Should Christians make the world a better place?

    I mistyped the title.

    I meant to type - 'Should God make the world a better place?'

    How would he set about doing that, if the Christian god existed?

    Should he turn water into wine, for example, if people run out?

    I think you need to pour yourself a large glass of water and start praying.

    Another comment which is of no use to anybody.

    Are you claiming god will make the world a better place if people pray to him to rid the world of smallpox?

    I don't think I was claiming that, no.

    But it's interesting that you seem to think the idea of making the world "better" is meaningful. Also that you think the world is a better place without smallpox - maybe it's better for us, but it isn't better for the smallpox! Actually some people think the world would be a better place without any people, as we seem to be making quite a mess of it.

    So maybe you could tell us a bit about where you are coming from?
