    Can a people or nation be cursed by God?

    You've probably heard Pat Robertson's latest comments.[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5TE99sAbwM"]YouTube- Pat Robertson Calls Quake 'blessing in Disguise'[/ame]

    What do you think? Are there some people who, as a group tend to be cursed by God?

    No. People and/or nations curse themselves by poor decisions and behaviors which are destructive. It really has nothing to do with curses, and everything to do with how people think, act, and treat themselves and those around them.

    Curses on nations went out with the Old Testament last time I looked.

    All liberals are cursed by god? This is news to me.


    In response to the poll, Pat Robertson is a very confused man who has bought into this indoctrination of religion.

    He's just old and confused.

    You can not allow yourself to acknowledge this fact, because you are one of those hypocritical liberals who deny reality.

    That's not true. Jesus cursed Jerusalem for example. He stood looking at the temple and said, "See you not all these things. I tell you not one stone shall be left upon another." Of course about 40 years later Rome came in and dashed the temple to bits fulfilling Christ's prophetic curse.

    Scripture says, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."

    It says, "The wicked shall be turned into hell and all nations that forget God."

    If you don't believe the Bible, fine. But you don't get to have your cake and eat it too when it comes to religion. Either believe it all or deny it all.

    If God is real and his Word is true then he absolutely does curse and bless nations.

    He also forgives the penitent fully and restores the fallen gladly.

    Re: Can a people or nation be cursed by God?

    I chose the one that closest reflects my beliefs, "God is generally hands off (or something to that effect)."

    However, that response implies a belief in what I assume is the Christian God. That's not true. I believe, like most people, **** happens. Sometimes it's good ****, sometimes it's bad ****, and sometimes it's the unbelievably tragic **** that's happened in Haiti.

    If there is such a god that arbitrarily slaughters the already tortured (and torturous) civilians of Haiti as punishment for not abiding his rule, then f*** him.

    I don't know how well an imaginary being can be at cursing a nation, but I'm going to say probably not that good.
