Watching the 700 club
On this Christian program there was a baby who somehow nearly drowned. Apparently these pious Xtians weren't looking out for their baby who was near a lake.
Into the water the kid goes and after much difficulty the baby is rescued out of the water with what at the time appeared to be no heartbeat. The EMT'S do CPR and they find a heartbeat. They take the baby to the hospital and eventually after much worry and prayer the baby not only survives but has no apparent ill effects of his ordeal. God is great right?
Ok what about the tens of thousands of children who underwent similar ordeals and didn't make it? Didn't god love that kid too? Were their parents no pious enough? Were the members of the wrong religion?
I've know fo several people including children who were prayed for and over but they died anyway.
The kid in my story lucked out. I'm glad but what made him special to god to the point to where he lived and other children and deserving adults etc died?
