"God was pretty useless to Mary, don't you think? She really needs a place to have his baby. She didn't even consent to have it, he dumped it on her, and he can't even give her lodging. She has to have it in a barn. Way to go, God. Can't even help the woman you dumped a baby on."
Actually, you are missing the point of the story.
Society back then did not care about women or unwed mothers -- especially women who were so poor that they had to have their baby in a barn.
The point of the story is that god still cares about you even when no one else does.
You sound like a spoiled brat if you always think that compassion means material wealth & comfort.
Should God have given her caviar and bon-bons?
ned f, God was pretty useless to Mary, don't you think? 46 Comments
