Veteran Says God Kept Him From Drowning When Tractor Rolled Into Pond With Him Trapped Inside



The flip side to this is that in the accident last week out on the bypass, God wanted those people to die. See where this version of the prosperity gospel breaks down?

It is appointed to man once to die. There is a date and time known only to God and at that moment I will die. Same goes for this Veteran and for you and for my sweet baby grand-niece.

When it is not our time to die, even a flipping tractor can’t kill us. When it is our time, nothing can keep us alive.


It sounds as if you are saying that miracles don’t happen and that prayers can’t help. I hope I am misunderstanding what it is you mean.
