By watching this short video, you will be able to prove to yourself that the idea of “God’s Plan” is impossible. The goal of this video is to help believers understand this simple fact.
If you believe in God, then you are familiar with God’s Plan. "God's plan" is the way that believers traditionally explain things like amputations, cancer, hurricanes and car accidents. Even if something bad happens, it is actually good because it is part of God's plan.
If you have ever seen this book, you know how pervasive the concept of God’s Plan is. The book is called “A purpose driven life.” According to the cover, it is a #1 New york times best seller. It has sold more than 20 million copies.
We find this remarkable paragraph in Chapter 2:
Because God made you for a reason, he also decided when you would be born and how long you would live. He planned the days of your life in advance, choosing the exact time of your birth and death. The Bible says, "You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!" [Psalm 139:16]
There is also this:
Regardless of the circumstances of your birth or who your parents are, God had a plan in creating you.
God never does anything accidentally, and he never makes mistakes. He has a reason for everything he creates. Every plant and every animal was planned by God, and every person was designed with a purpose in mind.
Under this view of the universe, God plans everything.
If you are a normal, intelligent person, and if you think about God’s plan for more than 30 seconds, you quickly realize that God’s plan is ridiculous, and impossible. Let’s look at four implications of God’s plan.
Implication #1 – God plans all abortions
The book says: "He planned the days of your life in advance, choosing the exact time of your birth and death." Let's examine one simple implication of this statement. What this means is that God has pre-planned every abortion that has taken place on our planet.
About Implication #1
First off this is totally wrong. Yes, God does know when EVERYONE is going to die and yes, He does know how and when and all that jazz. BUT, BUT, God is not happy about abortion. God is not sitting at a desk with his finger on his chin thinking “Hmmm, maybe now is a good time for an abortion.”. NO. First off all, God is NOT the cause of abortions. WE ARE ! God’s not sitting at His desk going “Hm, I think I’ll create abortion.”. NO, WE CREATED the concept of abortion. Because we created the concept of Pro-Choice, when there are THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of people in
Implication #2 – God plans all murders
About Implication #2
All Murders are blameless ? Dude, that line already sounds insane. Yes, even murder is a part of God’s plan ! As horrible a thing as murder is, God has plans for that as well.
Implication #3 – God plans many rapes
About Implication #3
This just gets dumber and dumber. Rapist are scum and they will forever be scum, if you honestly believe rapist should be rewarded then you should be shot. Point blank. I’m joking, but no, seriously if you you do believe rapist should go free something really bad should happen to you. Yes, God knows who your parents are and He knows when you’ll be born. All of that is very true. But what is Implication #3 trying to say ?
Just to play Devil’s Advocate let’s indulge the idea (if you’re a woman) say this horrible crime did happen to you and as a result you are pregnant. Quite a scary thought isn’t it ? But what are you going to do about the child ? Granted I sympathize with you, because A: You’re carrying a responsibility you didn’t want and B: The source of your condition has obviously got to cause you great amount of grief. So what do you do ? Are you going to abort this poor child who didn’t ask to be born and is blameless is this entire event ? Are you going to keep him ? Let’s fast forward and say you end up having the child. But you just can’t get over where the child came from, so obviously you don’t wanna keep the child. So you do the next best thing you give the child up for adoption.
Implication #4 – You have no free will and prayer is meaningless
About Implication #4
Well duh, but from the sound of it you’re making it sound as if God grabs a shotgun and tell you marry this chick with no teeth. Little humor just to lighten the mood.
YES, God knows who you’re going to marry and God has a way of telling you when you encounter the right person. God’s not gonna come down from Heaven in the middle of your date and say “John Doe, break up with Jane Doe and Marry Samantha !” No, God doesn’t operate like that anymore. If you’ve ever talked to people who have been in longer standing relationships and by that I mean people who are happy in their relationships they’ll tell you “I felt something and I knew I had to get to know this person better and when I met so and so, it just felt right.”. That’s God telling you that’s her/him. That’s the one I picked for you. And if you know anything about God, God doesn’t pare you up with trash unless that’s a part of his plan. But God WILL deliver.
So let's review
Do you believe that:
- God plans all abortions?
- Murderers should go free?
- Rapists should be rewarded?
- You have no free will?
Probably not. Therefore, you cannot believe in God’s plan.
So let’s review
Do you agree that.
- God is trying to show us how wrong abortions are?
- That even murder can result in something positive?
- That even rape can result in something positive?
- That God can and will works things out for you?
If so then you do believe in God’s plan.
It is time for us to state the truth. That without a God there would just be the negative left over from the evil acts. But since God is in control all of the time that He even can create a positive from the negative. This guy chooses to look at things this way because He can not see the positive, he can only see the negative of these events. If was a believer he would see that even in the midst of a tidal wave, war, whatever God is ALWAYS, ALWAYS in control and regards of ANY and ALL results, God is still in control. Thank you for reading. I love you all and may God bless you all. Thanks again. Have a good day and a good night.
