Why do some people preach that venereal diseases are God's punishment but...


ignore the obvious contradiction? Example: a person in my neighborhood claims a child that acquires AIDS is "paying" for the sin of premarital sex (even though the child contracted this disease via a blood transfusion). Yet, if Ms. Know-it-all-Neighbor is right, why would she knowingly attend church services while suffering from a stomach virus? Isn't she knowingly putting others at risk - and if someone catches her virus, by her definition, aren't they "paying" for her sin of indifference?

    I thought gods were allknowing What is the value of a test if the results are known before the test is given. Befor you are born. Is the god of Islam less powerful then other gods who are allknowing. But they too test. Something askew here.
