Starting August 1st I got a promotion! Right before that we were looking into buying a brand new car, so the timing was perfect. Isn't God good?! Yes!

So, does that mean that God isn't so good when things DON'T manage to work out your way? Or is he still good if things work out great for someone else of a different persuasion (e.g., an atheist, a pagan, an agnostic), even if the same occurrence that causes you grief?

Because you knew you were a candidate for said promotion, perhaps?

Yes, because Jesus was such an advocate of mindless consumerism, retail therapy and material desires.

I believe he was crucified for inventing \"I Can't believe it's not Manna\", as well as knocking out the first Fillet O' Fish Happy Meals for 5,000 consumers.

So anyway, of course he who lives by the sword dies by the sword and a few of his projects went belly up, and a focus group turned nasty when he failed a Pilate survey. (9/10 mobs prefer Barrabas)

OK, those little green bits of paper that say, \"In God we trust,\" AREN'T actually God.

Or to quote Douglas Adams:
Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small, unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much all of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

Well, good thing God was doing that instead of curing diseases or feeding the hungry, or else I might have to start believing in him!

I wonder if the recession struck you.

I moved 240 kilometers to join husband at his new job. One year later I was laid off due to the financial crisis from the US, just when we were starting to look for a house in the new region. God is not so good to us.

What makes you so important in God's eyes, and what did we do wrong? We are still members of the church and pay taxes, we were married in the church, we are faithful to each other, and do our best to treat others as we want to be treated.

God took some precious time out of his busy schedule and let a few hundred African children die simply to help you get a promotion. Feel special?

Maybe you got promoted because you're good at whatever you do? Give yourself some credit instead of thanking some non-existent dude.

Promotions aren't a surprise to most, raises maybe, but a promotion is something your usually in line for. So you pray for the likely?

Or:
Did someone die and open up that spot? Hopefully you prayed some superior opted for early retirement.

If she wants to believe "God did it" and she has no ability to make her own life better, whatever, let her delude herself. The only one who is effected is her.

Yes, as anyone who has read the parable of Lazarus and the rich man can tell you, god's only desire is to load its followers up with material things. God is your own personal genie, right? All hail god, god gives me bling!

Yeah! Helping you instead of those who really need it!

A shiny star on your name badge is not a promotion.

Take responsibility for your own actions, dammit! You did good! You! Not that sick apparition you call a god!
