agreed. agreed. I'm not sure that those statements add up to this one. Well, let me agree with you, first. Even a Christian who says they have all the answers and doesn't then defer to God is probably one to be skeptical of. We don't even know God's exact plan for our own lives, even daily, let alone someone else's.And there's even disagreement within the church about the origin of the universe and life (is Genesis 1 literal? But I maintain the how of creation does not determine the who, which I'm borrowing from someone. ) and the nature of the Holy Spirit, so I, ultimately, agree with your initial point at face value. However, understanding the nature of these questions is different from being omniscient, or knowing all the answers. And it's not unreasonable for someone to discern a good deal about the nature of life, even from a day-to-day observance of reality. We can observe that love conquers hate, for instance, within our personal relationships. Or, a better example, that forgiveness brings healing. Between our conscience and feelings, and then observing the world around us, I think we can figure out a lot. Like how we're stuck on this planet with tons of other people, and that it seems inescapable that interaction is part of our purpose. You see what I'm saying? You can reason a lot of it out, and, accordingly, I think man, collectively, has come to a general consensus of what life is about. Freedom comes to mind. But, if there is a God, then it's just a matter of him revealing the answers, if he so chooses, however he feels is right. So, unless you are an atheist, it is not inconceivable that someone could know a great deal about the meaning of life, the universe, and everything, if God reveals it. I'm not sure agrarian quite fits, in the manner I think you mean... and, once again, I don't believe Christ wants us to fight for one style of economics over another, but that said, no. Rich giving to poor is absolutely wonderful, but it doesn't work well forced, imo. Jesus also says you reap what you sow. So, it's not quite so simple. Could you be more specific? Perhaps I have missed your point. Commander Krix I like it, though I think there is at least some evidence on both sides. Maybe I need it explained to me..
