This is a question everyone should ask. The answer you believe true will determine your life view. You don’t have to have a relationship with God to answer with “Yes”. Of course if you do have a relationship with God you will be able to answer with an emphatic “Yes”.
No, allows some modern philosophies, which historically are really recycled, to influence your life choice. Take for example the famous story of Jonah. He finds himself in the belly of a great fish. This fish vomits him onto the beach God intended for him to reach. This story is too fantastic to be credible without a controlling God. If you don’t believe in God’s control this story can never rise above myth.
If man is nothing more than a specie among the many of nature you have not elevated all animals to equality with man but debased man into a mere animal. What is ironic is that the very thought processes that entertains this equality proves superiority.
Without a controlling God morality is capricious and subjective. It can be nothing else. If we are mere animals then it is also frivolous. No lizard contemplated the fate of any bug it eats or of other lizards why should men. Jeffery Dalmer was one of the few to be brave enough to truly allow this belief system to not be compromised. He lived it out to its logical conclusion. There are no rights because these are the product of natural law which presupposes an intelligent creator.
Is your life merely a pinball let loose within the machine of random choices? Have you observed how little control you have over outcomes even when you attempt to control every detail? Can the collective consciousness of all humanity achieve a better result?
If God is in control Dorean is not a bust. Your participation is more than your free choice. Prison and bank fraud are not final answers. Think on this, with either life view your complaint is disingenuous.
