I would be interested to know what Fainn would need from God in order for God to be good to Fainn.

I find it interesting to see how CPS talks about Fainn. Day before the election, probably stressed out beyond belief, and we are talking about him like he can't read or is merely an academic subject.

Let's send some positive waves now. Good vibrations.

Been praying for him, but point taken.

No, you didn't. Rather, you changed my post to your desired end. That is something I don't appreciate folks doing. I posted exactly what I meant to post, thank you.

I also mean to post this:

Why do the rest of you believe God is good?

To be clear about my own position, I don't believe in an omni God like most of the rest of you, so the question is based upon what perception of God you have, not of what I have. If I did believe in an omni God who is personally interested in humanity I can certainly understand several reasons why God should be believed as being, "good." The implications of such a being being evil would be deeply troubling and unworkable really.

I have also watched Fainn struggle lately. I would heartily agree that if he persists to believe that an omni God exists and said God takes any interest in him, then he really needs to come to grips with the faith the rest of you have, that God is good. Otherwise, he would be better off not believing in an omni God at all! Just my .02. Curious for sure.

My intent was to send hope that things get better for Fainn and that some day his relationship with God is repaired.

I'm sorry if what I wrote makes you feel like a 'project' that needs to be fixed Fainn.

I didn't see that this was in the testimony thread. Sorry Jocose.

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
