What did they do that was so wrong?

All the people who died in Haiti because they weren't special enough for God to keep them alive until they were rescued like all the ones we're hearing about. What was their crime to keep God from saving them, too?

  • We will never understand everything. But you shouldn't be blaming God for this. Blame Sin and the devil. Not God.

  • So the ones who are saved are credited to God and the ones who died are credited to Satan. Since more died than were rescued, does that mean Satan is stronger?

  • Then why weren't they saved like the other ones He saved? There are questions and journals all over CM about the people who were rescued by God's grace and sustained by their faith.

  • woah woah... who says that god did this to be mean in anyway? he took haiti home! if you've ever been there you'd understand. it is really sad because our world just lost thousands of smiles and voices and embraces and memories... but think of the people "saved", they are probably wondering what THEY did to deserve this disaster. but everything happens for a reason. those saved have more to do on the earth and the ones taken were done and have served their purpose... just like everyone else that is taken, in our standards, early.

    are you saying that everyone that dies, is somehow, being punished by God? haiti just brought a world together- remember that. God is just reminding people that we still have the ability to care.

  • God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts not our thoughts. He operates from Grace and Love and we may never understand why some died and some didn't. All is for His glory and yes for many that is hard to comprehend.

  • God kills at his discretion. It's in the book called the "bible".

  • Apparantly b/c those people who died didn't accept God as his savior....or some crap like that. THerefore, God didn't waste his time saving them.
