>What were we? Before conversion, we were unrighteous, alienated, and enemies of God. And this is not figurative language or hyperbole. We concern ourselves with terror attacks, invest in costly alarm systems for our homes, and fret over whether our cars have side air bags—all in an attempt to feel safe and secure. But imagine for a moment what it would be like to have the God of the universe as your enemy. The Bible says we really were at enmity with God, and more to the point, he with us (compare James 4:4)!

    >Valiant, is this what you are looking for? From Mailvox: Vox’s Third Law posted by Vox @ 2/13/2007 10:13:00 AMThis message is for bethyada.I come from Vox Popoli, and I wanted to thank you for posting this: “This is precisely the same argument that Joseph Heller put into the mouth of Frau Scheisskopf: “’I don’t believe, ‘ she sobbed, bursting violently into tears. ‘But the God I don’t believe in is a good God, a just God, a merciful God. He’s not the mean and stupid God you make him out to be.'””Sorry that it took me time to respond, but the post got lost and it took me some time to find it.This is the quote that I was referring to. ThanksThough, I am not sure, is this a character in a book written by Heller, or an actual RL quote?Thanks again for the reply. i will reply in kind, if ever the need arises :)
