I find it very interesting how many people use the “idea of God” to their own benefit. For example, have you ever heard someone who didn’t believe in God say, “why does God allow bad things? If you’re God is so merciful how come He lets people die?”
These people always question God when calamity arises . . . when there is an opportunity to complain, chances are, some person will be complaining against God. However, if something good happens, you won’t find those same people asking why God is so good to them.
When anything bad happens, people are quick to blame the wrong person . . . when anything good happens, people are slow to give credit to the right Person! Their hearts have been switched against God.
