And about God taking out cancer on his own, I read a quote when I was a kid: the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. Well, if God's real, that's basically what I think he's doing - nothing.
Hey Sophie and everyone,
What really gets me is that I have a "friend" and every Holiday letter I get, she says that God has blessed her family that they have been kept healthy. Hmmm...why is her family any better in God's eyes than mine. We have been crapped on. So does her God have a master plan that some children are supposed to be raed, abused and killed? Nope, I don't think so. Is his plan that bad people live a healthy life and the good peope suffer?
I think it is just plain bad luck and God has nothing at all to do with anythig.
