Perspectives, The Journey Continues

Do you get mad or do you say thanks?

Many mad at God in tough times…Although people rarely talk about it, almost everyone experiences anger toward God at some point in their lives, commonly after the diagnosis of a serious illness, the death of a loved one or a trauma.In fact, nearly two out of three people report that they’ve felt angry at God, according to a study in the January issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. And many get angry because they believe that God is responsible for the negative events in their lives.Those who reported being more religious were less likely to get angry with God when bad things happened to them.“People who are more religious don’t get as angry. They may be more likely to think God caused the troubling event, but they’re also more likely to put good intentions on the event, saying things like, ‘God is trying to strengthen me,’” explained study author Julie Exline.
