Will flattery get you anywhere?


It is bewildering to me why people praise God when someone is suffering. As if flattering God will cause him to intervene and help the sufferer. Maybe they actually believe it will.

In my family there have been a few recent examples. A couple of them went ahead and died after people said God was healing them. (“Praise Him and His wisdom”) One guy is suffering now, but may actually recover. I guess God liked the flattery this time, but not the other times.

God is vile.
