So just like your worst case senerios you make up for arguments against happiness being your own choice, Faith must not count for anything compared to a worst case tragic senerio with a bad ending? Good endings don't mean anything, as long as you can think up something worse in the world? Whats the saying good things come in small packages? How could I ever appeciate a little present, when someone else got such a great big one
??? once again greeney you fail to see the point I was getting at. Its not about a little present someone gets and the bigger present someone else gets. Its about somebody who has suffered a tragic loss (is that the little present ? ) who doesn't quite know how to deal with that reality when others have been spared such a tragedy,. They hear others say "well the lord protected you"....."you're guardian angel helped you"(and I'm not saying this isn't true) It does make them question why God did not spare them the sorrow and tragedy of losing a loved one. In the confusion of that ,their faith is tested,and sometimes comes out stronger,because they still choose to believe in a loving God despite the fact that they had to suffer a tragedy that seamingly God spared others of.
Greeney,you seem to think this was about me attacking Item 7's faith,and it was not.If it came off that way Item 7, I'm very sorry,and like mrshumphreys said the important thing was nobody got hurt.
