School Board Target: "GOD BLOCKED THE BULLET!"

    I find it interesting that a Christian on FB linked to this story, claiming the gunman shot at him at "point blank" range. A quick review of the video shows the gunman to be, IDK, 8 or so feet away. Yeah, there's no other explanation. He certainly couldn't have accidentally missed, eh?

    Seems a bit egotistical for him to think that God would protect him but let 170,000+ innocent people (including children) die in Haiti. He must be pretty important compared to those folks.

    I'm glad God is looking out for this guy personally, I really do.

    I saw the video. God had nothing to do with it, the shooter was a bad shot.

    I feel sure evidence will show that the bullet hit the wall at the same velocity as any other bullet untouched by god.

    There is a very good chance the shooter wanted to scare, not kill.

    I liked the part where the lady sneaked up behind the gunman and hit him in the head with her purse. If the guy had seriously wanted to kill somebody, she would have been the first to go. He wanted to scare people and vent.

    Yeah, if they could produce a smashed round that dropped to the ground in front of the desk with no sign of impact elsewhere... then I'll feel the need to investigate further. Until then, his claim doesn't help my lack of faith. It just demonstrates that his faith = the ease in which things can be attributed to the spirit realm without investigating more rational possibilities.

    Some Christians seem to think this credit to god makes a good witness or gives him glory. But it's only a miracle to those who already have that faith. It certainly doesn't boost the faith of skeptics like me.

    Reminds me of a KH build where the Sunday speaker related an account in which a worker with a nail gun (at another quickbuild) fired several nails into the backside of the hall, not realizing that those nails were shooting through the material and into the auditorium, which should've been packed. Amazingly the "friends" weren't inside at that point and nobody got hurt! THE HAND OF GOD INTERVENED! The speaker didn't say that but that was the conclusion you were supposed to draw.

    That made me wonder why a "brother" got shot in the gut with a nail on a hall build when I was a kid. Where was God then?

    Six and BB, I think you're right. He could've killed that guy if he really wanted to.

    I commented on FB and the Christian who said the shot was from "point blank" range replied:

    Who are we to say that if God does A he must do B?
    We dont know enough to understand how God works and thinks.
    All we know is from what he has given us.
    But as the creations and ot the creator we are inherently inferior and thus incapable of understanding his ways fully.
    You could play the "Well what about" game all day, but you never can understand why.
    Assuming all bad things that happen are God's fault is assuming that God takes the time to control everything. If he did that you would never be able to question God. You would have no freewill.

    Just my 2cents anyway...

    This kinda thinking sounds so familiar.
