But you see my friends, God saving him was different than those examples you gave. God gave him a reason to straighten out his life. A friend of him told him about God and Jesus, and he decided he wanted to go to Heaven and turn his life around.
Hypothetically, if God doesn't exist.
And your friend decided he wanted to go to heaven and turn his life around.
What would be different?
False hopes? I kind of see the point your trying to make here, but I don't think that anything else could have motivated him, and that God worked within his life to make it happen.
Self-confidence works wonders if you have enough of it.
Edit: If God is all-powerful, then why did he have to rest on the 7th day?
If he is so important, then why do we have to worship him - he's clearly too high and mighty to care what we (insignificant beings to his greatness) think.
If he is all powerful (again) then why do we exist? Are humans merely his playtoys? Is he just being "a nice guy" by putting us on this planet?
Dacrimoss: What do you think of the Gospel of Judas? (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_judas
for more information)
I believe he rested to signify the importance of the sabbath? You can look it up in the beginning of the Bible, I'm sure it will tell you there.
The point that hes is so high and mighty and does care about us is truly an amazing thing. He loves everyone, and cares about them.
I don't really understand how being if you are all powerful means that we have no point? If he wasn't all powerful would there be a reason for us? Maybe we are his play toys? I probably won't know until I die.
