    Ummm, according to God's word, he is omnipotent (all powerful)...NOT omniscient (all knowing) Of course God can, has, and does peer into the future and shares his vision with all who will read his word. But as for God knowing each and everyones future...if that were the case, we would have no choice in the matter he himself has set before us. He invites us to choose either the "blessing or the malediction" (everlasting life or everlasting death) If God already knew, the invitation would be for nothing and it would be deceptive. It's up to each individual to decide if they want to be God's friend. And you are free to change your mind if you want. (and God isn't "all seeing"...as in he doesn't watch you make love to your wife. That's what peeping-toms do. He himself created us with a desire for privacy, and He gives it to us)

    Funny...hemp oil was one of the main ingredients used by ancient Israelites for annointing priests. (they used to smear it on their heads) But smoking it wasn't part of the ritual. Smoking is hazardous to your health...ask any M.D. who has taken the hippocatic oath. Will that same M.D. prescribe smoking marijuanna? Sure! Even though he know's it's a violation of the hippocratic oath (do no harm) he will do it for money. But he won't just do it because he thinks it's right....ya gotta pay him to violate his oath.

    They all want to thank God they're alive but the neighbor is dead but that's okay. Did it ever occur to these folks maybe their God is trying to send them a message that the hate they are spewing forth is not pleasing to him and he's letting them know it.

    @Tony...you keep saying that I do not know what I'm talking about over and over, yet you never take issue with anything in particular like other folks do from time to time. Is this a minor oversight on your part perhaps? @Athiesttoo...ditto.
