God didn't stop the bullet, but I'll praise him anyway
I am not writing this story to make fun of this poor lady who has suffered through an incident that no human should ever have to go through. This is to simply highlight yet again the mental gymnastics that a believer goes through to justify his/her faith, and to excuse God when he fails to protect them.

Nancy Howard, a woman whom is described as extremely religious and devout to God, was shot in the head by a hitman hired by her husband (also described as an extremely devout man of faith.) Thankfully Nancy survived, though she lost one of her eyes and suffered terrible internal damage. She attributes her "miraculous" survival to God, who she prayed to before loosing consciousness as paramedics tended to her. Naturally, the brilliant neurosurgeons and trauma specialists that battled hard to save her life deserve no credit, for it was her faith in God that saved her life. Which brings up an interesting question, if God was so powerful to save her life (despite the pesky interference of trained medical personnel) why did he not intervene to stop her extremely religious husband from paying a hitman to kill her? Surely, if God is so wonderful he could have changed her husband's heart before he went through with his actions.

And to add icing to the cake, we now hear that she is ready to forgive her husband and take him back, because their deep faith in God is telling them to reconcile. Which begs another question, couldn't God have used his magical powers to bring the couple back together before she ended up with a bullet to the head? Why praise God for waiting to bring them back together after she lost her eye and suffered horrific trauma to her body? That doesn't sound like a wonderful God worthy of any praise.

So in conclusion, praise Jesus for working his magic and helping this devoutly religious couple to get back together in such a wonderful and miraculous manner worthy of praise. And praise Jesus for saving her in spite of the unwanted and unneeded interference of those highly trained medical personnel. Worship Slaves

RE: God didn't stop the bullet, but I'll praise him anyway
Well we have a couple of threads, just for these.
One is the "Thank God" thread.
This maybe would fit there too. Tongue

(Somewhere there is a Thank Jesus thread too, I think).

It is amazing,
"Oh thank god we made it through the tornado, and he only killed 3 babies. Isn't he so wonderful".

Yeah right, and thanks for the tornado in the first damn place.

I'm sorry. I'm new to the forum, so I was not aware of such a thread. But thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will make a note of it for future reference.
