Christianity would have more credibility if most Christians would stop with the miracles nonsense. I’m left to assume that those 5 children died a horrific death because there were just too many other Christians who had lost their keys.

This is the same old nonsense we've already discussed many times before on this forum.

God/Jesus never said or ever indicated that he would run to our rescue, save us from the flying bullet, etc. Anyone saying otherwise is completely ignorant of what the Bible says (the usual case), or wants to lie about Judaism and Christianity.

We are born to die. None of us can escape it. Life is imperfect. We all know that, and the Bible speaks to that.

The ideal for Christians and non-believers alike is to make the most of everyday. Jesus even talks about not worrying about tomorrow, and focusing on today. There are scriptures along those lines.

Beyond all of that, Jesus didn't come to "do things for us". He lived as an example, as a teacher. His life can be modeled or not, but that's up to each person. People are stupidly trying to change him into a bodyguard.

I am puzzled by how believers give credit for good happenings to God, but do not give God credit or responsibility for bad happenings.

What if neither is the case?

Maybe we should stop playing the guessing game, and start focusing on living our lives. We can't know the mind of God, and what events and happenings are connected with him or not. Christians especially should stop foolishly guessing or assuming.

There's no law in the universe that indicates that we have to have explain everything and understand everything. It's quite the contrary. Might as well recognize that and leave those as unknowns.

I truly do believe that children and infants tried very hard to not worry about tomorrow and tried to lead exemplary lives

You're really funny. Children and infants - too young to understand, as well as any with mental issues - aren't treated like the rest of us. But go ahead and continue with your smear tactics if that makes you feel better about yourself.
