Burning Hut

Sharmey
By Sharmey

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small,uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.

Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions.

But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened: Everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger.
“God, how could you do this to me?” he cried.

Early next morning, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him.”How did you know I was here?” asked the weary man of his rescuers. “We saw your smoke signal,” they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going bad. But we
shouldn’t lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in
the midst of pain and suffering. Remember, next time your little
hut is burning to the ground–it just may be a smoke signal that
summons the grace of God.

GOODNIGHT EVERYONE! :)

So disagreeing and not having a religion is 'bashing'?

So sensitive aren't you? Will you religion crumble from a few denials that your 'god' exists?

Or maybe you're worried that someone may say something that makes sense, and 'wake up' the religious types...

And you are bashing the people who you say are bashing, so that makes you just as bad.

Time to change your username, I think.

I'm not bashing faith of anyone. I'm just fed up of religion on every blooming thread.

The next time your hut is burning to the ground, it just may be that you should have spent your time building a brick house and not praying to a god that doesn't exist. idiot.
