Where was God when the plane crashed today?
Who knows, maybe he was busy listening to a family in Bakersfield give thanks for the meatloaf and potatoes they were about to enjoy.

not well informed on this mornings plane crash however ----------ok bout plan crashes ---god is in the same place. why does bad stuff happen, often because we dont listen. we saw 911 comining long b4 it arrived.
every good thing that happens in my life i attribute to god. every rotten thing usually my own mistakes or at least an opportunity to learn. amazing how often the mistakes are repairable.
my mind is not focused on an omnipotent devil who reeked havoc on my life daily, that i call devil worship.

Especially as there was a human rights activist on board described by one of her colleagues as 'irreplaceable' and a 'truly wonderful, great human being.' Not good enough to warrant God's saving hand obviously.

Where was "god"?... As a Gnostic Christian, I have an answer!...

HE WAS LAUGHING AT THE PEOPLE DYING AND SAVORING THEIR SCREAMS WITH SADISTIC DELIGHT

"god" did not have any "inaction", but his action was to watch the plane crash and no doubt eat his celestial popcorn and watch. Why do you think he created life? So that he could have A:, a play thing to enjoy inflicting harm on and B:, a a group of people to kiss his giant, divine rump in "praise and worship". When you are suffering, know that your creator laughs.

The greatest trick the devil ever played was NOT convincing the world he doesn't exist, but was convincing the world that he is not the "god" of the Old Testament.

Just look at the suffering Yaldabaoth brings upon the world: it is clear that the "loving creator" is anything but. That is why our worship is only directed towards that-which-came-before-the-creator, the GREAT LIGHT that is beyond this world, that is what we call GOD, not the satan, the ruler and creator of the world.

You're saying that God the creator and satan are one and the same? And you worship this great light which came before the creator...Ok...if you accused God the creator of all these crimes of human suffering etc, what is your great light's role in all these? Why is this great light not doing anything to help you guys?

Maybe if we replace our concept of "God" as some "person" looking down and pulling strings and replace it with "Life" more akin to a Force that is capable of truly miraculous actions or letting the mundane meanderings of a young civilization play out we'll begin to understand how the universe actually works.

There's a lot of ungratefulness in this post for the mere gift of life and consciousness in this post...

I think we're all told that the hours my come like a thief in the night.... But really, does it make any difference when one dies? To but have lived and given praise for that is enough.
