If 25 people die in a plane crash, but there's one survivor who says "thank God".
Does that imply God didn't care about the dead?
It's a good thread, for once, by apathist.
He actually comes up with good ones a lot in my opinion. Think about this, God who is
Almighty, All knowing, Who is every where, Eternal in time and space would see every
atom, proton, and so on down the to smallest particle, and the whole expanse of the whole
universe at once. He would know each detail in perfect knowledge not being bound by
time, and the whole, and how it all works together at the same time.
This is the one that formed us in our mother's womb, who has plans for us that the
scriptures say is so wonderful it has not even entered into the mind of man what is
about to come. Death and time for Him would be nothing, evil in all of its power is also
nothing but a bump in the road. The struggle isn't by power, it isn't by strength or
wisdom, it is by love and evil in us.
God gave us the ability to choose, for a purpose, what that purpose is remains to be
seen, but we know it isn't because this life is all there is. We are told that this life and all
in it are temporary, that if we gain the whole world and lose our souls what does it matter?
The real questions in this life isn't who lives and dies, it is what one does with Jesus, and
how we treat one another. Do we live a life of love, or self centeredness?
