i am of the believe that God set the universe into motion, but interferes very infrequently. it's like pressing play in a cassette player- it runs until the end, but you can't interfere with the playing. all you can do is press stop, ot let the tape run to the end.

David: This view, often referred to as God, the cosmic watchmaker, has nothing in common with the Biblical view of a God Who is passionately involved with His universe. While that raises all sorts of problems for us, I prefer being troubled by God's presence in the midst of tragedy over being troubled by His absence.

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving your comments.
