I was looking for Green Lantern stuff online-which is the only way we can get even old out of date comics in my country- and found a file "gl_001.wmv" which turned out to be THE SINESTRO WAR story arc SET TO MUSIC. I had never seen anything like this before! (Not counting this ripoff THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE) BBC children's story reading, which the [*Bleep!*]ards started selling on the streets when the movie came out AS the movie.)
The music fit seamlessly into the first three minutes of the story. The place where the Guardians dedicated ION was like DC wrote it.
I am a devout Christian, but I don't deal in delusion like most of our people. To those who do not know much about God, it would certainly appear as if "God falls asleep on the job."
I believe that this is what the Prophet King David saw, and interpreted as a legitimate Divine Technique to get rid of Uriah the Hittite. "If God does it, why can't I?"
His colleague Nathan diplomatically showed him that his almost clever, treacherous scheme violated basic Commandments of God. (This wasn't the first or second time.)
A shallow mind reading The Bible sees that God performs miracles on the behalf of people they see as no better than themselves, protecting a bunch of "mere Jews," no better than their own people.
It does not occur to many that when they demand to know why God- "IF HE EXISTS!" -does not spring into action to rescue them, or others whom they think worthy to be rescued, that God has no reason to value one side over another.
For instance, JFK was murdered in a cowardly manner which was foreseen by the great Kenneth Hagin in a vision. Kenneth Hagin explained that he did nothing to prevent his assassination because he was afraid what the FBI would have done to him.
This concern was indeed cowardly, but also legitimate. Look at what happened to David Koresh and his Branch Davidian church, because he prophesied negatively. (I heard the soundtrack of WACO: The Big Lie. There were several lies told in the accusations against him.)
John Fitzgerald Kennedy maintained the system of oppression that prevented warning from reaching his ear. He died as aresult of his own injustice.
I am sure that all of the people who died in the 9/11 would have laughed at the thought of sponsoring people to be holy men praying for their establishments and their lives. Any of them with relatives praying for their protection would have been laughing them off as crackpots. I have seen this before.
If one believes that a Supreme Being exists, one must use commonsense and take that belief to its logical conclusion, and do nothing else in one's life not connected to attaining rapport with this entity ASAP.

The people in The Bible who achieved miracle-support by
God were not wishy-washy Believers- "Maybe God exists-
maybe He can help me..?" but people who were very serious
about their Faith. They went into wildernesses for God. Went
to jail for God. They put their lives on the line for God.
Today, people work their fingers to the bone for money,
fame, sex, friends, material security- but God is treated as
some sort of "Escape" button Whose Existence is forgotten
until one thinks one needs Him.
God does not fall asleep on the job at all.
Man, however has this amazing ability to jump off cliffs God never told him to jump off, and when we are marmaladed across the ground, arrogantly demand,
"Where were You, God?"
as if HE were the servant, and WE His masters.
The most important fact about Life is that it can END.
There is a way, according to The Gospel, for a man to lose his life, then recover it. To return other people's lives to them, if they lose them, or to get one's own life back, if one has lost it. Somehow this concept immediately ceased to be the Central Truth of Christian religion, once Jesus was no longer in plain sight. Just because his so-called Disciples were clueless, that does not mean that we have to be, and let others tell us how we should live our lives, and how much part we should let God have in them.
We have the option of knowing as much of God as God can be made to know of us. Omniscience is not an attribute of The Bible God- He only knows what He wants to find out. Several verses of Scripture plainly show this. If one is Enlightened to understand Divine Concepts, God has to take notice of us, and favour us over those who couldn't be bothered. This Enlightenment takes a lot of deliberate effort to achieve. For instance, one has to do considerable good without taking credit for it. Defend others without asking anything in return. Take verbal and physical insults without retaliation. Serve those whom we see as inferior to us as if they were our equals or superiors.
Doing the same things that God does enables us to know Him. Knowing God makes God in turn to come to know us.
