    With all due respect, my young lady, but where was liberals or liberal bashing taking place in this thread?

    Read some of the articles about Ba'al worship. I've provided links. I can't be bothered watching avatars you tubes on the topic.

    So you have no basis on which to comment about the OP then? But for that matter, neither do I.

People these days are looking for reasons to specifically not believe in God but as I've heard it said if you don't believe in something you'll believe in anything.

    If you don't believe in a deity then you'll put all your faith in science, you'll raise up the environment to the level of the Almighty, or maybe you'll put all your efforts in courting the love, likes of others via social media. People want to play god by demeaning people of God, by changing the creation of God, or by fitting God into their life instead of the other way around. (I'm pretty sure I could come up with examples from the left and the right so to discuss the larger point I refrained)

    Hosea, the prophets, historical context of the bible. It's all as relevant today as it was then.

    I guess if you're going to work on your response for 10 years, it needs to be a good one.

    Excellent response
