On another wonderful and inspiring edition of the 700 Club today, Pat Robertson came up with a unique approach to consoling a mother whose 3 year-old child passed away tragically.
A viewer asked for some advice on how she should respond to a co-worker’s question of “Why did God allow my baby to die?” Robertson suggested that it’s possible that the coworker’s three-year-old child died as a result of human error at the hospital: “Are you going to blame that on God? That’s not God, that’s people who are making mistakes.”
But then again, the child could have turned out to be the next Hitler or Stalin. Who knows?
“As far as God’s concerned, he knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease,” Robertson said. “God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing.”
