    Ebola survivor says God saved his life

    I guess God killed the other 90% of the people who get the disease.
    I know,God works in mysterious ways.He sure the he11 does.

    • I usually don't agree with you lake but you have a valid point. It's like the NASCAR racer that wins and says, I thank God for this win. So I can't thank God for coming in second, third or last?

      I think people give God credit for the following reasons 1. to appeal to other religious people 2. to appear humble 3. to give credit to a higher being

      Aside that, I think the Ebola survivor is grateful for still being alive and wants to say/give thanks for that reason. As he can not give credit to anything else (medicine, doctors, his own ability), give credit to God.

      It does appear warped because eventually everyone dies.

      • therealitycheck the bible actually says (not people) that in ALL THINGS you give God the glory.

        So yes you come in second or do not finish God still get the glory if you follow the word of God.

        It is not about God making you a winner but about God being with you rather you win or lose and you had a day of life in which you did whatever you think God for.

        Of course an Ebola can give credit to doctors and nurses and medicine that does not take credit from God.
        To live or die is both of God. Man is the one who somehow has a problem seeing death as failure of God.
        Paul says it best. To die is gain and to live is Christ. One who believes they are saved by the Lord Jesus Christ may ask for life but like Jesus did not my will be done but your will be done.

        The only thing warped about giving thanks to God is mankind does not know what the word of God says about such things and instead uses the same type of "Worldly Wisdom" to see winning as from God and losing is not. Or living from Ebola is worthy of thanking God but dying is not. The word of God teaches that is not the case. Lake is not a source to understand the life in Christ as he is one who believes in the strong survives and to destroy the weak and defenseless assures that evolution will produce the superior human.
        Of course Hitler had this idea before Lake so Lake has no reason for pride in his idea.

    • ...and in your viewpoint he lived to evolve another day. Go worship your idol Karl Marx. Just enjoy the good news. Live and let live, but don't force me to pay for your pipe dreams.
