This posting really alarmed me. I believe it is very dangerous to claim that God actually sends trouble, sorrow and difficulty on individuals. Some may then assume and assert that God is to blame for all the social ills, physical catastrophes and world diseases that afflict humankind. Others may instantly see themselves as guilty of some unknown sin simply because their experiences are less than happy. Whilst God may make use of the negative experiences that befall us or result from our wrongdoing, they are not part of his plan for us, as the Bible repeatedly tells us.
And as for every child being encouraged to think about death... Children who do not live in the moment, who either dwell on the past or concern themselves about the future are behaving unnaturally. Jesus preaches that adults should emulate children in this very respect.
I am sorry, but I am at a loss to understand what positive message this posting brings. I see problems associated with its doctrine and find nothing in the extract to commend it.
