Christians would argue that god has a divine plan for everyone. No matter what you do or the decisions you make, every single life has a pre destined ending his own way. Well... If thats the case, whats the point in praying? If youre praying, youre disrupting gods plan for you.

Ex: a young girl gets cancer, everyone prays for her to live, yet she dies. Well that was gods plan to take her and youre a selfish christian for challenging his decision for her fate!

Sounds Dumb right?

If it has a divine plan wouldn't that negate the need to study a religious doctrine?

Tow hands working are worth more than a 1000 praying.
