There has a lot been going on in the church that has not been Godly. Too many clicks, too much talking behind each others backs, not taking care of their own, and deacons who cases too much of what others think instead of God. I'm not saying I'm any better. I am a Christian who sins and only God can make me worthy. I have so many memories from that "building" and another will be built. We have to remember to GLORIFY GOD not the world.

There are cliques in every church. Also there is too much talk. Each person is responsible for himself and no one else.

That's typical of any church, which is why there are so many churches and denominations.

Let's use Mike Huckabee's logic. He said..
"We don't have a crime problem, a gun problem or even a violence problem. What we have is a sin problem. And since we've ordered god out of our schools, and communities, the military and public conversations, you know we really shouldn't act so surprised... when all hell breaks loose." http://www.policymic.com/articles/20827/newto...

So, using that logic, I guess that church lacked God. Maybe they should have prayed harder.

Around 1,300 church fires a years average. http://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/tfrs/v...
God can't even prevent fires in his own house. Smokey the Bear has a better track record.

There's your "derp"....

Wow...
I feel sorry for all of you saying these horrible things. You will find out your fate for this when you face Judgement Day. I'm praying for you.

Am I afraid of hell? Do I worry about what might happen to me when I die? No. If there is a god who punishes people for rational doubt, why would you want to spend an eternity with it anyway? Such a capricious, egotistical, and nasty god wouldnít be much fun. If you canít trust it to be as moral as you are, you canít trust it to keep its promises and make heaven nice or even let you stay. Not spending eternity with such a being doesnít sound like much of a loss.

Pray for me? Prayer works? Except when it doesn't. And when it doesn't, you play the "God's will" card...brushing over the promise in Mark 11:24: "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Or Matthew 17:20: "For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you." Or James 5:15-16: "And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."

Think about it. If prayer truly works, and we are truly under God's care, why pay an insurance premium? Why hire a physician? Why rely on man-made medications? And why is everyone praying instead of asking why Yahweh (who supposedly has every hair on our heads numbered) would require one of his children to be peeled out of a flaming school bus wreck with the Jaws of Life to endure excruciating skin grafts?

How ridiculous are our prayers in the grand scheme of things? Football hero Tim Tebow prays on the football field while 30,000 children starve to death worldwide. Christmas shoppers pray to find the latest gift fad while tsunamis and earthquakes bury whole cities in an explosion of swirling, violent debris. Believers pray to find their car keys while Taliban hostages are beheaded on the internet. We find a good parking space at the mall? Praise God. A child dies of leukemia? Oh...that's just terrible, but God is love and he has a plan. And, of course, anytime the law of averages or happy coincidence makes a wish come true? DING! God answers prayer! Convenient. This is monumentally imbalanced, lazy thinking. Prayer is the placebo. The empty calorie. The Blue Pill.
Of course, none of these uncomfortable challenges to prayer really faze the faithful. They'll probably stare at me with pity and pray for me. They'll expound that God works in mysterious ways. His master plan is above our understanding. He allows us to be tested. Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden and ruined everything. Humankind has rejected God and now pays the price as Satan runs rampant in this world. It's somehow our fault. But Heaven will one day alleviate all pain. God is good. God is love. Kumbaya.
When all of the unheeded prayers fall back down from the sky, all we human beings have is each other, and for every plea to our respective deities (there are too many to count), we should offer 1000 gestures of thanks and support to our doctors, scientists, rescue workers, medical staff, volunteers and the very human hands which provide the true solutions. So please don't "pray for me". Do something relevant like educate yourself.
