Consider the following news item:
DAPHNE, Ala.—Worried about the safety of her family during a stormy Memorial Day trip to the beach, Clara Jean Brown stood in her kitchen and prayed for their safe return as a strong thunderstorm rumbled through Baldwin County, Alabama.
But while she prayed, lightning suddenly exploded, blowing through the linoleum and leaving a blackened area on the concrete. Brown wound up on the floor, dazed and disoriented by the blast but otherwise uninjured.
She said ‘Amen’ and the room was engulfed in a huge ball of fire.
You would think that this might be enough to put a little shadow of a doubt into Clara Brown’s head about the whole God concept or at least in regards to the usefulness of prayer. That would be a terrible underestimation of the Power of Wishful Thinking!
The 65-year-old Brown said she is blessed to be alive.
The woman, while praying for the safety of her family, is literally knocked on her ass by a lightening bolt that sets her whole friggin’ kitchen on fire and she feels blessed by her God. The power of
willful ignorance faith is truly an amazing thing. God loved her so much that he set her only kitchen on fire as payment for the safe return of her family from a outing at the beach. Whattaguy!
