God isn't a Genie bro. He doesn't grant wishes. He want's to bless you, but it isn't until you pray and align your desires with His that he can do so.

You have no clue. Do you have any idea how much effort is going into AIDS research and into African nutritional suppliments?
A maximum effort is being made to help those in Africa suffering from these problems. More can always be done, but with the current resources and cash flow, we're doing what we can.

So, since you're apparently concerned with the issue, what are you doing to help solve it?

Bottomline to this African line of reasoning is this:

I can't tell you why it appears that God isn't doing anything in Africa to help relieve the disease and hunger. What I can tell you is that pestilence and famine have been around since the dawn of time and according to a Christian worldview it's a result of sin entering the world. Also, while God answered this prayer of mine, I've still gone through some things in my life that were so hard I would've rather just gone home to be with God.

So, it isn't like God has all His energy focused on me and Crunchberries as I've endured hardship just like the rest of humanity has at one time in their lives or another. I'm also very sure that if you guys who bring up the Africans were to actually care about that rather than just bring it up here you'd find personal stories of people who experienced the miraculous/providence/blessing in the face of their terrible situations. I know it has happened because I've seen some of the stories. They don't minimize the fact that much of that continent is in a state of turmoil but the stories of hope do exist.

I believe god helps those that help themselves. Shaka didn't say he wouldn't do anything until I get some captain crunch and EXPECT for Him to deliver. He was possibly blessed because he was in God's favor and didn't expect it.

Besides, want to end aids and famine? Don't have sex. That would be a huge part. I mean, who says, 'I'm not sure what will kill me first aids or famine." And then has kids to which they pass on the disease and make the food shortage worse! They should drop off condoms with the aid they send.

You are obviously oblivious to the current AIDS situation in Africa. In America, you are correct. Africa is beyond that point. The childeren are born with these desieses. It is not their fault they have aids.
I felt the same way as you before attending the "Walk Through Africa" exibit. It is heart breaking, the situation over there.

It sucks. I've seen some documentaries and read about some of the stuff that goes on. It really is heart breaking and I feel blessed that I live in this country. If infected people stopped having infected babies then that would help a little. Not to mention if you can't feed the 7 kids you have now, why have 2 more?

Clearly many of you need to take some courses in Economics! I don't mean this as rude but wow! Firstly, if you want to help Africa, the current aid method is absolutely laughable and terrible. My friends father spent a year one of the African ports (can't remember where sorry) to basically help with import/exports of aid. The corruption was so terrible he could hardly talk about it. Computers were sent and the power bars for them would be 'backed up' for 4 years... He helped set up schools with those computers knowing damn well they'll be broken before the power bars are ever released.

Monetary aid is being protested by the big supporters of African Aid because it all goes into corrupt governments and not to the people. Hell, many of the worlds countries would be wise to STOP selling Africans guns and ammunitions/supporting corrupt regimes. It would also be lovely if the Catholic church would stop banning the provision of Condoms to these areas! I know many of you see sex as a sin, good but you're perceptions are KILLING THEM by the thousands. Give them condoms and let God sort them out on judgment day.

On the topic on aids and sex, unfortunately many girls are raped in Africa, the sex isn't always voluntary and if you blame these victims for catching aids shame on you. Plain and simple. Also, the only economical way of surviving in these areas is large family sizes. This isn't up for debate, the best form of 'birth control' is a higher standard of living. Christians used to have massive families until their standard of living rose and then it shrunk and has continued to shrink across all first world nations. You need farm hands and a labour force to survive in Africa, this is economics people.

Lastly, you want to help Africa? Do it through economic means! Take off the tariffs that plague African goods and makes it very difficult for them to compete in the world markets. IF the entire continent of Africa gained 1% of the worlds GDP the extra money they receive would dwarf the aid the world gives them annually.

IF God does exist, I truly hope he holds his promise that the poor shall inherit the earth because the people of Africa were condemned to Hell of earth - Many of them carry burdens heavier than Jesus did when he died on the cross.

/rant

Jr

P.S - Don't donate money to charity (Christian ones) If you truly want to help these people, send money to the microloan charities that the nobel peace winner set up (and won the prize for). They give out extremely small loans (2-10$ usually) and they have been extremely successful in helping some of the poorest on earth become self sufficient members of their communities.

I'm glad your day was brightened by that experience. However as others have said, it seems quite a bit more likely that your faith created the idea it was a miracle, not the actual event itself.

Never said it was a miracle. To put it non-secularly as I stated in my preamble (I believe).....what you see as coincidence, I see as providence.

Oh, and I actually agree with you on many points JR.
