Can a Man Sue God?

I know you probably read a couple a days ago about Senator Ernie Chambers and this business of suing God. The “esteemed Senator” accused God of sending natural disasters, inciting fear among the world’s population and of terrorizing millions.

LINCOLN, Neb. – 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 terrorist 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.”

Poof! ‘God’ Answers Suit, Asserts Lack of Jurisdiction

From ABA Journal

A response to a legislator’s lawsuit from “God” asserts the court lacks jurisdiction to hear a Nebraska legislator’s lawsuit against him.

John Friend, clerk of the Douglas County District Court in Omaha, told the Associated Press the response was one of two filed on God’s behalf. State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha sued God earlier this week to make the point that anyone can file a frivolous lawsuit.

“This one miraculously appeared on the counter,” Friend said. “It just all of a sudden was here—poof!”

The suit also argues that God is immune from earthly laws, he has not been served with the suit, and he should not be blamed for human suffering.

“I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is my greatest gift to you,” it read.

No contact information was on the filing, although it lists St. Michael the Archangel as a witness. Several local lawyers denied that they wrote the response, but they told Omaha’s Action 3 News they are available if God needs them.

“[God] hasn’t called me yet!” said lawyer James Martin Davis.

A second response from “God” lists a phone number for a Corpus Christi law office.

Oh, well. One can’t deny we have an exciting governmental body. What next, I ask?

ODALE, I don’t know why people reject what is best for them. Why do people reject Jesus–why do so many become angry about Him? Even if one chooses not to serve Him, history reveals Him to be a person who went about doing good. Yet today, a big chunk of our society rail against His teachings of holiness and godliness.

ROCHELLE, I heard earlier that Brother Haney’s message was wonderful. I also heard today that resolution # 4 passed by 81 votes. We may have some changes in store, but God is able to help us through these times of adjustment.

Perhaps you have heard that the division of the Western District passed also. I believe the new district will be called Southern California district.
It’s the end of an era–we will see profound change here in the west. But, often change is good. We must keep rolling, serving God, being sensitive to Him, and winning the lost.

Amen and Amen. It’s not our imagination and my heart grieves for the ones who are the most vocal/reprobate. The author of confusion is very busy, knowing his time is short!It seems that in the past 10 years, there have been some radical changes, and none of them good. If you’ve seen the link I left in your SFran post, you know that my heart is right on track with yours, Shirley.
When I started my blog, I wasn’t intending to “lean” in any direction as far as theme. I’m not a confrontational person, believe it or not;-), but it would be wrong to allow opportunities to stand up for Jesus go by.
Why do people look for answers then reject the simplest, kindest route? I’ve heard some strange answers.

You know, Odale, it seems to me that in very recent years, there has been a real attack on God and The Church by atheists. I don’t know if it is my imagination, but I don’t recall in year’s past, atheists being so vocal and challenging. I am truly worried about our country. We need to call on God for help.

I am appalled that a senator, a self-proclaimed agnostic, is profaning God’s name to elevate himself. It’s bad enough what others impose but a person in his position should have more “political correctness”. The atheists, etc. have had a field day with this.
It isn’t about lawsuits or the young lady he claims concern for, as someone indicated in my blog. This is about Ernie Chambers.
God can assuredly take care of himself but we are supposed to take care of His sheep.
Remember how upset the jihadists were over a cartoon of Muhammad? And how they call us “devils”? “They” claim we lack loyalty…

Hey, everybody. Glad we were all able to get a laugh out of this.

Rochelle, no unfortunately, I will not be going to GC. Wish I could. Will you be there? We need somebody to report for us.

I have to agree with the Senator that frivolous lawsuits are ridiculous! I also agree with the response from God! It’s not His fault!!
