What do you make of this?
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
I am thinking that Jesus was the one here that made the big sacrifice as it turned out, but no doubt it was a gift from God...
God could have sent another flood or something, he sent Jesus.

So if there is another flood or a large rock comes to us from space, will this also be a gift, or will it be a damnation, for since the death of Christ, nothing has changed on this planet.
We are still the murderous lot today, as we were then. Or does God no longer need to intervene, for today we can do that job without divine intervention.

God will mix it up with the most gangsta' of 'em. Just ask those who missed the ride on Noah's arc.
No promises of a butterflies and bunnies lifestyle were made for this life.
The only utopia was the Garden of Eden, and mankind blew that. Now we are on our own. We have free will.
How we conduct ourselves in this life will have a direct effect on our afterlife, if you choose to believe in that.
Otherwise, do unto others.
God reached down to request a relationship with each person on earth.

Grace was what was offered, but many will not see the way.
That is what happened. God did 'not' force any to make a decision, God did not destroy those who have rejected him. Although there are consequences for rejection.
Those who dance, appear insane to those who do not hear the music.
Those who believe, appear ignorant to those who do not know God.
Thats just crazy
