Nebraska State Senator Sues God
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) ? The defendant in a state senator’s lawsuit is accused of causing untold death and horror and threatening to cause more still. He can be sued in Douglas County, the legislator claims, because He’s everywhere.
State Sen. Ernie Chambers sued God last week. Angered by another lawsuit he considers frivolous, Chambers says he’s trying to make the point that anybody can file a lawsuit against anybody.
Chambers says in his lawsuit that God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents, inspired fear and caused “widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants.”
The Omaha senator, who skips morning prayers during the legislative session and often criticizes Christians, also says God has caused “fearsome floods … horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes.”
He’s seeking a permanent injunction against the Almighty.
The funny thing is that if you look at scripture, we are the ones responsible for all the destruction, death and suffering. At best, you could blame God for creating us the way we are – ie evil. But even then, God (as Jesus) got the death penalty for our crimes and all our blessings come from Him too.
Now since most of State Sen. Ernie Chambers claims against God (or the evidence) likely comes from before our country was even founded, we have to respect the sovereignty of the the Almighty and the Covenants He made (since they were the only laws that applied)
If you don’t believe He is Just and Holy, then how can you even hold Him accountable? You don’t get to decide what parts you believe and which to dismiss. That’s like saying, “I know the robber was a man and the suspect is a man therefore he’s guilty” – never mind the fact that the suspect was two states away at the time of the crime.
