The standards of what qualifies as a miracle have really gone down. Now if that statue came to life, put its carpenter skills to work by building some new houses, and magically fed everyone with a few fish, I’d be really impressed.
Ask the statue for some relief funds and see if he’ll answer.
I would rather be awed by nature’s destructive potential, or stand at the base of some bedraggled, lone-surviving coconut palm and be in awe as well of nature’s resilience.
Maybe we should build houses in the shape of Jesus so it will always be left standing.
If you really believe this is real, then you believe god cared more about a statue of himself than all of those people’s lives. Good job!
So many people sending prayers and messages of “god bless” to the people in the Philippines, but surely if you subscribe to their logic and beliefs it was God who sent the storm to mash up their country in the first place. this is cognitive dissonance, when one person holds conflicting beliefs or opinions. Ex: God is good, yet an act of God kills thousands.
