I'm watching a drunk guy getting booked on a TV show. It's like COPS but it's called "Jail" or something like that. This poor guy was fighting and screaming at the Police so hard, they finally had to restrain him in a chair made with feet and hand restraints. The Cops asked what his problem was, his answer was that his daughter was in a wheel chair and that wasn't fair. Then at the top of his lungs he said "I curse you God for making my little girl be in a wheel chair". (or something close to that).
You know what? I respect that guy. And I respect his choice to curse God. It's his daughter and his circumstance and so he has the right to deal with it however he decides. It's between him and God.
I also have very close friends who have a daughter who will be in a wheel chair her whole life. She is a very sweet little 12 yr old girl with Spina-bifada. Her parents have dealt with it very well, but no where near as good as Elizabeth does. And again I respect Elizabeth and her parents decision to make sense out of it all. But in this case they haven't cursed God, and at least to the outside world have no complaints. Who knows, maybe one day Elizabeth and or her parents might get mad at God about this and curse Him? But again that is between them and God.
Here's why I bring this up? Why do people feel like they have the right to be mad at God for other peoples afflictions? Especially if the people who are going through it have made peace with their situation and God. When "Katrina" hit Louisiana some cursed God and some were thankful. When the Tsunami hit the coast of Indonesia same thing, some were mad and some were grateful. There are people starving to death right now, who are giving thanks to God.
So if you want to be mad at God because some or even many people are hurting about their circumstances, then you should be thankful to God as well when people are grateful during their trying circumstances.
I know most of you don't believe in God, but if there is God, can't you see how silly you'd look trying to justify yourself before Him. By complaining how mean and sadistic he is when people who starved to death or spent their life in a wheel chair never once thought God was cruel?
The Bible teaches us that we all must work out our own salvation. It's your life, and if you want to curse God go ahead. I will respect that. But cursing God because we live in a fallen and sinful world is a cop out.
