What IS God responsible for??

Welcome to my new blog…thanks Tom Wynne 🙂

I read this interesting comment on an online news story and I thought it was great.

Just what is god responsible for? From my perspective, god is not responsible for an earthquake nor those that are killed, but he is responsible for saving those who are not killed. God is not responsible for war, but he is responsible for a successful sporting moment. God is not responsible for drought and famine, but he is responsible for rain. God is not responsible for disease, but he is responsible for unexpected cures. God is not responsible for the needless deaths of millions across the planet through starvation, war, pestilence, disease, but he is responsible for an Oscar winner, or an Emmy winner or an Australian Idol winner. What the christian religion has is a “get out” clause for god. Everything good is attributed to god. Everything bad is attributed to man’s free will magnimously granted to us by god. I’ve decided. I want god’s job. All the cudos. None of the blame

Pretty good question I reckon.
