Most of the people I know who are overly reliant on the existence of a God have had a very devastating event in their life they felt God fixed. A friend of the family was very ill pushing him to thoughts of suicide. He attributed his recovery to a strong faith in the savior Jesus Christ.
I was reminded of him when we saw this blue Toyota Tundra in the parking lot of Farmer’s Market in Roswell,NM. The front license plate tag reads God > I. No worries. God has got it covered. Tell that to the families of the 250 people who died on the commercial plane where the suicidally depressed pilot nose-dived the plane approaching terminal velocity slamming into the Alps. Why didn’t your God step in and stop the actions of pilot Andreas Lubitz? I am sure you would spout nonsense about how we all have free will and God would prefer that to the despicable acts of a nut case pilot who forever screwed up the lives of around 1000 people not to mention the tens of thousands of people who will never fly again.
I am sure the ignorant owner of the truck would say God has a reason for everything no matter how tragic the consequences, but I doubt any of the devastated family members give a damn about the opinion of someone who has never lived through such a horrific event.
To the owner of the pick up truck: You are only one tragic event away from changing your mind. It is easy to believe in a caring and loving God as long as your life is rocking along comfortably. One earthquake or tornado striking your house will likely alter your narrow minded point of view. Let’s not even mention a home invasion where you or people close to you are victimized.
