Why are some people saved by God's miracles and others are not?

    Why are some people saved by God's miracles and others are not?

    I was reading the question about miracles and saw that many people attributed being cured of disease/saved from accidents to God saving their lives. Why is it that some people have their lives spared by praying but others don't?  Are they less Christian or less deserving of miracles?  If you think it's all just a part of God's plan then what do you think the reasons are for letting some people continue to live and not others?

    (I'm not trying to be snarky or disparaging - I'm genuinely curious what people's thoughts are. Thanks.)

    What a marvelous question. To contemplate the reasons why and how God acts. To imagine that man can understand. To see patterns of logic that fit within man's sphere of understanding.
    How can stone in the Grand Canyon be around 2 billion years old and how can we know that? How can the dinosaurs be 100% extinct yet the crocodile, turtle and cockroach are still here? How does a sentient human come from chemicals and sludge? How can we be designed to love each other and have compassion?
    I reckon we shall never answer such questions. But it is good to think of them in awe.

    This is a very good question, I am likely not much help but wonder if it is possible that some people are believer's and others are not? Perhaps some choose to believe because they received some benefit or outcome they hoped or worked for whereas many have been simply taught from an early age about GOD and that his will is his and we will not/cannot understand or always agree with it. Like you, I also am not trying to be snarky or disparaging. I have also wondered about this and look forward to seeing the answers and experiences of others.

    This was the conundrum that led me to eventually use logic to arrive at the position that I hold now.  It just makes absolutely no sense to hold contradictory realities at the same time.  And no matter how mysterious God is supposed to be( which is another contradiction, since it is stated in the bible WHO God is, and WHAT he requires of us, and WHAT his promises are to us)it left me with still no answer...except that God is......imaginary!  Occam's Razor is usually the best method.

    I don't know why I wanted to share, I know this is off to your topic, but somehow related with God. "Faith in God". I am a member of small group Christian organization, for almost every night of Wednesday after office work, I always go to that org. we always go to house of people and put the saint's images and share some words of God thru bible, I was so blessed at that time, then one day I realized that I am tired, I got tired of every Wednesday that I have to go every houses just to share words of God. My reason is I am only human and get tired of every thing, then one day I got a bad news that I don't think I can handle and can ruin my professional career, I cried a lot, I always feel the pain until now, Then one day I go to church crying, I go back with Jesus Christ and asked for his forgiveness. My point is that, God will make a way to get his child back to Him. Somehow, he saved me but still yap, got a little bit problem coz it's not really settle. But when I came back with Jesus as his child, when I told him my problem, I felt relieved. I know he will guide and save me, because I gave my trust and have faith on Him.
