One of the most annoying things about Christians is their insistence that god takes care of them--even at the expense of others. I have a long-term friend (from the sixth grade, and that is 55 years ago) who is is nominally Catholic but is more akin to a born again. Ironically, she was raised in a nonreligious household but always "knew" that god loved her. I was raised Southern Baptist.
But to the present . . . she lives in Cali and I live in Missouri, and we mainly keep in touch on FB. She, her husband, and her sister are just completing a trip across the US and she had posted several times a day about what they have seen, and every relative and every landmark has a remark about Jesus and/or god. Niagara Falls was the splendor of god's creation, but I had to put her on a 30 day ignore when she wrote that it was raining so bad the road was obscured and asked people to pray for them. Several hours later, she posted that "god was good" because the rain stopped. I am 200% positive that prayers had nothing to do with the rain stopping.
But the inherent lack of thought and even selfishness that is apparent in these types of situation is baffling. What if the farmers in Illinois needed that rain while she is asking god to stop it?
Just musing . . .
I was eating lunch while watching the news in a company break room a while back. They were talking about a tornado that had hit the midwest and showing videos of the devestation. An old coot sitting a few seats away said, "Ain't it amazing what the hand of God can do?" I was like, "Wait. What? I don't think god had anything to do with that." He didnt say anything else but I'm pretty sure he hated me
Mentally ill people are running loose everywhere called freedom OF religion while mentally healthy Atheists are denied freedom FROM theocracy.....Congress started forcing school kids to prEy to the flag in 1955 and put the evil lie IN gawd WE TRUST ON ALL PAPER MONEY that same session and idiot Eisenhower signed the fucked up law
And yet the same people who will in all seriousness claim god changed the weather or the laws of physics for their personal convenience will look at a terrible disaster or human tragedy and state in all seriousness that "It is all part of gods plan."
I remember hearing people (especially youngish women) taking about being in a huge parking lot and finding a parking space just where they needed it and god was soo good to them. And I'm thinking millions of starving babies and god takes the time to clear a parking space for you. Yeah right.
You might want to point out to her that she is looking like a fool (in some circles anyway) because she keeps mentioning god or jesus in everything she does. Ask her what she would think of you if you loved satan that much... or if you mentioned you were Atheist that much.
Seems similar to me like couples who fight in front of everyone and just don't care. There is a time and a place for everything. Take that shit home with you... I don't want to hear it!
Or... tell her god/jesus only loves her in church and they should only be mentioned there!
