    Rosary hocus pocus aside, faith is a choice.

    I choose not to have or practice faith, and in stead base what I believe on evidence and critical inquiry.

    In the same way, if god is able, and does not, god is immoral.

    If god does not exist, that explains a lot of suffering.
    So, if this were God you'd worship him?

    I always have a point. However, you're leap to dismissal without waiting for an answer warrants I dismiss you; as I assume most here have done already.

    You think a god should be some magical being who never lets anyone suffer. Which is likely as far as you got in your reasoning, so you have no solid foundation for your fairy tale views. You're so limited in your thought process you can't even begin to comprehend any possible reasons God might have for allowing us to suffer.

    uh no, i said someone who worships God fares better than those who dont.

    What you just said is completely irrelevant to that and this thread. (as usual)

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    YES !

    it is written, "the race is not to the swift, the battle is not won by strength, not by the stength of the army, or of the man, but BY MY SPIRIT SAYETH THE LORD ! "

    whether athletics, war, finances, the flesh profits nothing. YHWH IS IN CHARGE ! And the outcome rests in HIS HANDS.

    it is written "without faith it is impossible to please God".
    and
    it is written "since HE(GOD)(YHWH) did not withhold HIS SON(crucified!!!), likewise HE(GOD)(YHWH) will not withhold anything needed from those who TRUST HIM, WHO CALL ON HIS NAME FOR HIS HELP (turn to HIM to be healed/saved/rescued from their own sin and from all the power of the enemy)

    I'd think God has better things to do than help a team win the Super Bowl
