells us to test ourselves and to examine our faith to see if it is placed into the correct things. [2 Corinthians 13:5] God told us to study and gain knowledge and to not be ignorant of fact and to refuse foolish and ignorant speculations. [Proverbs 4:5, 7; 16:16: 2 Timothy 2:23] 1 Thessalonians 4:7 tells us that God has not called us for the purpose of impurity, but in sanctification. 1 Timothy 4:7 - God tells us to have nothing to do with worldly myths and fables and to discipline ourselves for the purpose of godliness. 1 Peter 2:21 – God informs us that our purpose is to use Christ Jesus as an example and to follow in Christ Jesus teachings. Jesus tells us in John 15:9-17 and...

Do Babies and the Mentally ill Sin thus go to Hell? justbekindtooall from YouTube asks; “Tell me how babies and people with mental disabilities, sin? What about animals, do they sin? Answer: First, let’s define what “sin” is. From the Merriam-Webster Online dictionary, the following are definitions of the word, sin: sin 1a : an offense against religious or moral law b : an action that is or is felt to be highly reprehensible c : an often serious shortcoming : fault 2a : transgression of the law of God b : a vitiated state of human nature in which the self is estranged from God You and I sin when we are not following God’s commandments for us to follow. God gave us the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2-17) to follow and adhere to so that we know what God considers good and what He considers evil. In God’s telling us to follow the Ten Commandments we know what God considers right for us and what He considers wrong for us. In Mark 12:28-34, Jesus actually breaks it down into the two greatest commandments that we should follow; love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and love your neighbor (everyone around you) as yourself. Just two commandments for us to follow and we (you and I) can’t even do that. It is in your, my, everyone’s nature (including babies’) to “sin” because Adam and Eve partook from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil against God’s command for them to not eat from it. From that point on, because Adam and Eve are our oldest set of ancestors (btw; the Human Genome Project confirms that we are all from a set of common ancestors which the Bible has always said was so), we (everyone, you, and me, including babies) have sin in our nature. Animals do not sin because they were not created in the image of God as you and I were and were not given as we were the ability to reason with knowledge of right and wrong. When Adam was told by God to not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Adam knew at that point, right and wrong. Adam knew wrong was eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil because God told him to not eat from it. Adam knew it was right to not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil because God told him to not eat from it. Once Adam ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Adam knew the difference between good (God) and evil (Satan). In other words after Adam ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and...
