Who said it was God doing the blessing? I think you need to read the temptations of Jesus in Matthew. The devil promised Him the WHOLE WORLD IF He would but worship him(the devil).

So those people who seem to get everything their hearts desire, also need to realize the most precious gift EVER given to mankind, is also withheld from them, and this life is the only life they will see.

Who judges them as successful? What is the measure of that - wealth, fame? Fame to me would be a curse. More money than sense also breeds its own unhappiness. And how do you know that they are any happier - or will be happier in the very long run - than you or me living simply? Best not to judge or covet. Unless you know the person's true heart and soul.

I think some people get rich through hard work and some get rich through talent, and some just get lucky.....there is no unseen powerforce that is orchestrating it....or allowing it, or disallowing it.

Maybe he doesn't care one way or another if they succeed or fail. Maybe they're successful by means of hard work and a few lucky breaks.

Why would you think God is worried about such trivial nonsense?

Well I guess if he lets Dio in, that might be at least one good reason to want to go to heaven

Search for "Bohemian Grove" in Google or some other search engine for an alternate view.

I have seen this as well. I don't think God has anything to do with it. The Illuminati and BS artist that do that whole thing are working directly with Satan. That is how they are successful. Don't forget Satan was the person of music in the bible. But don't worry. Their temporary Earthly success will not prosper or last very long. There is a special place waiting for those who worship Lucifer.
