This video gives us the usual spin about the problem of evil, and how no matter what happens in the world, we should just "trust" God. Yep. Just keep on trusting that unseen babysitter cause he obviously has a plan for us. I especially love his comment about how "nothing is thrown our way that is beyond our strength to handle." Uh... not really the case for everyone who has ever died, don't ya think? Care to explain how this works for a small child who has cancer? Don't you think death by cancer was more than the child could handle? And you gotta love the usual talk of how "nobody is really good." I'll grant that no human on this earth is perfect. But there is such a thing as balanced justice. Would any rationale person conclude that everyone who died in the holocaust was imperfect enough to have had that done to them? And it's not like God hasn't interfered before to help those he felt were being treated unjustly (at least according to the Bible). If there really is a God, than we certainly should question why bad things happen to good people and vice versa, because it really doesn't make any sense. Unless of course there is no God. Then it makes perfect sense.
Here we get a nice little lesson about how "unique" Jesus is. Apparently no other religion forgives sin. Might be a good idea to actually read what these other religions teach before trying to tell us what they don't teach.
And Jesus certainly can be seen as unique due to his death and resurrection. Well, as long as you ignore this.
I read this quote on Facebook and I think it summarizes the problem here nicely.
"Yep. All those children stricken with cancer and killed by natural disasters did things their own way, therefor he didn't help them. Makes perfect sense!"
