    This is truly amazing! Jimmy has come up with a question that for 2,000 years no Christian theologian has discovered.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    Now the pressing question then becomes why did He wait to only tell Moses about this, and no one else before this?

    . . . the Gospel of Christ, for it is [the] power of God to salvation to every [one] believing, . . . -- Romans 1:16.

    . . . that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: . . . -- 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4.

    Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: . . . -- 1 John 5:1.

    Dontchaknow that neutron stars can be used for the ultimate cosmic game of billiards? Just hope the resulting gamma ray burst isn't too close. Don't worry! He's very responsible!

    Seriously, God didn't rest because He was tired. And He isn't actually playing cosmic billiards with neutron stars.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Let's see if I can come up with more stupid answers to this stupid question.

    ...

    Are there any other cosmic games that God would not actually play? Planet marbles? Asteroids with real asteroids? Throw the space object into a black hole? Throw the dumb fundy atheist into a black hole(that would be silly, leaving him on Venus might be an option if he wouldn't immediately die...)? Play near miss asteroid hitting the Earth(don't see that He'd cause mass panic like that)?
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Seriously? If god didn't rest because he was tired from all the work he had undertaken, ya know, like it says in the bible, then why did he rest? Is he still resting do you think, or has he been out there creating other universes all this time-less-ness.

    It simply means He ceased creating stuff. It was finished. Duh.

    Actually it already says he "ended" his work, ya know, ceased creating stuff, to then say that he "rested" after ending that work would be superfluous if "rested" meant the same thing as "ended." I can understand your disbelief that a god would need to rest, but unfortunately that is what the bible says.
