If you are like me, you probably asked yourself this question at one point. It never made sense to me why some people would be born with problems and others wouldn't. I mean if God created us and was forming in our mother’s womb's, wouldn't we be perfect? It is hard to understand why a perfect God, would create something that wasn't perfect in every way.

Back in the early 1980's, my church founded Hidden Treasure Christian School to specifically meet the needs of handicapped children, including our pastor's daughter. I was not a member of the church at the time, but joined in 1998. The school is bigger and better than ever today. One of their mottoes is "God has given you everything you need to accomplish His will for your life."
yardstick: @ew, re: US economy - it wont, but the pandemic is irrelevant. It has more to do with demographics. We have about 5 years of inflation before things calm down.

yardstick: @ew, re: annexing ukraine - it was never about annexing them when they proved intractable. Now it is only about razing the entire country to the ground and making it unliveable - no infrastructure. Then on to Warsaw, Bucharest, and Lithuania...

EnochWalked: @ys Great analysis, thank you. 5 years of inflation is plausible, but I'm curious about what demographic issues you think might lower GDP growth? Yes, sadly Russia knows it can't afford to fight against an insurgency there, so they have to depopulate it.

EnochWalked: ... "Abbas ... continues to spread the venal lie that Israel is threatening the mosques at the site. So now is the time to reassert absolute Israeli administration of the site, and to expand Jewish visiting privileges and even basic prayer rights"

EnochWalked: "America’s Dead Sea, as it’s also known" "If the salt content rises much further, to around 17%, it will be too much for the algae in the water, threatening the flies & ... shrimp that feed on it." "Demand for water...could outstrip supply as soon as 2040"

EnochWalked: I'm seeing the phrase "medication abortion" a lot recently, after the recent SCOTUS ruling, & I'm wondering if this isn't a closer prophetic match to "pharmakeia" than vaccines (which are supposed to make people healthy) or drugs (to make people 'happy').
