Who Started This Myth?

My Son was born without his dad loving or even liking him. His dad left us while i was still breastfeeding. I prayed for god to protect my Son everyday since he was born, i never forgot, i never let up, always always always prayed for my Son. As my Son grew up, he tried so hard to be good, to do things right, to open doors for people, to shake hands, be honest, work hard, get an education, love, pray, believe in spiritualality, be considerate, appreciate, & be respectful. His first girlfriend & the mother of his kids was bi polar and abused him, she cut up his clothes, broke his cds, gave him black eyes, told him he wasn't even a man. He finished college, never did drugs, never smoked ot drank, became a father and made every decision for "the good of the family." He eventually got out of that situation & got his kids full time because their mother left the state. He was a single father and wanted to give them a stable life. He had a great job and the boys were very happy. Then god decided that my Son deserved leukemia. He suffered horribly while the mother of his children found a renewed interest in her children & called the hospital & told him "i hope you die so i can collect social security" "its almost over honey" "you are taking so long to die this is getting annoying" AND NOTHING EVER HAPPENED TO HER! THERE IS NO KARMA! Meanwhile we prayed, begged, had churchmen come in and give blessings, did positive energy posters, group prayers, never left the hospital, took notes of what the doctors were doing, learned they made a lot of guesses & mistakes, we got treated horrible by the people that push hospice because my son kept telling them "NO", watched the doctors stop treating him, refusing to give him any support, fluids, antibiotics,transfusions, i watched him take his last breath. He left 2 sons and there is a god? No one has ever prayed more than us and this is what i got! i hate when people tell me he was so special god needed him! we needed him! no one is better off now except the mother of his kids gets social security money and she learned that she can be as mean as she wants and god will give her whatever she asks for. i will not capitolize god either. im done. i no longer pray, it was the stupidest thing i ever did.

I am really sorry abt you but why you prayed to that person god as he is a myth & it is created by society to fool the world

"THERE IS NO KARMA!"

Karma is not a Christian belief it is from the hindu sects. Why do you proclaim there is no Karma as a Christian?

"did positive energy posters"

What is this positive energy poster? Sounds more New Age in origin then Christian.

Can you tell me what Christian denomination you belonged to?

thanks

oh yes , this probably was a new age thing, but im saying we tried everything we could think of within our power. Our mind was open to anything that might help. The positive energy posters were big sheets of paper we hung on the wall @ the hospital and had everybody put their thoughts and wishes on it. The kids drew pictures, Our whole family put love & prayers & blessings, asking for all the positive energy in the universe, even the nurses. My son even kept asking any clergy member that entered his room "How is this better for anyone?" "My kids won't have a Father, my mom won't have a Son, I have so much to give and so many people to take care of, how can this be part of the big plan?" The clergy would always answer "We don't know" This just seemes unbelievably mean to me. We are given children, we live our life around them, take care of them, love them, watch them take good care of themselves, respect their body, and then watch them die for no good reason, and we aren't allowed to know what happens then. god feels its none of our business after we invested our whole life for them to be happy. Me & his kids are lost now. why are druggies & murderers given perfect health and my son was chosen for a deadly disease & given doctors who knew nothing about the disease? I hear people at my work who say they would do anything for their kids, they would kill whoever tried to hurt their kids, what are we supposed to do if god hurts our kids? Just live in pain? Wow thats a great god! do you not realize how many prayers i said for my son from the day he was born? twice a day for 31 years? all ignored. do you understand what that might feel like? did i not pray with the right words? did i not pray with the proper fleck in my voice? did i pray too tired? sometimes i prayed while i was driving and not on my knees, is that what made god mad at me enough to kill my son? It's OK for him to get angry at us & take revenge on us but we can't get angry at him? Why did he give us a brain if we are meant to be unemotional robots?

I am so sorry for what happened to you but make no mistake. This all powerful entity couldn't care less about you or anyone else for that matter. All you need to do is look around to see all the pain, suffering and injustice good people have to deal with every day. Oh yeah, and he does it to make you better. This is the reasoning of classical abusers. I'm sorry but the reality is you will get nothing but callous indifference from god.

Thanks for that.

All i can do is explain to you what i got from reading the Bible and becoming a Christian. Oh i do not belong to a denomination.

1) As i read it the Bible says that God does not garentee He will intercede to save the life of a dying person because of the prayers of believers.
So i never believed in a God that was forced to grant the will of a person praying to Him if they believed in Him.
2) I however believe in a God that gives one Strengh and peace of mind to get through suffering and loss (and i have losed loved ones i have mourned). God provides solace in the troubles we will face in life. He does not garentee that we will be kept from troubles.

3)So if you believed in a God that would grant you your prayers if you prayed often enough or if you believed hard enough then yes i believe you probably did believe in a myth because from what i read in the bible and observe around me. No such God exists.

4) Secondly you remarked on the injustice of "bad people" not suffering while the "good person" suffered and died. I read in the bible that God loves all people and wants all to repent and accept the Atonement of the Messiah Jesus and have salvation. I don't read of a God that wants to kill sinners as soon as they get past childhood and keep good people alive till their over 100. See if God loves sinners and wants them to be saved. "think about this" Will He not grant them longer lives so as to give them more time to come to their sences and repent and accept Jesus?
Jesus said:
"44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect."

I have another thought for you a question then an answer.

What is ablessing? What is a curse?

A blessing is anthing that leads one to the truth of the will of God
A curse is anything that leads a person away from the truth of the will of God

Something that can feel like a curse and look like a curse can in the long run be a blessing
Something that can feel like a blessing and look like a blessing can be a curse.

Sometimes a death of a loved one can be a blessing If it leads one way from a false view of Gods will towards a true understanding of Gods will. You prayed each day for many years believing in a god that would grant the prayers of a believer. You believed in a god that favoured "good" people in their lives and hated "bad" people. What if God..The real God wanted to absolutly smash that falise view of God that you held so firmly to? How could he do it? What if the death of your Son ultimately leads you to the true God of the bible and to true slavation and eternity with God?

I know you have great anger and hurt inside you now and maybe that will cause you not to take in what i say now. But i hope one day when the mourning has abated you trully seek God anew. Not by litening to preachers preists and their sermons but by reading the Word of God and seeking Gods guidance directly from the Source. He will give you the strengh and peace inside that will sustain you through great troubles.

I hope you come to realise one day even if you cannot see it now, that i do care for you. I have not posted this to condemn but in the hope for your eternal blessing.
