King Benjamin makes the case that God is intimately involved in our lives, even lending us breath, and supporting us from one moment to another.
21 I say unto you that if ye should aserve him who has created you from the beginning, and is bpreserving you from day to day, by lending you cbreath, that ye may live and move and do according to your own dwill, and even supporting you from one moment to another— I say, if ye should serve him with all your ewhole souls yet ye would be funprofitable servants.
In a previous post, I stated that I don’t think God is involved in every detail of our lives. God wants us to grow up, and doesn’t get involved in every single aspect of our lives. He didn’t help Austin Collie make a catch on 4th and 18 to win the game. Hence we seem to have some sort of conundrum.
I made the point on another blog a while back that sometimes God’s answers to prayers are “no”. I received the following response.
I don’t buy the “God answers prayers but sometimes the answer is no” doctrine.
When little children are kidnapped and being tortured and the only thing they have left is a prayer to God to be saved, and they are found dead weeks later. I guess God’s answer was no.
God whispers into the ears (thru the HG) of those that have the gift and tells them to buckle their seatbelt preceding a crash, but ignores all the starving children in Africa.
God cures cancer and all manner of sicknesses, but has NEVER healed an amputee. I guess amputees are not worthy…none of them.
If there is a God, he/she certainly doesn’t meddle with the affairs of this earth. If he/she actually does exist, and does meddle, then to hell with em. Their discrimination makes me sick to my stomach.
