I was listening to a radio show, and they were talking about how prayer worked and this person was healed and that person got a job and another one returned to the Church, etc., and isn’t it all wonderful?
But… what about those who pray and all that good stuff doesn’t happen? People die, remain jobless, and don’t return to the Church all the time!
And then we say, its God’s will, and God will open a window, and all those things.
I just feel weird about people saying how great God is because some people got what they wanted (which I am happy about, don’t get me wrong!) because we don’t really say anything when people pray and don’t get what they prayed for.
Maybe I think this type of attitude is promoting a bad theology? I’m not exactly sure what is bothering me about this. It just seems not in synch, somehow.
