Can God Go Where He Isn’t Allowed Or Wanted? Does God Go Where He Isn’t Allowed Or Wanted?
Christian extremists have claimed that God didn’t protect the children who were killed in the mass shooting in Newtown (Connecticut) on Friday, because God isn’t allowed or wanted in schools, and God doesn’t go where he isn’t allowed or wanted. In the Bible, there are numerous examples of God going where he wasn’t allowed or wanted. He came to Earth and allowed Noah to survive a flood that wiped out all of the people who rejected him. He came to Egypt and rescued the Israelites when the Egyptians didn’t want him in their country. Jesus, who Christians believe is the son of God, was so unwelcome on Earth that he was crucified. Jesus is the primary proof for Christians, that God can and does go where he isn’t allowed or wanted.
