Anguish Posted August 7, 2010 Report Share Posted August 7, 2010 Frankly, I do. He definitely seems to have His Favorites and His Non-Favorites. And I'm not sure it has anything at all to do with how dedicated they are to HIM. It all seems pretty arbitrary to me. The people God favored in the Bible (with rare exceptions) never seemed to me to be any more pious or devout or "worthy" than the ones God treated like crap. And as someone brought up in an evangelical, fundamentalist "Bible-reading" church, I know quite a bit about it.I never did understand God, and not because God is so much smarter than me. He's just a hell of a lot more arbitrary in the way he treats people. NOT the best way to build up a fan-club.As St. Teresa of Avila once told God: "It's no wonder you have so few friends, if this is the way you treat them!"
