Don't you just love how god will help junkies and alcoholics at there lowest point in life.
Yup. Rather sad, isn't it. I am sure everyone here has had low points in their lives and some of us might not have turned to jesus to "save" us; we analyzed the situation and found our own way out and took full credit for it.
wsyderider, I know how you must've felt with the drugs and alcohol. A few years ago I spent some time in rehab and another 5 months in counseling for drugs and alcohol. I hate to break it to you but you escaped all that on your own grounds, with no divine intervention, so stop giving god the credit because you are the only reason you are clean. Deep down inside you decided to get sober yourself.
If your god is so wonderful he should definitely give those kids something special instead of you. Even in your darkest moment, your most lowest point in life your suffering comes no where even close to what the starving children are dealing with. Starvation is probably the hardest thing to cope with because it's a long and painful death, much worse than withdrawal effects from drugs, not hangovers, not even having a broken cell phone. Even if your god exists and what you say is true I most definitely would not worship him for simply forgetting/ignoring those who need a lot more than we do.
