Boy claims God saved him from stray bullet

A 9-year-old has attributed divine intervention to his near miss with a bullet fired through his window.

Preston Stevens was in his bedroom in Boston when he narrowly avoided being hit by a stray bullet that came through his window after claiming to have felt a mysterious force push him to one side moments before. The bullet was so close that it made a hole in the jersey he was wearing yet managed to miss his torso. Preston believes that he survived because God was looking out for him.

"A 9-year-old Boston boy says divine intervention saved his life when a bullet fired in the street outside his home came through his bedroom wall and left a smoking hole in the Boston Celtics jersey he was wearing."

You do realize that the bible was written by men......not god......and that the writings of some men, and all of the writings that women tried to contribute were refused entry into the bible? I have never actually read the entire bible and I know that I never will, as there is too much violence and too many orders to do this and not do that............and certainly not enough love and forgiveness mentioned within it's covers. I don't believe that the bible answers any of the questions that I have of this world and this life that I have. I have nothing against anyone that believes ... [More]

Yes? The article is what basis I have. I was commenting the OP and this particular article. I'm not going to research every article here to try to figure out how true and accurate it is unless it is a matter that I am really interested in. And I had absolutely no way of knowing it was made-up just from it alone. Besides, it was sarcastic. I thought it was obvious. I am sorry that it might have offended you. That was not my intention. I still think it's a good one. Peace.

I certainly don't understand why God chooses one life to extend and allows another to be "cut short". But I think perhaps it's because the length of a human life from His perspective is incredibly brief and no matter how much pain we may suffer in this body, it is completely forgotten once we are resurrected. This is my idea only. No ure to back it up. As to the OP, if he thinks it might have been God then I see no problem even if it wasn't. I look on faith as a positive force in our lives. The only exception I can think of to this is people who withold medical trea... [More]

Of course life is brief, especially in comparison to astronomical terms. You would think that, given the fact that our lives are so brief, he would allow us to live them for what limited time we have, instead of cutting it short. It doesn't make sense to me as to why he would, for example, allow a bus full of children burn, killing them all, yet allow an individual with no chance of leading a normal life (ie. one in a vegetative state) to live. Why would he allow a serial rapist to survive, while allowing his victim to die? He works in mysterious ways. He seems to be a pretty sadistic SO... [More]

On my own behalf - I personally cannot make that assumption...If I am to be most honest and speak about facts and not just a belief I hold I would say - I do not know what God will do, and I do not beleive anyone does.. There is more to it than just holding a belief in God.. It is how you lead your life.. A believer in God can hold the belief ok, but lead a life of evil and do wrong...just like anyone else... But I cannot know what God will do...I believe that God will be he only decider .. The simple truth to it all is, we all will not know until we die...So until then we each wi... [More]

You're certainly not alone in that opinion. But for those of us who do believe(simple minded lot that we are) we also wonder about what seems to be these inconsistencies and injustices. I've often thought that we all have some purpose for which we were born into the world and when that is accomplished we step out of one dimension and into another. Perhaps the entire purpose of some lives is to effect change in another and it can be accomplished in the death of a child. For those who have no faith in an afterlife I agree that cutting this physical sojourn short seems incredibly c... [More]

If he can burn images of Jesus and Mary on toast, why not?
