  • Ingmar54 for verse 27
    So, no matter what life we have had, abuse and torture or a silver spoon and a lifetime of love, we are all expected to come to the same conclusion in just one lifetime. Hardly seems just. I believe God is just. People have more compassion for dogs. Look at dogs who have been abused as apposed to those who haven 't. How can we expect people to be any different. Their outlook on life and their beliefs would surely be affected. It would take more than one lifetime to understand anything as complex as life.
