Thanks to Trishia Jacobs who sent this link from CNN.
27% of Americans believe that God plays a role in who wins sporting events (I suspect that percentage is much higher here in Texas…say around 95%).
One of the contributors to the article said that, “these figures reflect many Americans’ belief in a very active God.” So I guess, if you’re like me, you’re wondering where the heck is God the rest of the time, when he’s really needed to affect things like wars, violent crimes and natural disasters.
The article quotes one of the players, Raven’s linebacker Ray Lewis, as saying,
“God doesn’t make mistakes. He’s never made one mistake. … God is so amazing.”
Not one mistake?
When life is good for you, your god doesn’t make mistakes. When life is not good, well….that’s not for us to understand.
Thanks again, Trishia, for sharing.
