I have had this disscussion with many of people before how can one person not need the faith in God.. how can one get through life and daily mistakes and problems without God.. who do people think they are to not believe in him.. what makes people think the way they do.. And how do you properly talk to someone or have a debate if they say i need drugs not god or. if they just say they dont need him.. i need some advice.. i was in the 11th grade when one of the worst days of my life happened i didnt know how i was gonna make it through life... it was oct..21st 2005 and that morning my cousin shot himself in the face and died.. but i still made myself go to school that day and i got to see my best friend and he was there for me talked to me.. later that evening we went on our two seperate ways it was a friday night he had a girlfriend and i had a boyfriend.. and my boyfriend , one of my girlfriends and i went and worked in a haunted house that night. and i got a call saying that my best friend and another one of my friends had died in a car wreck that night.. how in the world would i have gotten over having 3 special people to me die in the same day if God wasnt by my side!!

I'm sorry to hear that this happened to you. But you are right, when you don't have God by your side, it would be impossible for you to cope up with that problem. I know that everything has a purpose. And God allowed things like these to happen for you to call on to Him and for you to cling to Him only. Although His ways are not our ways, we must obey God in our lives. What is important that you will never get lose focus and hope on God. I know that God knows what is best for us also. We cannot expect others to believe in God because the god of this world has blinded their minds too. We just pray that God will touch their hearts. It is a person's choice what is right and what is wrong. God cannot manipulate our free will. For now, God is giving us all chance to ask for forgiveness. To give our life to God and trust Him alone.

I agree with you; someone, somewhere was praying on behalf of all those that would be touched by this tragic day. And God intervened and got those who would accept His support through it. I am amazed at how quickly the notion of God is becoming an evil in our society. Just beats anything I ever thought I would see. I knew the day would come because the bible said it would. I just didn't realize I would live to see it. Morality is dying off at such a fast pace until it makes my head spin. Anything goes except that which is right and good. I hurt for my younger child and grandson.
