In this article:
We find this quote:
[D]id you know that you are pre-approved for a free blessing right now? The Bible tells me so. If you have a need in your life, Jesus Christ can fix it — no strings attached. The price for your sin has been paid for you by Jesus, on Calvary’s cross. Things will get better for you; if you will only trust in him.
The good news is that Jesus Christ is a right now God, savior and friend. He brings to those who trust in him a right now blessing, love, forgiveness, hope and peace. He is a God who listens, speaks and moves on our behalf!
“If you have a need in your life, Jesus Christ can fix it.” Really? If that is the case, why doesn’t Jesus heal the millions of people who have cancer right now? Why doesn’t Jesus help the billions of people on the planet living in abject poverty? Why doesn’t Jesus save the 21,000 children who will die today [ref]? These people all need help. Jesus is omniscient, so he knows they need help. Yet no help will come.
The fact that someone can say, “If you have a need in your life, Jesus Christ can fix it,” while looking out at the world and seeing how mismatched that statement is with reality, demonstrates a form of insanity. It is quite obvious that God is not active in our lives.
Deepak Chopra has started a new series of Blog Posts in which he asks the following question:
What if we erase the slate and look clearly at the situation. Something terrible happens, people suffer, they implore God for help, but no help comes. If such a thing occurred when a house caught fire and the fire trucks never came, naturally the blame would fall on those who are assigned to rescue us. Is it fair to apply the same standard to a God who fails to show up?
Is it fair to apply the same standard to a God who fails to show up? Yes, of course it is. God is supposed to be omnibenevolent and perfectly moral. If God sees suffering and takes no action, then he violates these principles. There is no way that a perfectly moral being (who is also omnipotent) can see someone suffering and stand by without helping. This is explained by God himself (in the form of Jesus) in this parable:
New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Good Samaritan
25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”
27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”
28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
If God exists, then “Go and do likewise” applies to God as well. The fact that God ignores all of the tragedy on earth proves that God is imaginary. Strange that Chopra cannot see that.

Some? Some question?
It might be the most audacious, and perhaps the most presumptuous, ad slogan ever devised.
“Find God’s match for you,” sayeth ChristianMingle.com, an online dating service that suggests in its advertising that its computer-generated matches are, well, made in heaven.
The slogan appears just about everywhere — on the Web, on TV, in your email box — suggesting that ChristianMingle may even have the Man Upstairs in its corner.
Which raises a few questions about ChristianMingle. Such as: How does it know who God wants to hook you up with?
The insanity of Christians is perfectly displayed here. They believe that God is all-powerful, omniscient. They also believe that God has a plan:
Yet they also believe that they need a dating site. The utter irrationality, delusion and insanity is over the top in this case.

Here is an article that claims God will never let you down:
So remember that regardless to what difficult and seemingly impossible situations are pressing in on you, just know that God won’t let you down because He is faithful.
Imagine the level of insanity it takes to make a statement like this. Every year, 10 million kids die of things like starvation. More than half a million Americans died of heart disease last year, and another half million of cancer. 100,000 people died in accidents. And then there are the mass murders at places like Sandy Hook school. Was God “faithful” in any of these deaths? Clearly not!
Whatever the cause of your crisis be it unemployment, marital problems, sickness, etc. although things around you and even your emotions change, God doesn’t because He is faithful….
So why are you worried? You cast doubt on God’s very nature when doubting the outcome after placing the situation in His hands.
God is true to Himself and His righteous nature. His word will produce the results of His promises due to His faithfulness to His word and you can expect the results of His promises when applying the word to your life. His promises are sure and trustworthy.
So think about this. You are sick, you pray, you go to the doctor. First, why do you need to see a doctor if God is faithful? Second, last year about 200,000 people who did see a doctor died in the U.S. because of medical errors. What wonderful, faithful God would allow that?
The only way to say “god is faithful” is to completely ignore reality. Where does this level of insanity come from?
