Proving that God's Plan is impossible|
By watching this short video, you will be able to prove to yourself that the idea of ďGodís PlanĒ is impossible. The goal of this video is to help believers understand this simple fact.
If you believe in God, then you are familiar with Godís Plan. "God's plan" is the way that believers traditionally explain things like amputations, cancer, hurricanes and car accidents. Even if something bad happens, it is actually good because it is part of God's plan.
If you have ever seen this book, you know how pervasive the concept of Godís Plan is. The book is called ďA purpose driven life.Ē According to the cover, it is a #1 New york times best seller. It has sold more than 20 million copies.
We find this remarkable paragraph in Chapter 2:
If you are a normal, intelligent person, and if you think about Godís plan for more than 30 seconds, you quickly realize that Godís plan is ridiculous, and impossible. Letís look at four implications of Godís plan.
Implication #1 Ė God plans all abortions
The book says: "He planned the days of your life in advance, choosing the exact time of your birth and death." Let's examine one simple implication of this statement. What this means is that God has pre-planned every abortion that has taken place on our planet.
In addition, the mother who requests the abortion and the doctor who performs it are blameless. Since it is God who planned the abortion of the child (God chose the "exact time" of the death), the mother and doctor are simply puppets who are fulfilling God's plan. You can also see that all the Christians who are fighting against abortion are missing the point. They are actually fighting against God's plan, and their fight is completely futile. God is the all-powerful ruler of the universe, and his plan is for more than a million children a year to die in the United States through abortion. Each one of those abortions was meticulously planned by God, so fighting against abortion is a totally wasted effort.
Implication #2 Ė God plans all murders
In the same way, if God chooses the "exact time" of death, then all murders are planned by God, and murderers are simply Godís puppets. Murderers are completely blameless.
Implication #3 Ė God plans many rapes
Since God decided when you would be born, and God knew who your parents would be, It means that every rape resulting in a conception must be part of Godís plan. All of these rapists should be rewarded for fulfilling godís plan.
Implication #4 Ė You have no free will and prayer is meaningless
Who will you marry? You have no choice. Your spouse was pre-chosen by God for you so that you would create the children who are a part of his plan. You also have no choice in the number of children you will have -- God has pre-planned their births. Where will you live? God plans that too.
So let's review
Do you believe that:
It is time for us to state the truth. ďGodís PlanĒ is ridiculous. There is no ďplanĒ. The statement "It is part of God's plan" is one of those meaningless ideas that believers use because they do not think about what they believe. If they would think, and if they would look at the data all around them, they would very quickly realize that Godís plan is impossible and that God is imaginary.
