The statue was an idol. He prayed to the wrong thing.<quoted text>So your god apparently loves the idea of human sacrifice, yes? He could see no other way for Israel to become a nation without the sacrifice of millions of men women and totally innocent children? This all powerful God of your who loves us dearly, a God that has no limits to what he can do, chose to sit idly by and watch millions of his prized creation perish in most horrible ways. REALLY??? I guess he just loves human sacrifice, what other possible reason could there be for him NOT find an alternative to the suffering, torture and death of millions of Jews.
Answered prayer eh......must we do the whole millions of amputees who's prayers were NEVER EVER answered?
Just a story, but kind of telling.......A man went everyday to pray for his sick wife. He went to a massive statue of Christ on the cross to pray. Everyday for a year he prayed, but his poor wife died anyway. After her death he asked the parish priest if he could clean the statue as it was neglected over the years. he was given permission and on his first day of cleaning the statue, it toppled over on him crushing him to death. He apparently lived for a few hours in horrible agony before he died. Yeah, I know....."Who ca know the mind of God"........God works in mysterious ways" Standard replies when all reason and logic fail.
You were given one body to work with. Make do with what you got.
