@RyanFrame: I never realized there were different answers to this question, I always assumed they were humans...I mean if they weren't humans, then that seems to change something on a very fundamental level in my mind....

comment what differentiates virtuous faith from the faith of extremists
@user4813: after many many debates and questions like yours I came to the conclusion that Jesus is of God, not Christianity as a religion of mans many, many, many many, different interpretations of God from the very tight and constricted awareness that we have of God. However, Christianity is, so far, the best we have in this world, I have seen the most light shine through it than anything else in this world.

comment What Doctrine Supports The Christian Gun Culture?
@caseyr547: It always amazes me how we can be OK with picking out certain scriptures without context, metaphor and time, etc and then others we change the rules...but that is a completely different question as to why we are like that...

I also remember a scripture that mentions our weapons should NOT be of the carnal world, but of the spirit....

comment What Doctrine Supports The Christian Gun Culture?
very interesting. Now I am curious about "Christians who are ultra-patriotic." How are those two connected ? What does the US have anything to do with the alter of Christ or Christianity at all?? If anything this country supports being free of believing in a God and the pursuit of happiness in this life, not the next.

@AffableGeek: maybe but I am looking how religion shapes this belief from the Christian point of view; supported by Christian beliefs, culture and the Bible.

comment Why is the curse of original sin not specific to humans?
Thanks Greg, that does shed some light on my not understand how this works. It wasn't meant to be loaded, it was very sincere in trying to understand what seems like a mystery to me.

comment Is it a valid Christian concept to attribute subjectively attactive physical characteristics, as blessings from God?
@davidstratton: reading your answer again, it seems to me that God may have allowed the person to be on the lower spectrum but didn't cause it?

comment Why pray if God is omniscient?
@2tim424: if only this style of prayer is valid, I am afraid 75% of people prayers are not valid...objectively looking at this, but perhaps that is the only kind of prayer and we do not really understnd how God works..

So what we look like physically is a mixture, add in God's purpose + our corrupted bodies in sin? Mix it all together and that is how each person gets their appearance? (For the record, that actually sounds like a probable answer to me...)

very good point about "it's not about having the blessing as much as it is about using the blessing". However, "being beautiful is no more or less a blessing than not being beautiful." is hard to accept, because it is much much harder to use the opposite for good and sometimes can easily lead to more darkness via self esteem and interactions with others...so the beautiful person has much more to work with...

so it is more like the mixtures result of God's purpose + our corrupted bodies? Mix it all together and then that is what we may get?

@Mawia: that is a good point, isn't the deceiver the ruler of the physical world? the carnal nature is not of Gods?

@ZeeTee: I understand that view but I hate to see those extremes where it completely brakes down quality of life and the person just has to hold on until that day...I guess that circles back to the suffering questions.
