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.
