Your welcome Mike:-) I`ve been waiting for someone to get back to this side of the forum.
Although God may have created different marketing strategies to get our attention,His goal was, is, and will always be for the "soul" purpose of giving back to "the community". He did not generate such chaos in "the Beginning", His PR Reps got greedy and the first "breech of contract" was born, then all hell broke loose,and the "trickle down" effect came into play.
He brought in a new PR team and got rid of everyone in the company and started from scratch. Hey man, He`s not giving up on this business that easy.
His company continues to grow, though many have broke away and started their own companies which in turn has caused the "cutthroat competition" that Craig mentioned.
God even graciously sent in a Teacher to help those who didn`t really understand the business, but there are always some who are just too arrogant to take advice from others,
No MATTER what the consequence may be. So they crucified the Teacher believing they new more than He. Though many discovered that God`s company is the place to work, there are still many companies out there fighting for their own notoriety.
God`s business is Love and Everlasting Life.
Those that left the business thinking they could do it on their own are the one`s generating the chaos. Not God.
Yes, God could stop it,but He is not a dictator, we have the FreeWill to make our own choice, and to conduct our business te way we see fit.
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10b, NKJV.
