Thanx for your response. I want more dialog is one reason I'm here.

>>>Faith is the only real weapon...???

<<<One question: why do you see fit to tell God how to be?

Oral human tradition followed by human testimony tells us about what a few slaves of Pharoah thought would be a good model of God. They carefully sculptured God in their image and likeness and cut off any notion that God's world even existed before 6,000 years ago, coinciding with the earliest evidence of the oral tradition. (Less for humans to explain with one voice about who we are, and how and when we got here).

I am happy knowing that God is doing God's work, in God's way, and in God-time. I ask no favors nor special consideration. I also am in no way obligated to believe in God, since God just is. I accept whatever God wants to be, or even change into at a whim, and still pledge my allegiance without obligation. Can you do that?

Personified evil is a waste of vanity and arrogance by anyone not willing to accept their personal limitations and dysfunction as the human manifestation of evil where ever humans are. I intuit that God would never waste the time or effort keeping a "motherly eye" on anyone to see if they goof up and respond to the siren songs of that witty character known as the devil.

When you take that first step toward defining evil as someone or something you must use violence to vanquish, you miss the whole point. If our mission is to bring order out of chaos, violence toward the devil by wielding faith as a weapon is now a step backward and not good for mankind.

If I look at the evil I could potentially perpetrate, its more than enough of a job to overcome it all. I don't need to go committing violence against extrinsic and personified sources of evil until I clean up my own mess. I accept on faith that God gave me the tools and the plan for doing just that. I need no reward from God for doing what I am able to do by design.
