I saw this news article and was just kind of shocked.. after reading it I just started chuckling...... People try to put God in a box and a formula... He's bigger than all this... A lawsuit against God? LOL... incredible.. I found this actually to be quite humorous.... Need to Pray for Mr Chambers and ask God to reveal Himself to Mr Chambers in a way that it will change his life forever...

Suit against God thrown out over lack of address

By NATE JENKINS 7 hours ago
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) A judge has thrown out a Nebraska legislator's lawsuit against God, saying the Almighty wasn't properly served due to his unlisted home address. State Sen. Ernie Chambers filed the lawsuit last year seeking a permanent injunction against God.
He said God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents in Omaha, inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."
Chambers has said he filed the lawsuit to make the point that everyone should have access to the courts regardless of whether they are rich or poor.
On Tuesday, however, Douglas County District Court Judge Marlon Polk ruled that under state law a plaintiff must have access to the defendant for a lawsuit to move forward.
"Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice," Polk wrote.
Chambers, who graduated from law school but never took the bar exam, thinks he's found a hole in the judge's ruling.
"The court itself acknowledges the existence of God," Chambers said Wednesday. "A consequence of that acknowledgment is a recognition of God's omniscience."
Therefore, Chambers said, "Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit."
Chambers has 30 days to decide whether to appeal. He said he hasn't decided yet.
Chambers, who has served a record 38 years in the Nebraska Legislature, is not returning next year because of term limits. He skips morning prayers during the legislative session and often criticizes Christians.

It's sad.
'Sort of ironic in that Sen. Ernie Chambers will one day, himself be served .
Prayer for him would be a good thing.

38 years and now he has to leave because of term limits??? :dunno:

I've heard a similiar story (or perhaps the same.) In that story, two lawyers submitted defenses on behalf of God. I think it was in Texas. Does anyone know?

Not so, says "God." His response argues that the defendant is immune from some earthly laws and the court lacks jurisdiction.

It adds that blaming God for human oppression and suffering misses an important point.
"I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is my greatest gift to you," according to the response.
