God's Plan is Impossible...REFUTED !


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.

And this:

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.

In addition, the mother who requests the abortion and the doctor who performs it are blameless. Since it is God who planned the abortion of the child (God chose the "exact time" of the death), the mother and doctor are simply puppets who are fulfilling God's plan. You can also see that all the Christians who are fighting against abortion are missing the point. They are actually fighting against God's plan, and their fight is completely futile. God is the all-powerful ruler of the universe, and his plan is for more than a million children a year to die in the United States through abortion. Each one of those abortions was meticulously planned by God, so fighting against abortion is a totally wasted effort.

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 America and the world isn’t self who would kill to have a child and yet we have pro-choice.

So how can this be a part of God’s plan ? Dude, it’s God showing us exactly how screwed up we are ! Pro Choice shouldn’t even be a concept ! But it is. God’s not happy about babies dying. But He’s trying to show us there error of our ways. I mean someone has to look at abortion and say “This is sick !” but someone else will look at it and say “It’s a good idea.”. And I can say with all certainty that God agrees that this is a bad idea. But He’s waiting for us to realize it. And here’s the funny part, we aren’t. So God just letting us continue to kill each other until we take a good look at what we’re doing. Like any good parent God is showing us where we were wrong. That’s how it’s part of God’s plan.

Implication #2 – God plans all murders

In the same way, if God chooses the "exact time" of death, then all murders are planned by God, and murderers are simply God’s puppets. Murderers are completely blameless.

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.

How can murder be a part of God’s plan ? Case in point. The Virginia Tech shooting was an awful, awful thing. It was a horrible, horrible act. BUT, in the midst of that people are brought together and we see what’s important, for that point in time we lose cliques and “coolness” and we forget who’s a dork and who’s a loser and for that one moment we are all people. People who are there for each other and people who are all on an equal field. For that moment we see things as they should be. And I don’t mean during the shooting, I mean after the shooting. In the aftermath of something that awful, we should be able to see that none of us are above anything and we are all truly equal. God does use murderer to show us this and other things about us. God did not tell that guy to pick up a rifle and mow down people at will. But God used that moment in time to give them and the rest of us a wake up call. That we cannot be divided. We have to be there for each other. That’s the way I see it at least. I mean if I did experience a situation like that and I hope and pray I never do and believe me my heart goes out to those who have, but this is what I would take from it.

Implication #3 – God plans many rapes

Since God decided when you would be born, and God knew who your parents would be, It means that every rape resulting in a conception must be part of God’s plan. All of these rapists should be rewarded for fulfilling god’s plan.

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.

Now let’s say on the other side of town there’s a happy couple who’ve been having trouble conceiving and they’re only option of ever having a family is adoption. So they go to the adoption agency and they adopt your child. So the child is brought up in a home of love and caring, you’re life will probably never be the same BUT at least you can rest knowing that somewhere you brought some kind of good to not one but two lives ! So yeah, even rape is a part of God’s plan. YES !

Implication #4 – You have no free will and prayer is meaningless

Who will you marry? You have no choice. Your spouse was pre-chosen by God for you so that you would create the children who are a part of his plan. You also have no choice in the number of children you will have -- God has pre-planned their births. Where will you live? God plans that too.

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.

And of course God knows how many kids you’ll have ! And you’ve always had no choice in how many children you’re going to have, that’s always been up to A: Your Sperm count (if you’re a guy) and B: How much pain your wife is wiling to go through (little bit more humor, sorry ladies). And of course God knows where your going to live. God’s not gonna send you to live in the middle of a craphole…unless he has a plan behind that, but God will send you to some place good. Some place where you can be at peace, and you’ll know it’s right, you’ll feel it. If you ever talked to people who did move or brought a house and they say things like “It felt right.” That’s God telling you, this is the spot I want you to live in. But just to be equal let’s say God has your family move to the ghetto, where there’s crack and drive by shootings and what a hooker on every corner. Why would God have someone live in such a place? We first of all consider this, Jesus was from the ghetto of Israel. Nazareth was a pretty bad place. And say your kid grows up to become a surgeon or a police officer. He becomes living proof that your environment doesn’t make you. He becomes proof that even children from the ghetto can becomes something more than a crack head and pimp and gang member. That’s God’s plan ! That’s how it works !

So let's review

Do you believe that:

  1. God plans all abortions?
  2. Murderers should go free?
  3. Rapists should be rewarded?
  4. You have no free will?

Probably not. Therefore, you cannot believe in God’s plan.

It is time for us to state the truth. “God’s Plan” is ridiculous. There is no “plan”. The statement "It is part of God's plan" is one of those meaningless ideas that believers use because they do not think about what they believe. If they would think, and if they would look at the data all around them, they would very quickly realize that God’s plan is impossible and that God is imaginary.

So let’s review

Do you agree that.

  1. God is trying to show us how wrong abortions are?
  2. That even murder can result in something positive?
  3. That even rape can result in something positive?
  4. 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.
