Sandra Cantru's alledged killer a woman and Sunday School teacher.....

Why should we not question God about this? Sure she is a human, but if you can't trust a pastor's daughter, who can you trust? I'm not blaming, but this just does not make any sense!!!

  • It doesn't make sense to me, either.

  • We are all responsible for our own actions. We are not born perfect. True, you'd think the woman would have appreciation for good morals and even applied them to her life, but I guess it just goes to show how very fragile we are. Maybe she had mental problems, maybe she was just down right evil. Any way you slice it, we can't blame God for what she decided to do of her own free will.

  • Why should we not question God? Because he is the Alpha and Omega, "I AM," the author of life and omniscient and omnipotent. He owes us nothing. He is certainly not responsible for the follies of man or what humans do in his name or while carrying his name as "Christian."

    There are two very simple directions God could have taken with the world. We can either have free-will which will allow people to harm others and make mistakes as well as live their lives and have a choice. OR, the world could be perfect because there is no choice and no one has the ability to do anything other than "good." We had the second choice in the garden of Eden. "The Tree" served as an option to choose evil, because without the option of evil, good cannot exist. When given the option, we used our free-will to choose evil. Despite man setting these actions into play, we continue to question God about it to this very day.

  • We choose to "take his name in vain" by calling ourselves a Christian and then doing anything but what God would have his followers do (which is what that commandment actually means, it doesn't refer to saying "oh my God." ect). It is a choice. By their fruits, ye shall know them. One might speculate that due to her actions (aka "fruit") she wasn't really a Christian at all. Regardless, the "why" question is better left to the person responsible for the actions that they took rather than God.

  • This kind of stuff sickens me to my very core. No innocent child should ever ever be subject to the hideous acts that occur on a daily basis in this country of the "free."

  • because every one has free will which god can not take away. so if someone does some thing evil like this and god lets it happen is because his hands are tied. he can not go against his own laws. which gives people the right to choose right from wrong.

  • She was HUMAN. God gave peopel choices to make, he said you could choose. What ever you choose is alright with him as long s you can handle the repercutions of your actions. Those are her demons. And the fast that she was a pastors daughter has absolutly NOTHING to do with it

  • I agree with November. I also want to point out something... she was the granddaughter of the pastor of the church there. They knew about her background and still let her be a Sunday school teacher. Were they wise to do that? No I do not think so. They made wrong choices as well. Some churches do background checks and do not allow people with any kind of record teach. It is like teachers in a school. Same thing! These are children and it is our duty as an employer family or not to protect them.
    Since this happened 25 miles from my home... it's a bit too close for me and I have a friend who lives there with a 5 yr old daughter .. her husband is a cop there. Sighs... too sickening to me for sure!
