My wife was watching a movie on the Hallmark channel called A Christmas Wish. It was a sappy movie typical of this channel but what really got to me was the message that God will throw bad things at you until you pray to him. This message made me mad. I call this psychological torture.
If I did this to another person I would be an evil person for trying to manipulate the other person into be dependent on me. I think people have gone to jail for less.
I just cannot get over how cruel the main character was treated by God until she begged him to help. Then everything was all better. Ugh.
