Again, it is only designed to divert you from the correct path challenging their false beliefs that you are obviously on. And let me say for the record that truth does not mind being challenged. Falsehood absolutely detests having to explain itself. Truth will always be true and stable. Falsehood will always be variable and slippery, and it may never even be the same from moment to moment as it changes to fit selfish or even evil purposes. But getting back to the original point, there must be causation for events to happen, especially the many good events that occur in our world. People often forget what the Bible tells us that “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not” (Lam. 3:22). We live in a sinful, fallen world where so many bad things happen because this is the normal default. All bad things are the default all the time for everyone. So if there is good happening in their lives, then there is the causation of a loving God making them happen.
Yet, in spite of this truth, there are so many people that believe that good automatically happens to them and that they deserve it. They believe that all life is some kind of crap-shoot of events with nothing causing the various events in it. It is even captured in the popular, and oh so misguided, song “It Happens” by Sugarland. This song is trying to convey the idea that all of life’s events are just chance occurrences on the big roulette wheel of life, so we should just let go and enjoy the ride. Mind you, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying life. I truly believe that God wants us to enjoy and celebrate life, but He wants us to do so in the right conditions, in the correct framework for which we were created, in the more meaningful, thankful, and humble path of His intricate plans for us and those around us. He wants us to recognize that He is bringing all the various good things into our life, and we should be, therefore, grateful to Him and telling Him that we are grateful as often as we can remember to do so. Unfortunately, few people do remember and then tell Him. This is the false “entitlement” mentality (writ large) that so many have recognized in the meaningless, seemingly endless welfare cycle that we have created in modern America that leads to nothing but cultural decay and broken lives. Without any reason to do so, people just believe that they deserve everything that comes to them, but everyone that thinks this way deserves it less than anyone, because such thinking reveals a sinful, prideful mentality that is far from God.
