God's track record in making mistakes is long. Perhaps, the biggest happened early in his creative endeavors when he destroyed the world because his people were having a good time and ignoring him. Who needed the bother? He didn't get it right in first attempt. I would call that a major error, one that most Christians ignore.
Of course, I'm leading up to something and it is the number of posts saying "God Doesn't Make Mistakes" that hit my time line in any given week. Fiinally, I decided to give my Facebook "friends," including relatives my look at God's tally.
Since they are able to overlook their own "biblical" facts. (It's in their book) I decided to point it out to them along with a few other things. First, I just quoted a few lines from "All God's Mistakes" by Charles L. Bosk, which is piece of research dealing with birth anomalies from the stand point of the bearer of bad news. Speaking of his research, Bosk details the often difficult decisions that confront parents of newborns suffering genetic birth defects. While investigating the emotional as well as professional aspects of life altering circumstances, Bosk provides excellent technical discussion of prenatal diagnosis and early detection of diseases like spina bifida, sickle-cell and hemophilia. Then I inserted this:
Of course, I've been unfriended by family and friend, and you know what? I don't give a shit. These folks must live in a world of cognitive dissonance. On the other hand, they are unaware they been sold a bill of goods. And, I still don't give a shit.
