    I think that ‘bringing’ God into the matter in the first place is part of the problem. God is there already! He is in everything He chooses to be in and we cannot be so presumptuous to be ‘bringing Him into things’. And again, JUDGEMENT is not ONLY for that which is BAD. It determines both the GOOD, the BAD, and then the UGLY and EVERYTHING else in between. Still wondering whose side God is on? ASK HIM! He can SPEAK for HIMSELF!

    I’m sorry if I piss you off. I AM on God’s side and I BELIEVE He’s on my side no matter what comes my way. Its a question of faith. You either believe or you don’t. That doesn’t change God. It changes you.
