How many times have we heard people complaining about some tragedy in life and they question aloud, to what ever higher spiritual authority they believe in, why this had to occur in the first place and then turn around the next time something happens and state it must have been “the will” of that higher authority and we shouldn’t question it.
Isn’t that convenient?
Next week is the fifth anniversary of the Concorde crashing on take-off from Paris. 113 were killed including 96 Germans. I don’t have anything against Germans personally but I did react when a German Bishop at a memorial service for his 96 countrymen on-board asked, “God, where were you in Paris?”
If God didn’t show up for 6 million Jews, Poles, Russians, gypsies, children, elderly, sick, etc. what makes you think he is going to put in an appearance for 96 tourists?
