Stamp: God's Will by 8manderz8 Stamp: God's Will by 8manderz8
*The quote is from this Anon question here.

I obviously don't believe in "God," but one of the complaints about abortion people use a lot is that it's not "God's Will/Plan/Etc" for the person involved to have an abortion.

I have to call bullshit on that.

Unless you're prepared to say that God exists only in your own mind, and that the only reason God agrees with you all the time is because you are God,, because he is your delusion, then you've no place telling people what "God's Plan" is for them.

And I'm guessing that YOU know the intricacies of "God's" plan?

I know the morality that God desires and His value toward human life.

I think you're missing the point of my stamp.

No I'm not. I know God's standards that he set and I have a personal relationship with Him, hence my knowledge of His will, but you would deny that. I also know that it contradicts the Scripture, hence, my knowledge of how this is truly not God's plan. Since you aren't a Christian, I would seriously doubt that you have any capability to know God's will.

Gotta love the condescension. Tell me, if you have a personal relationship with God, why does he allow children to die? If he is all powerful, he certainly must be able to stop things like cancer. If he is a benevolent god, he certainly would want to. If he's all knowing, he must know how to stop it. Why then does he allow it? Also, what's his accent =p

The answer is the consequences of sin in this world. Sin is worse to God than the waste that is in our sewers and yet He loves us still. Everything is used for the good of those who love God and so the good are tested through trails and tribulations alot like Job. Innocent people die because of the hands of the guilty and God is merciful enough to allow them more time on Earth for them to have an extended chance of knowing Him. Part of this I know from experience for earlier this year, a dear childhood friend of mine was killed in a car crash due to the stupidity of a drunk driver. It gutted me but I knew that God was merciful even to the guilty for my good friend already knew Jesus as her savior and so she was guarenteed salvation. It greives me to this day that she died but the trail of pain made me a stronger man for I knew that God shared my suffering. God Himself does not like allowing these things to happen, but He does not want us to have an easy life but to be strong people.

I ended up making a video in honor of my friends memory www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHzmV6….<?xml:namespace prefix = da />Waaaah!

We will have to agree to disagree regarding the existence of sin, I don't believe there's enough evidence to speak to the existence of it, but I understand that religion and belief does bring a certain comfort to some, and that it is an absolute necessity for some folks. That all being said, I'm very sorry to hear about your friend. My deepest sympathies go to you.

People are trying to argue in the comments that abortions are bad.  That doesn't matter here.  That's not what she's saying.  All she said is that the argument that it's God's plan for you to get pregnant is not a valid argument because anything you do can be called God's plan.  You can be anti-abortion and still agree with it.  It's just pointing out a logical fallacy.
