Would you do things differently from how God does it?

In the movie Bruce almighty, Bruce was given the powers of God and started to do things his way. He eventually found that it was very difficult to handle all the people in the world. What would you do differently from God if you were in Bruce's shoes?

I am not in the capacity to challenge what God has given me. My God given brain is only limited to what I am capable of doing and to challenge God is only inviting curse upon me.

I am very much in the same disposition as you do. Yes, no one among us can question God's doings in any way at all. Our limits is way too little as to know what others need. In fact, by ourselves alone, we often make mistakes in making important decisions in life. I even make mistakes as to what my body truly needs in order to achieve good and perfect health.

Haha, this interests me to know what people's responses are, but for myself, clearly I'm not cut out to be God, or any gods for that matter. I'd interfere too much ;P So I'll leave the ruling of the Universe to Him :)

I think that thing that a lot of people don't think about is the fact that you just can't make everyone happy at the same time. If I had the power, I would try to do the best that I possibly can, but the simple fact is that you can't make everyone's dreams come true without spoiling the dreams of others. Most people would do selfish things like get lottery numbers or make their country better, and would not bother about what was happening to people in other countries, so I think that the way things are is the best that it could be.

It's rather mind blogging and intriguing to play the role of God. I simply admire the God I know with awe from my limited human perception. I'd certainly be different in all aspects if I am to fill that role. Only God knows if its for better or for worse.

I like movies that look at these things because they make you think. There are several that are my favorite. I have not seen this one but like humour so might watch this movie sometime. To answer the question, I will be very different than God because I do not have the patience or dissipation of God and certainly not the understanding. I will never be as wonderful or great as God yet so very honoured here to have this kind of power in this discussion. Basically I want introduce myself - Hi, I’m Bluedoll and I’m taking the place of God I do love you and want you to be happy and do well but we need to talk. Talk to me anytime you like. Yes, I see we have a mess but don’t loose hope it is fixable No, I’m not doing it – you are!

I wouldn't want to be God, not even for 1 hour. This would be a huge responsibility and I couldn't cope with it. I am too little to judge God, so I don't want to give Him any tips on how to rule the world, although I would like to see some things changing. But as I said, these things would overwhelm any human being, so I prefer to be a happy human.

Oh, no. I can never play God in any way at all. I can never tell as to when a person is thinking good or bad. Nor can I tell what a person is truly in need of in times of dire needs. I can never read people's minds and hearts either. So in truth and in fact, I can never question God's authority, nor power nor decisions. And, yes, I have seen that movie years ago.

This is fiction and its hard to say. I don`t believe in this. But for sure is that there will not be justice for all people in the world. I think every single person must take care about for self and not one person take care of all. Anyway I like this movie especialy because of Jim Carrey, he was funny as always. The concept of this movie was good too. But still its fiction.
