KDawg Posted March 15, 2011 Share Posted March 15, 2011 I asked this question in another thread, but it kind of derailed that one... So I want to pose it here. I'm going to say outright that I don't mean offense to anyone. I'm always going to say outright that what happened in Japan is a horrific, and tragic event. And very sad. But here's my question, and yes its serious and no its not meant to get people riled up. It's an honest question... I keep hearing people asking others to pray for those in Japan... Which, I understand is just a gesture to show the Japanese and anyone else that was over there some good will. But, what exactly will praying accomplish? And I don't mean that in an anti-religion way. I mean, God is all knowing. He was aware of the events occuring. He may not have caused the events, but he certainly didn't stop them. What will praying do for those people now? Why not send care packages and money? That will help them more than prayers at this point. Of course, I think I may have mentioned my own question... It's a good will gesture. But praying now won't make God hit rewind. What's done is done, at least until we figure out how to time travel. Again... I'm not intending for this to be an argument. Rather, I'd like this to be a discussion. I realize that many will disagree with me, here... And that's more than okay... But let's have a respectful discussion...
