I’ll probably never understand some thoughts of believers. Not just “guardian angels” being thoughtlessly written into news reports, causing “only” serious injuries or high damages in accidents instead of death – when they could just prevent these accidents altogether.
If for instance a man – a former pro wrestler, though that doesn’t really matter here – gets hospitalized unconsciously with a fever of 104 due to multiple infections, and as soon as he’s better, his wife writes on Facebook:
Thank you all for all the prayers. Fred is awake this morning and talking .He is still very weak and sick but will be better in a few days. God is so good to him. […]
Well, I don’t know, but if that God really wanted to show how good he is to him, couldn’t he have stopped the infections a little sooner?
Or maybe that God is angry at the wrestler for having attacked Hulk Hogan, and caused the infections himself – and it’s only because of the doctors that he got better and survives?
Do such believers want to hang on to a “dear God” no matter what? Do they just turn off their reasoning? Anyway, I think doctors and nurses deserve some words of praise in such cases, too…
