Saints and Soldiers.

I just watched the movie "Saints and Soldiers." It had a profound dialogue in it. One atheist type was a medic, filled with hate for the German "krauts". He described watching a dying man call for God's mercy over and over. "He was so sincere, I thought it might actually work. Then he died and his eyes were empty. That is when I knew there was no God."

The Christian he was talking to describe an similar scene. Holding a dying man, praying with him and then he died. "He went to a better place."

The atheist said "how convenient for you."

The Christian replied, "Funny, I thought the same thing."

Funny how we find the answers WE want rather than what God is trying to show us in all the suffering in the world.
