Power and Corruption

Just a random thought for the day

We have all heard the saying, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely"

Do you agree with it?

What does that say about God who is supposedly as absolutely powerful as you can get?

Does being absolutely powerless make you pure? Some would say yes like in the instance of a baby

Damn, Brian, it's too early for me to be thinking about this shit.

I don't think God is absolutly powerful, mainly because of free will but also because if you do not believe in Him it makes him Powerless.

Yes, it does absolutely corrupt. God is a figment of peoples imagination, just like Zeus or Apollo, so nothing exists to corrupt. ;o)

Guess it depends on how you view god... he is corrupt if you ask me.

I'm with Rocket and the 108 where God is concerned, but I do not think babies are powerless..I know mine's not!

well until today I hadn't heard that saying (I know - where the hell have I been - haha) but I must agree with lil sis and say that babies are far from powerless - but I guess that depends on how you're defining power
