Thats a lot of dancing around the subject, tactfully done. I would imagine this is quite an uncomfortable question for you.

If you can't pray for a miracle in the cockpit of a crashing plane, why would you pray at any other time.

Its that simple.


There was no dancing in my answer. It was a straight forward answer

If he is a Christian, his responsibility is to use the tools, wisdom, and skills that God bestowed upon him to save the lives of his passengers. Not to pray while the plane is screaming nose first towards the Earth. The actions of a person are just as important as a prayer.

Those views are very reasoned, they are just diametrically opposed to the ideas of Christianity.

How so? If I prayed to God this morning to give me the strength to be a better person today than I was yesterday, and this afternoon i was faced with a traumatic experience, say a car accident. The instant I see somebody is seriously injured, I jump in to try and save this individual with CPR or what have you. During this time of panic, I do not pray. I rely on the prayer I said in the morning to give me the strength and wisdom to help me help the injured person. How is that diametrically opposed to Christianity? As a Christian, you think that I am taught that God's Will is in play and I should ignore what's happening to give Him thanks and praise because the outcome is predetermined?

Until you are shoved into a traumatic experience, it's really hard to know what you will and won't do. You usually can't remember WHAT you did. That's for people on both sides of this spat.
