Adult behavior is taking on the challenges of life and working through them through to completion ... Adults are constantly working through many challenges at one time

Immature behavior is only doing what is required.

 

 

To say that this earth is anything except how God planned it to be is to say that God is not in control, that God is not God.

To say that "Satan" was once an angel, but then "he" somehow went bad, is to deny the power of God. That is saying that something happened that was outside of the control of God. If you say that anything is outside of God's control and plan, then you cannot say that God is the almighty, ruler of heaven and earth, and that he is in control. That would be illogical. Some might say that it is a matter of faith. There is a website that says "Faith means believing the unbelievable" www.awesomecg.blogspot.com It's no wonder that modern day Christianity is all messed up. True faith is based upon a proven track record. i.e. because someone has acted consistantly in a responsible truthful matter for a number years through intense trials, we can believe (have faith in) that he can be trusted. True faith is like a diving board. Part of it is based on  what is known to be trustworth and part part of it extends into the future.  It is anchored in the things that are true. 

 

By contrast, unsound faith has no basis of reality. It is a mental construct saying, "I will have faith that has no proven track record." This is having faith in the idea of faith.
