Hi all, first post here. Great forum...
This isn't an argument for believing in Christianity, but in all my years of "searching for God" in the church, it always drove me nuts how God/Jesus took ALL the credit for the good, but NONE of the blame for the bad.
If something good happened to someone, i.e., job promotion, healthy child, removed a wine stain from a shirt, then the it was the Lord's will and it was because of him. The person couldn't take credit as it would be evil pride.
However, if something bad happened to someone, then it was our evil, sinful nature that caused the situation. The person gets the blame, NEVER God.
Geesh, talk about a huge EGO!
