I dont know if this is the right place for this but I want to tell you all what I just did. We recently had a re-certification class in BTLS (Basic Trauma Life Support). Its a class that teaches Paramedics new changes in trauma care. The book we used was a great teaching aid. But, in the back of the book the authors described trauma as a preventable  illness. In that they said the public was mis-conceived about injuries and accidents being an unavoidable "act of God" and other descriptions.  They went on to say death from injuries and accidents are preventable and are no "act of God".  Well this made me furious.  I wrote the authors and told them how I believe in God, that all things are in fact an act of God.  They described injury as an illness and epidemic. I told them that illness and epidemics are an act of God as well. I asked them to remove the item from the book and not to speak for Christians everywhere. I told them Christians are not mis-conceived.  I told them I would talk to my training department and request to use another book if this issue was not handled properly. I expect them to contact me with an answer and response and as soon as I hear one I will post it here.  Standing up for Christ!!!!

Amen, standing up for Christ is the only way to go. However I must disagree slightly. Accidents and illness are not necessarily an act of God. Accidents, illness and death was brought into this world through the sins of man, so man brought these things onto themselves. Not all accidents and illness are preventable. Due to sin being in the world those things are here and as long as we are here we will have to suffer through them. Yes, we can take some precautions and keep them to a minimum but we will not avoid them all. It is inevitable that we will become sick or hurt and this fleshy body will eventually die.

Praise God that through His wonderful mercies He has given us a way out from the sins of mankind and given us the gift of eternal life.

It is unfortunate that the author of that book felt it necessary though to make such a statement about God and Christians. It is just one more evidence that we are headed into a time of persecution.

I know its due to sin but I didnt want to go into that much detail with the publisher. I just wanted to make a statement. If they write me back or contact me I will let you know what they said and we will brainstorm a response. I am a Christian but I dont truely know the Bible inside and out. You guys are very blessed to have a lot of knowledge about the Bible. Thats why I like this site.

All the glory belongs to God as any knowledge and wisdom we have comes from Him.

Amen,
And do not sell yourself short as far as your knowledge is concerned.  I cannot tell you what chapter and verse the story of the Prodigal son is in...but I know the story. 

And anytime you need anything feel free to drop a line.
