Observation: God is in Control
Summary: Though it seems strange to us, God calls the shots from giving the kingdom of Judah and its Temple items to Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon to bestowing grace on Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah in his very own court. This is due to their faithfulness in God in a pagan land, where an example of their faith is shown in rejecting Babylon's foods that were separated to idols or were ritually unclean, and were thus not permissible to eat as they were Jewish. After a period, they proved that their meals of vegetables and water made them more healthier enough than the others, which also saved the life of their supervisor. The four were also given special wisdom pertaining Babylon, and Daniel in particular is given the gift of interpreting dreams.

This whole business made me feel rather uncomfortable - mostly because I see myself smack-bang in the middle of both positions. On the one hand I felt unable to "like" any of those new profile pictures - on the other hand I felt a bit sickened by some of the negative reactions from my conservative friends.Seeking a Biblical Response by deng-li-xin32

I'm just a Christian who arts for Jesus and geeks out on a whole bunch of things (and arts out on that, too).|
Also, if you have any kind of questions about Christianity, feel free to ask without fear of being shot down. I'm not going to say that I have all the answers, but I try my best when it comes to research and stuff.
