Introduction

"God gives life and only God can take it away" Do you agree? Give reasons for your answer showing that you have considered more than one point of view. The statement ` God gives life and only God can take it away' Is true because God gave each of us on earth a right to live and he gave us this right for a reason. He created us in his own image and no one, other than God has a right to change this image. However, there are people in the world today who continually try to be like God and change the way we live.

We have so many dictators in our world today that it feels as if there are lots of Gods in our world, but there is only one. These dictators try to be like him by thinking they are more powerful and superior to others. Hitler was an example to someone who played God. He thought the German's were a superior race and that he was their leader or their God. He decided whom he wanted dead and this resulted in millions of Jews being executed. He got what he wanted just as God should. Another more recent example of someone who `plays God' is Osama Bin Laden. The thing is, with him, people treat him as if he is one.

Conclusion

Leaders involved in the war should try to negotiate with each other and try meet with each other's needs because it will save casualties and also it is the war God wants us to live, in peace and love for each other. Even our most hated enemies. also firmly believe that these dictators are nothing like God. When hard times arise, all these so called Gods can or could do is to fight their way out of it with weapons and arms. I believe our God is a peaceful one, who decides when it is the right time for us to die, but he is a forgiving God and treats us all equally, and we, as Christians believe that: "We are made in the image of God and therefore human life is God's gift to us and is uniquely precious. We are not the owners of life, but its minders." ...read more.
