This is the reason



39. And so they were not able to believe, because Isaiah also said,

40. *God has blinded their eyes and closed their minds, so that their eyes would not see, and their minds would not understand, and they would not turn to me, says God, for me to heal them.*

But to us believers

11. Jesus answered, *The knowledge about the secrets of the Kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.

Why would God choose to randomly blind some people’s eyes? How would that help to achieve His goal of being worshipped by the whole world?

Not everyone on earth is the true children of God Almighty.

Just as you have the sheep's and the goat's. The believers and unbelievers.

He knows the end from the beginning..


Ask the merciful Lord to search you and reveal your true identity. Please don't be equally yoked with unbelievers

So why has god still not been able to regrow the amputated limbs of Christians who believe in it?

If you are here to debate we are sorry, this issue is non debatable.



If you are blind, cry out to see the unseen

He is one of those God himself have blinded and closed their eyes and mind.. Which sounds good right?

Please sincerely pray for him for mercy, he might had been deceived

Interesting questions on here!

Indeed, free thinking takes one away from the platitudes of religion and triggers pertinent questions..

What do you mean free thinking?? In the beginning was the original thought and only he could think before it was transferred to the first formed man and his wife's mind got twisted and gave birth to what you called free thinking. Please fear the Lord God Almighty and the creator. And be humble.




There is nothing like religion. It's all about relationship.
Re: To Those Who Couldn't Believe In The Person Of Christ Jesus by chemystery: 8:18pm On Jan 03
So if god is responsible for our blinded eyes and closed minds why should anyone be bothered? Doesn't this imply that your god takes pleasure in roasting people in hell? If not, why didn't he channel such energy used in blinding people's eyes and closing their mind into opening their eyes and minds so that everyone makes heaven?

So by agreeing with the questions I saw being asked here, it means I don't fear the Lord and ain't humble


Free thinking in the sense that, forget all you were brought up to think and just give deep thoughts to everything religion from a neutral point of view

Before your hearts are hardened, the creator of the hearts and souls knows it's contents.

Many have heard the word of God and have blasphemed immensely.

Their wickedness, unbelieve and blasphemy have reached the throne of grace.

Then, after reaching this line, the almighty God himself Harden their hearts.

At this point,

NO ONE CAN TURN THEM AROUND.

Not even the greatest preacher that has ever lived.

God's are not physical beings.. That you can see.. They are personification of laws and principles, esu is just God of the cross roads... It means the decision you take or the ones you forgo...

The devil. The Prince of this world. That's who blinds people's eyes, not God. Read 2Cor 4:4

21. At that time Jesus was filled with joy by the Holy Spirit and said, *Father, Lord of heaven and earth! I thank you because you have shown to the unlearned what you have hidden from the wise and learned. Yes, Father, this was how you were pleased to have it happen.

22. *My Father has given me all things. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.*

23. Then Jesus turned to the disciples and said to them privately, *How fortunate you are to see the things you see!

24. I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see, but they could not, and to hear what you hear, but they did not.*

If I had a prof who chose to reveal some things to me-a first year undergraduate- based on my closeness to him.

And then he says " some final year students and even lecturers wish to know these things but they don't"

Would it make any sense for you to interpret his statement as meaning that he is the reason for their ignorance?

God isn't the source of any man's problems. The devil is, but God gives solutions to any who would seek it of Him.

If you mean something else by the scriptures you quoted, please state clearly.

So the so called god made so called sheep and goats then starts blaming the goats for being goats. Does this god have sense?

Not everyone is a "Good" child of God Almighty.
God is Worshipped for His Majesty.
He loved us by creating us solely for His Pleasures.
Not goat and sheep, but the Case of Esau and Jacob comes to Mind. He made them both to Recognise Him. But had special Assignment for Jacob which does not prevent Esau from loving and worshipping Him
"In Him was Life. And The Life was The Light in all humankind".
Everyone has The Light. So noone is blindfolded to worship, love and live in Him.

39. Jesus said, *I came to this world to judge, so that the blind should see and those who see should become blind.*

40. Some Pharisees who were there with him heard him say this and asked him, *Surely you don't mean that we are blind, too?*

41. Jesus answered, *If you were blind, then you would not be guilty; but since you claim that you can see, this means that you are still guilty.*

17. For the scripture says to the king of Egypt, *I made you king in order to use you to show my power and to spread my fame over the whole world.*

18. So then, God has mercy on anyone he wishes, and he makes stubborn anyone he wishes.

19. But one of you will say to me, *If this is so, how can God find fault with anyone? Who can resist God's will?*

20. But who are you, my friend, to talk back to God? A clay pot does not ask the man who made it, *Why did you make me like this?*

21. After all, the man who makes the pots has the right to use the clay as he wishes, and to make two pots from the same lump of clay, one for special occasions and the other for ordinary use.


22. And the same is true of what God has done. He wanted to show his anger and to make his power known. But he was very patient in enduring those who were the objects of his anger, who were doomed to destruction.

23. And he also wanted to reveal his abundant glory, which was poured out on us who are the objects of his mercy, those of us whom he has prepared to receive his glory.

If it is supposed to be a "being" then yes but o course you are going to say it is "spiritual" which actually means it is imaginary. So we are back to square one.

How far? When are we expecting this year's failed end of the world prophecy from you?
