"God has better things to do than worry about X"

#1OMGWTFPIEPosted 9/14/2013 3:33:17 PM
I see this response a lot, and I am just curious, what exactly is God preoccupied with that he doesn't deal with whatever issue some individual deems irrelevant? Why can't He worry about whether someone believes in Him, whether someone has premarital sex, and other such things?

If god is omnipotent, he literally can't have anything better to do.

Just seems to be misplaced priorities. It's not that a being of his stature can't worry about such things as nitro said, but that it seems rather insignificant in the grand scheme of things that he does so. Kinda like us caring intimately about that one bacteria on our arm and its daily behaviors.

That being said, perhaps it isn't a great argument.

Only poor believers, or idiots say that sort of thing. If you bring anything to God with earnest prayer in your heart he will listen to you. I have prayed about the craziest things, from girlfriends to video games. And God heard them all.

Dont believe fools, or people in general. Believe and trust in God's Word and all your questions will be answered. The ones that arent, just go to Him in prayer.

Jesus loves you.

Tried that. Didn't work. And I didn't ask for trivial crap like girlfriends or video games or curing muscle tension.

I said he will hear you, not give you anything youwant. God is not a genie. Build your faith first...

Been there, done that, doesn't work that way.

Isn't the fact that he answered your prayers the reason you believe he hears you? Isn't the main reason you believe because you think he healed your TMJ and fixed your car?

How do you know for God fixed your TMJ? When did he fix your car? That's a new one. Does he inflate the tires too when they get low?
#9Faust_8Posted 9/14/2013 9:26:14 PM
Oh he has proof that God did those things. He just won't show it to anyone.

Could care less = you care at least somewhat. Couldn't care less = you don't care at all.
