A few weeks ago, Stuart Shepard from Focus on the Family created this now-slightly-famous video in which he suggested that Christians should pray for rain during Barack Obama’s acceptance speech:
Well, Obama gave his speech, and it didn’t rain.
The problem with such a public and specific prayer request is that if nothing happens, Shepard’s got some awkward explaining to do. I mean, doesn’t one of the following five statements have to be true?
- God doesn’t exist.
- God can’t make it rain.
- God doesn’t respond to prayer.
- God likes Obama more than he likes Focus on the Family.
- God thinks Stuart Shepard is a jerk.
