God reaches down and heals Olympic triathlete – ignores 10 million starving children and lets them die
Imagine the unbelievable arrogance it takes to make a statement like this one by Hunter Kemper:
Kemper sustained an injury to his arm that required surgery, with a plate and 13 screws inserted into his elbow. Two months later he developed a staph infection. He began to think that his chances for a 2012 Olympic appearance were over.
But Kemper says God healed him from the injury and enabled him to compete in the Olympic trials, where he earned a spot on the Olympic team for the fourth time. He will compete in the triathlon event on Tuesday (Aug. 7) — one of only two athletes to participate all four times since the sport became an Olympic event in 2000.
“What a journey I’ve been on the past six months,” Kemper said. “For me to overcome that, and feel like I have God every step of the way with me, it’s been real eye-opening.”
According to Kemper, God reached down and healed him. If that it true, then God watched 10 million children die of starvation and cholera last year and did nothing. God oversaw millions of miscarriages. God let cancer kill millions more.
Why would anyone want to be associated with a God who is such a capricious monster?
