I believe that if you truely seek God and ask him to guide you, i believe that he will close the gap between the path you have chosen for yourself and the one he has chosen for you.

Again, we have free will, what we do with it is our choice.

To understand, Lets take a hypothetical scenario. The recent superbowl.

Suppose Manning prayed with everything he has to God so he wins the bowl, and lets also assume Brady did the same thing.

Obviously Manning won and Brady lost. One could either assume that God listened to Manning and not Brady OR, it wouldnt have mattered because if no one prayed, there would still be a winner and a loser..

But what if God listened to both of them? You might say, well that is impossible because he answered one but not the other. true, however, what if God thought in the ultimate path of things, Manning will learn more if he wins the bowl than if he lost and Brady will ultimately learn more things if he lost than if he won?

This is just a suggestion. Maybe what we ask for and dont get sometimes happens because what we think is right for us and will benefit us, in fact could be the oppisite, but we just cant see it yet.

Just a suggestion.



But if one person deviates from the path they were supposed to go on, it people up everyone else's paths.  Butterfly effect...

Some people believe in destiny and free will, which is silly.  You can't have free will and a destiny at the same time.  If you're going to end up somewhere regardless, then your choices mean nothing.

2.  The devil made them do it. So if the devil can make people do things, and god cant make people stop, why do people pray to god?


Yeah, the devil tried to make me do bad things, but the love of God stopped me from doing it. Get it now?

I would think we would give God more credit there in terms of if one doesnt follow his path chosen having a butterfly effect. I think he would have contingencies........

The biggest problem is that most of us deviate from the path intended which wont lead us to happiness even though you think it will........

Just something to chew on.
